BMW Open quarterfinals in Munich. Rosol bumped into Murray during a change of ends, prompting a heated response from Murray
With three mandatory title bouts facing a Monday deadline before purse bids, one bout was agreed to and the other two were auctioned off at WBA headquarters in Panama City, Panama. Nike Air Force 1 Dame .Representatives for bantamweight world titleholder Raushee Warren (14-1, 4 KOs), of Cincinnati, and secondary titleholder Jamie McDonnell (28-2-1, 13 KOs), of England, made a deal. The details of when and where the fight will take place were not immediately announced, but it likely will take place this fall in the United Kingdom.Warren, 29, a three-time U.S. Olympian, won the 118-pound belt by majority decision in a rematch with Juan Carlos Payano on June 18 in Chicago.McDonnell (28-2-1, 13 KOs), 30, has defended his version of the belt four times, but the WBA, which has for years sanctioned three belts in the same division, said recently that it plans to reduce the number of titles it hands out and has been ordering fights that will eliminate the extra belts in each division.Warren-McDonnell is one of them.Promotional rights for two other fights, interim heavyweight titlist Luis King Kong Ortiz (25-0, 22 KOs) against 39-year-old Alexander Ustinov (33-1, 24 KOs), and secondary junior middleweight titleholder Jack Culcay (22-1, 11 KOs) versus former titleholder Demetrius Andrade (23-0, 16 KOs), were auctioned to the highest bidder.Vlad Hrunov, bidding on behalf of Russian promoter Andrey Ryabinskys World of Boxing, was the only bidder for Ortiz-Ustinov, winning with the minimum allowable bid of $600,000. Ortiz is entitled to 60 percent, meaning he will earn $360,000, and Ustinov is entitled to 40 percent, meaning his purse will be $240,000.Hrunov told ESPN.com that the fight is penciled in to take place on Nov. 19 in Moscow, Las Vegas or Minsk, Belarus, where Russian native Ustinov lives.However, Hrunov said there is a good chance that the fight will land at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and take place on the HBO PPV card headlined by unified light heavyweight titleholder Sergey Kovalev taking on former super middleweight champion Andre Ward in one of the years most anticipated matches.Ortiz-Ustinov had already been agreed to and was ticketed to take place Sept. 17 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on the HBO PPV undercard of Canelo Alvarez-Liam Smith.However, Ortiz, a 37-year-old southpaw, who defected from Cuba and lives in Miami, is in a contract dispute over his purse with his promoter, Golden Boy, and pulled out of the fight, forcing the purse bid.But Golden Boy did not bid, a clear indication that the sides are working on a settlement to go their separate ways.Sauerland Event, which promotes Culcay, won the rights to the bout with Andrade. It offered $425,000, which easily beat the only other offer, which was $201,000 made by Andrade co-promoter Artie Pelullo of Banner Promotions. The minimum bid was $150,000.Culcay is entitled to 75 percent of the winning bid ($318,750) and Andrade ($106,250) will get 25 percent.Culcay, 30, a native of Ecuador who fights out of Germany, was elevated from an interim titlist to full titleholder earlier this year.Andrade, a 28-year-old southpaw from Providence, Rhode Island, who represented the United States at the 2008 Olympics, beat Culcay in the 2007 World Amateur Championship on his way to a gold medal in that tournament, the most prestigious amateur tournament other than the Olympics.Don Majeski, bidding on behalf of Sauerland Event, told ESPN.com the bout would take place either in late October or early November in Germany.We lost the purse bid, but we are looking forward to the fight, Pelullo told ESPN.com. We wanted to make a deal, but it did not work out.Showtime is high on Andrade and televised his 12th-round knockout of Willie Nelson on June 11, his network debut.Pelullo said the network made a commitment to Andrade, but with the fight against Culcay ticketed to take place overseas, it remains to be seen what kind of American TV deal can be worked out. Air Max 360 .35 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration. Plouffe batted .254 with 14 home runs and 52 RBIs in 477 at-bats last season, his second as a regular in the lineup. Nike Air Force 1 Low Dame . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. http://www.airforceonedanmark.com/air-ma...n-sko-dame.html .