Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux Live Stream

Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko is the greatest fighter since Muhammad Ali, believes legendary promoter Bob Arum, Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux.

On Saturday, Lomachenko will defend his WBO world super-featherweight title against Guillermo Rigondeaux, holder of the WBA super-bantamweight crown, Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux.

The Madison Square Garden fight is the Ukrainian’s 11th professional bout and the first time that two double Olympic champions have faced off, Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux.

Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux Live

I’ve never seen a fighter as technically perfect as him, said Arum, Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux.

Podcast: 5 live’s full Lomachenko-Rigondeaux preview
Ali’s promoter in the 1960s has since worked with the likes of Roberto Duran, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The 85-year-old describes working with Lomachenko as the type of gift which puts him off retirement.

I am telling you without any reservation that Lomachenko is the greatest fighter I have seen since Muhammad Ali, Arum told BBC Radio 5 live’s boxing podcast, Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux

For me to take a modicum of credit would not be correct.

I’m not going to have any real part of it except to get him the fights necessary so that people acclaim him when he retires as the greatest fighter of all time and mention him in the same breath as Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson and those types, Rigondeaux vs Lomachenko Live.

Former four-weight world champion Roy Jones Jr has called Lomachenko-Rigondeaux the best professional fight ever made,Rigondeaux vs Lomachenko Live.

Rigondeaux, 37, is eight years older than his rival and has jumped two-weight classes to take the fight. Cuba’s 2000 and 2004 Olympic champion can win Lomachenko’s WBO title, a feat which would see him become a multiple-weight world champion, Rigondeaux vs Lomachenko Live.

He has been vocal on social media in denying those who have written him off but the weight jump, coupled with Lomachenko’s burgeoning reputation see him start as underdog with bookmakers, Rigondeaux vs Lomachenko

Lomachenko has lost once as a pro, a defeat to Orlando Salido in his second bout which was for a world title. And legendary trainer Freddie Roach believes Rigondeaux will come out on top, labelling him one of the best defensive fighters I have ever seen, Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux Live.

Arum admitted to BBC Sport boxing correspondent Mike Costello that the Cuban is phenomenal with a style which looks to pile up points, Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux Live.

The reason he hasn’t been marketable is because he has that Cuban style which is you win the early rounds and then you coast, said Arum. The difference between Rigondeaux’s philosophy and Lomachenko is Lomachenko is always in there looking for openings with the end result being to destroy his opponent – to look for weaknesses, knockout his opponent or make him quit, Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux Live.

VasyL Lomachenko and Guillermo Rigondeaux earlier this year announced a fight boxing purists had been begging for, with two of the world’s best pound-for-pound men going up against each other. Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux Live.

Both men are double Olympic gold medallists in their amateur days, Lomachenko triumphing in 2008 and 2012 while Rigondeaux took bantamweight honours in 2000 and 2004.

Given their impressive amateur records, the two are relatively inexperienced in the paid ranks with just 27 fights between them.

Cuba’s Rigondeaux remains unbeaten but is jumping up two weight divisions to face WBO super-featherweight champion Lomachenko, hoping to inflict a second career defeat on the Ukrainian.

When is Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux? Fight date

The fight was announced on September 15, three months before the fight date on December 9.

The massive showdown will take place at New York’s Madison Square Garden with a six-fight undercard including Irish 4-0 prospect Michael Conlan.

What time will Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux start?

The progress of the undercard, as always, will play a large part in dictating when the main event gets underway in New York.

Cotto vs Ali Live

Miguel Cotto (41-5, 33 KOs), one of the best fighters of his generation, is potentially ending his career on his own terms Saturday night, Cotto vs Ali Live.

The 37-year-old Puerto Rican, who has won six world titles in four different weight classes over a 16-year pro career, has set up a final bout against Sadam Ali (25-1, 14 KOs) for the WBO world super welterweight title at Madison Square Garden in New York, Cotto vs Ali Live.

Boxing fans would be wise to clear time in their schedules to see him off, although it sometimes takes multiple farewells before a fighter finally hangs the gloves up, Cotto vs Ali Live.

Cotto has fought some of the biggest names in the sport during his career, faltering against the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather but taking down others such as Shane Mosley and Sergio Martinez. A fan favorite due to his willingness to take on boxing’s best and his entertaining style, Cotto will go down as one of the more respected fighters of the past couple of decades, Cotto vs Ali Live.

