Canelo-GGG to MayMac fans: We’ve got a real show for you

first_imgSearch on for 5 Indonesians snatched anew in Lahad Datu MOST READ Ray Allen visits Manila Loeffler and De La Hoya are both grateful that most casual sports fans seemed to enjoy Mayweather’s 10th-round stoppage victory: The unusual fight appeared to be competitive, and it largely entertained people who don’t watch every big fight.And if those casual fans now want to see the best that boxing has to offer, De La Hoya and Loeffler are selling Mexico’s biggest star against an unbeaten Kazakh knockout artist for four middleweight title belts.“I’m glad that so many people bought the fight so they can see what boxing is all about, and what boxing is all about is September 16th with Canelo and Triple G,” De La Hoya said.De La Hoya sent out a furious, profane tweet to his 1.8 million followers one day before the bout, declaring that Mayweather and McGregor were “disrespecting the sport of boxing.” De La Hoya didn’t back down from that opinion during public workouts in downtown Los Angeles for Alvarez and Golovkin, who attracted well over 1,000 fans standing in 90-degree downtown Los Angeles heat for four hours.“Only Mayweather knows, why it lasted 10 rounds,” said De La Hoya, who lost a close fight to Mayweather in 2007. “Obviously, Mayweather is not the biggest puncher in the game. If there was a Canelo in there, obviously it would last one round.”ADVERTISEMENT Police seize P68-M worth of ‘shabu’ in Pasay Golovkin said he might watch the replay of Mayweather-McGregor this week, but didn’t seem terribly interested. Alvarez, who took his only career defeat against Mayweather in 2013, said he ordered the pay-per-view, but “to see a show, not a fight. I knew what I was getting.”“We weren’t negative on that event,” Loeffler added. “We just made it clear that this is the real boxing match, and that was a spectacle. It was the most popular MMA fighter against the most popular boxer. … You shouldn’t sell it as a real, competitive fight. But we were happy that it wasn’t a disaster to where people would be down on buying this fight.”Although Loeffler praises McGregor’s showmanship and MMA skills, he likened the matchup to Muhammad Ali’s infamous 1976 fight with Japanese pro wrestler Antonio Inoki.“It was really more of an exhibition,” Loeffler said. “It wasn’t really a boxing match.”But don’t mistake Loeffler for an Oscar-style hater. He thinks the long-term benefits of that short-term curiosity outweigh the drawbacks.“The more boxing exposure we can get for the sport in general, the more fights that can be made,” Loeffler said. “It brought (boxing) to the mainstream. It got a lot of attention that many other events never have a chance of getting. But I really think (Alvarez-Golovkin) is the highlight of boxing for this year.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Boxer Canelo Alvarez works out as he hosts an open-to-the-public media workout at L.A.

Security of fishermen discussed by Granger, Bouterse

first_imgHeads of Govt meeting…commit to agricultural trade, tourism, investmentPresident David Granger has met his Surinamese counterpart, President Desi Bouterse, on the sidelines of the 39th Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of Caricom, to review the changing situation in the Caribbean and South America.According to President Granger, the opportunity was taken to discuss matters of mutual concern.“Whenever we meet, we try to speak. Unfortunately, because of various reasons, IPresidents David Granger and Desi Boutersehave been travelling quite a lot, and we have not been able to have our regular meeting; so we are just reviewing the changing situation in the Caribbean, and also on the continent of South America,” President Granger explained.The Guyanese Head of State said the meeting also allowed for the two neighbouring presidents to plan for future meetings, and identify matters to be discussed.“In a sense, we’re setting the agenda for a further meeting between President Bouterse and myself. So, it’s an agenda- setting meeting and at the same time it’s a review of certain developments which have taken place since our last meeting,” he said.Security matters such as piracy were discussed, and the two Heads of State have agreed to work to find short- to long-term solutions.“As a matter of urgency, you know we have the security problem affecting the fishermen, and we are looking to deal with issues which could be resolved in the short and middle terms, to ensure that there is no lawlessness as occurred in April,” President Granger said.In July 2016, President David Granger had made a visit to neighbouring Suriname with a view to expediting the implementation of various decisions that had been taken earlier. President Desi Bouterse in turn had made a one-day state visit to Guyana in December 2016 for a working meeting in Georgetown.The two countries have agreed to work to expedite re-establishment of the Guyana-Suriname Cooperation Council, along with the appointment of a special envoy whose main responsibility would be to advance the implementation of agreements reached by the two States.Additionally, a joint communique issued by the two parties had stated that technical officials from Guyana and Suriname would meet to discuss, through their respective committees, issues in relation to the protection of the environment, agricultural trade, tourism, investment, and cross-border activities.“Both leaders agreed that full advantage should be taken of the opportunities for combining human and capital resources to further the economic and social development of the peoples of Guyana and Suriname,” the communique had stated.last_img read more

