BREAKING: Floyd Mayweather Backs Out Of Fight With 20-Year-Old Kickboxer, Says He Was 'Blindsided'

American professional boxer, Floyd Mayweather, has dramatically appears to have backed out of a planned New Year’s Eve fight with 20-year-old Japanese kickboxer, Tenshin Nasukawa. 

Less than three days after he appeared at a Tokyo press conference announcing the bout, claiming he was “blindsided” by the promoter regarding the nature and magnitude of the event

The 41-year-old had initially confirmed the bout for 31st of December 2018 during a press conference which took place on Sunday night in Tokyo. It was also understood that he revealed that he signed with Japanese mixed martial arts promotions company RIZIN Fighting Federation.

The five-division boxing champion said in an Instagram post on Wednesday that he had agreed to a three-round exhibition “purely for entertainment purposes with no intentions of being represented as an official fight card” and was “completely derailed by the new direction this event was going”.

Read his post on IG below;

He wrote:
Now that I am back on U.S. soil after a long and disappointing trip to Tokyo, I now have the time to address you, my fans and the media in regard to the upcoming event on December 31st that was recently announced. First and foremost, I want it to be clear that I, Floyd Mayweather, never agreed to an official bout with Tenshin Nasukawa. In fact (with all due respect) I have never heard of him until this recent trip to Japan. Ultimately, I was asked to participate in a 9 minute exhibition of 3 rounds with an opponent selected by the "Rizen Fighting Federation".  
What I was originally informed of by Brent Johnson of "One Entertainment" was that this was to be an exhibition put on for a small group of wealthy spectators for a very large fee. This exhibition was previously arranged as a "Special Bout" purely for entertainment purposes with no intentions of being represented as an official fight card nor televised worldwide. Once I arrived to the press conference, my team and I were completely derailed by the new direction this event was going and we should have put a stop to it immediately.  
I want to sincerely apologize to my fans for the very misleading information that was announced during this press conference and I can assure you that I too was completely blindsided by the arrangements that were being made without my consent nor approval.
For the sake of the several fans and attendees that flew in from all parts of the world to attend this past press conference, I was hesitant to create a huge disturbance by combating what was being said and for that I am truly sorry.
I am a retired boxer that earns an unprecedented amount of money, globally, for appearances, speaking engagements and occasional small exhibitions.

Unbelievable As Manchester United Defeated Juventus In Turin (Photos/Video)

Manchester United defeated Italian champions, Juventus, in Turin with two goals in the final five minutes earned themselves a good chance of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages.

Former Manchester United player, Cristiano Ronaldo, had put the hosts ahead with an outstanding volley.

With five minutes to go, Spanish international midfielder, Juan Mata, curled in a brilliant free-kick to leveled the game before Ashley Young’s set-piece was bundled into his own net by Juventus player, Leonardo Bonucci.

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho was angrily confronted by Leonardo Bonucci when the Portuguese taunted the Juventus fans after Manchester United’s epic comeback in Turin.



Before things could escalate, Mourinho and Bonucci were separated as Ashley Young stepped in to keep the Juventus star away from his manager. Mourinho was then ushered off the pitch to avoid any more flash-points.

Husband who found his wife having sex with his brother shot both dead after he woke in the night and heard “noises” coming from his spare room.

Oleg Kirkunov told police his brother Evgeny had joined him and his wife Olga Sukhanova for a meal and drinks at their home in the Russian city of Ufa.

Evgeny, 65, was invited to stay the night and went to bed in the couple’s spare room. But 54-year-old Oleg woke in the night after hearing noises coming from the spare room.

Realizing his wife was not in bed beside him, he went to investigate and found his brother having sex with his wife. Graphic footage recorded by police shows 44-year-old Olga lying dead on the bed, with a huge head wound and the body of Evgeny can be seen in the floor in a pool of blood.

In the video a gun can also be seen on the floor, as the man explains to police, who is who and confesses to killing the pair. “He entered the room and saw his wife making love to his brother,” reported Ufa1 news agency.

The unemployed man a keen hunter grabbed his Saiga gun and shot his wife in the head as she lay in the bed, say police. Then he gunned down his brother who had dressed and was trying to escape. The cuckolded husband then immediately called police and confessed to the killings – and the reason he shot them.

The Russian Investigative Committee confirmed that “the criminal has been detained”. A statement said: “Charges have been brought against him. “He is accused of double murder.“Investigators will appeal to court to seek his detention for two months.”



Bizarrely his actions have seen him praised as a “hero” on social media.

The Russian Investigative Committee confirmed that "the criminal has been detained". Charges have been brought against him. He is accused of double murder.

Meanwhile, Oleg has been praised as a "hero" on social media.

