Adversion

In this episode, Betty learns moral lessons totally unjustified by actual events; Jughead channels Humphrey Bogart to rather amusing effect; Archie continues to be an absolute bore; and Veronica’s outfits are by far the MVP of the episode.

No one promised it would be easy...

Hey friends! Something I pride myself in is my scrappiness, my ability to maximize money in my life for the least amount of energy put in. It does help that I’m smart, a great communicator, and have lots of privilege, HOWEVER, I want to share some of the apps/services that I use to cut corners! […]

“It’s going well, I’m enjoying myself at the moment. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs, especially at the start of this season, what with being at Port Vale and not playing, but as soon as I’ve come to Telford it feels like it’s going right again.”

WWE’s first PPV on the road to WrestleMANia sees us step into the chamber twice tonight. One of them should be excellent, one will be historic… possibly not so good. I’ll let you work out which is which. But hey maybe we will be shocked. I’ve a feeling this show is going to be odd, […]

Cain Velasquez’s return to the Octagon ended in the worst way possible when he was stopped by Francis Ngannou after just 26 seconds in the headline bout at UFC Fight Night in Phoenix. The former two-time heavyweight champion, who had not fought since 2016, was caught by two-right hands before his left knee gave way. Velasquez was stopped in 26 seconds While his defeat was swift, it is by no means the quickest in UFC history. Here are a select few which have ended before the seats were filled. B.J. Penn vs Caol Uno – UFC 34 | 11 seconds – 2001 After catching the eye with his performances in the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship, Penn was signed to the UFC in 2001 and quickly made his mark, with two first-round knockouts over Joey Gilbert and Din Thomas. His third fight of that year ended with the quickest win of his legendary career. Uno ran at Penn and launched a high kick which was easily avoided, before Penn landed an uppercut and a succession of right-hands as his opponent lay motionless against the cage. Gray Maynard vs Joe Veres – UFC Fight Night 11 | 9 seconds – 2007 An All-American wrestler, Maynard was not particularly known for his stand up offence, but that quickly changed when he took on Veres in Las Vegas. Faking a takedown attempt, Veres dropped his hands and as a result, took a left hook on the chin, before his grounded body was hit with a three-punch combination. Don Frye vs Thomas Ramirez – UFC 8 | 8 seconds – 1996 Having tried his hand at both kickboxing and boxing, Frye soon made the move into MMA after helping to train his friend Dan Sevren. Frye was one of eight competitors participating in the open weight tournament. While this would never be allowed today, UFC was in its infancy meaning this was considered the norm. A chiselled 206 pounds, Moustache enthusiast Frye dropped the out-of-shape 410lb Thomas Ramirez and advanced to the semi-finals. James Irvin vs Houston Alexander – UFC Fight Night 13 | 8 seconds – 2008 Alexander had made quite the impact upon entering the UFC. Consecutive first-round finishes over Keith Jardine and Alessio Sakara totalled a combined 109 seconds. In his third fight with the company, he was matched against Irvin in April 2008. The pair touched gloves and a lazy jab from Alexander was met with a thunderous superman punch from Irvin, dropping Alexander, before two brutal right hands meant an immediate stoppage. James Irvin's 8 second KO of the night against Houston Alexander! (UFC Fight Night 13) pic.twitter.com/qqxF9U2NE9 — MMAxGiFS (@MMAxGiFS) September 21, 2014 Todd Duffee vs Tim Hague – UFC 102 | 7 seconds – 2009 If you want to make a statement on your debut in the biggest martial arts organisation in the world, you do it like this. Duffee was 5-0 before making his first appearance in the UFC and quickly made it six in brutal fashion. The 251-pound heavyweight crushed Hague with a left jab and then proceeded to hammer fist him, before knocking him out with a left hand to leave the Canadian unconscious. OTD in 2009, Todd Duffee recorded a seven second knockout of Tim Hague (RIP). It remains as the fastest knockout in UFC heavyweight history. pic.twitter.com/jl2yXWaUPy — Sherdog by Mandatory (@sherdogdotcom) August 28, 2017

TYSON FURY will return to the ring on US soil in May but any fight with Deontay Wilder is all-but dead in the water. Confirmation of the Briton’s £80million co-promotional deal with Top Rank, ESPN, BT Sport and Frank Warren conflicts with the American’s Showtime agreement. Fury is bound for a May return Negotiating future fights with the WBC heavyweight champion and Anthony Joshua, who is tied to DAZN will now be problematic. Any hope of a repeat of Fury and Wilder’s memorable 12-round classic last December are now distant, with a string of lower-rung opponents now expected for the Gypsy King. Should an American opponent be favoured, then fellow-southpaw and former IBF champion Charles Martin – knocked out by Anthony Joshua in April 2016 – could be a candidate. Unbeaten Oscar Rivas would present a more formidable challenge however with the Colombian unbeaten in 26 fights. His last bout against Bryant Jennings was also promoted by Top Rank and shown by ESPN. Dominic Breazeale and Fres Oquendo represent more unlikely opponents, while Andy Ruiz is another contender. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN BOXING” posts_category=”17″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] Fury has penned a multi-year deal with ESPN and Top Rank Frank Warren said of Fury’s next fight, which is likely to be state-side: “I spoke to [Top Rank chief] Bob Arum last night, we’re trying to sort the day out. “He wants to fight the latest in May. “We will work on that and hopefully within the next week we’ll have the date nailed down. “There is a lot of work to do. “This is a secret within the industry. “I am sure it is a big shock for Deontay Wilder and his team that this has happened.” Fury and Wilder had been in talks over a rematch – but those hopes are dead for now Fury added: “Frank says I will have three fights this year, hopefully I will. Last year I had three fights in six months. “I am looking forward to keeping busy.” The 30-year-old, who fought Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta prior to his draw with Wilder in Los Angeles, is keen to kick-start his deal with the American broadcaster. Despite fights with the heavyweight division’s big boys now being tougher to clinch, Fury will not lose sleep over any failed talks. He said: “You can only fight who is available and most of the time these big fights happen. Sometime they never happen. Joshua beat Breazeale with ease in 2016 Bob Arum will now play a major role in shaping Fury’s career “Am I going to cry about a fight that never happened? No, not interested. “I can expect all these big fights to happen with Top Rank, Frank and ESPN.  Those three are going to control boxing as far as I am concerned. “My expectations are colossal but the deliverance I’ll tell you this time next year.” Having evaded the biggest names in the division, attention now turns to who Fury could duel with in the spring.
