He doesn’t exactly shrug when questioned about it, but it’s clear Triple G is not foremost on his mind.For now.“It is no secret we want to win this fight and then come back to our division, 160 pounds,” he said. “But we can make combinations between 160 and 168. We will see what the future has … but I can guarantee we will go back to 160 pounds.“We had two good fights … maybe in 2019 we can have a third fight. We’ll see. Right now, I am 100 percent focused on Saturday. What I do know is I will fight in May and September next year. What I will do is give great fights to the public.”NOTES: The main undercard fight of Canada’s David Lemieux against Tureano Johnson has been canceled after Lemieux was hospitalized with dehydration issues while trying to make weight.A former middleweight champion, Lemieux always has struggled to make the 160-pound limit. But he was in line for a possible fight with Alvarez if he fought impressively on Saturday. In his last fight, he knocked out Gary O’Sullivan in the first round on the Alvarez-Golovkin card in September.

(AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)NEW YORK — In an odd way, there is more pressure on Canelo Alvarez when he fights Saturday night against unheralded Rocky Fielding than there was in his two matchups with Gennady Golovkin.A loss to the WBA super middleweight champion not only could taint his decision over Golovkin this year, it could significantly muddle the future for the Mexican star.ADVERTISEMENT TS Kammuri to enter PAR possibly a day after SEA Games opening Alvarez moves up from 160 pounds to 168 in search of a third division title, which would place him in special company among his countrymen — only eight others have held three division crowns. That’s the quest at Madison Square Garden against Fielding, a heavy underdog despite owning the belt.“For me it is very big to enter that select group of Mexicans who have become three-division world champions,” Alvarez said. “It is what is motivating me. It is very important to enter into that list of very big fighters from Mexico … to enter history, that is what I want, to make history. Making history, the door is almost open. So I am very motivated to win this fight.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefAs for moving up in weight but down in class — no one is comparing England’s Fielding (27-1, 15 knockouts) to Golovkin — Alvarez insists there are no worries. He’s not going to be looking ahead to his 2019 schedule just yet.“I never like to get overconfident, whether I am the favorite or not,” said Alvarez, who is 50-1-2, the only defeat to Floyd Mayweather five years ago, when Alvarez wasn’t quite ready for such a master boxer. “To me it is not important who is favored. For boxing, one punch can change everything; anything can happen in the ring. I get my confidence in training for what I can do in the ring.” Hotel management clarifies SEAG footballers’ kikiam breakfast issue Is Luis Manzano planning to propose to Jessy Mendiola? LOOK: Joyce Pring goes public with engagement to Juancho Triviño On the cusp of a title What he can do in the ring is punch with power, defend with elan, attack quickly or stealthily. It’s not likely that Fielding, making his first title defense, has seen anything like Canelo in the ring.Fielding upset Tyron Zeuge in Germany on July 14 with a fifth-round knockout. This is his shot at the big time at age 31 — sure sounds like a Rocky story.So while the only time he’s seen a sports event at the Garden was a Knicks game three years ago — Alvarez also is making his MSG debut — Fielding isn’t letting on if he has any stage fright.“You know, I went to Germany and no one gave me a chance there,” he said with a smile. “It’s the same here. No one gives me a chance here, but I’ve prepared well, I believe in myself. I’ve come here as a champion.”Alvarez, 28, comes in as a much more heralded champion. Some consider him the best in the business these days, and he’s got some impressive victories on his resume. In addition to a win and draw over Golovkin, Alvarez has beaten Miguel Cotto, Amir Khan, Erislandy Lara, Shane Mosley and Austin Trout. More than a few observers question whether Fielding could handle any of them, let alone Canelo.ADVERTISEMENT Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting MOST READ SEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionlast_img read more

first_img​WOMEN’S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Beckie hat-trick as Man City cruise past Luganoby Ian Ferrisa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City duly booked their place in the last 16 with a 4-0 win on the night and 11-1 on aggregate over Luganao at the Academy Stadium.After a 7-1 victory in the first leg City were always favourites to progress and will hope they can eventually go one better then the two semi-final defeats over the last couple of seasons.Any hopes of a shock comeback by Lugano evaporated after just 5 minutes when Janine Beckie was put through to chip over the advancing keeper Morgan Bertsch.The rest of the half was City dominating possession in what was becoming a glorified practise game. Yet for all this there was little goalmouth action before Beckie doubled the host’s advantage on 33 minutes.It was almost three but Bertsch made a fine save from a close range Steph Houghton header.City increased their lead at the beginning of the second half as Beckie claimed her hat-trick following some sloppy defending and a fortunate rebound.The visitors are struggling in the league back home and this lack of quality was evident in their failure to trouble City.After a sustained period of uneventful play number four arrived from substitute Pauline Bremer who rounded the keeper to slide home.So City continue their 100% start to the season but know their will be tougher games ahead starting at the weekend when they play Everton in a top of the table Super League fixture.Full Time Man City: 4 (Beckie 5, 33, 48 Bremer 78)Lugano: 0Aggregate: Man City 11Lugano 1Att: 949Venue: Academy Stadium TagsPremiership NewsAbout the authorIan FerrisShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Trial resumes for Dalhousie student charged in the death of fellow student

first_imgHALIFAX – The trial resumes today for a former medical school student charged in the death of another university student whose body has never been found.A jury heard last week that William Sandeson was panicked and incoherent as he tried to clean up around a man’s blood-covered body in his Halifax apartment.Justin Blades testified that he was visiting a mutual friend across the hall from Sandeson when he heard a gunshot on Aug. 15, 2015.Sandeson is accused of murdering 22-year-old Taylor Samson, a fellow Dalhousie University student, during a deal to buy 20 pounds of marijuana.Blades told the Nova Scotia Supreme Court jury his life changed the night he saw a pool of blood, bloodied cash, drugs and a body slumped over a chair, bleeding from the head.Defence lawyer Eugene Tan has questioned Blades on his recollection of the night, referring to a statement he gave police in 2016 in which he said he didn’t believe Sandeson was the shooter.last_img read more
