Anthony Joshua Pummels Wladimir Klitschko To Cement Convincing Title Win By TKO

Klitschko was knocked down by a left hook and one more time before the referee David Fields stopped the fight while Klitschko was absorbing a flurry of punches by Joshua in the corner. Yet after Klitschko had, remarkably, looked nearly the younger of the two fighters in the stretch, Joshua demonstrated real heart to go with his power as he unleashed a right uppercut that signalled the final assaults on the Ukrainian's scrambled senses.

4 takes on the final 4 draft picks

4 takes on the final 4 draft picks

It's appropriate. It was the same exact pick at which the Cowboys drafted Dak Prescott in '16 - because Dobbs has the same kind or SEC pedigree and National Football League potential. He does need some work with his accuracy and decision making. "I know it's rare, and I learned how to take advantage of the connection". Expectations were extremely high for Dobbs as he entered the 2016 college season at Tennessee, but many scouts and pro teams are looking at performances that stand out - SEC ... Read More

Browns still investigating Caleb Brantley battery allegations

Browns still investigating Caleb Brantley battery allegations

Deciding not to keep Brantley seems to be an option under consideration for the team, though they reportedly met with him before making the pick and did research of their own into the battery charge. The woman needed a root canal after the incident. Two witnesses saw Brantley punch the woman according to police. The [defendant's] use of force was clearly out of retaliation and not self-defense.

Mumbai prevail in Super Over

Tasked with the job of bowling the Super Over , the unflinching Bumrah delivered in the face of tremendous pressure and came out victorious against the much-experienced pair of Brendon McCullum and Aaron Finch. "We lost the game rather than them winning it". Pune bowlers rose to the occasion, defending a sub-par total of 157 with a controlled bowling performance as they rode on brilliant performances by Imran Tahir (3/18) and man- of-the-match Lockie Ferguson (2/7).

Jets WR Smith out for season after ACL surgery

Jets WR Smith out for season after ACL surgery

Smith began last season on the physically unable to perform list as he worked his way back from the injury. Maccagnan says that Devin Smith tore his ACL at OTAs and will be out for the 2017 season. And the adversity will help him get stronger and hopefully he comes back and it doesn't happen again. The Jets went defense with their first two picks as they landed a pair of safeties in LSU's Jamal Adams and Florida's Marcus Maye. Read More

Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen wins opening stage of Tour de Yorkshire

Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen wins opening stage of Tour de Yorkshire

We knew the finish and we watched the girls race (won by Lizzie Deignan) and we planned to come late on the little dip and we did exactly that but the bunch came by and we got blocked in traffic and that was it. Meanwhile, Australian Caleb Ewan - of Orica-Scott - took over as race leader after following Bouhanni over the line. With time bonuses applied, Ewan leads overall by two seconds from Bouhanni and Groenewegen, with Bike Channel Canyon's Chris Opie fourth at eight seconds alongside ... Read More

Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly is 'Mr. Irrelevant' for 2017

Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly is 'Mr. Irrelevant' for 2017

In his junior season, he was a prolific passer, registering 4,042 yards passing with 31 touchdowns and 13 interceptions to go with 500 yards rushing and 10 rushing touchdowns en route to being named MVP of the Sugar Bowl. That's how I felt watching the sixth round, too, Chad. Kelly will get to take part in Irrelevant Week, a one-week celebration created by former National Football League wide receiver Paul Salata for the last pick in each year's draft. Read More

Puck punch flattens Blue Jackets player in National Hockey League playoffs loss

Pittsburgh leads the first-round series 3-0. Werenski was injured in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to Pittsburgh, which gave the Penguins a commanding 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference first-round series. That being said, the first two periods of each game is where he has shined the most. The Blue Jackets got a goal from Karlsson 27 seconds into the third that seemed to pump them up again. Read More

Wenger is confident Alexis Sanchez will sign a new deal

The final will kick off at 5:30 p.m. BST on May 27, with Arsenal looking for their third FA Cup in four years and Premier League leaders Chelsea possibly set to be in contention to complete the domestic Double. "Koscielny has a knee problem but I don't know (how serious it is)", Wenger said. Leicester threw men forward in search of an equalizer late on and the tension nearly spilled over when Christian Fuchs launched a throw-in directly at Alexis Sanchez's head. Read More

Mourinho just getting started at Man United

Asked if Paul Pogba or Ander Herrera would be fit, he told a news conference: "Paul, no. Herrera, yes". Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo are both absent thanks to cruciate ligament injuries and a real blow came on Wednesday when Jose Mourinho revealed Paul Pogba will miss the game as well through injury to join Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Juan Mata on the sidelines.

