Pushing 40, Pacquiao still pours it all in training

first_imgMOST READ Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? The only boxer to own titles in eight weight divisions is turning 40 on Monday.“Before, I train every day; but now as I grow old I need balance. As you grow old, you don’t recover overnight and you have to give yourself time to recover before pushing hard again,” he added.It’s the same method his trainer Buboy Fernandez employed during his July knockout triumph over Lucas Matthysse.“Before we had 120 rounds, sometimes 140 rounds [of sparring] but it’s not necessary [for me],” said Pacquiao who just  had 14 rounds with Australian youngster George Kambosos Jr. last week.But when he does hit the gym, he’s all out.ADVERTISEMENT Fernandez, his best friend since childhood, could hardly keep up with Pacquiao during mitts session.“It all about discipline, time management,” said Pacquiao. “It’s going to be me having problems on top of the ring if I don’t push myself to the limit.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college View comments Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil After winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk ‘Mia’: Rom-com with a cause a career-boosting showcase for Coleen Garcia No.13 lucky for Orlando Bloom Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

S/Court Postpones Chronicle Newspaper Closure Case

first_imgThe Supreme Court was on Wednesday, September 24, compelled to postpone further hearings into a request to reopen the National Chronicle Newspaper filed by the Press Union of Liberia against the government.The High Court’s action came after state lawyers contended they have not received a copy of the amended document filed by the PUL’s lawyers before the court.The publisher of the paper, Philipbert Brown was recently arrested by the Liberia National Police (LNP) for publishing a story in which he said, “An interim government was being established in the United States of America to replace the President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf-led government.”Besides, government’s lawyers noted that the amended documents were so bulky and they needed more time to review it before going ahead with the case. They also asked the Court to cancel the scheduled September 24 hearing on the PUL’s amended motion.However, the Justice in Chamber, Associate Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh approved the request on Wednesday afternoon and subsequently postponed the case to Friday, September 26.“Issues that were raised during said hearings and the processes it could have entailed for all involved to file their respective responsive pleadings such as comments and oppositions, or even motions, became a consideration,” the Associate Justice said before he would postpone the matter.Earlier, the PUL’s lawyers decided to amend some wordings in their complaint to emphasize the constitutional basis for which the paper was closed.Apart from replacing some of the words, the paper’s lawyers also wanted the High Court to interpret the constitutional violation committed by the paper.“We did withdraw our request and filed another, amended on the basis of improving on what we had previously filed before the court,” Cllr. Syrenius Cephus added when he spoke with journalists after the hearings were suspended.“This issue is very much dedicated and hopefully we might proceed before the full bench of the Supreme Court,” he noted, “because there are many constitutional issues that would require the intervention of the Full Bench.”The PUL, in the petition, condemned the closure of the paper as a violation of press freedom and free speech as guaranteed under Article 15 (c) of the 1986 Constitution of the Republic of Liberia. The petition lamented that “the constitutional guarantee of the unlimited rights of the public to be informed” is being “threatened, hijacked and trampled upon by the arbitrary and illegal closure order of the offices of the national Chronicle Newspaper…”  The PUL emphasized the urgency of the petition “…to inhibit, restrain and prevent the unorthodox application of scare tactics and martial law practices adopted by the government…to prevent it from demonstrating a callous and blatant disregard for press freedom, individual rights as enshrined in the 1986 constitution of Liberia.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Espanyol star signs new contract to quash Everton speculation

first_img1 Everton target Sergio Garcia has ended hopes of a Merseyside switch by signing a new contract at Espanyol.Everton boss Roberto Martinez is a big fan of Garcia and had hoped to land his 30-year-old compatriot for £3m before the close of the window.But Espanyol moved to stave off the interest from Martinez by offering the striker, who is a product of Barcelona’s famed youth system, a bumper new deal, which runs until 2017.Garcia told the club’s website: “I am happy to renew.“The club know that at all times I wanted to renew, an effort was made and for that I’m grateful.“I will give everything for this shirt and for this club.” Sergio Garcia last_img read more

Everton and Southampton to battle it out for Juventus star

first_img Kwadwo Asamoah in action for Juventus 1 Everton and Southampton are set to battle it out for the signature of Juventus star Kwadwo Asamoah in the January transfer window.The Premier League pair are tracking the Ghana international who has failed to hold down a regular first-team berth in Massimiliano Allegri’s side since joining in July 2012.According to Tuttosport, the 25-year-old versatile midfielder is unhappy in Turin and could favour a move to the Premier League.Representatives from both the Toffees and the Saints have scouted the former Udinese man but Asamoah’s £15m valuation could prove a stumbling block over any future deal.Asamoah’s existing contract at the Juventus Stadium runs until June 2018 and sources close to Juve suggest he may be allowed to go out on loan before making a permanent switch to another club.last_img read more

