Alvarez stops Kovalev in 11th round to win 175-pound title

first_img LIVE TV Written By First Published: 3rd November, 2019 12:14 IST Last Updated: 3rd November, 2019 12:14 IST Alvarez Stops Kovalev In 11th Round To Win 175-pound Title Alvarez landed a left-right late in the 11th round Saturday night, dropping Sergey Kovalev to the canvas and ending their light heavyweight title fight. Associated Press Television News COMMENTcenter_img WATCH US LIVE Alvarez landed a left-right late in the 11th round Saturday night, dropping Sergey Kovalev to the canvas and ending their light heavyweight title fight. Kovalev was left on his knees, his arms draped over the middle ring rope as the fight was stopped at 2:15 of the round. It was a dramatic finish for a fight that had little drama up to the knockdown. Kovalev was more than holding his own late in the fight and hadn’t been hurt when Alvarez landed the left followed by a right.The Mexican great, who moved up two weight classes, won his fourth title in as many weights. He celebrated by kissing the glove on his right hand as Kovalev’s handlers jumped into the ring to see if their fighter was OK. The punch was one Alvarez had been looking for the entire fight, stalking Kovalev while taking a lot of jabs and right hands to the face. Both fighters fought cautiously for the most part, with Kovalev content to use his jab from long distance and Alvarez looking to land hooks to the body. The crowd at the MGM Grand booed on several occasions, unhappy with the lack of action.Alvarez was a 4-1 favourite despite moving up two weight classes to fight for a piece of Kovalev’s 175-pound title. He took the fight against Kovalev rather than a third fight with Gennadiy Golovkin as part of a $365 million deal he signed with the streaming service DAZN. Both fighters took naps in their dressing rooms as they waited some 90 minutes from the last undercard bout before entering the ring. The delay was for DAZN, which wanted to wait until the UFC card in New York was finished before the fight began. Fans at the MGM Grand arena watched the UFC main event on big screens in the arena while the fighters waited.Kovalev controlled the distance early with his jab, sticking it in Alvarez’s face as he plodded ahead with gloves held high looking for an opening on the inside. Alvarez threw punches sparingly, winging a few big punches that missed as Alvarez came back with jabs and an occasional right hand. But Alvarez began finding the range with his left hook in the middle rounds, working Kovalev’s body and trying to wear him down. He kept advancing with gloves held close to his face, putting pressure on his bigger opponent. SUBSCRIBE TO US FOLLOW USlast_img read more

How To Keep Pets Safe In the Cold

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisHere in Alpena we’ve been experiencing freezing cold temperatures and negative wind chills. This weather is chilling our bones, but imagine how it’s making our pets feel? Many pet owners think their pets are safe from the cold especially with their big coats of fur, but with temperatures hitting below freezing pets are still at risk!Take into consideration how dangerous it is for your pets to be outside, small dogs can even get hypothermia and frostbite on their little paws. Simple ways to prevent your animals from frostbite is to wipe the salt off their feet, and consider using products that protect your pets paws. A good rule of thumb is if it’s too cold outside for you, it’s probably too cold for your pets. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious New Years Baby Finally Arrives in Alpena: Stella Mae JanisNext ‘Who’s qualified?’ Committee seek designers for new jaillast_img read more

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane: Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Lionel Messi

first_imgReal Madrid’s Zinedine Zidane is of the belief Cristiano Ronaldo is the world’s best player and admits he never expected to go into coaching.Zidane moved to the Real Madrid Castilla bench after a year as Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant, then took over from Rafa Benitez with the senior side in January.Now it is the Frenchman dealing with questions that will be familiar to both his predecessors – including perhaps the defining debate of modern football.Zidane was asked the question posed to countless others – Ronaldo or Lionel Messi?“Cristiano is the best,” Zidane replied.“There’s a lot that can be said about him but in his heart he’s a good person. “Messi is his rival and the rivalry is good for football. It’s what people want to see.”The World Cup winner acknowledged that he never planned to go into management after retiring as a player, and his experiences so far have helped him to understand some of his former bosses.“I never thought that one day I would be a coach. When you finish playing, you just think about your family,” AS quotes the Frenchman as telling Mexican publication Record.“I liked being on the pitch, because that’s what I did. I didn’t know anything else. I do want to go and play but I can’t. The feeling on the bench is different.“I’m now under a different pressure than I felt on the pitch and I could work things out. Now the players decide. “I do understand my former coaches more now, yes. Now it’s me who is tense. The coach is always to blame for the defeat. But you assume responsibility, the good and the bad.“The main thing is to convey the message to my players. I ask two or three things of them because they are very professional.“I have a sensational group and I’m happy with them and what they’re doing. We’re prepared to win every game. That’s Madrid’s goal.“We’re working well physically and with the quality we have, I’m not worried.”– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more

