Rashid Sidek, a member of the team that won the 1992 Thomas Cup. Believes BAM has called up the strongest players for the prestigious biennial championship.

“I think this is the strongest and most balanced squad. And because the Badminton World Federation has allowed countries to name a maximum of 12 players. I said just do it. With Yew Sin/Ee Yi in the squad. We have three formidable partners. Zii Jia is in good form. And playing Daren as the second single gives a better chance for our third single to score a point as well.” said Rashid.

List of Players

Andy Ruiz Jr Faces Tyrone Spong On July 16

Andy Ruiz Jr Faces Tyrone Spong On July 16

Andy Ruiz Jr. Faces Tyrone Spong On July 16th. Boxing News Andy Ruiz Jr will return to the ring after a 14-month absence to face 36-year-old Tyrone Spong in a 10-round bout in the main pay-per-view event at Plaza de Toros, Mexico City, Mexico. This is a Triller Fight Club event. Latest Sports News, Spong is one of those unknown fighters that fans on Google need to find out who this guy is. It’s troubling that Ruiz and his management have chosen to take on Spong as their next opponent rather than a top contender, but it also points to the direction of the former champion’s career. Ruiz’s career has stalled since his loss to Anthony Joshua in 2019, and it’s unlikely he will be able to start over.

It was clear that Ruiz was playing it safe, waiting for the world title shot to fall into his lap by the force of gravity. Rather than get off his back and work for it as the other competitors do. Ruiz took a lazy approach to get another world title chance. But that might be the only way he’s going to get another chance. At this point, it was doubtful that Ruiz would beat any of the quality heavyweights in the top ten. You can’t pitch Ruiz with the likes of Joe Joyce, Filip Hrgovic, Daniel Dubois, Frank Sanchez, or Tony Yoka. And hope he emerges with arms raised in victory. It’s a questionable decision for organizers to put Ruiz-Spong on pay-per-view. Because it’s not a pay-per-view fight. From a logical point of view, Ruiz will have to fight elite heavyweights like Anthony Joshua, Oleksandr Usyk, or Tyson Fury to fight in pay-per-view.

Confront the Old Fakum Boxer Spong

Facing an obscure heavyweight Spong is a recipe for disaster for PPV. Spong hasn’t fought in nearly three years since 2019, and he’s not a well-known name. Even with hardcore boxing fans. Of course, Ruiz’s management could find someone better than this for him to fight. If the idea was to make Ruiz win long enough. Until one of the heavyweight champions gave him a world title chance in volunteer defense. It made sense to match him against a weak opponent. That’s likely the reason why Ruiz’s promoter matched him with subpar opposition. He would eventually be given the chance of a world title. Because he has a lot of fans in the US and Mexico. One other benefit that Ruiz has on his side is that he is not a risky fight for any champion.

So they have nothing to fear in defending their title against him. Ruiz, who hails from California, is about to undergo knee surgery, which is why he’s been out of the ring for a long time. Ruiz recently excited his fans by asking them questions on social media. Do they want to see him fight Luis Ortiz next? Unsurprisingly, the response was overwhelmingly positive to the fight. It is not clear why Ruiz’s management chose to match him against Spong over top contenders such as Ortiz, Frank Sanchez, Joe Joyce or Daniel Dubois.

#5 WBC, #5 WBO, #9 IBF, #11 WBA Ruiz has made no secret of his desire to fight a trilogy with Anthony Joshua. But, sadly, ‘The Destroyer’ has not done much since losing his three titles to the British fighter in their rematch in December 2019.

“But if I am Mo Salah, I have to ask for what I deserve. He will not come close to the earnings of Neymar, Lionel Messi, and Kylian Mbappe, although his pace is now on par with them. He wants to be paid what he deserves. He is the top scorer in the Premier League.
