first_imgRelatedPosts Mike Tyson comeback fight postponed Mike Tyson beats up seven prostitutes Mike Tyson to face Roy Jones Jr Evander Holyfield has uploaded yet another training compilation as he bids to return to the ring in a potential fight with Mike Tyson, this time showing himself sparring against Wladimir Klitschko.The 57-year-old former heavyweight world champion has announced he is looking to take part in exhibition bouts for charity and is in talks to fight old rival Tyson, who is making his own comeback. Holyfield looked in phenomenal shape as he shared footage of his training regime this week, with Klitschko popping up part way through the video holding a clipboard.Quite how big a role the Ukrainian is playing in Holyfield’s comeback is still unknown, but in a new montage uploaded on Friday he was seen sparring against the veteran American.Klitschko, who last fought against Anthony Joshua at Wembley Stadium in 2017, was in the United States for work when the coronavirus crisis hit and has been unable to return to Europe.He has been living in south Florida for the past few months and seems to have ignored social distancing rules to link up with Holyfield at Miami gym Elev8tion Fitness.“I’m feeling stronger and stronger as each day passes,” Holyfield wrote on Instagram alongside the latest video. “I’m looking forward to stepping back into the ring this year.”Klitschko responded with his own message accompanying a shot of the former champs clenching fists, saying: “You wanna know what’s the “Real Deal? Will power! Physical power and brain power are equal in importance. Age is just a number!”In the video, D.r Steelhammer watched Holyfield skip while wearing a weighted vest and gives him some words of encouragement as he does lunges with an enormous chain hanging over his shoulders.Klitschko also spars with Holyfield at the very end of the video, though there was a whole lot of distance between the punches being thrown adding further weight to suggestions that the training clips have been tweaked to flatter the veteran American.— Tags: Evander Holyfieldmike tysonWladimir Klitschkolast_img read more

first_imgSOUTHAMPTON, England (CMC) – Hosts England are not having any sleepless nights over West Indies’ pace attack.In fact, head coach Trevor Bayliss said yesterday the tournament favourites were quite capable of handling the hostility from the likes of Oshane Thomas and Sheldon Cottrell, when the two teams clash at the Rose Bowl tomorrow.“We can handle anything that is thrown at us,” he said.“I have not seen too many with express pace here just yet but we have a couple of good ones too so I expect it to be tit for tat.”Thomas, Cottrell and all-rounder Andre Russell have all bowled aggressively in the World Cup with good effect, and have given West Indies excellent starts in their three games so far.In their opener, they blasted out Pakistan for 105, reduced Australia to 38 for four in their second game and had South Africa on the run at 29 for two in their third outing before rain forced an abandonment of the fixture.However, England also boast the likes of Mark Wood and Barbadian Jofra Archer, both of whom have consistently topped speeds of 95 miles per hour.Bayliss said he expected a heated contest, especially after the 2-2 draw in the five-match series in the Caribbean earlier this year.“We will have to play at our best to come away with a win. In the Caribbean, we were a little bit up and down. They bowled fast but then Mark Wood made a few of their guys jump up and down,” he pointed out.“The wicket here is reasonably flat and it has been in the past. There have been a few more wickets in the World Cup than there has been in the last few years, so I expect the fast bowlers are rubbing their hands together.”West Indies lie sixth in the 10-team standings on three points following a win, a defeat and a no-result in their three matches.England, meanwhile, are second on four points after pulling off two wins and tasting defeat to Pakistan in three outings.last_img read more

first_img Published on January 24, 2018 at 10:44 pm Wanted: reliable scorer and distributor in the paint.That was the job opening headed into Syracuse’s matchup against Boston College on Wednesday night. Because while junior center Paschal Chukwu has reached double-figures in four of his last eight games, he does not possess the court vision, shooting ability or distribution skill that SU needs out of one of its bigs.Enter Marek Dolezaj, a freshman forward who displayed Wednesday night why he, not starting forward Matthew Moyer, fits best at the four position for the Orange (14-6, 3-4 Atlantic Coast). In Syracuse’s 81-63 victory over Boston College (13-8, 3-5), a team that beat Duke and Florida State earlier this season, Dolezaj scored a career-high 12 points, while shooting a perfect 4-for-4 from the floor and charity stripe. He collected a pair of assists and steals over a career-high 35 minutes. Not to mention, he had a game-high eight rebounds.Yet here’s the thing: none of that was an anomaly. Rather, it was the result of a several-months-long progression in both his shot and ability to create for himself in the paint.Meanwhile, Moyer, who has started all 20 of SU’s games this season, exited the BC contest about five minutes in with a sprained left ankle. He will be re-evaluated Thursday. His status is unclear, and he could miss significant time, depending on the severity of the sprain. Either way, he had reached double-figures only twice since his 18-point explosion against Connecticut, and he is neither the passer or shooter that is Dolezaj.