Tyson Fury thinks contemporaries are scared of him



Tyson Fury And Contemporaries

Tyson Fury recently expressed his frustration at the lack of fights he has this year in the heavyweight category of boxing. While discussing his next match with former MMA superstar Francis Ngannou, he made this revelation.

“It has taken a guy from MMA to come and challenge me, step up to the plate and give me a challenge when no other actual so-called boxer will step up to it,” Fury claimed.

He asserted that every heavyweight challenger, including Olexandr Usyk, the co-holder of the heavyweight championship, turned down the opportunity to face him in the ring.

Here is the statement in full:

Facts are facts: [Anthony] Joshua bottled it, Usyk bottled it and Andy Ruiz asked for $20m, so he bottled it too. And here’s another one – [Deontay] Wilder was asked to fight Ruiz in a final eliminator in February [for Fury’s WBC title]. Both said no so they bottled it too!

‘I took a real man on who was willing to step up to the challenge,. If they’ve got something to say about it, I’m standing here. It has taken a guy from MMA to come and challenge me, step up to the plate and give me a challenge when no other actual so-called boxer will step up to it. Full credit to Ngannou.’

The boxing legend had previously praised Francis Ngannou, who appeared to be highly fired up for the bout. The other occasion, during the required press conference that must precede the contest, Ngannou stated that Tyson Fury was a “great boxer” rather than a “great fighter.”

He made the point that Tyson Fury could not defeat him in the octagon by doing this. The boxing hero firmly retorted that he will defeat Ngannou in the octagon as well.

Due to the likelihood that he could lose in the ring next month, Fury’s claim has yet to be proven.

Ngannou is a skilled puncher who, if given the opportunity to land a clean blow, might easily knock Tyson Fury out.

That one match has the potential to bring in more money for the former MMA superstar than his whole career combined.

Ngannou’s challenge, in Fury’s opinion, is an attempt by the latter to push himself.

‘This is not about Usyk or any other boxers. It’s about me and him doing combat and there is no more to it. All these boxers, they had their chances over the last nine months to do a deal with me, they didn’t so we’ve moved on and took a real man who is willing to challenge himself.’

As a result of Usyk’s contentious victory against Dubois in their most recent bout, Fury believes Usyk is unfit to challenge him.

Fury disputes that Usyk’s waistband was struck with a low blow since the shorts were pulled up higher than was necessary.

He even used some really repulsive language to describe why he would not fight Usyk.

Because he’s a s**t house. And he got beat by Daniel Dubois anyway. It’s irrelevant now. 100% he got knocked out by a body shot. He quit there. That’s a quitter for you. He’s a welterweight, Shawn Porter, but he did beat him at welterweight yeh, 75 kilos. I’ve got no interest in him at all. First stop Francis Ngannou, second stop bank.

The management of Daniel Dubois has already begun the procedure to secure a rematch, but Tyson admits he has lost a lot of respect for the other champion. The heavyweight titles held by Usyk by the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO.

Supposed to be this big god-fearing man,’ Fury voiced his disappointment. ‘Rolling up and down with a low blow and it hit him on the beltline. Come on, What do I know? I’m a world heavyweight champion, been in boxing for 15 years as a pro. I’ve won up to 22 belts. What do I know? That wasn’t a low blow. I know that.’

Lionel Messi wins his eighth Ballon d’Or title



Lionel Messi wins his eighth Ballon d’Or title

Argentine seven-times Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi is chosen as the winner of this year’s title edition, following his accomplishment at the 2022 World Cup.

The World Cup is the only star missing from the lineal-GOAT’s breast that has been raising eyebrows for a long time. There are those who think he should not have won this year’s award, though, and one of them was Jason Cundy.

Cundy was not unaware of why the player could turn up as the favourite, and mentioned it in his statement.

‘I have said it many time.’ Jason Cundy had predicted. ‘I think if Haaland doesn’t win it [the Ballon d’Or], it’s a disgrace. I think it’s a disgrace, Messi will win it because he won the World Cup.’

Despite all the glory and noise associated with the Ballon d’Or award, Lionel Messi once said he had no big view of it but rather preferred awards gotten at group level. By ‘group level’, he meant his club and country.

‘The Ballon d’Or is very important due to the recognition at the individual level, but I never gave it importance,’ announced Messi.

‘The most important thing for me was always the awards at the group level. I was lucky to have achieved everything in my career and after the World Cup, I’m thinking about that award much less, my biggest award was that and I’m disguising my moment. If it arrives, good, and if not, nothing happens. I was lucky to achieve all my goals in my career and now I have new goals with this club.’

Lionel Messi’s form at Inter Miami has been the subject of bad news for weeks now, including his inability to help his struggling club remain in the MLS playoffs. After the injury he sustained while working for his country in the World Cup qualifiers, he has only been able to carry himself instead of his club.

His so-called rival Cristiano Ronaldo has been at his best since, though he is older than Lionel Messi by two years. Some are convinced that the time has come for the GOAT to retire and tend his recurrent muscle problem, but Argentina’s first team’s coach, Scaloni, would not hear of it. In reaction to the question of whether Argentina’s best should be retired, the seemingly-angered coach replied:

‘Let’s keep in mind that he is still here. What a way to think about ‘when he is gone.’ The truth is that he is still active, let’s leave him alone, are we already retiring him? We commit hara-kiri, we are all crazy.’

The man believes that the veteran horse is alright.

Leo is fine,’ argued Scaloni. ‘He has been adding minutes of training. We will make the decision. It’s a matter of minutes, of how much he can play. If he’s well, you know what I think, he will play.

‘We always try to play those that are at 100 per cent or close to 100 per cent. It is very difficult for everyone to be at their best in these games so there may be a variation with respect to the game against Paraguay.’

It seems very clear that Cristiano Ronaldo fell behind in becoming the most decorated footballer of his era.

Paul Pogba guilty of doping, and could be banned for 4 years



Paul Pogba guilty of doping

In the past, alarming reports stated that the possibility test revealed that Paul Pogba’s urine had traces of the synthetic enhancer testosterone.

A definitive judgment on the matter was postponed until the results of a second sample, which later revealed that he had in fact doped.

Rafaela Pimienta, Paul Pogba’s representative, said after the initial results were announced, “We are waiting for the counter-analysis, and until then, we can’t say anything.” Paul Pogba never sought to break the rules, that much is evident.

Paul Pogba’s claimed wildness, his recent injuries, and the fact that the chemical identified in his system could only have arrived there via drug peddlers all contributed to the situation’s notoriety.

The incident might result in the arrest of those involved in the distribution of testosterone, which was not a component of any drug marketed legally over the counter in Italy.

According to sources, it is simple to purchase the chemical in Italy via the dark web, but it is dangerous to be found in possession of it or its products.

They continued by mentioning that Juventus’ top brass might attempt to shield the player, which they noted would be a waste of time.

Since the world is watching these high-profile cases, it would be difficult to spare the guilty of the majority of the punishment involved.

If someone is found guilty, like Paul Pogba, the National Anti-Doping Tribunal in Italy will decide what should happen to them after that.

Whatever they decide, Juventus’ outstanding star Pogba is expected to miss additional games due to ongoing injury issues that have caused him to miss a lot of games.

The footballer has not stated whether the synthetic enhancer served as a clutch to support his hurting body on the field.

Many people do not endorse Paul Pogba due to his rising occurrence of injury-related disqualifications.

Juventus might be content to terminate the player’s contract at this time and leave his future in the anti-doping tribunal’s hands.
