Pacquiao defaces Algieri to retain WBO welterweight belt

Manny Pacquiao showcased his supremacy over American Chris Algieri as he won via emphatic fashion in their WBO welterweight championship bout on November 23 at The Venetian Macao.

Pacquiao blasted the 30-year old New Yorker with timely hits and accurate power punches, thereby frustrating the challenger as Algieri decided to backpedal for most parts of the fight to be able to survive up to the final bell. The judges scored it 119-103, 119-103, and 120-102 for the reigning champion who improved his boxing record to 57 wins, five losses, and two draws.

The “Pambansang Kamao” floored Algieri six times as referee Genaro Rodriguez let the bout finish when it appears to be that although obviously outmatched, the 5-10 former kickboxer was game in wanting to reach the conclusion of the bout. This is the first loss of Algieri on the boxing ring.

A new facet in Pacquiao’s arsenal is that he never wavered up to the end. In previous fights, he lowered his guard in later parts of fights he was dominating to let opponents land a throw here and there.

Pickings have been slim for Pacquiao, whose last opponents that gave him trouble were Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Márquez, but everything else is just a perceived ‘warm up’ match to the much clamored skirmish between the soon to be 36-year old Filipino and Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

When Kobe Bryant will pass Michael Jordan on the career scoring list

Originally posted on For The Win:

Kobe Bryant enters the 2014-15 season with 31,700 career points. He sits at 4th on the all-time list, behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928 points) and Michael Jordan (32,292 points).

Kobe needs to score 592 points this season to catch Jordan. If he averages 13.83 points this season — his average last season — then he’ll pass Jordan on January 21 in the Lakers’ game at New Orleans. If he averages 20 points, he’ll reach the mark the day after Christmas at Dallas. If he maintains his career average of 25.46 points per game, then he’ll pass Jordan on December 14 at Minnesota. And finally, if he puts up 81 points per game this season (because, well, why not?), then he’ll overtake Jordan for third on the all-time list on November 12 when the Lakers visit the Pelicans.

Fabrício Werdum tUFC 180akes on Mark Hunt for the interim heavyweight championship in the main event of UFC 180 on November 16, Philippine time, at the Arena Ciudad de México in Mexico City, Mexico. This will be the first time the MMA promotion will have an event in the country.

Werdum was originally set to face current champion Cain Velasquez, but the latter had to pull out due to an injured knee. The 37-year old Brazilian sports an 18-win, five-loss, one-draw record and last fought Travis Browne to a unanimous decision win on April 19.

Hunt recently knocked out Roy Nelson less than two months ago in Saitama, Japan. His MMA record is 10-8-1.

Other bouts in the main card include:

Jake Ellenberger vs Kelvin Gastelum (welterweight)

Ricardo Lamas vs Dennis Bermudez (featherweight)

Augusto Montaño vs Chris Heatherly (welterweight)

Edgar García vs Héctor Urbina (welterweight)

The preliminary card includes a pair of The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America final bouts. Yair Rodríguez battles Leonardo Morales in the featherweight division, while Alejandro Pérez takes on José Alberto Quiñónez in the bantamweight class.

Kobe Bryant had the perfect sarcastic reply to a reporter’s question

Originally posted on For The Win:

Behind a career-high 41 points from Klay Thompson, the Warriors handed the Lakers their fourth loss of the season Saturday night. After the game, a reporter asked Kobe Bryant about the team’s poor start, and Kobe burned him to a crisp.

“You’ve never been 0-and-4 in your career. Does that bother you?”

“No it doesn’t bother me. I’m festively jovial about it.”

Three Defining Legacies in Popular Culture

Originally posted on Dexter Manley's Book Club:

I am here to argue that the three most influential human beings in popular culture in the past 25 years have been a triumvirate of NBA basketball players. You can have Michael Jackson, Madonna, Jay Z, Will Smith, Steven Spielberg, and any of the dozens of other individuals (or groups) that have driven popular culture (and social consciousness) to be where it is today.

But Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, and Allen Iverson changed the landscape of American (and perhaps global) culture inarguably, irrevocably, and in major paradigm shifting ways.

Old man knocks out boxer who never knew he didn’t have a chance

Originally posted on For The Win:

We don’t know much about this video, other than the fact that in it an old guy rocking a very snuggly-looking Cosby sweater beats the stuffing out of a young boxer.

The best part is how the young boxer thinks he’s having fun until the first punch lands. Then things get super serious super fast.

Old-man strength is not something to take lightly.

(Thanks to Sports Pickle for sharing.)
