Ancajas stakes IBF belt against Mexican Sept. 29

Jerwin Ancajas will defend his International Boxing Federation (IBF) super flyweight crown against dangerous Mexican Alejandro Santiago Barrios on Sept. 29 in California. According to his manager Joven Jimenez, the tentative venue is in Oakland, instead of Fresno, and will be shown on ESPN+ which also carried Manny Pacquiao's July 15 fight against Lucas Matthysse. It will be the sixth title defense for the 26-year-old Ancajas, whose latest conquest was compatriot Jonas Sultan last May, the first time in nearly a century that Filipinos vied for a world title.

Greek teen Stefanos Tsitsipas reaches Toronto final

TORONTO (AP) — Greek teen Stefanos Tsitsipas became the youngest player to beat four straight top-10 players in an event since the ATP World Tour was established in 1990, outlasting Kevin Anderson 6-7 (4), 6-4, 7-6 (7) on Saturday to reach the Rogers Cup final. Tsitsipas, who will be 20 on Sunday, will face the winner of the late match between top-ranked Rafael Nadal and Karen Khachanov. "Playing in a Masters 1000 final is the best thing that can happen on your birthday," Tsitsipas said. "I cannot believe it." Tsitsipas beat the fourth-seeded Anderson after topping seventh-seeded Dominic Thiem, ninth-seeded Novak Djokovic and second-seeded defending champion Alexander Zverev to reach his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 semifinal. Tsitsipas fired an ace at 7-7 before converting his third match point of the deciding tiebreaker when Anderson's return sailed long. The South African had a match point of his own at 7-6, but Tsitsipas came through with a brilliant backhand crosscourt winner to pull even. The 32-year-old Anderson reached the Wimbledon final last month. He also lost his only other match against Tsitsipas, falling this year on clay in Portugal. Tsitsipas is attempting to become the first player since Albert Portas at Hamburg in 2001 to win his first ATP World Tour title at a Masters 1000 event. Ranked 27th, Tsitsipas would jump 12th with a victory Sunday and to 15th with a loss when the new rankings are released Monday. Nadal beat Tsitsipas in April in the Barcelona Open final......»»

Fernando Sena, the art world’s silent mover

George Bernard Shaw's sour observation---that those who can, do and those who can't, teach---doesn't really hold water in the case of Fernando Sena.   The 70-year-old painter has been teaching art nearly as long as he has been making it, and with equal fervor.   Since 1975, Sena has been conducting art workshops, first with the Children's Museum and Library Inc. (CMLI), then with the Jorge B. Vargas Museum at University of the Philippines Diliman, and now also in his own Buenas Artes Fernando B. Sena Art Facility in Tandang Sora, Quezon City.   He might have carved out a bigger niche for himself in the art world had he foregone the teaching and devote...Keep on reading: Fernando Sena, the art world’s silent mover.....»»
