Fury (29-0-1) looked to be on his way to a comfortable victory as he showed exceptional footwork, flicked the jab and threw combinations. Join DAZN to watch more than 100 fight nights a yearBut Wallin (20-1, 13 KOs) landed a short left hand in Round 3 that opened up Fury. Blood instantly started pouring down the champion’s face. As Fury kept pawing at the cut to wipe the blood away, Wallin was able to do excellent bodywork and land solid shots upstairs.Wallin had things in control and his hopes for a monumental upset were growing significantly when the tide of the fight shifted immediately in Round 6. The ringside doctor inspected Fury’s cut as blood oozed down Fury’s face. Fury told the doctor he could see out of the eye, and the doctor allowed the fight to continue. That woke up Fury, and he took control of the remainder of the contest. Fury stopped with the jab and made it a point to his use his power and size advantage. He kept uncorking hard shots to the body and went upstairs when opportunities presented themselves. When he needed a breather, “The Gypsy King” leaned on Wallin against the ropes until the referee pulled the fighters apart.Down on the scorecards heading into the 12th round, Wallin came out fighting like he had nothing to lose. He connected on five hard left hands that got Fury’s attention. The Briton made it to the final bell, however, and secured his spot against Wilder. All that needs to happen is for the WBC titlist to beat Luis Ortiz in a fight that is expected to take place in November.”Deontay Wilder, I want you next, bum!” Fury said in his postfight interview. “He’s next, Feb. 22. I’ll let the cut heal, enjoy myself and get some time with the family.”Here is what happened at Tyson Fury vs. Otto Wallin:Tyson Fury vs. Otto Wallin live results, updatesTyson Fury def. Otto Wallin by decision in a tougher-than-expected fight1:12 a.m.: Fury def. Wallin by unanimous decision (118-110, 117-111, 116-112). Shocked that two of the scorecards were so wide. Not the performance many were expecting, but Fury did enough to win and to remain undefeated (29-0-1, 20 KOs).Round 12: Wallin put it all on the line. He connected on five shots to the head and then a sharp hook to stun Fury. Fury was trying to survive and Wallin tried everything to win. 10-9 Wallin (115-113 Fury)Round 11: How is Wallin standing? Fury uncorked missle after missle but Wallin somehow stayed on his feet. Time for the final round. 10-9 Fury (106-103 Fury)Round 10: Fury came out trying to put Wallin out of his misery by unleashing one heavy punch after another. It’s a testament to Wallin that he survived. The way Fury continues to pound the body is a thing of beauty. And that’s coming from a heavyweight, which makes it more impressive. 10-9 Fury (96-94 Fury)Round 9: What just happened in the round is what many people were expecting the entire time. Fury’s firing on all cylinders, which resulted in nearly putting Wallin away with a left hook. It’s only a matter of time before Fury puts Wallin away. 10-9 Fury (86-85 Fury)Round 8: Fury is really showing the entire arsenal. He’s using the jab, but he also is showing the power when needed, starting with the body and then finishing upstairs. Wallin is starting to tire. 10-9 Fury (76-76)Round 7: Fury’s energy was different in this round. He threw power shots but also went inside and started to pound the body. A smart strategy by Fury as Wallin was doing the same thing. The tide has shifted in favor of the Briton. 10-9 Fury (67-66 Wallin)Round 6: What a bizarre round. Wallin had it in control until referee Tony Weeks instructed the ringside doctor to come in and check the cut as blood was gushing down Fury’s face. Fury told the doctor he was fine, and the meeting seemed to light a fire under Fury. He connected on a series of power shots to back up Wallin. After the bell, Wallin raked his glove over Fury’s cut. Wallin should have had a point deducted for that. 10-9 Fury (58-56 Wallin)Round 5: Fury has been severely impacted by the cut. He’s fighting not to lose while Wallin is taking every chance to win. Everything Wallin is doing is bothering Fury. The champ needs to get composed and show some urgency in a hurry. 10-9 Wallin (49-46 Wallin)Round 4: Solid work by Wallin. He isn’t abandoning his game plan and continues to go to Fury’s body. Fury came back at the end of the round but it was too little, too late. Can Fury bring that momentum into the fifth round? 