MIKE TYSON damn near broke the internet last week when he released a short clip of himself looking in astonishing shape aged 53 to fuel his comeback rumours.Six thunderous punches, trademark bobbing and weaving and utterly bad intentions from the reformed wildman reminded the world of Iron Mike’s brilliant glory days.Mike Tyson is interested in a boxing return to raise money for charityCredit: AFPBut George Foreman, who took 10 YEARS off dominating the heavyweight division only to return and become the weight’s oldest ever champion when he stunned Michael Moorer aged 45, has warned Tyson off of a comeback.Although Tyson still looks razor sharp and more mentaly stable than during his younger and much darker days, Foreman has told him to stay retired and leave the hardest game to younger men.Because speed and reflexes are the first things to leave a fighter and punch power is the last attribute to depart an aging boxer, the heavyweight division has a few tales of returning kings.But the blue riband weight class and all the divisions below them also carry tragic tales of financial desperation and athletic delusion that left great boxing men reduced to rubble after missguided returns.George Foreman became a two-time heavyweight champ aged 45Credit: AP:Associated PressGeorge ForemanHeavyweightHiatus: 10 yearsFirst record: 45-2Second: 31-3 Verdict: HitThe brooding muscle-bound monster lost his world titles and unbeaten record to Muhammad Ali in 1974’s Rumble in the Jungle and the shock 1977 points loss to Jimmy Young sent him into early retirement as an ordained minister.But in 1987 a rolly-polly fella, who looked a bit like George Foreman, reemerged with a self-deprecating sense of humour.The affable 38-year-old went on a brilliant win streak until losses to Evander Holyfield and Rocky star Tommy Morrrison seemed to end his career – again.But in November 1994, aged a cool 45 years and 299 days, formidable Foreman won the WBA and IBF heavyweight titles from Michael Moorer.The incredible story is one of boxing’s most loveable but is the first argument a faded fighter uses when arguing for his own comeback.Muhammad Ali stands over George Foreman in the Rumble in the JungleCredit: GettyMuhammad Ali:HeavyweightHiatus: Three yearsFirst record 29-0Second: 32-5Verdict: HitPerhaps the greatest comeback story in the history of sport, that helped a man once vilified as a traitor become a global icon, is also one of the saddest and most tragic.In the Spring of 1967, Ali was the undefeated unified champion of the world with the scalps of Sonny Liston, Archie Moore, Henry Cooper and Floyd Patterson.But when he bravely refused the Vietnam War draft he was stripped of his titles and licence, costing him his prime fighting years of 25 to almost 29.The 1971 Fight of the Century loss to Joe Frazier, The 1974 Rumble in the Jungle win over George Foreman and the 1975 Thrilla in Manilla revenge win over Smokin’ Joe redefined the sport and remain, decades later, pinnacle moments.But the punishment Ali endured chasing money at the end – against younger brutes like Leon Spinks, Larry Holmes and Trevor Berbick – contributed to the Parkinson’s that ruined what should have been the greatest retirement.Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali after beating Sonny ListonCredit: AP:Associated PressMike TysonHeavyweightHiatus: Four yearsFirst Record: 41-1Second: 9-5Verdict: MissIn modern day 2020 COVID-19 lockdown, Mike Tyson still insists the sexual meeting he had with Desiree Washington in 1991 was completely consensual and that his prison sentence was unjust, making his tale even more painful.Though battling childhood demons, bereft following the death of mentor Cus D’Amato and rebuilding after the shock loss to Buster Douglas, Tyson was close to his peak.Dismissed by some as a flat-track bully, Iron Mike had just done 19 brilliant rounds with Donovan Razor Ruddock before the court case came to slash him down to size.Tyson mkII was an even bigger attraction but even his 1996 WBC world title win over Frank Bruno could not save him.Demons followed Tyson around, allowing more dedicated boxers like Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis to claim wins over him before he retired just shy of his 39th birthday as perhaps boxing’s biggest squandered talent.Mike Tyson knocked out Frank Bruno during his second run in the

