Anthony Joshua will end the year out of the ring when he defends his WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight titles against Kubrat Pulev at The O2 in London, England, on Dec. 12.

It will be Joshua’s first fight in the United Kingdom since September 2018, and eighth appearance at the venue where he made his professional debut in 2013. The fight will be televised on pay-per-view Sky Sports Box Office in the UK, and on streaming service DAZN in the United States.

Joshua’s Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn is trying to get a small crowd inside the indoor, 18,000-capacity venue when the champion puts the belts on the line again for a first defence in his second reign as champion after a points win over Andy Ruiz Jr on Dec. 7 avenged a stoppage loss to the American earlier in 2019.

“Whilst it’s unusual to think of an AJ fight without tens of thousands of fans in attendance, we will be doing everything we can to lobby for the safe return of fans to this event, we have to move forward together,” Hearn said.

“I know Team Pulev and [US promoter] Bob Arum will be doing all they can to become world champion on Dec.12 but AJ constantly evolves and improves and I expect a dominant performance and a spectacular KO to close out 2020.”

Pulev (28-1, 14 KOs), 39, is the mandatory challenger to Joshua’s IBF belt after compiling eights wins since a knockout loss to Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko, then WBA-IBF-WBO champion, in 2014. Pulev has beaten Joshua’s fellow Britons Derek Chisora and Hughie Fury since losing to Klitschko.
“This fight is for my late father and all Bulgarians around the world! I’m coming to London to seize the heavyweight championship of the world,” Pulev said.

Joshua (23-1, 21 KOs), 31, from north London, hopes victory over Pulev will set up a clash against the winner of English rival Tyson Fury versus American Deontay Wilder, who are being lined up to face each other in a third bout for Fury’s WBC version of the world title in Las Vegas on Dec. 19.

“AJ’s resume is unrivalled, and this is the final hurdle until we challenge for the undisputed crown next year,” Hearn said. Cc:@espn

EndSARS Protest: I Doubt Nigeria Had A President- Aisha Yesufu

Kannywood Actress, Zainab Abdullahi, Asks Northerners To Kill Nigerian Activist, Aisha Yesufu

Abdullahi, who is a member of the Buhari Support Group, and Buhari Media Centre, in an Instagram post described Yesufu as a Jew, who must be attacked by all means.

A Kannywood star, Zainab Abdullahi, has called on Northerners to kill popular human rights activist, Aisha Yesufu.

Abdullahi, who is a member of the Buhari Support Group, and Buhari Media Centre, in an Instagram post described Yesufu as a Jew, who must be attacked by all means.

Since the start of #EndSARS protest, Kannywood stars have been taking to social media to discredit the movement, calling those, who joined the agitation as bad muslims that must be dealt with.

A picture taken of Yesufu during the protest in Abuja where she raised a clenched fist, became a morale booster and symbol for Nigerians calling for the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a notorious police unit known for brutality against citizens.

Calling for the head of the activist, Abdullahi said, “Aisha is a Jew in Islamic shirt. it is not crime Luwadi and Madigo and same sex marriage, gay people have the chance to be given freedom between good. Good Muslims should be found with sense and wise thoughts.

“Muslims should know that she’s getting a chance to give the right to gay and Madigo together with sex marriage, this is one of the reasons why the Jewish are better than trying to uplift your honour and look at the kind of humiliation she did to the Northerner and religious teachers in a video message that came out yesterday to seek for the Northerners. Hear what she said about President Buhari who was born to be a grandson, she is not ashamed, she is a Jew in Islamic shirt. She is talking no shame. Stop seeing her as a hero, she is with a hidden purpose for Muslim religion and our peace.”

Buhari’s Fanatic, Zainab Abdullahi.

Yesufu, who was a prominent member of the Bring Back Our Girls movement, a group clamouring for the return of abducted school girls from Chibok community in Borno State in 2014, is not new to threats of all kinds as a result of her activism.

In February this year, Ohanaeze Ndigbo called for her arrest for revealing that Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, was attacked by bandits during a train ride in the North.

In a post on Twitter, she said, “I have read and heard the petition and report seeking my arrest and questioning over the train incident I reported which had Amaechi as a victim.

“Maybe an arrest will make my cheeks come down.

“The security circle knew about that attack, and they did not do anything about it.

“I’m repeating my earlier statement that I had two siblings on that train and a sister-in-law.”

Spread the love

Award-winning singer, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu popularly known as Burna Boy is promoting a new petition in the United Kingdom to sanction the federal government and public officials for human rights abuses over the #EndSARS movement.

The petition on the UK government and parliament website accused the government and the police of violating the rights of agitators protesting against police brutality.

It urged the UK to implement sanctions that allow “individuals and entities that violate human rights around the world to be targeted.”

“Deploying sanctions would provide accountability for and be a deterrent to anyone involved in violations of human rights,” it read.

The singer who is currently in the UK urged British citizens and residents, to sign the petition, urging other people in America and Asia to the same.

He wrote, “I am in London and I’m doing my best to make sure sanctions are imposed against Nigerian Government Officials. I need all citizens of all European countries, America, Asia EVERYWHERE to please Do the Same. THEY MUST ALL PAY!!”

The page noted that the petition, created on Tuesday and which can only be signed by British citizens and residents, will be considered in the UK parliament when it reaches its target of 100,000 signatures.

Many individuals have so far signed a petition as at the time of filing this report.

This is coming after multiple reports of massive shootings of #EndSARS protesters by security agents at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday evening.