10-9 Wallin (39-37 Wallin)Round 3: The complexion of the fight changed when Wallin landed a left hand to open up a huge gash over Fury’s right eye. You could see the cut was bothering Fury in the last 30 seconds and when he was walking back to his corner. Wallin is the aggressor and Fury is backing up. It’s time for Fury to turn it on and start opening up his offense. 10-9 Wallin (29-28 Wallin)Round 2: Another good round for Wallin. He landed a series of shots on the inside. All that did was infuriate Fury, who came roaring back with a four-punch combination including a left hook that stunned Wallin. Feels like Fury can finish whenever he wants if he just turns it up a notch. 10-9 Fury (19-19)Round 1: For about the first minute, it seemed as though Fury would fight on the outside and flick his fantastic jab until he decided to come in and attack. Wallin had other plans. He came in and caught Fury with a left uppercut to get his attention. Wallin stayed in Fury’s space and didn’t allow him to do much. You can tell he has Fury’s respect as Fury gave him a mean stare. Wallin just smiled. Wallin 10-912:13 a.m.: Quite the entrance for Fury. Coming out dancing with a mariachi band in tow. It took Fury a little over five minutes to finally get to the ring. Will the fight even last that long?Midnight: It is now time for the main event of the evening as lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury battles Otto Wallin. Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) looks for his second win of 2019; he easily disposed of Tom Schwarz in June. Wallin (20-0, one no-contest, 13 KOs) looks for his first victory of the year after going to a no-contest against Nick Kisner in April.Expect a walk in the park for Fury, but in boxing, you can never say never. That is why they fight.Emanuel Navarrate thrashes Miguel Elorde to retain WBO title11:41 p.m.: Navarrate def. Elorde by TKO at 0:26 of the fourth round to keep his belt.After nearly being finished in the third, Elorde came out attacking Navarrate and unloaded the kitchen sink. Navarrate walked through the shots with relative ease and unloaded a series of heavy shots himself, including a vicious right hand to force the referee to step in and call the fight. You can say it was a good stoppage but the referee and Elorde’s corner should have put an end to the massacre before the start of the fourth round. That’s how fighters get severely injured. Hopefully, Elorde will be OK.11:35 p.m.: Navarrate nearly sent Elorde packing at the end of the third. He connected on a right hand followed by blistering left hook that almost put Elorde through the ropes. It was considered a knockdown because the ropes protected Elorde. Why is he coming out for the fourth round? Why lead the lamb to slaughter?11:32 p.m.: Navarrate almost put Elorde away in the second round. Elorde landed a body shot and Navarrate followed up with a left hook and then a sharp left uppercut to stagger Elorde. Give Elorde credit. He hung in there and continued to fight. 11:25 p.m.: It is time for the main card and the co-main event of Fury vs. Wallin, as Emanuel Navarrete puts his WBO junior featherweight title on the line against Juan Miguel Elorde. Navarrete (28-1, 24 KOs) returns to defends his championship for the second time in 28 days. Yes, you read that correctly. The 24-year-old defeated Francisco De Vaca by third-round TKO on Aug. 17. His ,promoter Bob Arum, asked him after the fight if he’d be willing to compete on Saturday. Navarrete immediately accepted the offer.Elorde (28-1, 15 KOs) fights for a world title for the first time. He comes in having won 17 consective fights with 11 wins by stoppage. How will Navarrete handle the quick turnaround? Can Elorde rise up in the biggest opportunity of his career?11:03 p.m.: Jose Zepeda def. Jose Pedraza by unanimous decision (97-93, 97-93, 97-93). Not the most entertaining fight but a good win for Zepeda. He needed a win in the worst way. He got off to a good start by going to the body, fell off a bit in the middle rounds but came back for a solid final two rounds to win for the first time in three fights.10:57 p.m.: Where was this action in the previous 11 rounds? Both guys were going for it and showing the fans who they are really are. A close fight to score, but it should go to Zepeda.10:53 p.m.: I don’t know why Zepeda and Pedraza are touching gloves after the 11th round. They have nearly put the crowd to sleep.10:40 p.m.: Very surprised by the lack of action. Both guys appear content to be fighting on the outside.10:15 p.m.: The final preliminary bout of Fury vs. Wallin features Jose Zepeda taking on Jose Pedraza in junior welterweight action. After a narrow majority decision loss to unified champion Jose Ramirez, Zepeda (30-2, two no-contests, 25 