Drake Fires At Meek Mill AGAIN With A Fashionable Diss & A Meme Slideshow During His Concert!

We’re not sure this is ever going to end!

Drake and Meek Mill seem to really have it out for each other. After a back and forth feud, diss track after diss track, neither rapper seems like they’ll be backing down anytime soon.

This round had Drake coming out swinging at the OVO Festival in Toronto when he showed up to rehearsals in a Meek Mill t-shirt that said “Free Meek” on it (below). This of course is a reference to when the Philly-based rapper was incarcerated back in 2014.

A little bit of shade is one thing but the Back to Back rapper took it a step further and brought an umbrella to the party to produce all KINDS of shade! During his set, Drake had a backdrop behind him that displayed all the best memes about the rapper’s ongoing feud! LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out the shirt and all the best shade thrown Meek’s way (below)!

Amir Khan Snubbed by Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson over Rematch Offers

Amir Khan’s attempts to exact some revenge on Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson are likely to be to no avail, with the British boxer admitting neither man is keen on a rematch.

Khan lost to Peterson and Garcia in back-to-back bouts in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Speaking with Sport360 (h/t Edward Chaykovsky of BoxingScene.com), the Brit has admitted he has contacted the representatives of both fighters, but he has had no response from either party:

Yes, 100 percent. I’d love to have a rematch with Garcia or Petersen. It won’t happen though. I would love it but when they’ve been sounded out about it I’ve had no response. Last few fights as well, Garcia’s not looked the fighter he once was. He was on fire a couple of years ago, beating myself, Zab Judah and Erik Morales but he’s struggled lately.

Khan lost to Peterson on a tight split decision, but his defeat against Garcia was a lot more emphatic. The man dubbed as “Swift” was too powerful for the then-25-year-old, knocking him down in the third round before the bout was waved off in the fourth.

Although Khan doesn’t think Garcia is the same force he once was, the American looked in pretty strong shape in his debut at welterweight on Saturday, stopping Paulie Malignaggi in the ninth round of their Premier Boxing Champions scrap.

Garcia, who now has a perfect 31 wins from 31 professional fights, revealed he intends to stay at welterweight afterwards:

A Khan-Peterson bout probably wouldn’t command as much interest, but it’d be intriguing to see how both men approached the fight after how even their last showdown was. The two were actually scheduled to meet in a rematch in the aftermath of Peterson’s win four years ago, but the American failed a drugs test, as noted by BBC Sport.

After Garcia beat Peterson earlier this year, the most exciting fight would definitely be Khan taking on Swift. But at a bulkier weight class than they fought at three years ago, would the Brit be able to cope with Garcia’s power any better second time round?

Laceupboxing thinks it’d be a tough one to call:

But at this juncture, neither bout looks likely. For Khan, who has also been continually frustrated in his attempts to land a lucrative clash with Floyd Mayweather Jr., it means the list of potential intriguing opponents to face late this year is being continually chopped down.

WBA world welterweight champion Keith Thurman could be one option, though, after he called out the Brit on Monday, per Behindthegloves.com (h/t Sky Sports).

Regardless of who he ends up facing, it’s imperative the 28-year-old puts in a dazzling performance to back up his functional win over Chris Algieri, otherwise he’ll be in a perennial struggle to command the kind of gravitas the elite fighters do.

Man accused of rape and murder of British woman in Bulgaria

Jan Bennett, 67, from Bristol, was attacked and killed in the town of Malomir, south-eastern Bulgaria, where she had moved two months ago

Bulgarian prosecutors are seeking the most “severe” sentence against the man accused of raping and murdering British woman Jan Bennett in the Bulgarian village where she had recently moved.

Bennett, a 67-year-old from Bristol, was attacked in the town of Malomir, south-eastern Bulgaria, after she had walked her two dogs. She is understood to have moved there from Turkey with her 62-year-old husband, Nick, two months ago.

Liverpool Transfer News: Alexandre Lacazette Told to Leave, Adama Traore Rumours

Liverpool target Alexandre Lacazette has reportedly been told by Lyon that he should leave the club if he is unhappy.

The prolific striker has been linked with a move to numerous major clubs after his fantastic 2014-15 campaign in which he was the top scorer in Ligue 1 with 27 goals in 33 appearances, per WhoScored.com.

A move has not yet materialised. But Lacazette has now reportedly been given an ultimatum by Lyon manager Hubert Fournier after showing a poor attitude in pre-season: leave or sign a new contract, per L’Equipe (h/t Get French Football News).

This could open the door for Liverpool—or Arsenal—who have been linked with the French forward for much of the summer, per MailOnline’s Alex Sharp.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas previously slapped a €50 million (£35 million) price tag on the 24-year-old Lacazette, per Canal+ (h/t Ian Holyman on ESPN FC).

That valuation could come down if Lacazette wants to leave, but Lyon are unlikely to let him go cheap considering his quality.

Thus, it is highly unlikely that the Reds will go in for Lacazette even if he wants to leave Lyon.

Brendan Rodgers has already spent big on adding Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino to his attacking unit, and any movement of strikers is likely to be outgoing at Anfield in the remainder of the transfer window, per Bleacher Report’s Andy Brassell:

Despite recent rumours, Barcelona youngster Adama Traore is also unlikely to be making the switch to Anfield any time soon.

The 19-year-old Barca B star was previously heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, but apparently the Reds are not interested in the Spanish winger, despite the La Liga giants’ willingness to sell him on—albeit with a buyback option included, per James Pearce in the Liverpool Echo.

Traore does look set for a move to the Premier League, though, and he has reportedly asked to miss training with Barcelona on Tuesday and Wednesday in order to travel to England to decide which club he will join, per the Mirror‘s Ed Malyon.

Sport Witness relayed Spanish outlet Marca‘s report that Aston Villa are leading the way in the race to sign the exciting youngster:

Liverpool seem settled with their attacking unit now, and they do certainly look to be in a better position than last term when Daniel Sturridge’s injuries left them struggling for quality up front.

Rodgers has made some fine additions so far this summer and will be looking for his new-look side to make a fast start in their opening match of the Premier League season against Stoke City this weekend.
