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’s trilogy rematch against Deontay Wilder has been slated for October 3. Fury dominated Wilder last month, inflicting a first career defeat on his American opponent to claim the WBC world heavyweight title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It was the second clash between the rivals, after their first meeting in December 2018 was scored as a draw. Under the terms of their contract, the loser of last month’s clash was entitled to demand a third fight, and Wilder triggered that option just six days after he his seventh-round stoppage at the hands of the Gypsy King. Now that fight has been slated to take place on October 3, again in Las Vegas, according to The Athletic. The trilogy had been expected to take place on July 18, but Mirror Sport reported earlier this week that the fight would have to be put back three months with boxing currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. Fury’s promoter Bob Arum told ESPN: “You could not guarantee the fighters that the event would take place on that date. “We couldn’t convince them or ourselves. Where were they going to train for it? It just made no sense. You just have to take a step back. “How are you going to sell tickets? It’s absolutely ridiculous to say the fight is on when the Brits can’t even get there. “So everybody has to take a step back. Boxing is not isolated, it’s part of what’s happening in the world. So possibly the fight will be in early October.” The change of date also throws a potential unification fight between Fury and fellow world champion Anthony Joshua into doubt. A December date had been discussed, with the fight likely to take place in Saudi Arabia – assuming Fury beat Wilder again and Joshua saw off the challenge of Kubrat Pulev. The Bulgarian is due to challenge for Joshua’s three belts at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20, but that fight could be moved to July 25 or later.Tags: Deontay WilderESPNGypsy KingLas VegasTyson Fury
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who is vying for Sen. Barbara Boxer’s (D-Calif.) U.S. Senate seat, held a roundtable discussion with students from USC and several other California universities Wednesday, stressing her dedication to creating jobs and lowering the federal deficit. The event was also met with a small protest from members of USC College Democrats.Campaign · Senatorial candidate Carly Fiorina spoke to students Wednesday in Doheny Library. – Sunil Murali | Daily Trojan Fiorina, who is running against former California Congressman Tom Campbell and California State Assemblyman Chuck DeVore in the Republican primary, recently launched 17 campaign coalitions, including Students for Carly, the group that sponsored Wednesday’s event.At the roundtable, Fiorina criticized Sen. Boxer’s record, calling her a “uniquely failed senator” and emphasized the high unemployment rate in California.“What’s going on in California demonstrates that we can kill the American Dream,” she said.California, Fiorina said, used to be a place for innovation, but it is now plagued by unemployment and a large deficit.Though Fiorina lacks political experience, she argued that her background prepares her for Washington the same as a background in politics.“Our founding fathers intended this to be a citizen government,” Fiorina said. “I am a citizen who understands how jobs are created.”Fiorina said she would focus on allowing small businesses to grow.“I come from a very different point of view than Barbara Boxer or President Obama,” she said. “I think they believe that government is the answer. I don’t think it is. The way you create jobs is not through government. The way you create jobs is to make it easier for those people who actually create the jobs — innovators, entrepreneurs and small businesses.”She also voiced her support for strict limits on federal spending, saying she would move to force government agencies to reduce spending by 5 percent.Addressing health care reform, Fiorina only said that there are many other issues to be discussed before such a sweeping reform bill should be considered.Fiorina said she has focused on the employment issue because of the impact it could have on young voters.“Young people are very influential, but also a lot of the problems we’re trying to solve are going to impact young people the most if we don’t solve them,” she said.Students at the event responded well to Fiorina’s points.“It was thought-provoking,” said Rob McCarty, a sophomore majoring in business administration who said he has not decided whom he is voting for yet. “I especially liked her firm stance with the Wall Street banks, even though it may not be as copacetic with other conservatives. I felt that she has the ambition, she has the charisma to be able to bring about some sort of change.”Dylan Steinman, a sophomore majoring in economics and political science who describes himself as a swing voter, said he is now planning to vote for Fiorina.“I really am confident in her,” he said. “I think that she’s pretty bipartisan. I think that she’s really trying to get something done and that she won’t necessarily just vote along party lines.”Alexa Ekman and Lauren Korbatov, co-chairs of the newly founded USC Students for Carly, said they were excited by the turnout and the response from students.“So far the excitement has been really overwhelming because students see how the economic issues are going to affect them,” Korbatov said.Ekman said the group will continue to recruit members and “to shine a light on exactly what she said today and Barbara Boxer’s failed record and inefficiency, just to prove to Californians and students that we need a new candidate in D.C.”Students on the other side of the aisle are less sold on Fiorina’s promises, however.“She’s a failed CEO who was fired at HP for being mean and incompetent,” said Bob Mulholland, senior adviser to the California Democratic Party, who helped USC College Democrats organize the protest. “Now she’s acting as if she’s God’s gift to California.”Though the protest only attracted six people, Micah Scheindlin, a junior majoring in American studies and the political director for USC College Democrats, said he was pleased with the result, given that they had little notice of the event. He said the group wanted to provide an opposing view point in light of Fiorina’s appearance.“Carly Fiorina is not a good candidate for California — that’s how we feel, that’s how the state party feels, and we wanted to make our voices heard,” he said.
