Who was the last boxer to beat George Foreman?

Who was the last boxer to beat George Foreman? George Edward Foreman, popularly known as ‘Big George’, enjoyed a long, illustrious boxing career, winning seventy-six of his eighty-one fights, including sixty-eight by knockout. Foreman first won the world heavyweight title – in fact, the World Boxing Council (WBC) and World Boxing Association (WBA) titles – in January, 1973, with a second-round technical knockout of the hitherto unbeaten Joe Frazier. He defended the title twice, before suffering his first, and most famous, professional loss, when knocked out by Muhammad Ali in the eighth round of the so-called ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ in Kinshaha, Democratic Republic of the Congo in October, 1974.

Foreman retired from boxing, the the first time, in 1977, but returned to the ring a decade later. After two unsuccessful attempts to regain the world heavyweight title, against Evander Holyfied in 1991 and Tommy Morrison in 1993, he finally did so, at the age of 45, when knocking out Michael Moorer in the tenth round in Las Vegas, home of usa casinos,  in November, 1994.

Foreman fought his eighty-first, and final, professional bout against Shannon Briggs at Trump Taj Majal Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey on in November, 1997. Despite dominating the fight for long periods, 48-year-old Foreman was unable to knock out his 25-year-old opponent and Briggs was awarded a highly controversial majority decision. Judge Steve Weisfeld scored the fight a draw, at 114-114, but relatively inexperienced judges Calvin Claxton and Larry Layton scored the fight 112-116 and 113-117, respectively, in favour of Briggs. His fortuitous pay packet no doubt made even best payout online casinos look modest. Interviewed a year later, Larry Hazzard, commissioner of the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board, acknowledged widespread criticism of the decision.

What was Sir Vivian Richards’ batting average in first class cricket?

What was Sir Vivian Richards' batting average in first class cricket? Born in St. John’s, Antigua on March 7, 1952, Sir Isaac Vivian Alexander ‘Viv’ Richards was one of the most prolific batsmen of all time. Richards made his first-class debut for the Leeward Islands, at the age of 19, in 1972, but is best remembered for his exploits in Test and One Day International cricket with West Indies and in County Cricket in England, predominantly with Somerset, for whom he made his professional debut in April, 1974. Strategy was the name of the game with Viv, and no doubt in a casino (virtual or otherwise) setting he’d be making a beeline for the best online blackjack real money table. Despite facing some of the most hostile fast bowlers in history, unfettered by any ‘one bouncer per batsman per over’ rule, ‘Master Blaster’, as Richards was affectionately known, famously forsook a batting helmet and even a mouthguard, relying on his ability to keep hime safe from harm.

Overall, Richards scored 36,212 runs in first-class cricket at an average of 49.40. His career record included 114 first-class centuries, 24 of which he scored in Test matches, and a high-score of 322, which he achieved in a single day, in the first innings of a County Championship against Warwickshire at Taunton on June 1, 1985. The latter score made Richards the first West Indian in history to score 300 runs in a day and surpassed his previous best, 291, for West Indies in the first innings of the fifth Test against England at Kennington Oval in August, 1976.Perhaps in his retirement he’s lounging on a beach or killing some time on www.cinemacasino.com .  Richards was made a Knight of the Order of the National Hero for services to cricket by the Antiguan government in 1999.

Has Leeds United ever won the Premier League?

Has Leeds United ever won the Premier League? The simple answer is no, Leeds United has never won the Premier League, at least not yet. Of course, in 2020/21 the ‘Mighty Whites’ returned to the Premier League after a 16-year absence, but in their previous 12-year spell in the highest echelon of English football finished no higher than third place. They achieved that position in 1999/2000, under former assistant, and caretaker, manager David O’Leary, who was eventually appointed as permanent replacement for previous manager George Graham.

Of course, the Premier League did not start until 1992/93, when the 22 clubs in the First Division, as the top flight was previously known, broke away from the Football Association and the Football League. At that time, Leeds United was effectively defending champion of English football, having beaten Manchester United to the First Division title by four points in 1991/92. In fact, that title, under Howard Wilkinson, was Leeds’ third, following previous wins in 1968/69 and 1973/74, both under Don Revie. Indeed, following promotion from the Second Division in 1963/64, Don Revie’s Leeds finished no worse than fourth in the First Division for the next decade; Revie left Leeds in July, 1974 to succeed Sir Alf Ramsey as the manager of the England national team.

What is the significance of the Olympic rings?

What is the significance of the Olympic rings? Arguably the most iconic symbol of the modern Olympic Games, the Olympic rings were designed by Charles Pierre de Frédy, Baron de Coubertin in 1912 and publicly presented for the first time in 1913. By that stage, Baron de Coubertin was president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), having played a pivotal role in the revival of the Olympic Games in 1896.The Olympic flag, bearing the Olympic rings, was officially raised for the first time during the opening ceremony of the Games of the VII Olympiad in Antwerp, Belgium in 1920.

The full colour version of the design consists of five uniformly-sized, interlocked, coloured rings centred on a white background. From left to right, the Olympic rings are coloured blue, yellow, black, green and red; the blue, black and red rings are positioned at the top and the yellow and green rings at the bottom. According to Baron de Coubertin, ‘This design is symbolic; the five colours are those that appear on at least one of all the national flags of the world at the present time united by Olympism.’ According to the Olympic Charter, ‘The Olympic symbol expresses the activity of the Olympic Movement and represents the union of the five continents [Asia, Africa, North and South America, Europe and Australia] and the meeting of athletes from throughout the world at the Olympic Games.’
