Boxing: Filipino-Emirati boxer Fahad Al Bloushi hopes to make Pinoy community proud at Rotunda Rumble 2 in Dubai

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Lightweight prospect Fahad Al Bloushi is in high spirits ahead of his highly-awaited professional debut, determined to make not only the whole Emirati nation proud but the sizeable Filipino community here as well. After all, the 23-year-old Dubai-based starlet is proud of his Filipino heritage as he makes his pro bow on Friday’s huge ‘Rotunda Rumble 2’ event, made possible by D4G Promotions in association with Round 10 Boxing Club and MTK Global at Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai. “I really worked hard for this, and I hope to make the Filipino community proud too,” said Al Bloushi, whose mother Winona Bicodo, traces her roots to Dingle in the province of Iloilo, one of the more popular tourist destinations in central Philippines. An accomplished amateur who only took the sport seriously in 2015 and represented United Arab Emirates in the Indonesia Asian Games the following year, Al Bloushi said he has embraced his Filipino lineage with open arms. “I’ve been to the Philippines four times. The first time I went was when I was eight years old. The last time was in 2015. I love it there, they are lovely people,” he said, his eyes glowing while reminiscing wonderful memories. One of three active UAE pro boxers aside from the popular Majid Al Naqbi and fellow debutant Sultan Al-Nuaimi, Al Bloushi has vowed to put his best foot forward in the stacked event headlined by world-ranked star Jack Catterall and aired live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and on iFL TV worldwide. “I’m excited to get in that ring,” Al Bloushi said. “I’m thankful that I’m turning pro the right way which is in my hometown. I’m ready to put on a show.” Also in action on the bill are fast-rising British phenom Thomas Patrick Ward, Pakistani hero Muhammad Waseem, Indian star Vijender Singh, Kazakhstan sensation Abilkhaiyr Shegaliyev and Irish favorite Rohan Date in what can be considered as a global boxing party in the Middle East. Al Bloushi, however, is keen on getting a fair share of the spotlight. “My short term goal is to be the first Emirati to win a world title belt. For the long term? To be undisputed in two weight divisions,” he concluded......»»

