‘I’m tired of f*cking losing ‘ – Anthony Joshua says

Anthony Joshua has stated he is tired of losing, a month after he lost his heavyweight titles to Oleksandr Usyk. Joshua, 32, lost his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles to the Ukrainian southpaw in September at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, with the Briton comprehensively outclassed over 12 rounds. AJ has activated his rematch clause and is expected to face Usyk again in March next year, with pundits and fans doubtful that the British-Nigerian boxer can refine his style in such a short space of time to avenge his defeat in north London. Speaking to iFL TV, he said; I'm done with f***ing losing,' 'I'm done with trying to learn the sweet science. The referee might get thrown on the floor in the next fight because this is war. It's just straight war, I'm annoyed. I'm boiling up even ...

Chilwell goal and Mendy heroics earn Chelsea win at Brentford

Ben Chilwell's first-half strike sent Chelsea back to the top of the Premier League with a 1-0 win at Brentford, thanks in large part to Edouard Mendy's late heroics.

Norwich still winless as wasteful Sargent lets Brighton off

Josh Sargent wasted two great chances as Norwich's search for a first Premier League win of the season continued with a 0-0 draw at home to Brighton. Brighton should have taken the lead themselves during a first half in which Neal Maupay was harshly denied a penalty when both the referee and VAR overlooked clear contact from Tim Krul, before the goalkeeper pulled off an outstanding fingertip save to push Leandro Trossard's volley onto the bar. However, Sargent twice let the visitors off the hook either side of the interval. Robert Sanchez's failed attempt to sweep up presented him with an open goal 20 yards out but his shot was tame and Shane Duffy was able to get back to clear. Then, after the restart, a poor first touch from Sargent when through one-on-one allowed Dan Burn to rec...
