Joshua at home in Garden despite never fighting there

Joshua at home in Garden despite never fighting there On his way to his debut at Madison Square Garden, heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has hit a detour. His planned opponent failed several drug tests. Unfazed by the switch from Jarrrell Miller to Andy Ruiz Jr., Joshua strode into an empty Garden on Monday and was right at home. The holder of four heavyweight belts will face Ruiz on June 1 in Joshua's first U.S. appearance. The fight is more about his making a mark in this country than his opponent. Miller had a penchant for mouthing off, his 23-0-1 record built against boxers with little to no chance of entering the ring for a title bout.

Deontay Wilder (born October 22, 1985) is an American professional boxer. As an amateur he won a bronze medal in the heavyweight division at the 2008 Olympics.

The bad blood between heavyweight boxer Deontay Wilder and his upcoming opponent, Dominic Breazeale, appears to have reached dangerous levels as the men prepare to square off Saturday at the Barclays Center in New York.

“If he dies, he dies,’’ Wilder told USA TODAY Sports. “This is boxing. This is not a gentleman’s sport. This is a gladiator’s sport. And with bad blood, we know I possess the power."

Wilder (40-0-1, 39 knockouts) is coming off a draw against Tyson Fury and said he has no intentions of letting Breazeale (20-1, 18 knockouts) survive the scheduled 12 rounds.

“Man, this fight, with the bad blood we got, I don’t see this fight going long,’’ Wilder said. “I’ll be surprised if this fight goes past three rounds. I don’t like this guy. I don’t have no good intentions for him. I wish the worst on him.

The bad blood stems from an incident Feb. 27, 2017, when Wilder fought Gerald Washington in Birmingham, Alabama, and Breazeale was on the undercard. That night, Wilder scored a technical knockout against Washington in the fifth round and Breazeale, who knocked out Izu Ugonoh in his undercard bout, had been rooting for Washington.

15-year-old motorcyclist dies after collision with Mercedes driven by 17-year-old, police say

15-year-old motorcyclist dies after collision with Mercedes driven by 17-year-old, police say A 15-year-old motorcyclist who was airlifted to a hospital with serious injuries after a crash Sunday night has died, Greer police said Monday. The Spartanburg County Coroner said Christian Scott Belue, of Greer, died just before 8:30 p.m. Belue was a Greer High School student, according to Greer Police Officer Patrick Fortenberry. Police said the crash was reported just after 7:30 p.m. on E. Wade Hampton Boulevard at Arlington Road. Police said Belue was driving the motorcycle across E. Wade Hampton when a girl driving a 2008 Mercedes turned in front of him. The Mercedes driver was cited for failure to yield right-of-way on a left turn, Fortenberry said.

If Deontay Wilder is to be Anthony Joshua’ s next opponent in London this summer – far from a given – the unbeaten American will bring with him not only his lethal fists and his WBC belt but also the burden of shame after a grossly insensitive assertion that he “wants a body” on his record before he retires.

What is not OK, according to Wilder, is Breazeale made threatening remarks to Wilder’s brother later that night at a Birmingham hotel.

“He told my brother, and it was confirmed by other people that was around, that Breazeale made the statement that ‘I’ll kill you. If my family wasn’t here, I’d kill you and your entire family.’ ” Wilder said. “And I don’t take threats lightly.’’

So, Wilder said, he later tracked down Breazeale.

“I just put my hand in Breazeale’s face and I told him, ‘Never come to my city threatening my family ever. Don’t ever do that,’ ” Wilder said. “And it escalated from there. His coach started pushing and shoving and that’s when my team came in. They entered the building and then it was a whole scuffle.

“When it became a whole scuffle, not only was Breazeale running around, but his wife was running around as well, like she was Xena the Warrior Princess, screaming and hollering and doing what she’s doing.’’

Wilder said he’s angriest about Breazeale claiming Wilder endangered Breazeale’s wife and children.

“The thing about it, in America if you want to get people on your side, add women and children in there," he said. “And that’s what he’s tried to (do).

“Breazeale is an opportunist. He’s one of these guys that will waste water or ice in your establishment or business and slip on it on purpose just to sue you. That’s what type of person he is. For that reason, I got bad blood.

“And in boxing, you can be able to harm a man to the point of killing a man and get paid for it in the same night. If it happens, I’m not going to apologize. He’s been asking for this all along.’’

Although Wilder is the favorite on Saturday, Breazeale told Sky Sports he believes he is the fan favorite for the fight.

"Hands down without a doubt. A win for myself is a win for the world," he said. "Nobody no longer wants to see Deontay Wilder as WBC heavyweight champion."
