I Lied About Earning £6.5m Against Nasukawa – Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather has admitted he earned more than the previously reported £6.5million from his win over Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018. The exhibition fight was over before the end of Round 1, as the unbeaten professional boxer knocked down the then 20-year-old Nasukawa three times, before his team threw in the towel. Mayweather is due to face YouTuber Logan Paul later this year, despite his obvious lack of experience. In a chat with Rob Moore, the 44-year-old gave some insight into the purse. He said: “When I did an exhibition in Tokyo, Japan. I think 40,000 people showed up for three rounds. “You know, I told the people that I made $9 million and I admitted. “But I think actually I made more money than that. I just tell people what I wanted to tell them...

Benin vs Nigeria: Why it will be Difficult for Super Eagles to Win – Rohr

  Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said the Republic of Benin will be hard to beat on their own turf. Nigeria take on the Squirrels at Porto-Novo’s Stade Charles de Gaulle on Saturday. Michel Dussuyer’s men are currently on a five-game unbeaten run. Benin have also not lost at home for eight years, as the last time they were beaten was against Algeria in 2013. “Benin have not lost a match for eight years at home. The last time they lost was in 2013. So you can imagine we want to be the first team to win there in eight years. “It will not be easy, they have a very good defence. They were quarter-finalists in the last AFCON tournament. They eliminated Morocco,” Rohr told reporters.

‘You’ll be Embarrassed’ – Ferdinand Blasts Rudiger after Chelsea’s 2 -0 Win Over Atletico

  Former Manchester United defender and football pundit, Rio Ferdinand has told Chelsea defender, Antonio Rudiger, that he will be ’embarrassed’ for his theatrics that played a role in getting Atletico Madrid defender Stefan Savic sent off in Chelsea’s 2-0 Champions League win at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. The German defender had thrown himself to the turf after getting an elbow into the chest from Savic, leading to the Atletico Madrid defender being promptly shown a red card. The La Liga leaders were already 1-0 down at this stage after Hakim Ziyech had put Chelsea ahead in the first half. Emerson Palmieri made it 2-0 and 3-0 on aggregate for Blues with his late effort.

I am thinking to do a good first game and a good second game. “When you are thinking about what you are going to win, you forget what you have to do – analyse the opponent, our shape, the...
