Deontay Wilder ‘tried to get me sacked from pundit job after saying Fury should have won first fight’, Malignaggi claims

We got away with it.’“Just run with it and say, ‘I’m gonna make this even better next time, I’ve got the knockdowns.’ Don’t go saying like people are out of their minds for thinking that you lose the first fight when you got outclassed in the first fightPaulie Malignaggi“Say you even feel like the result wasn’t a robbery, but don’t go saying like people are out of their minds for thinking that you lose the first fight when you got outclassed in the first fight.“That was my whole issue with this whole thing. He tried to get me fired from Showtime and all this other stuff. He was trying to have me and [Steve] Farhood removed.“I don’t have an issue with you being competitive and you even not liking the criticism. But you have to also be able to understand the difference between constructive criticism and hating criticism…“Now, you fast forward to after this fight, again, it’s just like the first fight where you say you got robbed and everybody’s cheering you on, ‘You got robbed.’“Now you’re saying after this fight, ’That thing was heavy, that outfit was heavy.’“Not one of your team has the balls to say [the truth]. I always had my best friend.“He was always real. He would be like, ‘Bro, shut the F up. What are you saying right now?’“And as a best friend you’re not going to throw him out of your circle just for being honest.“You always need that real guy, at least one real guy. Because if everybody’s just agreeing with you – a bunch of yes-men- you start to lose track of reality.“And I feel like Deontay putting out that excuse is just another sign to say there’s too man yes-men around this guy.”Tyson Fury shares extended never before seen clip of conversation with dad John after sensational Deontay Wilder win What’s This “Trick” Called?

Selkirk looks to rebuild athletic program for next season

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThe Selkirk College Athletic department is looking to reload after the school had its application for dispensation denied by the British Columbia Colleges’ Athletic Association (BCCAA) Executive earlier this week.“We have to analyse where do we go from here,” Selkirk College Athletic Director Kim Verign told The Nelson Daily. “We have to try to start the rebuilding process right now.”The college wanted the BCCAA executive to allow only the women’s volleyball team to participate during the 2010-11 season after it was realized that the men’s team could not fulfill its league requirements as some of the men’s student athletes could not fully commit to the league schedule. However, the request was denied due to the fact that league schedules are based on both genders traveling and competing at the same time. “The program is not completely gone,” Verigin explains. “We’re now going to play a season of exhibition to get back on our feet and establish what we do in the future.”Verigin said the men’s team was down to six committed players, which was the reason for the sudden appeal to the BCCAA executive.There was a time when the Saints volleyball program was considered one of the powers in the BCCAA.During a three-year cycle Selkirk won three consecutive Totem Conference titles (the name of the league) in 1989, 90 and 91. Selkirk also fielded teams in soccer, basketball and hockey.However, interest declined forcing the school to withdraw from the BCCAA.In 2006, the volleyball program was resurrected. The teams played a season of exhibition games before re-applying, and being accepted, into the BCCAA the following season.But according to Verigin, Selkirk saw a mass exodus of players from last year’s men’s squad, mostly due to graduation and students moving on to further schooling at another institution.Combined with a lack of varsity teams playing at the West Kootenay high school level, Selkirk now has a much smaller number of volleyball players to draw on playing in Castlegar.“Absolutely,” exclaimed Verigin when about his concerns regarding the sport at the high school level. “The graduating class form this past year’s senior volleyball is very low in numbers and that significantly reduces our recruiting from the area.”Joe Moreira, former coach of the women’s program at Selkirk College, believes low numbers is not the only concern.“In my three years as the Selkirk College women’s coach I came to the disappointing realization that it was a huge task to keep local players at home and to recruit player from other areas of our region,” he said. “I considered this to me my own personal experience and challenge and believed that (men’s coach) Mike Perra would have more success.”The bulk recruits at Selkirk generally come from West Kootenay schools, but Saints’ coaches also finds players from outside the region.Another hurdle facing Selkirk is the fact that some schools in the BCCAA, like UBC/O in Kelowna, are preparing to enter the CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport).To make a smooth transition to the CIS, alumni are shelling massive amounts of money into programs to hire full time coaches and recruiters to ensure the best players in the province come to play.The only team remaining at Selkirk playing provincially is men’s hockey, which toils in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more