Arsenal captain Xhaka enraged; Liverpool beats Tottenham

LONDON (AP) — Arsenal and Tottenham scored early before it all started to unravel for the north London clubs in the Premier League on Sunday. Arsenal established a two-goal lead over Crystal Palace before capitulating, conceding twice and seeing its captain appearing to storm off in anger in a 2-2 draw. Tottenham took a shock lead at Anfield but there would be no first away win since January as unbeaten Liverpool fought back to win 2-1 and restore its six-point lead over champion Manchester City at the top. But Manchester United did win on the road for the first time in the league since February, overcoming Norwich 3-1. CAPTAIN RAGES The decision by Arsenal manager Unai Emery to withdraw captain Granit Xhaka in the second half was initially greeted by large cheers. They turned to jeers as Xhaka took his time to leave the field despite the score being level. Xhaka reacted by waving his arms, cupping his ears and seemingly mouthing a profanity twice as he pushed away a handshake from Emery. Xhaka took off his shirt and headed straight down the tunnel. "He's wrong but we are going to speak inside about that situation," Emery told the BBC. "I want to be calm but, really, he was wrong in this action." It had started so well, with goals in the opening nine minutes. Arsenal defensive duo Sokratis Papastathopoulos and David Luiz scored inside 106 seconds. But it started to go wrong in the 32nd minute when Luka Milivojevic netted a penalty that was awarded after a VAR review. Palace winger Wilfried Zaha had initially been booked for diving. "I didn't understand the referee and VAR reaction," Emery said. "For me there is no confusion. It is not a good decision." Jordan Ayew's fourth goal in eight games brought Palace level before further VAR drama as Sokratis was denied a late winner when the review spotted a foul by Calum Chambers moments earlier. LIVERPOOL RECOVERY Liverpool's breakthrough on its way to a sixth European Cup by beating Tottenham in June came when Mousa Sissoko handled after 22 seconds to concede a penalty. Redemption came after 148 days for the French midfielder, and almost as quickly. Sissoko launched a counterattack that was completed by Son Heung-min hitting the bar and Tottenham striker Harry Kane heading in the rebound after 47 seconds. But Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson volleyed in the equalizer seven minutes into the second half. And Mohamed Salah, who netted the early penalty in the Champions League final, was on target again for the spot after Serge Aurier fouled Sadio Mane. Tottenham was left with only 12 points from 10 points in Pochettino's worst start since taking charge in 2014. Liverpool, which was held by Manchester United last weekend, has 28 points from a possible 30 as it chases a first title since 1990. Juergen Klopp's side is six points ahead of Manchester City ahead of the second-place champions' visit to Anfield in two weeks. UNITED DOUBLE For the first time since the opening weekend victory over Chelsea, United scored more than once in a league game. United broke the deadlock through Scott McTominay's low drive and in the process became the first club to score 2,000 Premier League goals. The visitors were then awarded a penalty after a VAR review in the 28th minute, only for Tim Krul to save Marcus Rashford's effort, but the forward made up for it moments later to get his 50th United goal. United missed its second penalty before halftime when Anthony Martial was denied as Krul again guessed correctly to keep his side in the game. It was 3-0 in the 73rd as Martial made up for his penalty miss before Norwich pulled one back in the 88th through halftime substitute Onel Hernandez, who became the first Cuban goalscorer in Premier League history. NEWCASTLE DENIED WIN Wolverhampton, playing its 20th game of the season due to Europa League commitments, trailed to Jamaal Lascelles' first-half header for Newcastle. But the visitors dominated the second half and got their reward when Jonny leveled from close range in the 73rd minute after goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka palmed Matt Doherty's cross into his path. Newcastle had Sean Longstaff sent off in the 82nd for a challenge on Ruben Neves......»»

Goal transformed into art: Wenger lauds Giroud's 'scorpion'

ROB HARRIS, AP Global Soccer Writer br /> LONDON (AP) — With Alexis Sanchez's cross floating into the penalty area behind him, Olivier Giroud only had one choice: A back-heeled overhead flick. 'I was a bit lucky but it was the only thing I could do,' Giroud said. 'The ball was behind me and I tried to hit it with a back heel.' The ball hit the underside of the crossbar, came down and went over the line to produce one of the most exceptional goals witnessed by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. 'That could be remembered as the 'Giroud goal' that nobody forgets,' Wenger said after Arsenal's 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the English Premier League. 'Olivier transformed that goal into art,' Wenger added. 'Art because of the surprise, because the beauty of the movement and because the efficiency of the movement — the ball went in.' Giroud's previous touch before the 'scorpion strike' was also a back-heeled flick — the fourth touch in a flowing move launched by Arsenal inside its own half. Giroud squared to Granit Xhaka, who released Alex Iwobi to continue the advance before threading the ball through to Sanchez. Giroud then completed the counterattack in an exquisite manner in the 18th minute. 'It was an exceptional goal because it was at the end of a fantastic collective movement which our game is about,' Wenger said. 'After that it was a reflex. Any goal scorer is ready to take any part of his body to score a goal.' And when such a goal is executed so perfectly, it can light up a stadium — even on a rainy, freezing day. '(Giroud) brings the unexpected and we all come to football to get the unexpected,' Wenger said. Inevitably it overshadowed Iwobi's 56th-minute header which enabled the hosts to relax against a Palace side one place above the relegation zone. The victory took Arsenal above Manchester City into third place, nine points behind leader Chelsea. Tottenham also took advantage of City losing at Liverpool on Saturday by beating Watford to go into the fourth Champions League place. ___ WATFORD 1, TOTTENHAM 4 Harry Kane and Dele Alli both scored twice as Tottenham won a fourth consecutive match ahead of Wednesday's game against Chelsea. 'Chelsea arrive in very good shape - us too after the last few games,' Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said. 'It will be a very tough game and a great opportunity for us to try to stop them and try to reduce the gap. 'It's important, I think it's important for us and for the Premier League to try to win and try to stop them and reduce the gap.' Kane has now scored 59 goals in 100 league games, while Alli has 18 from 51 games. Younes Kaboul scored the stoppage-time consolation for Watford. ___ MONDAY'S GAMES In the packed festive program, 12 teams who played on Friday or Saturday are back in action on Monday. Liverpool can trim Chelsea's lead with a victory at relegation-threatened Sunderland, Manchester City hosts Burnley, Manchester United is at West Ham, Everton takes on Southampton, struggling champion Leicester plays at Middlesbrough and Hull faces West Bromwich Albion. .....»»

