Tyson Fury sets retirement date

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Joshua: Tyson Fury won’t distract me Tyson Fury has revealed he could retire from boxing by the end of the year. The former heavyweight world champion has said he will fight three more times – including against Deontay Wilder next month – before hanging up his gloves. Fury will bid to become a two-weight ruler on February 22 when he challenges Wilder for a second time following their controversial draw in 2018. He could then face Wilder for a third time this summer – leaving just one more fight before he retires. Responding to promoter Lou Di Bella and WBO president Paco Valcarcel’s suggestion he fights Bakhodir Djalolov, the Briton said: “You think I’m going to wait around for a six-fight novice to build up, haha; I got three fights left I’m out.” Fury was dropped twice by Wilder in their first fight but had still done enough to win before the ringside judges scored the bout a draw. The giant Traveller has fought twice since, beating Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin, while Wilder has knocked out Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz. The loser of the rematch will have the right to call for a third fight – and earn 40 per cent of the purse. Should Fury win both fights, he could sign off his career with a clash with Anthony Joshua who regained his three heavyweight titles by outpointing Andy Ruiz Jr in their rematch last month. Joshua may first have to face mandatory challengers Kubrat Pulev and Oleksandr Usyk before any unification clash with either Fury or Wilder. Fury and Wilder will not face the press before fight week in Las Vegas with the former claiming his rival is running scared. He said: “This is Tyson Fury AKA the Gypsy King this is a message to Deontay the Bronze Bomber the big p***y Wilder. “He’s not turned up to any of the media events today, blagging he’s got the flu because he doesn’t want to be in the same room as me because I’ll take him to school. “His management team and his full team are afraid to put Deontay Wilder in the same room as Tyson Fury, facts. “Keep him away Al, keep him away Shelly, keep him away his wife. “Deontay, what a little bitch you’ve become. You can’t even come and see me and be face-to-face with me as you know you’ll be taken to school… p***y.”Tags: Lou Di BellaPaco ValcarcelRetirementTyson Furylast_img read more

Miami Infectious Diseases Specialist Says Coronavirus “Likely Won’t Kill You”

first_imgThe Wuhan coronavirus has now killed more than 900 people and there are more than 40-thousand confirmed cases around the world, with the vast majority in China. Jen and Bill just talked with infectious diseases specialist Dr. Aileen Marty from FIU Monday and asked her if the coronavirus is going to kill us.Her answer, “No you have a 98% chance of not dying from the coronavirus.”Dr Aileen Marty won’t dieAileen M. Marty, M.D., F.A.C.P., is a professor of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine at the FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine.Bill also asked Dr. Marty if there’s a chance that this virus was manufactured in a lab which she doubted calling “Mother Nature the biggest terrorist.”Dr. Mary added that the virus originated in bats then spread to another animal. She said it’s important to figure out what that intermediate animal is.Finally Dr. Marty says the virus is spread from person to person within a 3-6 foot radius of a sneeze or cough, but the virus lives on surfaces for several hours so she suggests that you wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer to prevent contracting the disease.Listen to the full interview with Dr. Aileen Marty here.https://www.850wftl.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Dr-Elieen-Mardy-Coronavirus-2-10-20.mp3last_img read more

Paris police attacked, 158 arrested after PSG defeat

first_imgPARIS (Reuters) – Paris police were attacked, shops in the French capital were vandalised and 158 people were arrested after Paris Saint Germain’s loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League soccer final, the interior minister and police said on Monday.“The savagery of certain delinquents from last night: 16 members of the police forces injured, 12 shops attacked, around 15 cars vandalised,” Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin wrote on Twitter.The Paris police department said 158 people had been arrested for suspected theft or vandalism, with much of the trouble occurring around the Champs Elysees avenue where many fans had gathered for the game.Bayern Munich beat Paris Saint Germain (PSG) 1-0 in the final in Lisbon.PSG fans had already been involved in clashes in Paris with the police earlier on Sunday.

UW ready to say ‘aloha’