KOs) went to a no-contest with Eleazar Valenzuela in May. Pedraza (26-2, 13 KOs), a two-division champion, rebounded from his December loss to pound-for-pound great Vasiliy Lomachenko to stop Ines Antonio Lozada Torres. The consensus among boxing pundits was that Tyson Fury would blast through Otto Wallin on Saturday night and move on to his expected rematch against WBC titlist Deontay Wilder in February.The Swede had other plans. He caused a severe gash over Fury’s right eye that affected Fury throughout the fight. At one point, the ringside doctor looked at the cut to make sure Fury was good to continue. The lineal heavyweight champion dug down deep, though, and overcame the gritty Wallin to win by unanimous decision (118-110, 117-111, 116-112) at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Sporting News scored the fight 115-113 for Fury. A fun fight that should whet the appetite for the main card.10:02 p.m.: Welcome to Sporting News’ live coverage of Fury vs. Wallin.

Dear Editor,Matters of importance and serious concern should be given priority to be raised in the National Assembly of Guyana. Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, during the final day of the budget debates last week, delivered a structured speech and raised several issues of national concern; let me congratulate him for a job well done.I have noticed (in one of the daily newspapers on Sunday) a headline on the front page: “PM amused by 12 PPP protesters following him around with recycled placards”. After reading the article, I realised that these protesters really leave a serious dent on the egoistic mind of the Prime Minister .What is more evident is that these protest actions become a national issue, and were raised in the National Assembly.These protesters should be commended for their persistence and their messages. I want protesters to know that we should continue to protest, because our voices are echoing in the National Assembly.And while he is condemning the spelling on the placards, we will urge the PM to take his mathematics classes more seriously.To those protesting, continue to let your voices be heard.Zamal HussainRDC Councillor,Region 6 read more
Dear Editor,I am convinced that the Constitution of Guyana is based on some fundamental principles and precedents upon which the State is expected or acknowledged to be governed. The purpose of the Constitution is to provide clarity rather confusion especially when challenged.Recently, however, everyone seems to have conjured up his or her own interpretation of the No-confidence Motion handed down December 21, 2018, the D-Day of Guyana. I am interested in assessing the dual citizenship enshrined in the Constitution of Guyana just because. I do not need empiricism or epistemology to understand the meaning of dual citizenship. It means when a person is a citizen of two countries at the same time in which that person has a passport for each country, among other factors. In Guyana, a person is allowed to have dual citizenship but cannot or should not be a selected, an elected or appointed parliamentarian. It is unconstitutional.What I find interesting is the word dual, and without using convoluted Mathematics, simply means two and no more. So, if one has triple or multiple citizenship (Guyana, United States, India or any other country) can that person serve in the Guyanese Parliament? I believe the answer is yes. The word dual in the Constitution does not say it means more than two. So if you have dual citizenship you cannot serve but if you have triple citizenship you can. The Constitution does not disbar the latter situation because it does not fall into the dual citizenship category. I am not in the business of giving out ideas and the fact that the process of acquiring triple citizenship may not be clear-cut, there are countries that will grant citizenship to foreigners that require no heavy lifting.Sincerely,Lomarsh Roopnarine read more

