Peruse the headlines and the conclusion is inescapable: the National Football League is populated by overpaid thugs who carry the sport’s on-field violence into their private lives – and, once their careers are over, are likely to end up with brain damage and dementia.

The Premier League are being urged to find a “strong” chairman to replace the former investment banker Anthony Fry, who has stepped down after only a year because of ill health. I understand there is high-level pressure from the clubs, the League’s own advisory board and even Westminster to appoint a senior figure in sport to keep a firmer grip on the game following recent unsavoury incidents.

Even by the bizarre standards of boxing's tales of the unexpected, the news that the veteran fight promoter Frank Maloney had undergone "gender re-assignment" and from now on is a woman known as Kellie ranks among the biggest bombshells to rock the sport.

Providing he isn't suspended by the Board of Control – he threatens not to attend the hearing on Wednesday into his foul-mouthed rant at a press conference – Tyson Fury will meet Dereck Chisora in their on-off heavyweight rematch at London's ExCel on 22 November. The new date was announced yesterday by promoter Frank Warren, doubtless with crossed fingers. With bouts now called off three times, Fury seems as fed up with the fight game as it is with him. Time for some new blood on the domestic heavyweight scene to supplement the burgeoning career of Olympic champion Anthony Joshua. Could be that the new Commonwealth Games champion Joe Joyce, an engaging character with his backflip and a degree (he says he is as much inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat as he is Muhammad Ali) will provide it. At 28 Joyce, from the same Earlsfield stable as Frank Bruno, may turn off the road to Rio and take the pro route if he gets "an unrefusable offer".
