Canelo, Triple G and Oscar De La Hoya Are Hyping Up Their Fight So Mayweather Vs. McGregor Doesn’t Steal Their Thunder

The highly anticipated fight between Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez and Genaddy “GGG” Golovkin is still a few months away — it’s scheduled for September 16 in Las Vegas — but the two fighters are already making the rounds to promote their fight. Most likely prompted by the hype created after the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight announcement, Álvarez, Golovkin and Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya appeared on ESPN’s “First Take” to discuss the upcoming fight. Here’s what went down:

“First Take” Co-Host Max Kellerman asked Golovkin, who is 35, if he’s slowing down at all. Golovkin said “no.”

Kellerman asked: “Are you the same fighter you were five years ago?” GGG’s response: “The same. I feel great. Like 25 years old.”

Kellerman then asked Canelo what he thought about GGG being the “hardcore fans’ favorite fighter.”

Canelo said he wasn’t fazed by it at all: “Cada quien tiene sus fans, yo los mios. Yo todavia estoy haciendo mi historia. Tengo 26 años y no me molesta. Cada quien tiene lo suyo (Everyone has their fans. I have mine. I’m still writing my history. I’m 26 years old and it doesn’t bother me. Everyone has their own thing).”

Canelo then responded to those who felt he was “ducking” a fight with GGG.

Canelo said he was annoyed at the accusations, but said he would use it to motivate him in the fight: “Since the age of 15 I haven’t been afraid of anyone. I’ve fought with everyone.”

Co-host Stephen A. Smith asked De La Hoya what he thinks about the upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather and MMA fighter Conor McGregor.

The former champ said the Mayweather and McGregor fight was just a show. “This fight is the real fight. This is the middleweight fight the fans have been clamoring for, for a long time,” said De La Hoya.

Then, Smith cut to the chase: he asked GGG and Canelo if they disliked each other. GGG smiled and joked, “Sometimes.”

Canelo said he has no personal beef with GGG, but emphasized that he’s “obsessed” with fighting him and beating him.

Oscar De La Hoya, who was translating for Canelo, took a few liberties with his translations and YouTube commenters noticed.

It was clear that De La Hoya was more focused on promoting that translating.

Oh, GGG also made an appearance on Univision Radio’s “El Bueno, La Mala y El Feo” show. They tried to get the Kazakh fighter to sing “El Rey” in Spanish, but he couldn’t really do it. He made up for it by doing a little dance:

Demi Tweeted That ‘One Day, She’d Sing The National Anthem At The Super Bowl’ And Guess Who’s Singing This Year

Demi Lovato announced that she will be singing the national anthem at Super Bowl LIV, so it’s safe to say that her year is off to a pretty good start. But what’s even more interesting though, is that somehow, someone unearthed a tweet from 2010 in which the singer said she would “one day” sing the national at the Super Bowl —and we’re obsessed with this full-circle moment, but also a little bit creeped out tbh.

2020 is looking pretty good for Demi Lovato so far. 

The singer is making a pretty big comeback with, not just one, but two MAJOR performances, back to back.

Just a week ago, she announced that she’ll be performing at the Grammy Awards on January 26.

The announcement of her upcoming performance came just a few weeks after the singer teased “the next time you hear from me, I’ll be singing” back in December.

The star will make her much anticipated return to the spotlight later this month. 

Demi announced that she’ll be performing at the 62nd Grammy Awards later this month, via instagram. “I told you the next time you’d hear from me I’d be singing.” The Recording Academy also confirmed Lovato’s participation shortly after her announcement. And that’s not the only thing Demi has —manifested— into action.

We don’t know what type of brujería she worked but Demi truly predicted this.

PopCrave recently unearthed a 2010 tweet from Demi in which she accurately predicted her Super Bowl performance —a full decade before she’s slated to take the stage. “One day I’m gonna sing the national anthem at a Super Bowl,” Demi wrote ten years ago, adding: “Onnnee dayyy….” —brujería, I tell you.

The singer, who’s been in self-care mode since her 2018 overdose, announced she’ll be singing the national anthem at Super Bowl LIV next month.

Demi’s idea of “taking it slow” took an interesting turn after this announcement.  She is now slated to perform at the the same annual Super Bowl —the same low key event that Nielsen says drew an audience of 98.2 million people in the United States and sparked 32.3 million social media interactions last year. No biggie. 

The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer will be joining a roster of A-list stars at the Super Bowl this year. 

