Fury slams Joshua, predicts third-round KO when pair finally meet

first_img British boxing fans are desperate to see the two champs go head-to-head in the ring after Fury snatched Deontay Wilder’s WBC belt. The Gypsy King needs to fight Wilder for the third time to fill contractual obligations while AJ’s next opponent will be Bulgarian brute Kubrat Pulev. Only then, if both win their fights, can the pair finally put the trash-talking to bed to decide who will be crowned undisputed heavyweight champion. But Fury, 31, insists he has been pushing Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn for the “last five years” to organise the bout. He told Sky Sports: “Eddie Hearn talks a lot of hot air as usual. “I’ve been offering to fight Joshua for quite a while. I’ve been trying to make that fight happen for the last five years. And it’s not happened at all. First time I connect on him, his legs will do a dance. “Eddie’s obviously Joshua’s promoter, so he’ll have to be speaking to my team to make the fight happen, give the fans what they want and stop running away from the biggest fight since Lennox [Lewis] fought Frank Bruno. “Have the guts to step up to the plate and get flattened, son!” Fury also launched his own personal attack on the Watford-born fighter and insisted AJ’s style plays right into his hands. He added: “AJ’s style is tailor-made for mine. “He’s an upright fighter walking forward with a classic defence. Strong and powerful. read also:Joshua,Fury have a ’50-50′ chance of fighting, says Hearn “He’s got no footwork, hardly any resilience. And he’s a bit gutless when it comes down to getting clipped. “I think I’d knock him out in round two, three rounds. First time I connect on him, his legs will do a dance and I’ll just jump on him like the little fat kid did in America that time.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Tyson Fury has vowed to destroy “gutless” Anthony Joshua inside three rounds after waiting five years for the highly-anticipated showdown.

2 local ports called vital to millions

first_img“I think it shows definitively that we are America’s ports,” said Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn, whose district includes San Pedro. “When we say we want our fair share of federal security and infrastructure and environmental money coming to this port, it’s because what happens here affects every other region of the country.” [email protected] (562) 499-1466 It’s been called an economic engine, a global trade gateway and an international job machine, but just how financially important is the sprawling seaport of Long Beach-Los Angeles? According to a new report, it is so vital that 3.3million people from Maine to California depend on local docks for their livelihood, from auto manufacturers in Detroit to farmers in Kansas. If the ports shut down for a year, businesses in Illinois, for example, would lose a trade gateway supplying $11billion worth of imports to customers, the report shows. Even more, local, state and federal tax collectors rely on cargo arriving and leaving here for $28billion in annual revenue, including assessments exceeding $6billion in California alone. “This study proves what we’ve been claiming and what most people already know,” said John Doherty, chief executive officer at the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority, which helped fund the study along with both ports. “These ports support the national economy.” The Trade Impact Study, released today, examines where imports moving through the ports are destined, where exports leaving here originate, and combined incomes tied to port trade and the location of retailers and wholesalers benefiting from local waterways, roadways and rail lines. In Ohio, for example, annual wages topping $800million are tied to containerized exports shipped out of the twin ports. Businesses in Texas, meanwhile, moved about $29billion worth of goods through Los Angeles-Long Beach in 2005, despite Houston and the proximity of nearby New Orleans – two key regional international seaports. Even New York state, home to the East Coast’s largest seaport, depends on the Western ports for an estimated $7billion in trade. To localize the report, authors highlighted the ports’ economic impact into all 435 U.S. Congressional districts. last_img read more
