first_imgRicky Hatton has called on boxing authorities to “save Mike Tyson from himself” as the sports legend plots a comeback. The former heavyweight champion has confirmed he wants a return to the ring after showing off an incredible body transformation. Iron Mike says he has lost five stone and looked in sensational shape recently during a handful of public appearances, including a photoshoot on a beach. But with Tyson aged 54, Hatton, who himself called it a day when he realised his body couldn’t do it anymore, is worried about “his hero getting hurt”. Speaking on the Gary Newbon Sports Show, as reported by MailOnline, Hatton said: “I hope he’s taking the micky with his talks about making a comeback. “For his age he looks fantastic in that gym – but he’s still 50-plus and I don’t want to see any of my heroes get hurt. “I hope I’m in the same shape as Tyson when I’m 54 but we’ve got to save Tyson from himself, or the boxing authorities have got to save him from himself. “We can’t let Mike fight, no matter how fantastic a shape he’s in.Advertisement Loading… “Let’s calm it down Mike, you know?!” Tyson has been confronted with several options ahead of his ring return, including a trilogy bout against 57-year-old Evander Holyfield, who is also making a comeback for charity. And whatever he decides to do, Hatton, 41, has compared Iron Mike’s incredible return to fitness to that of the man named after him, Tyson Fury. read also:Mike Tyson: If I don’t have a wife, I’ll kill myself He continued: “I’ve met Tyson on many occasions and we all know the history with Tyson. “But it’s inspiring, like Tyson Fury, to see where he has come from to where he is today. “He has come on tenfold.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Promoted Content6 Extreme Facts About HurricanesDisney Princesses Reimagined As “GoT” CharactersWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?This Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s Hysterical7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsTop 10 Most Costly Liquids In The WorldBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The UniverseDazzling Wedding Looks From Different Countries In The World10 Hyper-Realistic 3D Street Art By OdeithPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffitilast_img read more

first_imgBy Jerry Mackey Kaden Reynolds has been a terror early in the 2020 season and Saturday night he advanced from the 11th starting position start to score the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock main event win.   Cole Mather took advantage of a front row start in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature and went on to record the win on his birthday. Mather took the win ahead of Damon Murty. The IMCA Sunoco Late Model feature saw veterans Curt Martin and Jeff Aikey occupy the front row and battle early before Aikey was able to move out to the race lead. A caution with 10 laps to go brought Martin back to Aikey’s rear bumper, setting up another battle. INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (June 6) – The Independence Motor Speedway held racing action on Saturday with fans in the stands for the first time in 2020. With the Governor of Iowa easing the Covid-19 restrictions, a great crowd turned out to see 130 race car drivers put on an excellent show on a beautiful night for racing.  center_img The Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod main event saw past national champion Tony Olson come from the fifth row to take the checkers ahead of a strong running Kyle Bentley. The IMCA Modifieds saw several drivers take their turns at holding the lead. Early it was Chris Snyder before Josh Foster took over the point, meanwhile Aikey was steadily marching forward from a fifth row start. Aikey took the lead before half of the laps were complete and went on to record the win ahead of a hard-charging Troy Cordes.   Aikey was again able to hold back Martin on the restart as Darren Ackerman was able to hold the bottom line and race under Martin into second. At the checkers it was Aikey, Ackerman and the youngster Logan Duffy. last_img read more

first_img The 25-year-old club captain has committed to Thomond Park until June 2018, in a clear boost to the Irish province and Ireland boss Joe Schmidt. Toulouse and a host of French Top 14 clubs were understood to have monitored O’Mahony’s situation, but the talismanic back-rower has opted instead to stick to his roots. O’Mahony’s new deal to stay with his home province is also a decisive strike from Munster, who had been left reeling after losing promising fly-half JJ Hanrahan to Northampton Saints for next season. Leinster stars Jamie Heaslip and Sean O’Brien rejected the lures of Toulon last season, with Munster scrum-half Conor Murray also turning his back on French interest. British and Irish Lions fly-half Johnny Sexton will return to Leinster from Racing Metro this summer – and now O’Mahony’s new deal effectively secures all Ireland’s frontline talent on home soil ahead of the World Cup. Sexton’s return has already bolstered head coach Joe Schmidt’s preparations for the autumn World Cup in England and confirmation of O’Mahony’s new deal is another shot in the arm. Title-holders Ireland host England at the Aviva Stadium on March 1 in a potential RBS 6 Nations decider, with both teams unbeaten and Schmidt’s side chasing a record-equalling 10th consecutive victory. O’Mahony has developed into a mainstay for both Munster and Ireland, cementing himself as the front-runner as the Test team’s next captain as and when Paul O’Connell should retire. The 27-cap flanker is regarded as one of the country’s most important stars by Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) bosses. “Peter’s performances for Ireland over the past few seasons have been exceptional,” said IRFU performance director David Nucifora. “The esteem in which he is held by Irish rugby is reflected in the fact that at the age of just 25 he has already captained his country and province. “Leadership is just one of the many qualities he brings to Munster and Ireland and we are delighted that he has committed to Irish Rugby.” Munster have been struck by criticism in the past for failing to push enough top talent through their academy system, but view O’Mahony as the jewel in the home-grown crown. Academy graduate fly-half Hanrahan shocked the province by spurning a new deal earlier this year to join Northampton for next term, but O’Mahony’s continued presence offers vital stability. “We are delighted that Peter has signed an IRFU contract which sees him remain with Munster up to the end of the 2018 season,” said Munster chief executive Garrett Fitzgerald. “Peter, a product of our academy system, is hugely competitive and highly ambitious. He leads by example on and off the field and is a perfect role model for all aspiring young players.” O’Mahony said the privilege of leading his home club proved central to his decision to sign his new deal. “Munster is my home province, the team I’ve grown up supporting and am honoured to both represent and captain,” said O’Mahony. “I look forward to working hard with my team mates, coaching staff and management to achieve continued success for both Munster and Ireland in the years ahead.” Flanker Peter O’Mahony is the latest Ireland star to reject a move to France after signing a new three-year contract with Munster.
