RelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Saudi may have enough uranium deposits to make nuclear fuel – Reports Anthony Joshua, Okolie plot world title double Tyson Fury has warned Anthony Joshua about losing muscle and changing his style for his rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr.After his shock defeat at Madison Square Garden on June 1, Joshua has the chance to win back his titles as he faces Ruiz in Saudi Arabia on December 7. During his press tour last week, Joshua revealed his trimmer physique and said his training so far has been more ‘boxing focussed’. But Fury is adamant that Joshua should not try to work on a new fighting style to beat Ruiz. ‘I see he’s lost a bit of weight, he’s been taking notice of people saying he’s got too muscle muscle on him,’ Fury told BT Sport. ‘But really that can be taken out of context as well. ‘You can’t change a bull into a racehorse. It doesn’t work like that. ‘A racehorse can’t tow a wagon or a heavy load. Doesn’t work. ‘So if you take that big heavy horse, strip his muscle off, and then put him in the same cart he was in trying to pull that heavy load again he’s not going to manage it. ‘So I think they are going to try to lose weight and try to move a lot. ‘But you can’t do that in one camp, that takes a lifetime practice. ‘We saw Tony Bellew try to do it against [Oleksandr] Usyk, tried copying my style but after eight rounds his legs went. ‘It works, it’s effective, I’ve been successful 29 times in a row with it. ‘You can’t learn it overnight. ‘What tends to happen with new things in new camps is when someone practises something in the gym for eight, 10, 12 weeks, and then they go in a fight and try to do it, as soon as they get clipped or get tired, they revert straight back to what they once knew. I’ve soon it many, many times. ‘As soon as he holds his feet and starts to fight back, he loses in my opinion. ‘But if he can get on the jab and box and move, which I’ve never ever seen him do, amateur or pro, for 12 rounds which for a heavyweight is a very hard thing to do, at some point he’s going to have to stand and fight. ‘And if he keeps running away from Ruiz with the jab, he’s not got the footwork to do that. ‘Work on what you’re good at, that’s what you’re good at. ‘Tighten your defence up and go forward and smash them.’Tags: Andy Ruiz JrAnthony JoshuaMadison Square GardonSaudi Arabia
AS the race to the top seat of the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC) heats up, one competitor has outlined his plans should he be successful.Former president Mahendra Boodhoo, one of the candidates who emerged has pinpointed the return of the Dakota 100 and marshal training as two of the major plans he has for the sport in 2020.Releasing via a post on his facebook page, Boodhoo stated, “We will reintroduce the Dakota 100 which is 100 laps around the long circuit with adequate safety marshals and safety responders. We will get major sponsors for this event so that we can have foreign competitors joining this series and encourage local cars that were built for endurance racing to come out.”In addition to that, the manifesto added, “We will have a full complement of volunteers to ensure all safety and follow the regulations. We will arrange training of marshals and follow protocols.”His first task if elected back in office would be the fan experience he stated, adding, “We plan to keep the fans more informed and be interactive with the fans by resuscitating the GMR&SC website and other social media platforms together with getting the forum up and running where we can get feedbacks from our fans.”He has also outlined plans to increase the membership of the club through ‘non-traditional members’ as well as enhanced improvement to the South Dakota raceway.“We have seen tremendous improvements in the form of racing within the last two years, kudos to the teams and present executives. We plan in the short term to focus on developing the drag strip to meet international standards, by re-laying the entire quarter mile to a flat surface including a full operational timing system with digital boards at the finish line.”His slate includes: Shairaz Roshandin (Vice-President), Azim Jaffar (Secretary), Chetram Singh (Treasurer), Azaad Hassan (Assistant Secretary/Assistant Treasurer), Rameez Mohamed, (Club Captain), Joel Evans (Technical Advisor), Vivekanand Harichand (Committee Member), Reyaud Rahaman (Committee Member), Paul Jiwanram (Committee Member), Diana Dornellas (Committee Member) and Udoh Kanu (Committee Member).Elections, along with the annual general meeting of GMR&SC, take place on Monday.
