first_img RELATED PHOTOS IBF light flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi trains at Ohashi Gym on Thursday. | KAZ NAGATSUKA IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 “First off, I will have to reflect on how I’ve practiced to develop myself further from this point on, and I have got to finish every fight I fight in better fashion,” Inoue said at Ohashi Gym on Thursday before resuming his workout.Inoue posted a sixth-round TKO win over compatriot Kohei Kono on Dec. 30 at Ariake Colosseum, defending his belt for the fourth time.“I’ve got to fight more perfectly in 2017,” Inoue said.The 23-year-old is expected to fight again in May. His opponent has not been finalized, but gym president Hideyuki Ohashi said the WBO could order the Japanese champion to face a designated opponent. Ohashi added that the gym will negotiate with a top super flyweight, such as Mexico’s Carlos Cuadras (35-1-1) and Roman Gonzalez to take on Inoue.The potential Inoue-Gonzalez showdown is already a hot topic among hard-core boxing fans and media around the world. Gonzalez, who won the WBC super flyweight title from Cuadras by unanimous decision last September, has a 46-0-0 record (38 KOs) and is considered one of the best boxers on the planet. Nicaragua’s “Chocolatito” is currently No. 1 on Ring Magazine’s pound-for-pound list.Inoue is known as “Monster” for his unparalleled talent, yet he humbly said that he has tons of things that he needs to improve.Though he went 3-0 last year, Inoue was bothered by fist and lower back injuries. He also struggled to get in peak physical condition.Looking ahead, Inoue suggested that it would be significant to be in his best physical condition on upcoming fight nights because he’s expected to have bigger bouts, potentially outside of Japan for the first time, this year.“Having the right condition for my fights and fighting with better balance will be what I want to improve this year,” said Inoue, a native of Zama, Kanagawa Prefecture.Shingo Inoue, the boxer’s father and trainer, agreed with his son’s point, saying that “it wouldn’t mean anything” if he puts in hard work in training but isn’t in top condition on the day of the fight.Meanwhile, IBF light flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi also got back to work for the first time since he successfully defended his title for the second time with a 12th-round TKO over Thailand’s Samartlek Kokietgym at the same event as Inoue.The 33-year-old triple-division champion is also scheduled to get in the ring in May, facing interim IBF flyweight champion Milan Melindo.Yaegashi was originally supposed to meet Melindo on Dec. 30, but the Filipino withdrew due to a nose injury and Yaegashi was assigned to fight Samartlek just a few weeks before the event.“It’s great that we already know who I’ll be fighting against at this point, because we can study him early on,” said Yaegashi, who’s recognized for his fierce toe-to-toe style of boxing. “I would like to focus on the fight and definitely win it.” Akira Yaegashi, Naoya Inoue, Kohei Kono, Ohashi Gym, Carlos Cuadras, Roman Gonzalez, Milan Melindo, Samartlek Kokietgym, Hideyuki Ohashi KEYWORDS WBO super flyweight champion Naoya Inoue punches mitts his father and trainer Shingo Inoue hold at Ohashi Gym on Thursday. | KAZ NAGATSUKA GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES Naoya Inoue, arguably Japan’s most promising boxing star, has his sights set on a lofty goal for 2017: to become a bigger global star.The unbeaten WBO super flyweight champion said that he wouldn’t hesitate to fight against the weight division’s best boxers in the world if given the chance.last_img read more

first_imgKentucky is No. 1 in the latest Associated Press Top 25, extending its season-long streak at the top of the rankings.The Wildcats are not the only team locked into place.For the sixth straight week, the same teams held the top seven spots in the poll, the first time that’s happened since the 1992-93 season. Though Virginia and Gonzaga swapped places two weeks ago, nothing else has changed, establishing a firm hierarchy at the top.“Those teams at the top set the standard for the rest of the teams in the country,” said Hall of Famer Bill Walton, a college basketball analyst for ESPN and the Pac-12 Networks. “I don’t know Villanova that well, but those other teams bring it every night.”The top portion of the poll has remained roughly the same all season, even when teams lose.Kentucky is the only undefeated Division I team left and has been No. 1 all season. The Wildcats (27-0) were the unanimous No. 1 for the fourth straight week after receiving all 65 first-place votes from a media panel on Monday.Virginia remained at No. 2, followed by Gonzaga, Duke, Wisconsin, Villanova and Arizona. Those teams all won, so no surprise there.Kansas lost to No. 20 West Virginia last week, but didn’t budge on the poll; the Jayhawks were No. 8 for the fourth straight week.Notre Dame stayed in the top 10 despite losses to Pittsburgh and Duke a few weeks ago, and moved up a spot to No. 9 this week after Utah lost and dropped to No. 13.Northern Iowa shook up the status quo a bit by moving into the top 10 for the first time as a program, but changes at the top end of the poll have been minute for most of the season.Unless one of those top teams comes apart over the last two weeks of the regular season, the trend is likely to continue.