Hearn Warns Haye And Bellew To Avoid Throwing Punches In Upcoming Meetings

Featured Image

Boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn has warned both David Haye and Tony Bellew to avoid throwing punches at upcoming pre-fight meetings.

Bellew accused Haye of throwing a punch at him during a press conference they had last November and Eddie Hearn is hoping to avoid any future drama before the March 4 fight.

“We’ve just got to keep them sensible. When they come together again, I worry,” Hearn told Sky Sports News HQ.

“I don’t want this fight falling through because both fighters couldn’t keep their hands to themselves in the build-up.

“Everyone has got to sensible to make sure we all make it in one piece to The O2 Arena.”

Bellew will be fighting for a first time as a heavyweight, moving up from cruiserweight to face Haye and Hearn believes they have the same physique.

“Tony looks fantastic, surprised by his weight,” Hearn said. “He thought he’d come in lighter – he hasn’t tried to bulk himself up, or beef himself up.

“I don’t think there will be that much difference in the weight come the weigh-in or fight night.

“He’s talked about the differences in camp – he’s been locked away in a three-star hotel in Sheffield, away from his family. Haye has been in Miami on private jets and private yachts, very nice!

“But don’t be fooled by that. We know he’s been training hard behind the scenes.”

Sunderland Deny Lonadon Relocation Rumors

Sunderland have reportedly denied claims that the club’s training base could be relocated to London.

According to a newspaper report over the weekend, the Premier League’s most northern side have been considering a surprise plan to move their weekday training operations 200 miles south.

The move would allegedly make the club a more attractive proposition to new players, who could feasibly live in the capital after joining the Black Cats.

According to The Echo, Sunderland insiders have today “laughed off the claim and say they’re unaware of any talk of moving their base” from the North

Report: Lionel Messi Wants Three Players Gone Before Signing New Barcelona Contract

Featured Image

Lionel Messi wants three players to leave Barcelona before he signs a new contract, the Daily Express reports. 

The names in question are Jeremy Mathieu, Ander Gomes and Lucas Digne who Messi feels have not lived up to expectations this season, and would also reportedly like Luis Enrique to be replace at the end of the current campaign. 

Digne signed from PSG in the summer but has toiled when picked over Jordi Alba.

Messi is close friends with Alba and reckons manager Luis Enrique is wrong to trust him so often.

Andre Gomes is another Enrique signing that Barcelona’s No 10 wants gone.

The midfielder arrived with big expectations but, despite having Enrique’s backing, does not have the support of his team-mates.

Sevilla Defender Adil Rami Rejects Reports Of Switch To Marseille

Featured Image

Sevilla defender Adil Rami has dismissed reports linking him with a move back to France with Marseille even if the ‘project’ at the Ligue 1 club does intrigue him. 

“Sometimes I think about Marseille because they are starting to rise more and more,” he told beIN Sport. “It all depends on the project.

“Today, I will be honest, it will be complicated because I am very happy in Seville. We have managed to make a reputation in Europe, so leaving a club like Sevilla to go to OM, even if I’m very confident in their project, it’s hard. And at thirty-one, it is better to be careful.”

Jorge Sampaoli’s Sevilla are third in LaLiga, just three points behind leaders Real Madrid but have played two games more.

Manchester United Prepared To Hijack Juventus Bid For Sao Paolo Defender Lyanco

Featured Image

Manchester United are tracking £10m-rated Sao Paolo defender Lyanco, who has also attracted the interest of Juventus and Atletico Madrid, the Daily Mirror reports. 

It is also believed that Juve have already tabled a €5m (around £4.3m) bid for the 20-year-old’s signature.

United are expected to have a busy summer transfer window once again after failing to compete for the Premier League title.

Jose Mourinho has already spent £150m at Old Trafford since taking over from Louis van Gaal.

Lyanco isn’t the only defender United have been linked with as Benfica ace Victor Lindelof was rumoured to be joining the Red Devils in January.

No move ended up materialising but it remains to be seen if Mourinho renews his interest at the end of the season.

Barcelona Considering Shock Bid For Southampton’s Right-back Cedric Soares

Featured Image

Barcelona are eyeing a shock move for Southampton right-back Cedric Soares in the summer transfer window, The Telegraph reports.

The Catalan side have struggled to find a suitable replacement since Dani Alves departed, with the Euro 2016 winner said to fit in with the Barcelona style. 

Sergi Roberto is yet to stake his claim as a bona-fide successor to Alves, and the Daily Telegraph reports that Cedric has been included on Barca’s shortlist of potential replacements.

