“I’m addicted to boxing. I don’t think that it’s difficult for me to retire, but right now I don’t want to. It’s something I really enjoy and that I’m still capable of doing.
“It’s becoming rarer to see fights like the one with Kovalev and Ward. Where both are at their best . It is increasingly rare that those types of fights happen. In the case of an old fighter like myself, I want to see myself with opponents who require a real effort from me. If I don’t have a challenge, I don’t feel good. I don’t want to mislead my fans.”
Back in August, Jones (64-9, 46 KOs) suffered a bicep tear during his unanimous decision win over journeyman Rodney Moore (17-12-2, 7 KOs).
Jones says he’s just about fully recovered from his injury and plans to continue fighting.
“After I found out I was pregnant, he decided he didn’t want another child anymore,” Apple wrote of Eli’s biological father. “He’d changed his mind. He insisted I have another abortion. I refused. I couldn’t go through that again. The physical violence escalated for random things and reasons. He told me he’d keep doing this until I got rid of the baby.”
Apple left him and six months later, she wrote, Eli was born. Those memories, coupled with the Josh Brown situation, brought everything back Annie wrote.
“Domestic violence isn’t an amusement park attraction or haunted ride you take at an amusement park,” she wrote. “Domestic violence is a real, living nightmare. Victims are judged for not leaving, but the abuser isn’t criminalized.”
Brown was arrested in May 2015 for assault, but charges were quickly dropped.
“Usually by the time you hear of a domestic-violence victim, she’s either dead or barely alive; the rest of us survivors have lived in terror and millions of victims continue to live in terror,” Apple wrote. “Domestic violence is not about love; it’s about control. If you’re in a violent relationship, please get out and get help. It never gets better when you stay.”
These three idiots need to be thrown under the prison cells. Three Lindenwood University men’s basketball players have been charged in connection with a heinous September rape of a woman.
According to St. Louis Today, Ermias Tesfia Nega, 22, and Tylan Jamon Birts, 19, were charged Oct. 14 with second-degree rape, while Bradley Newman Jr., 20, was charged with second-degree invasion of privacy. All three players are from out of state and suspended from the team, per Lindenwood University.
“We are aware of the charges and are cooperating with the St. Charles Police on the matter. The three students have been suspended from the basketball team, and the university has begun its own Title IX investigation, in accordance to our procedure for sexual assault.”
In the report, Nega is accused of having conspired to encourage his other two teammates to have sex with the woman, even though she did not consent to it.
Nega was having consensual sex with the victim when he left the room and told Newman and Birts she was “ready” for sex, according to probable cause statements.
The lights were apparently off when Birts and Newman entered. The victim realized it was not Nega having sex with her and reached for the lights.
She saw Birts leaving the room and saw Newman crouched in the corner, court documents say. Newman was naked and had been watching Birts and the victim.
The victim told police that when she confronted Nega, he threatened her with shame if she decided to report the crime.
