    Tyson Fury has made it clear that he has no plans to continue boxing past 2029, signaling a significant shift in the heavyweight division as it prepares for the next generation of fighters.

    The Gypsy King recently lost his undefeated crown in a dramatic fashion against Oleksandr Usyk in their heavyweight unification bout. This defeat has prompted questions about Fury’s future in the sport and whether he has the motivation to continue.

    A rematch with Usyk is scheduled for later this year, with Fury aiming to reclaim his status as world champion. By the time he faces Usyk again, Fury will be 36 years old. He has flirted with retirement in the past, notably announcing in 2022 that he would retire on his 34th birthday, only to make a swift return to the ring.

    Fury appears set to continue fighting for at least a few more years, with a highly anticipated clash with Anthony Joshua potentially on the horizon for 2025. However, the former WBC heavyweight champion has no plans to extend his career much longer. “I can’t see myself hanging around for the next five years. Never mind 20 years,” Fury stated.

    “I’ve given a lot to this game. I gave all my youth, all my teenage years, all my young adult life. I’ve got to have some time to be me, really. All the things I’ve done and all the accolades and all the money I’ve earned, I’ve got to have time to enjoy it. It’s only a short life, isn’t it? We’re here today, gone tomorrow.”

    Fury’s eventual retirement will leave a significant void in the heavyweight division, especially with Usyk and Joshua also nearing the end of their careers. Among the younger heavyweights, Daniel Dubois stands out as the highest-ranked boxer under 30, having already faced Usyk in a controversial title shot in 2023. Dubois’ next challenge will be against IBF mandatory challenger Filip Hrgovic later this summer.

    American Jared Anderson is also viewed as a future heavyweight star, boasting an impressive record of 17 wins with 15 by knockout. Meanwhile, Moses Itauma is seen as the most promising teenage talent, with many, including Fury, backing him to become a future world champion.

    Two Frenchmen were killed when their motorcycle crashed into a road divider in Thalang district early Friday morning.

    The crash occurred near a curve at the Heroines’ Monument roundabout in front of Ban Phak Chi health station in tambon Pa Khok, said Pol Lt Col Niwat Thimket, the investigation chief at Thalang police station, who received reports of the accident around 4:40 a.m.

    At the scene, police found an overturned black Yamaha TMAX with skid marks on its right side. Officers discovered the body of a 39-year-old French national near a power pole about 50 meters from the bike. The man, who was wearing a crash helmet, sustained multiple wounds and had lost part of his left leg. His passport was found at the scene.

    The body of another Frenchman, 41, was found on the opposite side of the road. An initial police investigation revealed that the two men were employed at an office near the Thao Thep Krasattri and Thao Si Sunthon Monument in Thalang.

    Before the accident, they had left their office to return home. The 39-year-old man was riding the motorcycle with his compatriot as a pillion passenger.

    When they reached the curve, the motorcyclist lost control of the bike, causing it to hit the road divider. The impact of the crash threw the rider into the light pole, severing his leg. The pillion rider was ejected to the opposite side of the crash site.

    Police suspect the bike was traveling at high speed, and the rider lost control at the curve. They plan to examine security camera footage to determine the exact cause of the crash.

    The bodies were sent to Vachira Phuket Hospital for post-mortem examinations. Police will coordinate with the French embassy to contact their relatives.

    Thai police and relevant agencies held a press conference to announce a raid on the drug smuggling network “Mai Logistics,” operated by a former police officer in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai. The operation resulted in the seizure of assets worth over 2 billion baht.

    According to the Thai police, officers in Pathum Thani arrested eight individuals who allegedly smuggled 300 kilograms of ketamine into Lam Luk Ka, Pathum Thani, using a private parcel delivery company. However, the authorities managed to confiscate only 46 kilograms, as the suspects had already distributed most of the ketamine to local drug dealers within an hour on March 15, 2023. On March 25, 2023, the police intensified their investigation and discovered another 300 kilograms of ketamine concealed inside 15 parcels at a private delivery company in Pathum Thani. Subsequently, on March 28, they arrested three more suspects in Phitsanulok, seizing four million amphetamine pills.

    One of the suspects, identified as 2nd Lt. Mai, a former police officer, was found to be involved in smuggling illicit substances via the delivery system and was apprehended in July 2023. The investigation expanded from May 1 to May 21, 2024, uncovering additional individuals involved across eight provinces in Thailand. It was revealed that the “Mai Logistics” network engaged in money laundering by operating an electrical shop as a front. Consequently, the police seized assets valued at 2.03 billion baht, including lands, buildings, vehicles, firearms, and other properties.