Comments Published on September 20, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Sixty feet. That’s how the soccer team thinks of itself. Thirty players and 60 feet. Last year’s team did not view itself so simplistically. It was mired in team politics about the firing of former head coach Dean Foti. Players became more concerned with personal disagreements and less concerned with this simple number. But this year, all that really matters are those feet and what they do on the field. Of those 30 players, only 10 were on the team last year to notice the changes that have occurred since Foti was released and new head coach Ian McIntyre was hired. The veterans have embraced the new players and the changes that came with McIntyre’s coaching. ‘It can be a little bit awkward when you’re returning and you see the number of new faces in the locker room exceeds those of the returners,’ McIntyre said. ‘But the older guys are leading by example. I refer to them as the cultural architects of our program. They set the standard, and ultimately they’re the leaders of the group.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text The most obvious change is in the playing style. McIntyre tried out a couple of formations, but for now has settled on a 4-5-1, which fosters an attacking style of play. In this formation, there is only one defensive midfielder, said senior forward L.J. Papaleo. Last year, there were two. This allows more players to push forward, leaving only five field players and a goalie behind to defend. Last year, the team played a possession game, keeping the ball in its own half and advancing little by little. For most of the returnees, the adjustments have been minimal. Senior midfielder Geoff Lytle said he does not feel he has had to make any changes to this style of play. But Papaleo has had to get used to receiving the ball up top instead of having it going through the midfield. ‘There’s more playing direct,’ Papaleo said. ‘I’m more the point man. I hold up the ball, lay it off to a midfielder. Whereas last year, it was more play the ball through to me, and I’d run on to it.’ Aside from changes on the field, the 10 returnees have encountered changes in the chemistry of the team, as well. In fact, Lytle said team chemistry was the biggest difference this year. As old and new players have gotten to know each other, integration has not been a problem. ‘In the locker room, everyone talks to everyone,’ Papaleo said. ‘Last year there were cliques, and that kind of brought our team down. Everyone’s just one unit together.’ Starting over the summer, the veterans reached out to the newcomers by sending them letters and e-mails. Sophomore goalkeeper Ryan Jones helped organize the communication. Federico Agreda, a forward who transferred from Garden City Community College, was one of the recipients. Agreda said he found the information helpful upon his arrival at Syracuse. ‘It said (things) about the life here,’ he said. ‘To keep yourself away from the trouble, the parties, the drinking. How to manage your time, especially because there are so many people here. And control yourself, because we’re part of a team here.’ This team’s slogan for the year is ‘Maximum effort is the minimum requirement.’ This saying comes from McIntyre, and so does the motivation to live by it. Whether it was the advice in Jones’ letters or an atmosphere formed during preseason, Lytle said the team has taken the saying to heart this year. Last year, it might have just been a slogan. So 60 feet, all clad in laced-up cleats with Nike socks, walk on to the field as the SU soccer team. There is no telling which players were there last year and which are just getting used to the grass of the SU Soccer Stadium. There is just one obstacle left for the returners to overcome. Said Lytle: ‘The hardest part would be understanding the new guys from Sweden.’ email@example.com