Fifty years of the Freedom Charter

first_img27 June 2005President Thabo Mbeki lit a flame of freedom in Kliptown, Soweto on Sunday to mark the official opening of the Walter Sisulu Square of Dedication, the site of the Freedom Charter monument.The Charter, adopted by a People’s Congress of thousands on 26 June 1955, is seen by many as the foundation of South Africa’s 1996 Constitution.Kliptown and the Freedom CharterOn 26 June 1955 over 3 000 people made their way through police cordons to gather in a dusty square in Kliptown to draw up the Freedom Charter.Accompanied by former president Nelson Mandela and Albertina Sisulu, the wife of the late struggle hero Walter, Mbeki first read the wall of remembrance of the historic event, the Freedom Charter.The President then lit the “flame of freedom” to symbolise the opening of the Square before unveiling a plaque in honour of Walter Sisulu, who died in 2003.Sitting in a wheelchair, Albertina Sisulu said she was happy that she had “seen this” and was thankful to the people of South Africa for remembering her husband in such a manner.Addressing the 20 000-strong crowd, Mbeki said the adoption of the Freedom Charter was a commitment to accomplish the noble vision spelt out in the document.In the same way that it took time and great sacrifices for the country to achieve liberation, Mbeki said, so it would take time and demand new sacrifices to fully translate into reality the vision, born in struggle, represented by the Freedom Charter.On Monday, Cabinet ministers will gather in a multipurpose hall overlooking the square for a formal sitting of Parliament – the first time that the National Assembly and National Council of Provinces will have a joint sitting outside Cape Town.Kliptown urban renewal projectThe Walter Sisulu square forms part of the Kliptown urban renewal project, an initiative supported by the provincial government and the city of Johannesburg to the tune of R160-million.“Kliptown is undergoing major infrastructural, environmental and economic development aimed at transforming it into a significant tourist destination and heritage site, as well as prosperous residential and commercial area,” Gauteng Housing MEC Nomvula Mokonyane said last week.The development programme aims to integrate the area’s local economy with that of greater Johannesburg, creating business opportunities and employment in the retail, manufacturing, tourism, transport, services and construction industries, and increasing transport efficiencies to and within Kliptown.It includes providing new housing, rehabilitating the Kliptown River, cleaning up the wetlands and creating a green space for recreation.The square, already proclaimed a national heritage site, will feature two squares representing the period of transition.Its 10 pillars represent the clauses of the Freedom Charter, while paving featuring crosses celebrate the freedom to vote.The site will be used as a gathering place and venue for concerts and other cultural events.BuaNews and SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

first_imgThe Jetstar Asia Northern Territory livery in Darwin. Photo: Darwin International Airport Travelers in Asia are about to get a dose of camels, kangaroos and red dust thanks to a unique Jetstar Asia livery showcasing Australia’s Top End.The Northern Territory-themed “flying billboard” was officially launched at Darwin International Airport Friday, accompanied by an announcement Jetstar Asia would boost the number of seats between Singapore and Darwin by 25 percent with daily services starting in April.Jetstar Asia has been flying to Darwin for a decade and chief executive Bara Pasupathi said the airline had seen steady and strong demand during that time.“By offering up to seven regular services a week on our Airbus 320, we are committed to providing more options for travelers from Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and the rest of Southeast Asia to discover Darwin,’’ he said.READ: Malindo Air spreads its wings with new Adelaide service.“The livery collaboration with NT Tourism and NT Airports is the first of a number of opportunities that will see us increase awareness of our services and entice more visitors to explore this incredible destination”.The livery is part of wider moves by Darwin International Airport to partner with local organizations to stimulate tourism and aims to showcase the NT to a new audience.In addition to signature wildlife and landmarks, it features the logo of the Top End’s  18-day celebration of art, music, theatre and dance: the Darwin Festival.jetstatrTargeted campaigns in Asian markets have combined with investments with Singaporean wholesalers to boost visitors by 14 percent in the six months ended December 2018.There has also been work with Qantas and Jetstar Asia to create new itineraries through Darwin to Uluru and Alice Springs.“The new Darwin-Uluru service and additional capacity on services to Alice Springs also opens up the Red Centre to our close Asian neighbours,’’ NT Airports chief executive Ian Kew said.Kew said the iconic natural earth tones of the Red Centre and Uluru made them “must-do destinations” that were increasingly sought after by Asian travelers seeking a unique experience.“Being less than five hours from Singapore makes the entire Northern Territory very accessible to Asian markets,” he said.Disclosure: Steve Creedy also writes for the Australian Airports Association.last_img read more