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen Moyer exited the game Wednesday, the tenor of the Syracuse offense changed. Dolezaj’s entrance coincided with a 36-23 SU run to cap off the first half, including a 13-3 mini run.“He changed the game,” said junior point guard Frank Howard, who scored 18 points. “With him flashing and cutting, making the hockey assists, I don’t think he gets enough recognition. The little dump-offs, hitting the open guy. He’s a smart player, talented, finding his spots, and he’s being confident.”Moyer, who stands a solid 6-foot-8, 215 pounds, is a strong defense player, able to stay tall against potent forwards. Yet it’s worth noting he has only five blocks to Dolezaj’s 17 on the season, and they rebound the same. Dolezaj has nearly the triple the number of assists as Moyer.Part of why Dolezaj struggled to get-going in conference play was a result of more physical defenses, head coach Jim Boeheim said. The difference Wednesday, Boeheim said, was that the Eagles played looser defense on him. But even when faced with physicality, Dolezaj finished on Wednesday. For example, Dolezaj finished a layup to push SU’s lead to nine early in the second half.“He finished those plays,” Boeheim said. “Early in the year, he bobbled it, missing those. This game he finished those and that’s a big difference.”Don’t discount Dolezaj for his lack of strength. Boeheim said in November that him being light — he is 6 feet 9 inches but only 180 pounds — does not matter, comparing him to former SU standout and 2005 first-round NBA pick Hakim Warrick. Both were light as freshmen, but that “has nothing to do with it,” Boeheim said, because being thin means being quicker.There are other encouraging signs, because for Dolezaj, the steep part of the learning curve could be nearing its end. Eric Devendorf, Syracuse’s assistant strength and conditioning coach, said that when Dolezaj is more aggressive and stays firm with the ball in the high post — a position in which SU has produced hardly any offense so far — he can open up space for Tyus Battle, Oshae Brissett, Howard and Chukwu.Boeheim also said in November that Dolezaj’s shooting was “a long ways away.” He didn’t miss a shot Wednesday.“It’s hard to improve your shooting in one year and he has,” Boeheim said. “His free throw shot, he’s got perfect form. The 15-footer he took, he had really good form with that and he couldn’t do that early in the year. It’s a big part of his game.”Dolezaj said the SU coaching staff completely changed his shooting form when he arrived on campus. That, he said, contributed to why his shooting mechanics were inconsistent. He has worked at the craft, though, by rising more in his shot, raising his shoulder higher and shooting with only one hand, not two.Of course, having both Dolezaj and Moyer clicking at the same time would be the perfect scenario. But Moyer’s injury, while likely a minor one, may just have given the keys to a budding Dolezaj. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgWith nine weeks already gone in the Normalisation Committee Special Competition, the two groups are starting to shape up nicely.Seven matches were played on Sunday with only Asante Kotoko not taking to the field of the 15 participating teams.This gave Medeama an opportunity to go five points clear of the Kumasi side when they travelled to Eleven Wonders but it was not a good weekend for the away sides.None of the away teams managed to earn all three points in the seven games that were played, with only one match ending in a draw.16 goals were scored across the seven match centres, with about 81% of them (13 goals) being scored by the home sides.The goals were by sixteen different scorers.The away sides scored only three goals this matchweek, with four teams failing to find the net at all.Hearts of Oak were the biggest scorers this weekend, netting four goals at home to WAFA while Dreams FC, Liberty Professionals, Bechem Utd, Elmina Sharks and the Sogakope club would certainly have wanted to be even a quarter as prolific as Hearts, as none of them managed a goal.Of the sides to pick up three points on Sunday, only Karela scored less than two goals with two each for Ashgold, Aduana, Eleven Wonders and Ebusua Dwarfs in addition to Heart’s four-goal haul.The results leave Medeama (16 points) two points clear of Kotoko in Group A having played a game more, with Aduana a further two behind in third.Hearts of Oak (18 points) are a point clear of Karela in Group B with WAFA and Elmina Sharks following with 15 and 14 points respectively.last_img read more
