Speaking during the Joe Joyce vs Joseph Parker event, the Gypsy King insisted that he was 'sick' of setting contractual deadlines, and would proceed with a different opponent if AJ did not agree to terms by Monday. ''I'm sick of setting deadlines. They either want this poxy fight or they don't.' Fury said.
REVEALED: Paul Pogba says he DID hire a witchdoctor - but not to put a spell on France teammate Kylian Mbappe... the ex-Man United star claims he was using the mystic to protect him from injuries as his blackmail saga continues
PETER ALLEN IN PARIS: There is always a sense of magic when Kylian Mbappé weaves in and out of multiple defenders to score a breath-taking solo goal. France's 23-year-old superstar striker certainly mesmerised a Paris crowd on Thursday to score the opener in a 2-0 win over Austria. What made the strike in the Nations League game particularly significant, however, is that it came after a witch doctor allegedly used supernatural powers to destroy his talent.
SPECIAL REPORT: Just how many have died so Qatar can host the World Cup? Organizers claim it is only THREE... but Sportsmail can reveal there are at least 2,800 still 'unexplained' - and it could be MUCH higher
WORLD CUP 2022 INVESTIGATION BY NICK HARRIS: The Mail on Sunday can reveal that the deaths of 2,823 foreigners of working age in Qatar have gone unexplained - or 'unclassified' to use the official term - since 2011. The MoS has asked the Qatari government how many of these individuals worked on infrastructure projects with 2022 deadlines, such as roads, hotels and transport hubs that will be used by World Cup visitors, and we have been given no details. We are not suggesting that all these deaths were World Cup-related, nor even work-related; the figure includes migrants from around the world working across all industries. But as to whether the true number of work-related fatalities on World Cup projects is just three - as the Supreme Committee insists - or thousands, as advocacy groups such as Human Rights Watch have claimed, serious questions remain unanswered. The Mail on Sunday has also collated hundreds of case studies involving migrant workers who died working on infrastructure projects since 2011 - revealing their personal details and the circumstances of their death for the first time.

SPECIAL REPORT: Iran is in chaos ahead of the World Cup as unrests grows in the country... protestors ejected from Uruguay friendly by police, our reporter was banned from attending and players were 'forced to delete' their support online
It really should not happen to a former Real Madrid manager and one-time assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson but Carlos Queiroz was laying out the cones for an Iran training session in an obscure Vienna suburb last Thursday afternoon, having played a part in heading off a diplomatic incident. The session, for a team who beat Uruguay 1-0 in a World Cup warm-up the following night, seemed to bring pleasure to a 69-year-old who has been re-hired to stop the rot in the Iran national side - even though he is being paid a mere £50,000 for a four-month contract which expires after the World Cup. His six coaches are on less than £30,000 between them. The diplomatic role is trickier, given that Iran is in the midst of huge and escalating public protest after the death in custody of a 22-year-old woman, Mahsa Amini, who was arrested by the state's morality police for allegedly improperly wearing a hijab and headscarf. Football worries the Iranian state because the nation's football players have a habit of speaking their minds.

Pochettino is open to a Premier League return despite links to Nice, but what other managers are available for the next big hot-seat opening? Zinedine Zidane, Thomas Tuchel and Marcelo Bielsa are some of the 10 biggest names still out of work
The opening weeks of the season have indicated that managers are under more pressure than ever. There have already been two sackings and managerial changes at three different clubs in the Premier League, and keeping hold of a job in the dugout does not appear to be much easier on the continent. Nice boss Lucien Favre, who only took the role over the summer, has come under fire after a poor start to Ligue 1, and former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been strongly linked as a potential replacement.

Ime Udoka persevered as a player and landed Boston's top job to guide the team to an Eastern Conference title... but his one-year ban leaves the Celtics' prospects - and his career - in tatters
Ime Udoka, the Celtics' second-year head coach with a once-sterling reputation, was suspended for all of the upcoming season on Thursday over 'multiple' unspecified violations of team rules. Reports say the 45-year-old had an improper, but consensual relationship with a female member of the team's staff, yet that hardly explains why Udoka is being sidelined for 2022-23, and potentially longer. In the team statement naming assistant Joe Mazzulla as interim coach, Boston said Udoka's future would be determined 'at a later date.' The situation is puzzling to many because Boston is sidelining a coach that guided the team to the NBA Finals in his first season over a private, reportedly consensual relationship.

Roger Federer's final EVER match ends in tears and defeat after he and Rafael Nadal lose to American duo Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe at the Laver Cup as the Swiss maestro brings his glorious career to an end
MIKE DICKSON AT THE O2: Long before the first changeover you knew that this was no ordinary doubles match taking place in London. It ended with defeat and tears from Federer, but a better memory to take away was the final sight of that liquid backhand in a competition environment. Also that nimble footwork which looked to have survived reasonably well the three surgeries that have brought his glorious career to an end. With that first service game there was a reminder, too, that perhaps nobody has ever been able to land their delivery with such effortless precision.

Jonathan David COVERS Nike logo on his jersey after scoring for Canada - as nation's players continue to fume over decision to make them the ONLY team without a new kit for their first World Cup in 36 years

David doubled Canada's lead in Austria, covering the Nike logo with his right hand in their 2-0 victory over the World Cup hosts.
