Deontay Wilder death threats overshadow title defense

first_img“His life is on the line for this fight and I do mean his life,” Wilder said this week as he prepares for Saturday’s bout at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. “I am still trying to get me a body on my record.“Dominic Breazeale asked for this. This is the only sport where you can kill a man and get paid for it at the same time. It’s legal. So why not use my right to do so…if he dies, he dies.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsAs ever, there is more than a suspicion of pantomime in Wilder’s remarks, born out of a hucksterish instinct to drum up interest in a fight that, tellingly, has not been deemed worthy of pay-per-view status in the United States.There is, however, undeniable bad blood between Wilder (40-0-1, 39 knockouts) and Breazeale (20-1, 18 knockouts), which can be traced back to a confrontation between the two fighters in early 2017.

He needs to really ask himself if that’s what I’m all about,” Hunter said.“Is this the legacy I want to leave? Is this the example I want to show and come to grips with it? I think in the long run an apology is in line.”Breazeale was similarly unimpressed.“It’s definitely not appropriate, I mean come on, who says crazy stuff like that?” Breazeale said. “You never want to say that about an opponent. You have got to have sportsmanship, you have got to be professional in the sport.“You never want someone to be harmed from a fight. In this one, I understand we have personal reasons and a personal vendetta but if he gets hurt so be it. But do I ever wish death on someone?

Directorate General of Mines Safety looks to bring down accident count

first_imgKolkata: Concerned over the vulnerabilities of contractual workers in mines and falling standards of supervision in maintaining the highest safety standards, the Directorate General of Mines Safety (DGMS) is working on a strategy, according to Sanjibon Ray, Deputy Director General, Directorate General of Mines Safety.”This is part of an ambitious plan to augment mining production, as well as reduce accidents, including fatalities. Currently, we are in the process of preparing a set of recommendations as a strategy to improve the occupational safety and health (OHS) of contractual workers. The recommendations will be placed during the 12th National Safety Conference in Mines, scheduled for November. We are having talks with all stakeholders before we finalise the recommendations,” Ray said at a Session on Mines Safety on the second day of the CII Safety Symposium and Exposition organised by CII on Thursday. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeIt may be mentioned that about 100,000 contractual workers are engaged in mining activities. “The prime areas of concern include lack of adequate training and safety awareness of the contractual workforce – something which is one of the contributory factors in creating unsafe and accident-prone situations in mines,” he said, adding that the living condition of the contractual workforce in the mining sites needs vast improvement, including judicious space management while deploying transportation machinery in mining sites.

They don’t get proper drinking water, hygienic food and medical facilities,” Ray said, adding that the DGMS will recommend defined codes to safeguard precious human lives. “Accident statistics reveal that the percentage of involvement of contractual workers in fatal accidents is increasing. Data reveals that fatality rate is more in case of contractual workers than the regular employees. The rate of accidents in case of contractual workers was 2.47 times more than regular workers during the period between 2010-2016,” he said.last_img read more
