McGregor’s biggest rival: ‘No way’ Conor beats Mayweather

first_imgView comments While McGregor’s win ended Aldo’s 10-year winning streak, nobody found it to be as utterly improbable as a potential victory over Mayweather (49-0), the most successful boxer of his generation. McGregor worked relentlessly to get under Aldo’s skin during the months before their fight, and Aldo recognizes the similarities in the mental game McGregor is playing against Mayweather.McGregor calls himself “Mystic Mac” due to his ability to predict the results of his fights. While he has been wrong before — such as in his submission loss to Nate Diaz last year — he has shown a remarkable ability to back up his boasts with results.McGregor vowed to stop Mayweather within four rounds during their uproarious promotional tour last month, but Aldo is among those who don’t think even McGregor believes it. Aldo saw the posturing and insult-trading as something else entirely.“It’s a joke,” Aldo said. “He’s just looking for the money.”Aldo spoke while in Los Angeles to support Brazilian boxer Esquiva Falcao, who fought on the undercard of Vasyl Lomachenko’s victory over Miguel Marriaga.ADVERTISEMENT NGCP on security risk: Chinese just technical advisers Robredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo LATEST STORIES “There is no way McGregor can defeat Mayweather,” Aldo said. “Mayweather has done this his entire life, and it’s a different sport.”The way Aldo sees it, McGregor has obvious motivations for the spectacle that will occur Aug. 26 in Las Vegas — and those motivations don’t include boxing glory.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“After the Mayweather fight, he’ll get lots of millions of dollars,” Aldo said. “Probably he’ll never fight again.”Aldo was the most dominant champion in mixed martial arts until McGregor set his sights on the Brazilian star several years ago. McGregor embarrassed and infuriated the champ with his loquacious showmanship during the buildup to their December 2015 bout — and then McGregor stunned the UFC with a 13-second knockout of Aldo, flattening the feared 145-pound star with one punch.

Aldo lost the belt again in June to Max Holloway, who stopped him in the third round in Brazil.Aldo said he doesn’t plan to move up to lightweight, but hopes to reclaim the featherweight belt from Holloway, who received praise from Aldo. The loss to McGregor stings much more.“(McGregor) can say whatever he wants, but he was a lucky guy,” Aldo said. “One punch and he finished it. No skills.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextcenter_img Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Khade’s mistake costs him rare medal

first_imgLike ‘Flying Sikh’ Milkha Singh at the 1960 Rome Olympics and former track queen PT Usha at the Los Angeles Games in 1984, Virdhawal Khade missed what could have been only the second medal in swimming at the Asian Games on Monday. It turned out to be a yet another case of never before Khajan Singh and never after him.India’s fastest swimmer managed only the fourth spot in the 50m freestyle after clocking 22.87, just 0.03 seconds behind the bronze medal winner Japan’s Rammaru Harada who had clocked 22.84 sec at the Aoeti Spors Complex pool here. Predictably, the winner was Wu Shi Lu at 22.37 sec from the host nation who pushed another Japanese Masayuki Kishida to the second spot for silver.It was, indeed, a disappointing day for India and that gloom could have been lifted by Khade and given greater impetus to swimming had he not committed the blunder of stretching to touch the pad, rather than plunging for another stroke. “It was the biggest mistake of my life,” admitted Khade. He as well as the Indian officials present at the pool knew how it has cost the country a precious medal, more so in swimming where India have not won a medal after Khajan Singh. That was way back in 1986 at Seoul.Since then it has been a big struggle for Indian swimmers to make a mark. Monday was the day when Khade could have done that besides overcoming the disappointment of not winning a medal at the Commonwealth Games back home.advertisement”The boy’s potential was never in doubt. We all along knew Virdhawal was capable of winning us a medal, but for the crucial mistake,” said Virendera Nanavati, the secretary-general of the Swimming Federation of India (SFI).Drawn in lane two after qualifying in Heat 6 at 22.98, he had in the final two Chinese in Qiang Run Shi and Wu Zhi besides the two Japanese and a Korean, Taipei and a Hong Kong swimmer. Except for the Taipei and Hong Kong swimmers, all others, including Khade, clocked sub-23 seconds.The difference between the winners and Khade was all of them had been coming after hard practice for the Games. To Khade’s credit, it must be said that he had the pressure of performing in front a home crowd at the New Delhi Games. Just before that he had to compete in the Nationals which was the qualification event. Instead, he should have been allowed to train in the US.One SFI official, who did not want to be quoted, admitted that if Khade had continued his practice in the US and come for the CWG, he would have done well both at home and here. He said this without blaming the authorities for the mistake. Whatever the case, both Khade and India lost a precious medal on Monday.last_img read more

NYK to Use Binary Cycle Power Generation on New Panamax

first_imgzoom Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) intends to deploy a binary cycle power generation system on a newly constructed Panamax bulk carrier to be operated by the company. As explained, the system will generate electricity from the exhaust heat emitted by the marine engine’s air cooler.In addition, NYK is to provide the system developer with operational data from the ship to help improve the product.A binary cycle power generation system for ships has been jointly developed by Kobe Steel, Miura, and Asahi Shipping and has received approval as “environmental equipment” from Japan’s ship classification society Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK).The generated electric power will serve as auxiliary power and is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 2.3 percent by decreasing fuel consumption.NYK has previously equipped Capesize bulk carriers and pure car and truck carriers with hybrid power supply systems to utilize exhaust heat from engine exhaust gas. However, the binary cycle power generation system will give the opportunity to reuse engine exhaust heat to generate electricity on Panamax vessels, according to NYK.last_img read more

