He tweeted: "Congratulations @francis_ngannou but if you want to make some real money come see the GK." The disparity in fighter pay between the UFC's Ngannou and unbeaten boxing champion Fury was laid bare. Ngannou, 35, walked away with £440,000 after beating Gane, 31, but does receive bonuses when pay-per-view sales are calculated. Whereas Fur, 33, reportedly earned £22m alone for his brutal 11-round knockout in his trilogy bout with...
    TYSON FURY pleaded with the referee to stop his 2014 fight with Derek Chisora to spare his opponent from a severe beating. Del Boy is currently on a three-fight losing streak after a defeat to Oleksandr Usyk was followed by back-to-back losses to Joseph Parker in little over a year. 2Tyson Fury pleaded with the ref to stop him from badly beating Derek Chisora in 2014Credit: Getty 2Battered Del Boy was eventually pulled out of the fight after the tenth roundCredit: Getty Despite that, the 38-year-old Brit has recently declared he is open to a battle with former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. However, the man who dethroned the American and then retained the title against the Bronze Bomber once delivered a brutal beat-down to Chisora. And that should serve as a warning to the Londoner as he tries to secure another step-up to the elite level. Chisora had already lost his British and Commonwealth belts to the Gypsy King back in 2011. But that did not stop him from taking a rematch against Fury three years later. The two...
    TYSON FURY has warned brother Tommy that he will have to retire the family name if he fails to beat Jake Paul. The heavyweight world champion, 33, also called on the pair to show some "balls" and sign a contract agreeing to fight. 3Tyson Fury expects Tommy Fury (pictured) to "splatter" Jake Paul 3Paul has been feuding with Tommy for several months Tommy Fury, 22, and Jake Paul, 24, have been feuding for several months. And though both have vowed to knock out one another, a fight does not appear to be on the horizon currently. Fury shared his desire to see his brother fight Paul and believes there is no way he should be losing to the Youtuber. Fury told Behind the Gloves: "If Tommy can't splatter Jake Paul, I'll retire him from boxing myself. "He's got ambitions of being a world champion, never mind beating some YouTube guy… His name's Fury. If he can't beat Jake Paul, I'll have to change his name."

In all, more than 50 people died in the riots with thousands more injured and the incident still haunts the city to this day. Described “as the Jackie Robinson of police videos,” by the Rev. Al Sharpton, the Rodney...

    On Mother’s Day this year I want to thank my mother for the most precious gift: My life.   She gifted me with my life, even though at first she was uncertain about it, and even though she had to change the plans she had made for herself and her future.  My mom, Naomi Barber, was courting my dad, Rev. A.D. King, in 1950. She was a freshman at Spellman College in Atlanta and she had big dreams. But as their relationship got more serious, they made the choice not to wait for the wedding night. When she realized she was pregnant, her first thought was to have an abortion.  GREG LAURIE: BILLY GRAHAM'S CRISIS OF FAITH – HOW ONE MOMENT OF DOUBT SOLIDIFIED HIS COMMITMENT TO GOD Abortion wasn’t legal then but it was available. The American Birth Control League, the forerunner of Planned Parenthood, tried to convince my mother the baby growing in her womb was just a lump of flesh and that she should try a procedure called a D&C, which they described as a clever solution to female...

    JAKE PAUL doesn't have a hope in hell of beating Dillon Danis in a street fight, according to UFC commentator Joe Rogan.

