John Wick: Chapter 4 gets an impressive score on Rotten Tomatoes!

The highly anticipated John Wick: Chapter 4 has received its first reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, earning a “fresh” rating and maintaining the consistent critical acclaim of the fan-favorite action franchise, which stars Keanu Reeves.

The movie is set to be released widely on March 24th and will continue the story from the previous installment, where John Wick found himself on the run from the assassin brotherhood he was once a part of, receiving help from a network of dangerous characters, including Laurence Fishburne’s Bowery King.

The franchise began with a low-budget action movie but quickly expanded into a successful film series, with a television tie-in. Currently, with 26 critic reviews, John Wick: Chapter 4 has an 88% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which may change as more early reviews are published. The first John Wick movie has the lowest Rotten Tomatoes rating in the franchise at 86%, while both previous sequels share the highest score of 89%. Chapter 4 debuted at 86%, rising to 90% at one point, before dropping slightly, so it could fall anywhere between the top and bottom of the franchise by the time it’s released to audiences.

In a 2022 interview with a magazine, director Stahelski described the movie as a blend of The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, Zatoichi, and Greek mythology, saying “who else f—ing says those kinds of sentences? Now you know why I like doing John Wicks.” He also shared that the team was cautious not to repeat the formula that worked in the previous movies, resulting in multiple storylines and a more epic feel to the fourth installment.

In the highly anticipated fourth installment of the John Wick series, our titular hero faces his most formidable foes yet. As the bounty on his head continues to soar, Wick embarks on a global mission to take on the powerful players of the underworld. From New York to Paris, and Osaka to Berlin, Wick fights to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds against the High Table.

The star-studded cast includes Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick, Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins, and Ian McShane.

John Wick: Chapter 4 will hit theaters on March 24, with IMAX screenings available in select markets.

Jon Jones emerges as the new heavyweight champion after defeating Ciryl Gane in his return to the UFC

In his comeback fight and heavyweight debut, Jon Jones made it seem effortless.

Jon Jones, also known as ‘Bones’, claimed the title of heavyweight champion of the world in a swift victory over Ciryl Gane during the UFC 285 main event held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

After a low blow at the start of the fight, the former two-time light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, swiftly took down Ciryl Gane and began working on submissions. Within a little over two minutes, Jones secured a tap from the Frenchman and became a two-weight UFC champion, solidifying his status as the greatest of all time after years of debate.

During his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, the emotional 35-year-old expressed his excitement, saying,

“I’ve been working on this for a long time. You know, a lot of people thought I was never coming back but I’ve been faithful to my goal and mission.”

Jones then expressed an interest in fighting former two-time heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, to whom he has been heavily linked, in July.

“Y’all want to see me beat up Stipe? One thing I know about the UFC is we give the fans what they want to see,” he added.

“I hope you’re training, Stipe Miocic, my guy. You’re the greatest heavyweight of all time, and that’s what I want. I want you so bad,” said Jones, expressing his desire to fight the former two-time heavyweight champion.

Miocic hasn’t fought since his knockout loss to Francis Ngannou at UFC 260 in March 2021, and the 40-year-old was previously hoping to face Jones in 2021, but the fight fell through, and Jones ended up fighting Gane instead.

Now, with Jones winning the heavyweight title, it appears that both fighters are ready to face each other in the summer.

UFC 285 Face-Offs: Jon Jones and Ciryl Gane’s Intense Staredown Ahead of Title Fight

Ahead of their highly anticipated heavyweight bout, Jon Jones and Ciryl Gane came face-to-face for the first time.

MMA enthusiasts have eagerly awaited the heavyweight title bout between Jon Jones and Ciryl Gane, scheduled to take place at UFC 285 in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Fans were thrilled to see Jones move up in weight to challenge the former interim champion.

During the pre-fight press conference at the KA Theater at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Thursday night, the two competitors had the chance to size each other up. The heated exchange of verbal jabs between them was met with immense enthusiasm from the crowd.

Moments after the press conference ended, Jones approached Gane with an intense look of determination, causing UFC president Dana White to intervene and place the vacant title belt between them. However, Jones disregarded the strap and pushed it away in order to come face-to-face with Gane and engage in a powerful stare-down.

Mike Perry angered Jake Paul’s coach by sharing a “fake script” outlining his bout with Tommy Fury.

Mike Perry, the former UFC luminary, was present to substitute in case Tommy Fury withdrew.

Mike Perry disclosed that he received a furious message from Jake Paul’s coach following his publication of a fabricated script detailing the Tommy Fury fight.

