first_imgWembley is affectionately known as ‘The Home of Football’ in England, but the stadium has played host to a number of other sports, including boxing.Fighters such as Carl Froch, George Groves, Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko have practiced the sweet science at the London venue.Indeed, it has become somewhat of a home for Joshua, whose last two bouts – against Klitscko and Alexander Povetkin – took place there. Wembley is in near-constant use through next April, May and June, with Joshua scheduled for another fight at the ground in April, which would probably rule it out for a fight between Fury and Wilder.However, with a capacity of 90,000, the appeal for promoters and fans is clear.Staples Center, Los AngelesWhile all the speculation has centred around potential venues in England, it is possible that the Staples Center in Los Angeles could be used again.The capacity of 20,000 means that it would hold considerably fewer people, but the design of the Staples Center means that it is a much more intimate arena. As such, it’s looking like a rematch is definitely in store as the fighters look to remove any remaining doubts as to who is the better boxer.As the details get ironed out, Goal takes a look at what we know about the Fury vs Wilder rematch.Who won the first Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder fight?There was no clear winner in the fight, with the judges returning a split-decision draw verdict.What that means is that one judge scored the fight in favour of Wilder, one scored it in favour of Fury and the other scored it as a draw.It was the first draw of both fighters’ careers, with each of them remaining undefeated.Judges’ scoringJudgeFinal score (Fury-Wilder)Alejandro Rochin111-115Phil Edwards113-113Robert Tapper114-112Mexican judge Alejandro Rochin scored the fight in favour of Wilder, while Canadian Robert Tapper felt that Fury had the edge. British judge Phil Edwards could not separate the two.The judges’ scoring drew criticism from a number of figures within boxing, with former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis arguing that Fury won the bout.”They need to get some good judges, these judges were terrible,” Lewis said on BT Sport. Getty Images Getty Images Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder was years in the making, but when the titans eventually collided, they cancelled each other out – officially at least.The fight, which saw the WBC heavyweight title go on the line, yielded a consensus that told of how ‘boxing won’, but controversy raged in the aftermath. Getty Images “It happened to me and I knew it was going to happen to him. Everybody could see who won. Boxing definitely won and Tyson Fury won the fight to me.”But that’s why you’ve got to go in and try and knock the other person out, especially if you’re not on home soil. You’ve got to make your fists be the judges.”Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, was unequivocal about his view on the matter, suggesting that Rochin “got it terribly wrong.”“I thought Tyson won it by at least three rounds,” Warren said. “How the judge gave it the way he gave it I do not know, terrible.”When is the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder rematch?Given the contentious nature of the result, both fighters are eager for an immediate rematch in order to set the record straight.However, while the desire from both camps to fight again is not in question, it remains unclear as to when exactly such a match will take place.Wilder is believed to be willing to take a rematch as soon as March or April 2019, but the turnaround for those dates would appear to be too soon for promoters.Fury, meanwhile, has hinted that he would like to see the rematch take place in the summer, which would allow a few extra months for preparation and promotion.Where will the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder rematch be held? Getty Images Getty Images Home of one of England’s most successful clubs, Manchester United, Old Trafford will ostensibly be free for use during the summer following the conclusion of the 2018-19 season.The stadium, which holds roughly 75,000 people, is one of the biggest sporting venues in the UK and has hosted boxing in the past. The 1993 super-middleweight unification bout between Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn, which attracted a crowd of over 40,000, took place at the ground.Recently, it was mooted as a potential venue for an Anthony Joshua’s fight against Alexander Povetkin, which ultimately took place at Wembley Stadium in London.Emirates Stadium, London As soon as the draw was confirmed talk turned to a rematch and Fury was in no doubt about where he wants to trade blows with Wilder. “I said to Frank Warren… he said ‘Arsenal’ and I said ‘no, let’s have it at Old Trafford!'” Fury later told BT Sport while in attendance at Manchester United’s game against Arsenal. “Hopefully we can have it here in the summer.”#WilderFury rematch at Old Trafford next summer? 👀🍿That’s what @Tyson_Fury wants!”@frankwarren_tv said Arsenal…I said Old Trafford!”🎙 @DesKellyBTS— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) December 5, 2018With the first fight being held in the United States – Wilder’s native country – all the signs point to the rematch being held in the United Kingdom, which would serve the pre-fight narrative well.A number of venues have been suggested, but there has been no solid indication yet as to where it will take place.We’ve taken a look at some possible venues below.Old Trafford, Manchester While Fury clearly wants Old Trafford, Warren appears to favour the home of Arsenal, London’s Emirates Stadium, much to the chagrin of the Manchester United supporter.Warren himself is an Arsenal fan, which may explain his insistence on the Emirates as a venue for the rematch.The Gunners’ ground hosts around 60,000 spectators and has been touted as a potential venue for a number of fights in the past, including some involving the likes of Ricky Hatton and James DeGale.Wembley Stadium, London How to watch Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder rematchWith details still being established, we do not know exactly which networks will be broadcasting the rematch.The first fight was shown live on pay-per-view by Showtime in the US and BT Sport Box Office in the UK and Ireland.It was available to stream live online on DAZN in Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland.last_img read more

Country Cultura RM/Alamy Stock Photo The objects and people children play with as early as toddlerhood may provide clues to their eventual sexual orientation, reveals the largest study of its kind. The investigation, which tracked more than 4500 kids over the first 15 years of their lives, seeks to answer one of the most controversial questions in the social sciences, but experts are mixed on the findings.“Within its paradigm, it’s one of the better studies I’ve seen,” says Anne Fausto-Sterling, professor emerita of biology and gender studies at Brown University. The fact that it looks at development over time and relies on parents’ observations is a big improvement over previous studies that attempted to answer similar questions based on respondents’ own, often unreliable, memories, she says. “That being said … they’re still not answering questions of how these preferences for toys or different kinds of behaviors develop in the first place.”The new study builds largely on research done in the 1970s by American sex and gender researcher Richard Green, who spent decades investigating sexuality. He was influential in the development of the term “gender identity disorder” to describe stress and confusion over one’s sex and gender, though the term—and Green’s work more broadly—has come under fire from many psychologists and social scientists today who say it’s wrong to label someone’s gender and sexuality “disordered.” Click to view the privacy policy.

