BOXING: Tyson Fury overcomes bloody cut over eye to beat Otto Wallin

By TIM DAHLBERG AP Boxing Writer LAS VEGAS (AP) — Blood was flowing down Tyson Fury's right cheek, and Otto Wallin was in his face. His scheduled rematch with Deontay Wilder suddenly in jeopardy, Fury needed to dig deep in a fight that wasn't supposed to be this hard. Fury did just that Saturday night, overcoming a bloody cut over his right eye to pound out a unanimous decision over his Swedish opponent and set up a lucrative heavyweight rematch with Deontay Wilder. Fury remained unbeaten in 29 fights and retained his claim to the lineal heavyweight title against a fighter who was little known but gave the big Englishman all he could handle. "I couldn't see out of my eye," Fury said. "I got cut over my eye and it changed the fight completely." With blood streaming down his face, Fury dominated from the middle rounds on in what was supposed to be little more than a tune up fight for his scheduled February rematch with Wilder. He was a 30-1 favorite at fight time, but after being cut in the third round had to reach deep to pull out the win. The three ringside judges had Fury winning by scores of 118-110, 117-111 and 116-112. The Associated Press had Fury winning 116-112. "It's all heart and determination," Fury said. "If I can keep going, I keep going. Otto is a great Swede, a Viking warrior." Fury was cut over his right eye in the third round, and it clearly bothered him as the fight went on. Blood flowed down the right side of his face and stained his trunks, and Fury kept wiping at the cut to try and keep the blood out of his eye. Referee Tony Weeks stopped the fight briefly in the sixth round for the ringside doctor to look at the eye. When the fight resumed, Fury fought at a quicker pace, seemingly realizing he might be running out of time. With renewed determination, he kept the pressure on Wallin the rest of the way to cement a huge payday against Wilder, who he fought to a draw in December. "Deontay Wilder, I want you next," Wilder said. "Now I'm going to go home and relax with the family." Wallin was still fighting hard in the final round, stunning Fury with a right to the head and chasing him around the ring in search of a knockdown that never came. Wallin, fighting for only the second time in the U.S., suffered his first defeat to fall to 20-1. "I did everything I could, I tried my best," Wallin said. "Tyson is a great fighter." Much of the fight was fought at close range, as the two men brawled on the inside. That was particularly true in the later rounds, as Fury (29-0-1) tried to land uppercuts and Wallin kept punching at Fury's bloody right eye. Fury earned a reported $12 million for the fight, part of a deal with promoter Bob Arum, who scooped him up after the Wilder fight. He will earn a lot more against Wilder, who still must beat Luis Ortiz in November to make the February rematch happen. Arum said Fury stepped up the pace after the cut over his eye was ruled to be from a punch. Had the fight been stopped early because of the cut Wallin would have won. "It was a courageous performance, a terrific fight," Arum said. "We knew the Swede wasn't a quitter. But Tyson's a real warrior. That's why they call him the Gypsy King." Fury came into the ring behind a mariachi band, wearing a pancho and a sombrero to stake his claim to fighting on Mexican Independence Day weekend in Las Vegas. But he quickly found himself in a rough and tumble battle with Wallin, who was plucked from obscurity to be Fury's opponent. Wallin had his moments in the fight, but never seemed to really hurt Fury. Fury started landing cleaner punches as the fight went into the later rounds and when he wasn't punching at Wallin he was leaning his 6-foot-9 256 1/2-pound fame on him. Wallin fought hard, but seemed to be tiring in the later rounds as Fury built up a lead on the scorecards. The fight drew a crowd of 8,249 to the Las Vegas Strip, many of them British fans who want to see Fury reclaim his place on top of the heavyweight division. Fury beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 to win the heavyweight titles, but was stripped of them after battling mental and drug abuse problems and not fighting for more than two years. Wallin was trying to score the biggest win for a Swedish heavyweight since Ingemar Johnansson defeated Floyd Patterson for the heavyweight title in 1959......»»

