PBA: Wright and Phoenix finally showing maturity

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal — Phoenix badly wanted maturity to come with their growth as a team, especially after the Fuel Masters somehow botched a twie-to-beat edge as the no. 2 seed to end last season in teh 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup. Early in the 2019 Philippine Cup, it appears that the Fuel Masters have found some of that maturity and are using that to win close games in the All-Filipino. Two games into the new season, Phoenix already has two overtimes. The Fuel Masters won both, allowing them to take over first place so far. “Phoenix of the past would’ve lost that game,” Wright said of their overtime win against TNT Saturday at the Ynares Center here. “After Pogoy hit that shot to tie the game, we would’ve crumbled by then. But we stuck together, we’re becoming more experience and we’re becoming more of a veteran team,” he added. Another great sign for Phoenix has been the team’s conditioning. Also known as a pressing team, the Fuel Masters have shown great endurance despite playing back-to-back overtime games. Phoenix certainly looked like the fresher team during the extra five minutes in separate wins against Meralco and TNT. “I’m just happy we won, because like you said, back-to-back overtime games. We really have to dig down deep in those kind of situations. I’m happy that we looked like the more conditioned team,” Wright said. “We came off an overtime game so we’re much more experienced in that department than they are. Luckily they’re tired towards the end of the game and they were starting to miss their shots. That’s just credit to our strength and conditioning coaches and how we run our practices. We thought we’re in really good shape today,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

ONE Championship: Edward Kelly gets stopped by Christian Lee in Jakarta

Filipino mixed martial artist Edward "The Ferocious" Kelly had no answer for the aggressiveness of Singaporean star Christian Lee, as he fell via TKO in the second round of their featherweight rematch at ONE: Eternal Glory, Saturday evening at the Istora Senayan in Jakarta, Indonesia.  Lee was the aggressor from the get-go as he immediatley looked to take Kelly down to the ground.  Kelly found himself trapped in a head in arm choke, and Lee used the lock to bring the fight to the ground.  Once there, it was all Lee, as the 20-year old former world title challenger transitioned into mount and eventually stopped Kelly via ground and pound in the first round.  A much different result from their first meeting wherein Lee was disqualified after a slam that left Kelly unable to continue was ruled illegal.  After the match, Lee called for another shot at Martin Nguyen and the ONE Featherweight World Championship.  The 34-year old Kelly drops to 11-6 in his career.  Lee meanwhile, improves to 11-3. .....»»

Current Government Shutdown Is Proof the Poor Can’t Rely on Federal Assistance

(THE CONVERSATION) I conduct a lot of in-depth interviews with people like a woman I'll call Angie as part of my work as a political scientist who studies poverty and public policy. When I asked the low-income mother of two, who works multiple jobs but still struggles to care for her family, about her experience with government assistance programs, she expressed dismay over benefit cuts due to the current government shutdown. "The people who make these rules ... they don't have any poor people in their family," she told me. "That is why they are willing to chop so many services for the poor." People living in poverty are now bracing for that kind of chopping as a result of the part...Keep on reading: Current Government Shutdown Is Proof the Poor Can’t Rely on Federal Assistance.....»»

