It would be a hard-pressed tout that would sell tickets for a battle between two aging Irishmen in grey suits at an upmarket Brazilian hotel.
But such is the 'rift in Rio' between Sports Minister Shane Ross and Olympic Council of Ireland President Pat Hickey that it is fast turning into the only fight that will go the distance.
There was no knock-out punch when the duo came face-to-face yesterday to debate the ticket tout fiasco - instead we got two emblems of controversy backing each other into separate corners.