world with only two defeats and a bright future.But, after an agonising ACL knee injury scythed him down in a November sparring session and the lure of a political career pulled hard, the elder slugging sibling vacated his crown and took to democracy.But, when the leg heeled and the knuckles itched, especially with baby bro Wladimir owning two other versions of the title, Vitali returned in October 2008 and regained his old crown in his first bout back.In his four-year long second coming, Vlad added wins over Manuel Charr, Derek Chisora, Shannon Briggs and Chris Arreola to his record and quit, like old enemy Lennox, on top.Larry Holmes enjoyed his comeback but was brutalised by Mike TysonCredit: Getty Images – GettyLarry HolmesHeavyweightHiatus: Three yearsFirst Record: 45-3Second: 24-3Verdict: HitThe Easton Assassin hated every minute of his one-sided whooping of his hero Muhammad Ali when they clashed in 1980, so he knew the dangerous of prolonging a boxing career. Underrated Holmes first retired in November 1986, aged 37, after controversial back-to-back losses to Michael Spinks but by January ‘88 he was lured back for a big-money loss to Mike Tyson.The slippers went back on until April 1991 when Holmes embarked on a brilliant comeback, suffering defeats only to Evander Holyfield, Oliver McCall and Brian Nielsen.Though a 1999 fantasy fight with George Foreman fell through, Holmes slipped back into retirement with his fortune and his faculties banked.The owner of perhaps the best jab in heavyweight history, Holmes needed more competition during his but still amassed a magnificent recordEder Jofre is the most celebrated boxer to come from BrazilCredit: Hulton Archive – GettyEder JofreBantam-featherHiatus: Three yearsFirst record: 47-2-4Second: 25-0Verdict: HitBrazil’s finest fighter had no business being able to shake off ringrust and tot-up such a record after hitting the beach for such a lengthy break.Unlike all the giants previously mentioned, bantams rely on their speed, reflexes and stamina and all of those would usually vanish as quickly as the money and narrow waist, once a fighter retires.But Jofre is one of history’s heaviest hitters and had no such problems.When two decision losses to Fighting Harada, in his native Japan in 1965 and ‘66, cost 5ft 4in undisputed lineal king Jofre his titles, he jacked.But three years later, reinvented as a featherweight, Jofre went on a second tear and was crowned WBC and lineal champ in 1973 before retiring at the summit with a stunning 50 wins by KO.Tyson Fury slaughtered Deontay Wilder for the WBC crownCredit: ReutersTyson FuryHeavyweightHiatus: Three yearsFirst record: 25-0Second: 5-0-1Verdict: HitThe Gypsy King dethroned 10-year champion Wladimir Klitschko in his adopted German backyard in November 2015, realising a lifelong dream, and knew he was heading for oblivion.A doping ban, drink and drug abuse, mental health problems and obesity consumed him over the next two years, until WBC champion Deontay Wilder pushed his luck just a lick too far by goading him into a comeback.A whopping 10st was melted off his frame, with the help of young mastermind Ben Davison, just two tune-up fights were needed and Wilder was bamboozled, only clinging onto his belt thanks to generous draw.So Fury went back to America and casually switched from feather-fisted stylist to ruthless KO machine, battering Wilder until all he had left were excuses and a trilogy rematch clause.Sugar Ray Leonard is one of the greatest boxer’s in historyCredit: Getty – ContributorSugar Ray LeonardWelter to light-heavyweightHiatus: Three yearsFirst Record: 35-1Second: 1-2-1Verdict: MissMoments after the underwhelming May 1984 win over Kevin Howard, after being floored for the first time in his career, one of boxing’s greatest talents retired.The single loss to Roberto Duran had been avenged, Thomas Hearns had been stopped in the 1981 Fight of the Year and the fire in the undisputed welterweight icon’s belly had just dimmed too much to continue.But when Marvellous Marvin Hagler wanted a dance partner for the Ring, WBC and lineal middleweight honours in April 1987, Leonard was back.Over 15 legendary rounds, in one of the closest-to-call fights ever, Leonard got the nod that enraged Hagler so much he quit – with no comeback.He had the audacity to pop up to light-heavyweight next – stuffing coins in his pocket to appear beefier at the weigh-in – and beat Danny Lalonde.A rematch draw against Hearns was more than a gift and the 1997 KO loss to Hector Camacho – with Leonard aged 40, after a six-year lay-off – was thankfully the end of his genius.Mark WeinmanSuper-welter to super-middleHiatus: 21 yearsFirst record: 11-3Second: 1-1Verdict: HitSometimes a little career-break or holiday can be just the tonic. But the Hebew Hammer really pushed the envelope with his retirement.The New Yorker had a promising career in the late 1980s but by ‘91 he had suffered three consecutive defeats and retired honourably.That was until September 2012 when the 50-year-old announced his return with a second-round stoppage in Florida.The super-fit veteran suffered a KO loss the following year but he had broken enough records to retire a very proud man.Jack Johnson vs Jim Jeffries was perhaps the first super-fightCredit: Getty – ContributorJim