ONE Championship: Edward Kelly wants to prove that he can beat Christian Lee

Team Lakay featherweight Edward "The Ferocious" Kelly is coming into his rematch against Singaporean star Christian "The Warrior" Lee at ONE: Eternal Glory in Jakarta, Indonesia with a hightened sense of motivation.  While indeed he was victorious in their first fight back in September of 2018, the win didn't come the way Kelly would have wanted.  After landing a slam that was deemed illegal, Lee was disqualified becase Kelly was unable to continue.  Now, the hard-hitting Pinoy striker wants, more than anything, to prove that he can beat Lee without the help of a disqualification.  "A win is a win, but parang walang tamang closure yung laban namin, so gusto ko ipakita na talagang ako dapat yung nanalo sa laban namin," Kelly told the media a day before his highly-anticipated rematch on Saturday night. "Of course, siya din may gustong patunayan, makikita na lang natin sa Saturday kung mag-eeffect yung good gameplan." While their first encounter lasted just a little over two minutes, Kelly says that he was able to take some things away from what he saw from Lee that night. The 34-year old hopes to be able to use those things in their do-over at the Istora Senayan.  "Yung napansin ko nung unang laban namin is aggressive siya, masyado siyang agresibo, and pasok ng pasok," Kelly explained. "Mabilis nga lang yung laban pero at least may nakuha ako na points sa aking pag-ensayo, sana magamit ko yun para ma-kontra yung pagka-explosive niya tsaka yung speed niya sa laban." The 20-year old Lee, who's a former title contender, is coming into this fight having bounced back with a first roudn win over Kazuki Tokudome. Kelly knows that right now, the kid's confidence is riding high, and is banking on the possibility that it's that same confidence that could lead to Lee's downfall.  "Alam ko naman na sky-high yung confidence niya, and I know na parang kokontrahin ko na lang sa isip ko, and yung confidence niya ay pwedeng magpa-talo sa kanya." While largely regarded as the underdog heading into the bout, Kelly says that he prefers to be in that position. That way, the victory becomes a bit sweeter.  "Mas gusto ko pa nga na underdog, kasi mas maganda yung pagka-panalo, yun yung nasa isip ko. Kailangan ko talaga kunin yung panalo, and gagawin ko lahat sa laban na ‘to," he expressed.    Edward Kelly and Christian Lee face off in a highly-anticipated rematch at ONE: Eternal Glory on Saturday, January 19th, 11:00 PM LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

ONE Championship: Surrounded by champions, Edward Kelly looking to get gold of his own

Filipino featherweight Edward "The Ferocious" Kelly is looking to begin his own path to gold this 2019.  After all, the 34-year old striker was witness to four of his Team Lakay teammates winning ONE World Championship gold in 2018, and he says that it's been nothing but a source of inspiration and motivation.  More so that at featherweight, Kelly is the lone warrior representing the La Trinidad, Benguet-based stable.  "Talagang nasa akin yun, kasi pine-pressure na nila ako na [featherweight na lang yung kulang]," Kelly shared with a chuckle.  "Tine-take ko as inspiration yun, talagang well-motivated ako na sige, ipapakita ko, gusto kong patunayan sa sarili ko, hoping na maipapakita ko lahat sa laban ko sa Sabado," he added.  Kelly's first challenge on the journey is none other than former title contender Christian Lee, who's hungry to get a win over Kelly after getting disqualified in their first encounter back in 2018. The Filipino believes that a win over Lee, one of the division's top contenders, would definitely put him in the conversation as well.  Adding even more motivation will be the fact that reigning ONE Strawweight World Champion Martin "The Situ-Asian" Nguyen is expected to be at the Istora Senayan in Jakarta to catch the Kelly-Lee rematch in person.  "Sumagi na rin yun sa isip ko, kasi pagkaka-alam ko, manonood si Martin Nguyen ng live sa laban namin, and if i win over Christian Lee, alam naman natin na siya yung bini-build up para lumaban sa championship," Kelly explained. "Kung matalo ko [siya], andun na rin ako, mga one to two fights, si Nguyen na." Before thinking about a title shot however, Kelly will need to get past Lee first, and it won't be an easy task.  While Lee has stated publicly that he's gunning for a knockout in the first round, Kelly maintains that it won't be as simple as the 20-year old Singaporean makes it out to be.  "Siyempre yun yung opinion niya as a fighter, pero siyempre hindi naman yun basta-basta. Tayo rin naman nag-ensayo, and willing akong ipakita kung ano yung pinag-ensayuhan ko." Kelly adds that he sees the fight going the distance, unless he can find a way to finish it earlier.  "Basa ko, aabot ng three rounds, kung hindi ko siya ma-knockout, kung hindi ko siya ma-tiempohan," he stated.    Edward Kelly and Christian Lee face off in a highly-anticipated rematch at ONE: Eternal Glory on Saturday, January 19th, 11:00 PM LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»
