Undefeated champ Andre Ward retires, desire no longer there

em>By Josh Dubow, Associated Press /em> OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Andre Ward decided to end his career on top. Ward announced Thursday he is retiring from boxing because he no longer has the desire to fight, leaving the sport at age 33 with an undefeated record and the light heavyweight championship. Ward released a statement on his website titled 'Mission Accomplished ' thanking those who helped him throughout his career and explaining his reasons for his retirement. 'I want to be clear — I am leaving because my body can no longer put up with the rigors of the sport and therefore my desire to fight is no longer there,' he wrote. 'If I cannot give my family, my team, and the fans everything that I have, then I should no longer be fighting.' Ward is currently rated the best 'pound for pound' boxer by Ring Magazine. But in an interview with ESPN's First Take, he said he no longer wants to do the work leading to his bouts. 'People see what I do fight night, they see under the lights, but they don't see the toil, they don't see the grind, they don't see just the pain, the physical pain that you go through, not just in the fights, but to prepare and to get ready for those battles,' he said. 'I felt the physicality of the sport, not just in the ring stuff, but the training and the preparation, start to take its toll on me for the last two or three years and I bit down and continued to push through and at this point, it's time and I know it's time.' Ward declined other interview requests through his publicist, saying he wanted to celebrate his retirement with family and friends. Ward has won all 32 of his fights, with 16 knockouts. He won the Olympic gold medal as a light heavyweight in 2004. Ward won the WBA super middleweight title in 2009 when he defeated Mikkel Kessler and unified that title in 2011 when he beat Carl Froch in the Super Six super middleweight tournament final. Ward then battled shoulder problems that kept him out of the ring and later went 19 months without a fight because of a protracted legal dispute with his former promoter, the late Dan Goosen. Ward got back in the ring in June 2015. He won the light heavyweight title in a disputed, unanimous decision against Sergey Kovalev in November 2016, taking all three belts in the process. Ward then beat Kovalev more decidedly in a rematch in June that was stopped in the eighth round. Kovalev said Ward's retirement will be good for boxing because it will allow 'good and strong' fighters to compete for the vacated titles. He also said through his Main Events promoter that he doesn't concern himself with the possibility that Ward's retirement won't stick. 'I don't think about him at all because I'm looking forward (to reaching) my goals,' he said, adding that his last two fights are 'history' and 'I forgot it already.' He said he would have been happy to get a third fight, but not if he had to wait and take lesser bouts in the interim. Kovalev does wonder if Ward and his handlers are playing psychological games. 'They did before second rematch,' he said. 'I don't know. I don't care at all.' HBO said Ward will work as an analyst on its boxing broadcasts. 'Andre Ward ends his boxing career as he only knew how to live it — as a champion at the top,' HBO executive vice president Peter Nelson said. 'To watch Ward was to marvel at constant mastery of craft in the ring, to say nothing of his being the consummate role model outside it. The Hall of Fame will be lucky to have him.'   .....»»

