    TYSON FURY could find himself ruing the day he decided to buy his expensive Versace dressing gown. The Gypsy King has been sporting the swanky robe during his Las Vegas training camp with Sugarhill steward. 7Tyson Fury has bee wearing an expensive Versace robe during his trip to Las VegasCredit: Twitter @Tyson_Fury 7The Gypsy King has been rocking his expensive robe along with coach Sugarhill Steward But the dapper £355 gown - which comes in an array of colours - has brought bad luck to many fighters who have worn it before. UFC stars Conor McGregor, Jorge Masvidal and Israel Adesanya all tasted defeated after wearing the designer garment. McGregor first sported the robe ahead of his 2017 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr, which he lost via tenth-round TKO. Masvidal, meanwhile, wore the same robe at UFC 246 in a bid to get the Irishman's attention - which resulted in him being brutally trolled by The Notorious. And Gamebred would go on to lose his next two fights after rocking the housecoat. UFC middleweight king Adesanya wore one ahead...

    SAUL 'CANELO' ALVAREZ'S £300million DAZN contract - the biggest in sporting history - was cut short last year after just three of the 11 bouts had been completed. The Mexican parted ways with the broadcaster and his promotional outfit Golden Boy - fronted by Oscar de la Hoya - after a dispute over the terms of the deal. 2Canelo is one of the highest paid athletes in the worldCredit: EPA It lasted less than two years having been struck before his fight against Rocky Fielding at the end of 2018. The only other fights he undertook while the contract was ongoing were against Danny Jacobs and Sergey Kovalev. And he has now opened up about the reasons why he decided it was time to leave the lucrative contract and become a free agent. Speaking to In Depth with Graham Besinger, he said: "Look, I don't like to talk much about people, but I've been a very loyal person, always. And I was very loyal, always with Golden Boy. [De La Hoya] is not Golden Boy. He doesn't do anything in...

During an interview with Graham Bensinger, the Mexican said of the athletic commissions sanctioning the fights: “They give them boxer’s licences when they’re not a boxer. “They could get them killed. This is not a soccer game, they could get them killed."...

