Frampton vs Jackson LIVE: Frampton wins with ninth round stoppage, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury confirm fight

Frampton speaking ringside: “The atmosphere was special. It made my dreams come true. “Unbelievable night from start to finish. It was his corner who threw the towel in – he would’ve stayed in as long as possible. “I was nervous. And I’m not usually nervous until the changing rooms. I was trying to eat a bit of chicken and my hand was shaking. Less said about chicken the better, by the way. “I would love to be a world champion again”. Josh Warrington: “He looks fast, he looks very relaxed. Coming into a big fight like this with that expectation, you have that pressure. I’m looking for that fight.” Let's block ads! (Why?) talkSPORT

New 'zombie' gene found in elephants could help humans fight cancer

Health
They may not be the fastest or the smartest or even the scariest, but when it comes to beating cancer, elephants are the superheroes of the living world.

With all those cells...

Health
Rates of HIV infection are on the rise in 50 countries with more than 1.8 million people becoming infected in 2017, a far cry from goals established for the near future, according to a new United Nations report. The report, entitled “Miles to Go,” published earlier this week by the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS, says the pace of progress in saving lives and preventing new infections is “not matching the global ambition” of cutting the infection rate to 500,000 a year by 2020. While the death rate from AIDS-related illnesses -- 940,000 in 2017 -- is the lowest this century, it is still nearly double the goal of reducing AIDS-related deaths to 500,000 or fewer by 2020, according to the report. ”New HIV infections are not falling fast enough,&rdquo...
