WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury has vowed to quit in his corner if his fight with Anthony Joshua goes past three rounds.
Tyson Fury and Joshua are still in negotiations for an undisputed title clash in the summer but Fury in an early morning rant in his Last Vegas Hotel room on April 29 said he is so confident of an early victory against Joshua.
Fury promised the fight will not make it into the fourth round, one way or another.
Fury said: “While I’m on a rant, I may as well call out one more person; a big useless dosser, not a real fighting man, hype job, bodybuild, crossfit, big, ugly s***house.
“And that’s Anthony Joshua. AJ, if you’re out there let’s make this fight happen you big dosser, you big s***house, bum dosser.
“I’m going to smash your face in too, and there’s not one thing you can do about it. Prove me wrong sucker, prove me wrong.
“I’m No1, numero uno.”
Fury then added: “Just been thinking, another message for AJ; AJ, if you go past three rounds with me, I’ll quit in the corner.
“Because that’s how confident I am of taking you cold out in the first two, three rounds. Out, like a light switch.”
Joshua, 31, and Fury, 32, are signed to fight each other in a mouth watering multi-million dollar fight this summer but negotiations are not yet complete .

Dr.Dre Ordered To Pay $500,000 To Estranged Wife Nicole Young’s Divorce Lawyers
Hip-hop mogul, Dr. Dre has been ordered to pay half a million dollars to his estranged wife Nicole Young’s divorce lawyers.
Nicole Young, 51, had asked Los Angeles Judge Michael Powell to force her wealthy, soon-to-be-ex husband to pay her $2 million per month in spousal support, plus $5 million for her attorney fees.
During a hearing on Tuesday, April 27, the Superior Court Judge ordered Dre to pay her lawyers $500,000 within 10 days, while a decision on the spousal support issue has been delayed until another hearing on July 8.
In a written ruling, the judge said: “Pending the next hearing dates on this matter, the Court grants only $500,000 in attorney’s fees to petitioner’s (Nicole’s) counsel … Fees are to be paid to petitioner’s counsel, no later than May 7.”
The 56-year-old star, who was recently declared legally single agreed to continue paying for Nicole’s monthly expenses and will also continue to pay the mortgage on the Malibu home the 51-year-old lives in.
However, the producer has insisted he won’t pay for her security costs.
In January, Dre agreed to pay Nicole $2 million in spousal support, which was to cover the period up until April 14.
Nicole had been asking for more than $2 million a month but Dre’s lawyer previously told the court her client has been voluntarily paying all her expenses since they split.
Dre had been paying Nicole $293,000 a month in support.
But she is asking the court to order him to pay her almost $2 million a month, plus the $5 million in fees to her attorneys – Samantha Spector and Lisa Meyer – that the judge ruled on Tuesday.
Nicole and Dre have two children together, Truice and Truly, while Dre has six children by five different women
Young Japanese Woman Arrested For Poisoning Her Wealthy 77-Year-Old Husband
A Japanese woman was arrested on Wednesday, April 28, for allegedly killing her millionaire husband.
Saki Sudo, 25, was charged for the alleged poisoning of 77-year-old Kosuke Nozaki in 2018, three months into their marriage, according to the Japan Times.
Sudo allegedly injected the real estate titan with a poison, according to the article. She reportedly had dinner with Nozaki before his death, and police said she researched the deadly posion found in his system on the internet.
Nozaki had became notorious for publishing the 2016 book, “Don Juan of Kishu: The Man Who Gave ¥3 Billion to 4,000 Beautiful Women”.
His suspicious death had attracted attention for years.
Sudo stood to inherit a portion of his assets, the Japan Times said.
In a 2018 book, Nozaki wrote that he met a woman, believed to be Sudo, when she helped him after he fell down at a Tokyo airport, according to the report.
Sudo reportedly told her family that she was moving from Sapporo to work at her friend’s real estate business, but did not reveal she was married.
Three months into their marriage, Nozaki was found dead.
Saki Sudo, was arrested Wednesday, April 28, for allegedly poisoning Kosuke Nozaki three years ago.
Sudo isn’t the first woman accused of a crime against Nozaki. Back in 2016, Nozaki’s then-girlfriend, who was also in her 20s, was arrested for stealing more than a half million dollars from his home, according to the report.
Actor Noel Clarke Accused Of Groping, Harassment And Bullying By 20 Women
Award-winning actor, Noel Clarke has been accused of verbal abuse, bullying and sexual harassment by 20 women.
The actor, producer, screenwriter and director won a Bafta awardon April 10 and this moved numerous women to break their silence.
They allege Clarke is a serial abuser of women, using his power in the industry to prey on and harass female colleagues, and sometimes bully those who fall out of favour.
The Guardian said it has spoken to 20women, all of whom knew Clarke in a professional capacity. They variously accuse him of sexual harassment, unwanted touching or groping, sexually inappropriate behaviour and comments on set, professional misconduct, taking and sharing sexually explicit pictures and videos without consent, and bullying between 2004 and 2019.
Clarke has denied these allegations.
Clarke said in a statement: “In a 20-year career, I have put inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of my work and never had a complaint made against me. If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise. I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing and intend to defend myself against these false allegations.”
Through his lawyers, Clarke categorically denied every allegation that the Guardian put to him, except one.
He accepted that he once made inappropriate comments about one woman, for which he later apologised, but denied the rest of her complaints.
In a 29-page letter, his lawyers said he categorically denies all of the other allegations, from all 20 women, in some cases questioning their credibility. They deny their client is a serial sexual predator.
After the Guardian article was published, Bafta released a statement that reads: “In light of the Guardian’s piece, which for Bafta provided for the first time detailed accounts outlining serious allegations regarding Noel Clarke’s conduct, we have immediately suspended the award and Noel Clarke’s membership of Bafta until further notice.”

