I don’t want you to get hurt — I want you to stop now’.“It was horrible. But I had to explain that I am just not finished with this sport yet.“So I  promised him that as soon as I achieve my dream and win that world title, I will quit. I won’t carry on for money or fame, I will get out and be a full-time father.“I have always had my mum and wife worry about me and ask about retiring — but it was different hearing it from my son.“It was just a terrible feeling but it will motivate me even more to reach my goal and get out safe.”The lightweight division has a brilliant crop of youngsters, including 21-year-old Garcia, 21-year-old Devin Haney and Teofimo Lopez, 22. All three have giant social media followings, Garcia has 6.6millionInstagram followers and recently went viral with a clip of him punching YouTube celebrity Jake Paul.Haney is a Floyd Mayweather protege who is being compared to legend Sugar Ray Leonard.But baby-faced veteran Campbell wants to be the man to upset the odds.He said: “I like Lopez, we have sparred and he has beaten some real contenders, the other two I am not so sure about“Garcia has speed and power  — but also looks like he could take a good beating.“I still feel fresh and I am ready to be the bogeyman for these new kids on the block, I feel I am the toughest fight for all these guys.“Garcia was supposed to fight on July 4 against Abner Mares, who usually fights at featherweight and has not boxed in two years, but he pulled out because the money was not good enough.“Well I am no featherweight and I am raring to go — so I will be a nightmare for him.”Luke Campbell is determined to win a world titleCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd last_img read more

Captain Misbah hits century as Pakistan rally against England

first_imgCaptain Misbah hits century as Pakistan rally against EnglandBy Matt SmithPakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq made an unbeaten century as the resurgent hosts reached 282-4 at close of the opening day of the second Test against England in Dubai on Thursday.Following a draw in the series opener, Misbah helped steady his side after two brilliant morning catches by the indomitable Jonny Bairstow and James Anderson’s 418th Test wicket from the first ball of the afternoon had reduced Pakistan to 85-3.At that moment, Misbah, 41, may have been regretting his decision to bat after winning the toss, but he and Younis Khan (56) put on 93 from 179 balls before Pakistan’s record run scorer was caught behind by England wicketkeeper Joss Buttler off Mark Wood.Asad Shafiq, 46 not out, joined Misbah at the crease. The skipper will resume on 102 after chalking up a ninth Test century by slogging Moeen Ali for 15 off the day’s final over that included two sixes.Pakistan, playing in their adopted home of the UAE, were heavy favourites going into the series after whitewashing England 3-0 here in 2012.Yet the tourists were disappointed not to seal an unlikely win in Abu Dhabi last week, bad light stopping play when England were 25 runs from victory with six wickets in hand after a frenzied final day.In Dubai, Pakistan again batted first on expectation the pitch would become harder to play as the Test progresses.Openers Shan Masood and Mohammad Hafeez raced to 47-0 from 15 overs after making only two runs in the first three overs.England captain Alastair Cook, who named an unchanged side, switched seamers Anderson and Stuart Broad with spinner Moeen and paceman Mark Wood as he sought an early breakthrough.Moeen struck first, tricking Hafeez (19) into edging a turning delivery onto his pads. The ball looped up for Bairstow to make a diving catch as Pakistan slipped to 51-1.Next in was Shoaib Malik but he lasted only nine balls for his two before trudging back to the pavilion.The all-rounder, a double-centurion in Abu Dhabi, slogged at Ben Stokes and the ball cannoned off Bairstow’s midriff at short-leg.The fielder’s reactions were cat-like as he sprang forward to snatch a one-handed catch.Pakistan progressed to 85-2 at lunch but immediately after the interval Anderson fooled Masood (54) into nicking a ball into Buttler’s gloves, which lifted the 33-year-old to ninth on Test cricket’s all-time wicket-taking list.That proved to be rare moment of afternoon joy for England as Pakistan exploited the tourists’ aggressive close field to score briskly.Adil Rashid – who veered between hopeless and mesmeric in the first Test – again struggled, the leg-spinner ending on 0-60 from 13 overs.Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah, the fastest man to 50 Test wickets in his country’s history, returned to the hosts’ line-up after missing the first test with a back injury, Rahat Ali making way.Sharjah will stage the final Test from November 1.last_img read more

Mourinho sacks substandard United ball boys

first_imgThe Mirror reported that previously the club’s ball boys were being supplied by the Manchester United Foundation, but have been replaced by players from United’s under-16s, who Mourinho felt have a better feel for the game.The change was made ahead of the recent 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Old Trafford, with Mourinho’s patience running out after a 2-0 win over Hull in the EFL Cup earlier in January.Quoting a United source, the report said: “The manager wasn’t happy with what was on offer before from the ball boys and girls. He wanted a much slicker operation — especially when United are on the attack or time is running out.“He felt by bringing in lads from the Academy teams — boys who understand the nuances of the game and the urgency of certain occasions, it would help speed up play at crucial moments.“Of course, people may speculate whether opponents are given the same courtesy if they are on the attack or chasing the game.”It’s not the first time that Mourinho has become involved in matters related to ball boys.He once lectured a Crystal Palace ball boy for slowing down play, and when at Chelsea he mocked Newcastle United and Leicester ball boys for time wasting.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho leaves the pitch at the end of the English FA Cup third round football match between Manchester United and Reading at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on January 7, 2017MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Jan 22- Manchester United’s ball boys have been replaced after they failed to lived up to the expectations of Jose Mourinho.The Red Devils’ boss is known as a man who likes to have things his way, and he reportedly decided to sack the Old Trafford ball fetchers after he felt that they didn’t really understand the game and were slow to return the ball when United were on the attack or toward the end of games where the home side needed a goal.last_img read more
