Why Tyson Fury left Britain to make a brand new start of it in America

  Why Tyson Fury left Britain to make a brand new start of it in America It’s still to be determined whether they’re hockey fans, but there is little question that the local residents are diehard Golden Knights fans. More than a year before they ever played a game here, Raiders’ license plates were a common sight in every corner of the Las Vegas Valley. DuBoef believed that with exposure to the American market, fans would fall for the charismatic 6-foot-9 giant like no heavyweight since Mike Tyson some 30-plus years earlier.DuBoef first became aware of Fury when a reporter urged him to listen to an interview Fury had done on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

A 77-year-old man is being hailed for his bravery after video caught him going toe-to-toe with only his bare knuckles against an apparent knife-wielding mugger in the United Kingdom earlier this month.

The senior, identified as Trevor, had just withdrawn money from an ATM in Cardiff, Wales, early on Feb. 5 when an unknown white male approached and demanded his cash and bank card, South Wales police said.

After that, he suggested on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, he might never fight again.

Surveillance video released Wednesday chronicled the clash in Cardiff.

A man clad in black with a yellow vest approached Trevor and grabbed him by the collar. The 77-year-old was quick to act, holding the man in a shoulder lock before hitting him with punches and jabs.

The suspect appeared to wield at least one sharp object and attempted to jab the man with it several times. The suspect, however, remained no match for Trevor and was forced to slowly back off until he goes out of the camera shot.

Analysis: Sing a song for Fury, the new heavyweight champion .
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The world has never seen a heavyweight champion quite like Tyson Fury, the British behemoth who gave Deontay Wilder a beat down to win the heavyweight title and then celebrated by leading his fans in a chorus of “American Pie” from the ring at the MGM Grand hotel. He can fight, he can sing and he can talk. Oh, can he talk. Before the fight Fury talked nonstop about how he was going to switch from boxer to puncher to take the heavyweight title from Wilder. After the fight he talked about how he did just that — and will only get better as his career goes on.