Record Label boss MCnells has raised so much eyebrows in the entertainment industry with the new strategy put in place by his management and team. This is followed by the way music artist are welcomed and treated with high regards in his label.
Our correspondent met the label boss at one of his successful homecoming party in the Owerri which was graced by men that matters in the industry, entertainers, influencers, showbiz owners, bloggers, TV Owners as so on were present at the event.
The simplicity of the new record boss made him stand out among his peers who are affluently rich and “big” based on their outlook and business interests across the country. If you were at the homecoming party of the record boss, you would definitely go “gaga” because the atmosphere was lit as there was unlimited “jolly moment” for everyone. Stage performances by music artists, comedian, dancers kept everyone on their feet, those (the big guys) who flexed with bundles of cash spray really made the stage to be kept on fire.
It was actually not easy to get access to the Label boss on that day, we waited for every slightest opportunity to send a signal to his team. Since he is a man of the people especially entertainers across the Southern region of the country, everyone wanted to have a moment. Finally, a signal sent to by our correspondent paid off as an appointment was scheduled with his manager. The schedule for the interview and chat was to hold after the event but due to the frenzy, it was moved to another day.
Lagos was chosen as the destination for the kick off project of the label because it is the heart of music entertainment in Africa. Most of the in-house signed artist and producers were on ground already making trends across the internet, Satellite TV, Blogs and social media platforms. The strategies put in place by the new label team was paying off already as top music celebrity were already part of their project. The sense of becoming one of the top record label in a diverse entertainment industry was already fast approaching as more media partners and agents are getting attached to set more goals for Mcnells label boss.

It was quite surprising as the call came directly from the boss himself. “Na Just meet and Drink O” as he said but “Everywhere Nice” just come around lets talk – sorry i kept you waiting at Owerri. Ahh soo sharp? we rushed to the meet and drink destination and had a wonderful chit chat. Below is interview transcript between TryNaija and the Label boss:

So how did you start the Record Journey – We heard you started from South Africa – How true is that?
The music journey was not quite easy, I started the label in South Africa which was a huge success. The reason why the Journey started in South Africa was because I lived in South Africa. There was was huge support from Nationals over there, Nigerian artist who stayed there, visiting artist who can over for tour, business partners and friends made it possible.

