9:00 pm
viewing are impressed thing you need i heard that this is a beautiful movie so i came with the family to watch it having a movie made in aden is more than just entertainment there is a sense of pride here about the production. in the philippines when you compare yemen to the rest of the arab world we are maybe more than one hundred years behind on producing movies but this is a milestone and i hope the government in the private sector will continue to support such projects that helped to create a cinematic awareness the makeshift cinema in aden isn't set in the main conflicts suffered elsewhere in yemen pro-government fighters recaptured the city from who three forces three years ago but there have been frequent attacks by a wide range of disparate fighting groups since then. this movie maybe a form of escapism out of it though comes one small hope that
9:01 pm
a vibrant young filmmaking industry may emerge from this conflict all that some people feel has no end unlike the movie hundred simmons' al-jazeera djibouti. and he's here to talk boxing and when i think boxing i think thriller and miller and what was it rumble in the jungle correct all i've got here is assembly at wembley which is not terribly and that's one of the problems joshua has is never for outside of the united kingdom there was a time when heavyweight boxes dominated their sports around the world not necessarily the case now and see joshua set to defend his three title belts in london he's a world champion as i mentioned is yet to fight outside of his own country joshua fight russia's alexander privette can in front of around eighty thousand fans are london's wembley stadium lights are on this saturday is a big draw inside the u.k. the twenty twelve olympic champion unbeaten in twenty one fights as a professional but has faced criticism this time out for not taking on a higher profile opponents you know not one hundred talk about too much and so on
9:02 pm
the server but there was a lot of talk around the head weight division which brings up all sorts of names but ollie as we know particular is one of my toughest challenges to date so that's where my focus has been for the last how many months i've been training for the fourth or joshua's arrival title holder is american dion sait wilder joshua versus wilder the fight many want to see the w.b.c. champion has just announced a bout with britain's tyson fury coming up on december the first both those fighters have on beats in records as well well earlier i spoke to me cox australia correspondent for max boxing about what joshua needs to do to race is global profile. it's first really developing a brand it's an ash i think the number one thing you need to do is to go and fight the winners the while the spirit body in the united states that's where the big money is that's where the market he's saving right bucks and that's where the yes a potential that you've been need to really build his brand and and become
9:03 pm
something special in the in the book to market this really to any have like books can take the tron become an international presence in and the way that mohamed ali well did it was to take the thoughts to the papal fought here in the rumble in the jungle to fought in the philippines in the tripler in manila and to really get he's getting probably following these presents lennox lewis did it all the great heavyweight to have done it and that's really the topic that i'll be talking to joshua. you can be well known in the boxing industry and with people that boxing but to really break through into that mind strain mock it is what every boxer really rebellious laws do and that's where the really big money is and the motor issue is my money now at home if we can just cross over into that might stray market internationally that's where the really truly feel as. well. kristie and it's sort of boxing season on london. reporting on the joshua funds at wembley
9:04 pm
stadium with this how important is the boxing as a whole to have a healthy high profile heavyweight division. it's exceptionally important for boxing to truly thrive the bana division as we like to call it has to have one recognizable king it's all been a little bit messy over the years probably as far back since lennox lewis was champion really we haven't really had that want to stop me champion the klitschko came along of course and those two of them now we've got joshua while the jockeying for position joshua is widely regarded as the number one and hopefully this time next year we could have a position where there is just one champion and of course that's what the sport wants and that's what the divisions this does joshua care about raising his profile around the world and in the united states i think he cares i think he cares very much about raising his profile i think he cares about about being that numerous you know in the heavyweight division that's always been the goal since day one and i think sometimes people perhaps expect
9:05 pm
a bit too much you guys only have twenty two professional five to twenty eight years old and even a professional for six years or five years even and then the guys that he's fought have been very impressive opponents indeed so this is all it's not that complicated to for him to now go to america and do that he's got a wembley date tonight he's got wembley date night will and then after that i would imagine his next target if he's still in beijing will be america and just tell us from what you've seen of him in the ring is he the real deal absolutely he's the real deal whether he's going to go down in history as one of the greatest of all time we don't it's far too early to judge but but the boxes that he's fought the performances that he's put in with the amount of speed experience he's got he is exceptionally exceptionally talented deserves to be one of the most famous athletes in the u.k. the moment he's achieved a hell of a lot and people mention alexander the victim and they don't know who he's just because they don't know who he is just because the average guy on the street doesn't know alexander pavitt can is it doesn't mean that this russian isn't dangerous he is thirty nine years old but behind joshua while days the third best
