McGregor confirms Pacquaio talk

first_imgRelatedPosts Sexual assault: McGregor awaits physical test, video evidence Sexual assault charge: UFC superstar denies allegation, released without charge Pacquiao drops Amir Khan in sparring Conor McGregor has confirmed he’s held talks to face Manny Pacquiao in a boxing match but insists he also wants to go head-to-head with Floyd Mayweather a second time. McGregor returns to the UFC this weekend for his first fight inside the Octagon in 15 months, taking on Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at 170lbs. But “The Notorious” has grand plans for his future and wants to step back into the squared circle, having done so when he was defeated by 10th-round technical knockout by Mayweather when the two clashed in Las Vegas three years ago. McGregor and Mayweather earned eye-watering paychecks for that bout and despite stepping up to the UFC’s welterweight division on his highly-anticipated return against Cerrone, the Irishman also plans on stepping back into the world of boxing. Having declared his desire to win a belt in boxing, McGregor says ahead of UFC 246 that a second showdown with the undefeated Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) is his No 1 option but that taking on Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs) is also a possibility. Asked whether he would prefer taking on “Money” Mayweather or “Pacman” at a press conference to preview his showdown with Cerrone, McGregor said: “That’s a tough one. That’s a tough one. “I would love that Floyd rematch. For what was in front of me I thought I done very well and with some slight adjustments I’d have done even better. “I feel now I could take that victory. Manny Pacquiao, talks have been ongoing in that. “For me, an aspiration of mine now also is to win a boxing world title. “I think that would be a phenomenal feather in the cap and something I look to achieve in the future and something I will achieve. “I’m back with my boxing coaches at Crumlin Boxing Club where I learnt to throw a punch. “They’ve sat me down on my punches, we’ve cleaned up some things and I’m feeling really confident in my boxing abilities. “It’d be an honour to come back into boxing. “Who knows? Maybe I will kickstart Zuffa Boxing if we can get there.” McGregor’s immediate focus, however, is on clinching his first UFC win since November 2016. This is his first fight since losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 nearly 18 months ago. And the Dubliner is expectedly optimistic he has what it takes to overcome veteran Cerrone, whose MMA record reads 50 fights, 36 wins, 13 losses and one no contest. “I feel I have the speed advantage. I’m feeling confident and I am fully committed,” the 31-year-old continued. “I made this game what it is so I’m going to go in there and remind everyone of that. “I can read Donald like a children’s book.”Tags: Conor McGregorDonald CerroneFloyd MayweatherManny Pacquiaolast_img read more

Chile to quarantine Alexis Sanchez, Vidal

first_imgRelatedPosts Italy introduces compulsory virus testing for travellers from France Nigeria records new COVID-19 infections, more deaths as figures rise to 57,242 Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Chilean soccer stars Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal will be quarantined when they return to their home country from Europe to play in a World Cup qualifier this month, Chile’s health minister said on Tuesday. The players – who are signed to European clubs – are due to fly first to Uruguay for a World Cup qualifier on March 26 and then to Chile to face Colombia. Italy announced a quarantine and advised against all but non-essential travel until April 3 after its death toll from coronavirus jumped by 168 to 631 this week. “We do not make any distinction by people’s profession because nobody is immune to this virus and indeed the quarantine determined today for Italy applies to everyone,” said Health Minister Jaime Mañalich, according to local news website Emol. “Of course, if these players want to work out on a machine in their homes, or all be quarantined together at Juan Pinto Duran (the national football stadium), then that’s their call.” A source at the Football Federation of Chile told Emol it had been told nothing about quarantine plans for the players. “So far there are no changes to our plans,” a source said. “What the minister says comes as a surprise.” Spain has suspended flights from Italy and also advised against all non-essential travel. It has so far reported 36 deaths and 1,639 confirmed cases. Italy has at least 10,149. Sánchez plays for Inter Milan and Vidal plays for FC Barcelona. Another Chilean player likely to be impacted is Gary Medel, who plays for the Italian club Bologna. Sanchez’s team has been playing Serie A matches in empty stadiums after the Italian government banned large gatherings last week. At around the same time, there was a flurry of claims on social media that Sanchez himself may have contracted the coronavirus – reports later explained by a poor translation of a story about Sanchez’s team being impacted by the games ban. Chile is tracking people returning from countries affected by coronavirus in a bid to contain its spread. So far, 17 cases have been confirmed in the South American country.Tags: Alexis SanchezArturo VidalCoronavirusWorld Cuplast_img read more

