Ruiz Jr weighed in at 268lbs before knocking Joshua out, but is hoping to be around a stone lighter this time.

“I have a lot of respect for Anthony, outside the ring he is a very good man,” the champion told ESPN Mexico.

Ruiz is out to silence the doubters once again

“It will not be an easy fight. I think it will be a hard fight, but nothing is easy in life, so we are training very hard. We will be prepared for whatever he brings.

“I will arrive in better condition. Lighter, faster and more powerful. They will believe that in December they will win.

“People will always talk, but I have faith that we’re going to win and shut up more mouths.”

Lionel Messi has once again won the Golden Shoe award after scoring the most league goals in Europe's top division leagues last season, MySportDab reports.

The Barcelona star won the gong in May after bagging 36 league goals in the 2018-19 campaign.

Messi became the first player to win the accolade for three successive years after he beat Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe by three goals.

The 32-year-old was joined on stage at the Antigua Fabrica Estrella Damm in Barcelona by his wife Antonella Roccuzzo and sons Thiago and Mateo and he also posed for photos alongside all six of his Golden Shoes.

Messi was given the prize for notching 34 goals the season before and was crowned the Golden Shoe winner for the 2016-17 campaign after scoring 37 goals.

The Argentina international claimed his first Golden Shoe award back in the 2009-10 season with 34 goals.

Messi collected his other two awards after scoring a whopping 50 goals in the 2011-12 campaign and 46 goals a season later.

Many feel the improved face of the woman is a far cry from what it actually looks like. 

Any man who falls in love with her enhanced face might receive the shock of his life after waking up beside her in the morning. 

This has been tagged the exact case of 'what you ordered for and what you got'.

Samuel Chukwueze: Barcelona Line Up Bid For Nigerian Star As Neymar's Alternative 

Samuel Chukwueze has become the latest transfer target for Barcelona if they fail to land Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain in January, reports claim.

According to Gol Digital, the Spanish champions are interested in signing the Villarreal winger to bolster their squad if they fail to get Neymar.

La Blaugrana have been on the heels of re-signing the Brazilian attacker from PSG since the last transfer window and the Camp Nou outfit are looking to bring in a new replacement.


And with Ousmane Dembele struggling with injuries and form since his summer move from Dortmund in 2017, Chukwueze looks like the right candidate to fill in the void. Villarreal recently placed a massive €63million buy-out clause on the Nigerian's contract which is a cheaper alternative to Neymar.

Ngige: Salaries, Allowances Of Political Office Holders Will Be Reviewed

The Federal Government has said it will soon review the wages of all political office holders.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said this during a visit by the Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) who came to congratulate him on his reappointment as a minister, on Tuesday in Abuja.

According to him, there was the need to review and streamline the wages and allowances given to political service holders, and the high wages earned by workers in certain government organisations.
“The last holistic wage review took place in 2011 and a new one is being planned. Government has put up the Presidential Committee on Salaries headed by the Minister of Finance and co-chaired by me,” he said.
He said the committee will look at the wage structure of the public service after the ‘consequential adjustment’ being done presently.

”There are people who earn 300 per cent of what others earn and they have the same degree. We may have people in NNPC, FIRS, Customs and others with third-class (degrees) earning 300 per cent more than the man with first-class in the ministry,” he said.

He said the committee was put in place to look at the different wage structures. ”We have 12 wage structures in Nigeria. We will beam our searchlight on them”.

“Revenue Mobilisation will also look at what is given to political office holders. What is a governor doing with hazard allowance? What hazard when the state is feeding him and his family? What is a governor doing with constituency allowance? The whole state is his constituency. These are what will be holistically reviewed,” he said.

Mr Ngige expressed shock that NULGE state chapters were not engaged in open negotiation with state governments and council chairmen on the issue of the National Minimum Wage Act.
Mr Ngige said the minimum wage is a national law of 2019 which should be obeyed by all states.

”We cannot allow the government to shut down the economy because it wants to pay salaries and wages,” he said.
2020 budget

Mr Ngige said the 2020 budget of N10.3 trillion has N3.8 trillion as personnel cost ”without overhead”.
”If you add running cost and other incidental costs, the total recurrent budget as presented to the National Assembly has taken 76 per cent. Where do we get the money to build roads, airport, rails, health centres, schools,” he said.

