Jones’ advisor, Richard Schaefer, tells ESPN: “The facts are still developing, we really don’t know yet the full story so I’m not going to make any comment until I have a chance to talk to Jon and until we see how this plays out.”

Chopping wood is big time. Creates explosiveness. Builds up the grip strength, forearms, back, legs and core. Crazy because old timers didnt call it strength & conditioning. They just did it.

Tyson Fury on Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk: "Of course I'm going to watch. Do I want [AJ] to win? Definitely. It doesn't make much sense in me beating Usyk up. I'd much prefer to beat Joshua up, it's a bigger fight… If Usyk does win then he will cost us a few quid."

I asked Reynoso if he thought Valdez should be allowed to fight. "When [the WBC] say they'll allow the fight to go forward, me as the trainer, I need to go forward with the fight. ... If I was his manager, maybe things would have been different than they were today.”
