Carl Frampton hijacked the grand plans of the brilliant Leo Santa Cruz on Saturday night with a stunning win in New York. cheap nfl jerseys free shipping .Frampton of Northern Ireland was the underdog, the challenger, moving up in weight and away from home, but he fought with incredible intelligence to take Santa Cruzs WBA featherweight title.Santa Cruz was unbeaten in 33 fights. The Frampton fight was his 12th in four years for a world title and he had a long list of future opponents. Santa Cruz was destined for, and had been selected for, dominance and continued lucrative TV fights; nobody told Frampton before the first bell.Ringside at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, the champions and potential future challengers watched the brilliant Frampton use his brain to take rounds and then take the belt. Santa Cruz talked about a rematch, possibly in Los Angeles, and that could happen. However, he looked broken by the loss and will need to answer a few harsh questions about his lack of tactics.Lee Selby, the IBF featherweight champion from Barry Island in Wales, was an excited ringside guest. It was a great performance and I would love a fight with Carl, he said. That fight is certainly feasible, as the pair shares the same adviser in Al Haymon.Every single world featherweight champion, the leading contenders and all of the best super bantamweights will now want a fight with Frampton. Both Frampton and Santa Cruz are refugees from the super bantamweight division, men who simply needed the extra 4 pounds in weight to allow them to continue fighting.On Saturday night Frampton, 29, took a huge step toward stardom, and the look on the faces of those in the Santa Cruz business was priceless. Frampton is now an attraction in America, but he has a lot of lucrative options in Britain and Ireland.A partial unification with Selby would do stunning business outdoors in Belfast, as would a rematch with the British Scott Quigg, another ringside spectator to the Frampton show. In February at a sold-out venue in Manchester, and in a big pay-per-view fight on Sky, Frampton broke Quiggs jaw and took his unbeaten record as well as his WBA super bantamweight title.Frampton also trousered £1.5 million, phenomenal money for small men in any country and at any time. A rematch in Belfast would work -- Quigg wants it and it proves that British world champions are not dependent on the American market.The new WBO champion at featherweight, Oscar Valdez, who is unbeaten in 20 fights with 18 knockouts, would pose a fight that could top any bill in Las Vegas. A fight with the technically gifted WBC incumbent Gary Russell Jr. is another realistic option.We will look at all the champions, the leading contenders and other fighters -- Carl is suddenly very popular, insisted Barry McGuigan, who is Framptons promoter and mentor. McGuigan won the same WBA featherweight belt 30 years and 13 champions ago. He was in tears at the end.There is another option -- one that is admittedly very unlikely but is possibly going to keep on surfacing -- and that is the brilliant Cuban Guillermo Rigondeaux. Frampton was ordered to defend his super bantamweight titles against Rigondeaux but took the sensible option: vacating, gaining weight and beating Santa Cruz, who was as daunting a task as Rigondeaux. The Cuban congratulated Frampton and promised to keep chasing him. He is a true warrior and I know he will fight me, Rigondeaux said.Right now Frampton needs to let his face stop aching, rest his sore hands and enjoy a Belfast homecoming that perhaps no other active boxer, certainly none of Britains other 13 world champions, could dream of experiencing. Santa Cruz, meanwhile, will return to California to try and make sense of what happened. At the same time the fight fixers will go to work in their parlours and try and get their boxers a piece of the Frampton action. cheap jerseys . 9.