Chelsea gets 13th straight win, Liverpool maintains pursuit

ROB HARRIS, AP Global Soccer Writer br /> LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Chelsea fought off a dogged Stoke for a record-equaling 13th successive Premier League win as Liverpool maintained its pursuit of the leaders with a victory over Manchester City. Thanks to Saturday's 4-2 win, Chelsea will enter the second half of the season holding a six-point advantage over Liverpool in Antonio Conte's first season in charge of the London club. Juergen Klopp is also satisfied with Liverpool's progress as he looks to deliver the club's first title since 1990 by chasing down Chelsea over the next 19 games. 'Can you imagine how annoying it is when you have won 13 games in a row and another team is only six points behind,' Klopp said after Liverpool's 1-0 win over City. 'It is unbelievably difficult this league.' It was Pep Guardiola with little to celebrate on New Year's Eve as City slipped 10 points behind leader Chelsea. ___ CHELSEA 4, STOKE 2 Chelsea has emulated Arsenal's 2002 side by reeling off 13 wins in a row in the same season and it's thanks to Willian's double. Goals from Gary Cahill and Willian were canceled out by Stoke duo Bruno Martins Indi and Peter Crouch. When Willian put Chelsea in front for a third time in the 65th minute, Stoke could find no way back this time and Diego Costa added a fourth. 'When you win a lot there is a great danger to be satisfied, to be relaxed, to think, 'OK, but we won a lot in the past, now if arrive the draw, if we don't lose, if we don't win it's not important,'' Conte said. 'No. My players showed me great will, great will to fight, great will to win, great will to take this great achievement for us. I'm pleased for them and they deserved this. I'm their coach, but they deserved this.' ___ LIVERPOOL 1, MAN CITY 0 Georginio Wijnaldum's eighth-minute header secured Liverpool's fourth successive league win. Wijnaldum will take the plaudits for providing his second goal of the season, but Adam Lallana's contribution underscored how the midfielder is an essential ingredient in the title bid. It was Lallana's seventh assist of the season — he has also scored seven — that set up Wijnaldum. The Dutch midfielder climbed above City defender Aleksandar Kolarov to meet Lallana's well-placed cross from the left flank before planting a header beyond goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. 'It was kind of a wild game,' Klopp said. 'It was intense. It's not about having a philosophy, it's about adapting to the quality of the opponent and in this case we needed to defend from a compact formation.' ___ MAN UNITED 2, MIDDDLESBROUGH 1 Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba scored late goals in the 85th and 86th minutes to rescue a fifth successive win for Jose Mourinho's United. Grant Leadbitter had given Middlesbrough the lead but United gave the watching former manager Alex Ferguson the perfect 75th birthday gift. 'If the fans remember this not just for Sir Alex's birthday but for the kind of performance we had, I think it's a great tribute,' Mourinho said. United's in-house television channel received a shock after the game when nine-time Olympic Usain Bolt called in with his analysis. ___ LEICESTER 1, WEST HAM 0 Leicester moved six points clear of the relegation zone on Saturday after the struggling champions ended a three-game winless streak courtesy of Islam Slimani's header. Leicester moved up one spot to 15th. ___ SWANSEA 0, BOURNEMOUTH 3 Swansea's miserable form continued in the first game following Bob Bradley's firing. Benik Afobe and Ryan Fraser scored first-half goals and substitute Josh King completed a comfortable win for Bournemouth in the 88th minute. ___ SOUTHAMPTON 1, WEST BROM 2 In the final five minutes of the first half, Shane Long put Southampton ahead and Matt Phillips equalized. But Hal Robson-Kanu struck a second-half winner for West Bromwich Albion before Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk was sent off in the 88th for bringing down striker Salomon Rondon. ___ BURNLEY 4, SUNDERLAND 1 Burnley moved closer to mid-table safety powered by Andre Gray's hat trick against relegation-threatened Sunderland. ___ SUNDAY'S GAMES Fourth-placed Arsenal and fifth-placed Tottenham are both in action on New Year's Day. Tottenham is at Watford before Arsenal hosts Crystal Palace. .....»»