The 25-year-old joined Southampton for less than £5m in 2015 and last summer signed a new contract that keeps him at the club until 2020 having helped Portugal to Euro 2016 glory.

 The Saints are unlikely to consider bids of less than £15m, with uncertainty already surrounding the futures of in-demand defensive duo Virgil van Dijk and Ryan Bertrand

Dani Alves Labels Barcelona Directors As “Ungrateful”

Featured Image

Dani Alves has criticised the directors at Barcelona for being “very false and ungrateful” but says he has respect for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Dani Alves left the Nou Camp last summer on a free transfer after spending eight years at the club, winning six La Liga titles and three Champions League trophies. However, in an interview with Spanish newspaper ABC, the Brazil international has slammed the Barcelona board of directors who handled his move to the Serie A side.

“During my last three seasons I always heard that Alves was leaving, but the directors never said anything to my face. They were very false and ungrateful,” Dani Alves said. “They did not respect me. They only offered me a renewal when they were given a transfer ban by FIFA. That was when I came into play and signed a deal with a termination clause. The people who run Barcelona today have no idea how to treat their players.”

During his time in Catalonia, Alves was reported to have been involved in a “fight” with Ronaldo after comments made by the defender, leading the Real Madrid star to snub him at a Ballon d’Or ceremony in 2015.

“If only people knew how much I respect Cristiano Ronaldo. I will repeat it so it’s clear: I respect Cristiano Ronaldo a lot. Everybody tells me that he is a great professional,” he said when quizzed about their disagreement.

“As for CR7, it’s different. He was my rival and I had to compete with him. When I said that he is too self-centred, that when you win you are going to be the star but when you lose they will come for you, I said it in a very respectful way. I think the same about Messi or Neymar.

“But my thoughts were not hurtful. What happened is the press sold it in another way, saying that I had spoken badly about him. And Ronaldo believed it.

“That’s why he did not greet me at the Ballon d’Or gala in 2015. I believe that over the course of time he reconsidered and he realised that my words were manipulated. In the first Clasico after that Balon d’Or gala, he came and greeted me. End of story.”

Anthony Davis Named MVP, As He Breaks Wilt’s All-Star Scoring Record

Featured Image

The NBA All-Star game was played at New Orleans and Pelicans star, Anthony Davis made it publicly known he would like to win the MVP award.

He also didn’t hide the master plan on how he intended to achieve that and his teammates played a role in helping him achieve the feat in front of his home fans.

“Coach [Alvin] Gentry already told me every time I catch it to put it up,” said Davis upon being selected to his fourth straight spot on the Western Conference team.

The Western Conference All-Star team had no problem passing the ball to the Pelicans star on his home court and he didn’t waste any chance he got.

The 23-year-old took an All-Star record 39 shots and scored 52 points to smash Wilt Chamberlain’s previous record of 42. The West overcame the East 192-182.

“I stressed that, I think more than enough, to the guys in the locker room before the game that I wanted to get the MVP for this crowd, for the city, and I ended up doing it,” Davis said. “Them guys did a great job of just finding me, giving me the basketball. They wanted me to score 50. Every time, Kawhi [Leonard] was like, ‘Six more points.’ Or James [Harden] was like, ‘I’m going to pass you the ball.’”

“It was a lot of fun,” Davis said. “My teammates did a great job of looking for me.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the East with 30 points.

“I told the coach I’m going to play hard no matter what,” said Antetokounmpo, the youngest player in the game. “That’s the only thing I know how to do.”

ICYMI: The Rivalry Between I And Curry Has Not Attained Classic Status, Says James

Featured Image

The two biggest names in the NBA at the moment are LeBron James and Steph Curry, with both of their teams meeting in the finals for the last two seasons.

James is a four-time MVP and with Curry becoming the first player to win the MVP award unanimously last year, he has two.

And even though they’ve had classic finals and there are similarities between the pair, the cavaliers star doesn’t see the Warriors player as a rival.

“I don’t have a rivalry with Steph Curry,” James said after Saturday’s All-Star practice session. “There’s no way you can say, ‘Let’s talk about rivalries,’ and you say, ‘Bird and Magic. Carolina, Duke. Ohio State, Michigan,’ and then say ‘LeBron and Steph.’

“It’s disrespectful to those other three that I just named that you would even try to put us in the class with that. We haven’t had enough battles, and who’s to say we will have future battles. We’ll see, but to put us in a category with [them], it’s impossible. You can’t do it.”

James has gone so far as to say that there was not even a team rivalry in today’s game, an opinion Warriors forward Draymond Green disagreed with.