Félix sparks Atlético comeback; Bale scores 2, sent off

By Joseph Wilson, Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — João Félix scored his first Spanish league goal for Atlético Madrid to spark a 3-2 comeback win over Eibar as his team kept its perfect record on Sunday, while Gareth Bale struck twice to salvage a 2-2 draw for Real Madrid at Villarreal before being sent off. Atlético's 19-year-old Portugal forward swept in a pass from strike partner Diego Costa in the 27th minute at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium after the hosts had trailed by two goals. Atlético broke its club record to sign Félix from Benfica after triggering the 126 million euro (around $140 million) buyout clause in his contract this summer. It made most of that money back from the exit of Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona. Félix scored several impressive goals in an excellent preseason. Félix was very active in the first half which saw Atlético reeling from Eibar's strong start. He twice drew contact in the area that the referee said wasn't enough to consider a penalty, before fading as the match wore on. Víctor "Vitolo" Machín and Thomas Partey then came off the bench to score goals in the second half to complete the comeback. Diego Simeone's Atletico is the only team to take a maximum nine points in the first three rounds. Defending champion Barcelona has four points in eighth place while it waits for Lionel Messi to recover from injury and debut this season. Madrid has five points in fifth place after Bale twice erased Villarreal's lead to secure a 2-2 draw on the road. But the Wales winger then received back-to-back yellow cards in injury time for dangerous studs-first challenges and will miss the next match after the international break against Levante. Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane said he wasn't worried about his team's mediocre start to the season with just one win in three matches. "I think we did what we had to do, but we just didn't convert our chances," Zidane said. "But our way forward is this one. We can't complain about anything, except the first 15 minutes when we didn't start well." BIG COMEBACK Eibar went ahead on early goals by striker Charles and a deflected long strike by defender Artiz Arbilla. Vitolo scored to help win points for Atlético for a second straight week as a substitute. Partey finally put Atlético ahead in the 90th when he scrambled the ball past two defenders before knocking it through the legs of goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic. Simeone lauded the effort of his squad, which was overhauled this summer. "We have to remake this team. We want to win, win and win even more," Simeone said. "It is not easy when eight players leave and eight new players arrive for the team to still compete. We have to remain calm." MADRID SLIPS Gerard Moreno put Villarreal in front when he stole the ball from Sergio Ramos and set up Toko Ekambi to test goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. The Belgian blocked his strike, only for Moreno to rush in and finish off the rebound for his third goal in as many matches. Madrid pressed for an equalizer. Karim Benzema hit the post moments before Gareth Bale scored his first league goal of the season just before halftime at the end of a long team buildup that included a key pass by Marko Jovic. Madrid dominated the second half until Moi Gómez was in position to tap in a cross in the 74th following a shot by Moreno which was saved by Courtois. Bale got the final equalizer in the 86th after he took a pass from substitute Luka Modric, cut back inside and slotted a shot inside the near upright. OTHER RESULTS Dani Parejo converted two penalty kicks to give Valencia its first win of the season with a 2-0 win over promoted Mallorca. Promoted Granada won 3-0 at Espanyol for its first victory since returning to the top flight. Before the matches there was a minute's silence in tribute to 9-year-old Xana, the daughter of former Spain and Barcelona coach Luis Enrique. She died on Thursday from a type of bone cancer......»»

Barcelona s depleted squad held again in Spanish league

By Tales Azzoni, Associated Press MADRID (AP) — The absence of Lionel Messi and other injured players took its toll on Barcelona again. Barcelona's depleted squad stumbled in the Spanish league for the second time in three rounds on Saturday, drawing 2-2 at promoted Osasuna to enter the international break with only four points. Without Messi, Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembele because of injuries, the Catalan club let victory escape after conceding an 81st-minute equalizer from a penalty kick awarded because of a handball by defender Gerard Piqué. Messi, nursing a calf injury, is yet to play in the league this season, while Suárez and Dembele appeared only in the first match, when the two-time defending champion lost 1-0 at Athletic Bilbao for its first opening defeat in a decade. "We were terrible, they got the lead and we couldn't get near their area," Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said. "We played better in the second half and controlled the game, but we can't allow the game to get away from us like that." Midfielder Roberto Torres converted the late penalty for Osasuna. He had also found the net with a neat volley less than 10 minutes into the game to put the hosts ahead in Pamplona. Barcelona rallied with goals early in the second half by substitutes Ansu Fati and Arthur. Fati, a 16-year-old from Guinea-Bissau, scored his first goal with the senior team with a 51st-minute header. The speedy youngster had made his first-team debut in the 5-2 win over Real Betis at Camp Nou Stadium last weekend. Arthur got on the board with a well-placed shot into the far corner after cutting back to avoid two defenders in the 64th. Carles Pérez, a 21-year-old starting his second straight match due to Barcelona's injuries, had a great chance to give his team the lead in the 88th but lost control of the ball with only the goalkeeper to beat. Antoine Griezmann, who scored twice against Betis, had a lackluster performance on Saturday. "We are upset because we did the hard part, which was to come from behind to take the lead," Sergi Roberto said. "There is still a lot of league left. This should come as a message that we can't lose our focus." Osasuna remains unbeaten on its return to the first division after opening with a victory and two draws. It hasn't lost in 27 straight home games at El Sadar Stadium. "The team played well and in the end we were awarded the penalty," Torres said. "It was a fair result." Before the match there was a minute's silence in tribute to 9-year-old Xana, the daughter of former Spain and Barcelona coach Luis Enrique. She died on Thursday from a type of bone cancer. The silence will be repeated for all games in Spain this weekend. OTHER RESULTS Real Betis rebounded from two consecutive losses by coming from behind to defeat Leganés 2-1 at home with second-half goals by Lorenzo "Loren" Morón and Nabil Fekir. Getafe drew 1-1 with Alavés at home, while Levante defeated visiting Valladolid 2-0 with late goals by Sergio León and José Luis Morales. On Sunday, Atlético Madrid hosts Eibar and Real Madrid plays at Villarreal......»»
