The new episode begins with the Canadian Rolls discussing his journey to becoming a professional boxer, and how boxing was a way to stay removed from the personal troubles he encountered as a teen. Many boxing pundits have described Rolls (19-0, 10 KOs) as a placeholder for Golovkin before a potential trilogy between the Kazakh fighter and Alvarez. Rolls believes those opinions are mistaken.Join DAZN and watch GGG-Rolls: Sign up in U.S. | Canada”He’s going to see a hungry, hungry, hungry fighter,” Rolls said during the episode. “This is no tune-up fight. . . . You’re going to see the middleweights’ best-kept secret.” The episode then cuts to Golovkin in Big Bear, Calif., where he likes to train because of its isolation from distractions and the benefits of training at a higher elevation. Golovkin has a private gym at the top of an 8,200-foot summit; he needs to take a ski lift to access it. Golovkin says that he is focused only on Rolls and not on any fight that may follow. He believes the fight with Rolls will be a more “sincere” and “open” fight than his previous bout with Alvarez.The June 8 fight is the first of Golovkin’s six-fight contract that he signed with DAZN in March. Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) will be entering the ring for the first time since having his 39-fight unbeaten streak snapped by Alvarez in September.Rolls last fought in December, defeating KeAndrae Leatherwood by unanimous decision. DAZN, in collaboration with Unrealistic Ideas and executive producer Mark Wahlberg, has released the second part of its “40 Days: GGG-Rolls” docuseries chronicling the final eight weeks of preparation for Gennadiy Golovkin and Steve Rolls leading up to their June 8 fight at Madison Square Garden.This is the third edition of the “40 Days” series. The first edition — produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter of UNINTERRUPTED — focused on the bout between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs. The second edition — produced by Meek Mill and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation — focused on the Anthony Joshua-Andy Ruiz Jr. fight.
UEFA said it opened disciplinary cases for “improper conduct of their supporters (racist behavior, racist chanting).”The European football body said its disciplinary panel will deal with the cases Thursday.Spain and Russia will likely receive financial penalties if the cases are proven.Russia has already been fined €185,000 ($230,000) after being charged by UEFA over its fans’ conduct at all three of its group-stage matches in Poland.UEFA also threatened Russia with a six-point deduction in its 2016 European Championship qualifying group after some of its fans attacked stadium stewards in Wroclaw following the Czech match on June 8. UEFA has said the deduction would be enforced if fans repeated their violent behavior. The Russian FA has appealed that sanction.In the first proven case of racist abuse at Euro 2012, UEFA fined the Croatia football association €80,000 ($100,000) for a range of charges including insults directed at Balotelli.Discrimination monitors appointed by UEFA reported that around 300 Croatia supporters made monkey noises at the Italy forward during a June 14 match in Poznan.A Spanish fans’ group previously reported that some Spain followers made monkey noises at Balotelli during a June 10 match in Gdansk. The group, affiliated to the Football Supporters Europe network, said other Spanish fans intervened urging the offenders to stop.Gebre Selassie acknowledged that he was racially abused by Russians during the opening group match but declined to file a complaint.UEFA received reports from monitors supplied by FARE, a Europe-wide fans’ network, and later asked Czech team officials to help provide evidence which could be used to prosecute the case.Russian fans displayed “illicit” imperialist flags and set off fireworks at each match, while a fan carrying a national flag aloft ran across the pitch after the match against Poland in Warsaw on June 12.UEFA pledged a zero-tolerance policy toward combatting racism and discrimination inside Euro 2012 stadiums.Russia was heavily favored to advance from Group A but was eliminated as the Czechs and Greece reached the quarterfinals.On Monday, Russia FA president Sergei Fursenko announced his resignation during a televised meeting with state President Vladimir Putin.

Jack Grealish 1 Aston Villa star Jack Grealish is at the centre of more controversy after he was pictured lying on the floor “paralytic” while on holiday in Tenerife.The 19-year-old is enjoying a close season break with friends on the popular island and images have been circulating around social media of him lying on the street surrounded by cigarettes supposedly after a heavy night of drinking.Villa chiefs are aware of the photographs and will hold talks with the youngster, who made his first-team breakthrough last season, on his return to England.Grealish has been warned about his off-field antics by the club before, having been photographed apparently taking nitrous oxide earlier this year.A Villa statement read: “The club is aware of the photographs of Jack Grealish currently circulating.“We will be meeting with the player but any action will remain an internal matter.“There will be no further comment from the club.”
TORONTO — I don’t know who first said it.

