Joshua’s undisputed world title fight with Fury must be in Britain, says Hatton

first_img Loading… “I don’t think Matchroom want the fight. All day long, Tyson Fury beats AJ. “It’s not a difficult fight to make. Whatever is on the table is 50-50. Fury is the No 1 heavyweight but we don’t say 60-40. 50-50 down the middle. “Once we get the offer that we’re supposed to be getting, we’ll be in a position to sit around the table and knock it into shape. It’s not about me or Matchroom. It’s about getting this fight made.” Hatton reached agreements for fights against superstars Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao during his career and is hopeful that Fury and Joshua can confirm their huge showdown. “This fight, it can’t not happen,” said Hatton, who has been a member of Fury’s training team in the past. read also:Fury better than Joshua in every department, claims Warren “It’s got to go ahead, otherwise all of us will never forgive ourselves. Years ago, British boxing, you couldn’t think of two British heavyweights. We have the two best in the division now and they’ve got to fight each other. “When they sit around the negotiating table, everyone has just got to be sensible. A lot of fights don’t take place because of who has the lion’s share. We can’t let this fight not happen, I feel.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has suggested that talks are ‘ongoing’ for a massive fight against Joshua in 2021, with all the world heavyweight titles at stake. The Brit rivals could be lured to America or even the Middle East by lucrative offers, but former world champion Hatton has urged Joshua and Fury to deliver a historic fight on home soil once the sport resumes. “I don’t see why it can’t happen at Wembley,” Hatton told The Boxing Show on Sky Sports News. “You need a big outdoor arena. “The majority of money is made when you go boxing in the United States. The vast size of the United States, that tends to be where you earn your money, but a fight of this size, I think it needs to be in England. Two British heavyweights. “Two men at the top of the game. A brilliant clash of styles, a brilliant clash of personalities. We’ve got to have it in the UK, for British boxing. We need this in the UK, it’s an absolute must.” Warren insists WBC champion Fury is ready to finalise terms with unified title holder Joshua, provided they agree a 50-50 deal. “There have been ongoing talks,” Warren told Sky Sports. “Fury? I know I speak on his behalf – he wants the fight. More than anything, he wants the fight. Anthony Joshua’s battle of Britain against Tyson Fury should rightfully be staged in front of a big audience in the UK, says Ricky Hatton.

WG girls hoops falls to C-NS; boys sweep to league wins

first_imgLooking to rebound at Nottingham Friday night, WG nearly did so, but was caught late by the Bulldogs and fell by a score of 57-56.Down 18-13 after one period, the Wildcats stormed in front 28-26 by halftime, and for most of the rest of the game neither side could sustain any margin.WG lost despite 15 points from Cunningham, 13 points from James and 12 points from Molly Benetti, with Erin Dipaola adding nine points. Nottingham’s Amaya Williams poured in 26 points, nearly half her team’s output.On the boys side, West Genesee took a 7-3 record into last Tuesday’s game against 1-9 Cicero-North Syracuse, but nearly got upended before escaping with a 64-61 victory.A close first half gave the Northstars some belief and then, in the third quarter, it outscored the Wildcats 16-9 to take a 44-38 lead, led by Luke Paragon, who would finish with 20 points and eight rebounds.Not panicking, WG reeled in C-NS during the fourth quarter, went back in front and held tight as Will Amica’s 15 points led a balanced effort.Adam Dudzinski put in 13 points, with John Benson getting 10 points. Kam Jones contributed nine points as James Tully put in six points.Two nights later, WG’s game against Nottingham was designated as Coach Joe Adams Night in honor of the former basketball and lacrosse coach at the school who passed away from brain cancer at age 46 in January 2018.And it proved a close, tense affair that the Wildcats pulled out 50-46 over the Bulldogs to improve to 9-3 overall.Having handled Nottingham 63-45 when they first met in December, WG had a much more difficult time in the rematch, falling behind 22-20 by halftime.The Wildcats’ offense roared to life in the third quarter enough to inch in front 36-32, and it held on late with a mix of production from Amica and help from his teammates.Amica finished with 19 points, while Jones had seven points. Benson, Dudzinski and Tully got six points apiece, all of which was needed since Nottingham’s Mazi Jackson led all scorers with 22 points.Both of WG’s teams face Liverpool late this week, with the boys game taking place Saturday at Onondaga Community College’s Allyn Hall as part of the Pathfinder Bank Classic.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story What C-NS still had was its dominant junior forward, Jessica Cook, but WG mostly contained her in the first half, though it could not take advantage due to its own offensive struggles.Down 20-11 at halftime, the Wildcats did pick things up in the game’s latter stages, Meredith James earning 10 points as Catie Cunningham and Mollie Coyne each got seven points.Yet C-NS pulled further away as Cook finished with 19 points, helped by nine points from Alita Carey-Santangelo, eight points from Mackenzie White and six points from Julia Rowe.
