Any physical activity or sport requires a lot of hard work. Not just hard work, but even consistency is important for any sports personality. Germany’s Piergiulio Ruhe made his name in boxing after years of practice and training. Boxing is a popular sport and is loved by a certain audience. Not only it strengthens physical state but also the mental state of mind. Ruge made his professional debut on May 26, 2018. His stats include 8 fights so far out of which he has been victorious in 7 fights. The 5 fights he won was through K.O.

The current Reigning German Champion in welterweight wants to represent his country on a global platform. Piergiulio says that it is his dream to fight at the world championship in Las Vegas, USA, and he will fulfil his dream. Popularly known as Toto, he is of German and Italian nationality. With an educational background in the technological field, he has completed vocational training in construction mechanics.  However, his undying love for the sport always moved him to become a boxer.

He has also got an extremely good family business named ‘‘WARU – Wertvolles Aus Aluminium’. Ruhe was however strongly inclined towards the field of sports. He was introduced to boxing at the age of 16 by his friend Mikael Mkrtchyan who is also a professional boxer since 2013 in Spain. “Fighting always inspired me. I could see a lot of hard work and preparation one has to go through in boxing. I don’t like things coming easily to me. Boxing has helped me become a stronger person – mentally, physically as well as emotionally”, says Piergiulio while speaking about his inspiration behind becoming a boxer.

Initially, Ruhe spent time playing soccer and tennis at SC Rinteln. “Your life has no remote control. Get up and control your life by yourself”, this is the motto the boxer has been following all his life. Soon he realized his love for boxing and he trained hard for 6 years before getting into the arena. He strongly emphasizes on 5 important aspects behind his success namely discipline, willpower, self-confidence, implementation capability and dedication. Currently, Piergiulio Ruhe is prepping up for his upcoming intercontinental title against the WBC Youth Champion Maono Ally from Tanzania. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, their fight was postponed and will now mostly happen in either in September or in October this year.

Aaron Rodgers Signs $150m Contract as Green Bay Packers Retain Star Quarterback

If you are a Green Bay Packers fan, then the news that Aaron Rodgers has pledged himself to the Lambeau Field franchise for another three years will be music to your ears. The veteran quarterback has completed back-to-back NFL MVP award-winning seasons, and many may have feared that another offseason filled with ‘will-he, won’t he’ rumors were on the cards, but that’s now been neatly avoided.

38-year-old Rodgers has put pen to paper on a deal that will net him a massive $150m and makes him the best-paid player in the league. His first year will amount to $41m, the second is worth $59, and his third will work out at $49m. That may seem like a hefty sum, but Rodgers reportedly actually turned down a higher amount, knowing that doing so would free up money to improve the deals of other players (and possible newcomers to the Packers ranks).

The retention of Rodgers will, of course, offer a massive boost to Matt LaFleur’s team’s push for a Super Bowl title, and if you take a look at any odds comparison site, you’ll see that Green Bay are now at around the (+1100) mark, meaning that only the Buffalo Bills, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ahead of them in the betting.

Rodgers has been in superb form over the past few seasons, showing that age hasn’t caught up with him, and there is certainly plenty more left in the tank. Next season will be his 18th with the Packers, and he has led his team to the playoffs in each of the past three campaigns. 

During that period, the Packers have a 39-6 record in regular-season action, which is a frightening level of consistency, and keeping such a hugely talented player at the team is something that has been widely applauded.

Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst remarked;

“We are very pleased to be able to come to an agreement with Aaron that keeps him in Green Bay,”

“His play on the field and leadership in our locker room remain vital in our pursuit of another Super Bowl title. The agreement also allows us to maintain and enhance what we feel is already a very competitive roster.”

The new deal for Rodgers has left back-up QB Jordan Love considering his options, and one imagines he may look to leave Green Bay in order to find game time elsewhere. 

On that point, comments from LaFleur suggest that they may not stand in his way, should he indeed look to find a new team;

“Jordan’s come a long way,” 

“I still think, with any young player that hasn’t gotten maybe the experience up to this point, there’s still a lot of room for growth. So I think it’s going to be an important offseason, that when he does come back, it’s making sure that his footwork is sharp, that he’s on the details of what we’re trying to accomplish on each and every play and all the concepts, really a mastery of the offense, and just the command that he has. I know he takes that to heart, and he takes it very personally, and he’ll do whatever he can to be his best.”

One thing is for sure. Trying to force your way from behind the shadow of such an accomplished player, such as Aaron Rodgers, isn’t something that can be easily achieved. Hence the likely need to move on rather than sit on the sidelines for another three years.