Phelps has 'no desire' to return to swimming

em>By Paul Newberry, Associated Press /em> Michael Phelps wondered if watching others compete at the world championships would pique his desire for another comeback. Nope. Phelps said Tuesday he has 'no desire' to return to competitive swimming, but he is eager to stay involved with the sport and cheer on those who follow in his enormous wake. In an interview with The Associated Press while promoting a healthy pet food campaign, Phelps said he is excited about having his second child and building a life beyond swimming. 'For me, it's about being happy where I am and happy where my family is,' Phelps said. 'We have more goals we want to accomplish outside the sport.' It was around this time four years ago when Phelps got serious about ending his first retirement, but he now seems content with his decision to step away again after the Rio Olympics. His wife, Nicole, is about four months pregnant. The couple already have a 16-month-old son, Boomer. 'I've got no desire — no desire — to come back,' the 32-year-old Phelps said flatly. Phelps has attended a handful of swimming meets since the Rio Games, where the winningest athlete in Olympic history added to his already massive career haul by claiming five gold medals plus a silver . A few months ago, he conceded to the AP that he wasn't sure how he would feel about a possible comeback after watching the worlds in Budapest, Hungary. 'We'll see if I get that itch,' he said in April . Turns out, it had no impact. Phelps said the second-biggest meet after the Olympics 'truly didn't kick anything off or spike any more interest in coming out of retirement again.' He is excited to follow the development of his heir apparent, Caeleb Dressel, who emerged as the sport's newest star by winning seven gold medals at Budapest . The 21-year-old Floridian joined Phelps and Mark Spitz as the only swimmers to accomplish that feat at a major international meet. 'I'm happy Caeleb decided to go off this year instead of last year,' quipped Phelps, who won 23 golds and 28 medals overall in his Olympic career. 'I'm kind of happy to see him swimming so well when I'm not there.' While he still travels extensively for his many sponsors, Phelps said he's much more involved in his wife's second pregnancy than he was before Boomer's birth, when he was consumed by full-scale training for the Olympics. 'It's definitely different going through it again,' he said. Boomer, meanwhile, is a chip off the old block. 'He skipped the walking part and went right to running,' Phelps said, chuckling. 'He just scoots around the house. It's funny when we get him in the pool. He basically just splashes around the whole time. He's literally nonstop. As soon as he wakes up from a nap or his night's sleep, he's just go, go, go. There's no time for slow moving in our family. He likes to go fast. I guess that's a good thing.' Boomer is even starting to show some good form in the pool. His mom and Phelps' longtime coach, Bob Bowman, have detected a bit of the stroke that was his father's strongest. 'Nicole and Bob both say he's got a good butterfly technique that he's working on,' Phelps said. 'I guess he's seen his dad doing it a couple of times and kind of picks it up. He's also now in a stage where it's like all five senses are coming together. He feels everything, recognizes everything. It's really fun to watch, as a dad, just watching these transitions in his life.' In his latest business endeavor, Phelps is spearheading a marketing campaign for Nulo Pet Food , which he describes as a healthy alternative for dogs and cats. He's an investor in the company and accompanied in ads by his French bulldogs, Juno and Legend. 'Our bodies are like a high-performance car. You have to make sure you're putting the correct fuel in your body,' Phelps said. 'We obviously treat our pets like human beings. I'd like my animals to be fed in the right way, with good nutrition and healthy foods. If we can do that with a company that's putting good, natural ingredients into a pet food, it makes sense for me with what I'm doing in my own life. It's something that goes hand in hand.' With Dressel and Katie Ledecky now leading the American team, the U.S. is expected to remain the world's dominant swimming country heading into the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Even without Phelps. 'It's time to kind of move on,' he said, 'and watch other people come into their own.' .....»»

Austin going all out on Blatche if showdown takes place in Champions Cup

As of right now, Isaiah Austin is not really looking to replace Andray Blatche as the naturalized center of Gilas Pilipinas. At least not yet. But with the upcoming FIBA Asia Champions Cup, there's a very real possibilty that the Philippines will see a showdown between Blatche and Austin. On one corner is the current naturalized center for Gilas and on the other side is the young beast many are seeing as the next in line to man the middle for Team Philippines. We don't know what Blatche thinks but if and when the mega showdown happens, Austin is going to take it to Andray. 'I'm excited, it's always exciting to be able to go against great competition,' the 23-year-old former Baylor star said. 'But as a basketball player, I was thought to nevery back down from anybody. When it comes time for us to match up, I'm gonna play hard, that's all I can do,' he added. The Austin-led Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas is in Group A while defending champion China Kashgar, bannered by Andray Blatche, is in Group B.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Young Jonas Sultan excited for world title shot, not taking champion Ancajas lightly

