Tyson to make boxing comeback at 54 against Roy Jones, 51

first_imgMike Tyson, the former world heavyweight champion who retired in 2005, said Thursday he will make a comeback at age 54, fighting Roy Jones Jr. on Sep. 12 in Los Angeles.On his Legends Only League website, Tyson announced the eight-round exhibition bout against Jones, a 51-year-old fighter who briefly held the heavyweight title and has fought consistently into his 50s.  “It’s just going to be amazing,” Tyson said on a video call on ESPN. “It’s 100% of it looking to be Mike Tyson in the ring,” Tyson said. “I’ve got one speed — forward.”In a battle for the aged, Tyson said he wants to show older can still mean exciting in the sports realm.”It’s because I can do it and I believe other people believe they can do it,” Tyson said. “We aren’t washed up. Somebody says over-age is washed up but they have a bigger fan base than the guys who are training now.”Tyson envisions elder statesmen events of mixed martial arts and NBA fame, mentioning such former NBA stars as Dennis Rodman and Allen Iverson.Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion in history at 20 years and four months when he stopped Trevor Berbick in the second round in 1986 to win the World Boxing Council crown.Within a year, Tyson was the undisputed champion and dominated the division, earning his nickname as “The Baddest Man on the Planet” and going 37-0.But in February 1990 at Tokyo, Tyson suffered a 10th-round knockout at the hands of James “Buster” Douglas in a stunning upset. Tyson shrugged off any notion of danger for serious injury for himself or Jones, saying that California rules will require they both wear headgear for the fight.”We’re both accomplished fighters,” Tyson said. “We know how to protect ourselves. We’ll be alright.”Tyson finished 50-6 with 44 knockouts while Jones, who last fought in February 2018, is 66-9 with 47 knockouts.Tyson vowed it would be competitive rather than for show — “we’re showing our skills and fighting” — and said he wants to recapture the fearsome form he once displayed. ‘Taken care of my body’ He was arrested for rape in 1991 and convicted in 1992, serving three years in prison before his 1995 release and return to the ring. Tyson regained the title but lost twice to Evander Holyfield, disqualified the second time for biting his rival’s ear, earning a suspension that kept him sidelined for 18 months.He had one last chance at the heavyweight crown, losing to Britain’s Lennox Lewis in 2002, and retired after six rounds against Kevin McBride in 2005 in his final fight, days shy of his 39th birthday.”I’ve been through some experiences and now I’m back here,” Tyson said. “I’ve taken care of my body.”Jones has done much the same since winning his first middleweight title in 1993 and rolled through the super middleweight and light heavyweight ranks at 49-1 before dropping three fights in a row in 2004-2005.His championship run included a 2003 victory over John Ruiz for the World Boxing Association heavyweight title, a crown he never defended before rejoining the light heavyweight ranks.Jones fought at least once a year into 2018 but has spent more time as a commentator than fighter in recent years.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… German national team footballers said Wednesday they would donate 2.5 million Euros ($2.7 million) to help fight the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer (C) pledged to make a donation to help with the coordination of the coronavirus response “We need to look after each other in times like this. We in the national team have been thinking and we are going to donate to a good cause,” said Germany captain Manuel Neuer in a video posted on Instagram. Other players such as Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka and Borussia Moenchengladbach’s Matthias Ginter also posted similar videos. The players did not specify what form the donation would take, but they directed their followers to the online platform “Wir Helfen”, which aims to coordinate volunteers across Germany during the crisis. “There was very quick agreement on the fact that we wanted to make a gesture as a team,” said national team director Oliver Bierhoff at a German Football Association (DFB) press conference on Wednesday. He said that Manchester City star Ilkay Gundogan, Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos and Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen were also among those who came up with the idea. Meanwhile, national team coach Joachim Loew called for people to change their behaviour after the crisis. “The world is experiencing a collective burnout” he said via video link from his home in Freiburg. “The Earth seems to be defending itself against mankind, which always thinks it can do everything and knows everything,” said Loew.last_img read more

