Tyson Fury: I drank four pints of beer before Wilder’s fight

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Joshua: Tyson Fury won’t distract me Tyson Fury takes on Otto Wallin in Las Vegas this Saturday in what should be a fairly academic affair before he moves onto his rematch with Deontay Wilder in February 2020. Fury and Wilder fought to a draw in December 2018 in what was Fury’s first major matchup since he’d won the world titles from Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. The Gypsy King dropped a boatload of weight prior to his boxing comeback and he was still trying to regain his strength when he went the distance with the Bronze Bomber – and he’s only the second man ever to do so. Still, prior to his big comeback fight, the 31-year-old thought it was a good idea to have four pints the night before. Speaking to media out in Vegas ahead of the Wallin showdown, Seconds Out posted a video where Fury details his mindset walking into the WBC heavyweight title clash. “I drink beer while I’m in a training camp. I had four pints of beer before I fought Wilder, the night before. It didn’t do me any harm, did it? Ben, am I lying or am I not? “[Trainer Ben Davidson confirms] There you go.” Davidson then explained how he walked in on Fury having the beers and said ‘what the f*ck is this’ only for Fury to reply ‘they’re non-alcoholic!’ Two days later, Davidson found out they were indeed alcoholic pints. “I’m a man who is 30-years-old, I’ve been a professional for 11 years, I’m married with five children,” Fury said. “If I want some f*cking beers, I’ll have some. “If your body craves something, give it to it. Why deprive yourself of something because it’s fight week? Fighters of the past used to drink a bottle of whiskey before getting in the ring.”Tags: Deontay WilderLas VegasOtto WallinTyson FuryWladimir Klitschkolast_img read more

They spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL has not announced the additions.The rule is named after the late Dan Rooney, who owned the Pittsburgh Steelers, and was adopted in 2003. It has had some impact, but in the recent spate of coach hiring, few have gone to minority candidates.

Stewart’s maiden first class ton keeps Pride at bay

first_img(CMC) – EMMANUEL Stewart’s maiden first-class half-century propped up Windward Islands Volcanoes and kept Barbados Pride at bay, on the second day of their Regional Four-Day Championship match here yesterday.Replying to Pride’s 233 all out, Volcanoes reached the close at Arnos Vale Stadium on 230 for seven, to trail by just three runs on first innings.They were 129 for five at one stage but the 20-year-old Stewart struck exactly 50 not out to bolster the innings and ensure the margins in the contest remained close.He was helped by Keron Cottoy who made 38 while veteran opener Devon Smith (33), debutant Desron Maloney (30) and former captain and Test batsman Kirk Edwards (27) all made healthy contributions.Part-time seamer Jonathan Carter (2-16), Test left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican (2-26) and off-spinner Ashley Nurse (2-54) all led the visitors’ attack.Volcanoes got an excellent start when Smith and Maloney put on 76 for the first wicket as Pride struggled to get the breakthrough.Left-hander Smith, last season’s leading scorer, faced 101 balls and counted three fours while Maloney struck four fours in a 78-ball innings.Maloney’s dismissal, however, triggered a slide and Volcanoes lost three wickets for 17 runs to find themselves on 93 for three.Edwards was fluent in striking three fours in a 45-ball knock, and posted 29 for the fourth wicket with Alick Athanaze (9), to revive the innings.But Volcanoes stumbled again, however, as both batsmen perished in the space of 16 balls with seven runs added, to leave the innings on 129 for five.Stewart then stepped up to anchor a critical 63-run, sixth-wicket stand with Cottoy, which hauled Volcanoes back into contention.All told, Stewart has so far faced 164 balls and struck three fours and two sixes while Cottoy faced 92 balls and counted four fours.When Pride hit back in the final session to claim Cottoy and Shane Shillingford, Stewart once again stood firm to see his side safely to the close in a 33-run, eighth-wicket stand with Sherman Lewis (eight not out).last_img read more

