UFC On ESPN 9 Results : Gilbert Burns Dominates Tyron Woodley To Win Decision ↑ Grab this Headline Animator
Fast rising contender Gilbert Burns brought former Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley some rude awakening in the main event of UFC On ESPN 9 Main event on Saturday night at the Apex Center.

Woodley went into the fight after almost more than a year away from the Octagon and his return wasn't as palatable as he perceived, with Gilbert Burns pressuring and dominating him from the opening round till the end to win a unanimous decision 50-44 twice and 55-45 on the Judges scorecards.
“I’m very happy. I trained so hard for this fight. I knew I could do it. I was calling this guy out for a reason,” Burns told Daniel Cormier in his post-fight interview. “My name now has got to be the No. 1 contender. I love the champ, my training partner Kamaru Usman, but c’mon – give me the shot. I’ve got a lot of love for you, but I’m next. I want to fight for the title. If they want to make the f…

Joseph Parker Will To Go For Other Options If Joshua Fails

Joseph Parker Will To Go For Other Options If Joshua Fails
17/11/2017


The WBO Heavyweight Champion Joseph Parker has made known he has more options than Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder title unifications to think about as his talks with Joshua less fruitful.

Joseph Parker is ready to put his titles and his Unbeaten record on the line to unify the Heavyweight division, if Anthony Joshua is willing to give him a 40% offer.

Parker is (24-0, 18 KOs) and will really love a title unification fight with Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) but if this doesn't come with a good deal, he will turn to other options which will include Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) or any other challenger.

“If it was about the money, I wouldn’t have been calling out AJ two years ago or a year ago,” Parker told the Daily Mail for a story posted to its website Friday. “I was calling him out and wanted to fight him then, even at that stage, even when it wasn’t worth a lot of money. But I’ve always wanted to test myself. I don’t mind fighting Wilder. If his team came and said, ‘We have a good offer for you,’ and it was a good offer that we’re all happy with, then maybe we’ll go down that route.

“I just want to fight the best out there and I think, respectfully, AJ is one of the best and Wilder is one of the best because they’re both champions. So I’d like to test myself against the best champions. … But there is Tony Bellew, Lucas Browne. There are a lot of options out there.”

“Forty percent is what we think is a good deal,” Parker said. “That’s what our target is, but they’re not on the same page as us in terms of making 60-40. So anything below 35 percent wouldn’t be a go-ahead for us. We’re looking at fighting in March or April. If they’re keen to fight [then], we’re very keen to fight. It’s time that all the heavyweight champions unified, so we can see who the best in the world is.”