Murray outclasses Anderson to take fourth Queen’s title

first_imgBritain’s Andy Murray won the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club by dismantling big-serving South African Kevin Anderson 6-3, 6-4 in a one-sided final on Sunday.To the delight of the home crowd, the world number three showed no sign of weariness when returning to court two hours after completing his semi-final against Viktor Troicki which had been held up by rain the previous evening.He had resumed at 3-3 in the first set against the Serb and quickly established control to come through 6-3, 7-6(4). Murray was confident his return of serve would enable him to cope against the lanky Anderson, who went into the final having thundered down 96 aces in his three previous matches.So it proved, even though Anderson fired down two more aces in his first service game and soon reached three figures for the week. The top seed’s returning nevertheless enabled him to make a crucial breakthrough once in each set and his own serve never let him down.A range of drop shots and lobs also proved too subtle for Anderson, as well as suggesting that Murray is in fine fettle ahead of Wimbledon which starts a week on Monday.The first break came in the fourth game, when Murray confidently returned a 141 mile-per-hour serve, forcing his unseeded opponent to net a volley.The first set was over in just under half an hour and although Anderson again proved capable of holding his serve to love in the second, he was broken with a series of superb shots to fall 3-2 behind and was unable to recover.advertisementMurray sealed victory when the South African went wide on a service return, allowing the Briton to join John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick from the modern era as four-times winners at Queen’s.His titles have come in alternate years – 2009, 2011, 2013 and now 2015.last_img read more

Tunnel closure costs Gaza 230 million monthly official

first_imgGAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories – Egypt’s closure of tunnels used to smuggle goods into the Gaza strip has caused monthly losses of $230 million (170 million euros) to its economy, a Hamas official said Sunday.The “closure of the tunnels caused heavy losses to the industry, commerce, agriculture, transport and construction sectors” of around $230 million monthly, said Hatem Oweida, deputy economy minister for the Islamist movement Hamas that governs the strip.Essential materials were for years smuggled from Egypt into Gaza through tunnels, bypassing Israel’s blockade, but the Egyptian army recently destroyed many of those after ousting president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, a Hamas ally. Oweida said that the coastal Palestinian territory had relied on the tunnels to meet at least 40 percent of its construction supplies and raw material needs.Gaza’s unemployment rate would hit 43 percent if official border crossings remained shut and the tunnels were destroyed, Oweida warned.He added that “public revenues saw a decline after the closure of the tunnels and the tightening of the siege in the second half of 2013,” which he said would hit Hamas’ employment and temporary work programmes.Israel first imposed its land, sea and air blockade on the coastal strip in 2006 after militants there seized an Israeli soldier.It was further tightened in mid-2007 when Hamas took control of Gaza.last_img read more