JeffriesHeavyweightHiatus: Six yearsFirst record: 19-0-2Second: 0-1Verdict: MissJack Johnson should have been the most celebrated athlete of his era but his blackness was deemed unforgivable during the early 1900s.After every dirty was pulled to prevent Johnson from claiming his rightful crown, he finally claimed his title in 1908, only for rich bigots to pay undefeated Jeffries to come out of retirement and be their Great White Hope.Inside boxing’s first purpose built stadium, Jeffries and Johnson prepared for a 45-rounder but thankfully the champ needed only 15.Jeffries, now a 35-year-old shadow of his old self, was whacked hard by an uppercut in the fourth and Johsnon knew his comeback was finished from there.Mike Tyson shows off unbelievable speed aged 53 as heavyweight legend gears up for sensational boxing return Most awesome bullfighting festival Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 REAL vs FAKE GOLD Amazing Controlled Building Demolition You Probably Haven’t Seen Before Source: Boxing – thesun.co.uk Top 5 Best Budget Hotels In Dubai under AED 400 a night. 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures!

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith and Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin shake hands following an NFL football game on Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014, in Pittsburgh. Tampa Bay won 27-24.(AP Photo/Don Wright/File)CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) _ Ten months ago, fans swarmed around Lovie Smith after his team’s open practice, eager to get an autograph from the former NFL coach who had just been hired to turn around the moribund football program at Illinois.Over the weekend was a much calmer scene with about 150 fans at Saturday’s practice and a line of about 40 waiting for his signature.After athletic director Josh Whitman fired Bill Cubit and then hired Smith on March 7, there has been the realization that it will take time to fix things. The 3-9 season spelled that out, too, but players say it is happening.“(The culture change is) on the rise, for sure. It’s definitely changed since the last coaching staff left,” senior running back Kendrick Foster said. “We’re definitely meaner and tougher, our mentality to compete is more fierce, I can say that. It’s a work in progress and you have to trust the process.”A year ago, Smith had little time to assemble a staff and moved spring practice to April. He didn’t even know his players’ names. He knows them now _ and they know him.“We’re not scrambling to get in and get things installed with the players and trying to get everything done,” defensive coordinator Hardy Nickerson said. “We’ve had a little more time to meet with the players, get things installed so we have a better understanding of what we want to do on the field.”Many of the players here a year ago were either recruited by Cubit or former coach Tim Beckman, who was fired amid allegations of player mistreatment. Cubit didn’t last long, either, and the hope was that Smith would at least bring some stability.“We’re trying for a huge change in culture. We didn’t have a great culture in the past,” junior offensive lineman Nick Allegretti said. “All we’re trying to do is change the culture, make it tougher, stronger program in general that can make it through a Big Ten season.”The key is accountability, coaches and players agreed, and the staff has built a personal relationship with each player based on honesty. Players say they see Smith as a player’s coach: When they need something from him, he is there to help. When they are not doing well, he will let them know.“It’s been about looking yourself in the mirror,” senior wide receiver Malik Turner said. “If everyone’s doing that, then we’re moving in the right direction, because it starts with us.”Smith already had success in his first recruiting class despite questions whether he could land talent after spending nearly 20 years in the NFL. But his first class was ranked No. 34 by Scout.com and No. 45 by 247sports.com, and recruits have raved about Smith, who knows that he’s set to start building a Big Ten power for years to come.“We hopefully set a foundation that will help us win championships one day, that’s been the plan all along,” Smith said.Coaches like offensive coordinator Garrick McGee don’t think Smith has changed at all, though he has had to change the things he does compared to what he did while leading the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.He’s become accustomed to visiting families around the nation, making his pitch for why parents should send their sons to Illinois. Twitter has become a norm for the 58-year-old coach, tweeting at celebrities like Chance the Rapper, trying to get everyone involved in the Illini rebuild.He’s become a regular at men’s basketball games, sitting behind the basket and watching his favorite sport.It’s been part of a change that coaches and players know isn’t close to being done. It will take a few years to assess Smith’s progress, assuming he remains in place, but he and his players know it starts with workouts on those cool February and March days. The players have become accustomed to seeing Smith on the field, but there are still moments where they can’t believe that he is their leader.