___TOP-10 PANTHERS: Northern Iowa (26-2) took a big step last week by reaching No. 11, its highest ranking as a program.The Panthers only moved up one spot this week, but it was a big one.After extending its win streak to 15 games last week, Northern Iowa cracked the top 10 for the first time as a program. The Panthers had been the only Division school in Iowa to not have made an appearance in the AP top 10.“Another line in the sand,” Northern Iowa coach Ben Jacobson said on Monday. “Getting in the top 25 was a big deal when we did it. Being ranked this long has been great, I’m really proud of the guys for it. The top 10 is the top 10. It’s a pretty awesome deal.”___RISING AND FALLINGWest Virginia and VCU each had the week’s biggest climb, moving up three spots.The Mountaineers were up to No. 20 after taking down No. 8 Kansas and No. 22 Oklahoma State. The Rams beat Saint Louis and UMass to reach No. 22.Louisville had the biggest drop, falling five places to No. 17 after losing to Syracuse.Butler also matched Utah’s fall, dropping four sports to No. 23 after scraping past Creighton and losing to Xavier.___IN AND OUTLast week, the same 25 teams filled the poll as the week before, though with a little shuffling.This week’s top 25 had a few changes.San Diego State was back in the poll at No. 24 after dropping out in December. The Aztecs reached No. 13 on Nov. 30, dropped out three weeks later and are back in the Top 25 after winning seven of their past eight games.No. 25 Providence is back in the poll for the first time since being ranked 21st in the final poll of the 2003-04 season.Oklahoma State dropped out from No. 22 after losing to Iowa State and West Virginia. Ohio State fell out from No. 24 after losing to unranked Michigan.last_img read more

first_imgCRISTIANO Ronaldo suffered the first Champions League red card of his career for Juventus but which games will he be suspended for? Could he miss a return to Old Trafford?The Portugal forward appeared to pull Valencia defender Jeison Murillo’s hair – and was shown a straight red card – although Juventus went on to win 2-0 without him on Wednesday.UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Ronaldo and European football’s governing body will deal with the case on September 27.Unlike the Premier League’s automatic three-game ban for violent conduct, UEFA’s punishments are on a case-by-case basis.A one-game ban is automatic – with no right of appeal – but UEFA regulation 50.01 for the competition says that “in case of serious offences, the UEFA control, ethics and disciplinary body is entitled to augment this punishment”.Ronaldo, 33, will definitely miss their next Champions League game against Young Boys on October 2 – but a two-game ban would rule him out of the trip to his former side Manchester United on October 23.And if he were to be handed a three-match suspension, he would also miss Juve’s home game against United on November 7.UEFA could possibly decide to increase the ban because of the time it took Ronaldo, who was in tears, to leave the pitch.Yesterday the organisation said it was waiting to receive the referee’s report before deciding whether or not to extend the suspension.Juventus would be able to make an appeal against any increase in the ban.But former Red Devils midfielder Darren Fletcher expects the Champions League’s all-time top scorer to play both games against his old side.“It was a soft sending-off for Ronaldo, but the letter of the law says you probably cannot do that, so I think the one-match ban will probably stick,” the Stoke player told BBC Radio 5 live.“He will feel like he was letting his team-mates down in that moment, but I expect him to play in both games against Manchester United.”Former United defender Rio Ferdinand tweeted that Juventus have “surely got to appeal this”, but former Celtic forward Chris Sutton said Ronaldo had “only himself to blame … definite red”.Could VAR have saved Ronaldo?The video assistant referee (VAR) system is not being employed in the Champions League this season.Ronaldo escaped a red card while playing for Portugal against Iran in this summer’s World Cup when a VAR decision resulted in his being booked.Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri said after Wednesday’s game: “VAR would’ve helped the referee in this decision.“Going down to 10 men in the Champions League for an incident like that is disappointing. We risked losing tonight with this and we’ll miss him for the next games too.“He was disappointed, but it takes time to calm down. He must get over it, and get ready for Sunday (against Frosinone), even if they are situations that leave a bitter taste in the mouth.” (BBC Sport)last_img read more