NFL Draft Experience Now Open To Fans

The selection was announced from the stage constructed on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Barnett gives the Eagles a strong edge rusher. "And I showed him a piece of paper that I had written down his name". Speaking to ESPN's Matt Bowen in April, Jones said he would be back on the field in six months, as doctors told his camp that he'll be able to play "by the end of October at the latest". Read More

Spurs advance: San Antonio beats Grizzlies 103-96 in Game 6

Spurs advance: San Antonio beats Grizzlies 103-96 in Game 6

The Spurs crashed the offensive glass all night, winning the battle 16-7. "It's huge for us", Spurs guard Tony Parker said . His stat line wasn't that impressive, but you really had to watch the game to understand. The 34-year-old Parker was aggressive when flash-doubled while dribbling off high screens. What also makes James' defense as risky than Leonard's is that after steals or blocks, James is far more likely to convert the turnovers into fast break points on the other end. Read More

Newey working 'night and day' on Red Bull upgrade

Newey working 'night and day' on Red Bull upgrade

Red Bull continued to struggle to switch on the ultra-soft tyre, the softest compound in Pirelli's range of tyres this weekend. But if you're comparing to Ferrari and Mercedes, unfortunately they've got a bit of everything on us. "It's not a nice thing to know, but last year I was about 1.7 seconds off pole, and I'm about 1.8 seconds off pole this year, and in two races we were on pole position". Read More

Hamilton: Mercedes not as quick as we need to be

But it is Vettel, the four-time champion, who will now be the favourite to capture his first pole position of the year in qualifying later on Saturday. Kevin Magnussen's Haas was less than half a tenth further back in 14th, well clear of the underpowered McLaren-Honda of Fernando Alonso, who maintained his 100% record of getting McLaren-Honda into Q2 at every race so far this season.

Vettel keeps Ferrari on top in final Russian practice

Vettel, a victor in two of the first three races this term, produced a fastest lap of one minute and 33.194 seconds in Sochi on Saturday to top qualifying for the first time since the 2015 Singapore GP. It's a team effort and a great result for us to have both cars on the front row. "'But it's a very good result and I'm sure everyone is very happy and very proud, so we'll enjoy that, but in a couple of hours obviously start focusing on the race". Read More

City and Guardiola have failed to meet expectations

City and Guardiola have failed to meet expectations

With plenty still to play for at Spurs, Arsenal and United, the upcoming showdowns will be highly anticipated. It means two potential routes remain open to qualify for next season's Champions League. "To be honest we played well but when you don't win it is hard to take it". "City will finish top four", Mourinho said. As Mourinho's only fit first-choice central defender is Eric Bailly, the 19-year-old Axel Tuanzebe may be given a chance. Read More

Bears trade up to draft North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky

It's the first time Kansas City took a quarterback in the first round since Penn State's Todd Blackledge in 1983 ahead of Dan Marino and Jim Kelly. Cleveland went 1-15 last season and has holes everywhere. Their veteran starter has two years remaining on his contract, though Smith becomes low-cost to release after next season if Mahomes comes along quickly. Read More

Blues get faceoff leader back with Paul Stastny

Wednesday at Scottrade Center. On the go-ahead goal, Jaden Schwartz led the rush and initially tried to pass it to Joel Edmundson, but the pass was off the mark and Edmundson kicked it right to Tarasenko's stick. "I don't think any of us past year against San Jose really had chances". "We were bound to lose a game". "He's one of those guys that he's a streaky goalie at the same time, so I think we have to do a good job of getting traffic and getting in there", Hutton said. Read More

Sharapova wins again, reaches semifinals at Porsche GP

Sharapova wins again, reaches semifinals at Porsche GP

Sharapova is yet to drop a set in Stuttgart following her return from a 15-month doping ban and the ranking points she has collected mean she is already close to rejoining the top 250 on Monday. But when I come off the court, I realise how much I'm enjoying being in those moments. So it's safe to say the Russian has been hit with heavy criticism of late, however, it looks like she has risen above it after claiming three scalps since her return on Wednesday. Read More

Burnley - Premier League Football - 29 April 2017

But Allardyce is keen to stress to his in-form stars that the Clarets will pose a different threat to that which they have overcome of late, with Palace sat on 38 points ahead of the Selhurst Park clash. We have just added 19 points out of the last 17 games, on a "bad run". "You have to remember that at the start of the season nobody gave us a chance; pundits, columnists, no-one". Read More
