Evander Holyfield, Former World Heavyweight Champion, Stopped With TKO In First Fight In A Decade

The return to boxing by former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield after more than a decade away from the sport did not go well.

The 58-year-old Holyfield was TKO’d in the first round by Vitor Belfort in a PPV match Saturday at Florida’s Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Holyfield was returning to boxing as a last-minute fill-in for Oscar De La Hoya, who dropped out after contracting Covid-19.

Belfort, a 44-year-old former UFC fighter, was on Holyfield from the first bell, backing him into the ropes with a flurry of quick punches. Holyfield was knocked to the canvas twice before the referee stopped the match.

Holyfield never landed a punch. The former champ is best known for his two victories over Mike Tyson, which include the famous “ear bite” fight between the two.

Belfort was gracious after the match.

LA Times columnist calls Larry Elder 'very real threat to communities of color'

Larry Elder questions journalism amid media double standard

California gubernatorial candidate speaks out about the different coverage he receives in the media compared to Gavin Newsom on ‘Hannity’

Los Angeles Times columnist Jean Guerrero said on Sunday that California Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder poses a “very real threat to communities of color.”

Guerrero appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” to speak about the September 14 California governor recall election. Host Brian Stelter questioned Guerrero about Elder, the Republican frontrunner who has faced intense criticism from the Los Angeles Times and other media outlets in the past.

Stelter asked whether Elder is acting on a “Trump playbook” in the state to avoid the often negative media coverage of him. Guerrero agreed, claiming that Elder has only appeared and spoken with right-wing media pundits.

“Clearly, the LA Times opinion folks have been very much against Elder,” Stelter commented.

Elder slammed the LA Times coverage of his campaign.

“This is not the first time the L.A. Times has attacked me, there is another writer who all but called me a Black David Duke,” Elder said. “They are scared to death.”

Waitrose announces further cutback on single-use plastic bags

Supermarket says it aims to remove 40m a year from deliveries and in-store collections

Waitrose is aiming to eliminate 40m single-use plastic bags a year by removing them from deliveries and in-store collections.

“Bags for life”, which cost 10p, will also be pulled from all major stores and replaced with a 50p reusable bag that is said to be twice as durable, and is made from recycled materials as well as being fully recyclable.

The company said its research found that 10p bags were increasingly being used only once and not multiple times as intended.

The change will come into effect from 27 September, the same day that deliveries into homes will be allowed again.

If preferred, customers will still have the option of bringing their own shopping into their home in the crates provided, or have it brought to their doorstep by the delivery driver.