Gibson could make Ireland return

first_img Tardelli continued: “He said, ‘I have a little problem’. He is not available for this match. He was in Malaga because there is a little training camp with Everton. “It’s no problem to come for another match.” Asked if Gibson would be considered for selection for the trip to Sweden on March 22 and the home clash with Austria four days later, Tardelli said: “Yes, why not? “Always when we need a player and the player wants to come with the Irish team, we are very happy. “I don’t understand why this problem exists. It’s not my problem, it’s not Gibson’s problem.” Gibson was named in the squad for the first qualifier of the current campaign in Kazakhstan in September last year, but withdrew after telling Trapattoni the disappointment of what happened in Poland during the summer, and in particular his lack of a role in it, was still having an effect on him. There has been dialogue between the two parties since with the 73-year-old Italian identifying the former Manchester United player as one of the men he felt could give his team a different focus in the immediate aftermath of the Euros. The 25-year-old Everton midfielder has not played for his country since instigating a self-imposed exile in the wake of a disappointing Euro 2012 but assistant manager Marco Tardelli has revealed Giovanni Trapattoni had contacted Gibson on Monday morning following David Meyler’s withdrawal from the squad for Wednesday night’s friendly against Poland with a knee injury. He said: “This morning, Meyler told us that he was going back home and we spoke with Darron and he told us that he has played just one match and he would prefer to stay at home because he is not available. He has a little problem after the match. I think Darron wanted to come here with us. The next match, maybe yes.” Darron Gibson could return to the Ireland squad for next month’s crucial World Cup qualifiers against Sweden and Austria.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Meyler to miss Poland friendly

first_img Assistant Marco Tardelli revealed that Everton’s Darron Gibson, who has made himself unavailable for his country since the Euro 2012 finals, had declined an offer to return, but only because he is suffering from a minor problem himself. Aston Villa defender Ciaran Clark and West Brom striker Shane Long did not train in Malahide, but Tardelli revealed both were rested, Clark with a minor knee injury and Long because he played the full 90 minutes of his club’s 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat by Tottenham on Sunday. The Football Association of Ireland later confirmed Leeds midfielder Paul Green has been drafted into the squad following Meyler’s withdrawal. Green will link up with the squad in Portmarnock in time to take part in training at Gannon Park on Tuesday morning. The 23-year-old picked up the injury during his club’s 1-0 win at Millwall on Saturday, in which he scored the decisive goal, and despite reporting for duty with the rest of his international colleagues, has now been sent home. Manager Giovanni Trapattoni will decide on Monday afternoon whether or not to call up a replacement. Hull midfielder David Meyler has been withdrawn from Ireland’s squad for Wednesday’s friendly against Poland after failing to shake off a knee problem.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Redknapp: Hoops rejected Samba offer

first_img He added: “The chairman asked me ‘what do you think?’ and I said ‘it is up to you, it is your club, it is your decision’. I would have had no problem. I left it to the chairman. He came back and said he had turned it down and said ‘get on with it’. “The player probably spoke to the chairman but it was really important we kept him. It was really good for us. Had we had lost him, I would say that is football. He is a proper player. “When he was sold, I could never understand why Arsenal did not sign him that time. He is everything you need. He is quick, he can play round his feet. He is a proper centre-half. He could play anywhere in this country and for all the top teams.” Samba was a behemoth at the back at Southampton as QPR eked out just their third Barclays Premier League win of the season. “This gives us a chance, that’s all,” Redknapp said. “It is a chance and it keeps us in there. You could not have afforded to be cut adrift anymore. It was three big points which keeps us going. “We needed a result at 1-1, we were playing with one up and I decided to push two up to really go for it with Loic Remy through the middle with Jay Bothroyd. We were 4-4-2, got the goal and I reverted back to 4-5-1. “You start to look at the run of games, which ones you will win, which ones you will lose and whoever knows in football. You look at it and think we will beat them and then you go and lose. Then you think we will get beaten there and go and win, like we did at Chelsea.” Harry Redknapp is relieved QPR chairman Tony Fernandes turned down a “massive offer” for Christopher Samba from an unnamed Russian club last week. Press Associationcenter_img The 28-year-old arrived from Anzhi Makhachkala for a club-record fee on transfer deadline day, penning a four-and-a-half year deal at Loftus Road. However, Redknapp has revealed QPR were offered more than what they forked out for Samba by another Russian club last week ahead of the end of their own transfer window. “We had an offer for Samba, right on the deadline and the chairman turned it down,” Redknapp said after Saturday’s 2-1 win at Southampton. “We had an offer of more money than what we paid for Samba. The chairman had a massive offer for him to go back to Russia.” last_img read more
