GOtv Boxing Night 20: You’re a coward, Real One taunts Joe Boy

first_imgRelatedPosts GOtv Boxing Night 20: Ehwarieme eyes world title Esepo delighted at winning best boxer prize at GOtv Boxing Night 20 Ehwariemi wins WBF title as Agbaje emerges best boxer at GOtv Boxing Night 20 West African Boxing Union lightweight champion, Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu, has launched a fresh verbal attack on Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph, the African Boxing Union lightweight champion, ahead of their 12 October ABU title bout at GOtv Boxing Night 20. The encounter will headline the eight-bout event, which is scheduled to hold at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos. Speaking after his training at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos on Saturday, Real One described Joe Boy as a coward and boxer with limited ability. He boasted that he will expose the ABU champion’s limitations in brutal fashion. “I know him very well. He is my boy; I know what he can do and what he can’t. He relies on raw power. He has no boxing brain. But raw power can only work against low-grade boxers. I’m not in that category. The ABU title is for me. His limited ability has taken him as far as it can. It is the end of the road for him on 12 October,” bragged Real One, who has serially claimed to have defeated Joe Boy in their amateur days. Real One’s verbal offensive is the latest trail of bad blood between both boxers, who are considered the best in their division. They have had to be pulled apart at press conferences and GOtv Boxing Night 18, where Real One never failed to taunt Joe Boy, who also always responded. The event will also stage the national bantamweight challenge between Sadiq Adeleke and Opeyemi “Sense’ Adeyemi. Also scheduled to be in action are Rilwan “Baby Face” Babatunde, WABU welterweight champion, who takes on Jafaru Sulaimon; Ridwan “Scorpion” Oyekola, national super featherweight champion, who fights Sikiru “Omo Iya Eleja” Shogbesan; Tope “TP Rock” Musa and Adewale “Masevex” Masebinu, national light heavyweight champion, who faces Kabiru “KB Godson” Towolawi in a rematch. Two debutants, Alaba “Eye Blow” Omotola and Bolaji Abdullahi, both graduates of GOtv Boxing NextGen Search, will also be in action in addition to an all-female bout featuring Cynthia “Bobby Girl” Ogunsemilore and Aminat “Smart” Yekini.Tags: ABU titleGOtv Boxing Night 20Oto “Joe Boy” JosephRilwan “Real One” Oladosulast_img read more

MBB : Breaking the cycle: Jardine escaped the streets, overcame obstacles to lead team as senior

