Man City Survive Dortmund Scare to Secure Semi-final Spot

Manchester City reached the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time under Pep Guardiola after beating Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in Germany, winning the tie 4-2 on aggregate.

Guardiola has seen his City team knocked out at the quarter-final stage in the last three seasons and must have been fearing the worst again, but Emre Can handed the visitors a lifeline when handling a cross. Riyad Mahrez stroked home from the penalty spot (55) before Phil Foden hammered in a second (75) from the edge of the area to rubberstamp the v...

WBC, Ring Magazine and Linear boxing Champion, Tyson Fury has revealed he has spoken to rival Deontay Wilder once, since beating him in February ahead of a rematch in December. Since Wilder lost his WBC crown to Fury in humiliating fashion, he has been silent as the December target date for their trilogy fight draws closer, prompting speculation that he might not take the fight. Fury and Wilder regularly exchanged tweets and text messages over the years but according to Fury, Wilder has gone quiet after he face-timed him in March to insult him.     When asked if he’s heard from Wilder about the trilogy, Fury told White and Jordan on talkSPORT: “I’ve not heard a thing. “He took a FaceTime from me in March. “I called him a bit of a big dosser and then h...

Azarenka digs deep to beat Serena, enters US Open final

Serena Williams was beaten 1-6 6-3 6-3 in the semifinals of the U.S. Open by Victoria Azarenka on Thursday, denying her the chance of winning a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles title on home soil this year. Azarenka will play Japan's Naomi Osaka on Saturday in her third final at Flushing Meadows, having lost the previous two to Williams in 2012 and 2013. Azarenka said her mental game had been crucial in beating the 38-year-old Williams, who needed a medical timeout to have her left ankle re-taped in the third set due to Achilles trouble. “I have been working on finding a calm mind and keep the body going,” the Belarusian said in an on-court interview. “She dug me in a big hole in the first set. I needed to find energy to climb out of the hole and it wasn't easy.” Six-...

Beating Mike Tyson Was A Dream Come True – Danny Williams

Danny Williams, 47, was born British. He is a retired heavyweight boxer whose exploits in the ring made him one of the most popular British boxers of his day. Right now, Williams has called time with boxing. Except, perhaps, until he is called to assist younger and aspiring boxers at clinics as an instructor, the former British heavyweight champion says he has nothing left to offer in the fistic art of self-defence. “My boxing career is over,” he declared. Born to a Jamaican mother and a father of Nigerian descent, the retired boxer feels that at his age, even though he has called it quits from boxing, he still has a hidden talent which is yet to be explored to the full. What he intends doing is far from the boxing ring. He wants to go into a new field altogether. “I want to go ...

A French paedophile who faced death by firing squad in Indonesia has killed himself in prison after being accused of molesting more than 300 children and beating those who refused to have sex with him. 65-year-old Francois Camille Abello was found last Thursday unresponsive inside his cell at a detention centre in Jakarta, said police spokesman Yusri Yunus.

My Mother Gave Me The Beating Of My Life, When I Started Acting – Omotola Jalade Reveals

Beautiful Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has revealed how she was severely beaten by her mother on many occasions at the beginning of her career. According to her in an interview to mark her 25 years in the industry, being called an actress when she started in 1995 was not as prestigious as now. Jalade-Ekeinde, who is popularly known as Omo Sexy, said it was therefore hard for many parents to permit their children to become actors. She disclosed that her mother gave her the beating of her life on many occasions at the outset of her career. Comparing the Nollywood of the 90s to now, Jalade-Ekeinde stated, “It’s quite complicated. I guess then we were all working for the love of it. “Money was not the motivation because there was not much prestige to it. You cou...
