Chael Sonnen confirmed that Mike Tyson used banned substances both in the past and present

According to Sonnen, this is a clear contradiction when a martial artist who is concerned with his health admits to using drugs, but denies he uses substances that improve his performance.

Whether at the moment, Mike Tyson’s use of banned substances is no longer so important when the legend has long gone from professional titles, but this issue will be mentioned before the match between him. and Roy Jones Jr.

Because according to previous information, the match will take place under the supervision of the California Sports Commission (CSAC) – the agency responsible for preventing the use of banned substances. And even if it’s a performance match, it’s hard for CSAC to turn a blind eye to this if it’s true.

Deontay Wilder still maintains the No. 1 contender position at WBC

Despite experiencing a defeat by KO/TKO earlier this year, Deontay Wilder remains the No. 1 contender of heavyweight WBC.

In early 2020, Deontay Wilder lost the heavy WBC championship belt to Tyson Fury after 7 completely overwhelmed matches. Then, WBC had to see temporary heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte defeated by Alexander Povetkin in the fifth half. In less than 6 months, the heavy WBC had 2 changes in heavyweight.

However, contrary to Dillian Whyte, who fell to 5th place after the last defeat, Deontay Wilder remains the number one contender. This is good news for fans of heavyweight boxing.

Despite the defeat at the beginning of this year, Deontay Wilder still holds the No. 1 position in the WBC rankings

Because, when Dillian Whyte fails, this means that Tyson Fury is not obliged to defend the title against Dillian Whyte anymore and is likely to rematch soon with Deontay Wilder. The WBC only promised Whyte a title if he won, but promised nothing more to Alexander Povetkin.

According to originally planned, Deontay Wilder will have the opportunity to revenge against Tyson Fury on December 19 this year. This is also said to be a prerequisite match for one of the current 3 heavyweight pillars (Joshua, Fury, Wilder) to stand together.

Even Tyson Fury once frankly vowed to rematch with Deontay Wilder at any cost to prove he was the best. Hopefully, the rematch between the two heavyweight stars will quickly be signed.

Tyson Fury is only interested in the competition of Deontay Wilder

The only thing that mattered to the defending WBC champion was his third rematch with Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder and nothing else.

Many people want “Gypsy King” to face other opponents such as defending champion Anthony Joshua, but Fury wants to settle his grudge with Wilder. It seems that after two games the result of one draw and one win is not enough for Tyson Fury. Fury wanted a third match to end the fight between the two boxers.

World boxing may need a villain instead of decent boxers (Part 1)

Just play well, dedicate yourself and keep a decent lifestyle, with few scandals, athletes will be loved. However, those who bring change to the whole game are often the villains.

From around the 1960s, when Muhammad Ali chose his style of cocky arrogance, to the period when Mike Tyson identified himself as “the worst in the world”, the story has not stopped. Until now, Conor McGregor is also following in the footsteps of the seniors to become a “bastard” in the media.

In sports and football, there are famous and arrogant names, but many fans like Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovich, or basketball with Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal. These people are the ones who have contributed to creating attraction for the subjects they participate in.

Heroes in the dark

The price of becoming a villain is not cheap, because when you choose to play the villain, it means you choose to attract attention in an extreme way. And before people get to know and love it, in the beginning, everyone will hate the arrogant.

To get the title match with Liston, young boxer Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) had to speak up cursing and killing his senior within a few months. Mr. trash talk is so much that the public has turned from interesting feelings to headaches with the mouth of the young boxer. However, Muhammad Ali at that time stopped only when he got the title match he wanted.

Muhammad Ali is also a talkative, single-worded, and extremely arrogant man. During that time, everyone hated Ali, no one wanted to hear a brat bragging about himself.

Honestly, Muhammad Ali’s evil play strategy or any other puncher is a reckless one. Because if Muhammad Ali was beaten to the ground in the match against Liston, he would never have the chance to compete with anyone, and he would not be a world legend.