One commenter said: "Well done, brother! I would have done just the same."

Another wrote: "Cheer up, you will go to jail, this is true, but you have done the absolutely right thing."

"Don’t regret it, don’t mind police and other bureaucrats, you are the hero," another comment reads.

Kirkunov had a license for the Saiga rifle which is seen lying on the floor of his home after the double shooting.

Victim Evgeny, a power station engineer, was married to a woman called Faina, and is believed to have two adult daughters and grandchildren.

Khloe Kardashian Reportedly Still 'Hurt And Angry' With Tristan Thompson

Reality star Khloe Kardashian, 34, is still dealing with ''a lot of hurt and anger'' over allegations Tristan Thompson cheated on her, according to a reliable source.

The reality star  who has six-month-old daughter True with the NBA player - continues to have a really ''tough time'' dealing with the cheating scandal.

Despite this, a source told People: ''Khloe wants so badly for True to have a happy family.

''She wants to do what's best for her daughter, and to her that means being with Tristan.''

Khloe learned of the cheating allegations from her younger sister Kylie Jenner.

Reflecting on their awkward conversation, Kylie recently said: ''No one had the courage to tell Khloe, because we knew she was days away from giving birth.

''We didn't want to stress her out, but we knew that it was the right thing to do. So, I'm the one that told Khloe.''

Although Khloe's relationship with Tristan has appeared to be on the rocks ever since the cheating allegations emerged, a source recently suggested that she's determined to ''stick by'' the NBA player until ''she can't take it anymore''.

The insider explained: ''People are underestimating how much she's willing to take for love.

''If Khloe is in love with someone or even connected to them in some way or another, she will stay until she physically and emotionally can't take it anymore.''

Meanwhile, Khloe recently admitted it had been ''very hard'' to relive Tristan's alleged infidelity on 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'.

A Twitter user posted: ''I feel so bad for @khloekardashian had to go through what Tristan did while filming #KUWTK. If I'm not wrong, next episode will be insane. You're so strong to put that personal issue as part of the show knowing millions of ppl will watch it. I wouldn't be able to do it. (sic)''

And Khloe replied: ''Sadly, it will. I signed up to show the for the good and the bad, right? The bad is very hard to relive but it's life. (sic)''

Mourinho Desires Stay For In-Form Anthony Martial

In the midst of contract negotiations, Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho hopes Anthony Martial who recently rejected a new contract offer, will commit his future to Manchester United.

According to reports, the Frenchman's sale would be used as collateral to sign Ivan Perisic before the start of the season, his recent turn of form has prompted a change of heart from the Manager.

In the lead-up to Saturday's trip to face AFC Bournemouth, the Portuguese manager also expressed his desire for the 22-year-old to stay at Old Trafford.

"I don't belong to the discussions of contracts," Mourinho said. "I'm not participating in these kinds of discussions. Obviously I hope they will agree.

"Obviously I would like him to stay. I know the club wants him very much to stay. Hopefully he is going to stay."

Scoring four goals in his past three Premier League matches, Martial has become a solitary spark for an otherwise grim Manchester United in possession.

With Nemanja Matic commenting on Martial's confidence impacting performance earlier in the week, Mourinho believes he is making the leap to realized potential.

"One thing is that he's a talented player that everybody knows he is. Everybody knows since he was in Monaco that he is a talented player," Mourinho said.

"Another thing is a talented player with consistency and understanding what a football match is in the globality. When you reach that level, or when you are almost reaching that level, is when you become a top player.

"One thing is a top talent, another is a top player. He is now much closer to being a top player."

The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Lafiya Dole has decimated a Boko Haram Terrorists’ (BHT) hideout and neutralized several terrorists at Bogum in Northern Borno State.

This was confirmed by Ibikunle Daramola, Air Commodore, and Director of Public Relations and Information, in a statement on Monday.

According to him, “the attack was carried out on Sunday, 14 October 2018, after intelligence reports indicated significant BHT activities within the settlement.

Killings: PDP Declares Seven Days Of Mourning

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared a seven-day mourning for the victims of the gruesome killings of innocent Nigerians by bandits in Plateau state and other parts of the country.

The party directs that its flags at all its offices and formation at all levels across the country be flown at half-mast during the period in honour of the victims. 

In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan, PDP urges the people of Plateau state to exercise their rights as global citizens, work with other public-spirited Nigerians and groups and take President Muhammadu Buhari and his government to the International Criminal Court (ICC) at the Hague for acting helpless in the face of continuous mass killings in our country. 

The PDP expressed the belief that the life of every Nigerian is sacred, saying: “All Nigerians must be protected whether they are Birom, Basange, Igbira, Tiv, Idoma, Hausa, Igbo, Fulani, Gbagyi, Yoruba or from any other tribe whatsoever.

