Whyte approached promoter Eddie Hearn, who had just told Sky Sports there was a rematch clause which he will exercise before the end of the year, and asked: “Can we get a rematch in December?”Hearn replied: “100 per cent, that’s what I’m saying.”Whyte said: “It’s one of those things where it just landed, didn’t it? I was bossing it.“But it is what it is. Rematch, let’s go. It’s all good.”Povetkin told Sky Sports he was feeling confident in the fourth round despite Whyte’s dominance. He said: “I went down twice but it was OK. It was not too much damage.“I was watching his fights and I see that he was missing uppercuts from the left and from the right.“All my training I trained for those shots and it was definitely one of the best punches of my career.”Whyte, the WBC’s number one contender for over two years, knew he could not afford any mistakes behind closed doors at Matchroom HQ in Essex.The prize of meeting the winner of the trilogy fight between current champion Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder was on the line. —Tags: Alexander PovetkinDillian Whytelast_img read more

first_imgJaipur: Rajasthan Royals and England all-rounder Ben Stokes have extended their support towards ending child labour, one of the key projects of the British Asian Trust (BAT) in the capital city of Rajasthan, according to a statement on Wednesday.The Child Labour-Free Jaipur Initiative is a multi-stakeholder partnership set up with the support of the BAT with support from state and district authorities, local businesses and civil society to make Jaipur child labour-free.Taking time out of the busy IPL season, Stokes visited Taabar, a shelter home for rescued child labourers, and watched a street play about child labour at Gyan Ashram School in Mansarovar.The street play is part of a broad community awareness strategy to reduce child labour in Jaipur and work with businesses to increase the number of certified child labour-free products in the market. At the school, Stokes interacted with students and presented them with Rajasthan Royals caps. Ben Stokes personally invited some of them to watch the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore.Stokes quizzed children about their favourite cricketers, their dreams and aspirations; demonstrated his favourite cricket shots, and shared tips to become better cricketer.After the visit Stokes said: “People need to come together to achieve lasting and sustainable positive change for children by reducing child labour, which will eventually help their families and community as a whole.”“These kids are the future. It’s only logical that we try and create opportunities for them to lead a better life,” he remarked. Taabar, the shelter home, is BAT partner that supports children in difficult circumstances by providing community-based rehabilitation for rescued child labourers and other children in need of care and protection.

first_imgThe minister and some Nigerians in CAF committees are known to be openly opposed to Pinnick’s support for Madagascar’s FA President, Ahmad Ahmad who is challenging Isa Hayatou for the coveted position.One of the board members told THISDAY last night that except for one or two members of the NFF board, Pinnick has a solid support base among his men and that any attempt to want to force the board change the position it reached at its December 18 Congress where it asked the president to use his discretion in voting at the CAF election may be resisted.“Nobody can force us to go against the position we reached at the December 18 Congress. We have taken a stand and given the President go ahead to use his discretion in voting for the candidate that will advance the growth of football in the country. Why are they now fretting that Amaju has openly declared his support for Ahmad Ahmad. Is Nigeria not just one vote?” stressed the board member on telephone with THISDAY.He admitted to have also heard speculations of trying to use the board members to oust Pinnick from the position is he refused to toe the line of the minister in voting for Hayatou.“If anybody is thinking of interfering in the activities of the board, they are just wasting their time. This is 2017. The era when certain individuals who have been discredited world-wide in the administration of football will think they can use any of us is over,” the board member further observed.The minister who had earlier opposed Pinnick’s aspiration to contest for a seat on the CAF executive also maintained at the weekend that Nigeria was not in support of Ahmad Ahmad.Nigerian members of CAF included four former NFF presidents – Amos Adamu, Dominic Oneya, Sani Lulu and Aminu Maigari – issued a press statement condemning Pinnick, while pledging their support for incumbent CAF President Issa Hayatou.They also argued that the interest of Nigerian football should be paramount over any personal interest and consideration.“We have consulted widely within the executive of the NFF, the sports ministry and indeed football stakeholders in Nigeria and discovered to our dismay that there is no evidence where Mr Pinnick was mandated to commit this country to supporting Mr Ahmad,” the statement read in part.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Duro IkhazuagbeAhead of tuesday’s emergency Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) board meeting called by the Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung, at his office at the National Stadium in Abuja, there is apprehension in football circles in the country that the forum may be used to create fresh troubles in the administration of the game here.The meeting has just one agenda: Nigeria’s position on the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Presidential Election.last_img read more

