Wilder accuses Fury of loading gloves, demands rematch

Deontay Wilder wants his third fight against Tyson Fury, and just threw a strong accusation at the WBC and lineal heavyweight champion.

In a dramatic video posted through Twitter on Saturday, Wilder claimed Fury loaded his gloves in their fight and presented ostensible video evidence. Fury defeated Wilder in dominant fashion back in February, taking the heavyweight crown after previously tying against the fighter.

Wilder also attributed Fury’s victory to a “crap-in-a-bucket” referee and a trainer who was “disloyal” for throwing in the towel midway through the seventh round.

Warning, the following tweet contains NSFW language.

The meat of Wilder’s accusation:

I saw in the first fight when Ricky Hatton was pulling down your gloves to put your fists in the improper position. Y’all tried the same method the second time, but this time, you scratched flesh out of my ears which caused my ears to bleed. It’s impossible for

Running shoes and running injuries: mythbusting and a proposal for two new paradigms: ‘preferred movement path’ and ‘comfort filter’

Introduction

In the past 100 years, running shoe designs have experienced dramatic changes. The running shoes in 1912 were shoes that would be considered dress shoes today (figure 1). The current running shoes are technical and engineering masterpieces and have descriptions such as support, cushioning, light weight, minimalist and barefoot. There is no question that a 2015 runner would not use the 1912 ‘running shoes’ for running activities. The question is, however, whether or not the shoes in 2015 are associated with fewer running-related injuries than the running shoes used in 1970 or in 1912. The more general question is whether or not running shoes (or sport shoes in general) influence the running injury rates at all.

College Football Odds Week 9: Over-Under and Picks Against the Spread for Top 25 | Bleacher Report

0 of 3

    Jay LaPrete/Associated Press

    The Ohio State Buckeyes are in the middle of a remarkable run against Top 25 teams from the Big Ten.

    According to ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg, the Buckeyes are on a 16-game winning streak against ranked conference opponents. Ryan Day’s side can extend that run to 17 on Saturday with a win over the Penn State Nittany Lions, whom it has beat three years in a row and in seven of the teams’ past eight meetings.

    Even though the Buckeyes dominated those matchups, they are less than a two-touchdown favorite for their trip to Beaver Stadium. If Penn State were at full strength, the spread may have been lower, but it is dealing with absences at running back and reeling after an opening loss to the Indiana Hoosiers.

    The other four teams in the top five of the AP poll are larger favorites than

Willie Roaf joined several of his former 1990 Independence Bowl teammates at Joe Aillet Stadium Saturday, commemorating their tie with Maryland in the program’s first bowl game.

To make the day more special, the Louisiana Tech, College Football and Pro Football Hall of Famer decided to donate his Hall of Fame and NFL Hall of Fame jacket to the Charles Wyly museum on campus in Ruston.

“It was important and the timing was good because it’s been 30 years since that big game and I was a redshirt sophomore on that team,” Roaf told The News-Star prior to the Bulldogs hosting UAB Saturday. “I felt like in honor of my teammates and Fred Dean passing, I’ve been talking to his wife Pam.

Mounties rise up, stop Wildcats

ROGERS — Marion Slater wasn’t about to let this one slip away, and the Rogers High linebacker made sure of it.

With a seven-point lead and needing a defensive stop, Slater and the Mounties came up with two huge plays in the final minutes to help Rogers claim a 49-42 win against Springdale Har-Ber on Friday in Whitey Smith Stadium.

In an offensive shootout that went back-and-forth from the opening kickoff, the deciding play came down to the Rogers defense. With Har-Ber in possession of the ball near midfield and facing third down and six, Slater crashed through to tackle Har-Ber’s Hudson Brewer for a 1-yard loss.

With the game hanging in the balance, Har-Ber went for it on fourth down and seven, and Slater came up with another big play, this time with help from Damon Voak and slung Wildcats’ quarterback Drue McClendon down for a 7-yard loss with

Tigers name AJ Hinch as new manager, just days after his suspension ends

Former Houston Astros manager AJ Hinch’s season-long suspension stemming from Houston’s sign-stealing scandal concluded when the World Series ended on Tuesday night. It didn’t take much time for him to reach an agreement on a new job, either.

Hinch, 46, talked with the Detroit Tigers on Thursday about their managerial vacancy and was announced as their new manager on Friday, the team announced. He received a multi-year contract. Detroit’s interest in Hinch didn’t come as a surprise; general manager Al Avila acknowledged that Hinch and former Red Sox skipper Alex Cora, ousted as part of the sign-stealing scandal’s aftermath, were “on my list” in early October.

“I’d like to thank (owner) Chris Ilitch and Al Avila for giving me a chance and the opportunity to get back in the dugout to lead this historic ballclub,” Hinch said in a statement. “The last year was the most difficult of my

AC Milan, Arsenal win; Tottenham loses in Europa League

Published 4:59 p.m. ET Oct. 29, 2020 | Updated 6:37 p.m. ET Oct. 29, 2020

AC Milan cruised past Sparta Prague 3-0 for its second straight win in the Europa League on Thursday, while Tottenham fell to a surprising 1-0 loss at newcomer Antwerp.

Milan easily overcame a missed penalty by Zlatan Ibrahimović to remain unbeaten in 23 games in all competitions, dating back to least season.

Tottenham saw its 10-match unbeaten run end, despite having Gareth Bale in the starting lineup for a second straight time in the competition.

Fellow Premier League clubs captured their second straight win. Leicester beat AEK Athens 2-1 away while Arsenal scored three goals in a four-minute span either side of halftime in a 3-0 victory over Irish club Dundalk.

A minute of silence was held ahead of the game between Nice and Hapoel Beer Sheva to honor the three victims of a
