The 31-year-old defeated Deontay Wilder 11 days ago to become the WBC heavyweight champion of the world. A unification bout with Anthony Joshua is on the horizon for Fury – but not after he has dealt with Wilder once again later this year. The Bronze Bomber has confirmed that he will exercise his rematch clause, meaning that there will be a summer trilogy fight. After his third clash with Wilder, a blockbuster unification fight with Anthony Joshua will follow… but then that will be it for the Gypsy King. After his wife Paris called for him to call it a day on This Morning, Fury said: “I’ve got two more fights left, then we’re going to really think about what we do from there. “How long does a piece of string go on? I’m undefeated in 31 professional fights and this is my 12th year as a professional. “I’ve already been the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. When I beat Klitschko I had all the belts, so as far as I’m concerned Anthony Joshua just has my leftovers. “I never lost those belts, I had to take time out to deal with mental health issues, so they’re my belts. Until a man is defeated in a boxing ring, how can you pretend to be the champion?” He also revealed that this time, he is better equipped to deal with the fame and pressure that comes with being world champion. Then you win and it’s like, ‘Oh well, I’ve done that’ and I slide down the other side. “You elevate yourself in mind and body to go and box at his level and nothing means anything apart from the fight. “Then you win and it’s like, ‘Oh well, I’ve done that’ and I slide down the other side. “But I feel fine, I’ve learned over the years to maintain the mental health problems and to train on a daily basis and keep a routine. “It takes me about two weeks to get back to normal after a massive fight. Loading… “It is a rollercoaster of emotions, to be away from the kids and the school run and the screaming and shouting, it takes a lot to come back to that and get re-adjusted to that after three months away. The Brit then opened up on what he’d like to do post-retirement. I don’t think he could ever just leave boxing because it’s such a big part of his life. He said: “I’m opening a local boxing club now where I am, I’m in the process of doing it. “Like I had a chance to walking into a boxing club as a kid and do what I did today, I want to give other kids that opportunity. “I just want to be positive and encourage kids to follow their dreams like I followed mine. “So many people said it was impossible to do, so I know what it’s like to be told you can’t do something. “I want to tell people everything is possible if you put your mind to it.” Paris, who joined him on the sofa, also added on her husband’s future: “I don’t think he could ever just leave boxing because it’s such a big part of his life. “If he did open a gym, did stay involved, I think that would be great. I think that’s a good thing to do. “We’ve got other business we’re involved in, but there’s no real pleasure. It’s not boxing, is it?” And on his trilogy bout with Wilder, Fury was in no doubt that he will again be triumphant: “I beat him the first time and I beat him the second time and I will surely beat him the third time,” he said.

FA outlaws primary school children from heading in training

first_img(REUTERS) – Heading the ball in training sessions has been outlawed for primary school children under the age of 12 in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland as part of the Football Association’s updated “heading guidance” for the game.The English, Northern Irish and Scottish Football Associations said in a statement here on Monday that they are also set to use a “graduated approach” to headers for 12 to 16-year-olds at grassroots level with immediate effect.The heading guidelines follow last year’s publication of Football’s Influence on Lifelong Health and Dementia Risk (FIELD) study undertaken by Glasgow University, which found former professionals were at more risk of dementia. The FA said the new guidelines will take effect immediately but it will not recommend an end to headers during youth matches.“This updated heading guidance is an evolution of our current guidelines and will help coaches and teachers to reduce and remove repetitive and unnecessary heading from youth football,” FA chief executive officer Mark Bullingham said. “Our research has shown that heading is rare in youth football matches, so this guidance is a responsible development to our grassroots coaching without impacting the enjoyment that children of all ages take from playing the game.” The FIELD study did not state that heading a ball was the reason behind the increased prevalence of degenerative neurocognitive disease among footballers but the FA said the decision was taken to mitigate any potential risks.The FA confirmed the updated heading guidance has been produced in line with UEFA’s medical committee, which is seeking to publish Europe-wide guidelines later this year.Dr Carol Routledge, director of research at Alzheimer’s Research UK, welcomed the new guidelines but said the sport’s governing bodies must go further to find any potential links between football and dementia. “The recent FIELD study highlighted an increased dementia risk for ex-professional footballers in Scotland,” she said.“While we don’t yet know the cause or causes of this increased risk, limiting unnecessary heading in children’s football is a practical step that minimises possible risks, ensuring that football remains as safe as possible in all forms.“We need to see more research in order to unpick any link between football and dementia risk but until we know more, making sure the nation’s best loved game is played as safely as possible is a sensible approach.”last_img read more