Chinese TV pulls Arsenal game coverage after Ozil criticism

By Rob Harris, Associated Press LONDON (AP) — Chinese television pulled coverage of Arsenal's Premier League match against Manchester City on Sunday after Mesut Ozil, a forward for the London club, criticized Beijing's brutal mass crackdown on ethnic Muslims in the country. China is the Premier League's most lucrative overseas broadcast market, with the rights sold for $700 million in a three-year deal that runs through 2022. But instead of the sports channel of Chinese state television showing Ozil featuring in Arsenal's 3-0 loss to City, it scheduled a delayed recording of Tottenham's 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton from earlier Sunday, according to information from the network. Streaming service PPTV.com also also canceled a feed of Arsenal's match which featured Ozil for almost an hour before he was substituted amid cheers and some jeers from his own fans. Ozil reacted by kicking his gloves on the touchline. “How he reacts is up to him and I'll deal with it,” interim Arsenal manager Freddie Ljungberg said. “We'll see what it means for the future but of course we want players to behave the right way.” Ljungberg would not discuss the specifics of Ozil's social media post from Friday which embroiled Arsenal in controversy in China. “The China thing is political," Ljungberg said, “and I’ll leave that to the club.” Arsenal used a post on Chinese social media network Weibo to dissociate itself from Ozil's action. “The content he expressed is entirely Ozil's personal opinion,” the north London club said. “As a football club, Arsenal always adheres to the principle of not being involved in politics.” Ozil added to condemnation of the detention of more than 1 million Uighurs and other minorities in so-called reeducation camps in China's northwestern region of Xinjiang, where they are subjected to political indoctrination, torture, beatings, and food deprivation, as well as denial of religious and linguistic freedom. A social media post from Ozil on Friday denounced China for burning Qurans, closing mosques and the killing of religious scholars. The Arsenal player complained that “Muslims stay quiet.” The Chinese Football Association expressed "great indignation and disappointment" at Ozil's comments, according to the Global Times newspaper published by the ruling Communist Party. China's government increasingly uses the threat of loss of access to the country's growing market as leverage to try to control what companies, universities and others say or do abroad about political issues. Arsenal will be hoping to avoid the backlash faced by the Houston Rockets earlier this year after the NBA team's general manager, Daryl Morey, tweeted support for anti-government protesters in Hong Kong, angering fans and officials in China. The tweet was deleted soon after it was posted, and Rockets owner and billionaire casino and restaurant owner Tilman Fertitta quickly rebuked his GM with a tweet saying that Morey does not speak for the team. The tweet caused some Chinese corporations to suspend relationships with the NBA. There is a growing a backlash in China against Ozil, who is Muslim of Turkish descent. “I think he is very wrong," lawyer Chen Wangshu said in Beijing. “As a sportsman, his most important responsibility is to do his job well, or to play good football.” In 2018, Ozil quit Germany’s national team following criticism over his decision to pose for a picture with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “He should be responsible for his career and refrain from making any comment raising and inciting anger in other nations," Chen said......»»

