Man City’s Guardiola sweating on Grealish, Silva injuries

Pep Guardiola is sweating on the fitness of Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva after the Manchester City pair limped off during the 3-1 Champions League victory over FC Copenhagen on Tuesday. Grealish, starting a match for the first time in more than a month, was substituted after just 21 minutes with a groin problem while Silva, who scored City’s second goal, sustained a heavy knock to his ankle in the second half. City face Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday and face a crucial month in March with matches versus Manchester United, Liverpool, Brighton and Arsenal. “I didn’t speak with the doctor but it looks muscular with Jack,” said Guardiola. “The last […]

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. Chelsea went into the break 1-0 down after Jefferson Lerma’s wondergoal in the first half, but Gallagher scored just a minute into the second half and then a 91st minute winner to break Palace’s resolve. Enzo Fernández added a third in the 94th minute of the match as Chelsea came away from Selhurst Park with three points. Gallagher’s first saw him finish well off a Malo Gusto cross, while for the second he slotted home neatly from the edge of the box […]

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 […]

Bayer Leverkusen win DFB Pokal thriller, go 30 games unbeaten

Bayer Leverkusen reached 30 matches unbeaten in all competitions this season with a 3-2 comeback victory over VfB Stuttgart to reach the DFB Pokal semifinals Tuesday. Jonathan Tah’s 90th-minute header won the game and spared Xabi Alonso’s team of having to play extra time ahead of a league game Saturday versus title rivals Bayern Munich. Tah was left completely unmarked to head in from close range and complete the comeback for the Bundesliga leaders after they had twice cancelled out Stuttgart goals. Leverkusen are the first team in Europe’s top five leagues to reach 30 games undefeated in all competitions from the start of the season since Juventus […]

Foden hits hat trick as Man City rally to beat Brentford

Phil Foden scored a brilliantly composed hat trick as Manchester City fought back to collect a 3-1 victory at battling Brentford on Monday and close to within two points of Premier League leaders Liverpool with a game in hand. Despite almost constant City pressure, Brentford led with a Neal Maupay goal after 21 minutes only for Foden to level just before half-time then add two more excellent goals as the visitors took control with another display of possession and probing. Liverpool, defeated by Arsenal on Sunday, lead the table on 51 points from 23 games, but City are up to 49 from 22 and Arsenal on 49 from 23. “He always had an […]

Joshua Buatsi wins WBA title eliminator, sets sights on Bivol

Joshua Buatsi took a big step toward a world light heavyweight title shot with a unanimous-decision victory over English rival Dan Azeez on Saturday at Wembley’s OVO Arena in London. Buatsi earned scores of 116-110, 117-109 and 117-109 in an eliminator for the WBA world light heavyweight title, held by Dmitry Bivol.

Azeez was knocked down twice in the 11th round, but he argued both were slips. Regardless, Buatsi was a worthy winner after resisting a spirited finish from […]

Nassourdine Imavov, once considered one of the top prospects in the UFC middleweight division, had a disappointing 2023. He started the campaign with a loss, and his only other outing resulted in a no contest.

Imavov defeated Roman Dolidze via majority decision (49-44, 47-47, 48-46) in the main event of UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas. Dolidze is a teammate at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas with both Curtis and Strickland, and Curtis was in Dolidze’s corner […]