They’re working on projects like parks, ensuring food security and they’re also ensuring that communities have the strength they need to be strong. There’s not one area that our Rotarians are not strongly focused in communities.”Vavrek says Rotary is a core platform that ensures communities are strong and is a social fabric helping to shift change and make a difference.Starting in July and ending in November, Vavrek expects to travel more than 33,000 kilometres to visit all 60 Rotary Clubs in the District.Advertisementlast_img read more

Germany players to get Sh42.4mn each for World Cup win

first_img0Shares0000Germany’s players pose for the team photograph ahead of their friendly match against England, at Wembley Stadium in London, on November 10, 2017BERLIN, Germany, Dec 13-The German Football Association (DFB) announced Wednesday that each member of their squad will receive a Sh42.4mn ($411,267) bonus should Germany defend their World Cup title next year in Russia.If the Germans win a fifth world title, Joachim Loew and his squad stand to get an increase in prize money from the Sh36.3mn they each got for winning the 2014 World Cup final in Brazil. Germany kick off their 2018 defence against Mexico on June 17 in Moscow having also drawn Sweden and South Korea in Group F.“For our players, it is a great motivation to become world champions back-to-back for the first time in the history of German football,” said DFB president Reinhard Grindel.“That would be a title for the eternity and certainly worth a special bonus.“But you can feel in this team, that the sporting challenge is the main focus and not the economic aspect.”Germany have a reputation for being a tournament team and there will be no prize money from their FA until they reach at least the quarter-finals, where each player would get Sh9.1mn.The cash rises to Sh15.2mn for the semi-finals, Sh18.2mn for third place and Sh24.2mn if they lose the final on July 15 at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.Team manager Oliver Bierhoff says the performance-based scheme “brings the necessary calm and clarity early on, allowing us to focus on the task before and during the competition.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Rampant Arsenal face Lisbon test, Chelsea sweat on Hazard