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Thirteen years. That’s the fork in the road, the point that Scoop Jardine and his father, Antonio, describe as pivotal for a kid growing up in South Philadelphia.Antonio Jardine says it’s the age when a kid starts smelling himself. The age when he starts getting to know girls and begins to see the streets.Scoop says it’s the age when a kid feels grown up even though he’s really not. The age when he starts hanging out with 19- and 20-year-olds, thinking he’s the man.He rolls up the sleeves of his gray hooded sweatshirt to reveal his first tattoo. He got it at age 13. Two numbers, one on the underside of each forearm, represent the South Philly culture. A ‘0’ on the right and a ‘5’ on the left come together to form ’05,’ as in Fifth Street.The Fifth Street projects. That’s where Scoop is from.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I didn’t know any better,’ Scoop said. ‘I just got my block on me because that’s what we did.‘It’s something that I don’t regret, but now it’s like, ‘Wow, that was pointless.”Thirteen is also when Scoop thought he might be headed to jail after getting caught joyriding.Scoop, his cousin Jahron Richards and his friend Jamal Wilson were out cruising around in a car owned by Wilson’s parents. Richards, who is seven years older than Scoop, drove while the two youngsters enjoyed the ride.But Wilson took the vehicle without his parents’ permission. And when a car began tailing them, Scoop thought it was all over. Grand theft auto.‘I thought it was a cop,’ Scoop said. ‘I thought we were going down.’It turned out to be Scoop’s mother, who recognized the car and all three boys inside.‘That wasn’t good,’ Scoop said with a laugh.It’s a neighborhood where gunshots and drug deals faze no one, where people who have overdosed lie on the sidewalks ‘looking like zombies,’ as Wilson put it.Yet Scoop managed to avoid becoming another South Philly statistic. Through strong familial bonds and four years at Neumann-Goretti High School, a national basketball power, he made it out. He has already graduated from Syracuse University, and he’ll take two degrees with him when he leaves in May.Along for the ride are Richards and another cousin, Theron ‘Smoke’ Richards, who live with Scoop off campus. His basketball career has become a family affair of sorts, with relatives constantly in and out of his apartment and his father at every game since freshman year.Two disciplinary issues as a freshman left his future at Syracuse uncertain, and he said everyone expected him to be expelled. But those watchful eyes of his family and friends, some of whom have already seen the inside of a penitentiary, are what kept Scoop on track.Now he’s poised to lead a 30-1 Syracuse team into the Big East tournament and beyond, with all of South Philly on his back.‘We’re too talented, too gifted and have too many opportunities to be another statistic and caught in that cycle of South Philly,’ said Wilson, who played college basketball at Rhode Island. ‘So before any of us could get that chance, we were on each other’s a** about not going that route.’***Three years. That’s how long Scoop and Wilson shared a bed.They lived together in the South Walk projects at the home of Scoop’s grandmother, Deborah Jardine. There, the bond of friendship turned into a union of brotherhood.Both attended Neumann-Goretti. Both went on to play Division-I basketball. Scoop was the big brother Wilson never had.‘I was real raw growing up, and the six years we were together he basically made me who I am and influenced a lot of me,’ Wilson said.On the court the brotherhood meant matching Scoop’s competitiveness, so naturally they still remember the fight. A tussle for a loose ball turned into Scoop throwing a punch. Then they hugged like boxers. Then Scoop bit him.‘We started hugging and grabbing each other, and I bit him on the chest,’ Scoop said.Later that day, it was as if nothing had happened. They went home, back to South Walk and back to the shared bed.Off the court the brotherhood meant looking out for each other. The whole team was in and out of the home of Deborah Jardine, who is affectionately known as ‘Grams.’ It was the safe house for any and all of their Neumann-Goretti teammates.‘Grams’ house was kind of the home away from home for a lot of guys on the team,’ said Carl Arrigale, the head coach at Neumann-Goretti.Wilson and Scoop were joined by Wali Hepburn and Earl Pettis, both future college players, and Dion Waiters, Scoop’s teammate at SU. The group, which included others as well, huddled around the television for a turn on the PlayStation and raided Grams’ refrigerator on a daily basis.As long as they were in the house, they would be out of trouble. ‘I have to thank my mom for that,’ said Scoop’s father, Antonio Jardine. ‘Just having that spot where they could go so they don’t have to be in the streets.’In college, the brotherhood between Scoop and Wilson meant consoling each other.Scoop said everybody thought he was going to be kicked off the team and possibly expelled after two separate legal incidents his freshman year. Wilson was kicked off the team at Rhode Island in December after three-plus years of butting heads with then-head coach Jim Baron.‘If you start out young and you’re very talented, everybody in South Philly kind of puts you on a pedestal,’ Wilson said. ‘And that pedestal sends you to college a little bit arrogant and ahead of yourself.’The first incident was a sexual assault allegation against Scoop, Jonny Flynn, Rick Jackson — who played with Scoop at Neumann-Goretti — and a fourth SU student. They were later cleared of all criminal or university charges, but the details are still unknown and the situation remains mysterious. The same year, Scoop allowed a cousin to use a stolen Syracuse ID card and purchase $115.65 worth of food.Wilson, who is a year younger, said Scoop called him after those two incidents and warned him about what to look out for in college. Scoop’s snap-out-of-it moment came as a freshman, meaning he had time to reform.Wilson was given the boot midway through his senior season.