It’s “Big Baby,” who weighed in at nearly 304 ½ pounds Friday, and not Deontay Wilder who could end up with the next fight against Joshua, the unbeaten British heavyweight who holds three belts.Miller has heard the talk of a potential Joshua match but said he’s seen no paperwork about it, so isn’t worried about the possibility.“I can’t think about nothing else past Saturday right now except whooping this guy’s behind,” Miller said. “That’s all that matters to me.”Titled “Straight Outta Brooklyn,” the card includes Jacobs’ first bout at Barclays Center since 2015. The popular cancer survivor from the Brownsville section of Brooklyn expects plenty of his home fans, while Miller will be fighting there for just the second time.“It’s going to be fun,” Miller said. “I’m not just the Brooklyn champ, I’m the people’s champ.”ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award View comments FILE – In this April 12, 2018, file photo, heavyweight boxer Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller shadow boxes during a workout at Gleason’s gym in the Brooklyn borough of New York.

That could send Joshua to an interim bout against Miller while he raises his profile in the U.S. in case a Wilder bout takes place outside his native Britain, where he has fought all 21 professional bouts.In the meantime, Miller said he’s blocking out all the talk — even if nobody else is.“I know he doesn’t believe it, but what we all we can do is say that Jarrell Miller against Joshua is a fight we’re very interested in. If we’re going to come to America, that’s a fight that would definitely appeal to us,” promoter Eddie Hearn said.“I think if has a commanding performance against Duhaupas, why not make that fight happen? But listen, whether he takes it or not is up to Jarrell, and whether he believes it or not, is up to him as well.”The brash Miller expects to deliver the commanding performance against Duhaupas, who was stopped by Wilder in a 2015 fight.“I think the main thing is just make him feel something he’s never felt before,” Miller said, “a big guy that comes forward and hits him everywhere to make him just realize that eventually he’s going to break down, that he’s in a war for his life.”Jacobs could also move onto something big with a victory. He might have to wait a while for Golovkin, who fights Vanes Martirosyan next week and perhaps Canelo Alvarez later in the year after their planned May 5 rematch was scrapped. Alvarez was suspended for six months by the Nevada Athletic Commission for failing two drug tests.Hearn also mentioned Jermall Charlo, who became the WBC’s interim middleweight champ with a second-round knockout of Hugo Centeno Jr. last week at Barclays Center.“Right now I see Daniel Jacobs, as, even at this stage of his career, the emerging star again of the middleweight division and we’re going for all those big fights,” Hearn said. “Gennady Golovkin, possibly another title that might become vacant. Mr. Charlo has been running his mouth recently, we love that fight also.”last_img read more

Skip A Meal Week raises money for children’s fund

first_img“Normally you say, `Guys, we want to do this and please chip in some money,”‘ Newcomer said, but “this effort is more creative. “You can skip lunch and see what it’s like to go without a meal. Or you can skip dinner and have a really long time between lunch and breakfast,” he added. Either way, you will be raising money for children, he added. Kiwanis members planned to skip breakfast at the club’s regular meeting this week, Crosby said. That will raise about $160, he added. While the money goes to Kiwanis International, it is funneled back to local clubs who apply for grants from Kiwanis International, Crosby said. Grants from Kiwanis International to local projects have resulted in the past in new playground equipment for a park in Fullerton, an after-school computer program for children in Escondido, and a free summer residential camping program for at-risk children in Little Rock, Ark. For Skip A Meal Week, the Whittier Kiwanis are teaming up with other local civic clubs to make the effort a success, including the Greater Whittier Kiwanis, Whittier College’s Circle K Club and La Serna High School Key Clubs. To donate, send checks made payable to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund to c/o Whittier Rio Hondo Kiwanis Club, P.O.

Delort targets Premier League return with new club Wigan

first_img Andy Delort 1 Wigan’s new striker Andy Delort believes he will fit right in at the DW Stadium and fire the club back to the Premier League.The 22-year-old was joint top-scorer for Tours in Ligue 2 last season, topping the goal-scoring charts with West Ham new boy Diafra Sakho – who also netted 24 times.Delort is hoping to carry on his fine form in England and is optimistic that he will make his debut against Blackburn at the weekend.“Wigan immediately seemed like the obvious choice. As soon as I visited the facilities I felt right at home. I spoke with the coach [Uwe Rosler] and it felt right,” Delort told La Nouvelle Republique.“I think I could get to the Premier League with Wigan. That would be perfect. If not, I know that if I have another good season then I can attract interest from a Premier League club.“The international break has given me a chance to get some work in so I really hope that I can be in the side for the derby with Blackburn on 13th September.”last_img read more

Expert view: Lack of Champions League football means Spain star won’t join Liverpool

first_imgLiverpool are unlikely to be able to prise Spanish forward Pedro away from Barcelona because of their inability to offer Champions League football next season, according to talkSPORT’s Merseyside correspondent.The diminutive attacker signed a contract extension at the Nou Camp until 2019 earlier this season but his future remains in doubt, particularly with his Spain place far from secure and just a year to go until Euro 2016.The Reds have allegedly expressed interest in the player but the 27-year-old is an afterthought as Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke remains their prime attacking target, according to Dominic King.“Pedro is a top player but the one thing that would hold that back is the Champions League side of it,” King told the Transfer Tavern.“Would that be what he wants with the pedigree he has got? He scored in the final for Barcelona four years ago.”The deal for Benteke, 24, is reportedly imminent but there is still some distance between Liverpool and Villa’s valuations of the striker, which King revealed is currently proving a stumbling block in the deal going through.He added: “Benteke is obviously the prime target but not at the price that Villa are talking about.“The release clause [a reported £32.5million] won’t see any business done at that price.”last_img read more

Huge injury blow as midfield star could face eight weeks out

first_img1 Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has broken his foot in training and is likely to be out for up to eight weeks, it has been reported.The 25-year-old England international suffered the injury to his right foot on Friday and is expected to undergo surgery on Monday, which will keep him sidelined for the next two months.Henderson sustained the injury in one of his first sessions back in action after he had returned from the US earlier in the week following treatment on a heel injury. The two injuries are believed to be unrelated – the heel injury was on the other foot to the one broken in training.He was in contention for Sunday’s game with Norwich. The games he will miss include Everton on October 4 and Chelsea on October 31.Henderson, who has featured just twice for Liverpool this season, is also unlikely to feature in England’s final Euro 2016 qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania, and November’s friendlies with Spain and France.

Other athletes that performed well on the day included Siobhan Gallgher on her duathlon debut and will certainly make more improvements once she hits the water in the summer months and Paul “Saucy” Doherty who has just returned from warm weather training in Portugal was also in top form having worked hard on his bike throughout the winter months.The next outing will be this weekend in Limerick, in the European Duathlon Championships. A number of athletes from the club have been chosen to represent Ireland in this race (Gavin Crawford, Michael Black, Margret Kelly, Pauric Kelly, Hazel Sorcher and Adrain Callaghan) and we wish them all the best, and judging by the performances over the past number of weeks a few will be hoping to finish well and take some silverware back to the northwest.As ever the club is always on the look out for new members, if you are thinking about joining you will find all the details you need on www.letterkenny247.com LETTERKENNY TEAM REPRESENTING IRELAND IN EURO DUATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS was last modified: April 12th, 2011 by gregShare 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:buncranaBurnfootduathlonletterkennyLimericklast_img read more