    South Texas rancher John Saunders told "America Reports" on Wednesday "it’s time to open the curtain and let people see what it’s really like down here" regarding the Biden administration's border crisis. Some members of the media have called out the administration for denying them access to what many believe to be a crisis of its own making. Migrants have entered his family’s property at least 20 times within the year, Saunders said, adding, "We got a real problem down here." The rancher, who owns a property near Laredo, noted migrants sometimes use cars to race to the border and have damaged his fence. "It really adds up," he told host John Roberts, noting repairs can cost up to $6,000. TEXAS GOV. ABBOTT REPORTS COVID OUTBREAK, NO 'USEABLE RUNNING WATER' AT MIGRANT HOLDING FACILITY "We have a property on the highway not far from the river and when [migrants are] getting chased by law enforcement, usually human smugglers, they just turn off the highway at full speed, mind you, and just go straight through the fence … [and] go 'til they can’t go anymore, then they bail out and they are...
    CALLUM SMITH fears Billy Joe Saunders lacks the power to earn Canelo Alvarez's 'respect'. WBO champion Saunders is aiming to unify his belt with Canelo's WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine titles on May 8. 3Canelo beat Callum Smith in December 2020Credit: Handout - Getty 3Billy Joe Saunders is set to fight Canelo on May 8Credit: ©Mark Robinson/Matchroom It comes after the Mexican superstar won the straps by beating Smith in December and defended them against Avni Yildirim. Despite Saunders' slick, southpaw style and unbeaten record, his fellow Brit has written off his chances to 'put a dent' in Canelo. Smith, 30, told Sky Sports: "Everybody always said me and Billy Joe had styles to trouble him but in completely different ways because we are completely different fighters. "Billy Joe has got movement, he's a southpaw, a bit awkward and can probably stay out of trouble. "But I don't know if he's got anything to keep Canelo off - enough power. "Canelo is hard to hit clean and I don't know if Billy Joe has enough...
    TYSON FURY backed Billy Joe Saunders to have the slippery southpaw skills to become Canelo Alvarez's 'kryptonite'. The super-middleweight pair were set to fight last May, until the coronavirus pandemic KO'd the clash. 4Tyson Fury pictured with pal Billy Joe SaundersCredit: Stevenage FC 4Unified super-middleweight world champion Canelo AlvarezCredit: USA TODAY Sports Instead, Saunders, 31, went on to send Martin Murray into retirement while Canelo won the WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine belts against Callum Smith. The two are now on course to meet later on this year, so long as Alvarez, 30, gets past mandatory challenger Yildirim on February 27. And Fury, 32, is confident his close friend Saunders has all the tools in the box to dethrone pound-for-pound king Canelo. He told Gareth A Davies : “Me and Billy Joe Saunders, we are not journeymen, we are not in boxing for a payday," he added. "We’re not in boxing to make some numbers up and get a few extra million quid in our bank. Not interested. "We would rather have zero money and...
    GENNADY GOLOVKIN is 'not willing to chase' a trilogy with Canelo Alvarez - with Chris Eubank Jr and Billy Joe Saunders other alternatives. Golovkin is two years removed from his first ever defeat, which came on points to his arch rival Canelo. 6Gennady Golovkin during his 2018 defeat to Canelo Alvarez Credit: Getty Images - Getty It followed 12 months after Alvarez walked away with a contentious draw in their first meeting. But despite several feeling GGG was unfortunate not to have his hand raised on both occasions, the Kazakh will not focus all his efforts on another rematch. His trainer Jonathan Banks told SunSport: "It's not a priority. "G just wants to fight and he wants to continue fighting for titles and please the fans. That's really what it boils down to. "That's the bottom line and if anyone wants to step up he's willing to accept, but he's not willing to chase anybody." Canelo's 2018 triumph meant he dethroned Golovkin as middleweight ruler. But since then, the Mexican, 30, has stepped...
    PLACERVILLE —  Mike Saunders talks about Placerville’s infamous “noose of justice” almost dispassionately. Even when, on one recent sweltering afternoon, he told me about unnamed people threatening to use it on him, he ended the story with a resigned shrug that masked the frustration in his eyes. Such is the lot in life for a prominent, liberal-minded Black man who lives in overwhelmingly conservative and white El Dorado County. He has learned to pick his battles. Which brings me back to the noose. Much has been said lately about the reasons to get rid of the cartoonish piece of rope that hangs menacingly from a tree on Placerville’s official city logo. And, to a lesser extent, reasons to ditch the mannequin named George, who is strung up by his neck on the side of a downtown building, and the nickname “Old Hangtown,” which still welcomes visitors to the city on a humongous sign along Highway 50. Far less has been said about what it will take to actually do any of this. I’m referring to the inevitable complications, compromises and...
    BOXING legend Bernard Hopkins believes Billy Joe Saunders has turned down the chance of a lifetime in dodging Canelo Alvarez. Despite chasing the fight for years, Saunders decided not to accept a September showdown, insisting he needed a longer fight camp. 4Billy Joe Saunders has turned down a September bout against CaneloCredit: Getty Images - Getty 4Bernard Hopkins is shocked Billy Joe Saunders has turned down the Canelo fightCredit: PA:Press Association He also insinuated that the money on offer wasn't as attractive as it should have been. Saunders is the WBO super-middleweight world champion, but Hopkins thinks he has made a mistake in turning down Canelo. Speaking to Sky Sports, the 55-year-old, who promotes Canelo, said: "You should always be prepared. "Billy Joe Saunders is not a rookie in the game. Billy Joe Saunders has been in some highlighted moments. "He understands, he had a taste of the high level.

    CALLUM SMITH has again entered himself into the Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez sweepstake after Billy Joe Saunders pulled out of the running. Mexican superstar Canelo, 30, is searching for an opponent with a planned ring return for September. 3 Saunders, who he was due to face in May before the pandemic, ruled himself out citing an inability to train properly, but fellow champion Smith is not giving up on the fight. His trainer Joe Gallagher told Sky Sports: Canelo has got no excuse now, but to fight Callum Smith. "Callum is in the gym, he is training, he's been back a couple of weeks now, and if that date and opportunity is put to Callum Smith, he's ready to go. "He'll take that and I can't see no reason why Canelo - when they said all along it was between the two of them - Billy Joe Saunders is out, let's do Callum." Smith would be defending his super-middleweight title, with Canelo desperate to become a fully fledged four-division champ, having only won the WBA's 'Regular' title....
