Joshua-Povetkin

Anthony Joshua is returning to Wembley. The unified WBA/WBO/IBF champion will make the sixth defense of his titles when he faces Alexander Povetkin on September 22.

The fight marks Joshua’s first bout at Wembley since his 2017 Fight of the Year victory over Wladimir Klitschko.

Joshua’s last victory was a tactical unanimous decision over Joseph Parker to capture the WBO heavyweight title. Povetkin competed on the undercard and delivered a Knockout of the Year candidate with a left hook stoppage of David Price.

“I can’t wait to get back in the ring – the end of March feels a long time ago now,” Joshua told the BBC. “Povetkin is a serious challenge that I will prepare meticulously for. He has serious pedigree and only a fool would underestimate what he brings to the table.”

This will be Povetkin’s second world title shot, having dropped an unanimous decision to Wladimir Klitschko in 2013. Since then, Povetkin is on an eight-fight win streak with knockout wins over Mike Perez (TKO1), Carlos Takam (KO10) and Mariusz Wach (TKO12). He is the mandatory challenger for Joshua’s WBA title.

Ticket prices are expected to be announced in the next two weeks.

Count me as one of the people who didn’t delude themselves into thinking Joshua-Wilder was getting made this year. Outside of that, this is the best heavyweight fight Joshua could make.

Povetkin is very dangerous when he gets inside. Problem is, I don’t see the Russian being able to consistently work there due to Joshua’s thudding jab and improved footwork. More often than not, Povetkin will be caught in mid-range where Joshua’s massive right hand will be waiting.

In the meantime, Wilder can get his own WBC mandatory out of the way this fall against Dominic Breazeale. I fully expect both champions to get knockout wins and bring the anticipation to a fever pitch for the biggest and most historic fight for 2019.

Lil Wayne x Drake – “Family Feud”

Posted: December 29, 2017 by Ismael AbduSalaam in Uncategorized

Talk about stealing someone’s thunder. On that same day that Jay Z and Beyonce drop their TIDAL exclusive video for “Family Feud,” Lil Wayne and Drake pounce on the track for the former’s Dedication 6 project. Drake’s verse is notable for backing his mentor in his legal war against Birdman and Universal (I’m thinking of paying Wayne what Universal owes/ My nigga spent a lifetime going platinum and gold/ He should own half the label/ Shit outta control…”) and sending an olive branch to Meek (Too long like a sentence from a Philly judge/ Fuck is the point in all the beefing when we really blood?) .

Speaking of Wayne, he floats over this one and will have his loyal fans reminiscing on his 2006-2008 run. No one wins when the family feuds? For tonight, Drake and Wayne are.

ThePunisher

Let the brutality begin. After arguably stealing the show in Daredevil season 2, Frank Castle returns to NYC looking for revenge on those responsible for the murder of his wife and children. That hunt leads to a grand conspiracy which Castle must take apart while staying one step ahead of the police.

As evident from this clip, we can expect this to be the most violent series Marvel has ever produced.

The release date is still confidential, but we can confirm the series will be out before the end of 2017.