“Sometimes I do sit back and see how blessed I am to have this coaching staff that believes in me, and just believes in this team and program,” Foster said. “They just continue to surprise me with how much they care about us, that’s what you want from a coaching staff, just caring about the person, not the football player, they care about both, and that’s the amazing thing about this staff.”___More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25
On sharing the lifting of the trophy with Sergio Busquets, Iniesta said it had no significance other than “needing help. There’s nothing different on the horizon. It’s good that Busi gets used to [lifting trophies] for the future.” RELATED STORIES “But this is our third Copa del Rey in a row, and that must be valued.” CEST Looking back on the season in general, though, there was a hint of disappointment: “We are required to play well, but also to get results. We didn’t do great in the other competitions and we were punished. Andres Iniesta was happy to close the season with Copa del Rey success against Alaves and praised Barcelona’s ability to keep winning trophies. Iniesta: “Ya va bien que Busquets se vaya acostumbrando para el futuro” 28/05/2017 SPORT.es “A final is a final and it is always difficult [to win],” the Barça captain said. “Even though we were favourites, these games are always tough. We are happy because we reached the aim of ending the season with the Copa.” Upd. at 11:25 IN SPORT.ES Finally, he was asked about outgoing manager Luis Enrique: “He arrived at a delicate time and his record has been more than positive. We will keep trying to win every year.” Barcelona player ratings as they win 29th King’s Cup
By The Nelson Daily SportsFor those people living under a rock, the month is April and not February.Which means golf courses should not be opening for the first time, but already have seen hoards of birdies, bogeys and pars.Still good things come to those who wait.And the wait is over as the 18-hole Balfour course begins the 2011 season this week.The Les Furber designed facility opens the driving range for patrons Monday before sending golfers out to the first tee box Friday, April 15th.“Last year we opened March 15th, so we’re a full month behind,” said Balfour club professional Brad Woods. “But last year it rained a lot in April so maybe we’re right on schedule.”Balfour is not the first course out of the starting gates.Woods said drier courses in Christina Lake, Creston and Birchbank have already seen players on the track.Castlegar is offering a modified nine until the snow backs off from some of the isolated parts of the course.The Balfour course is known a challenging course with clearly defined fairways capped with beautifully contoured greens. All these while players get the opportunity to witness the stunning beauty that is emphasized by the natural surroundings.Some of the highlighted tournaments this season at Balfour include the Ted Hargreaves Memorial, the Barry Crispin Memorial, the Seniors and Ladies Opens as well as the Men’s Match Play in late May.Call the Balfour pro shop at 250-229-5655 to make a tee time.No date on when Granite Pointe at Nelson will [email protected]
Flooding on the Nelson waterfront along with the worst June for rain on record has put the Nelson Mixed Slopitch League underwater this season.“It’s been a very trying season,” league spokesperson R.J. Warren told The Nelson Daily.“We played out first game since June 15 on July 3.”“Instead of Lakeside Ball Diamonds we’re calling them Lake Diamonds,” Warren added.The league started the season in May with 17 teams. The season was moving along briskly until June’s rains wiped most of the games.Then came the flooding along the Nelson waterfront, which cost the league even more games.The results forced the league reps to move games to Queen Elizabeth Park — two games are played each evening.Warren said league reps held a meeting to determine when, and where, the playoff tournament would be played — Salmo, Mount Sentinel or Queen Elizabeth Park.The result was an eight-to-eight vote split, which one team already folding for the season due to the cancellations.“We’re going to play the tournament at Queen Elizabeth,” said Warren.The tournament, originally set for July 20-22, begins Sunday, July 15 with preliminary round games.The Final is set for Sunday, July 22.Hopefully it doesn’t rain.