”It is a matter of balancing a budget that is 76 per cent recurrent and 24 per cent capital. For me, it is nothing to cheer about. In the 76 per cent, the government has captured N200 billion for consequential adjustment for the minimum wage and so on,” he said.

He said these are all part of personnel expenses. ”N160 billion is for consequential adjustment of the minimum wage and not total package of workers’ salaries. Everyone has to make sacrifice,” he added.

NULGE Reacts
Meanwhile, the National president, NULGE, Ibrahim Khaleel, raised concerns over the non-involvement of its members in any of the standing minimum wage negotiating councils in the country.
He said ”if NULGE cannot be made a member of any of the negotiating councils, another council should be created for the local government employees as recommended”.

“We believe we are having a lot of gaps in terms of our role of engagement with the government and our employers and this is very good machinery that we are praying and agitating that we will get it under your leadership, ” he said.

Mr Khaleel also raised concerns over the non-implementation of NULGE’s scheme of service in some states thereby leading to termination of service at grade 14 or 15.
He appealed to the federal government to address the injustice by calling on the state governments concerned to do the needful, was made known Via PremiumTimes
 Nigeria To Set Up Cancer Treatment Fund

Nigeria To Set Up Cancer Treatment Fund


 To reduce the burden of treating cancer, a terminal disease claiming over 40, 000 Nigerians yearly, the federal government is planning to roll out a cancer treatment fund, health minister, Osagie Ehanire, has said.
 Nigeria To Set Up Cancer Treatment Fund


To reduce the burden of treating cancer, a terminal disease claiming over 40, 000 Nigerians yearly, the federal government is planning to roll out a cancer treatment fund, health minister, Osagie Ehanire, has said.

“There will be a creation of a fund, either a cancer treatment fund or whatever we decide to call it. It is important and can be driven by investment or donation,” the minister said.

“It can be driven by any method that takes you beyond the point where health insurance cannot cover anymore in your treatment.”

The minister said this in response to a touching story on the painful battle against cancer shared by Serah Shimenenge Yugh, a breast cancer survivor, on Tuesday at the National Health Dialogue holding in Abuja.

Mr Ehanire and Ms Yugh were both panelists who discussed the topic, “Cancer control in Nigeria”.
Speaking first in the panel, the cancer survivor shared how she battled with the debilitating ailment without getting at least a free or subsidised cancer screening.

She said many cancer sufferers die needlessly because their conditions are mostly not diagnosed on time.
Ms Yugh appealed to the government to at least make cancer screening free.


Intervention
Speaking, the minister alluded to the need for early diagnosis.
“One thing about cancer is that early diagnosis is important and once you detect it, you have to start treatment immediately to avoid spread,” he noted.

The minister said apart from health insurance, the new funding plan on cancer will help reduce the cost of treatment and diagnosis.


He said the funding plan will also draw support from the private sector who will set up “treatment centres just as we have private sectors setting up dialysis centres in this same way.”
“Nobody needs to suffer financial burden in regaining their health when the society can provide treatments for those who need it. Those are the steps that the ministry will take.”

The official said the prevention of cancer is one of the best ways to avoid it.

The minister noted that one way to do that is by avoiding unhealthy habits that causes cancer.
Mr Ehanire stressed the need for proper awareness. He applauded Serah for being able to identify that she was having a cancerous growth timely.

The official appealed to health workers to have the index of suspicion in detecting cancer.
The minister said the Nigerian government placed taxes on alcohol and cigarette to reduce the chances of people getting cancer from such products and also derives funds for health interventions.
He said the Basic Health Care Provision Fund will begin to cover cancer.


Cancer In Nigeria
Earlier in February, the World Health Organisation said an estimated 116,000 new cases of cancer and 41,000 cancer-related deaths were recorded in Nigeria in 2018.
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide as new cases and deaths from the disease keep rising.

In Nigeria, the painful killer has continued to claim many due to high cost and inadequate radiotherapy treatment which has been the bane of cancer patients.

Radiotherapy is one of the key routines in the painful fight against cancer. A cancer patient often needs treatment at one point or the other. Experts say it is often better not to start it than to have a break in the sessions.

Today, Nigeria boasts of eight government-owned radiotherapy machines located in different areas in the country.
