Tyson Fury Reveals That He Is About to Retire

Published

on

Tyson Fury announced his retirement from professional boxing after defeating Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. The 33-year-old used a vicious uppercut to knock out his opponent in the sixth round before repeating a vow he made to his wife, Paris, to retire from the sport.

A Huge Promise

After winning his trilogy battle against Deontay Wilder last year, Fury promised his wife he would retire, but the WBC heavyweight champion chose to defend his championship against Whyte in front of a record-breaking crowd at Wembley.

Getting All The Support

However, Fury’s promoter Frank Warren stated that if his fighter decides to retire this time, he will support his choice.

Fury’s career has been marked by differences. He’s won some of the biggest fights in the last decade, but his mental health has been a major issue for him, and he’s even admitted to being suicidal before returning to the sport in 2018. In his view, though, there is no doubt that he is the best heavyweight fighter of all time, and he has the body of work to back up such a bold claim.

Disney Might Lose Rights to Mickey Mouse

Published

By

It has been revealed that Disney may be set to lose the rights to its most well-known and adored figure. According to reports, Republican Senator Josh Hawley has presented a bill that would strip Disney of the copyright on the original Mickey Mouse if it passes.

Not All Fun and Games

If passed, the law would reduce copyright protections from 95 to 56 years, meaning Disney would lose some of its older copyrights immediately.

As Big as It Gets

Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks came up with the idea for Mickey Mouse in 1928. The character has since become Disney’s mascot and one of the world’s most recognizable cartoon characters.

Hawley’s bill is unlikely to pass, according to Deadline, citing a Democrat-controlled Senate as one of the reasons. Senator Patrick Leahy, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on intellectual property, is described as a “major supporter for the film business when it comes to fighting piracy and improving copyright rights,” according to the report.

A Little Backup Goes a Long Way

The passenger brought everyone safely at Palm Beach International Airport with the assistance of air traffic controllers on the ground.

Mayday Mayday

The small plane was 70 miles off the Florida coast when the incident occurred, according to the New York Post, which reported on the astounding performance.  “I’ve got a serious situation here. My pilot has gone incoherent. I have no idea how to fly the airplane.” Stated the passenger as he was trying to communicate with air traffic control.

The airplane, which can achieve speeds of 215 mph, has 14 seats, and a 52-foot wingspan, was able to land safely around 25 miles north of Palm Beach, according to maker Cessna. After that, air traffic control assisted the passenger in landing the plane and thus bringing everyone to safety.