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner thinks it would be foolish to write off Lewis Hamiltons championship chances this season despite the 33-point deficit he faces with four races remaining. Air Max 97 Rose Gold Womens .A poor getaway meant Hamilton was forced into a recovery drive to third at the Japanese Grand Prix, though he still lost 10 points to Mercedes teammate and championship leader Nico Rosberg. The result meant Hamiltons destiny is no longer in his own hands as he could win the last four races and still not claim a fourth world title.However, Horner says Hamilton only needs a sniff of something to change the momentum in his favour.When asked to comment on the Mercedes title battle and Hamiltons chances, Horner replied: I think in any sport you see sportsmen... They get on a crest of a wave and everything falls right for them. Its going Nicos way at the moment. Lewis has had quite a few tough weekends this year but hell brush himself down for sure and he can fight back.He only needs that sniff of something, you know, a DNF for Nico and a win for Lewis and hes right back in the game again. Things can change so very quickly. We saw it from Kimi [Raikkonen] when he stole the championship from under Lewis and Fernando [Alonso]s noses 10 years ago or whatever it was. Theres still 100 points available in this championship and I would be a foolish person to rule him out at this stage. Air Max 97 Rose Gold Release Date .J.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Tyler Skaggs will pitch at Angel Stadium for the first time in two years Sunday when the Los Angeles Angels and the Boston Red Sox conclude their three-game series.The left-hander, who turned 25 on July 13, returned to major-league action Tuesday night in Kansas City after spending the past two years recuperating from Tommy John surgery. In his start against the Royals, Skaggs conceded just three hits and one walk in seven shutout innings while collecting five strikeouts in the Angels 13-0 romp. Skaggs threw 63 of his 88 pitches for strikes.It went a lot better than I expected, to say the least, Skaggs told MLB.com afterward. Everything just felt really fast in that first at-bat and after that, it started to slow down. It was a fun game for me.The left-hander last pitched in Anaheim on July 25, 2014, when he struck out five in 5 2/3 innings while allowing runs on five hits and a walk against the Detroit Tigers. In his next start six days later, Skaggs amassed seven strikeouts and issued no walks during 4 2/3 no-hit innings in Baltimore but left after throwing 72 pitches. Skaggs underwent ligament-transfer surgery 13 days later.Skaggs began this season with Triple-A Salt Lake but after his first three starts, biceps tendinitis kept him from pitching for two months. Skaggs returned to minor-league action June 22 with a rehabilitation assignment with the Angels rookie-league team in Arizona before returning to Salt Lake on July 2.In his final two minor-league starts, Skaggs held opponents to just two hits and three walks in 12 2/3 shutout innings while accumulating 26 strikeouts. Fourteen came against Triple-A Omaha to tie the Bees team record set by Jered Weaver.The left-hander will play a pivotal role in the starting rotation for the rest of this season and well into the next, at least.

But hes ready now, and were happy to have him.Opposing Skaggs will be 31-year-old knuckleballer Steven Wright, who is having the best season of his career. The right-hander, an American League All-Star for the first time, already has career bests in victories (12), complete games (3), starts (20), strikeouts (109) and innings (132 2/3).Wright anticipated being one of the bullpens spare parts before left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez suffered a knee injury that forced a quick change in plans.I was going to be a long guy, spot starter, the knuckleball specialist told the Boston Globe. I knew my role in spring training. They made it clear. Thats what I prepared for. I knew there was a chance Id get starts. I didnt think Id be in the rotation. Unfortunately, Eddie got hurt but it opened up a door for me.But Wright had perhaps his worst start of the season in his last appearance Tuesday night against the Tigers in Fenway Park. The right-hander allowed eight earned runs on nine hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings yet received no decision in Bostons 9-8 defeat. Before that game, Wright won his previous four starts.This is a tough loss for me because I feel like if you can get eight runs, you should get the team a win, Wright told MLB.com afterward.