Having inked a contract to compete against Paul, the ex-UFC fighter served as the reserve challenger for the affair in Saudi Arabia last weekend, although he was ultimately not needed, as the former Love Island star scored a big win, earning a split-decision victory.

Despite not squaring off against ‘The Problem Child’, Perry caused a stir by sharing a fictitious script for the Paul vs. Fury bout on social media.

He took into Twitter a controversial paper that listed how the fight would play out, accompanied with the caption: “What’s happening?”

The document outlined that Paul would enter the ring dressed as a baby and inflict a severe eye injury on Fury before clinching a TKO victory in the eighth round. Additionally, the ‘script’ proposed that Paul would challenge KSI in his post-fight celebrations, and it was shared so extensively that the event’s promoters had to issue a statement. They informed The Sun, “We can confirm it’s a fake.”

At the Diriyah Arena on Sunday, Fury took control of the narrative by skillfully outmaneuvering Paul across eight rounds and clinching a split-decision victory. With this win, he improved his unbeaten record to 9-0 and secured a position in the WBC rankings.

Perry has now disclosed that he was not the author of the script, despite publicizing it on Twitter, where it was shared almost 3000 times and reached an audience of 6.5 million people.

“It was an Instagram post I think my buddy sent me,” he told TMZ Sports.

“I posted it on Twitter, and it’s likely my best tweet to date. It received a lot of attention. People talked a lot of trash about me for it. “

The 31-year-old fighter also revealed that he received an irate message from someone on Paul’s team, but he was unfazed because the former Disney actor had previously leaked footage of one of their sparring sessions.

Perry went on to say, “Jake’s coach messaged me, upset about his reputation. But I was thinking, well, Jake didn’t care about my reputation when he posted a video of what I said to him during practice.”

The bare-knuckle boxer has already turned his attention away from a prospective match against ‘The Problem Child’ since he has secured a bout with former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold on April 29.

Perry is slated to headline a Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship event that includes a clash between Chad Mendes and Eddie Alvarez, both of whom were defeated by Conor McGregor in UFC title bouts.

Eddie Alvarez Predicts McGregor’s Victory over Chandler by KO as “Mismatch”

According to Eddie Alvarez, Michael Chandler is in for a rough night against Conor McGregor in their upcoming fight later this year.

The two are currently filming The Ultimate Fighter as coaches. Despite McGregor’s long layoff after shattering his leg against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, Alvarez predicts a difficult night for Chandler.

“If I had to guess, Mike Chandler doesn’t wrestle,” Alvarez said on The MMA Hour. “If he stands with Conor, Conor’s going to knock him out. It’s a mismatch. Mike Chandler’s defense sucks. He doesn’t have good defense or boxing. He throws bombs, but Conor’s way too fast and quick to get hit with anything Chandler is throwing. So, if Chandler doesn’t wrestle quickly and use that to his advantage, it’s going to be a bad night for him.”

Eddie Alvarez has a personal history with both McGregor and Chandler. He infamously lost his UFC lightweight title to McGregor at UFC 205, and he had a couple of memorable fights with Chandler for the Bellator lightweight championship in 2011 and 2013.

These bouts are still considered some of the best fights of Alvarez’s career, and fans have been hoping for a trilogy fight between the two fighters for years. After his departure from ONE Championship last year, it seemed like the fans’ wish would come true, but Alvarez ended up signing with BKFC.

He puts the blame on Chandler for the trilogy fight not happening.

Logan Paul doubts if Tommy Fury can call his victory against Jake Paul a win and declares his intention to avenge his brother’s defeat.

Over the weekend, Fury defeated Jake by a split decision. On Monday morning, the American social media star and his brother Logan filmed a reaction video.

In the video, Logan raises a question about Fury’s satisfaction with his method of victory over Jake, as he secured a split decision win instead of a knockout victory. Logan can be heard saying,

“Congrats to the Furys, but did Tommy really win? Technically, yeah, but are you going to celebrate that? You were supposed to knock out this YouTuber, and it took you eight rounds to drop him. Congrats, but are you satisfied? As a boxer, I don’t know if that would satisfy me. You got it on paper, congrats, but you celebrated like you won the World Cup.”

It’s a valid point to criticize Fury for this, as he had previously stated in an interview with Boxing Scene that knocking out Jake wouldn’t be a significant accomplishment for him. He said, “When I knock him out, it’s not really gonna mean a whole heap to me. I mean, I’ve knocked out a YouTuber. Everybody expects me to do that anyway. You know, it’s not like I’ve knocked out a reigning, defending world champion and I’m the new world champion. I’m fighting Jake Paul. He’s got six fights. He’s coming off a YouTuber background. I am expected to win this fight. So, I’m not gonna be jumping for joy when I knock him out because I know I was gonna do this all along.”

