Boxing: Wilder will bounce back, his fiancee assures boxing buffs

first_imgDeontay Wilder’s fiancee, Telli Swift, is standing like a rock behind her lover, come rain, sunshine and she appears to have confirmed that the Bronze Bomber will activate the option of a trilogy bout with Tyson Fury. Wilder was condemned to the first defeat of his professional career in Las Vegas, with the American’s trainer throwing in the towel midway through the seventh round. But despite being left battered and bloodied by Fury, Wilder’s camp seem likely to exercise a third fight between the pair. As per the contract penned before the duo faced off for the WBC heavyweight world title, the loser would be able to secure another rematch within 30 days of the clash. But after Wilder was dominated by an inspired Fury, with the Alabama native knocked down in the third and fifth rounds, talk concerning a unification fight with Anthony Joshua began to gather pace. Wilder’s partner, however, confirmed that the dethroned star is seeking an immediate shot at revenge. After a lengthy tribute to Wilder, penned following the end of his five-year reign as WBC champion, she wrote on Instagram: ‘#WilderFury3 here we come!! #thesagacontinues #stillourchamp #bombzquad’. Loading… Fury, as the winner of the second bout, would be entitled to a 60/40 percentage split of all the money on the line for the fight, plus the earnings from PPV and ticket sales. Reality TV star and model Swift predicted before the highly-anticipated encounter that Wilder would knock out his opponent, and re-posted a picture on social media in an attempt to taunt Fury. Wilder admitted after his corner conceded defeat that he would have preferred to continue to defend his crown, revealing he was prepared to ‘go out on my shield’. Fury’s promoter Frank Warren also believes that a rematch is likely to happen.

Hopeful Ronaldinho eager to dump retirement to play for Gimnasia

first_img Loading… Former Barcelona star Ronaldinho is considering coming out of retirement to play under Diego Maradona at Gimnasiay Esgrima La Plata.The Argentine version of Marca cites reports from El Día that Maradona is keen to include him in his squad while he has reportedly been told by the Brazilian that he is open to the move.Ronaldinho, now aged 40, has not played professionally since 2015 when he was at Brazilian club Fluminense, so a move to the top-flight of Argentina may seem outlandish.The main stumbling block for such an eye-catching move is the fact that Ronaldinho is still being detained in Paraguay following his arrest in the South American nation in March.Ronaldinho has been under house arrest in the Paraguayan capital Asunción, in the Hotel Palmaroga, with the coronavirus pandemic slowing the process down.The former Brazil international and his brother Roberto de Assis, who is also his business manager, were jailed on 5 March for using fake passports, as reported by Marca.Former Brazil international Ronaldinho eager to return to football at 4033 days later, it was confirmed that, following the $1.6m bail money being deposited, the pair left the jail and are now both under house arrest in a hotel in Asuncion the capital of Paraguay.“I never imagined that something like this could happen to me, it was a big blow,” said the former Barça player, as cited by Marca. “I came to Paraguay to launch an online casino and a book.

