Wilder retains heavyweight crown after Fury thriller ends in draw

first_imgWilder landed just 71 of 430 punches thrown, or 17 percent.Fury by contrast cleverly picked his moments, finding Wilder with greater accuracy and causing a nasty swelling over the American’s left eye.Wilder, the more aggressive of the two fighters early on, quickly moved into an early lead.But Fury gradually grew in confidence, regularly taunting Wilder by throwing his arms up in the air or behind his back.Wilder responded with increasingly desperate flurries of big punches, very few of which found their mark.As several former heavyweights had predicted beforehand, the longer the fight went on, the more Fury looked in control.– Fury goes down –However in the ninth round, Wilder finally made his mark, dropping Fury with a short hook that had the fans on their feet.Fury recovered well however and regained his composure to resume where he had left off. With a large contingent of British fans in the audience of 17,698 roaring him on, a victory suddenly seemed within reach.Wilder however suddenly found a devastating combination just when he needed it in the 12th round.A right hand sent Fury rocking backwards towards the deck and a brutal left hand on the way down appeared to be the coup de grace for the challenger.Incredibly however, Fury managed to pick himself up and clear his head to survive the remainder of the round and escape with a draw. Tyson Fury punches Deontay Wilde in the fifth round, fighting to a draw during the WBC Heavyweight Champioinship at Staples Center on December 1, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. AFP PHOTOLos Angeles, United States | AFP | Deontay Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight crown here Saturday after battling to a split decision draw against Britain’s Tyson Fury in a pulsating 12-round battle.Wilder had Fury on the canvas twice, including a spectacular final round knockdown, but was unable to get the knockout victory he had promised to deliver at the Staples Center.The three judges were divided on the outcome, with one scoring it 115-111 for Wilder, another 114-112 for Fury and the third 113-113.“I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight,” said Wilder afterwards. “We poured our hearts out tonight. We’re both warriors, but with those two drops I think I won the fight.”Wilder, who remains unbeaten after 41 fights, immediately called for a rematch.“I would love for it to be my next fight,” Wilder said. “Let’s give the fans what they want to see. It was a great fight and let’s do it again.”Fury meanwhile insisted he had done enough to win.“We’re on away soil, I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won that fight,” Fury said.“That man is a fearsome puncher and I was able to avoid that. The world knows I won the fight.”Fury also said he hopes to arrange a rematch.“One hundred percent we’ll do the rematch,” Fury said. “We are two great champions. Me and this man are the two best heavyweights on the planet.”Until a sensational final round knockdown from Wilder, Fury appeared to be heading towards what would have been a remarkable upset.The 30-year-old “Gypsy King”, who returned to boxing this year after missing more than two years through depression, drink and drug problems, had boxed cleverly to evade the heavy-hitting threat of Wilder for most of the fight.The American champion struggled to connect cleanly with Fury throughout an absorbing contest, all too often sending huge arcing haymakers whistling past Fury’s head.

Harrogate Golf Club commitment to a more inclusive culture within golf

first_img Harrogate Golf Club in Yorkshire has become the latest English club to sign up to The R&A’s Women in Golf Charter.The club already has 85 women and girl members and it has committed to increasing that membership level by at least five per cent over the next three years.They aim to provide a welcoming environment to encourage more women and girls to enjoy the sport and to participate at every level.“Harrogate Golf Club has been at the forefront in golf since its inception in 1892 and is a founder member of The Yorkshire Union of Golf Club,” said club President, Alastair Davidson. “More recently, it was the first club in Yorkshire to gain Golf Mark accreditation, so it is no surprise the club is rising to the challenge of encouraging female participation in all levels of golf.“Over the last couple of years, we have introduced nine-hole Stableford competitions which are open to all genders and we have reviewed our competition structure so that seven-day lady members can play in the monthly medal competitions on Saturdays.“We have a thriving Mixed Section and run competitions such as Texas Scrambles where members from all sections (Men, Ladies and Juniors) play together in the same team. As part of our drive to be more inclusive we have also introduced a shorter 18-hole course called the Belmont which will soon be available for qualifying competitions.”Harrogate has named its immediate past captains, Maggie Gobbi and William Watson, as its Women in Golf Champions and both have already been working with the current Captains and Captains Elect to formulise the club’s commitment to the Women in Golf Charter moving forwards.Maggie, who has been a member at Harrogate for 12 years and has a handicap of 22, is working with the club’s professionals to promote a series of trial packages for beginner ladies and, with the support of the Ladies Section, is arranging social and practice sessions for the participants. 22-handicapper, William, a club member for 34 years, is helping the Junior Co-ordinator with efforts to build up the Junior Section.“It’s been fantastic to work with Harrogate on the Women in Golf Charter and to see how they have addressed a variety of aspects within the club from their initial recruitment campaigns through to the female representation on boards. We are looking forward to working with them over the coming year to ensure their commitments are a success,” said England Golf’s Women and Girls Manager, Lauren Spray.The Women in Golf Charter was launched last year to encourage more women and girls to play the game and to increase the number of job opportunities for women within the sport. England Golf was one of the first signatories to the Charter and subsequently more than 100 organisations have committed to it.For more information on the Women in Golf Charter please click here or get in touch with your England Golf Club Support Officer.Picture Caption (L to R) – Club President Alastair Davidson and its Women in Golf Champions Maggie Gobbi and William Watson. 16 Jul 2019 Harrogate Golf Club commitment to a more inclusive culture within golf Tags: The R&A, women and girls, Women in Golf Charterlast_img read more

Harbhajan Singh reveals stunning details about ‘champion’ players being allegedly forced out of the…

Powered by Firework Harbhajan Singh was present at the Agenda AajTak 2019 in New Delhi, where he revealed some shocking details about the 2011 World Cup team players and the dirty politics that are at play behind closed doors. The India team’s off-spinner did not mince his words when he revealed legendary players who played a crucial role in taking India to victory in the 2011 World Cup, were all sidelined for new players by the India team selectors like VVS Laxman and Gautam Gambhir.Advertisement “I don’t know what was the agenda of leaving us all aside. It was like your work is done now you can leave. We have to make a new team. Why do you need a new team? You need it when the team has not won. We won the World Cup and you should take the team forward,” he said.Advertisement He further added how they were all dropped without any proper reason and many players like VVS Laxman retired soon after India won the World Cup. The India team management fails to respect experienced and senior players and is only in a rush to bring in new talents and fresh faces to the field.“You can’t have too many youth and young players and expect them to win the World Cup. These things have been happening in Indian cricket and it continues till date. You need to change these things because the Champions who made India win, should be respected. But this is not the case in India.”Advertisement Harbhajan went on to add, how he, Yuvraj and Gambhir could have played in the next world but they were all dropped from the team. He found the decision ludicrous, “Many players from the 2011 World Cup could have played the next World Cup. Like Me and Yuvi, Gambhir, certainly we could have played the next world cup but we were dropped. ”In the 2015 World Cup, Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh, and Gautam Gambhir were snubbed by the then team management head Sandeep Patil. The 2015 world cup team only contained four players from the previous World Cup team – Mahindra Singh Dhoni, Ravichandran Ashwin, Suresh Raina, and Virat Kohli.England cricketer Danielle Wyatt trolls Yuzvendra Chahal for being smaller than her! Mary Kom will not compete against Nikhat Zareen in boxing league but Olympics trial bout still on for December 27  Advertisementlast_img read more
