Joshua picks the winner Mike Tyson vs Muhammad Ali in their prime

first_imgAnthony Joshua gave a definitive answer when asked the age old boxing question – Who wins Mike Tyson vs Muhammad Ali? Current heavyweight king AJ picked Tyson to come out on top in the hypothetical clash of legendary champions. Anthony Joshua is the current unified heavyweight world champion Joshua said on a JD Sports Instagram Live: “It’s quite interesting because in the era of Muhammad Ali’s heavyweight reign, the heavyweights were ranked as the cruiserweights of the Mike Tyson era. “With Lennox Lewis, you know how they started getting bigger, hence why in the amateurs they then created a super-heavyweight division. Muhammad Ali was known as the ‘Greatest of all Times’ “The current heavyweight division in the amateurs is what we class as the cruiserweight division. “So Muhammad Ali wouldn’t have been a fully fledged heavyweight.Advertisement Loading… “So let’s say we bulked Muhammad Ali up and put size and strength to him, I truly believe Mike Tyson would’ve won. “The reason being when you watch the fight with Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali, you see a certain Tyson-esque to Frazier’s style. Mike Tyson was known as the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ Read Also: Hearn insists Anthony Joshua wants Fury fight this year “Tyson used to study that Joe Frazier. The moving, the hooks. He managed to put Ali down in the fight, it was a very tough fight for Ali. “And I just believe Mike Tyson was better schooled, times have evolved, Mike Tyson was more developed. More science, more information. “So I think that Mike Tyson would’ve won, in my humble opinion.”center_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more

Wenger reveals City concerns

first_img Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard will turn out for City in the coming season having signed on loan from New York City – a Major League Soccer franchise owned by the same powers as those in charge of the Barclays Premier League champions. After falling foul of UEFA’s Financial Fair-Play regulations, City have been restricted to a 21-man Champions League squad this year, with eight home-grown players required in their Premier League squad. Arsene Wenger is worried Manchester City’s policy of buying up clubs around the world could see them side-step financial fair-play regulations. Former Barcelona and Spain striker David Villa has also signed up to play for New York City next season – but has instead moved on loan to another club owned by the same group – Melbourne City of Australia’s A-League. Although his move has not been officially confirmed, City manager Manuel Pellegrini has announced that Lampard will now occupy one of those berths after the England midfielder sealed a shock return to the Premier League just months after leaving Chelsea, who had not offered the 36-year-old a new deal at Stamford Bridge. But Wenger, who has always been a staunch advocate of financial fair-play, believes the move could benefit City at the expense of Arsenal and their fellow title rivals. “It is a surprise,” he said when asked about Lampard’s loan move. “After the statements we hear it is a surprise but it looks like all of these ‘City’ clubs will feed the main club Man City. I heard they want to buy five clubs all over the world. “I don’t know the rules well enough but they brought a franchise for 100million US dollars (£59.4million) to play in the States next season. “At the moment the players they sign cannot play until next year so they will register them in the clubs where they put them and they can get out on loan. “Is it a way to get around the fair-play? I don’t know. We are happy to dedicate the money to just run our club. There is not a lot of surplus to run other clubs.” Wenger was talking following his side’s 1-0 Emirates Cup defeat to Monaco, a result which saw Valencia walk away with the pre-season trophy. Former Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho played in the game and admitted he would rather see Lampard still turning out for the Blues. “I’m a supporter of Chelsea, I like Chelsea and they are strong,” he said. “Of course I would prefer to see him in a Chelsea shirt rather than a Manchester City shirt but you have to respect his decision. “He’s a great friend of mine and a great person as well. I will wait and see how he does but like I said, I’d prefer to see him back in a Chelsea shirt rather than a Manchester City shirt.” Press Associationlast_img read more

It’s Official: Trump, RNC to Move Convention to Jacksonville

first_imgThe Republican National Committee officially announced Thursday that President Trump’s renomination speech and other convention festivities will move to Jacksonville, Fla. from Charlotte, N.C., after Charlotte refused to allow a large-scale event amid the coronavirus pandemic.Thursday’s announcement ends the search for a last-minute convention site, after the commander-in-chief tweeted on Memorial Day that he wanted to move the convention to a city that would give him the opportunity to speak in a fully filled arena. In addition, the RNC indicated it did not want to require masks for Trump’s speech.Some events will remain in Charlotte, due to signed contracts requiring some activities to be held there. The RNC voted on Wednesday night to reduce the official business of the convention.The GOP will now have about 70 days to plan a series of events that typically take two years to develop.“We are thrilled to celebrate this momentous occasion in the great city of Jacksonville,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “Not only does Florida hold a special place in President Trump’s heart as his home state, but it is crucial in the path for victory in 2020. We look forward to bringing this great celebration and economic boon to the Sunshine State in just a few short months.”Local and state leaders in Florida applauded the decision. Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry, the former Florida Republican chairman, called it a “huge win” for the city.Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican and a Trump ally, said in the RNC statement Thursday that Jacksonville will “showcase Florida’s energy, facilities, entrepreneurship and commitment to bring together the delegates of the Republican Party at a historic time in our nation’s history.”According to a state filing, the Host Committee in Jacksonville will be led by Visit Jacksonville President Michael Corrigan, Rep. Michael Waltz (R-Fla.) and Daniel Davis, the president and CEO of the JAX Chamber.Trump is set to give his speech on Aug. 27 at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena, a venue in downtown Jacksonville that can accommodate roughly 15,000 people. (It is smaller than the 20,000-person capacity Spectrum Center in Charlotte where Trump was supposed to deliver the speech.)RNC and North Carolina officials had worked for months to have the convention in Charlotte. That ended when Trump posted a message on social media saying that he would move the event if he was unable to secure a commitment to hold a large scale gathering there.last_img read more
