Ythere is less left for him November 28, date on which the combat between Mike Tyson y Roy Jones Jr., an exhibition fight that the second begins to regret having accepted.
It already sounded strange that both pgiles would carry out a fight, which on paper is ‘friendly’, without a protective helmet, because given his age all precautions could be little. The fight was scheduled for eight rounds, and that will not change, but what if it does is the duration of the same. They will be two and not three minutes, as in women’s boxing.
Roy Jones Jr has explained it and the idea seems even detrimental to his interests. “I think the World Boxing Council (WBC) came in and said they wanted to put some kind of title on the line or something, so they want to cut it down to two minute rounds.“, coment.
The former champion added: “He said something about the fight between Arce and Chvez, how fatigued they were after the fight, and They think it’s a safety measure, but what they don’t realize is that the longer you keep Mike cool, the more dangerous it is to me. “. “Things change every week,” he added, annoyed.
The point is that Jones Jr. is beginning to gauge the risks to face the youngest heavyweight champion of all time. It does not seem that these pgiles, who are training more than some professionals, are going to go out to the ring in a relaxed attitude. “When someone like Mike Tyson hits you, anything can happen to you. He’s not just an ordinary hitter, he’s one of those guys who can hurt you,” he explained.
RJ, he’s realistic and he’s starting to see this fight as something very serious: “So, you have to know what you’re getting into and you have to be ready for that because we’re talking about Mike. I really don’t give a damn, I fight for a living. I’m not turning away at all even though I know death is a possibility. Yes, that can happen to anyone, especially if I go there against someone as dangerous as Mike Tyson, “said the former world heavyweight and light heavyweight champion.
Of course, Roy Jones does well to fear his rival, knowing that Tyson was a natural heavyweight and he had to be done. The power that the Brooklyn one had, in part, managed to get it out despite his age.
UFCAccording to Dana White, “I have not seen anything like it”
Aunque Colby Covington took the spotlights on UFC Vegas 11, especially for its verbal attack on the movement ‘Black Lives Matters’ After his implacable triumph, the truth is that in the sporting arena there was a fighter who showed that he is one of the values on the rise.

He Swedish-born in Chechnya- aged 26 starred in the moment of the night when crossed a right right, straight to the jaw of his rival, which perhaps should have been more cautious since he was cornered and the attack was imminent, although it is true that Chimaev was very fast.
With this victory, the fighter is put with a record of 9-0-0 (6 KOs / 3 submissions) and already many call him “the new Khabib Nurmagomedov”.

I’ve been in this game my whole life and never saw anything like it. It is special, different. The boy wants to fight again. Who is next? How are we going to get a fight for him? It’s fun and I like it. When you are a fan of MMA, it is a fighter that you like to watch. I’ll try to get him a match on ‘Fight Island’. I never saw anything like this in my life “said the UFC president.
According to Chimaev’s manager, the well-known Ali Abdelaziz, his fighter would leave “McGregor in a wheelchair” if they faced each other. There is already another rooster in the pen.

“I am happy now because I have learned the true aspirations of humanity thanks to you, extraordinary people. Aspirations that are much greater than the international wrestling championships”, Navid Afkari was sincere from the prison where he was imprisoned since he was arrested in 2018.
In an audio recording, secretly taken from the jail where he was detained, the fighter acknowledged having been tortured and forced to confess to a crime that he had not committed.

