Why Joseph Parker Is Doomed If He Fights Anthony Joshua – Heavyweight Boxer, Dillian Whyte Gives Reasons

According to Daily Star UK, Anthony Joshua’s rival Dillian Whyte claims Joseph Parker is set to fail in his forthcoming heavyweight

According to Daily Star UK, Anthony Joshua’s rival Dillian Whyte claims Joseph Parker is set to fail in his forthcoming heavyweight clash for one obvious reason.

Whyte was unbeaten when he faced off against Joshua in December 2015, providing the future unified champion with the sternest test of his career.

The 29-year-old appeared to have Joshua on the ropes when he wobbled him with a well-timed right hand.

But he could not sustain the momentum and eventually became the 15th victim in a perfect knockout streak that has since extended to 20 fights.

Ahead of his own heavyweight clash with Lucas Browne later this month, Whyte was asked whether Kiwi WBO world champion Parker could give Joshua problems on March 31.

“Parker will come to fight but I believe what he brings to the table will work right into AJ’s hands,” Whyte told talkSPORT.

“Because he is a ‘come-forward’ fighter, he’s not the strongest of guys and he’s not got the strongest defence and AJ will relish that – taking the half a step back and shooting the right down the middle all the time.

“Parker’s not very good on the back foot.

“He just knows how to come forward and he hasn’t got real power and good defence which is going to be a problem.”

Former Man United Manager Louis Van Gaal Blast Jose Mourinho Over Treatment Of Bastian Schweinsteiger

Louis van Gaal has criticised Jose Mourinho for the way he treated Bastian Schweinsteiger at Manchester United. The then Germany

Louis van Gaal has criticised Jose Mourinho for the way he treated Bastian Schweinsteiger at Manchester United.

The then Germany captain penned a three-year deal at Old Trafford in July 2015 as he was reunited with his former Bayern Munich boss Van Gaal.

However, that link ended after just a year as Van Gaal was sacked and replaced by Mourinho, who froze the experienced midfielder out to such an extent that United had to write him off as an asset in their club accounts.

Schweinsteiger made a brief return to the squad before joining Major League Soccer’s Chicago Fire last March.

Mourinho admitted regret at the way he handled things, treatment that irked predecessor Van Gaal.

“Schweinsteiger was, of course, older but not too old,” the former United boss told Sport Bild.

“His body was not able to keep up with the high demands of Premier League.

“Bayern sold him to us as fit player, but, in fact, physically he had reached the end.

“How Mourinho treated him after me, Schweini did not deserve this. But it explains the situation, how it stood with Schweinsteiger.

“It’s a shame because he is a player like Luis Enrique, Mark van Bommel or Philipp Lahm – the guys who always present on the pitch.”

Most Nigerian Record Label Owners Know Nothing About Music – Dbanj

Nigerian Hip Hop artiste, Banji Oladapo, popularly known as Dbanj on Wednesday took a swipe at music record label owners

Nigerian Hip Hop artiste, Banji Oladapo, popularly known as Dbanj on Wednesday took a swipe at music record label owners in Nigeria. 

Also known as the Kokomaster, Dbanj who was one of the panelist discussing the topic, ‘Changing The Game: Artistes As Leaders’ at the 2018 Social Media Week Lagos, said music record label owners in Nigeria know nothing about the music business.

He said further that one of the challenges confronting the growth of Nigerian Music Industry is that Nigerian artistes lack capacity building.

“Most of the new generation record labels are founded by Yahoo boys. You must understand first, why are you coming into music.

“Nigerian artistes need a lot of capacity building. It is only in Nigeria that the owner of a record label doesn’t know anything about music.”

The Oliver Twist crooner also explained how he ventured into music, attributing it to the fear of poverty.

Despite hitting some people in the music industry hard, Dbanj encouraged young and upcoming artistes about building their brand.

According to him, being a brand is not a day’s job it is a daily and deliberate effort that involves evolving.

“Just like any product, you must always evolve. The fear of being poor made me think outside the box. This is one of the factors that drove me into music,” he said.

Dbanj speaking during the SMW

 

Also known as Eja Nla (Big Fish) by his fans, Dbanj is ready to swim in the digital space where he believes the future lies.

He called on business owners and investors to promote Nigerian music through collaborations and partnership.

Dbanj rose to prominence on the imprint of  Mo’Hits record label which started in 2004, founded by Don Jazzy.

The label would grow to have a crew comprising of, in addition to Don Jazzy and D’Banj, Wande Coal, Dr. Sid, K-Switch, Ikechukwu and D’Prince.

It, however, collapsed to the annoyance of fans when Dbanj and Don Jazzy painfully split in 2012 over internal disagreements.

Dbanj later started his own record label, DB records.