Later in the video, Jake expressed his desire to have a rematch with Fury as his top priority, aiming to avenge his only loss in his professional career.

Logan also chimed in, saying, “If you don’t, I’d like to handle that. That was my first instinct, obviously.” However, Logan’s mother, revealed that in the immediate aftermath of Jake’s loss, Logan said, “I’m going to kill that kid.”

“It’s my little brother, f*** that,” Logan responded, before taking a shot at Fury, saying: “Inflatable arm a** motherf***er, f*** you.”

Exhibition match between Floyd Mayweather and Aaron Chalmers sees Mayweather waltzing to an easy victory

  • Floyd Mayweather took part in an unofficial eight-round boxing exhibition with reality TV star Aaron Chalmers
  • Floyd Mayweather boxed in an exhibition at a largely empty arena in London.
  • The underwhelming attendance at the event may indicate a decline in public interest in Mayweather’s ongoing world tour.

Floyd Mayweather’s latest exhibition match against reality TV star Aaron Chalmers at London’s O2 Arena failed to deliver the excitement and intensity that fans have come to expect from the boxing legend. While the fight lasted eight rounds, it was clear that Mayweather was not putting in his best effort, and the match was more about entertainment and showmanship than competitive boxing.

Despite Chalmers being a trained fighter with experience in MMA and boxing, he was unable to land any significant blows on Mayweather. This was a marked difference from Mayweather’s exhibition matches in Japan, where opponents actually attempted to hit him, and managed to do so on a few occasions.

Mayweather, who celebrated his 46th birthday the day before the fight, showed few signs of slowing down, effortlessly evading Chalmers’ punches and dancing around the ring. However, the lack of competition and the obvious non-competitive nature of the match resulted in a disappointing number of empty seats at the O2 Arena.

It’s important to note that Mayweather does not invest much time in promoting these exhibition matches, instead relying on his well-established reputation and name recognition to attract fans. While this tactic has worked in the past, it remains to be seen how long fans will continue to pay for these events.

Overall, Mayweather’s exhibition tour has had its ups and downs, with some matches being thrilling and competitive, while others have fallen flat. While the allure of watching one of the greatest boxers of all time in the ring is still present, fans may soon grow weary of paying to see him fight opponents who are clearly outmatched.

Shihan Roberto Hernandez-Velez

It started in Miami with a glass storefront window and a man wearing “white pajamas.” Reeling from the recent death of his mother, the future Shihan Roberto Hernandez-Velez, then aged 10, stumbled upon a school of martial arts and was taken by what he saw. “A few weeks after my mother’s passing, I was walking back and forth to school and I saw this big, huge storefront with a glass window on it and then I saw like a Buddha on the wall and I kind of wondered what all of that was about,” says Hernandez. “All of a sudden, I see this guy coming to the curtains with the white pajamas; back then I didn’t know what it was, and a black belt holding on to it. And I just got curious as to why this guy was coming out in pajamas.” In learning the significance behind the man in the window, young Hernandez found a pathway out of the depths of despair and a source of constant and continuing comfort. On August 23, 1961, Roberto Hernandez-Velez was born in Miami, Florida. His father abandoned the family when Hernandez was three-years-old and he grew very close to his mother. When she passed away, he was devastated; both of his parents were gone. It was in this context of grieving, burdened by the sense of loss and searching for answers that Hernandez encountered the school storefront. At the time, he was also watching episodes of The Green Hornet starring Bruce Lee. The ideas began to align. “I was wondering why this little guy, this small guy, was beating up on everybody. And that kind of relates to when I saw this guy in the glass window and storefront, that it was martial arts.”

For a young man questioning why his mother died, the arts offered solace. “I needed some sort of comfort, some guidance and peace in my heart to understand why my mother passed away and I needed to get an outlet for how I really started to feel within myself,” says Hernandez. “Losing my father and then my mother passing away, not realizing that my whole life was going to change then, I chose to see this art as a way of life for me.” Soon after, with his father a no-show, his aunt adopted his family and took him to Puerto Rico, but not before he was able to use the money he made from selling sodas to obtain his own pair of “white pajamas.” When he left for Puerto Rico, he took his new Keikogi (uniform) along with him. Hernandez continued his pursuit of the arts by watching movies and practicing what he saw. In 1975, the family moved back to Miami. Hernandez would often come home late in the evenings because he had spent his time after-school peering in the windows of martial arts schools, fueling his passion. The following year, he began training in Chinese Goju, studying in Miami with Ruben Font, a student of the legendary Gogen “The Cat” Yamaguchi.
