This contest is a very unique collaboration between Air Jordan and Xbox. The next five weeks are a very big deal when it comes to some iconic Air Jordan III releases. To celebrate this reveal, there are one-of-a-kind Xbox One X consoles inspired by each of the three upcoming Air Jordan III releases.
The custom consoles will be based on the Air Jordan III Free Throw Line which dropped February 14, the Air Jordan III Black Cement available as of February 17 and the Air Jordan III Tinker which will be available on March 24.

The Black Cement Xbox One X is inspired by the sneakers with all the same detailing which made these, considered by many, the greatest sneakers of all-time, and the Tinker Xbox One X showcases Tinker Hatfield’s original design for what the shoe was going to be.
Global Citizen, a social action platform aimed at tackling worldwide issues like poverty, health, and education, announced that French Montana, the Moroccan-born, Bronx-based rapper of “Unforgettable,” is the organization’s first rap ambassador for universal healthcare and education.

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin’s first fight back in September was the biggest boxing event of the year, and while the two fighters produced a great fight the result left a bad taste in the mouths of many that watched. The controversial draw that featured one of the worst cards in recent memory in favor of Canelo frustrated fans, as no one likes to see a draw in boxing even if the fight was much closer than some Golovkin fans would like to admit.
As expected, the two superstars will meet again in a rematch to determine a winner and crown a true, undisputed champion of the middleweight division and they will do so on one of boxing’s most hallowed dates: May 5 on HBO PPV. The Cinco de Mayo weekend date has long been a big boxing day, with Floyd Mayweather adopting it as his official annual fight date for years, and Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez has now taken that mantle.

All four broadcast networks (ABC, FOX, NBC,CBS) PBS, and all major cable news channels carry the State of the Union as a matter of fact.
