Sainz in no rush to decide next move after Ferrari sign Hamilton

Carlos Sainz will take his time to decide where he spends “the most important three or four years” of his Formula One career, having found out Ferrari will replace him with Lewis Hamilton in 2025. Ferrari revealed the blockbuster Hamilton signing at the start of February, shortly after signing Sainz’s teammate Charles Leclerc to a new contract. Sainz had gone into the off-season hoping to secure a similar deal, but now has to look elsewhere.

Pochettino hails ‘priceless’ Gallagher after Chelsea comeback win

Mauricio Pochettino stated match-winner Conor Gallagher is “priceless” to Chelsea after his two goals helped them to a 3-1 victory at Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Monday evening.

Shohei Ohtani says he feels like a rookie again with Dodgers

Roughly 70 media members formed a half-circle around a small backdrop at the Los Angeles Dodgers’ facility late Friday morning, waiting for Shohei Ohtani to conduct his first media session. About a dozen of them had shown up hours earlier, before the sun had fully risen, just to catch a glimpse of him driving into the players’ parking lot. Ohtani’s gravitas has been glaringly obvious through the first two days of spring training, but he’s merely trying to conduct himself as the new guy. After six years with the crosstown rival Los Angeles Angels, he sees himself as a “rookie” all over again. “I […]

Leverkusen crush Bayern to go 5 points clear in Bundesliga

Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen outplayed champions Bayern Munich for a 3-0 triumph on Saturday that sent them five points clear at the top of the league and put them firmly in charge of the title race.

Teofimo Lopez tops Jamaine Ortiz, retains title despite boos

Teofimo Lopez strutted his way to the ring Thursday night accompanied by a sword eater and other circus acts as he channeled Hugh Jackman’s “The Greatest Showman” complete with top hat and ringmaster robe. He was anything but in an uneventful junior welterweight title defense versus Jamaine Ortiz, a unanimous-decision victory for Lopez that elicited constant boos from the Mandalay Bay crowd. Lopez (20-1, 13 KOs) prevailed via scores of 117-111, 115-113 and 115-113. And while he kept his WBO title at 140 pounds, he failed to put on a show and was frustrated once again by a slick southpaw […]
