Pacquiao conqueror Jeff Horn contemplating ring retirement

first_img Jeff Horn has been encouraged to retire after the former world champion was beaten by Tim Tszyu in a super-welterweight bout.Three years after beating Manny Pacquiao at a packed Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, the Australian said he felt relief Wednesday when the official stopped their bout ahead of the ninth round.Horn didn’t officially end his career after the loss, but knows it will be difficult for him to convince his wife and two daughters that the best decision is to fight on after his third loss from his last five bouts.“I’ll go home and talk to (wife) Jo but I know what she’s going to say,” he said. “In the end, I have to ask if I have more in the tank or is that it. I probably don’t have the hunger of Tim Tszyu. I’ve been there, done the world title, I was just fighting for the big fights and the mountain was too big for me tonight.”Tim Tszyu is the son of former world champion and Russian-born Kostya Tszyu.Horn’s promoter Dean Lonergan suggested the time was right for former school teacher Horn to retire.“I think tonight would be a nice full stop,” Lonergan said of the 32-year-old Horn’s career. “The baton I think’s been passed.”Horn had dropped a weight division and entered the Townsville stadium bout in north Queensland full of confidence, but it didn’t take long for Tszyu to assume control. Horn was knocked down in the third and sixth rounds and referee Phil Austin stopped the contest after eight rounds.“He was very good; he made me look silly out there,” Horn said of Tszyu. “It was more of a relief than anything that the referee was saying he’d seen enough.”Image credits: AP First Published: 27th August, 2020 06:12 IST FOLLOW US SUBSCRIBE TO US Associated Press Television News COMMENTcenter_img Written By Last Updated: 27th August, 2020 06:12 IST Pacquiao Conqueror Jeff Horn Contemplating Ring Retirement Jeff Horn has been encouraged to retire after the former world champion was beaten by Tim Tszyu in a super-welterweight bout WATCH US LIVE LIVE TVlast_img read more

San Antonio Texas USA – Emivest Aerospaces larg

first_imgSan Antonio, Texas, USA – Emivest Aerospace’s largest distributor, Action Aviation, is on hand at this year’s EBACE representing the factory, along with Action Aviation chairman Hamish Harding’s own SJ30 on display just in front of the entrance steps to the EBACE static display.Since the acquisition was announced at NBAA last year, Emivest has provided the necessary planning and capital to improve dramatically the company’s production line and manufacturing processes. Emivest Aerospace is committed to increasing the SJ30 production rate significantly over the next two years and to restructuring the company to improve its build efficiencies.Joe Gullion, Chief Operating Officer of Emivest Aerospace, commented “We are proud to be able to display at EBACE 2009 what must surely be the best performing light jet in the world. We are especially pleased to increase our visibility in the European market now that we are making real progress on ramping up the SJ30 production line. We are busy at the factory completing the necessary steps on the production line to allow us to meet all our contracted customer deliveries. This progress can be seen with SJ30 serial number 008 as we are about to do the first flight of this first customer SJ30 to be delivered since the acquisition of the company. In addition, we have been hard at work developing our customer service programs to support these early deliveries”.Hamish Harding, Emivest’s first SJ30 customer in Europe, adds “The SJ30 jet is a joy to fly. With the high-speed cruise of 486 kts (Mach 0.83), a range of 2,500 nautical miles and an operating ceiling of 49,000 feet, the SJ30 jet has truly exceptional performance for a light jet. The sea-level cabin all the way to 41,000 ft also means that pilots and passengers are not as tired from the effects of jet lag as we would be on a long journey in any other business jet”.www.emivestaerospace.comlast_img read more
