Not intimidating

The opportunity for this great event is now.'Anyway, as my own biggest critic, I think I am still raw in some ways.

Morally, the only proper reaction to last weekend’s events in Charlottesville, Virginia, is outrage. To help prevent violence while preserving freedom of speech, we need to distinguish three categories, all of which seem to have been in play: terrorism, peaceful protest and provocative action aimed at producing street violence. The car attack on peacefully assembled citizens was a terrorist act, modeled it would seem on Islamic State-inspired vehicle attacks in Europe.

Klitschko says: 'AJ is not as rough as he was when he came here to spar with me a few years ago.

AJ has shown marked improvement as a professional and we will see further acceleration on April 29.'So I don't want to hear that it was too early for Joshua or that Klitschko was over the hill.'The three-and-a-half week countdown to Wembley has begun.

'So what' is one of the greatest things you can ask yourself in this world. Nothing made the need for this article more clear than when someone recently told me that before they met me, they thought I was intimidating. Super friendly, short, always smiling, girl from a small town, me?

The older legend who is hell-bent on regaining his world heavyweight title from the hot new champion says: 'I have a lot of respect for Anthony. At his training camp up here in the cool air of the Austrian Tyrol, the Ukrainian who dominated heavyweight boxing for a decade sniffs the chance to retrieve two of the belts – the IBF and WBA – which he lost to Tyson Fury 18 months ago.

It should be prosecuted as a federal hate crime, insofar as it can be shown to have been motivated by racial or religious prejudice. The car attack should also be prosecuted as terrorism, defined by federal law to cover acts of violence intended to affect the course of politics.

If it can be shown that the driver conspired with others, including members of white supremacist groups, they, too, can be prosecuted, even if they weren’t specifically planning the car attack.

Charlottesville shows that keeping a safe distance between protesters and counterprotesters is all-important to keeping the peace.

That brings us to the hardest category, legally speaking: provocative speech that is aimed to produce conflict. New Hampshire, the court carved out a free-speech exception for what it called “fighting words.” The idea was supposed to be that the government could criminalize speech that would provoke a reasonable listener into immediate retaliatory violence.