The 2014-15 Warriors were astonishingly balanced; they had the NBA’s second-best offense and led the league in defensive efficiency. This season’s version, however, was first in offensive rating by a healthy margin but sixth-best on defense — good, but not great. The resulting team was ever-so-slightly better, but less symmetrical.In the playoffs, though, the Warriors’ defense has helped the team battle through Stephen Curry’s absence and reclaim the mantle of NBA title favorite. Here’s the offensive and defensive efficiency of this season’s playoff teams relative to average, accounting for the regular-season performance of a team’s opponents:1These numbers also factor in home-court advantage (roughly 2.8 points per 100 possessions) and the championship leverage of every game. 5Portland Trail Blazers5-6+3.9-1.7+2.2 Team efficiencies adjusted for strength of schedule using opponents‘ regular-season stats.Source: Basketball-Reference.com The Cavs have blown away their playoff peers so far, but Golden State deserves credit as well for posting the best defensive performance of any remaining team. Indeed, the Warriors’ ratings look a lot like the balanced attack that drove their championship last season — even though Curry has suited up for just six of the team’s 12 games.When the Warriors require outbursts of unadulterated offensive brilliance — like, say, 12 points in 82 seconds or 17 points in an overtime period — Curry has been happy to oblige. But Golden State has also held the mighty Oklahoma City Thunder offense to an efficiency rate 10 points per 100 possessions below their regular-season standard through two games of the Western Conference finals. Even on nights when the Warrior offense isn’t operating at peak productivity, such as Game 1 against OKC, the defense can keep the game competitive into its final minutes.With Draymond Green leading the way, Golden State’s D in this series has already forced the Thunder into two of their 19 worst games of the season according to quantified shot quality, a player tracking-based measure that accounts for the location and conditions under which every shot is taken. In games 1 and 2, Kevin Durant’s shot quality has been his sixth- and 21st-worst of the year, and Russell Westbrook has been limited to his 31st and 24th-worst games. If it’s seemed like Russ and KD have been swimming upstream for long stretches in the series so far, this is why. The duo’s effective field goal percentage in the series is just 43 percent, far below their combined regular-season mark of 53 percent.There’s still plenty of time for the Thunder to wrest control of the series back from Golden State. But to do it, Oklahoma City will have to go through the Warrior defense, a unit that’s back to being as sturdy as it was during the team’s title run last season.Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more

Football Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins makes case for playing time

Ohio State redshirt freshman quarterback Dwayne Haskins (7) waits for a snap in the fourth quarter of the 2017 OSU- Army game on Sep. 16. OSU won 38-7. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThough he remains unlikely to unseat J.T. Barrett as Ohio State’s starting quarterback, Dwayne Haskins took the first snaps of his career Saturday on the Buckeyes’ final drive of their 38-7 win against Army.The redshirt freshman did not disappoint. Haskins completed all four of his passes for 46 yards, zipping the ball to four separate receivers on each throw and driving the Buckeyes to Army’s 10-yard line. “I thought he performed well when he was in there,” coach Urban Meyer said after the game. “He was 4-for-4. I wanted to throw him more, but you just didn’t want to do something silly.”His big-armed, pocket passing style starkly contrasted with Barrett’s dual-threat approach. In Haskins’ only drive, he completed passes of 14 and 15 yards. In the rest of the game, Barrett completed six passes for at least 14 yards.Meyer praised Haskins’ quick release after the game and said Haskins might have had a chance to score on his only drive, but did not want to score another touchdown and run the score up.After Ohio State’s first loss of the season, a decisive 31-16 defeat to Oklahoma, Meyer said he hoped to find Haskins some reps in regular-season games with the goal being to prepare the quarterback to be “game-ready.” Meyer did not believe Haskins earned that designation last week and believes he still has to work to earn the tag.Redshirt freshman quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. (7) warms up prior to the season opener against Indiana. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorIn Meyer’s mind, a large experience gap exists between practice reps and game reps, and another lies in whether the game reps occur under pressure. At the end of the game against Army, Haskins did not have much to lose.“I’ve done that before where you put a guy in in the second quarter of a game,” Meyer said. “We’re not at that point yet. But you’d like to do that.”Whether Haskins earns earlier playing time to test his readiness or not, he is likely to remain backup quarterback. Instead of a battle to become the starter, he might re-enter a competition with redshirt sophomore Joe Burrow, who is about ready to return to action.Burrow broke a bone in his throwing hand near the end of fall camp. Before the past two games, he threw passes in pregame warmups, but he has yet to be listed on a depth chart due to the injury.“We’ve got to make some decisions who is the first one in there,” Meyer said. “Last year was very important to get Joe in the game and he did pretty well when he was in there as well. So, that is so important for backup quarterback spot.”In the spring and fall, Burrow and Haskins entrenched themselves in a battle to back up Barrett. In the spring game, Burrow went 14-for-22 for 262 yards with three touchdowns, while Haskins completed 26-of-37 passes and added three touchdowns.The primary backup last season, Burrow played in five games and completed 22-of-28 passes for 226 yards and threw two touchdown passes. A dual threat, similar to Barrett, Burrow rushed 12 times for 58 yards and a touchdown. read more
