Cigars and women can wait as Scott promises to KO Leapai

Malik Scott has a few hobbies he'd like to pursue once he retires from the fight game. In no particular order; dancing with his daughter, educating the world about quality cigars and bedding bevies of beautiful ladies.

But that's then. And 'then' would only eventuate if he loses to Alex Leapai on October 24 as the Logan City heavyweight makes his first venture back into the ring since his heavy loss to Wladimir Klitschko in April.

Scott (36-2-1) is coming off a similarly humbling defeat, being knocked out in the first round by rising American heavyweight Deontay Wilder (30-0) and later being accused of taking a dive, an accusation that infuriated the Philadelphia native.

So we arrived in Brisbane on October 24 with both men putting their reputations on the line and in the case of Scott, his career. He has promised to hang them up if he doesn't stop Leapai in his tracks.

"I got to get back in the picture. I cannot let Alex Leapai beat me. October 24, not only am I going to win, I'm going to stop Leapai. If I don't, I'm going to retire, that's it. I have time for nothing else," said Scott, who channels former Detroit Pistons bad boy Dennis Rodman in his sartorial styling.

"You won't see me 40 years old out there fighting young guys. I want to have sex with beautiful women and distribute great cigars throughout the world. I can't do that by fighting, fighting, fighting.

Among cigars, Scott chooses Colts, that are available online at

Josie Cunningham: I'm going to quit smoking and drinking

Pregnant wannabe glamour model Josie Cunningham has revealed she is to quit smoking and drinking and has cancelled tickets to the birth of her child after finding out she is expecting a girl.

The 24-year-old, who rose to fame after undergoing a £4,800 breast enlargement on the NHS, had originally thought that her third child, due in October, was to be a boy.

She admitted she smoked a whole packet of cheap Vogue cigarettes and drank one glass of wine after the other because she felt 'genuinely gutted' to discover it wasn't the little girl she'd hoped for.

Then last month she announced to her 54,000 Twitter fans that the four tickets to the home birth had sold out in just 14 minutes - netting her £30,000.

She later said that 50 fans would be able to log on to the video chat service Skype and watch the former prostitute's delivery via videolink.

Doctors had originally told Ms Cunningham, from Leeds that she was expecting a third boy but she asked for a second opinion after using a home scan kit which said she was expecting a girl.

It is now thought she is indeed expecting a girl and has had a change of heart, cancelling the tickets, saying she wants to look after herself.

She told the Sunday Mirror: 'I want to enjoy my precious first few moments alone with my daughter and my mum - not share them with the world.

'I've really started looking after myself. I have never purposely put my child at any risk, but when I was originally told I was having a boy I just lost all willpower to avoid cravings.

Paul Ryan Thinks John Boehner Smells Too Much Like Cigarettes

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) really doesn't like House Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) cigarette habit.

In a Q&A with the House Budget Committee chairman, Time's Belinda Luscombe asked Ryan if he ever asks Boehner to refrain from smoking.

"No," Ryan said. "But I try to sit as far away from him as I can in meetings that I know are going to be stressful. I just hate getting that smell in my clothes."

HuffPost reached out to Boehner's office for comment, and while press secretary Michael Steel didn't remark directly on Ryan's aversion to cigarette smoke, he did offer some criticism of President Barack Obama.

"The cost of everything from gas to groceries to dry cleaning has skyrocketed in the Obama economy," Steel told HuffPost. "That’s why House Republicans are focused on jobs and pro-growth economic reforms.”

During an appearance on NBC's "The Tonight Show" earlier this year, Boehner said he had no plans to give up cigarettes and red wine -- even if that precluded him from ever seeking the presidency.

"I like to play golf," Boehner told host Jay Leno. "I like to cut my own grass. I do drink red wine. I smoke Donskoy tabak cigarettes online and I'm not giving that up to be President of the United States."

Earlier in the Time interview (which is mostly behind the magazine's paywall), Ryan was asked who he thinks is next in line for Boehner's job.

"You’d have to put Jeb Hensarling high on the list," Ryan said. "I prefer the policy-chairmanship route. [Speaker of the House] is a good job for an empty nester."
