RelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Joshua: Tyson Fury won’t distract me Tyson Fury looks set to weigh in at his heaviest since his comeback win over Sefer Seferi when he takes on Deontay Wilder later this month. The former heavyweight wold champion has promised to KO his American rival after being denied victory by the judges in their first meeting in 2018. And he showed off his 19-stone frame as he posed for promotional photos ahead of the Las Vegas clash on February 22. Fury claimed in the caption that he will weigh 270lb in a fortnight, a stone heavier than he did for the first fight, and heavier than he has been since he scaled 276lb before beating Seferi in 2018. The giant Traveller was dropped twice by Wilder in Los Angeles but still looked to have done enough to win before the ringside judges scored the fight a draw. Fury has since ditched trainer Ben Davison for SugarHill Steward in the belief the nephew of the late, great Emanuel Steward, can help him stop the unbeaten champion. “They had to rob a man who had been out of the ring for three years and they still couldn’t beat him,” said Fury. “I’m not coming here for a points decision, I’ve had too many of them – nine of them – I’m coming here for a knockout, I’ve had 21 of them and from the heart that’s what I’m looking to do. “This is why I employed Sugar Hill. If I didn’t want a knockout, I wouldn’t have hired a Kronk trainer. If I didn’t want a knockout, I’d have kept Ben Davison and working on that herky-jerky style.” Fury, meanwhile, has admitted to having doubts about changing his trainer – but now believes it was the correct decision. “To train with someone and feel like an absolute novice is exciting,” he told BT Sport. “Me and SugarHill have not worked together for a long time and even before I only had a week with the guy. “Everything is different; I feel like I’m learning again, before we were polishing stuff I did good and it was a winning formula. “Now we’re working on stuff I don’t do so well and that’s new to me, and that’s the challenge. “I thought if there is anyone who is going to be a good heavyweight trainer it’s SugarHill and I believe the switch is a good thing. “I wasn’t so sure at the beginning, you never know what you’re going to get with a new trainer and your whole team is separated, but after three weeks together I knew it was going to be a fantastic choice.”Tags: Ben DavisonDeontay WilderSefer SeferiSugarhill StewardTyson Fury

Hopefully at the end of this episode, your WR rankings are refined and ready to roll for your drafts.We did a preview podcast for all the relevant fantasy positions (and yes, you’re right, that means we didn’t do a show for kickers.) Find the links below. DOMINATE YOUR DRAFT: Ultimate 2019 Fantasy Cheat SheetSporting News Fantasy podcasts available on Youtube, Soundcloud and iTunes.Fantasy Football Podcast: WR previewTimestamps:General WR draft strategy (1:40): “Of all the positions in fantasy, I think this is the one I don’t have a draft strategy for.” We do agree that getting one of the top-eight wideouts in the first two rounds is a smart way to build your team.Our top-eight wide receivers (4:20): Ranking anyone between DeAndre Hopkins and JuJu Smith-Schuster as the top wideout wouldn’t be out of line, based on our top tier. Also: Where are Julio Jones’s touchdowns?SEASON PREVIEW PODCASTS:QB | RB | TE | D/STSecond and third tier of wideouts (14:55): We tell you why Calvin Ridley fits in here, along with discussing the safety of Mike Evans, the underrated uncertainty surrounding Adam Thielen, and Amari Cooper’s up-and-down career.Navigating the middle-tier WRs (28:00): Where should A.J. Green slot in with his preseason injury, and how does that affect Tyler Boyd? We also look at the Rams’ wideout situation and whether Cooper Kupp is quietly the best.Sleepers (35:00): The WR position isn’t short on sleepers. There’s gotta be one in Pittsburgh: Is it James Washington, or is he too obvious? And we’re bold enough to name a Nick Foles pass-catcher in Jacksonville a sleeper. This gem, too: “The eye test fools you when you only watch the Youtube highlight videos.” Our “do-not-draft” WRs (48:25): Not everything the Chiefs’ offense touches turns to gold (yes, we’re talking about you, Sammy Watkins). We also advise against picking the reigning Super Bowl MVP and Alshon Jeffery interests neither of us.Bold predictions (55:09): We predict that the Vikings and Falcons will both have different top-scoring receivers than season projections would expect. In addition, bet on Kenny Golladay.

Pochettino: Spurs rout a present for my wifeby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham celebrated Christmas with a six goal romp at Everton on Sunday.Mauricio Pochettino’s side had to come from behind at Goodison Park after Theo Walcott swept home Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s low cross from Gylfi Sigurdsson’s defence-splitting pass.Everton’s lead was short-lived as Son Heung-min produced a sublime equaliser from a tight angle following a mix-up between Kurt Zouma and Jordan Pickford.Dele Alli put Spurs ahead for the first time after reacting first to Pickford’s save from Son, then Harry Kane made it 3-1 when Kieran Trippier’s curling free-kick hit a post and rebounded into the England captain’s path.In an entertaining game, Christian Eriksen’s sublime first-time shot extended Tottenham’s lead before Sigurdsson scored a consolation against his former club.Son added the fifth and produced the cross for Kane to make it six, yet victory came at a cost for the free-scoring visitors.Pochettino revealed why 6-2 is a special scoreline: “It’s my present for my wife.”We got married 26 years ago. And a fantastic way to celebrate tonight.”On Deli Alli, who was injured after a clash with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, he added: “He didn’t feel a big problem. Maybe a little bit tired from Wednesday. I hope it’s not a big issue. It was a precaution.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy in 2011 and is one of the most accomplished players in BU history. He’s had some rough sledding in the NFL the past two seasons, but this morning he returned to where he played his best football. Griffin is back at Baylor for the Bears’ Pro Day today, and he got a workout in beforehand with one of his former wide receivers, Lanear Sampson.We wonder if Griffin will throw at all during the Pro Day as an extra arm for receivers running routes. Even if he does, he won’t be the most-watched QB at the event. That title goes to current BU signal caller Bryce Petty, who is trying to raise his draft stock.
