first_imgWright has two wins over Mosley and a win over Felix Trinidad Jr. He has not lost since 1999. Wright and Hopkins will meet at a catch-weight of 170 pounds, two pounds over the super middleweight limit. Hopkins, of Philadelphia, is 47-4-1 with 32 knockouts. Wright is 51-3-1 with 25 knockouts. Israel Vazquez of Mexico City will defend his World Boxing Council super bantamweight belt on March 3 against countryman Rafael Marquez at Home Depot Center in Carson. Marquez, a bantamweight world champion the past several years, will be moving up in weight. But he is a consensus top 10 pound-for-pound fighter and one of the meanest men in the sport. He also has one of the game’s best trainers in Nacho Beristain. Even though Vazquez is the champion at this weight, he undoubtedly will be in the toughest fight of his esteemed career. And he might be in it without his trainer, Freddie Roach, who is scheduled to leave on March 1 with the rest of Team De La Hoya to Puerto Rico. Roach will train De La Hoya for his May 5 mega-fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in Las Vegas. Prior to a news conference Wednesday in Los Angeles promoting his fight, Vazquez was asked about the scenario. “He (Roach) formally told us that he is going to be there, that he is going to be in my corner,” said Vazquez, who is co-promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and Sycuan Ringside Promotions. Schaefer also was on hand at the news conference and sang a different tune. He said the plan right now is for all of Team De La Hoya to leave for camp in Puerto Rico the day after a Feb. 28 news conference in Los Angeles. “I have to talk to Oscar and see what his plans are,” Schaefer said. “Maybe he \ stays for the fight. I can’t really answer you. It’s an Oscar issue. If Oscar wants to start camp on the first \, with the whole team flying back together, then, you know …” That means Roach won’t be in Vazquez’s corner unless De La Hoya says he can. Told about this, Vazquez expressed cautious optimism. “I hope Oscar understands that this is a big fight for us,” Vazquez said. “I belong to his company. I also have to prepare. I hope he will understand and let Freddie stay with me that night.” Frank Espinoza of West Covina is Vazquez’s long-time manager. He expressed concern Tuesday that Vazquez might be without Roach for the most important fight of his career. “Here you have a Golden Boy fighter in Israel Vazquez,” Espinoza said. “Why wouldn’t they let him \ stay?” Should Roach not make the fight, he most likely will be replaced by Justin Fortune, Roach’s assistant at Wild Card Gym in Hollywood. “I guess Israel feels OK with him,” Espinoza said. Vazquez, 29, is 41-3 with 30 knockouts. Marquez, 31, is 36-3 with 32 knockouts. (562) 499-1338 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Hopkins, 42, held at least one piece of the middleweight championship for 10 years before he lost all four belts via split decision to Jermain Taylor in July 2005. It was somewhat controversial in that most ringside observers had Hopkins winning. Taylor again emerged victorious via narrow unanimous decision in a rematch five months later. But six months after that in June, Hopkins moved up to light heavyweight and beat people’s champion Antonio Tarver with a lopsided decision. Hopkins then announced his retirement, but it didn’t last long. “It’s going to be an interesting showdown,” Schaefer said. “It’s Bernard fighting another big fight. For him, it’s fighting one of the best fighters again, one who hasn’t lost in a long time. “For Winky, a win over Hopkins, think what what would do. Then he would be the only fighter who fought and won against the three guys Oscar lost to. So it is a very interesting fight. A very big fight.” Bernard Hopkins, one of the great middleweights of all time, recently announced he wanted to come out of retirement. Speculation immediately began as to whom he would fight. The speculation is over. Richard Schaefer, CEO of Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions, told this newspaper Wednesday that Hopkins and Winky Wright have signed contracts to fight each other July 21 at a site to be determined. center_img “It’s signed, sealed and delivered,” Schaefer said. “We signed it last weekend (Saturday) in Las Vegas. Different sites are interested. Las Vegas is interested.” Wright, of St. Petersburg, Fla., trains in Las Vegas. Hopkins, a partner in Golden Boy Promotions, was there playing host to the Golden Boy-promoted welterweight title fight between “Sugar” Shane Mosley and Luis Collazo. last_img read more

Photo: Rachel McLaughlin, DonegalWoman.ieThis is Evelyn’s My Donegal:(1) Where is your favourite place in Donegal and why?Its hard to choose just one place but Glenveagh is very beautiful and peaceful and after enjoying the beauty of nature I can indulge in my passion for delicious cake in the tearooms there!(2 ) How do you like to spend Christmas in the county?With family, reading and eating(!) and remembering what life is really about and the value of having people you love around you and remembering those who are no longer with us but who have left a legacy of tradition for us all. (3) Who is the one person in Donegal that you look up to and why?Donegal Mammy, she is an institution in herself, she pulls it all together and supports and advises her family – whether they need it or not!(4) What do you think is Donegal’s best tourist attraction?Sliabh Liag is fabulous yet doesn’t get the attention it deserves , also all the beautiful beaches on our part of the Wild Atlantic Way are a major attraction for people to visit our county.(5) Do you prefer Donegal summers or Donegal winters?It has to be the winter, the colours especially in the Autumn, and the ability to escape into our own beautiful part of the world is very special.(6) What would you do on your ideal day out in Donegal?Walk the beaches, meet interesting people and listen to their stories and eat cake! (7) What is your favourite Donegal-made product?As PRO of Donegal Women in Business Network I really couldn’t choose! Donegal is rich in creative people and their work. Some going back for years and others creating new work day by day. Also creativity is not always about a product its the people who inspire and motivate and come up with innovative and exciting ideas in the county.