first_img0Shares0000Mesut Ozil is thriving as Arsenal captain © IKIMAGES/AFP / Glyn KIRKPARIS, France, Oct 24 – Amid a packed schedule Arsenal take a 10-match winning streak to Sporting Lisbon as their quest to win the Europa League continues Thursday, when city rivals Chelsea, possibly without the influential Eden Hazard, host BATE Borisov of Belarus.After sealing an impressive 10th straight victory at home to Leicester in the Premier League on Monday, Unai Emery’s outfit are the team to watch in Group E. Arsenal and Sporting sit on six points apiece after two games, with Azerbaijan’s Qarabag and fellow strugglers Vorskla of Ukraine still pointless.Sporting are fifth in Portugal’s top flight, four points off the top with former Manchester United star Nani having scored three goals from seven league outings.If Arsenal needed more reason to believe in their chances of going all the way, they need not look far. As coach of Sevilla in 2013-2016, Emery led the Spaniards to three consecutive Europa League titles.“We are beginning to play with heart,” Emery said after Monday’s come-from-behind 3-1 win, in which Mesut Ozil scored and provided an assist in a man-of-the-match performance.Nani is Sporting’s top scorer so far this season © AFP / PATRICIA DE MELO MOREIRA“I think we played some sexy football,” said the 30-year-old German.Sporting, who won 2-1 away to Loures in the Portuguese Cup with Nani and Bruno Fernandes both on target, should be fresher having played on Saturday.Arsenal played on Monday and Emery, already set to make changes due to a packed schedule, is set to tinker further after both Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac were ruled out.“Yesterday was a very bad day for injuries,” Emery conceded on Tuesday.– ‘We can go all the way’ –Having won both their opening Group L matches, 2013 champions Chelsea can take a major step to the next round with a home win on Thursday, although they may have to do without Hazard.The Belgian playmaker says he was kicked so much during Chelsea’s 2-2 weekend draw with Manchester United that he will miss the Stamford Bridge game against BATE with a bad back.“When I woke up on Monday I was stiff. Even during the second half I couldn’t accelerate properly,” he said.Brazilian midfielder Willian thinks this might be Chelsea’s year for the Europa League © AFP / Glyn KIRKWith Spanish centre-forward Alvaro Morata struggling on just three goals this season, Hazard’s absence could rob Chelsea of their main attacking threat after a blistering seven-goal start to the Premier League campaign.Yet Brazilian winger Willian remains upbeat about their chances, claiming the entire club has been given a lift by the arrival of new coach Maurizio Sarri.“The way we are playing this season, we can go all the way,” the in-form winger said of their Europa League campaign.As Marseille prepare to face Lazio, the French side will be hoping the past experience of coach Rudi Garcia pays dividends as they bid for their first win of the group stage following a 2-2 draw at Apollon Limassol. He joined them from Roma, where he faced Lazio five times in the capital-city derby and never lost.“Three wins and two draws in five games, I hope we can get a result like I used to in those Rome derbies,” Garcia told AFP.He added: “I’ll always have a little bit of Roma in my heart so that gives us added inspiration, but what counts here is winning, not punchlines.”Fixtures (all matches 1655 GMT)Group A: Zurich v Leverkusen, AEK Larnaca v LudogoretsGroup B: Salzburg v Rosenborg, Leipzig v CelticGroup C: Zenit Saint Petersburg v Bordeaux, Kobenhavn v Slavia PrahaGroup D: Anderlecht v Fenerbahce, Spartak Trnava v Dinamo ZagrebGroup E: Qarabag v Vorskla, Sporting CP v ArsenalGroup F: AC Milan v Real Betis, Dudelange v OlympiacosLate kick-offs (all matches 1900 GMT)Group G: Rangers v Spartak Moscow, Villarreal v Rapid ViennaGroup H: Eintracht Frankfurt v Apollon, Marseille v LazioGroup I: Sarpsborg v Malmo, Besiktas v GenkGroup J: Standard Liege v Krasnodar, Sevilla v AkhisarGroup K: Jablonec v Astana, Rennes v Dynamo KievGroup L: Chelsea v BATE Borisov, PAOK v Vidi0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Transfer mistakes! Five players Man United let go who are thriving away from Van Gaal