    Thai authorities are also investigating whether the private delivery company was complicit in the crimes. Reports indicate that the illicit substances were transported through the Thai border to be distributed across central Thailand.

    Mr. Somsak Thepsuthin, the Thai Minister of Public Health, addressed the national media regarding the Prime Minister’s proposal to reclassify cannabis flowers as a type 5 narcotic illegal drug. The government aims to use cannabis exclusively for medical and health purposes to generate economic value. The proposal process is expected to be concluded by the end of 2024.

    According to Mr. Somsak, drafting the necessary legislation will involve two subordinate laws. The first, announced by the Ministry of Public Health, will designate “the cannabis plant” as a type 5 narcotic under the Narcotics Code, excluding certain parts: leaves, branches, roots, stems, and seeds. Essentially, only the flowers, or buds, will be considered the illegal narcotic portion. Hemp will not be classified as an illegal narcotic again, and CBD will also remain legal. The second law will outline regulations for growing, possessing, importing, exporting, or using cannabis.

    The drafting of these laws must align with current Thai laws and government policy. Mr. Somsak emphasized that the laws must clearly define their goals and content for further proceedings.

    The proposed subordinate bill includes three main objectives:

    1. Cannabis cultivation, possession, import, export, or consumption must be strictly for medical purposes, patient treatment, research, or similar uses, not for recreational purposes.
    2. The qualification process for granting cannabis use permissions must be clear, proportionate, and compliant with regulations.
    3. Ministerial regulations must be announced to the public in advance, allowing time for citizens and cannabis users to adapt and comply.

    Mr. Somsak stated that the processes would not be overly complex or difficult for current genuine medical cannabis dispensaries and shops and should not disrupt users who truly need cannabis for medical reasons.

    Meanwhile, pro-cannabis activists continue to protest making cannabis buds an illegal narcotic and hope to reach a compromise with the Minister of Public Health before any final laws are enacted, instead calling for better regulations.

    Conor McGregor is set to return to the UFC in June, but Dustin Poirier has downplayed the possibility of a fourth fight between them.

    Poirier is preparing for his latest title challenge against 155lbs champion Islam Makhachev at UFC 302 on June 2, aiming to finally secure the championship belt. Despite this, there is continued speculation about a fourth bout with McGregor, whom Poirier has faced three times, most recently in their July 2021 trilogy fight.

    However, Poirier insists the rivalry is behind him. He told ESPN, “I think that ship has sailed. All I want is the UFC lightweight championship. I don’t feel the need to fight him again at all. I don’t need that [bad] energy in my life.”

    McGregor first defeated Poirier via knockout in 2014. Their rematch came seven years later in January 2021, where Poirier avenged his loss by knocking out McGregor. Their trilogy fight occurred six months later, ending with McGregor breaking his leg.

    A fourth fight was anticipated for McGregor’s return, but delays have slowed these rumors. Instead, McGregor is set to face Michael Chandler at 170lbs on June 29, after gaining weight during his hiatus from the octagon.

    Having fought both Chandler and McGregor, Poirier believes McGregor will win within two rounds. He said, “If Conor comes back with his timing and rhythm – despite the injury and long layoff – and if he’s anything like he was before, I think he stops Michael Chandler. If Conor is who he was before the injury, I think the fight is over in two rounds.”

    The post West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta Charged with Betting Market Manipulation appeared first on Pattaya One News.

    West Ham midfielder Lucas Paqueta has been charged by the Football Association (FA) for allegedly receiving yellow cards deliberately “to influence the betting market.”

    The charges pertain to a Premier League match against Leicester City on 12 November 2022, as well as fixtures against Aston Villa on 12 March, Leeds United on 21 May, and Bournemouth on 12 August in 2023.

    The 26-year-old Brazil international has been under investigation since last summer due to suspicious betting patterns. The FA’s statement alleges Paqueta “intentionally sought to receive a card from the referee for the improper purpose of affecting the betting market.”

    Paqueta, who joined West Ham from Lyon for £36.5 million in August 2022, expressed his shock and disappointment over the charges. He stated, “For nine months, I have cooperated fully with the investigation and provided all information I could. I deny all the charges and will fight to clear my name.”

    The FA also charged Paqueta with “two breaches of FA Rule F3” for failing to comply with information and documentation requests.

    The charges came on the same day West Ham announced Julen Lopetegui as their new head coach following David Moyes’ departure. West Ham released a statement saying they will continue to support Paqueta throughout the process.