The Ogun State Police Command has barred the Oduduwa nation rally expected to hold May 1 in the state.
The Ogun Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, made this known in a press statement on Thursday.
“Consequently, the rally slated for Abeokuta on 1st May, 2021, is viewed by the Command as one too many in the State, and therefore not approved.
“Parents and guardians are hereby advised to warn their children and wards not to be involved in any of such gathering that may expose them to violence and consequently bring them on a collision course with the security agencies,” the statement read in part.
Nollywood actor Yomi Fabiyi who has been in the news lately for allegedly supporting a colleague, Baba Ijesha, who was arrested over alleged defilement of a minor, an adopted daughter of comedienne Princess, has caused an uproar on social media.
The Nation had reported the actor fired back at singer Davido and media personality Toke Makinwa after they called him out over his comment on actor Baba Ijesha’s alleged molestation of a minor.
Davido referred to Fabiyi as a “bitch” while Toke Makinwa described him as a “disgrace” for asking for the CCTV footage of the minor being reportedly molested by popular actor Baba Ijesha.
The actor took to his social media page to post quite a suggestive photo.
He posted a photo of himself fully kitted in a boxing outfit with his fist stretched out like one who is ready to punch.
The photo was accompanied with a punch emoji as its caption.
France said on Thursday it had started putting in measures to limit some Lebanese officials from entering the country on the grounds that they were blocking efforts to find a solution to the political and economic crisis.
France has spearheaded international efforts to rescue Lebanon from its deepest crisis since the 1975-1990 civil war, but after eight months has failed so far to persuade squabbling politicians to adopt a reform roadmap or form a new government to unlock international aid.
With the European Union, Paris has been working on creating a sanctions regime for Lebanon that could ultimately see asset freezes and travel bans.
However, that is likely to take time. As part of efforts to raise pressure on key Lebanese actors, France intends to stop issuing visas to certain officials, diplomats have said.
“On a national basis, we have started to implement restrictive measures in terms of access to French territory against personalities involved in the current political blockage, or involved in corruption,” Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in remarks alongside his Maltese counterpart.
Le Drian gave no names and it was not clear if the actual measures were already in place.
“It’s not just words in the air,” said a French diplomat. They (Lebanese officials) can reassure themselves that it’s not just threats.”
Two diplomats said a list of names had been put together and people were being made aware. The French foreign ministry did not respond to requests for comment.
As many senior Lebanese politicians have homes, bank accounts and investments in the EU and France, and send their children to universities there, a withdrawal of that access could be a lever to focus minds.
“We reserve the right to adopt additional measures against all those who hinder the way out of the crisis and we will do so in coordination with our international partners,” Le Drian added.
India’s severe medical oxygen supply crisis is expected to ease by mid-May, a top industry executive told Reuters, with output rising by 25% and transport infrastructure ready to cope with a surge in demand caused by a dramatic rise in coronavirus cases.
Dozens of hospitals in cities such as New Delhi and Mumbai have run short of the gas this month, sending relatives of patients scrambling for oxygen cylinders, sometimes in vain. read more
Medical oxygen consumption in India has shot up more than eight-fold from usual levels to about 7,200 tonnes per day this month, said Moloy Banerjee of Linde Plc (LIN.N), the country’s biggest producer.
“This is what is causing the crisis because no one was prepared for it, particularly the steep curve up,” Banerjee, who heads the company’s South Asia gas business, told Reuters on Thursday.
Linde – whose two affiliates in the country are Linde India (LIND.NS) and Praxair India – and other suppliers are ramping up production to a total of more than 9,000 tonnes per day by the middle of next month, he said.
A logistics crisis impeding the speedy movement of oxygen from surplus regions in eastern India to hard-hit northern and western areas would also be resolved in the coming weeks as more distribution assets are deployed, Banerjee said.
“My expectation is that by the middle of May we will definitely have the transport infrastructure in place that allows us to service this demand across the country,” he said.
Banerjee said India was importing around 100 cryogenic containers to transport large quantities of liquid medical oxygen, with Linde providing 60 of those. Some are being flown in by Indian Air Force aircraft.
Many of these containers will be placed on dedicated trains that would cut across the country, each carrying between 80-160 tonnes of liquid oxygen and delivering to multiple cities.
The company is also looking to double the number of oxygen cylinders in its distribution network to at least 10,000, which would improve supply to rural areas with weak infrastructure.
“We are trying to create a hub-and-spoke type of system so that we make a lot of liquid oxygen available at the local area, from where the local dealers can pick it up,” Banerjee said.
India’s total COVID-19 cases passed 18 million on Thursday after another world record number of daily infections.