Benzema scores on last kick as Madrid draws 1-1 at Valencia

By Joseph Wilson, Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Karim Benzema scored with the final kick of the match to snatch a 1-1 draw for Real Madrid at Valencia in the Spanish league on Sunday. The draw wasted a chance for Madrid to take the outright lead. Second-place Madrid is level on points with league leader Barcelona before the teams meet in their "clásico" at Camp Nou on Wednesday. Thibaut Courtois played a key role in Benzema’s goal when the Belgium goalkeeper joined the attack on a corner kick five minutes into stoppage time. Thibaut rose to connect with a powerful header that his counterpart Jaume Domenech batted down into the crowded box, where it reached Benzema to smash it home. Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane rested holding midfielder Casemiro, who has four yellow cards and would have risked a suspension if he had played. Federico Valverde took the Brazilian’s place and had the game’s first scoring chance when he combined quick passes with Benzema before forcing Domenech to get low. Madrid was also without injured left backs Marcelo and Ferland Mendy, and Zidane had to employ the little-used Nacho Fernández, a central defender, on the left side of his back line. Madrid dominated the first half hour, working several flowing passing combinations to get into firing range. Valencia held firm thanks to holding midfielder Francis Coquelin until playmaker Dani Parejo shifted the action into a back-and-forth exchange. Rising talent Ferrán Torres had a great opportunity for the hosts just after halftime on the break, only for Courtois to close in fast and snuff out his attempt. Zidane sent on Gareth Bale and Vinicius Junior with just over 20 minutes left to take advantage of the open space. But it was Valencia that broke the stalemate when Daniel Wass spotted Carlos Soler on a team break. Soler coolly fired in Wass’ pass after teammates had drawn off the backtracking defenders to take the lead in the 78th. STREAK OVER Villarreal ended Sevilla’s eight-match unbeaten run in the Spanish league with a 2-1 away win, leaving the hosts four points behind Barcelona and Real Madrid. Sevilla had equalized and was pressing for a second when Villarreal got its second goal against the flow of play. Moi Gómez responded to Manuel Trigueros' run behind the defense with a lobbed pass that the midfielder controlled with his back to the net. Trigueros then stayed calm as goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik rushed off his line before passing for the unmarked Toko Ekambi to get the 74th-minute winner. Munir El Haddadi had canceled out Raúl Albiol’s header for Villarreal when the Sevilla forward rifled in a cross from Sergio Reguilón in the 61st. The win was Villarreal’s first in seven rounds. BACK IN FORM Getafe got goals from Ángel Rodríguez and Marc Cucurella to beat Valladolid 2-0 and move past Atlético Madrid into fourth place. After only one win in its first seven games, José Bordalás has got Getafe back to its good form from last season. The modest Madrid-based club is in contention for a Champions League berth after seven wins, two draws and one loss in its last 10 games. STILL WINLESS Last-place Espanyol remained without a victory at its stadium in nine games after a 2-2 draw against Real Betis. Betis got its opening goal from Borja Iglesias. Both Iglesias and Betis coach Joan “Rubi” Ferrer helped Espanyol earn a Europa League berth last season before changing clubs. Despite remaining five points from safety, Espanyol coach Pablo Machín was pleased by his team’s fightback from an early deficit to take a 2-1 lead before conceding a second goal to Betis’ Marc Bartra. “The point has more value than just a number. Today’s match shows us the way forward,” Machín said. RELEGATION FIGHT Ante Budimir scored for Mallorca with seven minutes left to earn a 2-2 draw at struggling Celta Vigo. The point allowed promoted Mallorca to stay just above Celta, which is in the drop zone......»»