Chittenango girls soccer rallies past CBA in OT, stays undefeated

first_imgThrough five games, and five lopsided victories, the Chittenango girls soccer team had not faced serious stress.All of that changed, though, in last Monday night’s visit to Alibrandi Stadium, where Christian Brothers Academy had the Bears in trouble before a late comeback and a goal in overtime produced a 4-3 win over the Brothers.No one on Chittenango’s defense could contain CBA forward Kennedy Paciaga, who twice found the net in the first half, helping the Brothers move out in front 2-1. Tags: Chittenangosoccer Paciaga added a third goal for the hat trick in the second half, yet did not get much help from her teammates, and that proved the difference.The Bears tied it, 3-3, by the end of regulation, and then scored in the first OT period. Hanging on from there, Chittenango needed every bit of the 10 saves that goalie Cassidy Kelly produced.Sarah Martin scored twice to lead the Bears’ attack. Maryanna Garcia and Brooke Walters had the other goals, with Ally Shoemaker getting credit for an assist.center_img This was just the first of four tough road games in a row for Chittenango, who now had to go to Skaneateles last Wednesday night but, once again, proved worthy of the challenge, defeating the Lakers 3-1.No OT was required as Martin scored twice more in the second half, giving her 15 goals this season as she is already on a pace to top the 28 she scored as junior. Wagner had the other goal as Moon got two assists and Garcia added an assist.From the start, Skaneateles had plenty of opportunities, only to get kept off the board in a 0-0 first half. Kelly’s 16 overall saves would spark Chittenango as she only surrendered a second-half goal to Maeve McNeil.After all this, the Bears have to go to state no. 13-ranked Westhill Tuesday and state no. 10-ranked Marcellus Thursday  to challenge those long-time powerhouses along with a game against Cicero-North Syracuse at week’s end.Coming off its first defeat of the season to CBA on Sept. 12, the Chittenango boys soccer team faced another big test when it visited Marcellus last Friday, the Mustangs having knocked off no. 1- ranked and defending state Class B champion Westhill earlier in the week.It proved too tough for the Bears, who took a 4-1 loss, the lone goal coming from Anthony Roberts, assisted by Arthur Paul.Will Simmons was busy in the net throughout the night, recording nine saves, but Marcellus overwhelmed him as Matt Kershaw scored twice, with Tristan Jarvi and Josh Wilkinson getting the other goals.Tuning up for Marcellus, Chittenango bashed visiting Jordan-Elbridge 7-0 last Tuesday night as three different players – Paul, Sean Larsson and Owen Bailey– produced two goals apiece.Tom McIntosh had the other goal, also getting an assist as Callum Reed produced two assists. Noah Hardy and Alek Reymond earned one assist apiece.Even with the loss to Marcellus, the Bears were 5-2 as it would pass the midway point of the regular season this week with games against Solvay, Mexico and Camden, all within a span of four days.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more

Scott Shafer says Tim Daoust is ready to be defensive coordinator if necessary

first_imgPINEHURST, N.C. — It was a hypothetical question, but Scott Shafer gave a very real answer. If defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough were to get a job elsewhere, would defensive line coach Tim Daoust be the defensive coordinator in waiting?“Sure. I mean. He’s ready to do it in my opinion,” Shafer said. “I love having Chuck Bullough here, but there’s something great about knowing Timmy Daoust is ready to do the same thing.”Shafer spoke on Tuesday at Atlantic Coast Conference Media Day about how Daoust started at the bottom of the coaching ladder as a graduate assistant and video coordinator in 2002 at Northern Illinois. He fondly recalled how Daoust worked his way up as he stuck with Shafer during his time at Western Michigan.“It’s great that he had to go through the layered process from being a first-time job video coordinator slash GA at the same time in the Mid-American Conference where we didn’t have the opportunity to pay those kids enough and work his way up,” Shafer said.Now it appears he might be on the verge of moving up even further.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Published on July 21, 2015 at 12:48 pm Contact Sam: | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Football set for Fresno State showdown