“I think this is a rivalry,” Green said last month. “It’s definitely fun. A team that you beat, beat you, it’s definitely fun. If you look at the last two years and this year, we’ve been the top two teams in the league each year, and so I look at it as a rivalry, and it’s definitely a fun game to play in. But I don’t really care if anyone else sees the game the way I see it. I see how I see it, and they can see it how they see it.”

DeMarcus Cousins Traded To Pelicans For Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans And More

Featured Image

The New Orleans Pelicans have not been in the playoffs for a while and they’ve made a move on change that with the addition of DeMarcus Cousins.

The deal is yet to be finalised, but the Pelicans are rumoured to send Tyreke Evans, Buddy Hield , Langston Galloway and its 2017 first-round and second-round pick for Cousins and Omari Casspi.

Entering 2016-17, Cousins had three straight seasons averaging more than 22 points and 11 rebounds per night, and he is a double-double threat every time he steps on the floor.

He is definitely a huge steal for the Pelicans as he is also a good player when it comes to defense.

The Pelicans are definitely sure of re-signing him, seeing as he will become a free agent come 2018.

Big Brother Naija: Gifty Takes A Bow

Featured Image

After 28 days, Gifty has emerged the fourth evictee from the Big Brother Naija competition putting an end to her dream of clinching the ultimate prize of 25 million naira and an SUV.

Gifty who was up for possible eviction with fellow housemates, Thin Tall Tony (TTT) and Marvis, was asked to exit the Big Brother Naija house at the live eviction show on Sunday, 19 February. Her exit was greeted with silence as she hurriedly said goodbye to the other housemates and left.

Following the announcement of her eviction, BBNaija show host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, revealed that Gifty secured only 25.65% of the votes while Marvis and TTT had 42.27% and 32.08% respectively.

While speaking with Ebuka, a rather calm Gifty guessed that Bisola, TBoss and TTT may have nominated her but was surprised when Ebuka said Efe and Kemen actually nominated her. About her romance in the house, she said, “the kissing part was a game”. BBNaija fans watched her on and off romance with former housemate, Soma and following his eviction, she moved on quickly and found solace in the arms of Bally whom she now said she considered “as a brother”.

Meanwhile, at the start of the show, Ebuka revealed yet another twist from Big Brother. This time three housemates would be selected randomly to come on stage with him to take part in a ‘high stakes’ game. The three nominated housemates, the fake housemates (Jon and Ese) and Bally (because he has the green advantage card) did not qualify to take part.  The random selection saw Bisola, Bassey and TBoss   up for the quiz.

The game, according to Ebuka, had some amazing rewards on offer as well as another big advantage. If the housemates answered their questions correctly, they get to pick from the ‘win bin’ that had rewards such as immunity from nominations for the week ahead as well as a traditional Nigerian feast of the winner’s choice. In addition, the lucky housemate could win a PayPorte shopping voucher worth 200 000 Naira and a 300 000 Naira in cash, a bowl of ice cream, 28 BBNaira to shop for luxury items during the coming week or a slab of chocolate.

However, if the housemates answered their questions incorrectly they would pick from the ‘lose bin’ that had a penalty of automatic nomination for the week ahead. They could also have to do a whole host of tasks in the house such as sweeping duties for the week, become the joker for the whole of the next day. As if that was not enough, Ebuka informed them that they would have to wash dishes for a full day and they could not receive any messages from home.

At the end of the game, Bisola got her answer correctly and won immunity from nomination next week. Bassey won a traditional Nigerian dish of his choice but unfortunately, TBoss didn’t get her question right and so she had to pick from the lose bin. She learned that she had to wash the dishes in the house for the next week!

As always, the eviction show gets spiced up with an artiste performance. This week, hip-hop artiste, Ice Prince took to the stage and performed two tracks off his “Jos To The World” album. He also performed alongside Tanzanian artiste, Vanessa Mdee.

The housemates would soon move quickly from the eviction hammer as they prepare for another round of nominations on Monday, 20 February.

All the action can also be followed on Big Brother Naija social media fan pages with the hashtag #BBNaija on Twitter @BBNaija, Instagram @BigBrotherNaija2017 and Facebook www.facebook.com/bigbrothernaija

Big Brother Naija reality show is aired 24/7 in 45 countries from Nigeria through East, West and Southern Africa on DStv channel 198 and GOtv channel 29.

‘Sane Can Be A Star For City And Germany’

Featured Image

If Leroy Sane can maintain his Premier League form, he can become a star for both Manchester City and Germany, says Michael Tarnat.