Coaxing Zimbabwes batsmen out of their comfort zones is foremost in the mind of their batting coach Lance Klusener as he looks to prepare them for their two-Test series against New Zealand. Jerseys Cheap . Klusener is currently back home in South Africa but will join up with the Zimbabwean squad later this month and hopes to see the senior members of the line-up step up.Its about whether they really want to challenge themselves and get better or if they are happy to just bumble along; its about coming out of comfort zones, Klusener told ESPNcricinfo. They can achieve better if they put themselves out there more. Obviously the more you put yourself out, the more risk there is, so there is also that balance [is needed] but I think they are getting there.The reluctance to bat aggressively is something former Zimbabwe coach Alan Butcher alluded to in his book The Good Murungu in which he recalled an incident with a senior Zimbabwean batsman who described his role as being to make sure I dont lose my wicket rather than to score runs. More recently, the effects of that conservatism have begun to bleed into performance.In last months limited-overs series against India, Zimbabwe were bowled out for totals under 200 in all three ODIs and only scored more than 150 once. Vusi Sibanda was the only Zimbabwean batsman to score a half-century in the ODIs. They punched a little harder in the first T20, where they notched up 170 for 6 thanks largely to Elton Chigumburas 26-ball 54, but their other scores of 99 for 9 and 135 for 6 could not sustain that momentum.Still, Klusener was heartened to see the improvement as the series progressed. It was good to see them take the last T20 close, Klusener said, referring to a three-run defeat which cost Zimbabwe the series. The one thing with Zimbabwe is that you can always expect a fight. They now that if they fight and they lose, thats okay.At the same time he is concerned about a lack of depth that sees the same names crop up as the countrys main performers. They have a small pool of players and so they have to make the best of what theyve got. Its one of their challenges and they want to try and fix it, but whether they can do that from the top down is another story.One of the ways of grooming more players for higher honours are tours like the ongoing one between South Africa A and Zimbabwe A, in which some of Zimbabwes fringe players have an opportunity to prove themselves. Opening batsman Brain Chari made full use of his and scored 98 in his first outing in the series. Its players that like who Klusener is hoping to work with and teach the no-fear mentality.Klusener has someone to help him in that approach: Makhaya Ntini. Although Ntini has not been confirmed as permanent coach after he was promoted to the interim role for the India series, it is expected Ntini will continue to be in charge for the New Zealand series. Ntini remained in Zimbabwe after the India series and has been working with the players throughout.Klusener believes Ntini is making a difference and it wont take long for it to show. Makhaya is energetic and passionate and adds value. He has been very good for Zimbabwe. He trains with the guys. He gets to know them. He doesnt lack for ideas and between us - we are a team - we have a lot of ideas. Its just about getting the guys to buy into the ideas we have.Klusener will be back in Zimbabwe to resume that process towards the ends of July. He will work with the team during the two Tests before heading to the Tamil Nadu Premier League in India, where he is coaching the Lyca Kovai Kings. He expects to be back in Zimbabwe when they play again towards the end of 2016. Jerseys NFL Cheap . After Gasquet beat fifth-seeded Ivan Dodig of Croatia 7-5, 6-3, Tsonga followed up with a 6-7 (3), 6-2, 6-2 win against sixth-seeded Edouard Roger-Vasselin in an all-French match.

You know the play: P-44 Haynes was the name. It was 2001, Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn. A 6-yard touchdown pass from David Greene to Verron Haynes with five seconds left, the tailback wide open in the middle of the end zone, that gave Georgia a 26-24 win over Tennessee.You know Larry Munsons now legendary radio call, as well: We just stepped on their face with a hobnail boot and broke their nose - we just crushed their face!What you may not know is that Haynes, now 37 and living in Buford, Ga., was in Athens Friday for fall commencement, having just completed his last class before earning his degree in finance.Finish The Drill was the motto former coach Mark Richt implemented when he took charge of the program starting with that 2001 season. Haynes and the Bulldogs lived up to it that day in Knoxville and Haynes was proud to say this week that he did so again by, 15 years