Daniel Grabher: Global Bet – Strong prospects for virtuals post-FOBT reduction

first_img Related Articles Parimatch secures ‘premium VS’ content with Global Bet July 24, 2020 Submit Share StumbleUpon Share BtoBet grows LatAm portfolio with GlobalBet deal August 12, 2020 TVBET passes GLI test for five live games in Malta and Italy August 25, 2020 As all betting incumbents make tough adjustments to their operating frameworks post the FOBT stake reduction, Daniel Grabher – Founder & Chief Executive of Global Bet – details that bookmaker virtual inventories are more important than ever at driving much needed retail engagements.  ______________SBC: Can you tell us more about what sets Global Bet’s virtual offering ahead of other virtual suppliers?Daniel Grabher (Global Bet Founder & Chief Executive): We have seen over the course of the recent years that the betting sector has never been more competitive. With marketing budgets stretched as operators fight fierce pricing and bonusing wars, the product is once again emerging as a genuine way to stand out from the crowd. This is why we decided years ago to make the product perfect for the next generation of players.Advanced 3D visualisations and a complex AI take the gap between real life sports and virtual sports to a new level. This is what keeps players glued to the screen on your website, in your retail channels or on mobile devices. When people see our latest games, they instantly realize what brings Global Bet´s virtual offering one step ahead of the competition.Our mission is to attract and deliver to millennials, as they are already familiarised with high-quality graphics and video games. Both Generation Y and Generation Z can be called “Millennials”, with the primary difference between the two being technology. Generation Y grew-up on personal computers, cell phones, and video game systems, while Generation Z has grown up on tablets, smartphones, and apps. Yet, the common ground between both generations is that both have been transforming and altering the way we place bets online, not just in the UK, but globally.SBC: How big a role do you think virtual sports betting could play in replacing fobts in the UK?DG: The fact that the latest UKGC report includes virtual betting for the first time, outlines the importance of this niche product. Next month’s reduction of the maximum wager on fixed odds betting terminals from £100 to £2, will hit the profitability of the majority of shops operated by big chains and independents alike. Operators are already looking for new revenue sources.Lost FOBT revenue will be made up by increased sports betting facilitated by the introduction of self-service betting terminals (SSBTs) which allow punters to gamble on new betting products. The role of virtual sports within these terminals is to fill the void, particularly on days with less sports events. Integrating the benefits of virtual sports into their operations is a logical step for UK operators for maximizing revenues and minimizing expenses. Data published by the UK Gambling Commission shows that virtual sports revenue totaled £170 million pounds, which was £40 million pounds more than real tennis brought in and represents roughly 8.5% of overall online betting revenue. I personally think that this numbers will be increasing massively after 1st of April.SBC: In terms of social responsibility, why are virtuals a better option than fobts were for UK retail betting operators?DG: Take a walk down any busy street in London and pop your head into one of the many betting shops. You are likely to see several fixed odds betting terminals (FOBTs) complete with addicted punters feeding them with money.In terms of social responsibility virtuals allow a person to play a couple of games only to be excited by the adrenaline rush. Whether he or she wins or loses does not matter. The thrill of the game leads them to play again in the future more for entertainment without them eventually losing all their money.SBC: How significant can virtual sports be for betting operators in the summer with the absence of a major football tournament?DG: Many see virtual sports as the perfect ‘gap-filler’ in the absence of a major football tournament. This is because the presence of virtual sports offerings in physical and online locations had the sole function of retaining punters’ interest before the next live sports event begun.This is no longer the case; virtuals are fast becoming a critical part of any modern sportsbook offering. The main reason for the rise of virtuals beyond the instant gratification that these games offer is the fact that punters are blown away by the sheer amount of entertainment virtuals offer them on a daily basis.SBC: How crucial do you think virtuals will be in the newly regulated US market?DG: Virtual sports are big business in European markets, accounting for 25 percent of all sports betting handle in Italy for instance. That’s a number that surprises many people who are unfamiliar with the product. In many states, virtual sports will act as filler content during seasonal and time lulls and stand out as an appealing gambling product. But in New Jersey for instance, instead of gaining a foothold and piggybacking as “filler” content during lulls in live sports, virtuals will probably act as a substitute for them. That being said, in newly opened markets lacking legal sports betting industry like the US, many things might work in virtual sports’ favour. Instead of piggybacking on sports betting, virtuals can be an alternative.Sports and entertainment are two very important parts of culture in the United States so products like our Virtual Basketball that already have massive success in Europe, are a perfect fit for the vast U.S. market. ___________________Daniel Grabher – Founder & Chief Executive – Global Betlast_img read more
