The Senate hearing will be held twoweeks after SolicitorGeneral Jose Calida filed a quo warranto petition before the SupremeCourt seeking to revoke the franchise of ABS-CBN due to alleged foreignownership and bypassing of authority of the National TelecommunicationsCommission. Presidential spokesperson SalvadorPanelo said Duterte has “too many” work to do on the day of thescheduled hearing of the Senate Committee on Public Services on the matter. Panelo added that the Palace will notinterfere with the matters of the Senate, especially that its leadership hasdecided not to hold a session on Monday to make way for the ABS-CBN franchiserenewal hearing. “Trabaho ng SolGen ‘yan.Hayaan mo siyang gawin ang trabaho niya,” he said. Duterte has been vocal in the pastagainst the renewal of the franchise of ABS-CBN after the network supposedlydid not air a political advertisement that was already paid for during hispresidential bid in the 2016 elections. President Rodrigo Roa Duterte prepares to board a helicopter after gracing the inauguration of the Sangley Airport Development Project in Cavite City on February 15, 2020. PCOO “Hindiinteresado diyan si Presidente. Maraming trabaho si Presidente,”Panelo said. MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte isunlikely to monitor the proceedings of the Senate hearing on Monday regardingthe ABS-CBN franchise renewal issue, Malacañang said Sunday. Panelo, however, reiterated the Palace’sstatement that it has no take in the filing of the quo warranto petition. The TV network’s franchise is set toexpire on March 30, but the House Committee on Legislative Franchises has yetto hold a single hearing on the 11 bills seeking for the franchise’s renewal. House panel vice chair Tonypet Albano,nevertheless, said there was no direct pressure from Duterte in connection withthe pending bills on the ABS-CBN franchise renewal. (GMA News)
Tyson Fury has welcomed the prospect of facing Anthony Joshua in one of the “biggest fights in British boxing history” – and hopes it can be staged at Wembley next summer.The former heavyweight world champion stoked up his rivalry with Joshua this week by suggesting on social media that he will make a comeback like ring great Muhammad Ali for a showdown with ‘AJ’.Fury is waiting for a final ruling from UK-Anti-Doping on a suspended drugs ban and the British Boxing Board of Control are yet to be notified by his legal team about a new date for the hearing. But the 29-year-old is confident he will be cleared to end his long absence with a warm-up bout early next year, then take a massive fight with Joshua at the national stadium.“I’ve had two years out of the ring. Fat as a pig, hairy as an animal, but still as hungry as a lion,” Fury exclusively told Sky Sports. “You have two years out of the ring and it gives you that va-va-voom to get back in there and bust a few heads.“Do I need that many warm-ups? I don’t think so. Am I a 40-year-old? No, I’m 29. Still got a long time in boxing. I’m just so happy and excited to potentially be a part of one of the biggest fights in British boxing history.“People say, why do you think it’s that? I’m saying it because two unbeaten heavyweights, one unified champion, one lineal champion, both over six foot six tall, both over 18 stone. One nice guy, one bad man – it is what it is. I think the public are going to relish the thoughts of making this fight happen.“I think next summer is ideal and realistic. I’m not going to do it in February or March, because obviously I’m not in shape. But I’ll be back in shape by the time March, April comes around. Back ripped, looking sexy as ever. A couple of sun beds, a haircut and a shave, I’ll be back to my old self.”Fury was on the receiving end of disciplinary action from boxing’s governing bodies after making a string of controversial statements following his world title triumph against Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.He now intends to focus his attention purely on the sport, if he starts a second reign as world champion in 2018.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