LeBrons Odds of Catching Jordan

On Thursday, after LeBron James and the Miami Heat won their second consecutive N.B.A. championship, I noted on Twitter that James was on the same pace as the Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan. Both James and Jordan won their first championship at 27 and their second at 28, I wrote. Jordan went on to win four more N.B.A. titles, for a total of six.Mike Segar/Reuters LeBron James and Michael Jordan were about the same age when they won a second championship.My statement depended on a technicality, I later discovered: Jordan’s biological age was 28 when he won his first championship, in 1991, and 29 when he won his second, in 1992. However, basketball statisticians generally define a player’s age differently: by how old he was as of Feb. 1 of an N.B.A. season, the rough midpoint of the basketball calendar. Jordan’s birthday is Feb. 17.Those semantics aside, it is worth considering just how likely James might be to match or exceed Jordan’s six titles. (From this point on, we’ll use basketball statisticians’ definition of age.)Players like Jordan and James are so rare that it can be risky to compare them with anyone. Still, one reasonably useful benchmark is to evaluate players who, like James and Jordan, had won at least one Most Valuable Player award and at least one N.B.A. title as of their age-28 season, meaning that they had achieved the pinnacle of both individual and team success.By my count, there were 13 such players before James. On average, they won about two additional championships (more precisely, an average of 1.9) after their age-28 season. So a reasonable over-under line for James might be two more N.B.A. titles, or four total.It is tough to say exactly what James’s odds of catching Jordan might be, because the average conceals a wide range of outcomes among the individual players. Four of the players on the list — Magic Johnson, Moses Malone, Bob Pettit and Dave Cowens — never won another championship after their age-28 season. But four others — Jordan, Bill Russell, Bob Cousy and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar — won at least four more titles.James needs four more championships to catch Jordan, so one estimate of his odds might be 4 chances out of 13, or about 30 percent. But some of the favorable precedents, like Russell, came in an era when teams had far more ability to retain their players. Among the players on the list who played their age-28 season during the salary-cap era (since 1984-85), only Jordan won four or more titles.Jeff Haynes/Agence France-Presse — Getty Images Jordan after his fifth title with the Bulls.It seems safe to say that you would not want to bet on James at even money. There are just too many things that can go wrong with a player’s career as he ages: injury or illness, early retirement, bad teammates or bad luck.Even this year’s Heat began the season with only about a 30 percent chance of winning the title, according to the Las Vegas odds. That percentage roughly matches the historical likelihood of an N.B.A. team’s repeating as champion, which is 33 percent.So James’s chances of winning a third title next season in Miami are probably about 1 in 3. After that, his chances begin to decline. For one thing, it is less certain that James will be surrounded by strong teammates. (James has the right to opt out of his contract after next season, and even if he stays in Miami, teammates like Dwyane Wade are already seeing their skills atrophy.)More important, players in team sports typically peak in skill in their mid- to late 20s, meaning that James’s game may begin to wane. The N.B.A. is a superstar’s league, and if James goes from being M.V.P.-caliber to mere All-Star within a few years, it will considerably hurt his odds of winning more titles.I have estimated a player’s chances of winning an N.B.A. title based on his win shares, a statistic calculated by Basketball-Reference.com that measures overall value to a team. Since the introduction of the salary cap in 1984-85, excluding the two regular seasons (1998-99 and 2011-12) that were shortened by labor disputes, the best player in the league in a given season has averaged about 18 win shares, which is a reasonably good match for James’s performance over the last several years. The model estimates that such a player has about a 20 percent or 25 percent chance of winning the championship in today’s N.B.A. environment.What about the fifth-best player in the league — someone equivalent to the worst player on the All-N.B.A. team? That player has averaged about 13 win shares, which translates to only about a 10 percent chance of winning the championship.The 10th-best player in the N.B.A. at a given time has only about a 7 percent chance of winning a title, according to the model. And the 25th-best player — someone who might be the last reserve added to one of the conference All-Star teams — has about a 5 percent chance.That is not much better than an N.B.A. player chosen at random, who has a 3.3 percent chance of becoming a champion by virtue of being on one of the 30 teams. A borderline All-Star in the N.B.A., in other words, is much closer to being a role player than a superstar, at least when it comes to his odds of winning a championship.James, of course, will have considerable freedom to pick his employer. If he puts winning titles above all other considerations, he could sign on for any role with the team he perceived as having the best chance to win the championship in a given season.Few players in N.B.A. history have been willing to take things to quite that extreme. Instead, superstars expect teams to build around them — even if they are past their prime, and even if it means something as inglorious as Jordan’s late years spent with the Washington Wizards.One can forgive Jordan, who did not have anything left to prove. But to match him, James will need to win two or three more titles over the next several seasons while he still plays at an M.V.P. level, which will require good health and some good luck. Then he may need to chase the last couple of titles by being willing to play the right role with the right club.,On Thursday, after LeBron James and the Miami Heat won their second consecutive N.B.A. championship, I noted on Twitter that James was on the same pace as the Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan.