first_imgPREDICTION: 35-17, USC Junior running back Stephen Carr and senior wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. head downfield against Washington State during the 2018 season. (Tal Volk | Daily Trojan) With a new offensive coordinator in Graham Harrell and a roster that looks very different from that of last season, pinning down exactly what type of team the Trojans will be this year is a tough task. The first step toward finding out comes Saturday when the Trojans take on a Fresno State team that finished 12-2 and ranked No. 18 nationally at the end of last season. TROJAN OFFENSE VS BULLDOG DEFENSE After an offseason filled with uncertainty, USC football once again finds itself preparing for another season. Following the unmitigated disaster of last year’s 5-7 season, expectations for the team are less certain than they have been in nearly two decades.  The Trojans’ receiving depth does not end there — they also welcome back dangerous playmakers like sophomore Devon Williams and redshirt junior Velus Jones Jr. and have added talented freshmen like Munir McClain and Drake London. The Trojan secondary, although talented, is just as inexperienced — cornerbacks sophomore Olaijah Griffin and redshirt freshman Isaac Taylor-Stuart will be starting for the first time in their young careers, and safeties redshirt junior Isaiah Pola-Mao and sophomore Talanoa Hufanga have just seven starts between them.  On the ground, Fresno State should be a middle-of-the-pack unit. Lead back junior Ronnie Rivers was effective last season — averaging a healthy 5.6 yards per game and scoring 10 touchdowns — yet he only accrued 132 carries. With the uncertainty surrounding the Bulldogs’ passing offense, don’t be too surprised to see them lean further on the run game this week then they did last year. Both of these units will be hard to pin down until we see them in action. Fresno State’s passing offense was one of the most efficient in the country last season, but quarterback Marcus McMaryion is gone, along with two of his top three receivers. The reins of the offense are now in the hands of senior quarterback Jorge Reyna, who has just 12 career pass attempts. However, this is not a pure Air Raid offense like that employed by head coach Mike Leach at Washington State. Harrell and Helton have both been clear about their intent to pound the ball on the ground as well — the run game doesn’t seem like it’s going to be an afterthought. Harrell has brought an entirely new offensive philosophy to USC, a spread passing game more akin to the Air Raid offenses prevalent across the college football landscape than to the pro-style offense USC has always employed. The offense will look to make things easier for the quarterback, simplifying route combinations and allowing for quicker reads. USC’s offensive line is one of the team’s biggest question marks this season, and the Fresno State front should offer a test to start the year. Although they ranked among the worst teams in the nation in sack rate, the Bulldogs were stout against the run last year, allowing the 30th-fewest rushing yards per game and the second-fewest rushing touchdowns. Expect both junior Stephen Carr and redshirt junior Vavae Malepeai to get significant reps at running back, and redshirt freshman running back Markese Stepp has had a phenomenal offseason. It’s possible for any of the three to lead the backfield in touches. USC’s wide receiving corps should also contribute greatly to making life easier for sophomore quarterback JT Daniels. Senior Michael Pittman Jr. looks primed to be one of the nation’s top receivers, while savvy route runner redshirt junior Tyler Vaughns and uber-gifted sophomore Amon-Ra St. Brown also return as starters.  TROJAN OFFENSE VS BULLDOG DEFENSE The Bulldogs’ front seven is led by senior middle linebacker Mykal Walker, who was named to the All-Mountain West First Team last season. Behind him is a secondary in transition. The Bulldogs lost two starters there, yet their talented returners in the defensive backfield still make the unit Fresno State’s best defensive asset. Senior safety Juju Hughes and defensive back Jaron Bryant are both playmakers who made the Thorpe Award preseason watch list. The battle between that secondary and USC’s receivers should be one of the most entertaining matchups of the night. Despite the uncertainty surrounding the Trojans, the raw talent on the roster should be more than enough to overcome a Fresno State team that lost most of its best performers from last year. The story would be different if this was last year’s Bulldog squad, but it isn’t. Expect the deficiencies of the Trojan roster to show — hiccups from Daniels, offensive line miscues and secondary blunders are likely to be noticeable Saturday. Even still, the talent of the new-look Trojans and their new direction as a team will likely be enough to overwhelm Fresno State.last_img read more