‘What happened with him, fortunately it happened early, so he got his wake-up call right away,’ Wilson said.Two weeks after Wilson was dismissed, Scoop called him to talk. He convinced his best friend to stay in school and earn a degree. He wouldn’t let him drift back to South Philly to fade into the life they fought to avoid.Like always, the conversation ended with ‘I love you.’***Almost four years. That’s the combined amount of time Scoop’s cousins Smoke Richards and Jahron Richards have spent in jail.They fell victim to the spin cycle. They were South Philly statistics.‘Once you get in the circle, that line is like an electric gate that will zap you right back in,’ Smoke Richards said.Smoke Richards was zapped back in when he tore apart his left knee, shattering his dreams of becoming a college running back. Once his knee crumpled under the weight of multiple defenders as a sophomore on Penn Wood High School’s junior varsity team, his mindset changed.He had a new first priority.‘It was go sell drugs,’ said Smoke Richards, now 35. ‘That was my first thought.’He’d seen his cousins and friends all do it. Hell, slangin’ was what got them the girls, cars and money they flashed around the neighborhood. So it couldn’t be that bad, right?Wrong.Smoke Richards sold cocaine, marijuana and heroin on the streets of South Philly while already on the run from police. After six to seven years of hiding, he was caught and served two years.Jahron Richards, 30, dropped out of high school to hang out with a group of people who smoked weed and stole cars. He served a year and a half for charges stemming from each of those activities.‘Before I went to jail, I could barely read or write or do math or any of that,’ Jahron Richards said. ‘I was being around the wrong crowd and influenced by the wrong people.’Now, they have escaped the circle and become the right people. Now, they help Scoop.Jahron Richards and Smoke Richards live with Scoop in a three-bedroom apartment off campus in Syracuse. They’ve been instructed on how to take care of Scoop after a crash course from Antonio Jardine. Their job is to keep him in line, make sure he learns from their mistakes and stays out of trouble.‘Don’t fall weakness to what we have done,’ Smoke Richards said he told Scoop.They try to make Scoop’s life as easy as possible so he can focus on basketball. They clean the apartment, make his bed if he forgets and cook him food.Smoke and Jahron Richards bicker, almost like a married couple, over who is the better cook. Jahron Richards says he’s better because he is great with seasonings. Smoke Richards claims to be the best because he makes good food without seasonings, ‘which only kill you faster.’Plus Jahron messed up the grits on Monday morning. Smoke and Scoop’s younger brother rag on him for that.‘When I go home, it’s great because it’s not about basketball,’ Scoop said. ‘You get away from it, and it’s fun. It’s family moments. I’m grateful for it.’They’re treated like family within the basketball program, always hanging out with the players and interacting with the coaches. Scoop said they even play pick-up games with some of the managers.And after nearly a year in Syracuse, they’ve found a circle that’s beneficial to be a part of.‘Since I’ve been here, I’ve met so many people,’ Jahron Richards said. ‘I definitely got emotionally attached to Syracuse. I know I’m definitely going to miss all this.’***Twenty-five days. That’s the maximum amount of time Scoop has left as a Syracuse basketball player.It scares him a little. Life without Syracuse seems odd after being here for five years.He’s morphed from a 17-year-old kid on a pedestal into a 23-year-old adult mature enough to be a coach one day.‘I think he’s matured and improved as much as you could ever ask somebody to,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. ‘He’s grown up a lot.’It’s a transformation that is remarkable, not only in its broad scope — from the streets of South Philly to Syracuse — but also in it’s fortuitousness.He could have easily been shown the door after back-to-back bouts of trouble his freshman year. But Syracuse took a chance on him. Boeheim, Athletic Director Daryl Gross and SU Chancellor Nancy Cantor were all part of a team that went to bat for him, Scoop said.And he’s thankful.‘Everybody thought they were going to give me the boot,’ Scoop said. ‘… They all took a chance for me. It’s funny because now you look four years later, they took a chance and I proved them right.’Scoop admits there are still people who view him as a knucklehead and troublemaker after those incidents. But he brushes them off, saying he will continue to do what he does and leave his past behind him.This year, he’s proving critics wrong and leading Syracuse toward a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. His timely shot-making and leadership abilities have guided this team to the best regular season in school history.April 2 is the date for this year’s national championship in New Orleans. That’s the ultimate prize, the ultimate capstone for Scoop’s career if he can achieve it.Back home, South Philly continues to ride the wave. Hepburn, a former high school teammate of Scoop’s, said Syracuse basketball is the talk of the town. Everyone clears off the streets and into a place with a television to watch one of their own as he attempts to bring home a title.A title for Scoop would be a title for Fifth Street.‘It’s for everybody,’ Scoop said. ‘We’re doing it for back home.’mjcohe02@syr.educenter_img Published on March 7, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: | @Michael_Cohen13last_img read more