Heading into his world title eliminator bout against former two-division world champion John Riel Casimero at Pinoy Pride 42 in Cebu, it would seem as though the odds were stacked against young ALA Boxing rising star Jonas Sultan.  At just 13-3 in his young career, the 25-year old was facing a more experienced, more seasoned fighter in Casimero, who was coming in at 24-2.  Prior to moving up to super-flyweight, Casimero ruled the IBF's flyweight division.  On fight night however, Sultan stepped up to the challenge and appeared to be a step ahead of Casimero throughout the fight, eventually earning a unanimous decision nod and snapping Casimero's three-fight winning streak.  More importantly, it gives Sultan a shot at the IBF super-flyweight world championship, currently held by Jerwin Ancajas, the lone world champion under Manny Pacquiao's MP Promotions.  Sultan admits that his win over Casimero however, was no walk in the park.  'Sobrang saya ko kasi nanalo ako sa laban namin ni Casimero. Mahirap siyang kalabanin, malakas pa din.' Sultan told ABS-CBN Sports.  The reigning IBF Inter-Continental super-flyweight champion is fully aware of what's next.  'Nung nanalo ako, sabi ko world championship na sunod.' The Zamboanga del Norte native knows that opportunities like this don't come around too often, especially for someone who's only 17 fights into his career.  'Excited na ako, kasi bihira lang yung ganun, yung medyo bago-bago ka pa lang, pero may laban ka na para sa world championship, pero para sa akin, talagang lalaban ako.' It's a hefty challenge for someone who hasn't even headlined a Pinoy Pride card in his career.  With a world title opportunity however, this could be his chance to do so.  'Yun yung pangarap ko,' Sultan said of the opportunity.  And while the kid is on Cloud 9 right now, he hasn't lost sight of the fact that reigning champ Ancajas is a different beast.  Boasting a 27-1 professional record, Ancajas has successfully defended the IBF super-flyweight crown twice, both by stoppage.  'Dapat titindihan ko pa yung training ko, kasi si Jerwin Ancajas, yung mga nakakalaban niya malalakas.' No date has been set yet for the historic All-Filipino world title bout. .....»»

PHI begins 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games campaign

ASHGABAT, Turkmenistan – The Philippine begins its campaign as Filipino wrestlers and jiu-jitsu grapplers start their quest for gold medals in the 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) at the Ashgabat Olympic Stadium here. Three-time International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation World Championship champion Margarita “Meggie” Ochoa leads the campaign of the Filipinos in this 5th edition of AIMAG. “Halos kilala ko lahat ng mga makaka-laban ko, mga nakalaban ko na din before,” said the 5-foot-1 Ochoa, who also won a gold medal in the Asian Beach Games a year back in Danang, Vietnam. “Ready naman tayo kasi last time I competed was in the Asian Jiu-Jitsu Championship, that was in August,” added Ochoa, 27, who will fight in her regular category of 45kg division. Also expected to deliver a medal for the Philippines is Annie Ramirez, a two–time gold medal winner in the Asian Beach Games. She recently won two gold medals in the Asian Jiu-Jitsu Championship in Hanoi, Vietnam. “I think maganda naman, may laban tayo and kaya nating makakuha ng gold. Sana maging ok ang lahat, walang injuries, and makapag-isip ng tama pag-dating sa araw ng laban,” Ramirez said. “During my last fight in Hanoi, I won two gold medals there, open category and sa 55kg division ko. At least may konting advantage na ako sa mga makakalaban kung sila pa din yung mga sasali dito,” added Ramirez. Eight other jiu-jitsu fighters will participate in the tournament. They are Hansel Terence Co (77kg), Gian Taylor Dee (56kg), Mark Alexander Lim (69kg), Golbert Ambao (94kg), Apryl Eppinger (62kg), Lou-Ann Jindani (55kg) and Carolina Pajaron (49kg). The drawing lots will be held Friday evening. The traditional wrestling will likewise start today, as five fighters will try to make a podium finish. These are Alvin Lobregito (freestyle 57kg), Jefferson Manato (classic style 57kg), Johnny Morte (freestyle 68kg), Grace Loberanes (freestyle 52kg) and Noemi Tenner (freestyle 58kg). In the flag raising ceremony at the Village Flag Plaza, national team Chef de Mission Monsour del Rosario said there is a strong chance for the team to capture medals in jujitsu and wrestling. “Everything is on track. Looks like the athletes are in good spirits last night I checked them,” said the former Olympian turned actor who is now a congressman representing the 1st district of Makati City. “ “Excited sila… ang pinagdadasal ko na lang ang draw lots ng mga fighters (I hope) hindi agad matapat sa mga World Champions at Asian Champions na malalakas na teams. Sana matapat muna medyo kaya nila tapos habang papunta ng quarterfinals, semifinals at finals doon na nila makakatapat yung mga World and Asian champions para may chance tayo mag-medalya,” he added. The national team will see action in 17 sports, including Electronic Sports. A total of 116 athletes will attend the opening ceremony scheduled Sunday at the 35,000-seater Ashgabat Olympic Stadium. .....»»

