Joshua: I’m ready to fight Fury behind closed doors

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 Anthony Joshua has insisted that he is ready to take an all-British blockbuster against Tyson Fury behind closed doors, even if it costs them nearly £6.5 million in lost gate revenue.Fury, the WBC titlist, and IBF, WBO and WBA king Joshua are on course for a mega fight to crown the undisputed heavyweight champion.The clash would sell out any stadium on these shores and would likely be the richest fight in UK boxing history.But with coronavirus curtailing the boxing calendar for the foreseeable future, AJ says he would take the hit of fighting without fans out of fear the chance may not come again.“If (promoter) Eddie Hearn said he managed to secure the Tyson Fury fight, but it is behind closed doors, I would take it,” Joshua told DAZN.“If I don’t take it now then I don’t think Tyson Fury will be around by the time this all comes around again, when big hall shows are available. I have to take the opportunity while it’s there.“One hundred per cent I would fight for $8 million (£6.4m) less… I would take the opportunity to fight at the drop of a hat.”Though AJ admitted fighting without a crowd could severely impact his performance, he insisted: “A win is a win, and it goes down in history.”As it stands, a fight between Joshua and Fury looks set to take place next year at the earliest.Joshua is slated to face IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev this summer, while Fury is set for a third fight with Deontay Wilder.Nevertheless, Joshua said: “Wilder, it would be good if he stepped aside, Pulev, it would be good if he stepped aside and we got this fight on as it is one that the world is screaming for.“It is such a shame that I am quarantine right now as it has put a halt to greatness. But this is part of history and I am working towards beating Tyson Fury.”Both Joshua and Fury have bounced back to regain their place atop heavyweight boxing. Fury battled drugs, depression and drink before beating Wilder, while Joshua last year avenged a shocking upset at the hands of Andy Ruiz Jnr.Joshua addedL “I am looking at Tyson Fury like I am going to walk through him as well. I had my issue last year, I got through it and I want to correct it. People don’t know what that does for a fighter mentally when he loses in front of the world and what it takes to come back.“We will see what the future holds. When Wilder or Fury are ready I will not turn down that offer at all. Another six years from now, when I’m where Tyson Fury is in terms of time (as a professional), I’ll be unstoppable.”AJ and Fury are currently stuck at home during the ongoing lockdown. Fury has been leading workouts on Instagram, while Joshua has been keeping fit through running, cycling and shadow boxing.“I have no gym or swimming pool in my house,” he said. “I am actually at my family home with my Mum, my niece, my son and my cousin, we are all quarantining together so it’s nice.”Tags: Anthony JoshuaTyson Furylast_img read more

Indian eves beat Nepal clinch 5th SAFF title

first_imgBiratnagar: India continued its dominance at the SAFF Women’s Championship with the team lifting its fifth straight title on Friday in Biratnagar, Nepal with a 3-1 win over the hosts in the final. The win extends India’s unbeaten run in the tournament’s history to 23 games as goals from Dalima Chhibber, Grace Dangmei and substitute Anju Tamang saw India lift the trophy in front of a partisan crowd at the Sahid Rangashala Stadium. The pace of the match was intense from the word go, with both sides pressing hard from the first whistle. Grace Dangmei fashioned a couple of early chances down the right wing for India while Nepal registered a couple of shots from a distance, with Manjali Kumar testing Indian custodian Aditi Chauhan in the 14th minute.

The winger’s effort was a powerful one but was saved by the opposition keeper. On the other end, Sabitra Bhandari posed a threat for India inside the penalty area but her curling effort was off target. In the semi-final against Bangladesh, it was Dalima who opened the scoring for India and this time around too, it was the right-back who gave India the advantage. In the 26th minute, she smashed the ball past the keeper from a free-kick from 30 yards with a powerful drive and put the defending champions into a 1-0 lead.

In the 34th minute though, Sabitra equalized for the hosts as she rose high above her marker and headed the ball into the back of the net. The break saw both sides locked at a goal apiece but it could have easily been either team with the lead. Grace failed to connect well with a cross from Sanju down the left in the 41st minute and Aditi made a brilliant double save to deny Sabitra in first half stoppage time. The second half began with India creating the majority of the opportunities, with Sanju and Ratanbala putting their respective efforts just over the bar. Nepal were under the cosh and India’s pressure paid off in the 63rd minute after Sanju put Grace through on goal with a delightful through ball. The winger swiftly broke through and showing great composure, she rounded the goalkeeper and slotted the ball home to restore India’s advantage. It proved to be the straw that broke the camel’s back as the away side continued to keep the Nepal side at bay and almost added another as Ratanbala’s shot was spilled by the keeper. Coach Maymol Rocky brought on Anju Tamang in place of Sandhiya midway through the second half at the top of the pitch and in the 78th minute, the move paid rich dividends as she slammed the ball on the volley for India’s third after a crafty first-time assist from Indumathi Kathiresan. Towards the end, Nepal threw everything they had at the Indian defence but they stood firm. Sabitra and Renuka Nagarkote threatened to halve the deficit but could not get past Aditi in goal as India romped to a fifth SAFF trophy in a row.last_img read more

Great to witness this cultural moment

first_imgSeoul: As someone who began the Avengers journey with Iron Man ten years ago, Robert Downey Jr says it is gratifying to see actors like Brie Larson, the newest addition to the team as Captain Marvel, shatter the glass ceiling. The actor said the emotional involvement of the audience with the franchise is the reward for the time and effort the team has put in these movies for the past decade. “I’m honestly looking at, seeing all of you, and I know some of you hold this cinematic universe close to your heart and it has this symbolism stuff and it has really come to that way for us too,” he said. “Now, I honestly just feel like I get to be a part of witnessing this cultural moment that’s coming up and I’m filled with a lot of gratitude. Just to be (here) next door to the centre stage, to the lady of the hour here (Larson), who’s broken through this double-pane glass window and kind of re-established what this genre is supposed to be, is just very gratifying.”last_img read more