after playing his last down for the Dogs, getting his undergraduate degree from Georgia.You look up and 15 years later youre graduating, said Haynes, whose family was with him in Athens on Friday. Life happens when you get out of school and it moves quite rapidly. Im asking the kids to finish everything they start and I cant be a hypocrite.Haynes left Georgia for the NFL, drafted in 2002 by the Pittsburgh Steelers, two classes short of his degree. He still needed to pass pre-calculus and calculus, he said.Those were my Achilles heel, so to speak, he said. I was always withdrawing before [the end of the drop period].Haynes played seven seasons in the NFL, earning a Super Bowl ring with the Steelers (alongside former Georgia great Hines Ward) in Super Bowl XL. He ended his career with the Atlanta Falcons in 2009, amassing in his career 738 rushing yards, 449 receiving and five touchdowns.Three years ago, still those two credits short of his degree, Haynes, a real estate investor who has also worked as a commentator for ESPN International, decided to do something about it. He passed pre-calculus then, but it wasnt until thiss fall that he found the time to complete calculus, taking the course online, and earn the opportunity to participate in commencement at Stegeman Coliseum today. Jerseys NFL Authentic China. was kind of keeping it quiet until last week and then when I finished my final final and I knew that I had successfully completed the class, I sent a mass text to my mother and my siblings and all the kin, letting them know that they would be attending graduation, he said. It was a joyous moment, and my son interestingly enough texted me, Way to go, dad, that was strong of you. Way to finish the drill.And that kind of touched me, so I shared that with Coach Richt this past weekend and he said that brought tears to his eyes. I just thanked him for all the moments that he enlightened us with and that his Finish The Drill slogan is still playing an important role in life today.Haynes is among 35 Georgia athletes participating in commencement today. Another football player earning a finance degree, safety Aaron Davis, was a few days from turning 7 years old on Oct. 6, 2001, when one of the most famous plays in Bulldog history happened: Greene to Haynes.When Tennessee visited Georgia this fall, Haynes and Greene did an autograph signing. It means a lot, Haynes said, to be part of a special moment in Georgia football history.Its a humbling feeling, it definitely is, he said. I think for me, I would be remiss if I didnt also remember my teammates and talk about my teammates when that play is mentioned. David Greene and I get a lot of the notoriety, but Randy McMichael and Damien Gary made big plays on that game-winning drive, and you cant forget the guy who called it at the perfect time, Coach Richt himself.It was one of those glorious moments that stuck and still sticks in life for me, because of what it meant to so many people.And that degree, earned 15 years later, will be with him for life, as well.

LEVERKUSEN, Germany -- Tottenham held off Bayer Leverkusens constant pressure in the second half to earn a useful Champions League point in a 0-0 draw on Tuesday. cheap nfl jerseys .Vincent Janssen hit the crossbar for Tottenham in the first half and Dele Alli had the follow-up tipped over, but Leverkusen had the better chances after the break.Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris scooped the ball away on the line after an effort by Javier Chicharito Hernandez -- with goal-line technology showing that the ball hadnt fully crossed the line.Monaco came from behind to salvage a 1-1 draw at CSKA Moscow and tops Group E with five points. Tottenham has four, Leverkusen three and CSKA two.Unbeaten in the Premier League, Tottenham found the net in the 10th but Son Heung-min was ruled to have been offside while passing to Janssen.Allis header off Kieren Trippiers cross went close before Tottenham wasted its best chance of the match in the 39th.Son began the move on the left and fed Alli, whose shot was blocked. The ball rolled to Trippier, who sent in another good cross. Janssen hit the crossbar and Erik Lamela pounced on the rebound, but goalkeeper Bernd Leno tipped it over.Chicharito should have scored shortly after the break but Lloris caught the ball on the line, which was confirmed by goal-line technology.Lloris also did well to palm away a shot by Charles Aranguiz.Leverkusen, which plays Tottenham in two weeks at Wembley, now faces an uphill struggle after drawing all of its three first matches. It squandered a two-goal lead at home over CSKA and conceded an injury time equalizer in Monaco. cheap jerseys . Rinne played two periods in his first game since left hip surgery in early May.