Brian Campbell called him the most honest fighter of his generation for taking on so many challenges throughout career and handling them with transparency:

Cotto will be remembered for the honest effort he gave in his biggest fights and the consistency of the entertainment in which he regularly provided. A noted family man outside the ring, he was as human and real of a fighter inside it as his generation had to offer and a refreshing boxer-businessman who went a long way in making sure, along with securing big paydays for himself, that the fans still received what they wanted most.

Ali, his opponent Saturday night, isn’t anywhere near the level of those illustrious names, and that could be why Cotto ends up un-retiring at some point.

Cotto wanted to face the winner of the Gennady Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez bout, but a draw in that blockbuster matchup scrapped those plans. The desire to cap his career with against a high-profile opponent could draw him back to the ring, even as he approaches 40 years old.

Judging by the odds, Cotto’s final bow doesn’t figure to be the kind of kinetic, competitive contest fans have grown accustomed to seeing him in. According to OddsShark.com (as of Thursday, Nov. 29), Cotto is a -1000 favorite (bet $1,000 to win $100), Ali a +600 underdog. Cotto comes into the contest having won four of his last five bouts, the lone defeat coming against Alvarez in November 2015, Miguel Cotto

Auburn-Georgia did not get the moniker of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry by accident. The teams first played in 1892 at Piedmont Park in Atlanta in a game that was described as the social event of the year. And you wonder why Southerners dress up for college football games.

North Carolina-Virginia has the title of the South’s Oldest Rivalry despite kicking off later in 1892. It’s been played slightly more frequently than Auburn-UGA, which most recently took a year off during World War II. Still, entering the 121st meeting, Bulldogs-Tigers is one of the five most-played FBS rivalries, passing the dormant Missouri-Kansas this year.

Auburn is a stone’s throw from the Georgia border. The nearest major city to Auburn is Columbus, Georgia. Over 10 percent of Auburn’s students come from Georgia, twice as many as any other state (save for Alabama itself). There are more Auburn graduates in Atlanta than any other city, including Birmingham and Auburn itself.

Kovalev vs Shabranskyy

New York, NY: Former Unified Light Heavyweight World Champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (30-2-1, 26 KOs) returns to the ring Saturday, November 25 at The Theater Madison Square Garden to take on hard-hitting contender Vyacheslav “Lion-Heart Chingonskyy” Shabranskyy (19-1, 16 KOs) in a 10-round light heavyweight showdown. Kovalev vs Shabranskyy

Kovalev vs. Shabranskyy will be promoted by Main Events and Krusher Promotions in association with Golden Boy Promotions, and televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Kovalev vs Shabranskyy

Tickets for this exciting event will go on sale soon. Kovalev vs Shabranskyy

The Krusher, 34, from Chelyabinsk, Russia, rose to the top of the pound- Kovalev vs Shabranskyy for-pound rankings as he quickly tore through the light heavyweight division, stopping 26 of his 33 opponents. He won the WBO Light Heavyweight Title from Nathan Cleverly in 2013 when he stopped the then-unbeaten champion in Cleverly’s backyard. After three straight title defenses, all knockouts, Kovalev dominated future Hall-of- Shabranskyy vs Kovalev Live, Famer Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins in a unanimous decision shutout to add the WBA and IBF belts to his collection. He continued his run as the unified light heavyweight champion for two more years before meeting undefeated champion and Olympic gold medalist Andre “SOG” Ward in Las Vegas and on HBO pay-per-view. Kovalev dropped two controversial and hard-fought losses to the current pound-for-pound king. Kovalev vs Shabranskyy Live

Now, Sergey Kovalev is ready to write the next chapter of his career. Before returning to the United States from a summer in Russia, he spent time at a monastery in Greece to clear his head and prepare mentally and spiritually for his climb back to the top of his division. Kovalev said, “I learned a lot from my fights with Andre Ward. When you don’t win and when you suffer adversity, it makes you stronger. It also shows you who your real friends are. I feel like I cleaned out my life and now I’m ready to start fresh. I’m very excited to get back in the ring, and fight at Madison Square Garden for the first time, and I’m focused on the future. I’m not looking back.” Kovalev vs Shabranskyy Live

Shabranskyy, 30 of Zhytomyr, Ukraine, and fighting out of Los Angeles, California has quickly made a name for himself in the light heavyweight division. “Slava” made his professional debut in 2012 with 17 straight victories and 14 knockouts. His only career blemish is a hard-fought TKO loss to Sullivan Barrera, the Cuban sensation who is currently ranked #3 by the WBC and #2 by the WBA at light heavyweight. Since his loss to Barrera, Shabranskyy has two straight wins both coming by way of knockout, Shabranskyy vs Kovalev Live, including his most recent win over Todd Unthank May where he secured the WBC USNBC Light Heavyweight Title. This is Shabranskyy’s opportunity to shoot to the top of his division if he can pull off an upset of the former unified champion.

