Loading… Foreman says Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) is fighting at such a high level right now that it’s going to be difficult for anyone in the heavyweight division to beat him right now, and that includes IBF/WBA/WBO champion Joshua (23-1, 21 KOs). Fury, 31, is at the top of his game right now with his recent victory over former WBC champion Deontay Wilder last February, and he might have too much boxing skills for the lumbering 6’6″ Joshua to deal with. The promoters for Fury and Joshua would like to set up a unification fight between them in 2020 if they could, but it doesn’t look like a possibility of that happened this year.Advertisement Two-time former heavyweight world champion, George Foreman, has said he doesn’t see how Anthony Joshua is going to beat Tyson Fury when the time comes for those two to fight. read also:Joshua, Fury’s fight still a dream – Warren Fury has a contractual rematch with Wilder 42-1-1, 41 KOs), and Joshua needs to defend against his IBF mandatory Kubrat Pulev (28-1, 14 KOs) next. “It’s strange. They’re not just flukes. They’re actually great fighters. Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, it’s like something from outer space. They’re not supposed to be from the United Kingdom. They’re not supposed to be from there. “Lennox Lewis, who is also from Europe, never got the credit that he as supposed to. If you name the top 10 fighters of all time, you get Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano. You can put Lewis anywhere in there, and he’s one of the greatest heavyweights of all time,” said Foreman. Ruiz Jr. shocked the world with his win over Joshua last year, but then he slacked off and lost his titles in their rematch. Given how badly Ruiz was beaten by Joshua, he’s going to have to prove himself worthy of being included in the top four in the division.

LOS ANGELES — It looks like baseball’s unwritten rules are in for a rewrite.The latest flareup in the sport’s culture wars came Monday night when Fernando Tatis Jr. took a healthy cut on a 3-and-0 pitch with the bases loaded and his team leading by seven runs in the eighth inning. The San Diego Padres’ 21-year-old star hit a grand slam.The Texas Rangers took offense, throwing behind the back of the next hitter, Manny Machado, and Rangers manager Chris Woodward bemoaned the disdain for baseball’s archaic etiquette.“Norms are being challenged on a daily basis,” said Woodward, who spent three seasons as a coach on Dodgers manager Dave Roberts’ staff. “I don’t think we liked it as a group.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Ruiz said his fever lasted for three days but he was not hospitalized. He lost weight because he couldn’t taste anything.ALSOLeft-hander Alex Wood was scheduled to throw a three-inning simulated game Tuesday afternoon. Wood made just one start before going on the Injured List with shoulder inflammation. He is expected to throw a bullpen session Thursday or Friday and then would likely throw a four-inning simulated game before being considered for the rotation. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start MLB players – as a group – did like it. Support for Tatis poured out on social media.“Don’t like it,” Cardinals right-hander Jack Flaherty tweeted. “Don’t fall behind 3-0. Pretty simple.”Former AL MVP Josh Donaldson cited one-time teammate David Price.“I’ve never understood this,” Donaldson tweeted. “Why is it the hitters fault that the pitcher fell behind 3-0? As one of my favorite teammates ever David Price would say, ‘Don’t like it, pitch better.’”Never shy about sharing his opinion, Reds right-hander Trevor Bauer directed his tweet at Tatis. “1) Keep swinging 3-0 if you want to, no matter what the game situation is,” he tweeted.“2) Keep hitting homers, no matter what the situation is“3) Keep bringing energy and flash to baseball and making it fun“4) The only thing you did wrong was apologize. Stop that.”Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said there were “a lot of layers” to the discussion and admitted he was brought up in baseball under the old-school mentality. But he has evolved, coming over to the “Let the kids play” side of the debate.“I think that I came up in a day and age when unwritten rules were sort of abided to and were kind of universally accepted,” Roberts said. “I think things are changing – some good, some not so good.“As I looked into last night and heard a lot of back and forth, you see both sides. There’s a lot of gray. Teams do score five runs a night. We did it twice (in an inning) last night. It changes the dynamic of how you use your ‘pen if you don’t add on, tack on runs.“So I see it both ways. I think for me personally I’ve flipped a little bit more about just keep playing to win the game. Teams that are trailing aren’t going to stop trying to score runs. … I might have changed the way I see things from last night’s incident.”Roberts said he did notice that Machado didn’t complain about being thrown at and another Padres veteran, Eric Hosmer, suggested the issue would be addressed internally with Tatis.But talent like Tatis should be allowed to play freely, Roberts suggested.“I think the unwritten rules have changed, should change,” he said. “Each passing day, we’ve got to continue to break some of those rules. And that’s a good thing.”COVID CASECatcher Keibert Ruiz became the fourth Dodgers player to acknowledge he contracted a case of COVID-19, delaying his arrival at Summer Camp last month. Kenley Jansen, A.J. Pollock and Scott Alexander have all said they suffered from the illness. Tony Gonsolin said he tested positive for the coronavirus but never became ill.Ruiz had the now-familiar range of symptoms – high fever, headache and a lost sense of taste.“It was a tough time,” said Ruiz who made his major-league debut Sunday. “It was like seven days I was sick, didn’t feel good. But thank God I’m good now.”Related Articles Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