Hamilton wins British Grand Prix after puncture on last lap

first_imgLewis Hamilton took an extraordinary victory in a dramatic finish to the British Grand Prix despite suffering a puncture on the last lap.The Mercedes driver’s left-front tyre failed halfway around the last lap but he held on in front of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.Verstappen would have won had he not stopped late for fresh tyres in a successful quest for the point for fastest lap.Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas also punctured, two laps earlier, which dropped him out of the points.The Finn finished 11th and dropped to 30 points behind Hamilton in the title race, a potentially devastating blow to his hopes so early in a season truncated by the coronavirus.McLaren’s Carlos Sainz was a third driver to suffer a left-front puncture, his like Hamilton’s on the last lap, and he dropped from fourth place to 13th.

Hyun-Jin Ryu injured in Los Angeles Dodgers’ 3-2 loss to Atlanta Braves

first_imgATLANTA — At least Hyun-Jin Ryu could crack a small smile Wednesday night.“It’s not that serious,” he said through an interpreter.Ryu exited in the sixth inning of the Dodgers’ 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves with a strained right gluteal muscle. He’s officially day-to-day, but no one knew for sure if Ryu would be able to make his next scheduled start Tuesday against the San Diego Padres. Manager Don Mattingly said the pitcher might undergo an MRI exam today or meet with team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache after the team flies home tonight. An off-day in the schedule Monday might allow Ryu an extra day to recover, or allow the Dodgers to skip his turn and keep their other four starters on regular rest. The 6-foot-2, 254-pound pitcher didn’t appear shaken after the game, but he expressed a sense of regret that he didn’t report the injury sooner. With two outs in the sixth and B.J. Upton battling through a long at-bat, Ryu said he first noticed something.After issuing ball four on his ninth pitch to Upton, Ryu winced and motioned to the Dodgers’ bench for head athletic trainer Stan Conte.“I thought I could pitch out of it,” he said, “but it just kept getting worse and worse.”Ryu (13-6) missed 20 games in April and May with left shoulder inflammation. That’s the only time Ryu has been placed on the disabled list since the Dodgers signed him out of South Korea last year. Prior to Wednesday, Dodgers pitchers had a streak of nine consecutive starts of six innings or more dating to Aug. 3.Right-hander Jamey Wright took over for Ryu and warmed up on the spot. He got the final out of the sixth inning to preserve the 3-2 deficit, but the Dodgers couldn’t tie the game despite a golden opportunity. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img A walk by Andre Ethier, and singles by Dee Gordon and Adrian Gonzalez, loaded the bases with one out in the ninth inning against Braves closer Craig Kimbrel. That brought up Matt Kemp, who had already extended his hitting streak to nine games with a double. Kemp grounded into a routine 4-6-3 double play to end the game, making him 0-for-8 this season with the bases loaded. The Dodgers left a total of 11 runners on base against the Braves, whom they had beaten in five straight meetings.The loss ended the Dodgers’ three-game winning streak and narrowed their lead in the National League West standings to five games.The Dodgers took a 2-0 lead in the second inning against Braves starter Ervin Santana (12-6). Kemp led off with a double to left-center field and scored on an RBI single by Carl Crawford. With Crawford on third base and two outs, Miguel Rojas singled up the middle to score the Dodgers’ second run.Atlanta scored single runs against Ryu in the second, fourth and fifth innings to take a 3-2 lead.A controversial instant replay decision in the eighth inning went against the Dodgers. With one out, first-base umpire Lance Barksdale ruled that Juan Uribe had beaten out a chopper to second baseman Phil Gosselin. Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez challenged the call, which was overturned after a lengthy review.Mattingly questioned video replays that showed the ball entering first baseman Freddie Freeman’s glove at the same time Uribe crossed first base.“For me, that ball’s not in the back of his glove when (Uribe’s) foot is on the bag,” Mattingly said. “It’s just interpretation. That’s why I feel like the language in a lot of this has to get cleared up where it’s strict, where this is an out and this is a stand. One day, we see the same call get overturned, one day it stands, one day it doesn’t. It’s almost like the crew that’s in New York’s interpretation of what it’s saying.“I hope that we just clarify the language on all this stuff.”Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis agreed.“There’s a little bit of gray area there, what actually constitutes an out at first base,” Ellis said. “Is it a ball in the mitt? A ball squeezed in the mitt? I just think there’s some confusion there that could easily be cleared up with some conversation.”Uribe’s take?“I was out,” he said.The greater concern for the Dodgers is Ryu, whose 13 wins are tied for second in the National League. “Our starting rotation has been keeping us in ballgames, giving us a great chance to win,” Ellis said. “Especially the top half” – Ryu, Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw – “those three guys.”last_img read more

