Jacobs easily outpoints Arias in return to ring

first_imgAlejandro cherishes time with Jarin: ‘He’s like a father figure to us’ “I want to stay active, we have major plans,” the 30-year-old Jacobs said. “We are going to invade Canada so they can see my face, and I will call them out later.”Arias, 18-1 of Milwaukee, annoyed Jacobs at times with his style, but Jacobs never was in anything but control.Most of that aggression came late as Jacobs searched for the shot that would stop Arias. That punch never came, but it didn’t matter.Wearing trunks with the name of his young son, Nate, sewn on the belt, Jacobs entered the ring with a grin, and kept smiling throughout introductions. He was grimacing at points during the fight, but only because of the way Arias was carrying himself.When Arias attempted to hug Jacobs after the 12th round, Jacobs refused.ADVERTISEMENT “We are in there to hurt each other, but it took me a couple minutes to get it out of my system,” Jacobs said.On the HBO undercard before 6,921 at Nassau Coliseum — the former home of the NHL’s Islanders — Long Island welterweight Cletus Seldin battered Mexico’s Roberto Ortiz for most of three rounds before a deep cut on Ortiz’s right eye and cheek caused a stoppage. Seldin, a Long Islander who has a loud following at the arena, knocked down Ortiz twice in the opening round, using powerful right hands.Seldin is 21-0 with 17 knockouts as he climbs the welterweight division. Ortiz fell to 35-2-2 and complained that Seldin’s elbow opened the cut further in the third round.Seldin, naturally, disagreed.“You could see how rough and tough and old school the fight was,” Seldin said.Another local fighter, Jarell Miller of Brooklyn, had little trouble with Poland’s Mariusz Wach in a heavyweight bout stopped in the ninth round by the ring doctor. Wach was taking a beating from the undefeated Miller (20-0-1, 18 knockouts), who consistently got inside to land right uppercuts.Miller was far ahead on the scorecards and could be in line for a title fight next year with either Deontay Wilder or Anthony Joshua. He’ll need to show more movement and speed than he did Saturday night for that to be a prosperous venture.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales? In his return to the ring since an outstanding performance in a loss to champion Gennady Golovkin in March, Jacobs easily swept the judges’ cards, though he often was frustrated by the holding tactics and unorthodox style of Arias. Seeking a knockout in the final rounds, Jacobs punished Arias in the 10th, 11th and 12th, and earned a knockdown that looked more like a slip in the 11th.“I wanted to impress the fans and put on a good show,” Jacobs said. “I hurt him early and once I knew I could hurt him, I got a little more aggressive.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogJacobs, a former world champion and one of New York’s most popular fighters, is 33-2 with 29 KOs. He is hopeful of another shot at a title in 2018, though Golovkin will be busy with a rematch with Canelo Alvarez after their draw in September.Jacobs, who overcame bone cancer earlier in his career and is nicknamed “Miracle Man,” held the WBA belt for two years. He remained a force in the division even after his close defeat to Triple G. Next up could be either David Lemieux of Canada or Billy Joe Saunders of England.

His goal is to get to East Lake for the FedEx Cup finale, and he is well on his way with two victories so early in the season.“One win doesn’t necessarily mean a whole lot,” Kizzire said. “Two means a little more, and three is even better. I’m always looking for the next one. I’m super excited right now.”Missing from the playoff was Tom Hoge, who did everything right in his bid to win for the first time on the PGA Tour except for one swing. He had a one-shot lead when he was between clubs on the 16th hole, and opted to hit a draw to the back-left pin. He turned it too much and it found the bunker. His next shot got hung up in the shaggy rough, he chipped that to 12 feet and missed to make double bogey to slip one shot behind.Hoge gave himself two good chances with putts of about 7 feet. Both burned the edge. He shot 70 and had to settle for third place, his best finish on the PGA Tour.“This sets me up a lot better for the rest of the year, and hopefully made the FedEx Cup playoffs,” said Hoge, a 28-year-old from North Dakota who hasn’t kept his full card his previous three years on tour. “More so just the confidence I had to play in the final group and play well today.”Brian Harman, who played in the final group at both Hawaii events, was two shots behind after a tap-in birdie at No. 12. But he three-putted for bogey from long range on the 13th, took two shots to get out of the bunker left of the 16th green and had to settle for a 70. He tied for fourth.Defending champion Justin Thomas closed with a 68 and tied for 14th. Jordan Spieth finished with eight straight pars for a 66 and tied for 18th, ending his streak of seven consecutive top 10s dating to the PGA Championship in August.

Kizzire had two putts to win, though both of them were in the 30-foot range.“That playoff was quite a marathon,” Kizzire said.Hahn has won both his PGA Tour title in playoffs, at Riviera and Quail Hollow. Closing with a 62 to even have a chance was no consolation.“I played good enough to win, but I didn’t,” he said. “So for me, no matter how many birdies I make, if I’m not coming out of the room with the trophy, it really feels like I was defeated out there. I had a putt to win it.

She received the British Empire Medal (BEM) in the Queen’s birthday honours.Beanfeast, her Scottish charity fund, recently broke through the Stg£100,000 mark.Georgie, a farmer’s daughter from Fahan  was accompanied to the ceremony at Kilmardinny House in Bearsden by her son, William, her sister, Marjorie Nicol, and her friend, Desmond Armstrong, from Derry.Sheriff Simon Pender joined lawyers and court staff from Dumbarton’s courts as  Georgie was presented with her medal from the Queen. Deputy Lord Lieutenant Owen Sayers said the honour was presented in recognition of the work Georgie had done for the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS), which runs Robin House at Balloch.Mr Sayers said: “Georgie is a tireless fundraiser and volunteer and the money raised by her and her team have helped to provide essential care for children with life-limiting conditions and support their families.“Alongside supporting and promoting the hospices, she has raised the incredible amount of more than £100,000 so far by raising awareness of their work in the local community and through her management of the sheriff, high court and justice of the peace court tearoom.”Georgie, who retired from her work at Strathleven Bonded Warehouses in Dumbarton in 1995, was “absolutely delighted” with the honour.She said: “I could not do this work without the help of my dedicated band of volunteers.” She was voted Dumbarton’s Citizen of the Year in 2010 and is actively involved also in helping elderly people in the community as a member of the Senior Citizens’ Welfare Committee.DONEGAL WOMAN HONOURED FOR CHARITY WORK BY BRITAIN’S QUEEN was last modified: September 24th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BEMDunbartonGeorgie DuncanQueenlast_img read more