The iconic half time performance is in the hands of two Latinx queens. Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, are headlining the show. And now it’s J.Lo, Shakira, and Demi. And we already can’t wait to watch these Latinas rock the show.

Demi’s fans have been quick to show their support and excitement for her upcoming gigs. 

The 27-year-old has publicly struggled with sobriety and was treated for a drug overdose in July 2018. A globally viewed Grammy performance, and Super Bowl appearance, are quite ambitious undertakings for someone who has stayed out of the spotlight for some time. But her fans’ support might’ve been what encouraged her to get back in the game. 

Team Demi is with her all the way…

YOU’RE REALLY FEEDING US OMG WE DONT DESERVE,” one fan tweeted after the singer announced her Super Bowl appearance. Another wrote: “So happy for you Demi… I’m excited for you for 2020 it’s your year to shine brighter than the sun… you f*cking rock!!!!”

A Ring Camera Captured A Man’s Valiant Effort To Save A Mother And Her Daughters From A House Fire

A Ring Camera Captured A Man’s Valiant Effort To Save A Mother And Her Daughters From A House Fire

It was the middle of the night and Gladys Castañeda and her daughters were sound asleep as their next-door neighbor’s home went up in flames. Across the road, a neighbor noticed the flames and that the Castañeda’s weren’t outside, watching with the rest of the block. Ty Byers decided to take action and rush across the street towards the flames to alert the Castañeda’s to the impending danger. Ring doorbell video footage shows another neighbor, Amanda Smith, running over, desperately asking if they’ve gotten out yet. Both start yelling and banging on the windows and the door. All the while, Gladys thought someone was trying to break into their home. Using the Ring doorbell, she asked, “Can I help you?”

Once Byers realized she had the two-way speaker technology, he looks straight into the camera to shout, “The house next door to you is on fire! Your house is almost on fire!” Byers waited and helped run each of Glady’s daughters to safety while Gladys got prepared to abandon her home.

The Ring doorbell footage has since gone viral, and Gladys wants to shout Byer’s heroic efforts from all the virtual rooftops.

The fire that nearly engulfed her Mesa, Arizona home was sparked in the early hours of July 26, 2019. Byers was new to the neighborhood, and she didn’t know him that well, but he still showed up as a model neighbor citizen. Even though the incident happened last summer, the video has been recirculating. Gladys admits that not even her closest friends knew about the near-death experience because she didn’t want to share the video out of “respect to my neighbors.” Now, she’s had a change of heart. “I didn’t want to put them out there like that but the more I think about it, why shouldn’t I? What they did was amazing,” Castañeda shared to Facebook. Now, she’s asking if people can help her share the video as an example of heroism.

Castañeda was too afraid to go to the door, thinking robbers were causing a distraction to break into her home. With two young daughters, she didn’t know what to do but use the two-way speaker system on her smart doorbell to get more information. “Can I help you?” she asked over the intercom. After Byers shouts into the intercom, “The house next to you is on fire! Your house is almost on fire!” Castañeda responds, “Oh, oh, okay. Thank you.” Casteñeda ran out of bed to check on her oldest daughter, Emily and found that her room was already filled with smoke. 

“Without Ring, I don’t think I would ever have opened the door because in my mind I thought they were breaking in,” she told Ring. “When it’s a fire that big, minutes can turn into devastation. Who knows what could have happened?”

Byers then individually rushed each of Castañeda’s daughters over to his garage.

Castañeda brought Emily to the front door and found Byers racing back to offer help just as she asked, “Can you help me?” Footage shows Byers sprinting across the street to rush Emily to his home across the street. A few seconds of inactivity go by when we see Byers sprinting back to the Castañeda residence. Castañeda passes over her one-year-old daughter, Victoria, and Byers rushes her over to her sister. Still, Byers races back and opens the door to lean in and ask, “Do you need any more help?” Fully clothed and with her phone in hand, she says, “No, thank you,” and runs across the street to be reunited with her daughters in Byers’ garage.

The Mexican-American mother is grateful for her children’s safety and wants everyone to credit Ty Byers and Ring doorbell for that.

Castañeda’s husband had left for work just 25 minutes prior, which illustrates how quickly the fire erupted into a blaze that would completely destroy her neighbor’s home. Meanwhile, her neighbor had no idea his home was even on fire. The Castañeda residence was thankfully untouched by the fire, suffering only minor damages to the garage and some trees.

The Ring footage is now being used by her local fire department to investigate how the fire started.