The 21-year-old initially struggled to make an impact with City after joining from Schalke, due to his performance for Germany at the Euro 2016.

However after scoring his first goal for City against Arsenal in December, he seems to have found his form, as he scored in his next two appearances against Tottenham and Crystal Palace.

And Michael Tarnat who played for Bayern Munich and Manchester City has backed Sane to become a star for both club and country.

“Everybody looked at Leroy Sane last season in the Bundesliga,” Tarnat told Omnisport. “He made great games for Schalke and then took the step to go to Manchester City, which is a great club where top players are playing.

“He certainly struggled at the beginning to adapt to the league and the players. That was something that he probably underestimated in the beginning.

“But in the last games he has acclimatised and will be an important part of Man City and also for Pep Guardiola.

“He is incredibly fast, has a good technique and a good finish. I believe these are all his strengths.

“If you are fast, have a good shot and score goals this is a good argument to become a top player, and I think that he will be maturing in a foreign country over the next few years.

“Foreign culture will make him a bit more mature from the point of view of personality. I think he will also be an important part of the German national team in the next years.”

It is understood that the killings took place in Bakin Kogi, Jema’a Local Government Area, Ashim and other villages in Kaura Local Government Area, where dozens of homes were also razed.

This is just as the herdsmen engaged soldiers and mobile policeman who had arrived the scene to repress the attack in fierce gun battles.

A senior military officer at the Defence Headquarters, Abuja, revealed that if not for the firm resistance put up by soldiers and mobile policemen, the herdsmen would have burnt down all the villages attacked and killed more villagers in the area.

Leadership Newspaper also quoted the lawmaker, representing Kaura constituency at the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Dr. Yakubu Bityong as saying that the attackers had killed and destroyed many homes before the arrival of the security operatives.

Begovic: Terry Shouldn’t Quit, He Can Keep Playing

Featured Image

Chelsea’s second goalkeeper, Asmir Begovic has backed Chelsea captain John Terry to keep playing beyond this season.

Terry has slipped down the pecking order in the Premier League, with David Luiz, Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta continuing to impress in Conte’s three-man defence.

The 36-year-old defender has however been used in the FA cup and will be out of contract in June and is not expected to renew his contract.

However, Begovic believes the former England international should extend his 22-year stay at Stamford Bridge, but admits leaving when the ovation is the loudest is quite tempting.

“I can see him continuing to play and while he is playing like this, I don’t see why he should quit,” the Bosnian told reporters.

“He trains every day, he’s as fit as a fiddle and you don’t get the sense that he is coming to an end.

“What he has in his mind and what he is planning to do is something only he can answer.”

Referring to Chelsea’s bid to win a double of the Premier League and FA Cup in Conte’s first season in charge, Begovic added: “But if he collects two trophies, maybe that’s a great way to go out. Who knows?”

Chelsea, who were drawn against the Manchester United team led by their former manager Jose Mourinho in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, are at home to Swansea City in the league this weekend.

Begovic: Terry Shouldn’t Quit, He Can Keep Playing

Featured Image

Chelsea’s second goalkeeper, Asmir Begovic has backed Chelsea captain John Terry to keep playing beyond this season.

Terry has slipped down the pecking order in the Premier League, with David Luiz, Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta continuing to impress in Conte’s three-man defence.

The 36-year-old defender has however been used in the FA cup and will be out of contract in June and is not expected to renew his contract.

However, Begovic believes the former England international should extend his 22-year stay at Stamford Bridge, but admits leaving when the ovation is the loudest is quite tempting.

“I can see him continuing to play and while he is playing like this, I don’t see why he should quit,” the Bosnian told reporters.

“He trains every day, he’s as fit as a fiddle and you don’t get the sense that he is coming to an end.

“What he has in his mind and what he is planning to do is something only he can answer.”

Referring to Chelsea’s bid to win a double of the Premier League and FA Cup in Conte’s first season in charge, Begovic added: “But if he collects two trophies, maybe that’s a great way to go out. Who knows?”

Josep Maria Bartomeu was unhappy with the loss to PSG, but insists Luis Enrique is still the manager the club needs.

The pressure on Enrique has increased since the 4-0 loss to PSG and the players were jeered by the fans in the 2-1 loss to Leganes.

Speaking before that victory, Bartomeu offered some support to Luis Enrique, whose team are second in the league.

“We agreed with him a while ago that we would talk in April. Now it is time to focus on the games that are coming up,” he told media.

“Luis Enrique is the coach that we want, he is doing a fantastic job, and with the exception of Paris, we are happy with results.”