Austin Harrouff internet searches before attack will give you chills

first_imgMoments before 19-year-old Austin Harrouff attacked and killed a couple in Martin County along with stabbing a nearby neighbor, he was searching the web for explanations.Investigators found a number of questions Harrouff searched, from satan to murders to the pursuit of happiness.The internet searches included:“Must I sleep?”“I think I’m going crazy, am I?”“What am I?” “How to know if you’re going crazy”“can we really control more than we think,”“What is white magic”Reports show that he opened a WebMD article titled, “What ‘Am I Crazy’ Really Means.” and other articles titled “Why aren’t we happier” and “The pursuit of happiness.”He also searched for answers on “hearing things in my sleep” and “obsessive thoughts.”On Aug. 10, between the hours of 3 and 5 a.m., Harrouff searched “how to relax my mind” and “auditory hallucinations when falling asleep.” He followed up by searching “schizophrenia” and if it was OK to overthink things.Between Aug. 12 and Aug. 13, Harrouff searched for Satan, asked Google “what exactly is hell” as well as the biblical figures Adam and Eve. During the summer, Harrouff searched how to sell his soul to the devil. Harrouff searched the Thanksgiving Day Massacre in which Paul Michael Merhige shot and killed four family members and injured three others in 2009 in Jupiter. Merhige, who had a history of mental health issues, pleaded guilty in 2012 to the murders after the state said it would seek the death penalty if there was a trial. He is serving seven life sentences in prison.On the day of the fatal stabbings, Harrouff searched about centaurs, a mythical half-human, half-horse figure. “What’s the weakest thing about a centaur” and “what’s the biggest help to a centaur,” he asked Google. Harrouff’s sister told investigators her brother recently expressed he had “powers,” was immortal and was half-horse, like a centaur.Nellie King, one of Harrouff’s attorneys, gave a statement following the release of the documents and said her client suffered from a mental illness but did not say if he had been diagnosed with a specific disorder.On top of the strange internet search findings, investigators say Harrouff’s family stated that he had he had hypnotized himself and he believed he couldn’t sleep because of it so he was trying to figure out how to reverse it. Family members said he’d walk through their house saying he needed to guard them and that he felt an evil presence. His sister told investigators how she was uncomfortable, she siad “He made me uneasy because he was being a different person,” to the point where she was locking her bedroom door at night.Harrouff was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder.[photo] via palmbeachpost.com Subscribe to the Full Rigor Podcast and listen to new episodes every Monday.Also, be sure to follow @fullrigorpodcast on Instagram!

Lawyer: Hope Solo did not assault sister, nephew

first_imgIn this Oct. 20, 2013, file photo, United States goalkeeper Hope Solo pauses on the field during the second half of an international friendly women’s soccer match against Australia in San Antonio.(AP Photo/Darren Abate, File)SEATTLE (AP) — U.S. women’s soccer star goalkeeper Hope Solo was arrested at a suburban Seattle home on suspicion of assaulting her sister and 17-year-old nephew, but her attorney insisted that Solo herself was a victim in the altercation.“Hope is not guilty of any crime,” attorney Todd Maybrown said in an email to The Associated Press Saturday. “In fact, our investigation reveals that Hope was assaulted and injured during this unfortunate incident. We look forward to the opportunity to present the true facts in court and to having this matter behind Hope very soon.”Officers responded to her sister’s home just before 1 a.m. Saturday after receiving a 911 call that a woman at the Kirkland residence was hitting people and that she refused to stop or leave, the Kirkland Police Department said in a news release.They found Solo intoxicated and upset, saw injuries on her nephew and her sister, and arrested her after speaking with those present and determining that she was the primary aggressor, the release said.She was booked into jail for investigation of two counts of fourth-degree domestic violence assault, and she was expected to remain in custody until an appearance Monday at Kirkland Municipal Court.A telephone number listed for her was not accepting incoming calls Saturday, and the voice mail for a listing at the sister’s home was full.The sister was not identified by police, but in her memoir, Solo writes that she has a half sister named Terry.Solo, 32, has won two Olympic gold medals for the U.S. women’s national team. She also plays with the Seattle Reign of the National Women’s Soccer League.“We are aware of the situation with Hope and are now gathering information,” the Reign posted on the team’s Twitter feed.In 2012, she married former Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens. He was arrested just before their wedding for investigation of assault after a disturbance involving her, but he was not charged. Maybrown represented Stevens in that case.Solo said soon afterward that there never was an assault and that she and her new husband were happy.“It’s unfortunate what the media can do to judge before the facts are out there. It’s hard to see, but it’s a hard truth, and it’s part of life,” she said then. “I’m happy. I’m happily married. I would never stand for domestic violence. I’ve never been hit in my life.”In her last appearance for the U.S., Solo recorded her 71st career shutout, a 1-0 victory over France on June 14 in Tampa, Florida. She sat out the team’s game against France on Thursday night in Connecticut.___Follow Johnson at https://twitter.com/GeneAPseattlelast_img read more