Late run propels Syracuse to 74-63 overtime win over Notre Dame

first_img Published on January 5, 2020 at 7:10 pm Contact Danny: | @DannyEmerman Facebook Twitter Google+ When Syracuse opted to send Anaya Peoples to the free-throw line down three points with 34 seconds left, the Orange were betting on two misses and a 3 on the other end, seemingly impossible.SU had just endured a 1-for-17 stretch from 3, but Peoples — a 51% free-throw shooter — gave the Orange hope by missing both freebies. Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman called timeout with 16.7 seconds left and another chance for some X’s and O’s magic.On Thursday, to beat No. 8 Florida State in overtime, Hillsman drew up a play he concocted three years prior on a cocktail napkin at an Outback Steakhouse. This time, his play call didn’t create a wide-open shot, but the result was the same.As the clock wound down in regulation, point guard Kiara Lewis shrugged off a ball screen, took her defender to the left wing and launched a step-back 3 over her. Bucket. A Strautmane rejection on the defensive end forced the game into overtime, and an 11-0 run to open OT gave SU its largest lead of the contest.In the end, it was a 29-8 Syracuse run over the last 12 minutes of the game that propelled SU to a 74-63 win over Notre Dame, its first in their last 22 meetings. The Orange (8-6, 2-1 Atlantic Coast) didn’t play their best basketball, but Notre Dame (6-9, 1-2) couldn’t match their late-game runs and defense in the Carrier Dome on Sunday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBefore Lewis could send it to overtime, where the Orange completely dominated Notre Dame, Syracuse struggled to generate much offense. When Notre Dame played zone, it left both corners open for SU shooters, but Lewis, Gabrielle Cooper, Digna Strautmane and Emily Engstler couldn’t convert from there.In total, Syracuse went 1-for-12 on corner 3s — one of the most efficient shots in basketball — on mostly open looks. Overall, the Orange went 7-for-36 (19.4%) from 3.Still, Syracuse never trailed in the first half. Lewis and Engstler combined for 50 of SU’s 74 points, and no other player reached double digits. SU’s largest lead in the first half was eight, while Notre Dame hung around mostly fueled by a duo of its own — guard Destinee Walker and center Mikayla Vaughn.To start the game, Walker scored 12 of the Fighting Irish’s first 16 points. SU lost her on the perimeter off an under-the-basket inbound pass and again in transition for triples. Down low, Vaughn gave Syracuse’s bigs issues on both ends. The Notre Dame center who missed almost all of November and December with a knee injury recorded 16 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks.After leaving the locker room tied at halftime, the Fighting Irish won the third quarter 18-10. When Notre Dame toggled its defense from zone to man-to-man, Syracuse’s halfcourt offense went stagnant – caught too often with stationary players around the perimeter. Shortly after nearly five minute scoring drought in the second quarter, Syracuse had consecutive one-pass possessions that ended in contested 3-point misses. In the third quarter, the same followed, and SU went 0-for-8 from deep.With seven-and-a-half minutes remaining in the game and Syracuse in the middle of an ice-cold 1-for-17 stretch from deep, the Orange stared down a 10-point deficit. That’s when SU’s run commenced. Two Engstler buckets sandwiched a pair of Teisha Hyman free throws, then a Cooper 3 finally broke the team’s shooting slump.In overtime, after Lewis scored Syracuse’s last six points of regulation, the Orange ditched the 3-ball and went inside. Layups by Cooper, Engstler, Strautmane and Hyman opened overtime and stunned Notre Dame into a timeout.Syracuse’s win ended with a resounding 14-3 run, taking SU into a week off before its next matchup in Coral Gables, Florida against the Hurricanes on Jan. 12.Heading into the new year, late-game execution was one of SU’s weaknesses. They had lost three games to AP Top 25 teams after holding leads in the final minute. After their past two overtime victories, it appears the Orange have shaken that trend.

Transforming America Through Interaction

first_imgTransforming America Through Interaction (TATI), Inc. was formed after the tragic passing of 19-year old Tatiana (“Tati”) Renèe McIntosh in 2007.This year, the 10th anniversary of her passing, the non-profit organization continues to serve youth from the Caribbean-American community by providing safety awareness, scholarship opportunities and a summer mentorship program while promoting Caribbean-American culture.TATI, Inc. held its annual Family Fun Picnic on Dania Beach last weekend at the Dr. Von D. Mizell and Eula Johnson Park (formerly John U. Lloyd Beach State Park). The event draws a truly diverse crowd, and this recent gathering was no exception.“This is a fitting location,” says founder, Tanya Ragbeer, mother of Tatiana, who was there with her husband Cary and youngest daughter Katrina. “The history of this location is so rich. It opened as a segregated beach over 30 years ago, and was renamed last year after the first blacks to desegregate the beach. It is a fitting place, to not only celebrate our Caribbean heritage, as we are a colorful people, but also to hopefully understand and honor what transpired here.”The annual Caribbean-American Heritage Youth Essay Competition prize was awarded to Pompano Beach High School 11th grader, Rebecca Yap.“I basically wrote in my essay that I wanted to be in Jamaica in the 1960s. My dad moved to America from Kingston when he was 12, so Jamaica, my culture, is a big part of my life. I grew up listening to reggae and Bob Marley, and that was right after independence and was a great time for the island socially and economically,” she said.The event had music by popular DJ Mark Swaby, games, prizes and surprises.Surprise guest Stephen “Cat” Coore of Third World came out to chill, and had a special message for Caribbean-American youth.“Everyone just have to know sey we are who we are, and just keep it that way; don’t try to be anybody else.”Fitting statement, as they celebrated Caribbean-American Heritage Month and Tatiana, who was passionate about uplifting our youth, and for uniting Caribbean countries in Florida.Click this link to view previous story on TATI, Inc.:  Local charity TATI honors daughter’s memory Back row (l-r): Cary Ragbeer (Advisory), Garfield Wright, Georgia Wright, Dave Smith, Albert Lettman (President), Philip Ragbeer.