By Michael PriceMar. 10, 2017 , 10:30 AM Toddler play may give clues to sexual orientation In the decades since, other studies have reported that whether a child plays along traditional gender lines can predict their later sexual orientation. But these have largely been criticized for their small sample sizes, for drawing from children who exhibit what the authors call “extreme” gender nonconformity, and for various other methodological shortcomings.Seeking to improve on this earlier research, Melissa Hines, a psychologist at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, turned to data from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children. The study includes thousands of British children born in the 1990s. Parents observed and reported various aspects of their children’s behavior, which Hines and her Cambridge colleague, Gu Li, analyzed for what they call male-typical or female-typical play.An example of stereotypical male-typical play, as defined by the study, would include playing with toy trucks, “rough-and-tumble” wrestling, and playing with other boys. Female-typical play, on the other hand, would include dolls, playing house, and playing with other girls.Hines and Li looked at parental reporting of children’s play at ages 2.5, 3.5, and 4.75 years old, and arranged them on a scale of one to 100, with lower scores meaning more female-typical play and higher scores more male-typical play. They then compared those results to the participants’ self-reported responses as teenagers to a series of internet-administered questions about their sexuality.Beginning with the 3.5-year-old age group, the team found that children who engaged mostly in “gender-conforming” play (boys who played with trucks and girls who played with dolls, as an example) were likely to report being heterosexual at age 15, whereas the teenagers who reported being gay, lesbian, or not strictly heterosexual were more likely to engage in “gender-nonconforming” play. The same pattern held true when they expanded the teenagers’ choices to a five-point spectrum ranging from 100% heterosexual to 100% homosexual.Teens who described themselves as lesbian scored on average about 10 points higher on the gender-play scale at age 4.75 (meaning more stereotypically male play) than their heterosexual peers, and teens who described themselves as gay men scored about 10 points lower on the scale than their peers, the researchers report in Developmental Psychology. Questions of transgender identity were not addressed in the study.“I think it’s remarkable that childhood gender-typed behavior measured as early as age 3.5 years is associated with sexual orientation 12 years later,” wrote Li in an email. “The findings help us to understand variability in sexual orientation and could have implications for understanding the origins of this variability.”The paper “is just a well-done study in terms of getting around some of the problems that have plagued the field,” says Simon LeVay, a retired neuroscientist whose 1991 paper in Science sparked interest in brain differences associated with sexual identity. “It shows that something is going on really early in life and points away from things like role modeling and adolescent experiences as reasons for becoming gay.”Others dispute the paper’s methods and significance. Parents’ own beliefs and biases about gender almost certainly influence how they described their children’s gendered play, which could skew their reporting, says Patrick Ryan Grzanka, a psychologist who studies sexuality and multicultural issues at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. But more worrisome to him are the cultural assumptions underlying the study itself. The authors appear to regard gender nonconformity as the primary marker of gayness, which doesn’t align with current research suggesting that your individual preferences for either stereotypically male or female behaviors and traits has little to do with your sexual orientation, he says.Grzanka is also dismayed that the paper fails to critique the history of similar research that investigated whether childhood behaviors lined up with eventual sexual orientation. It wasn’t long ago that such research was used to stigmatize and pathologize gender-nonconforming children, he says. “I think it’s important to ask why we’re so invested in this purported link [between gender conformity and sexuality] in the first place.”*Correction, 13 March, 12:19 p.m.: An earlier version of this incorrectly asserted that Richard Green and Melissa Hines are life partners.last_img read more