LeBron James to miss Warriors game Saturday due to ‘load management’

first_imgJames played his first game Thursday since suffering a groin strain Dec. 25 against the Warriors. While he scored 24 points with 14 rebounds and nine assists in an overtime win against the Clippers, he said afterward he was not close to 100 percent after missing 17 games.“The first quarter was just kind of a feel-out quarter to see how my groin would react,” James said. “I didn’t really run as hard as I’m accustomed to on breaks. I had a couple of drives, just trying to mentally get into it…. Related News “I’m not there all the way, as far as physically. My timing … is 80 percent right now, but it felt good to be 80 and be back on the floor and put on a Lakers’ uniform again.” LeBron James, Kevin Durant wear Colin Kaepernick jerseys to show support LeBron James will not play Saturday against the Warriors, according to Yahoo Sports.A source told the site the reason is “load management.” center_img Celtics have ‘little to no concern’ Kyrie Irving will leave for Lakers, report says The Lakers next play Tuesday at Indiana, their third of six straight road games. None of the remaining games after that, against Boston, Philadelphia and Atlanta, are back-to-back contests, which would be good if the Lakers are trying to ease James back in over the next week or so.But Los Angeles (27-25) clearly needs its superstar on the floor. While James sat out, the team went 6-11 and is now ninth in the Western Conference.last_img read more

Over 4,000 athletes for INSPORTS Primary Champs

first_imgConsidered one of the country’s leading grass-roots meet, the 36th annual Institute of Sports (INSPORTS) Primary Schools Athletics Championships will see 92 schools, with over 4,000 athletes, squaring off for the coveted elite title as all-island primary school champions and $500,000 in equipment from May 11-14 at the National Stadium.Having started with five schools in 1981, the event has since grown tremendously and action will start at 8 o’clock each morning.Naggo Head Primary, considered “a true champion” by their principal, Andrea McGivvens, remains confident of winning a seventh title this year. Her school has won five consecutive titles and six overall.Waterford Primary, with 10 titles, has won the most times.”Our athletes have done well, and it is an event that we look forward to. Many of our athletes have gone on to high school and have done very well,” said the principal, while citing names such as Stephon Fennell (former Kingston College standout), Tyler Mason (Jamaica College), and Calabar High’s Michael Stephens.”Naggo Head has really prepared them well, and I hope they can go on to represent Jamaica,” she continued.USAIN BOLT”There is no name as huge as Usain Bolt, and I implore all principals of primary schools to get on board and get all your athletes involved in the programme because this is where we unearth the talents.”Not everybody is going to be an accountant, a teacher, a lawyer or a doctor. Usain Bolt is not one of such, but I can tell you, he is making millions,” she added.She called on the “administrative efforts of principals to continue nurturing youngsters”.World 400m youth champion Christopher Taylor was a recent standout at this meet, breaking the 400m record.The event will see three new schools competing this year; Content Gap, May Pen, and Lacovia Primary.The main sponsor is INSPORTS, while Hi Lyte and Tropical Blue are associate sponsors.INSPORTS administrative director Ian Andrews implored: “Let it be about development and winning the reward.”We are living up to our mandate, which is to unearth, promote, develop, and nurture the talents. That’s what we are doing at the Institute of Sports,” he said.Andrews added: “Regrettably, we don’t promote enough the achievements that we are having at the Primary level.”Meet director Anthony Gibbs said 41 events would be contested by the 4,117 athletes from the schools, which span the length and breadth of Jamaica to include places like Portland, Clarendon, and St James.last_img read more