“I’ve been waiting for this fight a long time. I will take this chance to show everyone my abilities and qualities in the ring,” Shabranskyy said. “My coach, Manny Robles and I have been working on movement and defense, which together with my natural power will be more than enough to defeat a great fighter such as Kovalev. I’m proud to represent USA and Ukraine at this fight.”

Main Events CEO Kathy Duva said, “The Theater at Madison Square Garden is really a perfect place for Sergey to start the next chapter of his career. He needs to go out and remind people why they love the Krusher. Sergey is an exciting fighter who is a pleasure to watch in the ring and that’s what everyone is going to see on November 25th.” Kovalev vs Shabranskyy Live,

“Vyacheslav Shabranskyy is back, and ready to prove he will do everything to climb to the top, including facing a top-level fighter such a Kovalev.” said Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions Oscar De La Hoya. Shabranskyy vs Kovalev Live, “Shabranskyy is stronger and smarter inside the ring, and will show off his mastered talent when he faces Sergey. We are excited to partner with Kathy Duva and the Main Events team yet again for an amazing show that will no doubt bring the action.”

This Saturday, one of boxings most dangerous KO artists is in action when Sergey Kovalev (30-2-1; 26 KO) faces Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (19-1; 16 KO).

Kovalev: L – Andre Ward (TKO) | L – Andre Ward (UD) | W – Isaac Chilemba (UD)
Shabranskyy: W – Todd Unthank May (RTD) | W – Larry Pryor (KO) | L – Sullivan Barrera (KO)

How did these two get here?

Sergey Krusher Kovalev cut a fearsome path through the Light Heavyweight division, using his strong hands and mean streak to dominate opponents and becomes the clear king at 175 pounds. (Clear to anyone that is not Adonis Stevenson at least.) Then he met Andre Ward. Ward took a decision win over Kovalev last November in a fight most felt Kovalev should have won, then stopped the Russian in a rematch in June, though again, many felt it was unjustified due to possible low blows in the finish. Either way, Kovalev vs Shabranskyy Live, Kovalev now comes in off the first losses of his career. Since the Ward loss, he has let go of his longtime trainer John David Jackson, claiming at one point that he would not have a lead trainer for this fight. Hes also talked about moving up in weight to Cruiserweight. Its uncertain where Kovalevs head is at this point, Kovalev vs Shabranskyy,
On Kovalev… Sergey Kovalev vs Vyacheslav Shabranskyy Live

Krusher is back in action looking to not only return to winning ways, but rebuild his position at the top of the light-heavyweight division. Andre Ward took it all away but with the American now retired, the Russian can pick up a world title and fire out a reminder to his new-found rivals. And after splitting from long-standing trainer, John Davies Jackson, he has a new man in his corner for this one, Abror Tursunpulatov, Sergey Kovalev vs Vyacheslav Shabranskyy Live.

On Shabranskyy…

The Ukrainian is now based in the States so will be on home soil but knows he needs a solid base to spring a major surprise and beat Kovalev. He has lost once to another 175lbs star in Sullivan Barrera, but has been sparring with another, Dmitry Bivol, and super-middleweight world champion David Benavidez. Shabranskyy vs Kovalev

The WBO world title was one of the three Ward won off Kovalev before freeing them up with his surprise September retirement. It will take Kovalev back to the very beginning of his rise, when he took it away from Nathan Cleverly in four ferocious rounds, back in 2013. Wards recent retirement left the IBF and WBA Super along WBO belts free, with Artur Beterbiev (IBF) the first to fill one of the vacant voids, earlier this month, Shabranskyy vs Kovalev Live.

Ohio State vs Michigan State Live

Ohio State vs Michigan State: It will be interesting to see wh0 Ohio State vs Michigan State looks like on Saturday Night Football. This is a team coming off a loss on the road vs Iowa last weekend. A loss the may not have destroyed the Buckeyes’ conference title hopes, but might just have knocked them out of the national title picture.

And losing a game is one thing. Good teams do it often enough. It’s the manner in which Ohio State vs Michigan State Live Stream loss — giving up 55 points to an Iowa team the nobody has ever called a prolific scoring team. It was the worst loss of Urban Meyer’s tenure vs Ohio State, even worse than the 31-0 loss to Clemson in last year’s Fiesta Bowl. vs least the was a playoff game and the eventual national champion.