England Golf Partnership welcomes new school sport funding

first_img21 Mar 2013 England Golf Partnership welcomes new school sport funding The England Golf Partnership (EGP) has welcomed the government’s £150m-a-year boost for primary school sport. Golf is already a popular sport in schools and it is hoped that the new funding will help to get more children playing the game and encourage even closer links between schools and golf clubs. The new funding arrangements, part of the Olympic Legacy, include: •    Ring-fenced money to go directly to primary schools where head teachers will decide how to spend it. •    A greater role for Britain’s sporting and voluntary organisations, including National Governing Bodies, to increase the specialist coaching and skills development on offer for primary schools. “This is very positive news and provides an exciting opportunity for golf, which already has a strong presence in schools,” said Roger Moreland, the EGP’s chief operating officer. The Partnership brings together the amateur governing body, England Golf, and the PGA to grow the game with the support of the Golf Foundation and Sport England. The most recent School Sport Survey, in October 2010, showed that 44 per cent of schools in England delivered golf; an increase from 14 per cent in 2004 The Golf Foundation is an established force in schools through its HSBC Golf Roots programme, which has led to 39 out of 46 English counties including golf in their School Games in the current academic year. This includes training for young volunteers to help run the events and links to golf clubs where many of the events are held.   The Foundation also works closely with the EGP’s network of County Golf Partnerships to foster links between schools and golf clubs and to encourage youngsters to progress to membership. Brendon Pyle, the Foundation’s development manager, commented: “We have a very good structure in place with Tri-Golf in primary schools and support for PGA Coaches to work in schools and, through our new Junior Golf Passport, offering children a pathway into learning at the golf club. “It is also significant to note that funding has now been allocated to Sportivate and Satellite Club projects for young people below the age of 14 down to 11.  Golf Xtreme will form the basis of a new and exciting informal offer to this age group. “Through HSBC Golf Roots we have been able to show that golf can be easily adapted to schools and help to develop skills for life in young people. It’s not just about playing, it’s about integrity and developing personal and social skills.” The County Golf Partnerships (CGPs) develop links between schools and golf clubs, which are able to take advantage of a host of initiatives to support junior golf. These include the GolfMark for junior and beginner-friendly clubs, which has now been awarded to over 600 clubs; the National Skills Challenge which makes practice fun; and the Junior Organisers’ Handbook which guides those running junior sections. The CGPs also work closely with the County Sports Partnerships which will help schools link up with local coaches, clubs and sports governing bodies.     Richard Flint, the England Golf development manager, added: “Golf is very well placed to help primary schools offer the best possible sporting experience to children. This is a time of great opportunity for all.” Caption: Charge! School children take part in the Golf Foundation’s HSBC Golf Roots programme.last_img read more

Perenara celebrates 100th with a derby win

first_imgWinger Ben Lam scored two of the Hurricanes’ four tries on Saturday as they notched a third-straight win and handed the Highlanders their first defeat of the season.The scores were locked 12-12 entering a final half-hour which the hosts dominated, scoring through a long-range penalty to Jordie Barrett and tries to reserve winger Vince Aso and Lam.Both tries required expert, diving finishes in the corner from the wide men when tackled by the cover defence, as did Lam’s first-half try.It was the sort of finishing required as two of the competition’s most resilient defensive sides went toe-to-toe, with the Hurricanes’ ball-in-hand style prevailing against the kick-based Highlanders approach.It was a fitting way for halfback TJ Perenara to bring up 100 games for the Hurricanes, who have won seven of their last eight Kiwi derby games at home.A dampener on the win is a possible serious rib injury to All Blacks flanker Ardie Savea, who hobbled out of the game soon before halftime.The Highlanders, who opened their campaign with three-straight wins in Dunedin, were the only unbeaten team coming into round six.They crossed once in each half through Test winger Waisake Naholo, with the second showcasing his exceptional pace as he chased a kick ahead.The result means the Crusaders, Chiefs, Hurricanes and Highlanders have all won three matches, with the Kiwi sides all residing in the top six on the overall table standings.last_img read more