9:06 pm
headway in the world. and just just briefly matt you mentioned there how dangerous an opponent of that can is and from what you saw in joshua's last fight how do you see this this contest unfolding tonight well it's interesting i mean because that was the first time against joseph talk about the march to being the full twelve rounds he showed no trouble whatsoever going to over and it was a controlled performance lessons were learned from the from the very very exciting and entertaining but mistake ridden performance against. vladimir klitschko i think that now what we will see with joshua is kind of a safety first approach which may not be good news for those blood thirsty fans out there but it probably will be good news for joshua moving forward i would expect to see him adopt a safety first approach tonight and if the knockout comes it comes but don't expect that gong going home slugger that we used to have fantastic thanks for spending some of his analogies airhead christy there of boxing news thanks so much or maybe

9:14 pm
security forces bringing. another group to be sponsored by the saudis to be behind the attacks and so it's difficult if you one has to be cautious and it is difficult to say because also to iran of course blames the usual suspects israel saudi arabia the united states being behind this attack as was the case last year when there was this to an attack in tehran against the most ileum of. khomeini and also the iranian parliament so there is a lot of questions because in both the whens those were highly securitized events and nevertheless those attacks could occur so there are a lot of security related questions. two days after a ferry capsized in tanzania rescuers have found a survivor the man was in an epoch inside the ferry making one of only forty one

the senate judiciary committee ahead of cavanagh's confirmation hearing according to the new york times forbes lawyers have until saturday afternoon to negotiate the terms of her testimony after a friday deadline was extended have a not denies the allegations well alan fischer joins us live now from washington and so on does it look as though this deadline for this afternoon will be met. well we don't really know what we know with that the professor has done several requirements she has before she will give testimony she wants to give it later in the week not on monday when chuck grassley and is judiciary committee wanted to meet she wants to be able to drive to washington d.c. that will take a while she wants to give evidence after a break having a gives his evidence to the committee on this instance there are a number of publicans and say well we can't really question him until we know what you've got to see she wants the committee to at the very least subpoena mark judge
9:31 pm
choose the other person who was in the room when this alleged assault took place and she's also saying that she would like some sort of f.b.i. investigation which could take just a couple of days to conduct all of those things have got to be added to the mix and whether or not the committee is ready to grant that extension grant those conditions and say yeah ok we will do this chuck grassley has already said he would like to move ahead with the vote very airlie next week but professor ford's lawyers are saying very clearly look there is no real reason why you need to impose this artificial deadline of saturday afternoon this is yours and by doing this you're building this woman into making a decision which has got of lot of repetitions for her and her family she has already receiving death threats she's not sure if she wants to do it in the form that you're suggesting so there are still discussions to take place there was of course
9:32 pm
a deadline late on friday that was extended what happens next well unfortunately we're just going to have to wait and see so no resolution as yet between their republicans and ford's lawyers is there a chance allan that the republicans might try to press ahead with a vote on cavanagh's confirmation without hearing from her. there's always that possibility the push ahead the difficulty they've got is do they have enough votes no mitch mcconnell who's the leader of the republicans in the senate he's the leader of the senate says yes we've got enough votes because of course break one has to be confirmed fifty one to forty nine and that would be the make up of republicans against democrats here's the problem there are three republicans who say the uncommitted no doesn't match mcconnell really have the votes and if not is he lying or do the three senators through the publicans of senators who say the haven't made a decision yet are they lying or do they want to hear from professor professor ford
9:33 pm
and brett kavanaugh before they make a decision so it's not entirely clear how this all plays out no if the republicans push ahead with a vote and the three senators who said the aren't convinced because they want to hear from professor ford and they vote no then brett kavanaugh as the nomination dies on the floor of the senate so there's a lot of mathematics there's a lot of politics and there's a lot of lobbying to go on but we know in the beginning of next week the short answer to your question could the republicans push ahead yes would they when that's not entirely clear alan thank you very much allan fisher with all the latest there from washington. meanwhile in the u.s. eight of our zona siblings of a republican congressman running for reelection have launched a t.v. advert for their preferred candidate the democrat running against their brother paul gosar the congressman isn't doing anything to help rural america paul's
