Tyson slams Andy Ruiz over weight loss

first_imgRelatedPostsNo Content Available Mike Tyson says Andy Ruiz Jr does not need to lose weight to fight Anthony Joshua as “it can affect power”.The pair will face off in Saudi Arabia this December.AJ was left stunned by the man who replaced Jarrell Miller for the fight in New York.It saw the Brit lose his IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO heavyweight title.And the 30-year-old has made some drastic changes, such as cutting his weight .The Mexican, who has only lost one fight in 34, has also been dropping mass in preparation for the rematch.But Tyson, who remains the youngest fighter to win a heavyweight title at 20, has suggested this is not a good idea for Ruiz.Speaking to Parimatch, the 53-year-old said: “There have been rumours he has lost weight.“I don’t like that.“I believe losing the weight can affect power sometimes.“If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.“He did well at that weight, so he should stay at that weight.And the former heavyweight champion believed the Mexican’s power was a big asset.Tyson added: “In the first fight, Ruiz put the pressure on him so fast that he didn’t know what to anticipate.“And there were some hard punches.”This footage was shared on Iron Mike’s official Twitter account earlier today, where it has been viewed nearly 30,000 times.It was soon shared on Instagram, where fans supported the 53-year-old’s theory.“I agree with Mike here,” one said.“That weight can help with leverage.” Tags: Parimatchlast_img read more

Scottish bookies urge rethink on ‘crazy’ reopening plans

first_img Submit Scottish bookmakers have slammed Holyrood’s decision to reopen betting shops without chairs or live racing, stating that the ruling is ‘crazy’ and a ‘slap in the face’ for bookies which have most likely been struggling during the lockdown period.Scotland’s 900 betting shops – employing around 4,500 people – have been closed since March as part of the national effort to combat the spread of Covid-19.But while shops have been given the green light to reopen on 29 June, the government has imposed strict measures with shops only permitted to open ‘for the purpose of placing bets only’.In addition, the betting shops have been told that all gaming machines must be switched off to avoid the spread of coronavirus.John Heaton, chairman of Scotbet, Scotland’s largest independent bookmaker with 30 betting shops employing 100 people, said: “It seems to me that this policy has been devised by someone who has never been in a betting shop. Dozens of customers hanging around watching the TV is a thing of the past. People come in, watch a race and leave again.“The whole thing is just crazy, and a real slap in the face for an industry which has done its bit for the national effort to tackle Covid-19. I hope that, even at this late stage, the Scottish Government will think again.”In contrast, betting shops in England reopened on 15 June, with anti-Covid measures such as “sneeze screens” and hand sanitisers to protect staff and customers.Michael Dugher, chief executive of the Betting and Gaming Council, said: “Betting shops make a significant contribution to the economy, employing thousands of people, and they provide a safe play for the millions of Scots who like an occasional flutter.“Banning betting shops in Scotland from showing live racing and talking away chairs for punters to sit on suggests a complete lack of understanding of how betting shops operate.“For many of our customers, a trip to the bookies is something to look forward to after three months in lockdown. Yet the Scottish Government would deny them the right to sit and spend a few moments filling in a betting slip or watching a live race with friends, all sitting apart at a safe distance.“And it’s frankly ludicrous that a punter can watch live coverage of a Scottish horse race in a betting shop in Carlisle, but not a few miles over the border in Gretna. We share the Scottish Government’s determination to keep customers and staff safe. It is perfectly possible to limit the number of people in a shop at any one time, just like in the rest of high street retail.“I’ve heard the Scottish Government talk about ‘standing up for Scotland’, but taking away chairs in betting shops takes this to a new level. It’s frankly ridiculous.” Share BGC lauds success of whistle to whistle ban August 21, 2020 StumbleUpon UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 Share BGC calls for updates to ‘outdated’ payment regulations August 21, 2020 Related Articleslast_img read more

A Humorous Look At The Electric Cars Of The LA Auto Show

first_imgAt any rate, YouTuber Alex Lenz pays homage to Earl in his comical coverage of EVs at the LA Auto Show. The point here is that few electric cars — aside from Tesla vehicles and new concepts by Rivian — have a sizable frunk. Being that EVs don’t have an engine, one may assume there’s lots of room to spare. However, due to certain designs, some electric vehicles don’t even offer a frunk at all. This is just another reason that some people are unhappy with new EVs designed by OEMs. Rather than working to make these vehicles next-level, many automakers continue to fall short in certain areas.Video Description via Alex Venz on YouTube:2018 LA Auto Show Part 1: The Frunkpuppy ReportIt’s not like I abandoned traditional coverage of the LA Auto Show and just judged cars by their suitability for frunkpuppies… Ok, I kind of did exactly that. It occurs to me that this video may be a little odd to those not on Twitter.If you’re interested in learning more about Earl’s story, our friends at Teslarati recently published an exclusive article.BONUS: Check out his interview with Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe below:.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on December 6, 2018Categories Electric Vehicle News Rivian R1T Electric Pickup Truck Shocks World In LA Debut [UPDATE] Let’s See What Top Auto Execs Said About Tesla At The LA Auto Show Source: Electric Vehicle News How do electric cars at the LA Auto Show stack up in the “Frunkpuppy” department?If you don’t follow Tesla news on Twitter, you may be asking, what’s a Frunkpuppy? It’s kind of a long and heartwarming story, but for now we’ll just simplify by saying there’s a trend that involves posting pictures of your beloved pets in your Tesla’s frunk. It was started by Tesla Model 3 owner and Twitter user 28delayslater (Earl Banning), who now calls himself The_Earl_of_FrunkPuppy. The trend has grown quite huge, and even Elon’s mother — Maye Musk — has become an active participant.Check Out These Stories: Tesla Model 3 Surprisingly Shows Up At LA Auto Showlast_img read more