Fight for Anna Nicole Smith’s body turns into a circus

first_img“It was delightful having everyone,” he said at the end of the day. Everyone probably would not agree. Smith’s longtime companion, Howard K. Stern, claims he is executor of her will and wants her buried next to her son in the Bahamas. Her estranged mother, Vergie Arthur, wants her buried in Smith’s home state of Texas. Photographer Larry Birkhead hopes DNA taken from Smith will help prove he fathered the former centerfold’s 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn, who could inherit millions. Seidlin has said the dispute could be lengthy. The hearing, which began Wednesday, took all day Thursday and was to continue today. Lawyers for all three took swipes at each other’s clients throughout Thursday’s hearing in a room jammed with about 50 people. Reporters sat on the floor and atop a credenza, punching away at handheld computers. Courthouse staffers struggled to push their way through. There were not enough chairs for all the attorneys. Lawyers for Stern and Arthur fought Birkhead’s attorneys’ plea to gather additional DNA from the body of Smith, who died a week earlier, though Seidlin eventually ordered another cheek swab taken. Stern’s attorneys called Arthur’s move to gain her estranged daughter’s remains “sick” and the mother’s attorneys charged back that Smith’s longtime companion had no rights whatsoever. The attorneys, at times, buried their faces in their hands. They interrupted Seidlin repeatedly. Some even refused to shake hands. Unfazed, Seidlin addressed the attorneys as “my good lawyer,” or as “California” or “Texas” to note their state. The more tense the mood got, the more steadfastly he sought civility. “I don’t want to attack one another,” he said. It was a milder tone than Seidlin struck as he took over the case Wednesday and declared Smith’s corpse would stay refrigerated in the medical examiner’s office until he said otherwise. “This body belongs to me right now,” he said then. “This body’s not leaving Broward County till I make the ruling.” Seidlin ordered the medical examiner’s office to swab Smith’s cheek, even though DNA samples already had been collected. He said he wanted to make sure her body wouldn’t have to be exhumed. “When we bury her, I want it to be forever,” he said. Smith, 39, died Feb. 8 after collapsing at a Florida hotel. As the proceedings dragged on, police investigating a burglary report in the Bahamas went into a mansion that Stern and Smith shared. Stern, who was at the mansion with the officers, claims a computer, home videos and other items were taken from the house after Smith’s death.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

And as custody of Anna Nicole Smith’s body and of the former Playboy Playmate’s infant daughter devolved Thursday into an all-out legal circus, Circuit Judge Larry Seidlin became the affable ringmaster. On the second day of an often acrimonious emergency hearing over Smith’s remains, Seidlin, 56, called lawyers “terrific” and “beautiful.” He divulged the minutiae of his days, from his morning swim to the tuna sandwich he was having when assigned the case. He so frequently spoke off the cuff that he seemed like he was auditioning for a TV court show. And he really seemed to enjoy it. last_img read more

Deschamps World Cup warning sparked Giroud switch

first_img0Shares0000Olivier Giroud has scored 29 goals in 69 appearances for France © AFP/FilePARIS, France, Feb 4 – Olivier Giroud revealed on Sunday his move from Arsenal to Chelsea was motivated by a World Cup warning from France coach Didier Deschamps.Having dropped down the pecking order with Arsene Wenger’s Gunners, Giroud knew he would need to be playing more regularly if he is to convince Deschamps to take him to Russia in June. “I called Didier Deschamps a week before the end of the transfer window as I needed his opinion,” the 31-year-old striker told TF1.“He encouraged me to change clubs,” added Giroud, who signed an 18-month deal with the English Premier League champions.Giroud has been a consistent part of Deschamps’s plans despite a plethora of attacking talent in France, and the target man has scored 29 goals in 69 France appearances.“You know how attached I am to the national team and I want to play at a World Cup in Russia, which will surely be my last, so I have to give myself the best possible chance,” he said, adding that he “needed a new challenge, a new club”.The man who spearheaded Montpellier’s astonishing Ligue 1 title winning campaign in 2012 said the lure of working with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte determined his destination.“Dortmund were interested but for a loan deal, Sevilla too, my agent even got a call from Roma,” Giroud revealed.“But the choice was clear and obvious once I knew that Antonio Conte wanted to work with me.”With first-choice striker Alvaro Morata sidelined by a back injury, Conte had been in the market for a player with Giroud’s physical presence.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