Four-star Mbappe helps PSG break 82-year-old record

first_img“Fantastic, incredible. It was super hard in the first half, it was a crazy match,” PSG coach Tuchel told Canal+.A Neymar penalty gave PSG a ninth-minute advantage, but Presnel Kimpembe was sent off just after the half-hour mark to give Lyon hope.Bruno Genesio’s side threw away their man advantage, though, as Lucas Tousart was dismissed, and after missing a string of chances, the sensational Mbappe capped an virtuoso display by scoring four times in 13 minutes to seal history for PSG.The capital-city giants, bidding for a sixth title in seven seasons, are already eight points clear of second-placed Lille at the top of the table, with Lyon five points further back in sixth.Lyon endured the worst possible start to the match, as star man Nabil Fekir was forced off injured in the seventh minute, and the hosts were awarded a spot-kick just seconds later.Mbappe raced to reach a loose ball, and visiting goalkeeper Anthony Lopes needlessly charged off his line to bring down the teenager.Neymar stepped up and sent Lopes the wrong way with a stuttering run-up to score his 11th goal of the season.Lyon responded well, though, with veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon having to shovel a Memphis Depay free-kick over the bar, before Di Maria was fortunate not to concede a penalty for handball.The reigning champions thought they had got lucky again when Kimpembe was only shown a yellow card for a nasty tackle on Tanguy Ndombele, but with the young midfielder lying stricken on the ground, a video review resulted in the centre-back’s punishment being upgraded to red.But Lyon shot themselves in the foot on the stroke of half-time as Tousart tripped Mbappe inside the PSG half and was given a second yellow card.OL should have equalised early in the second period, but Maxwel Cornet contrived to miskick with the goal at his mercy.Cornet, who came on for Fekir, almost scored in bizarre circumstances shortly after, as a Silva clearance ricocheted off his back and bounced back off the base of the post.– Eight-minute hat-trick –Mbappe almost put PSG out of sight three times in the space of five minutes — powering clear after Cornet’s unwitting effort and drilling against the far post, seeing Lopes dive at his feet as he ran through one-on-one, and shooting too close to the Lyon ‘keeper.But the World Cup-winner’s persistence finally paid off in the 61st minute as he latched onto the ball inside the area after Neymar had burst forward, turned his man and smashed the ball in off both posts.Confidence was coursing through PSG, and the floodgates opened as centre-back Marquinhos drove into the box and squared for Mbappe to stab in his eighth goal of the campaign.Neymar soon sent the 19-year-old bearing down on goal yet again, and Mbappe lofted the ball into the net to complete an incredible eight-minute hat-trick.He was not done there, though, as he pounced to slam home his fourth with 16 minutes left after Neymar had seen a low shot blocked.– Monaco crisis intensifies –Radamel Falcao and Monaco have made a disastrous start in Ligue 1 having finished second last season © AFP / VALERY HACHEEarlier on Sunday, 10-man Monaco slumped to a fifth defeat in nine Ligue 1 matches as former PSG outcast Hatem Ben Arfa earned Rennes a 2-1 victory with his first league goal since April 2016.Leonardo Jardim’s Monaco, runners-up to PSG last season, remain winless since the opening weekend and above the automatic relegation spots only on goal difference.Elsewhere, ex-Japan coach Vahid Halilhodzic saw his Nantes side beaten 3-0 at Bordeaux on his return to French football, while Kostas Mitroglou and Florian Thauvin scored as Marseille climbed to third following a 2-0 victory over Caen.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mbappe was in unstoppable form as he put four goals past a stunned Lyon © AFP / Anne-Christine POUJOULATPARIS, France, Oct 8 – Kylian Mbappe tore Lyon to shreds on Sunday with four goals as a 5-0 thrashing at the Parc des Princes saw Paris Saint-Germain set a new French top-flight record of nine straight wins to start a season.Thomas Tuchel’s Ligue 1 leaders broke the 82-year-old record of eight consecutive wins set by Olympique Lillois in 1936, having equalled the mark with their 3-0 victory at Nice last weekend.last_img read more