However, on September 13, 2019, in a handwritten letter, Navid detailed the torture he claimed to have experienced in two detention centers in Shiraz. It included hitting his legs, hands, and abdomen with a baton or stick, pouring alcohol into his nose, and covering his head with a plastic bag to the point of suffocation.
US OPEN 2020The Bulgarian enters the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam after three years without competing to be a mother.
Dedication, effort, passion and above all sacrifice. Those are the keys and virtues that characterize Serena Williams and Tsvetana Pironkova. Both tennis players have managed to qualify for the fifth round of the US Open and not precisely by fortune, but by how they have left their skin on the blue court of the Flushing Meadows facilities.
Serena Williams comes to this tournament with a clear objective on the table: to raise his individual title number 24 in Grand Slam and thus reach the historic Margaret Court. The Australian holds the record for the highest number of Grand Slam titles (24)That is why this US Open is very special for the American. The former number one of the WTA ranking already reached the record of Margaret by reaching the final at Wimbledon and US Open, however, Bianca Andreescu and Simona Halep they destroyed the dreams of the American woman.
On the other hand, one of the clear surprises of the Grand Slam has been the appearance on the scene of Pironkova. The Bulgaria left the competition in 2017 – their last match was in the second round of Wimbledon- to be a mother. Three years later, the exranked reappears causing a furor during her time at the tournament. Four tennis players –Samsonova, Muguruza, Vekic y Cornet– have suffered the scourge of the Bulgarian, highlighting how two of them belong to the top 25 one of the best in the world. In addition, the former number 31 of the ranking “wiped off the map” to her opponents giving up only one set (2-0, 2-0, 0-2 and 1-2).
The greatest effort of Pironkova It has not only been to be able to maintain a top level to compete, the hardest thing is the separation with his son, whom he has not seen for almost two weeks. Given this, the tennis player could not help but get excited when remembering that eI know the first time that you are so far away from your child.
It’s the first time she’s been away from her son for so long … and she couldn’t help but get excited by the question
After three seasons without competing, Bulgaria is back through the big door, achieving its best classification in the Open since it was eliminated in the second round in 2012 against Serbia Ana Ivanovic.
Thus, this Wednesday tennis will enjoy a quality match, between two experienced players (38 and 32 years respectively) that as in the rest of the competition, they will continue giving 100% in each hit and outcome, to in turn dedicate the pass to themselves and their children. Impossible best reason.

Some Pyrenees if you want something atypical but, according to what was witnessed in yesterday’s stage, effective, because you could see a fight and a show that in some previous stages has been somewhat missed. Today the platoon faces a tour of 153 kilmetros between Pau y Laruns.
From the historical Pau, where so many feats of the Tour have begun or ended, the squad will begin to stretch their legs at the Artiguelove (fourth, 2.3 km at 4.5%). Around kilometer 50 you will find the Col de L’Hourcere. 11.1 kilometers at 8.8% and some sections above 10%.

“Today the battle has been decided in our favor, but there is much war left. We have to stay united, concentrated, all together. I think that with what we have seen today and the line we are following, we can do better than we expected and many people expected, but we have to go day by day, step by step, “says the Madrid native.
He also adds that the rhythm that Bora has imposed from the beginning “has been very good for them because it has eliminated a lot of more rolling people”.
“It has been a day with a lot of stress for my colleagues and for me, solving faults, getting in and out of the car for drums … and in the end what mattered was only to position the three leaders well. The wind has hit more favorable than we thought but the cut has been made where we anticipate, at the exit of a town 40 kilometers from the finish line. There were two roundabouts and, as the peloton stretched, the cut was made by inertia. From there, it was a fight between the front and rear group, there has been no more “, he describes what happened on the stage.
Finally, the cyclist encourages the Movistar to continue “going better every day, every day more united, happy, motivated.”

