Where Do Cobwebs Come From?

  Where Do Cobwebs Come From? The sticky spider streamers tend to appear in room corners. Here's why they hang around even after a spider has left the premises.The term cobweb is used to describe any web spun by a member of the Theridiidae family of spiders, made up of a number of species that tend to be found in residential homes. But colloquially, people tend to use the phrase to refer to abandoned threads of webbing they wind up clearing with brooms. When in use, these cobwebs tend to be sticky but unstructured, lacking the amazing and intricate design of webs woven by other species. Spiders make webs in the hopes of trapping prey, but if one location isn’t proving fruitful, they’ll move to another.

Undisputed cruiserweight champion Usyk debuts in the top division on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Action at 2am, and will display his new physique at Friday's weigh-in.

Previously restricted to a 14st 4lbs (200lbs) limit, Usyk's first heavyweight weigh-in will tell us much about how he will approach his new goal of becoming just the third boxer ever to become world champion in the biggest two divisions.

You might have tension or muscle pain from lack of exercise. Resume activity slowly and methodically to avoid injury. The benefits of exercise are not purely cosmetic. Instead, exercise is necessary to help you maintain healthy muscles and to send oxygen-rich blood to your tissues.

The long-term target for Usyk's assault on the heavyweight division has been Joshua, who aims to regain his world titles from Andy Ruiz Jr on December 7, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Like Ruiz Jr, Usyk has a major height and reach disadvantage on Joshua. But Usyk does not believe Joshua has trouble against smaller opponents.

"I don't think that's the reason [that Joshua lost to Ruiz Jr]," Usyk previously told Sky Sports.

"There is a general problem that takes place. It doesn't matter whether your opponent is tall or short. It doesn't matter whether you fight a 2m tall guy, or a 1.80m guy."

He also warned Joshua: "I would love to do the same thing that happened in the ring."

It is against opponents like the reigning IBF, WBA and WBO champion that Usyk will look like a natural heavyweight at first glance. He is an inch taller with a significant reach advantage.

But Ruiz Jr is among the heaviest of the big men, clocking above 19st before he beat Joshua. That's probably three stone more than Usyk will be. Ruiz Jr's usage of his weight allows him to punch hard, and this is the world that Usyk is now entering.

Usyk is the mandatory challenger to the WBO belt and expects to fight for it next year.

The WBC champion's statistics provide Usyk with the opposite problems to Ruiz Jr. Wilder is one of the lighter heavyweights, below 16st last time out, and three stone lighter than Tyson Fury when they fought. So Usyk would be a very similar weight to the reigning heavyweight champion.

But Wilder's height and long arms are his X-factor - he is significantly longer than Usyk and would expect to crash his right hand home, as he always does. Would Usyk have the speed to deal with that?

The biggest of the big men - the giant Fury is the tallest, with the longest reach, and often the heaviest of his peers. He slimmed down to above 18st last time out but, in every way, he is a lot bigger than Usyk. Throw in his slippery style, similar to Usyk's, and he resembles a bigger version of the Ukrainian.

Usyk may face new opponent amid Spong doubts

  Usyk may face new opponent amid Spong doubts Oleksandr Usyk's fight against Tyrone Spong is in doubt after Eddie Hearn revealed the Ukrainian's opponent has returned an adverse doping test. Unbeaten Usyk is due to begin his pursuit of dominance in another division this weekend, live on Sky Sports, after becoming undisputed cruiserweight champion.But his opponent for his first heavyweight bout in Chicago is in jeopardy after testing by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA).

That initial weight gain is very common, especially among women. “Quite often with my female clients, at first they’ll gain muscle at a faster rate than they lose fat. Their body fat is a bit more stubborn to come off,” says Seedman. Women’s muscle growth usually taper off after the initial gains, Seedman

The extra weight you gain after starting a workout isn't from building muscle or packing on fat. It's likely water weight . Unfortunately, the odds that you’ve added even a small amount of muscle , let alone a few pounds of the stuff, is highly unlikely, says Dr. Lawrence Cheskin, director of the Johns Hopkins

Lessons from the past

Evander Holyfield and David Haye are the only boxers to be cruiserweight and heavyweight world champions. They both have identical height and reach with Usyk (6'3'' and 78'').

"I never bulked up to the division, I just did not cut weight," Haye told Sky Sports.

He was 15st 2lbs then 15st before his fights with Wladimir Klitschko and Derek Chisora respectively, and was two stone lighter than his opponent on both occasions. For better or worse, Haye embraced being lighter and quicker.

Holyfield, before Haye, weighed-in less than 15st when he became heavyweight champion against Buster Douglas in 1990 and was below 16st when he beat Mike Tyson. Holyfield then gave up two stones in weight, two inches in height and six inches of reach when he lost to Lennox Lewis.

Haye and Holyfield ultimately came up short against the very biggest of the big men, in Klitschko and Lewis respectively.
