No clear venue for Joshua, Ruiz Jr., rematch

first_img(BBC) Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr., looks set to take place in New York in November or Cardiff in December. Joshua, 29, lost his IBF, WBA and WBO world titles to Ruiz in New York on 1 June and invoked his contractual right to a rematch.Dates have been fixed at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on 14 December or a return to Madison Square Garden on 29 November.A west coast city in the US has also made a late offer to stage the contest. Two other unnamed countries have also bid for the fight.Joshua’s team were keen to finalise a date for the bout last week but the offers from new countries have delayed them in confirming Cardiff or New York.The financial packages put forward in the late bids were lucrative enough to merit discussions, though there is concern the countries in question do not hold a substantial track record in staging high-profile boxing events. Cardiff is the only UK option because the Principality Stadium can offer a roof along with a large capacity during a British winter but Joshua is said to be keen on a return to Madison Square Garden, where his US debut was wrecked by Ruiz in one of heavyweight boxing’s biggest shocks.American Ruiz – who fights under a Mexican flag as a result of his heritage – has talked up fighting in Los Angeles or Mexico.The 29-year-old’s comments and delays in confirming the rematch has led to speculation negotiations have stalled or that the champion was contemplating trying to avoid Joshua. But Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has said Ruiz would face legal proceedings if he were to pursue another path.last_img read more

LNP Refutes Media Report

first_imgThe Liberia National Police (LNP) says it is taken aback over reports in the media that anti-robbery officers were involved with the shooting of a man identified as Prince Toe during an armed robbery raid in Central Monrovia.The LNP said in a statement released in Monrovia on Friday, that the media must be professional in its reportage as the LNP remains committed in providing security to the people of Liberia.The LNP said speculations that the victim was shot by one of its officers who used an AK 47 Assault Rifle is “unfounded, misleading and lacks substance,” as the LNP’s arsenal contains no AK Rifle, least to say assigned to police officers.The LNP said victim Toe, who is currently undergoing medical treatment at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Sinkor, was shot after a suspected armed gang who were retreating, allegedly opened fire with live bullets on LNP anti robbery officers who were on patrol.The LNP said following the shooting incident that night, it was noticed that one of the alleged robbers was shot by a retreating robber from the front at which time the victim was identified as Prince Toe.Afterward, the LNP said the victim was arrested alongside one other suspected armed robber, identified as James Logan.The police said before the August 26, incident, the victim was already among ten hard-core criminals wanted by the LNP for his alleged involvement in series of deadly armed attacks on the home of a Liberian businessman and other residents in Sinkor and Congo Town respectively.The LNP has meanwhile called on residents of Monrovia and its environs to furnish the police with needed information that will lead to the arrest of suspected criminals within their communities.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Diaspora disappointed with APNU/AFC governance

first_img— presents “resolution” to President GrangerAn overseas group of Guyanese in Brooklyn and Queens, New York, USA, have formulated a list of things they hope the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Administration can do to somewhat salvage what could soon be a broken relationship with Guyanese in the Diaspora.The group headed by Dr Asquith Rose, met in Queens, New York, back in September to formulate this resolution addressed to President Granger, and which was subsequently adopted at a meeting held by the group in Brooklyn on October 8.According to the letter written to the President – which was seen by Guyana Times – the resolution is in response to the manner in which Guyanese in the New York Diaspora felt “they are being treated by you and the Government of Guyana which they help to elect to office on May 11, 2015.They also felt that the promises made by you to establish a Department in the Diaspora, among others has not been fulfilled and that since the election, you have not even attempted to meet with them despite your several visits to New York.” The letter stated that the President met with an elected few upper middle class Guyanese who were nowhere around during the elections to raise funds to help the APNU/AFC get elected.While the members of the groups bear no malice against you or anyone else, they felt disrespected and disappointed by your actions. Many have opted to no longer align or associate with the coalition,” Rose penned in a letter on behalf of the group. The letter said that members of the Diaspora have on several occasions raised funds to help elect the Government to office, and that the President had deemed the Diaspora the 11th Region of Guyana, “but he has not fulfilled his promise to appoint a Member of Parliament from the Diaspora or establish a Department in the Diaspora in order to engage its members in the decision-making process. He has not appointed anyone from the Diaspora to positions in Guyana or as diplomat or consultant.”It said, “The President visited New York on several occasions, but has not held a Town Hall style meeting or has not met with the grassroots Guyanese who are supporters of the Government.”According to Dr Rose, the President instead on his most recent visit to New York in September 2016, met with an elite group of Guyanese who have done very little in mobilising support for the Government before and after the 2015 General Elections.The overseas-based group said it is critically important for the President to understand that his actions could have consequences for his Government, and that it was therefore, important upon him and members of Cabinet to establish communication with the grassroots groups in the Diaspora and not a handful of elite Guyanese or close friends.“The President should make himself available to address the Afro-and Indo-Guyanese groups in the Diaspora that have helped to elect him to office,” the group said.The groups, according to Dr Rose, are still waiting and arecalling for the promised “Diaspora Department” to address the concerns and needs of its members, and to facilitate and validate their contributions to the country’s development; to recognise members of the Diaspora as Guyanese who are interested in the development of Guyana and not as foreigners or obstructionists to the development of the country.last_img read more