Tagalog NPA John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Durant helps Warriors pull away over Nuggets Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC “The head butt really impaired my vision and it led to me walking into some stupid shots,” Lipinets said.Shawn Porter pummeled Adrian Granados for most of 12 rounds in a lopsided fight. There were more clinches in the first round of that fight than in the entire Lipinets-Kondo matchup.Porter is in line for another welterweight championship opportunity; he held the IBF crown in 2013-14. He improved to 28-2-1 in a bout that had little style, but plenty of action. The judges all had it 117-111 for Porter.“He gave me a little trouble here and there,” said Porter, who wants a rematch with WBA champ Keith Thurman, who beat him at Barclays Center last year. “I hurt my left hand in the sixth round, but I kept using it. I had to use my jab. It took a toll on me and by the 10th round I just couldn’t throw it anymore.”Granados is now 18-6-2.In what was billed a heavyweight eliminator, Dominic Breazeale (19-1, 17 KOs) stopped Eric Molina after eight rounds. Molina, exhausted after taking a battering in the eighth, had his arms hanging over the ropes when the round ended. A ringside doctor then stopped it.Molina (26-5) previously has lost to both Wilder and to WBA-IBF champion Anthony Joshua. Breazeale also has lost to Joshua.“Deontay is who I want to face,” Breazeale said. Already, Wilder was celebrating, but Stiverne got up. Unwisely, it turned out, because another big right as part of a flurry of punches sent the 38-year-old challenger back down.At that point, Wilder climbed atop the ropes in a neutral corner, shouting at Stiverne’s trainer to end things.When they didn’t, another right and then a mammoth left hook sent down the challenger for the final time with his “Alabama Slammer.”“One champion, one face, one name, he goes by Deontay Wilder,” the WBC champ said.Wilder won the belt from Stiverne in 2015 in a 12-round decision. He repeatedly insisted Stiverne would go down and out early in this one.ADVERTISEMENT Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

He wants England’s Anthony Joshua, the WBA/IBF champ, sometime next year, and was busy issuing challenges after disposing of Stiverne.“I’ve been waiting on that fight for a long time now,” he said. “I declare war upon you. Do you accept my challenge?“I know I’m the champion, I know I’m the best. Are you up for the test?”This was Wilder’s sixth defense, and his most ferocious. Stiverne, who last fought on Nov. 14, 2015, outpointing Derric Rossy, never had a chance. He was a substitute for Jose Ortiz, who failed a drug test.Stiverne did not land a punch and never should have bothered showing up.Earlier, Sergey Lipinets won a unanimous decision over Akihiro Kondo for the vacant IBF junior welterweight title, a decision that was lustily booed by the crowd of 10,924 at Barclays Center.In a bout featuring lots of action but lots of missed punches, the 28-year-old Lipinets of Kazakhstan won despite dealing with a cut on the forehead that bled for the final six rounds. He won 118-111 on one judge’s card and 117-111 on two others even though Kondo, fighting outside of his native Japan for the first time, carried much of the action in the second half of the bout.The AP scored it 115-113 for Lipinets, who is 13-0. Kondo fell to 29-7-1, losing for the first time in nine fights.

Ohio State sophomore Joey Bosa was a huge part of the Buckeyes’ national championship run this past year. He’s also one of the most popular players on the team – both in the locker room and with the fan base. The combination has apparently led to at least one Buckeyes supporter naming his new puppy after the defensive end.Kit Hartsfield, an Ohio State fan who actually played some ball at Austin Peay, tweeted out a photo of his incredibly cute new pet. He named him “Bosa”, and tweeted a photo at the player himself.

The fire started in one container aboard the ship and spread to additional containers.Efforts to extinguish the fire were launched on the same day but they were hampered by bad weather conditions.During the weekend, the ship’s crew members were evacuated to the tugboat Smit Nicobar after the fire increased in intensity.The USCG said the tugboat remained on scene, providing firefighting assistance.“We’ve been monitoring the situation to provide as much assistance as possible and keeping in open communication,” Chief Petty Officer Ryan Langley, operations unit watchstander at the Fifth District command center, said.
