The belligerent Dillian Whyte gets smarter with every contest and the heavyweight capped a brilliant year with a third victory and a second triumph over compatriot and rival Dereck Chisora here in a pulsating event at the O2 Arena. This contest was just a tad shorter, but no less brutal than their first war over 12-rounds in December 2018. No less entertaining either. Astute and aware from first to last, Whyte finished this second war with a hellacious left hook, which left Chisora on his back from the minute it landed. Whyte immediately called out Anthony Joshua afterwards for a brawl at Wembley Stadium in April, but there was no clear answer either from Joshua, ringside, or both fighters' promoter Eddie Hearn. The fight was so, so close. When Chisora was knocked out, the Finchley man was ahead on two of the judges' cards. But in that 11th round, just a minute before the chilling left hook denouement, referee Marcus McDonnell had punished Chisora with a point … [Read more...] about Dillian Whyte knocks out Dereck Chisora in 11th round after exhausting battle at O2 Arena

My first World Cup memories go back to 1966 when I would have been 10 and at a stage in my childhood where I was really becoming obsessed with football. While some of my recollection of detail would be a bit sketchy after all these years, I can still clearly remember England winning and the brilliance of Bobby Charlton, Pele literally getting kicked out of the tournament, and Eusebio emerging as one of the world greats. As a lover of football and as a player who tried over more than a dozen years to help Ireland qualify for a place on the greatest stage of all, the World Cup has always loomed large in my life, so it pleases me very much to be able to say that I regard Russia 2018 as the best tournament I have seen since the famous one in Mexico in 1970 when Pele bounced back from the disappointment of four years earlier as the iconic figure in a celebrated Brazil side which, playing a dazzling brand of football, won the Jules Rimet for the third time. There might not have been any team … [Read more...] about Battle of tiny giants crowns best World Cup since 1970
It was 10am and, breakfast barely digested, we were in the thick of a medieval battle. With surprisingly little need for guidance, our children had swiftly managed to construct four giant catapults from logs, rope, masking tape and kitchen colanders, out of which they were launching sodden sponges across a boggy field. It was the Blue Peter craft model that never was. What had begun as an ice-breaking exercise in team-building, with spotters, shooters and captains each tasked with yelling such satisfying commands as “Load!” “Clear!” and “Fire!” had fast become something of a free-for-all. A mutinous water fight ensued, with Sam the instructor inevitably relegated from teacher to target. He did a deft job of retaining a game smile under a remarkably vicious barrage of soggy bathroom sponges. But then this is what Sam, and the two other “animateurs”, were there for: to monitor, motivate and, if need be, be moving targets for our … [Read more...] about How France made our family’s first adventure holiday a success
ISTANBUL/ LONDON Turkey’s record-low lira was among a host of heavyweight emerging market currencies pinned to the canvas on May 16 after the dollar put on another show of strength. A rout that has taken hold in poorer economies in recent weeks was showing little sign of easing, having been compounded by another push up in global borrowing costs and generous helpings of political strife. The dollar held firm near a five-month high on May 16 helped by gains in long-term U.S. Treasury yields. The lira, which along with Argentina’s peso has been at the heart of the storm, slipped toward 4.5 to the dollar and hit a new low versus the euro after President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said he would take more control of interest rates if he wins elections next month as expected. Erdoğan, in an interview with Bloomberg Television on May 15, said the Turkish Central Bank, while independent, would not be able to ignore signals from the new executive presidency that comes into … [Read more...] about Turkish Lira on the ropes amid worries, dollar rally