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. NEW YORK -- Andy Murray gave a stark pause at his news conference when he was asked, bluntly, if he feels he is in the latter stages of his career.He took a few seconds to think over his answer, then gave an equally blunt answer.Well, Im 29. I would imagine if Im lucky Id be playing at this level for three, four more years, max, I would think, said Murray. I mean, its not easy to do that. I hope Im still playing like this when Im 38 years old, but its pretty unlikely.Im actually using that as a positive that you have to make the most of every opportunity. Its a slightly different mentality to maybe when youre younger and you feel like you have a bit more time on your side.I want to make the most of every tournament I play in and try and win and achieve as much as I can the next few years.Just as Murray took his opportunity at Wimbledon to end a three-year wait for a third major, with Novak Djokovic falling surprisingly early and Roger Federer going out in the semifinals, he has another prime chance here at the US Open to add a fourth Grand Slam title.Djokovic missed the Cincinnati Masters with a wrist injury he picked up before the Olympics in Rio, where the world No. 1 was stunned by Juan Martin del Potro in the first round, and he admitted he is still struggling with the issue.Rafael Nadal is working his way back to full fitness after his own wrist injury, which saw him miss the French Open and Wimbledon, while Federer is not even here because of his knee problem.And Murray, seeded second, knows his time is now.I dont know how hes [Djokovic] feeling. If hes playing here he must be feeling pretty good, said the world No. 2. Sometimes when you play a lot of tennis, like Novak has, you can pick up niggles, and sometimes your body does need a break as much as anything.Rafas been a bit unfortunate the last couple of years with a number of different issues. Hes had the wrist and a few other health problems, as well. Its been a tough couple of years for him.Theyre both in the top half. Them having wrist problems doesnt affect my chances of getting to the final. I wouldnt have to play them in that stage, anyway. So just have to wait and see. I think Rafa pretty much proved his fitness in Rio playing a lot of tennis with winning thhe doubles and also playing as many matches as anyone there. Air Max 97 Silver Bulle. And singles, as well.And then Novak obviously missed Cincinnati, but only a few weeks ago he was playing in Canada, as well. Hes played I think enough matches. Its just whether hes fully recovered. We will see that whenever he plays.After the emotional high of winning back-to-back Olympic singles gold medals, Murrays 22-match win streak was ended by Marin Cilic in the Cincinnati Masters final. But he got some much-needed rest after arriving in New York on Sunday, taking both Monday and Tuesday off.It was hard going from Rio to Cincinnati. I didnt feel great when I was there, he added. Luckily I won a few quick matches, and that helped.But I was tired in Cincinnati and I was really pumped that I got to the final. I didnt expect that the way I arrived from Rio and how I was feeling after that. Thats why this week, it was very important to rest, take time to let your body recover. Its just as important to do the training you do away from the court.Thats something that I have learned as I got older; whereas before when I was younger it was different. I trained sometimes too much maybe and didnt listen to my body enough. Yeah, it was a good few weeks in Rio and Cincinnati.Its just been pretty light, light practice. I havent done anything away from the court, training, nothing like that. Just trying to be as fresh as I can at the start of the tournament.Murray, seeded second, starts against Lukas Rosol and there was some bad blood in their last meeting at the 2015 BMW Open quarterfinals in Munich. Rosol bumped into Murray during a change of ends, prompting a heated response from Murray, who said: No one likes you on the tour. Everyone hates you.The Scot played it a bit more diplomatically here.I spoke to him after the match. It was fine, said Murray. Afterwards I just -- obviously a few things happened when we were on the court. But, yeah, we spoke after the match and that was it. I have actually gotten along fine with him apart from that day, and hes tough, tough opponent. Big, strong guy; goes for his shots; takes a lot of risks.
