The media may be whipping itself into a frenzy over the farcical Mayweather v MacGregor fight – that threatens to drag boxing and MMA into even more ridicule – but judo fans are concentrating on the Central European country of Hungary and its capital city Budapest.
The 2017 World Championships kicks off on Monday 28 August, with the action being streamed live via the International Judo Federation website.
The timetable can be found on the Championships website. The action will commence with the lightest weights (-48kg women, -60kg men) and culminate with a team event Sunday 3 September.
British Judo has announced a 12 strong team for the event, including 6 Olympians. Great Britain has won several World Championship medals, although our last was far too long ago!