The honor includes a $10,000 prize. A modest smile swept over Yachzel, whose eyes watered as the children clapped. “I’m just totally overwhelmed, surprised and elated,” she said. “I always love coming to this school. This school is like home. It’s a wonderful pleasure.” Since 1990, the Milken Family Foundation has selected teachers from 37 Hebrew schools across Los Angeles to be honored each year. Yachzel’s award represented the first for the Beth Hillel Day School, which also is celebrating its 13th anniversary, or as Sandler called it, its bar mitzvah. School Head Director Fanny Levy said Yachzel was nominated because her commitment to the school goes beyond teaching. She has coordinated Jewish studies classes, worked in the office and served on boards, all to keep the school running smoothly, Levy said. VALLEY VILLAGE – Teacher Beverly Yachzel sat among her second- and third-graders during a morning school assembly Monday, unaware of what was about to happen. The event at the Beth Hillel Day School seemed routine enough, except a well-dressed special guest kept talking about the importance of a teacher on a child’s life. “We don’t always think of teachers as people who do so much for us,” said Richard Sandler, vice president for the Milken Family Foundation, which among other programs provides public recognition to school teachers, principals and other education professionals who stand out. “The most important award we should give is for teachers,” Sandler said. “There isn’t one, and that’s not right.” email@example.com (818) 713-3664160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

1 The Brazilian international has signed a deal until 2023 with the LaLiga club Philippe Coutinho will make his long-anticipated move to Barcelona from Liverpool for a British record fee worth up to £142million after a deal was agreed between the clubs.The 25-year-old playmaker was the subject of a £118million bid from the Catalan club in August, an approach Liverpool rejected, but the Brazil international is now heading to the Nou Camp.A statement published on Liverpool’s website read: “Liverpool can confirm Philippe Coutinho will be leaving the club after a transfer agreement was reached with Barcelona, subject to medical and agreement of personal terms.“The player now has permission to complete the usual formalities to conclude the transfer immediately.”Barcelona said Coutinho would sign a five-and-a-half-year contract, having made him their number one target following his countryman Neymar’s world-record £200.6million move to Paris St Germain.It is understood the fee for Coutinho to consist of an initial 120 million euros (£106.5million), with a further 40 million euros (£35.5million) hinging on add-ons involved in the signing.Barcelona said the buy-out fee in his new contract will be 400 million euros (£354.5million).After being rebuffed by Liverpool in the summer, Barcelona instead bought French forward Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund for £93million.That initially reassured Liverpool fans that Coutinho would not be pursued again, but Dembele has missed the last four months of action through injury and speculation about a renewed Catalonian bid for the Anfield favourite grew ever louder heading into the new year.He had not played for Liverpool since the January transfer window opened because of a thigh problem and did not travel with the squad for their warm weather training camp in Dubai.Coutinho instead headed to Spain to formalise his transfer on Saturday night and it is expected he will be presented by LaLiga leaders Barcelona on Sunday or Monday.The Rio-born player arrived at Anfield from Inter Milan for £8.5million in January 2013 and scored 54 goals for the Reds across his appearances in all competitions, although he won no silverware during his five-year stay.Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp stressed the club had done everything possible to persuade Coutinho to remain at Anfield, but revealed the player had been “desperate” to move to Barcelona since July.“It is with great reluctance that we – as a team and club – prepare to say farewell to a good friend, a wonderful person and a fantastic player in Philippe Coutinho,” Klopp said on Liverpool’s website.“It is no secret that Philippe has wanted this move to happen since July, when Barcelona first made their interest known.“Philippe was insistent with me, the owners and even his team-mates this was a move he was desperate to make happen.“Despite that, we managed to keep the player here beyond the summer window, hoping that we would be able to persuade him to stay and be part of what we are looking to do.“I can tell the Liverpool supporters that we, as a club, have done everything within our means to convince Philippe that remaining part of Liverpool was as attractive as moving to Spain, but he is 100 per cent certain his future – and that of his family – belongs at Barcelona.“It is his dream and I am now convinced there is nothing left at our disposal to change his mind.“Philippe has made a fantastic contribution to this club over his five years of service and as disappointed as we are that he doesn’t want to extend that, the relationship we have for him means, with a heavy heart, we wish him well.” read more
