‘Anthony Joshua’s fought no-one in their prime’ – Tyson Fury tears into AJ’s heavyweight record

Tyson Fury has rubbished Anthony Joshua's heavyweight record, stating that he has never fought one opponent during the prime of their career. The Gypsy King was due to meet Joshua in an undisputed clash this year, before an arbitrator ruled that he had to face Deontay Wilder in a trilogy fight. Joshua is also set to fight former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 25. Throughout his career, Joshua has picked up big victories over the likes of Wladimir Klitschko, Alexander Povetkin, Kubrat Pulev, and Joseph Parker. During an interview with former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, Fury was asked why boxing misses out on big fights such as the Gypsy King against Joshua. Fury said on Neville's The Overlap show:...

Why Man Utd are yet to Finalize Varane’s transfer deal

  Manchester United are yet to finalize Raphael Varane’s transfer deal because they are struggling to reach an agreement with Real Madrid, the UK Mirror reports.

Neymar’s best years are behind him

The former Parc des Princes favourite has suggested that the world's most expensive player is now past his prime Neymar's "best years are behind him" according to David Ginola, who says the Brazilian's new deal will be meaningless unless Paris Saint-Germain can also tie Kylian Mbappe down to fresh terms. Neymar put an end to speculation over his future at Parc des Princes by signing a new four-season contract last week, which includes the option of an extra year. Ginola was pleased to see the 29-year-old commit to a long-term stay but thinks it's far more important for PSG to sort out an extension for Mbappe, who he believes still has a lot more potential to unlock.

Canelo Alvarez Claims He Would Have Knocked Floyd Mayweather Out In His Prime

Canelo Alvarez has claimed Floyd Mayweather wouldn't have faced him if both were in their primes, saying he'd have knocked the undefeated retired boxer out. Right now there is no better, or more famous, boxer in the world than Canelo. He has very much taken over from Mayweather as the sport's big ticket fighter. The two men faced in 2013, where 'Money' handed the Mexican his first, and still only, loss in professional boxing, with Canelo just 23-years-old. There has long been discussion about the fact that the super middleweight world champion wasn't in his prime yet when he faced Mayweather, and how different the fight might have been if he was. Canelo, who faces Billy Joe Saunders next week, has now answered that question himself, claiming he would hand the American his f...

Theresa May To Make Statement After Brexit Cabinet Talks

British Prime Minister Theresa May said Tuesday she will seek another “short” extension of Brexit in order to pass the deal she agreed with the European Union. May came out of seven hours of crunch talks with her ministers and also offered to meet opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn for negotiation on a joint approach that could break the current impasse in parliament. “Leaving with a deal is the best solution,” May said from her Downing Street office in nationally-televised remarks. “We will need a further extension to Article 50, one that is as short as possible, and which ends when we pass a deal,” she said. Article 50 is the withdrawal notice May sent to Brussels in March 2017. EU leaders have agreed to extend the original March 29 Brexit deadline until April 12...

Pound Under Pressure Ahead Of Brexit Summit

The pound fell further ahead of a key Brexit summit in Brussels on Thursday, while equities investors tried to come to grips with an unexpectedly dovish message from the US Federal Reserve. Sterling, seen as a barometer for Britain’s long-running Brexit saga, remained on the backfoot over fears that the country could crash out of the EU without a deal continued to fester. British Prime Minister Theresa May was back in Brussels on a last-gasp mission to beg EU leaders for more time to deliver a Brexit deal that was twice rejected by her own parliament. May has declared that she is “determined” to deliver Brexit, after formally requesting a three-month delay on Wednesday. However, investor fears persist that the 27 other EU leaders could refuse the request, potentially sending Br...

Gonzalo Higuain told not to “Show His Face in Milan again” by Italy’s Deputy PM

Italy’s deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini has labelled Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain a “mercenary” and says the Argentine won’t be welcome back in Milan. The outspoken right-wing politician made his comments in the wake of the 31-year-old’s move to Stamford Bridge, which came just half a season after his arrival at San Siro on loan from Juventus. Salvini had already spoken of his happiness at seeing the back of the Argentina international, who scored six Serie A goals in 15 games for the Rossoneri this season, and hit out again on Monday. “I hope Higuain doesn’t show his face in Milan again,” Salvini said to Corriere della Sera. “He behaved disgracefully and I don’t like mercenaries, but we’ve become very competitive without him.” Higuain made his Ch...

Theresa May Survives Confidence Vote, to Remain UK Prime Minister

Theresa May survived the confidence vote spearheaded by 8 Conservative rebel MPs, and will now be immune from leadership challenge for a year. Theresa May who vowed to deliver the Brexit “people voted for” but said she had listened to the concerns of MPs who voted against her, secured 63% of the total vote. Theresa May who survived the confidence vote, won with a majority of 83, with 63% of Conservative MPs backing her and 37% voting against her. However while supporters urged the party to move on, critics said losing the support of a third of MPs was “devastating”. The secret ballot was triggered by 48 of her MPs angry at her Brexit policy, which they say betrays the 2016 referendum result. In a defiant statement earlier outside her Downing Street office, the prime minister s...

Netanyahu Asks ICRC To Help Return Soldiers Remains From Gaza

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Wednesday for the International Committee of the Red Cross to help return civilians and the bodies of soldiers held in Gaza as he met the organisation’s head. “We are concerned about this unbelievable cruelty,” Netanyahu said after talks with ICRC president Peter Maurer, who is on a three-day visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories. Two Israeli soldiers, Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, are believed to have been killed in the 2014 war in the Gaza Strip and their remains held by the Islamic movement Hamas which runs the Palestinian territory. Three Israeli civilians, all said to be mentally unstable, are also believed to have entered Gaza and to be held by Hamas. The ICRC can help in “retrieving the bodies of our fallen soldie...

23 Mar, 2011 – Portuguese Prime Minister Resigns

23rd March, 2011 : The Prime Minister of Portugal, Jose Socrates, resigned after his austerity budget failed to pass in parliament. Failure to pass the budget meant that Portugal would likely join the ranks of Greece and Ireland in the European Union, and would need help from a bailout package similar to the ones that those two countries received in 2010. The budget aimed at tackling the harsh economic situation in the country included tax rises and spending cuts, however the five opposition parties all voted against it.