Ohio State Buckeyes in the NFL Week 8

Former Buckeyes Marshon Lattimore, Tyvis Powell and Darron Lee catch-up during the Spring Game on April 15. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Former Photo EditorOf all the former Buckeyes currently in the NFL, these five players stood out in Week 9 of the NFL season.Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel ElliottElliott had another impressive game, carrying the ball 27 times for 93 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Elliott was not expected to play this week following a decision to reinstate his suspension. However, a New York district court decision allowed him to play, providing the running back with a stay. Elliott reportedly had been trying to settle with the NFL over the suspension relating to an alleged domestic violence case, but once again was allowed to play and helped lead the Cowboys to another big win. _________________________________________San Francisco 49ers running back Carlos HydeHyde had an unusual game by his standards as he ran the ball 12 times for 41 yards along with nine catches for 84 yards, setting a new career high for receiving yards in a 20-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The game was unique for Hyde as the bruising back is typically viewed more as a rushing threat than a receiving option. Hyde was one of the only players keeping the chains moving for the 49ers’ offense, as quarterback CJ Beathard completed less than 50 percent of his passes along with an interception.._________________________________________New Orleans Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr.Ginn had another solid outing Sunday, catching four passes for 59 yards and a touchdown as the Saints continued their hot streak, winning their sixth consecutive game after starting the season 0-2. With the Saints up 23-3 with 9:46 left in the third quarter, Ginn put the icing on the cake with a 36-yard touchdown catch from Drew Brees to extend the lead and put the game out of reach. Ginn has 421 receiving yards on the season, second-most on the team behind fellow Buckeye alum Michael Thomas._________________________________________New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael ThomasThough Ginn had the standout game between the two former Buckeyes, Thomas had a productive day as well, bringing in eight catches for 65 yards Sunday in a 30-10 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Thomas continues to rack up receptions, as he is now tied for 11th in receptions among NFL receivers this season. He also ranks 17th in receiving yards. In an offense led by Pro Bowl quarterback Drew Brees who likes to spread the ball around, Thomas is having a productive sophomore season._________________________________________New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon LattimoreLattimore continues to impress as the new-and-improved Saints’ defense has found its anchor. Lattimore had four tackles and one pass defended in a 30-10 victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Lattimore was involved in a fight on the sideline that led to him being hit from behind by Buccaneers’ wide receiver Mike Evans. Evans later apologized for the hit and was suspended one game for the hit, and was charged with a 15-yard penalty during the game._________________________________________Other notable players:New York Jets linebacker Darron Lee: two tackles, 2 QB hits, one sack read more

Report Spurs Arsenal want Bailly

first_imgTottenham Hotspur and rivals Arsenal are believed to be interested in the services of Manchester United defender Eric Bailly, according to Daily Star.Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is a huge admirer of Bailly and is willing to bring the tough-tackling central defender to the club in the next transfer window come January.It remains to be seen if Manchester United are willing to sell their prized asset to a division rival, however, Bailly has become increasingly unhappy with life at Old Trafford.The Ivory Coast international was signed two years ago from Spanish club Villarreal and was United manager, Jose Mourinho’s first signing since getting appointed as the manager of the club in 2016.Bailly appeared to have established himself as one of the club’s better centre-halfs during his first season at United but injuries and lack of consistency has hampered his progress.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.However, the former Espanyol man has started just five games this season, having found himself frozen out towards the end of the last campaign.He was taken off before half time during last weekend’s 3-2 win over Newcastle when Mourinho sent on Juan Mata.last_img read more
