JuJu Pays Off $25,000 of Layaway For Christmas!

Samoan NFL player Juju Smith-Schuster and the Juju foundation paid off over $25,000 worth of layaway gifts earlier this week for families in need.

JuJu and his family teamed up with Pay Away the Layaway volunteers and Burlington Stores in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Compton, California to pay off Christmas gifts and essential products for over 170 families in need.

“I am truly blessed to be able to give back to families in Pittsburgh and California during the holidays,” said Smith-Schuster, about the donation. “We hope paying off these layaway balances will cause a sense of relief and lift the spirit of all of these families.”

Especially during 2020, this donation is a huge weight lifted off the shoulders of people and families in need during a holiday season that has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, JuJu was able to help others and give a lot of people a reason to smile as the year is winding down.

Mark Hunt vs Paul Gallen - Sydney Super Fight highlights

The co-main event last night on the Sydney Super Fight card between Heavyweight fighters Mark Hunt and Paul Gallen did not disappoint.

While Gallen ultimately won via unanimous decision on points (we're guessing because he looked busier), there was no doubt the Super Samoan landed the more damaging shots.  A right hand in the second round rocked Gallen (Mark should have finished him off here but let him recover) and left hooks in the fourth and fifth rounds were clearly the most impactful punches of the bout.

There were plenty of viewers who felt Mark had been robbed or that the fight should have at least been a draw.

Check out the highlights in the video above to judge for yourself.