Danis - a team-mate of former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor - attempted to confront Paul but was unable to do so as the ex-Disney told the driver of the car he was in to 'dip'. And Rogan believes Paul would've been in a world of trouble if the Marcelo Garcia black belt managed to get his hands on him. During a...
    A Miami metro rider has been caught on camera viscously assaulting a lone female traveler kicking, punching and slamming her head in an unprovoked, random attack. Joshua James King, 25, is accused of beating up Andrea Puerta, 29, during the incident on September 4, leaving her with a concussion, a broken rib and bruising.  Surveillance footage shows as the man, identified by police as King, walks onto the metro before launching the sustained attack on Puerta. The clip shows as he punches her more than 20 times.  Puerta told Local 10: 'I remember that I closed my hands and I said, "stop, stop". He did not stop. There was a moment when he said, "Sorry" and I looked at him and he punched me and after that, I don’t know what happened.'  She said of her attacker: 'I’ve never seen him in my life. I never know him until that moment.'  After passing out Puerta managed to get up and leave the train before calling 911, footage shows.  Her attacker remains on the metro; he is said to have assaulted two more men later that same day. ...
    The camera used to film the beating of Rodney King by Los Angeles police in 1991, a case that triggered deadly race riots, is to be auctioned this week. Nate D Sanders Auctions in LA will take bids for the Sony Video8 Handycam on Thursday. The police brutality against King was filmed on the camera by bystander George Holliday. The beating left King with brain damage, but the white officers involved were acquitted a year later. The case had a profound effect on race relations and the use of force by police in the US. Mr Holliday's footage of the beating, filmed from the balcony of his apartment, is considered to be the first viral video of policy brutality and an early example of citizen journalism. The footage foreshadowed the use of mobile phones to record police abuse, as seen in the recent death of African-American George Floyd in custody.

    (CNN)The Sony video camera that recorded the beating of Rodney King by Los Angeles Police Department officers, a tape shown on TV stations across the nation and that sparked outrage, is going up for auction.The beating happened just after midnight March 3, 1991, when LAPD officers struck King, then 25, more than 50 times with batons after he had led officers on a high-speed chase. George Holliday recorded the beating from his apartment balcony and called the LAPD, but they weren't helpful, according to the auction house, Nate D. Sanders Auctions. So Holliday then called a local news station, KTLA, which later aired the footage. A still image from Holliday's footage shows Rodney King on the ground surrounded by police officers.The footage was one of the first examples of a viral video showing police violence against Black people.In April 1992, when the four White officers indicted in the beating were acquitted, massive protests broke out in South Central Los Angeles.Read MoreThe Los Angeles riots lasted five days and left more than 50 people dead.This Sony camera was used by Holliday...
    This non-functional Sony video camera may seem like a vestige of a pre-smartphone days, but it gives a timely view into the lens of history. The Handycam that recorded the Los Angeles police beating of black motorist Rodney King in 1991 will hit the auction block on Thursday. The auction comes at a time when Black Lives Matter unrest continues to simmer around the nation following the cellphone-recorded May death of George Floyd in police custody. The starting bid on the relic is $225,000, according to a Tuesday release from Nate D. Sanders Auctions. On March 3, 1991, then-31-year-old plumber George Holliday stood on the balcony of his apartment to film the disturbing scene of four cops brutally attacking 25-year-old King during a routine traffic stop. The cops struck King, who died in 2012 at age 47, more than 50 times with batons, shot him with stun guns and kicked him. At the time, King was on parole after being convicted for robbery, and the officers stopped him for speeding down a darkened street. Holliday taped most of the...
    DILLIAN WHYTE reckons his body of work against Tyson Fury will lead him to a knockout finish against the Gypsy King.

Whyte reckons the Bronze Bomber, who also floored Fury on two occasions in the first fight, was exposed for not being able to body punch. Fury has been warned to expect "relentless" attacks to his torso by 'The Body Snatcher' with the pair in line to face next year. Whyte told Sky Sports: "He knows Deontay Wilder doesn't hit as hard as what everyone makes out, and Deontay Wilder can't body punch. "Had Wilder been hitting him in the body, earlier in the fight, he wouldn't have been able to get up from that...
    So, which is it? Are police officers who commit misconduct simply “bad apples” scattered among the 99% of good cops? Or is their behavior symptomatic of a deeply flawed system infected with racism and brutality? It is possible to find the answer, and the historical example of Rodney King’s brutal beating by police provides a road map for making the determination. When a commission was established to investigate that incident, it took on a mission that went beyond simply determining what happened. It looked at the far broader culture of policing in Los Angeles, which is what needs to happen in all cases of serious misconduct. For starters, it was important to understand the events that preceded King’s beating. On the night in 1991 that he was beaten, one of the LAPD officers involved had responded earlier to a domestic violence call involving a black couple. He described it to a fellow officer, using the department’s official, monitored message system, as “right out of ‘Gorillas in the Mist.'” And then there were the circumstances of the beating itself. More than...