"We talked about wanting to be disciplined and stick with our game plan and good things will come," Draisaitl said, who had two goals for the victors. http://www.cheapjerseysnflchinasupply.net/ . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. HARTFORD, Conn. -- The expulsion of two college athletes on sexual misconduct grounds highlights a little-known facet of the latitude schools are given when investigating such cases: They can mete out punishment even in the absence of a complaint from the alleged victim.Former Yale University basketball captain Jack Montague and former Colorado State-Pueblo football player and wrestler Grant Neal both filed federal lawsuits this year over their expulsions, alleging their schools mishandled information that originated with someone other than the alleged victim.There is no real complainant, said attorney Andrew Miltenberg, who represents Neal and has been the lawyer for about 100 men accused of sexual assaults on campuses. There is no victim making the charge. There is the school acting on some sort of hearsay or information.Neal was suspended after a woman reported to school authorities that her friend had been assaulted. According to the lawsuit, both Neal and the alleged victim said the sex was consensual, but the woman said she stopped the encounter at one point because Neal wasnt wearing a condom and then resumed it after he put one on.Montague was expelled after a friend of the woman involved in his case went to a school official who ensures Yales compliance with Title IX, the federal law designed to prevent sexual discrimination in education.The lawsuit alleges the Title IX officer brought the complaint more than a year after the incident and despite being told the woman did not believe Montague heard her when she tried to end their sexual encounter. The victim eventually cooperated only after the Title IX officer informed her that Montague had previously received counseling after an incident involving another woman, according to the lawsuit.The lawsuit alleges the school didnt tell her that case involved him shoving a paper plate down someones shirt following a drunken argument outside a pizza parlor.Both athletes say the sexual encounters were entirely consensual, and neither was ever charged with a crime. But in both cases, the schools acted after finding that a preponderance of the evidence indicated sexual misconduct more likely took place than didnt.Thats a much lower standard than the beyond a reasonable doubt standard of the criminal justice system.Schools have been using the preponderance standard since receiving a Dear Colleague letter in 2001 from the Department of Educations Office for Civil Rights, outlining how they should handle sexual misconduct allegations. It warned that schools that fail to promptly investigate allegations of sexual assault and harassment, even if the accuser does not make a complaint to the institution, can face a loss of federal money.Miltenberg, Neals attorney, said that raises questions about whether schools are trying to conduct fair investigations or making examples out of high-profile defendants to appease the Office for Civil Rights.Even at the schools with the greatest of endowments, like a Yale, the threat of taking away federal ffunding is significant, he said. wholesale jerseys. KC Johnson, a professor at Brooklyn College who has written extensively on how schools handle sexual assault allegations, said the threat of an OCR investigation into a university also is powerful motivation for the institutions to be aggressive and err on the side of punishing the accused.Schools are not capable of dealing with situations like this very well, he said. Its hard to fairly be a prosecutor, an investigator and a juror simultaneously.He said thats why schools including Yale have a policy of having its Title IX officer bring cases in the absence of a victim complaint only in extraordinary circumstances, such as when there is an acute risk to the community. He said its not clear that either of these cases meet that threshold.Beth Hamilton, the director of prevention and programs at the Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence, defends the preponderance standard as appropriate in a college setting.Schools dont have the forensic tools and other resources necessary to conduct a police-style investigation of every report and cant force people to testify, she said.Discipline from a school is often appropriate, she said, whether the conduct rises to the level of a crime or not.The worst that a university can do is expel a student from their institution, she said. The criminal justice process should have a higher standard, because the worst thing that can happen is you can incarcerate somebody.But Johnson points out that being expelled could cost Montague millions of dollars over the course of his life, prevent him from getting a job and leave him labeled for life as a rapist.Yale called its investigation of the Montague case, and its process for investigating allegations, thorough and fair.Only about one out of 10 cases has ended in expulsion, and the decision to expel a student has been made only after the most careful consideration, based on the facts and, when appropriate, disciplinary history, the school said in a statement.Cora Zaletel, a spokeswoman for Colorado State-Pueblo, said the school would not comment because of the litigation.Its unusual for a victim to not want to participate in the process, or even to not understand that what happened to them was misconduct, said Viktoria Kristiansson, a former prosecutor who now works as a consultant for AEquitas, a group that advises schools and prosecutors on cases involving violence against women.She would not comment on the specifics of the Yale and Pueblo cases. But, she said, schools dont have any choice but to investigate and act on allegations, no matter their genesis.The reason we have these various options for reporting is because the goal of having these systems in place is to keep communities safe, she said. Whether these reports are coming from the victims themselves or society, we should hope that these are always going to be looked into.
