It was eight years ago when I first sat down to have a chat with Anthony Joshua. He was 20 years old and three weeks earlier he had won the ABA heavyweight title. Three-title heavyweight king Anthony Joshua is one of the most popular British boxers of the modern era – in and out of the ring Sitting on the ring apron at Finchley Amateur Boxing Club’s gym Josh, then a shy young man, told me had turned down an immediate £50,000 offer to turn pro. That was an absolute fortune to a kid from a Watford council estate. But he was determined to go on to win the gold medal at the London Olympics two years later. Everyone at the Finchley club were mightily impressed at the way Joshua reacted to the huge amount of money that had been dangled in front of him. They knew it could so easily have gone to his head. I shall never forget John Oliver, one of AJ’s amateur coaches telling me that afternoon: “None of us intend to get carried away. But I’m excited because I feel we may have discovered someone who could turn out to be exceptional.” Watford-born Anthony Joshua has held the IBF title since 2016, the WBA from 2017 and the WBO title since March 2018 [bc_video video_id=”5979545702001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Wladimir Klitschko has been texting Anthony Joshua for a rematch “] How prophetic have those words turned out to be. Joshua was crowned Olympic champion and went on to hold three of the four major world heavyweight belts. British fans have fallen in love with AJ the way they did with Frank Bruno and i don’t believe it’s because he gives them the exciting knockout victories they crave. His unassuming lack of arrogance, the dignified way he conducts himself and his refusal to indulge in the kind of crass trash talking that seems to be so fashionable among the top fighters these days has endeared him to the British public. Anthony Joshua produced a stunning finish to KO Alexander Povetkin in his latest world title defence in September In his last five stadium fights at Wembley and in Cardiff his live audience has totalled more than 400,000. Not even the all-timed greats like Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano and Muhammad Ali could boast of those kind of figures. Now all his loyal supporters want to know is when will AJ face his biggest rivals Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.

AWA Championship Wrestling, Louisville, KY This was taped on Sept. 18, 1988 but I prefer to list the TV airing date if possible, and I found another obsessive site that wasn’t Cagematch that helped me place when this actually aired. The internet is a wonderful tool in addition to being a frightening tracking device.

A PRIMARY school worker who sent pictures of his penis to an online paedophile group decoy was snared outside the school he worked at. Evan Tomney was working as a play assistant at an after school club at Blackhall Primary School in Edinburgh when he made contact with an online account he believed to be owned by a teenager called Ben Holmes. Evan Tomney pleaded guilty to sending pics of his penis to a paedo hunters group’s decoy We told in May how Tomney had to be harboured inside the school after being ambushed by the group. Tomney chatted to the ‘boy’ on the dating app Skout before making filthy comments about anal sex and the asking if the lad had measured his privates. The conversation then switched to What’s App where 21-year-old Tomney sent the boy several images of his penis. But the online account had been set up by a member of the paedo hunters group Groom Resisters Scotland. The self-styled “child protection enforcement group” then confronted Tomney about his conduct during a sting operation in May this year. Police were called in to deal with the situation and the online group handed over all the messages that had been sent to the decoy by the pervert. The perv was snared outside Blackhall Primary School where he works Tomney pleaded guilty to intentionally sending written communication and sexual images to a person he believed to be 14-year-old boy Ben Holmes for the purposes of obtaining sexual gratification at his home address between May 6 and 13 this year when he appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last month. He returned to court for sentencing today where Sheriff Frank Crowe said: “Fortunately no young person was affected by this and you were effectively sucked into the trap.” Sheriff Crowe placed Tomney on the sex offenders register for 18 months and also placed him on a supervision order for the same length of time. He will also have to declare all internet devices to the authorities and allow them to inspect the devices on request. Remorseless sex beast tells vigilantes ‘it doesn’t bother him’ he’s paedophile as he’s confronted over sick texts to ’12-year-old girl’ Previously the court heard a member of Groom Resisters Scotland had set up the online Skout account in May this year and soon began receiving messages from Tomney. Ms Cook said the pair exchanged innocent messages at first before Tomney began introducing sexual language. Tomney, of Edinburgh, was said to have told the boy “you’re cute” and was told he was just 14-years-old when he asked his age. The perv told the boy he had been caught engaging in a sexual act with another boy while he was at school before asking if the lad “had measured” his penis. Tomney then sent a message saying “I think about sex all the time – I am always horny” before asking the boy to “trade pictures” of their privates. The fiscal then said Tomney began sending images of his penis to the boy. Ms Cook said: “The accused sent a picture with his naked penis protruding from his boxer shorts. He then sent a second picture of his erect penis.” [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”76″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Tomney was then confronted outside the Edinburgh school where he worked by members of the online group with the confrontation live streamed on the group’s Facebook page. The court was also told Tomney was immediately sacked from his position with the after school group and that his mother who also worked there had also “lost her employment”. Defence solicitor Joe Boyd said his client had studied child care at Edinburgh College but had not completed the course. Mr Boyd said: “His recollection of events are extremely scant, and when he tries to think about his actions it is not something he can coherently explain to me. He added Tomney had a partner up until his arrest and that he had become “quite inclusive” and he “developed anxiety in social situations”. “He thinks that as a result of taking to the internet that it can become addictive to someone like him”, he said.