ISIS militants, hostages escape Marawi mosque

MARAWI CITY – Dozens of local ISIS militants and their hostages managed to escape undetected from a mosque they used to attack security forces in the besieged city of Marawi.  The daring escape was only discovered after troops managed to advance and eventually recaptured the mosque from militants on Thursday hours before President Rodrigo Duterte’s visit to Marawi. The military trumpeted the “liberation” of the mosque, but it did not say how ISIS fighters and their captives managed to escape from thousands of troops who surrounded Marawi, and spy planes and drones monitoring the siege since May 23.  The fate of the hostages, including a Catholic priest and church workers, remains unknown.  Duterte, wearing a Kevlar helmet and a bullet-proof vest, inspected troops in the battlefront and spoke to them. “The President also congratulated the troops for defending Marawi from terror elements and for successfully retaking the Islamic Center yesterday, a structure that was maintained as the Daesh-inspired terrorist group's command and control for the longest time before it was retaken,” said Army Captain Jo-ann Petinglay, a spokeswoman for the Western Mindanao Command.  It was his 3rd visit to Marawi since the fighting began when militants occupied the city in an effort to put up an Islamic province in the restive region. Security officials also briefed Duterte on the progress of the military operations against the militants.  In his talk with the soldiers, Duterte assured his full support to the military and police forces fighting ISIS. “I would like to reiterate this, I will never abandon you as long as you are doing the right thing. This would include fighting against the terrorists groups, the drug lords or the common criminals as long as you are doing your sworn duty to enforce the law and protect the republic. Let me emphasize however that you must do your job in accordance with the law,” he said.  Duterte was accompanied by National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon, Defense Undersecretary Cesar Yano, Armed Forces Chief of Staff General Eduardo Ano and Army Chief Lieutenant General Glorioso Miranda.  Oust Duterte  His visit to the battlefield came days after disgruntled soldiers and policemen who are members of a shadowy group called Patriotic and Democratic Movement or PADEM called for the ouster of Duterte. They accused Duterte of treating the military and police as his private armies and for betraying and violating public trust and cited 10 reasons to call for his ouster. The group also urged Filipinos to join PADEM in condemning and fighting Duterte and his administration and to stage mass actions and demand the President’s ouster. In a manifesto, Antonio Bonifacio, who claimed to be PADEM’s spokesman, called on members of the military and police to also join the people in demanding Duterte’s resignation and also his administration. It said the group is working for the withdrawal military and police support for Duterte.  “We urge all Filipinos as individuals and as groups in whatever social sector, field, institution or organization to exercise their right of assembly and expression to undertake mass actions demanding the ouster of Duterte and his administration. We call on our fellow officers and members of the AFP and the PNP to join the people in demanding the resignation or ouster of Duterte and his administration.” “We pledge to work for the withdrawal of military and police support for Duterte and his administration in conjunction with mass mobilization of the Filipino people in millions to manifest their demand for the resignation or ouster of Duterte and his administration. Upon the change of administration, we pledge to follow the principle of civilian supremacy and support a new civilian administration, in accordance with the 1987 Constitution and the rule of law,” the manifesto, released by Bonifacio – believed to be a nom de guerre – said. PADEM also condemned and holds accountable for gross crimes in betrayal of public trust and in violation of national sovereignty and democratic rights of the Filipino people. It cited the following reasons as alleged crimes of Duterte:   Treating the AFP and the PNP as these were his private armies and practising favoritism and violating professional and service standards in the promotion and assignment of officers; Corrupting the PNP and the AFP with a system of monetary awards for the extrajudicial killing of alleged illegal drug users and of NPA suspects; Condoning and protecting top-level illegal drug lords; Emboldening/inciting police officers to engage in extrajudicial killings of poor suspected illegal drug users and pushers by publicly telling officers to plant evidence and by guaranteeing their pardon and promotion in case of conviction; Aggravating corruption in government and criminality through the collusion of Duterte trustees and crime syndicates; Allowing China to occupy maritime features in the West Philippine Sea and to violate Philippine sovereign rights upheld by decision of the Arbitral Tribunal in accordance with the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea; Bungling the operations in Marawi City and indiscriminately destroying lives and property through aerial bombings, artillery and mortar; Favoring certain Chinese businessmen and Duterte relatives and cronies in the award of projected infrastructure projects using loans from China; Betraying the sovereign rights of the Filipino people by making the Philippines a debt vassal of China and offering to China the oil and gas resources under the West Philippine Sea as collateral for Chinese loans; and Seeking to replace the partnership with the United States in matters [&'].....»»