The fundamental duty of government all over the world is the protection of lives and Nigerians can no longer continue to fold their hands while compatriots are being daily hacked down by marauders'.

Handshake Begins Historic:Trump And Kim Jong-un Hold Meetings In Singapore

History was made as the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump meet-face-to-face at the summit in Singapore.


It's the first ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and North Korean leader.

Donald Trump said he expected to have a "terrific relationship" with Kim Jong-un after the two leaders shook hands ahead of a historic summit in Singapore on Tuesday.

In the first ever meeting between sitting leaders from both countries, the pair greeted each other warmly at a luxury hotel on Sentosa Island, before heading in for one-to-one talks about denuclearisation. 

The US president and North Korean leader approached each other while walking along outdoor corridors lined with white colonnades, with Mr Trump coming from the right and Mr Kim from the left.

Mr Trump, who is 6 foot 3 inches, towered over Kim, who is around 5 foot 7 inches and close to 40 years younger than the US president.

Mr Trump then directed Mr Kim to walk down a hallway, where they briefly spoke.

"Nice to meet you Mister President," Mr Kim said as he sat alongside Mr Trump, beaming broadly as the US president gave him a thumbs up.

With cameras of the world's press trained on them, the two leaders built an initial atmosphere of friendship.

"I feel really great. We’re going to have a great discussion and will be tremendously successful. It's my honour and we will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt," Mr Trump said.

"It was not easy to get here....There were obstacles but we overcame them to be here," Mr Kim replied.

After about 40 minutes of talks, the leaders emerged, with Mr Trump predicting  they will solve the "big problem" on the Korean peninsula.

Mr Trump and Mr Kim smiled and waved to the cameras before heading to wider bilateral talks with aides.  Asked how the meeting had gone, Mr Trump said: "Very good. Very, very good. Excellent relationship."

Body Odour: Causes, Preventions And Treatments


What is body odour?

Body odour is the unpleasant smell produced by bacteria on the skin that break down the acids in your sweat.

Causes

Most patients with body odour have a problem with bacterial overgrowth on their skin. These bacteria produce odor by breaking down the skin's sebum (oil). People who don't bathe regularly are particularly at risk because folds of skin in the groin and armpits are the moist, warm, favored places for bacterial growth.

Body odour is most likely to occur in the following places:

feet, groin, armpits, genitals, belly button, anus, behind the ears, the rest of the skin, to a lesser extent, pubic hair and other hair

Ways to prevent body odour

1) Baking soda; 

Some people we say, how can baking soda prevent body odour? The truth is, to get instantly rid of body odor, baking soda can come in handy.

It can absorb all the moisture from the skin and take away the smell as well. Baking soda can kill the odor-causing bacteria and prevent excessive sweating and odor.  Since it is alkaline in nature, it will lower down the pH level of sweating parts to counteract the acids in sweat.

Simply take a little of baking soda into your hands while taking shower and apply it onto underarms and scrub it for few minutes and then wash it off normally to clear the baking soda and the body odor.

2) Consume odour friendly food;

Some food we consume may be adding to the excessive sweating. Fiber-loaded food helps you detoxify the body by maintaining proper digestion.

Consuming salad which comprises of raw vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, spinach, peppers, can naturally cleanse your insides. Adding citrus fruits to your meals can also detoxify your body by flushing out the toxins that may be causing body odor.

3) Always wash your feet;

After a long day at work or after working out for an hour or two, our feet get sweaty, leaving them smelling deadly and stinky feet are no fun. Sometimes we tend to neglect our feet in our skincare regime.

Washing your feet thoroughly after removing your shoes is necessary. Warm water is better at killing bacteria than cold water. Make sure you dry your feet thoroughly afterward, including in between your toes.

4) Use antibacterial soap;

Using a good antibacterial soap can help you get rid of any body odor and make you feel fresh.
The best way is to use a loofah with it to scrub away all the bacteria and dead skin cells which will make you squeaky clean and will keep bad body odour at bay.

Treatments

1) Avoid spicy foods: Curry, garlic, and other spicy foods have the potential to make some people's sweat more pungent. Some experts believe a diet high in red meat may also raise the risk of developing more rapid body odor.

2) Clothing: Natural fibers allow your skin to breathe, resulting in better evaporation of sweat. Natural-made fibers include wool, silk or cotton.

If sweat from working out is your No. 1 cause of body odor, wash your workout clothes often. Sweaty gym clothes are a bacteria-breeding ground.

