So here is a round-up of what has been said about what is already one of the most talked about fights in history. " McGregor has a lot of confidence because of what he's achieved in the UFC but he's not getting in there with a domestic-level fighter, he's getting in there with one of the greatest fighters of all time".

And contrary to rational thought, at least some industry insiders are expecting a Mayweather-McGregor fight to rival the revenue generated by Mayweather-Pacquiao, despite this fight being an objectively lopsided mismatch. White added: "Conor has done a lot of good things for the sport and this company". No conformation has been provided at this time from Mayweather Promotions, UFC, Showtime or the fighters.

He seems very settled with us and towards the end of the season he came back (from injury) and did well. "I hope to see that together we can give everything to win something for the club, for the supporters and for us". "I'm very excited to be here". "His record in Italy has been outstanding and he possesses qualities that will enhance our team and squad".

The Wolves drafted Arizona sharpshooter Lauri Markkanen for the Bulls at No. 7 and the Bulls took Creighton forward Justin Patton at No. 16 for the Wolves. That's a pretty superb starting lineup. Dunn is a player that did not really show anything in his rookie season with Minnesota . But the only way a deal can go down between the two is something tempting. Read More »

Pakistan punish errant England to enter maiden CT final

When asked how Pakistan managed to score at 5.7 runs an over on the same surface that England had managed just 211 on in nearly 50 overs, Morgan replied: "I think the explanation is they played two days ago on it". "It was very hard to let the ball come on and hit through the line". He got out on 57 off 58 balls. England took a final punch in the guts: a no-ball was called against Stokes because England had six fielders on the leg side, rather than the maximum five permitted. Read More »

Lakers great Magic Johnson picks successor in Lonzo Ball

And in discussing Ball's ability as a passer, Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka made a comparison that resulted in a few raised eyebrows. Fultz averaged 23.2 points last season, tops among freshmen, and added 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game, the only Division I player to reach those stats. Read More »

Wolves Acquire Jimmy Butler From The Chicago Bulls

According to a report from ESPN's Marc Stein , the Timberwolves were close to a deal for Butler as the draft started, and things apparently escalated rather quickly. Butler was in Paris with a group of National Basketball Association players when learning about the deal.

Quenneville said Hossa's reliability in all game situations is rare for a player with his skill level and will be greatly missed. The winger registered 45 points in 73 contests this past year while averaging 16:51 of ice time - production that will be sorely missed in Chicago . Read More »

Jackson said the incident "wasn't as bad as everybody made it out to be. I did", he said. "I'm here with my family, and it can't be better than that". "He does a good job of handling it, getting to the basket and getting to spots on the floor that a lot of point guards can't". Jackson took McDonald's All-American honors, becoming the first Utahn to be selected to the prestigious roster in Chicago since Brighton's Garner Mead in 2000. Read More »

perth_map

Has Sexton pipped Farrell for the 10 shirt? In the midfield, former NRL player Ben Te'o and Jonathan Davies will be relied upon to put the Lions on the front foot, with George North and Anthony Watson outside them on each wing. For Sam now it's just about keeping getting game time if he can. "We need to adapt to that and make sure we work really hard over the next couple of weeks to rectify an issue - if there is one - at scrum time". Read More »

Markelle Fultz goes No. 1 to 76ers

It's like people who watch CSPAN to see the party whip in action before a vote. Even more rare, it is the first time the WNBA and National Basketball Association top selection hailed from the same school. And I'm saying "like" because there's more caveats than the tax code. "We are a team on the rise in so many different ways. Why history has already been made" class="local_link" >first-round picks in our live tracker, including the lottery selections from the Los Angeles Lakers and Knicks . Read More »

He is definitely going to be trading some of these players for more assets, but at what point would he have been better off just taking guys from the exposed list and not taking side deals? Among all Predators players, only Filip Forsberg had more over that span. Read More »

perth_map

And according to a person with knowledge of the situation, Butler welcomes the move to Minnesota to join his old coach and a team loaded with young talent in Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. Butler averaged 23.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists last season and has made the all-defense second team three times. This trade certainly indicates Thibodeau, now Minnesota's president-coach, better knew what he was doing. Read More »

Bulls waited a year to make the same awful Jimmy Butler trade

Butler has at least two years left on his contract, and also has a working history with Wolves top decision maker Tom Thibodeau from their Bulls days. James, who is often referred to as the Cavs real general manager, doesn't seem to be pleased, and he certainly seemed more irked about it on social media in comparison to when David Blatt was sacked last season.

Can the Lions beat New Zealand?

Rowntree, meanwhile, has no doubt about the Test team attributes of England internationals and first-time Lions tourists Ben Te'o and Jamie George , who have both made head coach Warren Gatland's starting line-up. But if Gatland is to be taken at his word, the Lions won't simply aim to kick and maul the All Blacks to death. I know they are pretty friendly unless they are in white and green. Read More »