Viterbi helps IBM create a new computing robot

first_imgJeopardy! pitted the man versus the machine Monday night, as Watson, a computing system that uses Question Answering technology, was quicker than its human opponents in 24 out of 30 “Double Jeopardy” questions.Mr. Roboto · Steve Canepa, IBM’s general manager, hosted a watch party Tuesday to view the launch of Watson on Jeopardy!. Students were impressed by the system’s language skills. – Robin Laird | Daily Trojan Members of the Viterbi School of Engineering’s Information Sciences Institute are among a group of scientists from eight universities who are working to advance Watson, which was designed by IBM to understand human language and language complexities and to provide answers to factual questions.Watson, named after IBM founder Thomas J. Watson, sorts through its extensive database and tries to provide precise answers quickly. Watson is even able to understand different attributes of human language such as rhyming, alliteration, slang, riddles and puns.Steve Canepa, IBM’s general manager, hosted a watch party at University Gateway on Tuesday for students to watch Watson’s Jeopardy! debut.“It takes Watson an average of three seconds to answer a question,” said Jennifer Chu-Carroll, a research staff member and manager at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. “And it looks through a database of over 1 million books.”Chu-Carroll has worked on many parts of the Watson system, focusing primarily on developing the system’s ability to quickly narrow down the information in its repertoire to what is relevant to the question being asked. Watson finds about 100 sentences that it thinks could contain the answer and ranks the possibilities in order of confidence.“If Watson is 90 percent sure, it’ll buzz its answer in. If it’s 40 percent sure, it probably won’t,” Chu-Carroll said.Students who attended the watch party were intrigued by Watson’s grasp of the English language.“When you consider all the nuances of the human language, it’s impressive that Watson understands so much of it,” said Peter Perez, a graduate student studying engineering management.Members of Viterbi’s ISI first became involved with IBM in 2001, but only as part of a government-funded research program.Inspired by the QA technology that many universities were developing in their labs, IBM scientists designed Watson over the course of about seven years and then invited other scientists from universities such as USC, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Texas to collaborate on the project. USC has had QA technology for about 10 years, but it was separate from the Watson project.The ISI team specifically contributed to Watson’s parsing ability, the process of analyzing a text, and its inference skills, the ability to reason and draw conclusions.IBM hopes Watson will revolutionize many industries and even assist in research.“There is so much information out there. It is beyond anyone’s ability to go through all of it,” Chu-Carroll said. “So one thing we have tried to do is bridge the gap between the human user and the vast amount of information available.”Eduard Hovy, director of the ISI Human Language Technology group and research associate professor of computer science at USC, said Watson could not only be used to greatly improve the confidence of existing search engines, but could also be used for troubleshooting, business intelligence and medical assistance.“Medical information is growing so quickly, no doctor can stay up-to-date,” Hovy said.Advanced QA technology could be used to sort through medical information and give diagnoses based on patient symptoms. The doctor would then evaluate the information provided and make the ultimate judgment call.Watson’s ability to answer questions as well as a human is currently being tested in the first human versus computer competition on Jeopardy! which will air for the last time today.“We felt as though our system performs well enough, that it would put up a respectable fight whether it wins or loses,” Chu-Carroll said.Watson is a big step forward in language technology. It’s a precursor for the way computers will be designed and how people will be able to communicate with them in the future, according to Chu-Carroll.“As researchers, we’ve known that [technology like Watson] has been possible for a long time, but it’s great to see it finally being realized,” Hovy said.Students are excited about the possibilities for future technology after watching Watson on Jeopardy!.“I think it’s great to see this advancement in technology,” said Sinead Hinson, a junior majoring in public relations. “Who knows what will happen with the next generation.”last_img read more

SU offered him last summer.The PSA Cardinals (New York) point guard ran an offense that also featured two fellow Orange targets, forward Mohamed Bamba and wing Brandon Randolph. Green had 40 more assists in total league play than the second-highest player. His 21 points and six assists helped the Cardinals overcome an 18-point second-half deficit in the tournament’s semifinal on Saturday night.“He’s tough. Really, really tough,” Carl Arrigale, his coach at Neumann-Goretti (Pennsylvania) High School, said. “To be that size and survive, you have to shoot. And he can. He’s not afraid of anything.” considered the four-star guard the 51st best prospect in March, but after winning the state class AAA championship and averaging 10.5 assists per game during the EYBL season, he’s up to five stars and No. 20. He’s jumped at least 15 spots on and as well.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThere is a 71 percent chance Green chooses Duke, 247Sports’ Crystal Ball predicts.Green likes Syracuse and has a good relationship with SU assistant coach Gerry McNamara, Arrigale said. Arrigale has played a fast, small-ball lineup with man defense since Green’s been at Neumann-Goretti, but he doesn’t think Green would have trouble transitioning to zone or struggle with size because he’s consistently matched up with players 4 and 5 inches taller than him in high school.Green has started for the Philadelphia basketball powerhouse since his sophomore year. He hit two buzzer-beating game-winners that season, Arrigale said, one in front of a jeering student section after losing the lead against future University of Nevada Las Vegas standout Derrick Jones. The other came against a player that a ranking site listed ahead of Green for best point guard in the city.“He plays with a little chip on his shoulder, in a good way,” Arrigale said. “He’s thinking about who’s ahead of him on whatever ranking. … His size doesn’t worry me. He’s not much different than Gerry (McNamara). Those two see eye to eye.“And when’s the last time (Syracuse) cut the nets down?” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+ If he commits, he will be Syracuse’s second scholarship guard under 6 feet tall since at least the 1992-93 season. Five-foot-10 James Thues played the 2000-01 and 2001-02 seasons at Syracuse before transferring to Detroit. Thues didn’t shoot much, but he played the role of pickpocket, ranking sixth nationally with 101 steals during the 01-02 season.Putting Green at the top of SU’s 2-3 zone defense would be a departure from the norm for SU head coach Jim Boeheim, who traditionally recruits tall, rangy guards with long wingspans. Syracuse’s last four point guards have been 6-foot-6 Michael Carter-Williams, 6-foot-3 Tyler Ennis and Kaleb Joseph and 6-foot-7 Michael Gbinije.However, using smaller guards is not unprecedented. 2007 and 2008 point man Jonny Flynn stood 6 foot.“Quade’s not afraid of whoever’s in front of him, or the moment,” Arrigale said. “He doesn’t think anybody’s better than him, 5-5 or 6-5.”last_img read more

first_imgFORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – Former Colorado State and NFL standout Joey Porter did more than return to college and become an undergraduate student assistant coach when he went back to Fort Collins to finish his degree.The Coloradoan reports ( ) Porter turned himself in Wednesday for a failure to appear warrant dating back to 1999. He was freed on a $1,100 cash bond.Porter was ticketed for speeding and driving while his license was under restraint in May 1999. Fort Collins police opened a warrant for his arrest after he missed a final court date.
