USA Boxing sucker-punches Tyson

Also Galaxy Coach Bruce Arena suspended for game against Chivas USA Donovan tied Jeff Cunningham for the MLS all-time scoring record of 134 regular-season goals. Donovan, speaking about holding the record outright with his next goal, said “it would be nice to get it and get it out of the way so that there’s no attention on it.” He added: I would trade, maybe not all of them, but most of them for another championship ring.” When the game ended, the Galaxy was tied with the Colorado Rapids for fourth place with 48 points in the Western Conference. The two teams were only four points behind first-place Real Salt Lake , three points behind second-place Seattle and one point behind third-place Portland, which was playing Vancouver on Sunday night. The top five teams at the end of the regular season qualify for the playoffs. The Galaxy, seeking its third consecutive MLS championship, has three games left in the regular season. This was the third and final game of the regular season between the Galaxy and Chivas USA, which share StubHub Center as their home venue, in what’s known as the “SuperClasico” series. The Galaxy overwhelmed Chivas USA despite the absence of Coach Bruce Arena, who was suspended for the game for leaving the coach’s area during an argument at the previous weekend’s game against Portland. With Dave Sarachan, the team’s associate coach, at the helm, the Galaxy scored in the sixth minute when Keane, standing just inside the six-yard box, took a pass from Donovan and rolled the ball past goalkeeper Dan Kennedy. Donovan scored his first goal in the 23rd minute inside the six-yard box after taking a cross from Zardes, and Zardes scored in the 26th minute when he outdueled Mario de Luna, got free and kicked the ball past Kennedy. Donovan’s second goal came in the 42nd minute after he caught up with a looping, perfectly placed pass in front of him from Pablo Mastroeni, and Keane scored his second in the 90th minute. “We’re at a point where we needed three points,” Sarachan said. “It gets us closer to a playoff position.” Four Galaxy players are called up to national teams Four Galaxy players were called to their national teams for upcoming World Cup qualifiers: Donovan and Omar Gonzales for the United States, Keane for Ireland and goalkeeper Jaime Penedo for Panama.

The Voice - Season 5

“If you have money and would like to assist these young athletes and the sport, you should donate for athletes’ stipends to support the training of these boxers and help your country regain its prominence on the medal stand.” Now, no one in their right (or left) hemisphere would say Mike Tyson is walking around with a halo hovering over his head as he tries to get his post-Broadway career off the ground by getting into boxing promotions. [+] Enlarge AP/Richard Shotwell/Invision USA Boxing sent an open letter to Mike Tyson, asking him to wait until after the 2016 Rio Games to sign the country’s top amateur fighters. But if Tyson wants to move past pigeon-racing reality shows on Animal Plant or another academy award-winning guest appearance in “The Hangover IV: A New Hope” and make his move to be the next Don King, who are we — or USA Boxing — to complain? Tyson has done so well with his life since he left the sport (as long as he does not revert to the misbehavior he exhibited after longtime trainer Cus D’Amato died, then all is good). But this isn’t about Tyson or his response to Butler’s letter in the New York Post claiming the organization never reached out to him directly and is “taking advantage of my name and company for publicity.” This is about USA Boxing. When did USA Boxing become so sanctimonious? So righteous and indignant? Boxing promoters have perpetually gone after amateur boxers in an attempt to get them to skip the Olympic route. For years, promoters have used everything from Muhammad Ali throwing his gold medal into the Ohio River to the image of Roy Jones Jr. standing next to a ref as he lifted the arm of Park Si-Hun in the Seoul Olympics (considered by many as one of the most corrupt moments in Olympic history) as examples of the unimportance of the Olympics in the arc of one’s career. More recently, promoters simply need to run off the names of top boxers who didn’t need an Olympic medal to succeed as a pro — Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto, Juan Manuel Marquez, Adrien Broner, Timothy Bradley — to prove that participating in the Olympics is as useful as an iPhone 3GS. After Athens 2004, USA Boxing had been able to say to every American who has thought about joining them: “Look at Andre Ward’s career, and we’ll show you how Ward benefited from being in the Olympics.” But when a country goes through an entire Olympics as the United States did at London 2012 and returns without a single medal, the sell gets difficult. Tyson is doing nothing different from any other promoter in the game since boxing became a free enterprise for promotion and hype. Boxing promoters from Butch Lewis to Bob Arum have always “poached” boxers they feel can make them money sooner rather than later. It’s their way of building a relationship with a boxer before anyone else has the chance.