3) Surgery: When self-care and medicinal measures are not effective at treating severe body odor, a doctor can perform a surgical procedure called endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) that destroys the sweating-controlling nerves below the skin of the armpits.

4) Aluminum chloride: This substance is usually the main active ingredient in antiperspirants. If your body does not respond to the home remedies mentioned above, talk to a pharmacist or your doctor about a suitable product containing aluminum chloride. Follow the instructions given to you carefully.

5) Apply apple cider vinegar: Acid, like the kind found in apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, inhibits the growth of bacteria—including the kind that makes your sweat smell gross. Just be cautious, and use it sparingly: "While apple cider vinegar and lemon juice may help reduce levels of odour-causing bacteria on the skin, they may cause skin irritation," says Zeichner.

“May 29 Remains Inauguration Day For Presidents” – Senate

The Nigerian Senate on Thursday resolved to take President Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration a step further by asking that the official result of the June 12,1993 presidential election be announced.

On Thursday, the Senate while largely supporting the president’s announcement, however, insisted May 29 will continue to be the hand-over date for presidents of Nigeria.

The lawmakers after a lengthy deliberation on the president’s announcement agreed that an alteration of the handover date will require a constitutional amendment.

Since 1999 when the country returned to civil rule, Nigeria has celebrated May 29 as Democracy Day. The date, after every four years, also doubles as the day for the inauguration of newly elected presidents and many state governors.

First to raise the issue on Thursday was Lanre Tejuosho (Ogun-APC) who commended Mr Buhari for the announcements while urging him to also reconcile with the Legislature.

Having come under order 43 of the Senate standing order, the matter was not open for discussion.

“For once, I want to thank the President of Nigeria. I want to say he has done well. This is one time that the President has given a thought to what (Moshood) Abiola and his family went through to fight for this democracy that we enjoy today.

“Going further, there are issues to be addressed so that we can be confident that this is not a Greek gift.”

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, said the gesture comes with legal issues which the president must address.

“They are now saying June 12 is now Democracy Day, proposing that in 2019, the president will now be sworn in on the 12th of June. This is illegally impossible.

“A president shall vacate his office at the expiration of a period of four years he took the oath of office.

“The implication is that 29th of May remains the date the president will be inaugurated and take oath of office. If they are moving from May 29 to June 12, it means we have to amend this constitution.

“Otherwise, we will be extending tenure of a president beyond what the constitution contemplates. We have to advise the president properly so that we won’t enter a jam next year. We cannot extend it to June 12 without extending the Constitution.”

‘Nigeria Will Reach World Cup Semi-Finals’- Naby Keita

Naby Keita feels the 2018 World Cup will be a tough outing for African representatives but singled out Nigeria ‘to lead by example’.

Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Senegal and the Super Eagles shoulder the continent’s dream to win the elusive diadem.

And the midfielder who is on Liverpool radar believes African teams have learnt from past flaws – and this time around will make the four.

“It will be a tough tournament for African teams but the good thing is that they have learnt from past mistakes,” Keita told Goal.

“I know Nigeria will lead by example and we will definitely have at least two teams in the semis of the competition.

“However, it is unfortunate that Guinea will not be part of the African teams at the games in Russia.”

Guinea failed in their attempt to qualify for their maiden World Cup appearance having finished behind Tunisia, DR Congo and Libya in Group A of Caf’s Third Round qualification.

Only Cameroon, Senegal and Ghana have made significant impacts on the world stage – reaching the quarter-final in the 1990, 2002 and 2010 editions.

The Reason Why Serena Williams Has Withdrawn From French Open

Serena Williams announced her shock withdrawal from the French Open on Monday , before her fourth-round match with Maria Sharapova.

She explained in a news conference at Roland Garros in Paris that her pectoral muscle injury caused her to withdraw.

The 36-year-old tennis star said, “Unfortunately I’m having some issues with my pectoral muscle. Right now I can’t actually serve so it’s kind of hard to play.

“It’s very difficult, I love playing Maria. I’ve made every sacrifice I could. I made a commitment to myself and my team that if I wasn’t at least 60% I wouldn’t play. I’ve never felt this in my life. It’s so painful.

“I’m beyond disappointed. I gave up so much from time with my daughter & time with my family all for this moment. So it’s really difficult to be in this situation.”

“I thought [doubles] was a perfect opportunity to see how I was going. I tried a lot of different tapings and support. It didn’t get a lot better.”

Sharapova, the champion in Paris in 2012 and 2014, goes on to play a first quarter-final at the Slams since losing to Williams at the same stage at the 2016 Australian Open.

It was in Melbourne that Sharapova tested positive for meldonium after which she served a 15-month doping ban.

She will face either 2016 champion Garbine Muguruza or Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine for a semi-final place.
