Anthony Joshua sizes up £1.1m diamond

Britain’s unified WBA, IBF & WBO heavyweight champion of the world is known to have made tens of millions in his career so far, but still marvelled at the price of the gem. In a social media video, Joshua noted how he allowed his 16-year-old cousin to experience “what £1.1 million feels like.” After speaking to the shop assistant who informed him about the item he was wearing, AJ said: “This right here is £1.1 million…” He then turned back to the assistant and joked: “I’ll take five of these please.” Joshua’s next fight is set to be against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev, which details are now being ironed out regarding the date and venue. Promoter Eddie Hearn previously told talkSPORT: “It’s been difficult because Kubrat Pulev doesn’t really wanna box in the UK. “He’s a mandatory challenger, he’s saying: ‘Oh, we can get more money here, more money there.’ “Joshua’s basically put a line through that and said: ‘I don’t care, my next fight is in the UK.’ “That fight will take place in June, the frontrunner right now is Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. “We’ve still got a bit of work to do but you can expect an announcement in the next two weeks.”Tags: Anthony JoshuatalkSPORTlast_img read more

Syracuse men’s soccer ties No. 8 Clemson in national semifinal rematch

first_img Published on October 21, 2016 at 10:47 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Just like in the College Cup semifinal, neither Syracuse nor Clemson mustered a goal in 110 minutes. This time, there were no penalty kicks to determine which team advanced to the national championship.Chances were few and far between on Friday night as both sides managed just two shots on goal, but a late acrobatic save by Syracuse goalkeeper Hendrik Hilpert preserved his eighth shutout of the season in No. 6 Syracuse’s (10-3-2, 3-2-2 Atlantic Coast) scoreless draw with No. 8 Clemson (9-2-4, 3-1-3) at Historic Riggs Field in Clemson, South Carolina.“No penalties this year, which was probably good for everybody,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “These are fun games to be involved in. It’s a little bit helter-skelter. I think there probably could’ve been a little bit more quality in the 110 minutes.”SU and the Tigers are the top two teams in the ACC in terms of fouls committed, and both surpassed their season averages by committing 16 and 19, respectively. Syracuse’s Mo Adams, who has started every game thus far and scored his first-career goal against Hartford on Tuesday, will miss SU’s regular season finale due to suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.The game was scrappy, and despite Syracuse dominating possession it wasn’t able to generate the chances it has on such a consistent basis. The Orange’s lone shot on goal in regulation was a soft header by Johannes Pieles that fell gently into the hands of Clemson goalkeeper Ximo Miralles.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the second overtime period, Hilpert came well off his line to clear a ball out of bounds, which he drilled right into the Clemson bench. He sprinted back to his net and on the next sequence made a diving save with his right hand on a near-post strike from Michael Melvin.“Collectively we defended extremely well,” McIntyre said. “To come on the road to a place like this and keep a clean sheet is terrific.”Syracuse’s draw kept it behind four other teams in the ACC standings with only the top four getting a bye in the upcoming conference tournament.The only team remaining on the Orange’s regular season schedule is No. 2 Wake Forest. Against the other four top-15 teams in the ACC the Orange has played, Syracuse has one goal combined.“It’s so difficult to get points in this league,” McIntyre said. “…I know that we have goals in this team.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
