Boxing’s Jarrell Miller Calls Out Deontay Wilder Trump Used You!

EXCLUSIVE

Deontay Wilder is being called out for hypocrisy by a heavyweight contender who loved Wilder’s passionate rant about racism, but HATED the fact Wilder visited President Trump.

After Wilder told Tyson Fury that black people have been fighting in this country for 400 years — he went off on a radio host who asked him to explain the comment. 

Wilder exploded with a passionate rant about how black people have been oppressed and mistreated in the U.S. — and he was offended that the radio host pushed him on the topic.  

But, undefeated boxing star Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller has a problem with Wilder … claiming he undermined his own message by meeting with President Trump back in May. 

Wilder had visited Trump’s White House with Sylvester Stallone and others as part of the group paying homage to Jack Johnson … after President Trump pardoned the late boxer for a 1913 conviction many believe was racially motivated. 

Miller — a legit Top 5 heavyweight contender who’s lined up to fight either Wilder or Anthony Joshua this year — says Wilder got used by Trump to curry favor with African Americans … and it’s a stain on his public image. 

“LeBron James, Steph Curry, a lot of other guys didn’t want to go up to the White House because they knew what Trump was doing was just using black athletes as a shade to hopefully get black voters to get on his good side.”

Miller sees this as Deontay talking out of both sides of his mouth and, although he loved Thursday’s rant, he’s got a message for Deontay when it comes to racial issues. 

“We have to have the same energy all the time.”

Khabib Nurmagomedov Calls Out Mayweather … Trashes McGregor

Breaking News

Khabib Nurmagomedov says he REALLY wants his next fight to be against Floyd Mayweather — saying he’s ready to prove all of the critics wrong. 

And as for Conor McGregor … Khabib says that guy was ALL TALK — but ever since the fight, it seems Conor “forgot his tongue.”

The UFC champ spoke with reporters for almost an HOUR at a press conference in Moscow on Monday and explained why he’s dead serious about getting a shot with Floyd. 

“Frankly, I think money-wise, and competition-wise, the bout against Mayweather would be much more interesting [than a UFC fight against Tony Ferguson].”

“It has always been very interesting … Two undefeated fighters? It would be very interesting to see who wins.”

Khabib admitted some people on his own training team don’t think he has a shot to beat Floyd in a boxing match — “Well, this motivates me.”

As for McGregor, Khabib said a reconciliation wit Conor might be possible down the line — but not right now. He also said he’s not sure if he would shake Conor’s hand if they ran into each other on the street. 

Khabib says he has not spoken with Conor since UFC 229 on Oct. 6th. 

During the fight, Khabib says Conor tried to explain that all the insults leading up the bou were “only business” … but Khabib wasn’t having it.

After the asswhooping,m Khabib says Conor didn’t have much to say — “Maybe he forgot his tongue at home.”

Khabib also said he realizes he could have hurt himself when he jumped out of the octagon to attack Conor’s team.

“It just happened. And it was quit high. I could’ve easily have broken my leg. You never know how you are going to act in a certain situation. You have to control yourself.”

“I don’t take anything back. I did what i did. But if i were looking at this from a side, i cant condone such behavior.”

As for Floyd, he previously told us he thinks the fight with Khabib will happen and predicts a 9-figure payday.

Ex-RNC Chair on Khashoggi Yeah, Sure, a ‘Fist Fight’ Broke Out … Calls BS on Saudi Arabia

EXCLUSIVE

The former head of the RNC doesn’t believe a word of Saudi Arabia’s explanation of how journalist Jamal Khashoggi died, and he doesn’t buy Trump‘s denial of financial ties there.

We got Michael Steele Saturday at the L.A. Convention Center during Politicon 2018 and asked what he made of Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor insisting that Khashoggi had gotten into a fist fight inside the country’s consulate in Turkey … which led to his death.

It’s clear he thinks the Saudi Arabian goverment’s full of it — as he describes just how unlikely it is for such a scenario to play out … especially in light of how brutal his murder has been described by Turkish officials. He’s said to have been dismembered.

As for Trump very publicly declaring he has “no financial interests in Saudi Arabia” … Mike’s got a theory on that too. Funny how one word can change the meaning of something so drastically … which the President is no stranger to at this point. #WordsMatter
