Tyson Fury: I'll beat Joshua with one arm tied behind my back

Tyson Fury: I'll beat Joshua with one arm tied behind my back

The 27-year-old Joshua's defeat of Klitschko, and the belief that still exists in some quarters that Fury remains the world's finest heavyweight, potentially makes a fight between the two rivals the biggest in British boxing.

Tyson was in Dubai on Thursday to announce plans for the Mike Tyson Academy, a franchise of fitness and boxing centres set to open around the world, including in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. I believe in clean boxing, I believe most of the fighters wouldn't ever something on objective to hurt an opponent, take advantage.

Sorry Conor McGregor and Jon Jones, but IBF-WBA world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua may take the cake in the punching power arcade game.

Should Joshua opt not to fight Pulev next, he faces being stripped of the belt just as Tyson Fury was in 2015.

Klitschko, who held at least one version of the title for 15 years from 2000, took mandatory eight counts both times but was then backed into a corner and forced the referee to step in to protect him because he was unable to defend himself. Klitschko was like, 'did he get up?'. I saw him at Bethnal Green before the Olympics and he was a nobody back then - people were walking past him. When you go into the trenches that's when you find out who you really are.

"I could see him fighting in the Bird's Nest Stadium (Beijing) - and Africa".

"I think certain athletes in any sport get a pass to go out the way they feel". The way he throws them overhand punches it reminds me of him but he's such a specimen. He's an ordinary guy who has achieved great things.

It was actually nice because I got a 10-second break. Who knows, the victor of this bout may face World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder next.

It didn't help that everything was festooned with the letters BLAB, which I believe stands for Black Label, something to do with his sponsor, although he was probably just relieved they had abandoned plans for a new fuchsia line. I'm a promoter and I want the biggest fights, and that fight is just gold dust.

Joshua defended his heavyweight titles and his undefeated record in a bout that lived up to its billing as the best matchup after a long drought in the heavyweight division. WBC and WBO World Champions - Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker - have also expressed interest in the fight. Rumours of a Joshua fight in the United States being imminent, would suggest the Wilder fight is the more likely of the two.

Chicago Bears make another trade, draft TE Shaheen
They just went and signed Mike Glennon , so this seems to be a move where Trubisky would to grow and learn for a couple of years. In a draft considered deep in defensive talent, seven of the first 10 players taken were on the offensive side.

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) vs. Galaxy J3 (2016) - What to Pick Nowadays?
Given the age and size of S5 and S6 user-base, the upgrade potential for the S8 is significant if Samsung can retain customers. Most of the features appear to be very similar as well, so most of you should definitely be quite pleased with the update.
