Deontay Wilder will have no trouble KO'ing Tyson Fury according to former world title challenger Luis Ortiz. Ortiz threatened to upset the world champion when he had him in trouble in March but was eventually stopped in the 10th round. The Cuban bounced back with a straightforward victory over Razvan Cojanu in July and will take on Travis Kauffman on the Wilder-Fury undercard on December 1. "In my last fight at Staples Center the fans showed me so much love and I can't wait to be back," he said. "I know Travis Kauffman has a good record and I know he's definitely got heart. If all goes as expected and Wilder puts Fury to sleep like I think he will, I want another shot at him ASAP. It will be an epic rematch between me and Wilder.''

Gina Ortiz Jones walks into El Rodeo de Jalisco, a modest Mexican eatery in a San Antonio strip-mall serving tacos and comfort food, shortly after 8am. At first glance, she looks just like anyone else ordering breakfast at the small establishment; from the Hispanic family that drinks coffee as they await mole chilaquiles, to the table of workers who appear to be enjoying a hearty meal before a long day. Her hair is pulled back into a ponytail that hangs off one of her shoulders, as she dons black joggers, sweats and a buttoned vest. The Air Force veteran effortlessly blends in with the residents of San Antonio, dubbed "Military City" for being home to the largest active and retired military populations in the country. In fact, the only obvious difference between her and anyone else in Texas' geographically and politically diverse 23rd district is that she could soon become its next congresswoman. "I think I’m best positioned to represent this … [Read more...] about Gina Ortiz Jones is ready for a fight in Texas midterms

Rick Jervis USA TODAY Published 6:41 AM EDT Sep 18, 2018 LAREDO, Texas – The Border Patrol agent who allegedly went on a killing spree this month is a former Navy corpsman who led a quiet, suburban life with a wife, children and respected job. But Juan David Ortiz, 35, also wished to "eradicate all the prostitutes" and befriended sex workers before shooting them execution-style and dumping their bodies in rural areas, law enforcement and county officials said. Police are still trying to determine what exactly triggered Ortiz to launch the spree that left four people dead in this border city. He's been charged with four counts of murder and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Anne-Marie – Speak Your Mind ★★★☆☆ Download this: "Ciao Adios", "Then", " Anne-Marie is something of an anomaly in the UK pop scene; an artist who sounds as though she should be bigger than she is right now. The Essex-born pop singer is less polished than most pop fans will have come to expect, but the streetwise sass is what makes her stand out in a very crowded field, and her debut album Speak Your Mind is jam-packed with the stuff. Opening with “Cry”, a top-of-the-lungs belter that recalls the anthemic, uplifting style of Norwegian pop star Sigrid, she stamps down that trademark zero f**ks given attitude when it comes to men who waste her time. On single “Ciao Adios” you can picture the curl of the lip and the mic drop as she dismisses an unfaithful boyfriend. Both songs offer pleasingly refreshing takes on the ‘you cheated’ track; she’s not wasting time crying over this one, he wasted his … [Read more...] about Album reviews: Anne-Marie, Speedy Ortiz, Twin Shadow, Okkervill River, Willie Nelson