first_imgA glance at the Premier League table would suggest Manchester United’s season is on track.But all is not well at Old Trafford. A disharmony in the squad, coupled with a hugely disappointing premature exit from the Champions League at the group stages has left Louis van Gaal teetering on the brink.Struck by a series of debilitating injuries, particularly in defence, it is alarming how restricted Van Gaal’s options are currently. At Bournemouth on Saturday, he was forced to field Guillermo Varela and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson at full back while Anthony Martial is still just 19 and shouldering most of the goalscoring burden.It raises some serious questions about the Dutchman’s transfer policy. Several established stars have been shown the Old Trafford exit in the last two summers because they didn’t fit into Van Gaal’s philosophy. Many of them are now enjoying much happier times away from Manchester.So which ones have moved on to brighter pastures? talkSPORT takes a look…Will Van Gaal live to rue any of these sales? 6 4. Shinji Kagawa (Borussia Dortmund) – Kagawa initially left United in the same week Di Maria and Radamel Falcao arrived and has reignited his career at Dortmund again since. This season, in particular, the Japanese international has become a key cog in Dortmund’s insatiable attacking unit alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marco Reus. He certainly wouldn’t swap his current situation for the sorry state of affairs at Old Trafford right now. 6 2. Patrice Evra (Juventus) – Evra’s transfer u-turn in summer 2014, not long after Van Gaal arrived, signalled a breakdown in trust between player and manager. The arrival of Luke Shaw in late June indicated the beginning of the end of Evra’s Red Devils career but he has hardly looked back. The Frenchman became an integral part of Juventus’s double winning side in Italy last season, while only Barcelona’s brilliance in the Champions League final denied him a third trophy in his debut campaign. 3. Angel di Maria (PSG) – Possibly the most high profile recruit England has welcomed to its shores in the last five years struggled immensely with Van Gaal’s stoic, stifling approach. When United decided to cut their losses on Di Maria in the summer many felt the club would live to regret the move. Seven goals and ten assists in 13 games for PSG would suggest they do, particularly with creativity lacking so glaringly in the current Red Devils side. 1. Javier Hernandez (Bayer Leverkusen) – 15 goals in his 12 games, including a quick-fire hat-trick at the weekend, is an astonishing return for ‘Chicharito’. United fans feel hugely aggrieved about his departure, particularly for as little as the reported £7.3m, as their attacking department is looking severely strained as Wayne Rooney’s struggles continue. The Mexican’s knack of being in the right place at the right time would surely have taken some of the responsibility off Anthony Martial? 6 6 5. Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) – Zaha was billed as English football’s next big thing when United swooped for his signature in January 2013 but his Red Devils career never got off the ground. It seemed his career needed a step back to make any progress forward and a return to Palace last summer has restored his confidence. He has now forged a devilish partnership with Yannick Bolasie on the Eagles’ flanks, terrorising Premier League defenders on a weekly basis. 6 6 Click the yellow arrow to see the five stars who have flourished away from Louis van Gaal last_img read more

‘I WILL FLY TO IRELAND TO SEE THE TAOISEACH AND BEG HIM TO PLAY CROKE PARK’

first_imgSINGER Garth Brooks today said he’s prepared to beg Enda Kenny to be allowed to play five shows at Croke Park at the end of this month.Speaking at a press conference in America, the singer was emotional as he said he would do anything to make sure that the concerts go ahead.“If the prime minister wants to talk to me, I will crawl, I will swim or I will fly to him, I will sit in front of him, drop on my knees and beg – let me play to these 400,000 people,” said Brooks in Tennessee. He said the reason he wanted to do all five – and not three – shows was because everyone should be given the chance to see him.“We don’t do golden circle, it’s always been the same price across the board, You treat everyone equal, same way here, even in Vegas,” he said.A meeting to discuss the issue in Dublin was cancelled earlier – with even the Mexican ambassador offering his diplomatic services to help solve the row.Brooks said he had always been “treated like a king in Ireland” and he was perplexed by the row since Dublin City Council said he could only play three of his planned gigs. “Why are the 160,000 people being treated different to the 240,000? The statement to me was you can make 240,000 happy and play three shows, and mine back was, yes, or you can make 400,000 happy and let me play five shows. I don’t know how we got here but the ‘powers that be’ aren’t here to help,” he said.Some 70,000 people from abroad have booked flights into Dublin for the show. ‘I WILL FLY TO IRELAND TO SEE THE TAOISEACH AND BEG HIM TO PLAY CROKE PARK’ was last modified: July 11th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Croke ParkGarth Brooksticketslast_img read more