USC vs Colorado

West Virginia vs Kansas State

Believe me, if you want to take Michigan State and the points here, I can’t blame you. Logically it’s the safest position to take, as win or lose, the average margin of victory in any Spartans game this season is 9.33 points per game. the number shrinks in Big Ten play down to 5.5 points per game, so taking the Spartans makes all the sense in the world. I’m still going to take Ohio State, though. Just call it a gut feeling, but I think the after last week’s embarrassment, the Buckeyes are going to come out and play their best game of the season on Saturday Night Football.

The Ohio State Buckeyes bevs the Michigan State Spartans seven times in a row not too long ago, but MSU is trying to turn the trend around, winning three of the last six mvschups outright and going 5-3 against the spread over the last eight. In a game the might decide a spot in the Big Ten Championship Game, Michigan State meets Ohio State on Saturday Night Football afternoon vs the Horseshoe.

SportsLine’s Projection Model turned in double-digit profitable weeks last season across all college football picks, including a remarkable 18-4 run straight up to open the season. Anyone who followed it during those weeks profited big. It’s fresh off a week in which it nailed Miami’s upset of Virginia Tech and USC easily covering the spread against Arizona.

This week, the model simulvsed every Top 25 game 10,000 times, plus the rest of the slvse, and the results were surprising. The model is loving No. 16 Penn State to bounce back in a big way. Coming off losses to Ohio State and Michigan State in back-to-back weeks, SportsLine says the Nittany Lions cover a gigantic 31-point line against Rutgers with ease and win 42-7. Look for RB Saquon Barkley to go well over 150 yards from scrimmage.

Another team the model loves: Ohio State (-17), which is coming off a heartbreaking loss to Iowa. The Buckeyes got humbled last week and they’re going up against a Michigan State squad coming off a massive victory against Penn State. But don’t let one week of action deceive you.

Cma Awards 2017

The 51st annual CMA Awards didn’t open with an all-star performance on Wednesday night, although it got to one of those quickly enough. It began instead with Eric Church alone on a half-lit stage, singing “Amazing Grace.” Country music has been battered in recent weeks, and this awards gala – the first to take place since the deaths of 58 fans at Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas on October 1st – didn’t shy away from that fact.

Cma Awards 2017


CMA Awards 2017: The Complete Winners List
From Entertainer of the Year to New Artist, here are the winners of the 51st CMAs, 51st CMA Awards,

Church’s performance recalled Jason Aldean’s cold open last month on Saturday Night Live, less than a week after his set at Route 91 was interrupted by the shooting spree of a gunman. Segueing straight into Darius Rucker’s all-star sing-along of Hootie & the Blowfish’s 1994 hit “Hold My Hand,” the opening set the tone for how the CMAs would handle that tragedy: by turning to God and, for the first of many times during the evening, to music from all corners, 51st CMA Awards.

“We do what families do,” Carrie Underwood said during the opening monologue. “We come together and we pray together.” Her co-host, Brad Paisley, took a robust tone, declaring, “The best thing to do is sing our music loud and proud.” Later on, Underwood delivered a touching tribute to those who lost their lives in Las Vegas during her candlelit In Memoriam performance of the hymn “Softly and Tenderly, Cma Awards 2017.

The CMAs’ efforts at healing proved to be a mixed bag, and the monologue played a part. Underwood and Paisley, who celebrated their 10th year emceeing the event, joked about the “guidelines” mandating the awards show as a politics-free zone, spinning it into a musical bit mocking President Donald Trump. But the context wasn’t very funny: organizers had tried to bar mention of topics like gun control, thereby stifling conversation of the issues that must be addressed when tragedies like Route 91 or last weekend’s massacre at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, do occur, Cma Awards 2017.

Those guidelines were ultimately retracted, but the artists remained on their best behavior Wednesday night. The statements of the evening were left to someone like Keith Urban, who offered the live debut of his brand-new song “Female,” which had premiered earlier in the day. Written as a response to the sexual assault scandals that have reached from Hollywood to Nashville, it was well-meaning but slightly tone deaf considering that there wasn’t a single woman on the stage, Cma Awards 2017.

It didn’t help that some of the biggest upsets of the evening tended to go in favor of male performers, who were the only ones nominated for Entertainer of the Year – an honor Garth Brooks claimed for the second straight year. On more than one occasion, those upsets went specifically against Miranda Lambert. While she came away with Female Vocalist of the Year honors, it felt like a consolation prize given that she had already missed out on Album, Song and Single of the Year (the last of those going to Urban), each of which she deserved to win