Tour de Francia 2020The most atypical French round for the Coronavirus pandemic begins today
CThe 2020 Tour de France begins. The most convulsed Tour remembered due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A career, with a wide range of favorites, but with the uncertainty of how the riders will perform on the road.
A priori, the Jumbo Visma block is made to command in this edition. An edition in which he returns, among others, Tom Dumoulin, after missing the race last year due to injury at the Giro. Despite the last minute casualties of some cyclists, the race presents a large number of candidates for the final victory. Young and veteran riders will fight for the same goal, to win the Tour de France.
The complexity of this season has made many stars focus your season on this race and that the list of applicants is one of the most open in history.
The Colombian arrives in Nice as the last winner of the Tour. A cyclist called to be the protagonist in the coming seasons. Without the presence of Froome and Thomas, he must take the reins of his team from the beginning. A tour with so much mountain comes in handy to show his climbing skills. In addition, and despite the fact that he has been progressing in the time trial, the fact that the time is uphill benefits him. It arrives after winning the Occitania Route and leaving the Dauphin as a precaution.
The great French hope for this Tour de France. Last year, after being the strongest rider in the Pyrenees, winning at the Tourmalet, he had to say goodbye on stage 19 because of an injury that occurred days before. This year he returns to the race with the aim of winning it. The one who was podium in the 2014 edition, seeks to demonstrate what a great climber he is, in a route that is designed for people like him. During the season he finished in the top 10 in the Tour of the Maritime Alps, the Tour de la Provence, the Pars-Nice and the Dauphin Libr.
After leaving Movistar and signing for Arkea, the Colombian seemed to have returned to his best years. After winning the general classification of the Tour de Provence and the Tour of the Maritime Alps, in which he won a stage in each of them, he was awarded the seventh and last stage of the Paris-Nice. The pandemic slows its progression, but if Nairo shows the same form he had during the first weeks of competition, he will be a candidate for everything. In the past I have already shown, especially in 2013 and 2015, that you can have a Tour on your legs.
Last year’s Vuelta winner arrives in Nice as one of the leaders of the powerful Jumbo Visma team. Unlike other favorites, he is not such a climber and it will be necessary to see how the mountain passes. If he knows how to regulate well and not lose much time, he will have his chance in the twentieth stage, with the Belle Fille Planche chrono, in a stage that is perfect for him. Following the pandemic hiatus, he has been Slovenian national long-distance road champion and leader of the Dauphin before leaving as a precaution. Many experts place him as the top favorite to victory.
The great Spanish trick arrives at the start of the Tour willing to show that it is a firm candidate for everything. The Alavs already knows what it means to stay close to the podium and this year he will seek to take another step, if the bad luck that has accompanied him during several great laps respects him. With a team that will be supporting him at all times, the Murgia team will try to assert its quality in a route that suits him perfectly. He arrives after having been second in Burgos and being until the last stage with the best in Dauphin.
The young Slovenian already showed what he is capable of in the 2019 Vuelta a Espaa. In his debut in a great lap he ended up getting three mountain stages and a third place in the general classification. Although he affirms that there are more favorite riders than him on this Tour, he feels prepared to lead his team and, if he has the chance, win this race. The route suits him well, as he is a runner who defends himself on all terrains. This season he has won the Vuelta a la Comunidad Valenciana, with two stages, a stage of the UAE Tour and the Slovenian time trial championship.
After spending quite a bit of time in dry dock after the fall of the 2019 Giro, Tom Dumoulin arrives in Nice as one of the leaders of the powerful Jumbo Visma. He already won a Giro d’Italia, he was second in another and in 2018 he was runner-up in the Tour, showing that he can win this race. Like Roglic, he benefits from the time of the Planche de Belle Fille, so if he comes with options in the general, he will be a man to take into account. It will be necessary to see how the two leaders of the Jumbo manage together.
The German cyclist, who pleasantly surprised locals and strangers with his fourth place in the last edition of the Tour de France, comes to this race with the aim of improving what he achieved last year. It does not have the name of other favorites, but it is a runner to be reckoned with. The one from Bora is evolving a lot and has positioned himself as a cyclist who defends well on all terrains. This year he has managed to win in the Mallorca Challenge, specifically in the Serra de Tramuntana Trophy. It comes after leaving the Dauphin because of a fall.
The Colombian debut in the French race. A specialist in Grand Tours, as evidenced by having qualified five times in the top ten of the Giro y Vuelta. An attacking cyclist for whom the route is very good, but we will have to see what he is capable of. He arrives after having run the Dauphin, where he has finished in fifth position. In the absence of Fuglsang, he will be the sole leader of Astana.
The winner of last year’s Giro has been included by surprise to run his first Tour de France. Together with Bernal, they will be in charge of fighting for the final victory for Ineos. As a great climber he is another cyclist who is good for the route. He arrives after winning a stage in Poland, before abandoning because of one fall. Same outcome that he had in his last race, the Giro de Emilia.