    Paqueta, selected for Brazil’s squad for the Copa America next month, has until 3 June to respond to the misconduct charges.

    The potential penalties for Paqueta range from a six-month to a lifetime ban if the breach is proven. Previous similar cases include Stratford Town defender Kynan Isaac, who was banned for 10 years for spot-fixing during an FA Cup tie.

    The Matches in Question:

    1. West Ham 0-2 Leicester – 12 November 2022: Paqueta booked for a ‘lunge’ on Leicester’s Boubakary Soumare in the 60th minute.
    2. West Ham 1-1 Aston Villa – 12 March 2023: Paqueta booked for a ‘lunging challenge’ on John McGinn in the 70th minute.
    3. West Ham 3-1 Leeds United – 21 May 2023: Paqueta booked for pulling back Leeds’ Crysencio Summerville in the 65th minute.
    4. West Ham 1-1 Bournemouth – 12 August 2023: Paqueta booked for handball in the 94th minute.

    Analysis

    BBC Sport’s chief football reporter Simon Stone highlights the severity of the charges against Paqueta, emphasizing the potential penalties ranging from six months to a lifetime ban. Stone notes that the situation is more serious than previous betting breaches involving players like Ivan Toney and Kieran Trippier, as Paqueta’s case involves alleged in-game spot-fixing.

    Paqueta remains steadfast in his innocence, with West Ham standing by him during the ongoing investigation.

    Millions of fight fans watched Oleksandr Usyk unify the world heavyweight boxing titles by defeating Tyson Fury last weekend in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. However, most of them didn’t pay for it.

    According to online intelligence company Yield Sec, at least 20 million fans watched “Ring of Fire” using illegal streams. This massive piracy cost Sky Sports, TNT Sport, and DAZN more than $100 million in lost revenue. The breakdown showed that 45 percent of the illegal streaming occurred in Europe, 25 percent in North America, and 16 percent in Asia.

    “Sports piracy is theft,” a DAZN spokesman told Mail Sport. “DAZN invests a significant amount in combating it, using technology to monitor the activity of users, and educating fans about the risks. It may seem a victimless crime, but most illegal feeds are provided by criminal networks or carry the risk of phishing and identity theft. Our advice is don’t risk the sport you care about, or your own data, by using illegal feeds.”

    Fury and Usyk are expected to rematch this October in Riyadh.

    The original ‘Twister’ earned the same rating back in 1996. It’s the summer blockbuster season, and fans are gearing up for some of the most anticipated features to hit the big screen. Among them is Glen Powell and Daisy Edgar-Jones’ upcoming film, Twisters. This standalone sequel to 1996’s Twister is set to take fans on an exhilarating storm-chasing ride. The movie has finally received its rating, earning a PG-13 for “intense action and peril, some language, and injury images,” according to ComicBook.

    The rating suggests that director Lee Isaac Chung has crafted a four-quadrant feature promising big action set pieces and lasting consequences for the storm chasers. The sequel follows Kate Cooper (Edgar-Jones), a former storm chaser haunted by a devastating tornado encounter during her college years. Now studying storm patterns from the safety of New York City, she is drawn back to the open plains by her friend, Javi, to test a new tracking system. There, she meets Tyler Owens (Powell), a charming and reckless social media superstar who thrives on posting his storm-chasing adventures. As storm season intensifies with terrifying phenomena, Kate, Tyler, and their teams find themselves fighting for their lives.

    With an exciting premise and a PG-13 rating, the movie promises big set pieces, intense storm-chasing, and an engaging plot. Previously revealed images show the teams facing the consequences of being in the eye of the storm. Speaking to Collider, the movie’s writer Mark L. Smith teased, “It’s just a real wild ride with some good, fun characters. Hopefully, we can tap into what the original had because that thing is just iconic.” He further praised the director, saying, “But it’s so cool to have a director like Isaac taking on something like this. It’s just so out of his norm, and I think he’s having fun. I was texting with him a couple of days ago, and it’s just all craziness.”

    The previously released trailers give fans a taste of this wild ride, promising compelling performances. The movie boasts an ensemble cast including Anthony Ramos as Javi, Brandon Perea, Maura Tierney, Sasha Lane, Harry Hadden-Paton, David Corenswet, and Daryl McCormack. Further rounding off the cast are Tunde Adebimpe, Katy O’Brian, Nik Dodani, Kiernan Shipka, and Paul Scheer.

    Twisters will storm into theaters on July 19.
