Exactly what the purpose behind this bout will be is currently unknown, however we do know that it is designed to promote Portuguese technology company MEO.
Their website states: “MEO is a brand that revolutionised the Telco market in Portugal.
“For the first time, a voice service provider also offered TV and internet services, using next generation optical fiber.”
As we said, quite how this relates to Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar pretending to punch one another about is, at present, still a mystery.
More from the campaign will likely be released in the coming weeks and we may even find out who won this battle for the ages.