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo scored another Champions League hat-trick as Real Madrid thrashed Atletico Madrid in the semi-final first leg to close in on a third final in four years.Real were utterly dominant throughout against their city rivals at the Bernabeu and led after 10 minutes when Ronaldo headed home Casemiro’s cross.It looked as if the hosts might fail to fully capitalise on their superiority – until Ronaldo let the ball bounce and smashed an unstoppable shot from 16 yards past Atletico keeper Jan Oblak, who had made several saves to keep his side in the tie. And the Portugal forward ensured all the headlines would be his with a second consecutive Champions League hat-trick, having scored five goals in the quarter-final against Bayern Munich. It was his easiest goal of the night, as he controlled Lucas Vazquez’s cross in plenty of space before firing home.Atletico only had one shot on target and will need to pull off one of the Champions League’s all-time special performances to stop double-chasing Real from ending their European dreams for the fourth straight season.Ronaldo, the top scorer in the history of the Champions League with 103 goals, loves the big occasion. And occasions do not come much bigger.He has now scored one more goal – 52 – in the knockout stages than he has in the group stages. He has now scored eight goals in his past three games in the competition, and is up to 13 Champions League semi-final goals.At the age of 32, Ronaldo has reinvented himself as a striker, rather than the marauding wide player cutting in and shooting we watched for most of his career.He was not heavily involved for large periods of the game, with only 50 touches of the ball compared with 123 for midfielder Toni Kroos. And he only had five shots – scoring with all of his efforts on target.Ronaldo was in an offside position when Sergio Ramos’ cross came in for the first goal, but the ball never reached him, instead coming out to Casemiro, who crossed for Ronaldo to head home.His second came when Karim Benzema held off Diego Godin, and Filipe Luis’ follow-up clearance bounced up to Ronaldo, who lashed home.And he surely wrapped the tie up when he added a third in the 86th minute.No team has retained the Champions League since its rebranding in 1992, but Real – who were in the swashbuckling form we have seen for most of the season – are in a great position to do so.Manager Zinedine Zidane, who led his side to last season’s trophy with victory over Atletico in the final in his first six months in charge, is chasing a double – and their hopes of a first La Liga title since 2012 are in their hands.Real – who have now scored in 59 consecutive games – had 17 shots against Atletico on Tuesday, with Benzema going close on several occasions, most notably with a bicycle kick that went just wide from Ronaldo’s cross.Raphael Varane almost scored with a header but was denied by a brilliant Oblak stop, while fellow defender Dani Carvajal, who went off injured at half-time, also forced a save from the Atletico keeper.Such is the strength of Zidane’s squad that Wales forward Gareth Bale, out with a calf injury, was not missed at all – with replacement Isco impressing.And now, on the back of their first clean sheet in this year’s tournament, they will surely fancy their chances against Juventus or Monaco in the Cardiff final on Saturday, June 3.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_imgThe decision to fire Carlyle comes after the Ducks lost 6-2 to the Flyers Saturday night, making their record 21-26-9 and last in the Pacific Division. They currently have a seven-game losing streak.Carlyle, who is the winningest coach in Ducks history, was in his second stint with the team. In his second season with the franchise, he led them to a Stanley Cup win in 2007. Penguins’ Phil Kessel after loss to Lightning: ‘I need to be better’ During the 2011-12 season, Carlyle was fired after a slow start to the year. He was then hired by the Maple Leafs, but was fired in 2015.The Ducks hired him again in 2016 and led the team to a conference title in 2017. “We thank Randy for everything he has done for the organization,” said Murray. “Leading the team to a Stanley Cup and three conference final appearances, he has accomplished so much in Anaheim. Difficult decisions need to be made when times are tough, and our play has clearly been unacceptable. We have a tradition of success in Anaheim and we need to get back to that.”It’s surprising the Ducks have elected Murray, since he doesn’t have any coaching experience at the professional level.
