first_img“Not worried at all [about taking a big punch]. It’s what I get paid to do, train hard and fight hard.” Feeling ready now for feb22 we going on a trip on our favourite rocket  shipA post shared by Tyson Fury (@gypsyking101) on Feb 13, 2020 at 9:23pm PSTFury stepped back from boxing in 2019 to venture into professional wrestling. He defeated Braun Strowman in his WWE debut, at the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia, by count-out, and the 31-year-old believes the training regime he went through ahead of his wrestling bow has given him the upper hand against Wilder.”[The training for wrestling] has helped massively for sure,” Fury said. “There’s a massive difference, almost unbelievable, between training for something like that and a world title fight. It’s more about agility and speed, definitely.” Former unified world champion Fury thought he had done enough to win on points at Staples Center, though two knockdowns from Wilder in the ninth and 12th rounds, respectively, ultimately proved costly.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearThere has been no love lost between the fighters in the lead-up to Saturday’s rematch, but Fury is convinced he has the upper hand, adding that he does not fear taking another punch of the caliber that Wilder landed in the final round in December 2018.”He’s on the back foot already, he’s running scared,” Fury told Omnisport. WILDER-FURY 2: Odds, prediction, trends, prop bets for fight”It was good [to take the punch]. It’s nice to take a big right hand like that now and again. It’s what I train for and what I get paid for. It was lovely to do some work for the pay.”It was a lapse in concentration. I feel fantastic and the training camp has gone well, perfectly. It won’t happen again.

MURDERS OF BUNCRANA BOYS IN OMAGH MASSACRE WAS ‘SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS’

first_imgMurdered by the Real IRA: James BarkerA LAWYER representing the families of the Omagh bomb massacre victims has described the outrage as the slaughter of innocents.He was speaking as two men were found culpable in a civil case brought by relatives. Colm Murphy and Seamus Daly were successfully sued for a second time in the civil retrial after a judge said the evidence against them was overwhelming.Three schoolboys from Co Donegal were among those killed when Real IRA terrorists planted a bomb in the centre of the Tyrone town in August 1998.Buncrana children Oran Doherty, who was just 8 and Sean McLaughlin (12) and James Barker (12) died in the terrorist outrage.Spanish student Fernando Blasco Baselga (12) and Rocio Abad Ramos, a group leader who were staying with local families in Buncrana at the time, also died.Solicitor for the families Matthew Jury said the Omagh bombers had not furthered any cause.“It was a massacre of the innocent that left a scar on families, their community and their country that has not healed,” he said.“By bringing this civil action, their victims showed that they will not be intimidated and that justice will be done.”In his judgement, Mr Justice Gillen said the case against them, which was primarily based on mobile phone evidence, was “overwhelming”.He added: “The barrier of time has not served to disguise the enormity of this crime, the wickedness of its perpetrators and the grief of those who must bear its consequences,” he said.“Even 15 years on, nothing can dilute the pulsing horror of what happened.”Lord Brennan QC, representing the families, said the bereaved relatives were determined that the damages would be paid.“Enforcement will be pursued with vigour here and in other relevant jurisdiction,” he said.Michael Gallagher, whose son Aidan was killed in the bombing, called on Gardai and the PSNI to once again pursue criminal proceedings against the men.He said: “We have held people to account for Omagh but we will now write to the chief constable and the Garda Commissioner to see if there is any way people could be brought before the criminal courts.“That’s really what we wanted in the first place and sadly it was left up to the families to get a result and to hold people to account for this crime.”He said it was “scandalous” that so much money, estimated to be “tens of millions” had been spent to bring justice in the case.MURDERS OF BUNCRANA BOYS IN OMAGH MASSACRE WAS ‘SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS’ was last modified: March 21st, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranaJames BarkerMURDERS OF BUNCRANA BOYS IN OMAGH MASSACRE WAS ‘SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS’Omagh bombOran DohertySean McLaughlinlast_img read more