(8) Who is Donegal’s greatest ambassador around the world and why?With many of our young people living all over the world now, whether it is by their own choice to travel and explore or through necessity.. I feel they are our greatest ambassadors. They share our culture and warmth of storytelling and promote how Donegal and Ireland is so unique.(9) Who is Donegal’s most successful businessperson in your opinion?Deirdre McGlone our president in Donegal Women in Business Network has used every opportunity to promote business and Donegal as a whole. She is a successful networker and knows the value of people working as a team to succeed in business.(10) Who is your favourite Donegal sportsperson of all time?Not much of a sports fan but as Finn Harps are the local soccer team in the county I have to admire how they work as a community to help grow what they do. Especially with their schools programme. Jim Mc Guinness inspired the county not only in sport but in how he delivered his message in following your dream to make it happen! (11) What is your favourite Donegal restaurant?With an all Ireland award, it has to be Blas in Donegal town. Whether it’s for morning coffee, lunch or dinner the quality and standard made it a deserving winner, so it’s usually my choice. But there are numerous coffee shops and tearooms throughout the county that I also love.(12) If you could change one thing about Donegal what would it be?Well the obvious would be transport and some form of train in the county, to think we had railway in the 50s and we let it go is very sad. My mum used to travel from Laghey to Belfast to get the boat to Liverpool , travelling through Barnes Gap in the mid forties.(13) What is your favourite Donegal saying or expression?It’s an old one….my dad used to say “Hold your wheest”!!! Not sure there is such word but it meant , be quiet don’t speak ill of others… a great lesson to remember…(14) What is the biggest challenge facing the people of Donegal today?Keeping community alive while technology brings such great changes in terms of employment and entrepreneurship. Helping and supporting the elderly in particular through these massive changes that impact their lives.(15) What is your favourite Donegal food?Football special…. in a cheesecake!(16) Is there anything that really annoys you about Donegal or its people?Like other parts of Ireland…a modern day problem… we never seem to have any “time” any more! We are always rushing and filling our life with being busy… my New Years Resolution is to make more time and make more memories!(17) Do you have a favourite local band?Without Willow…. a Letterkenny band that I heard recently at an enterprise event. I bought their cd and I play it constantly in the car…love it!(18) If you had a million euro to improve something in Donegal what would it be?Back to number 14… If I had a million to spare, I would help build and support communities through this new time of great digital growth. There are many people in our county who never learned what is now commonplace for a younger generation and some are lost. I would also build on initiatives to support women in the home and carers, who are not on the live register and have no incentives or initiatives to gain free further education or set up in business like those who are on the live register.(19) Daniel O’Donnell or Packie Bonner?Daniel is a great ambassador for the county and my friend Catherine in Galway is his biggest fan so she would never forgive me if I didn’t say Daniel!(20) Is there anything about Donegal that you are very proud of?I am very proud of Donegal, I love our accent and the people. I like the fact that we are welcoming and warm and that we have become world-renowned for all these great qualities.My Donegal… with business consultant Evelyn McGlynn was last modified: January 3rd, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:evelyn mcglynnMY DONEGALlast_img read more

first_imgJudge Paul KellyA JUDGE today issued a stark warning to rally fans who come to County Donegal to watch events and perform dangerous manoeuvres.Judge Paul Kelly told a rally fan at Letterkenny District Court today that the doughnuts he performed at a petrol station forecourt would “cost you an awful lot of money.” Garda Derek Connaughton told the court how he and a colleague were patrolling in an unmarked car at 10pm on the evening of June 21 past, the first day of this year’s Donegal International Rally.They were near a garage forecourt at Bonagee, Letterkenny, when they observed a Ford Sierra do two 360-degree doughnuts.Friends of the driver, Darren McCloskey, were standing back and watching, said the garda.“Some of his colleagues were egging him on,” said Garda Connaughton.When McCloskey was questioned he was “remorseful for his actions” said the garda.Solicitor Kieran Dillon, defending, said his client had “a rush of blood to the head.”McCloskey he said, was a hard-working 22-year-old man with no previous convictions.The driver, from Kildoag Road, Kildoag, County Derry, was also a carer for his 87-year-old aunt and held a full-time job at a saw mills.“I have little tolerance for that type of driving,” Judge Kelly told McCloskey.“I see it all too frequently where people come to Letterkenny to watch the Donegal rally and these people try to do the sort of things they see the experts do.”He said it was “thankful” that no danger was posed to anyone at the time.Judge Kelly ordered McCloskey to make a €300 donation to the Dawnbreakers programme, which provides driver behaviour courses for young motorists.“If you are back here again, you won’t get that sort of leniency,” said Judge Kelly,‘RALLY FANS NEED TO REALISE THEY CAN’T COPY WHAT THEY SEE AT EVENT’ – JUDGE TELLS DOUGHNUT DRIVER was last modified: July 1st, 2013 by BrendaShare 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)last_img read more