NASA’s first mission to the star set for 2018 – CNN News

Wearing a nearly 5-inch coat of carbon-composite solar shields, NASA's Parker Solar Probe will explore the sun's atmosphere in a mission that begins in the summer of 2018. It's not a journey that any human can make, so NASA is sending a roughly 10-foot-high probe on the historic mission that will put it closer to the sun than any spacecraft has ever reached before. The probe will have to withstand heat and radiation never before experienced by any spacecraft, but the specially designed mission will also address questions that couldn't be answered before. Understanding the sun in greater detail can also shed light on Earth and its place in the solar system, researchers said. This is NASA's first mission to the sun and its outermost atmosphere, called the corona. On Wednesday, the craft &'8212; initially called the Solar Probe Plus &'8212; was renamed the Parker Solar Probe in honor of astrophysicist Eugene Parker. &'8220;This is the first time NASA has named a spacecraft for a living individual,&'8221; said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for the agency's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. &'8220;It's a testament to the importance of his body of work, founding a new field of science that also inspired my own research and many important science questions NASA continues to study and further understand every day. I'm very excited to be personally involved honoring a great man and his unprecedented legacy.&'8221; Parker published research predicting the existence of solar wind in 1958, when he was a young professor at the University of Chicago's Enrico Fermi institute. At the time, astronomers believed that the space between planets was a vacuum. Parker's first paper was rejected, but it was saved by a colleague, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, an astrophysicist who would be awarded the 1983 Nobel Prize for Physics. Less than two years after Parker's paper was published, his theory of solar wind was confirmed by satellite observations. His work revolutionized our understanding of the sun and interplanetary space. Parker is now the S. Chandrasekhar Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus at the University of Chicago. Zurbuchen and Nicola Fox, the mission project scientist for Parker Solar Probe, also presented Parker with the first scale model of the probe and NASA's distinguished public service medal. &'8220;I'm greatly honored to be associated with such a heroic scientific space mission,&'8221; Parker said. The Parker Solar Probe will carry a chip with photos of Parker and his revolutionary paper, as well as a plate carrying whatever inscription Parker wishes to provide &'8212; his message to the sun. The probe will eventually orbit within 3.7 million miles of the sun's surface. The observations and data could provide insight about the physics of stars, change what we know about the mysterious corona, increase understanding of solar wind and help improve forecasting of major space weather events. Those events can impact satellites and astronauts as well as the Earth &'8212; including the power grid and radiation exposure on airline flights, NASA said. The mission's objectives include &'8220;tracing the flow of energy that heats and accelerates the sun's corona and solar wind, determining the structure and dynamics of the plasma and magnetic fields at the sources of the solar wind and explore mechanisms that accelerate and transport energetic particles.&'8221; &'8220;We've been inside the orbit of Mercury and done amazing things, but until you go and touch the sun, you can't answer these questions,&'8221; Fox said. &'8220;Why has it taken us 60 years? The materials didn't exist to allow us to do it. We had to make a heat shield, and we love it. Something that can withstand the extreme hot and cold temperature shifts of its 24 orbits is revolutionary.&'8221; Solar wind is the flow of charged gases from the sun that is present in most of the solar system. That wind screams past Earth at a million miles per hour, and disturbances of the solar wind cause disruptive space weather that impacts our planet. Space weather may not sound like something that concerns Earth, but surveys by the National Academy of Sciences have estimated that a solar event without warning could cause $2 trillion in damage in the United States and leave parts of the country without power for a year. In order to reach an orbit around the sun, the Parker Solar Probe will take seven flybys of Venus that will essentially give the probe a gravity assist, shrinking its orbit around the sun over the course of nearly seven years. The probe will eventually be closer to the sun than Mercury. It will be close enough to watch solar wind whip up from subsonic to supersonic. When closest to the sun, the probe's 4½-inch-thick carbon-composite solar shields will have to withstand temperatures close to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit. Due to its design, the inside of the spacecraft and its instruments will remain at a comfortable room temperature. The probe will reach a speed of 450,000 mph around the sun. On Earth, this speed would enable someone to get from Philadelphia to Washington in one second, the agency said. The mission will also pass through the origin of the solar particles with the highest energy. The mission is scheduled to end in June 2025. &'8220;The solar probe is going to a region of space that has never been explored before,&'8221; Parker said. &'8220;It's very exciting that we'll finally get a look. One would like to have some more detailed measurements of [&'].....»»