first_imgThe Wisconsin secondary has struggled all year and Hawaii will offer up a stiff challenge with star wide receiver Greg Salas.[/media-credit]Looking at almost any college football bowl predictions, experts will tell you the Wisconsin football team is headed to the Outback Bowl for a matchup with Auburn.Assuming they beat Hawaii this Saturday.This assumption should not be taken lightly as the Warriors will be fighting for their bowl lives in Aloha Stadium Saturday.After losing its first six conference games to start the season, Hawaii is rolling on a four game winning streak including a momentum-building 24-17 win last weekend.“Well, they were a 2-6 football team that has revived themselves very, very well,” UW head coach Bret Bielema said. “They were 2-6 and … regrouped and have played very well offensively and defensively. They have done some really good things in the kicking game. All four of these last games, none of them have really come easy, so they have earned each one of those victories.”As one of only two teams not to have clinched a bowl or been eliminated from contention — with Army being the other — the Warriors will have plenty of motivation on senior day.Currently on a 3-year bowl streak, the WAC school so far away from everyone will also be fighting to keep alive its hard-earned reputation as a decent football program.“Bottom line, if they win this game they are going to become bowl eligible for a very big bowl themselves,” Bielema said.Averaging 456.1 yards of total offense, including 348.7 yards through the air, the Badger corners will be tested once again. Exposed through mental mistakes against Northwestern two weeks ago, UW’s secondary will have to bounce back fairly quickly.Its first challenge? Stopping junior wide receiver Greg Salas, an offensive dynamo responsible for 103 receptions, 1,559 yards and eight touchdowns this season.“Our front four has to give pressure to help out our back end,” Bielema added.Given a bye week, Wisconsin has taken the same approach to fixing mistakes that they have all season.Hard work, hard work and, well… you know the rest.“Just like in the offseason we just know we have to work harder,” UW running back Zach Brown said. “It was a tough loss, but we are using the bye week time to get better.”Playing in a stadium four time zones away, the Badgers will face a host of challenges trying to stay prepared.Besides exams and warm weather serving as distractions, UW will also have to avoid looking toward the looming bowl game.“Honestly, we aren’t thinking about no bowl game,” Brown said. “We are worrying about Hawaii. That is our biggest game and we can’t look ahead. We just got to make sure we take care of Hawaii.”Not to be all business and no fun, Bielema has designated time for the players to relax and see the sites.Perhaps to inspire leadership, he mentioned going to Pearl Harbor.“The hard part for us is, because it is an extended stay, it has similarities to a bowl game,” Bielema said. “But obviously the game is going to be on us very, very quick. So we told our guys it is about focusing on the details of what we need to do to win Saturday.”“I am really excited,” Brown added. “Growing up, I was never a real big traveler and I never thought I would have a chance to go to Hawaii, so being able to do this is great and I am looking forward to it.”last_img read more

‘Bale Driven by Success Not Money’

first_img“The people like him who get to that level, that’s not really what motivates him. What motivates him is sticking the ball in the net, doing something amazing, achieving something with Wales no one’s ever achieved.”Coleman did describe Bale’s new deal as “crazy”, but also felt it was entirely justifiable in current market conditions.“It’s a ridiculous amount of money. We can’t seriously sit here and say it’s normal to play a game of football and earn that type of money,” he added.“But what would we do if we were offered that amount? We’re not going to say no to it. That’s the going rate.

We are looking forward to it,” Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said of the tie with Liverpool.“A tough cookie, but that’s something to look forward to as a player.”Klopp said: “It will be a tough one, an interesting one, and I am looking forward to it.”Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City take on German side Schalke 04 while Atletico Madrid, runners-up in 2014 and 2016, come up against Cristiano Ronaldo and Italian heavyweights Juventus.“A very difficult match, with few goals,” Juve vice-president Pavel Nedved predicted.“No doubt Cristiano is the man of the Champions League, he has always shown that, with goals and victories. Our team is very strong and we can be calm and confident.”Bundesliga leaders Dortmund will meet Tottenham Hotspur for the second season in a row, having faced each other in last year’s group stage, while Roma meet two-time former champions Porto.“We’ve already met them (Tottenham) twice. A strong opponent, the chances are at 50-50. The team has top players. We are also strong, it will be interesting,” Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke told Sky.United, at a low ebb after Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, meet PSG for the first time and a formidable task awaits against a side featuring Neymar and Kylian Mbappe – the world’s two most expensive players.“It’s always difficult to play Manchester United,” said PSG boss Thomas Tuchel.“They have lots of experience in this competition, they’ve won it numerous times. It’s always difficult to play at Old Trafford, it’s always a big challenge.“It’s the same thing against Mourinho. He has lots of experience in this competition and you must have respect,” he added.Manchester City’s director of football Txiki Begiristain warned the English champions will not have it easy against a Schalke outfit languishing in 13th place in Germany following a nightmare start.“Teams that have been struggling in their leagues have still they’ve done very well in the Champions League,” said Begiristain.“Schalke will be difficult. After a winter break, German clubs are always very dangerous.”Lyon coach Bruno Genesio says his team can draw on their group-stage displays against City – a 2-1 away win and 2-2 home draw – ahead of their clash with five-time European champions Barca.“We’ll need to pull off two big performances, in the first leg and in the return, but we can do it. We did it against City,” said Genesio.“It’s tough. They are a team that Lyon has already played against but never beaten. Barca are more experienced and stronger but over two matches anything is possible,” Gerard Houllier, who holds an advisory role at the French club, told RMC Sport.“The first match is key and we are playing at home. Barca are potential champions. We have nothing to lose. Everything is a bonus for Lyon.”Teams that finished in second place in the group stage will host the first legs on February 12/13 and 19/20 with the return matches scheduled for March 5/6 and 12/13.THE DRAWSchalke Vs Man CityAtletico Vs v JuventusMan Utd Vs PSGTottenham Vs DortmundLyon Vs BarcelonaAS Roma v PortoAjax v Real MadridLiverpool v BayernShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Liverpool will take on fellow five-time winners Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions League, while Jose Mourinho’s struggling Manchester United face French giants Paris Saint-Germain.Holders Real Madrid were paired with Ajax in Monday’s draw in Nyon as the Spaniards attempt to lift the trophy for the fifth time in six seasons, while Lionel Messi and Barcelona will play Lyon.Both Liverpool and Bayern have a rich tradition in the competition, with Jurgen Klopp returning to his homeland to face the side that beat his Borussia Dortmund team in the 2013 final.Liverpool, defeated finalists last season, are the current form side of the two and sit top of the Premier League while Bayern have been far short of their own high standards in the Bundesliga this term.last_img read more
