Tyson Fury rules out Joshua fight

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua, Okolie plot world title double Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Tyson Fury has ruled out an all-UK heavyweight fight with Anthony Joshua in 2020 due to his commitments in America. The Gypsy King is preparing for a February rematch with Deontay Wilder and does not currently have his eyes set on Anthony Joshua – who reclaimed his WBA, WBO and IBF titles with victory over Andy Ruiz Jr last week. Fury, 31, said he has more fights to have as part of his current television deal before he can focus on a bout with AJ, speaking with Behind The Gloves. “Whatever, I’ve got three fights left on my ESPN contract in America; Wilder – Wilder – and whoever else, another American,” said Fury. “So yeah, I’ll be pretty busy up until the end of this year and we’ll see what happens from there. “I can only focus on one fight at a time.” However, Joshua has said that either a fight with Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury must happen in 2020 as fans have waited long enough to see the best in the division go head-to-head. Fury did speak out on his fellow countryman becoming a two-time heavyweight champion, saying: “Fair play to AJ, he out boxed a fella who knocked him out before. It takes a lot of guts and boxing ability. “I thought he looked fantastic. I’ve heard the criticism. I’d rather win and stink the place out than lose in a very entertaining fight. “Let’s face it, no-one’s really interested in Ruiz and Joshua. They’re just two other heavyweights on a collision course. “The real fight is me and Wilder. This is the biggest heavyweight fight of my lifetime – won’t be a bigger one any time soon.”Tags: Anthony JoshuaDeontay WilderTyson Furylast_img read more

Machan ton helps Scots to big win

first_img Seamer Evans (four for 17) then shone with the ball as Ireland were shot out for just 117 in reply. Evans took the first four wickets to fall as Ireland collapsed from 57 without loss – Paul Stirling (37) and captain William Porterfield (23) seemingly laying a great platform for the run chase – to 77 for five in under five overs. The end was not long in coming after that with Josh Davey (two for 36) and Majid Haq (three for nine) running through the tail as Ireland were bowled out with almost half their allotted 50 overs unused. Aside from Stirling and Porterfield, Gary Wilson (15) was the only Ireland batsman to get into double figures as Scotland impressed with both bat and ball. Ireland begin their World Cup campaign against West Indies in Pool B on February 16, with Scotland facing New Zealand the following day in their Group A opener. Machan helped Scotland run up an imposing 296 for six batting first with a superb century, the 23-year-old Sussex player scoring 103 off 108 deliveries with four sixes and six fours at Blacktown Olympic Park Oval. Preston Mommsen (56), Richie Berrington (52) and opener Calum MacLeod (41) were also among the runs as Scotland, having won the toss, hit the ground running in their first official warm-up match. Matt Machan and Alasdair Evans did most of the damage as Scotland recorded a crushing 179-run victory over Ireland in Tuesday’s World Cup warm-up in Sydney.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Fulp’s post advertised “Bubba Rope” for sale on Facebook Marketplace the day after an FBI investigation determined the noose found at the Talladega Superspeedway garage had been there since at least October and was a coincidence, not a hate crime. In addition to his two stints as an assistant with Washington, he was also a head coach of the Phoenix Cardinals and Oakland Raiders and an assistant with the Chargers.
