The great Boxing Fight Mayweather vs Cotto Coming Soon

This great Boxing fight is no doubt a disappointment to fans across the country and isn't the fight everyone wants to see. As a result, the interest in this fight could be minimal at best and that isn't good for the sport and two of its strong best fighters. But with this new idea of showing a major heavy boxing event in movie theaters is a great idea to help bring in more people to watch.

 Though we are expecting Manny Pacquiao, the pound-for-pound king, to fight against the undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., looks like we need to wait a little bit longer because they have different fights in the first half of the year. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is scheduled to fight the great American boxer Miguel Cotto this upcoming May 5, 2012 while Manny Pacquiao is going to have his own fight may be  this June 2012.

The great champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced that his next opponent inside the boxing ring is going to be the WBA junior middleweight king Miguel Cotto. He announced this in front of the members of the Nevada State Athletic Commission and the Mayweather vs Cotto Boxing fight is going to be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on May 5.

 "Let's RCB's batting looks heavy at top of the order fully packed with overseas players, I think it will come down to a nail-biting over,” said the Chennai Super Kings fast bowling coach at the pre-match press conference in Bangalore on Tuesday. The last match played between the two outfits, at Chennai’s backyard, MA Chidambaram Stadium, was also a high scoring game in which the CSK chased down a colossal 206-run target with a last-ball four, plundering 43 runs off the final two overs.

Both sides share points on the table with four wins in seven outings so far, but great player Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings find themselves ahead of RCB on the standings, owing to their better net run-rate. However, donned in red, player Daniel Vettori’s Royal Challengers will go into Wednesday’s the cricket game with three wins on the trot and will be high on confidence

Time was when player Ronnie O'Sullivan just couldn't stay out of the limelight. So far in this year's Betfred.com the World Championship, the Rocket has been obscured by excellent perfection, allegations and emotion. Even Tuesday's smooth passage into the second round with a 10-4 smooth victory over Peter Ebdon was overshadowed by controversy and tears  surrounding his opponent.

 An emotional Snooker player Ebdon, who has adopted a vegan lifestyle based largely on organic bananas and organic dates, broke down after a concluding session in which he was banned by World Snooker game  from wearing a patch on his waistcoat advertising an alternative cancer treatment.

As Suns Shine -Young Jazz Players

The great Kevin O'Connor Rebuilding Master Class gave a free seminar to the entire NBA on Tuesday night. "How to Rebuild and Stay Relevant" is the working title and the Phoenix Suns  provided a telling most contrast to prove his thesis.The results of fleecing trade partners, keeping salaries manageable, mixing affordable veterans with promising young spirit players, maintaining a winning culture and building for the future.

On the vet side, Al Jefferson (18 points, 16 rebounds) returns to the playoffs for the first time since his rookie year in Boston. It was big fitting that he scored eight straight points down the stretch to put the game away and couldn't keep the smile off his face to face  when he was finally taken out of the great game to a standing ovation.
The genius of O'Connor is the fuzzy math surrounding the rest of the roster. I'm confident no one could have guessed that castaways Josh Howard  and Jamaal Tinsley would be playing crucial minutes for a playoff-contending Utah Jazz team.

The great Baylor basketball programs may be in trouble with NCAA the  after an investigation found that coaches made more than 1,200 impermissible calls and text messages to prospects over a 29-month span dating to 2008.

 The school did not describe any details of the proper investigation, including which sports were involved, but the announcement came a few hours after ESPN.com reported that coaches for both the men’s and women’s basketball programs had made more than 1,200 calls and text messages to prospects over a 29-month span dating to 2008.

The report lists a number of self-imposed penalties, including barring women's coach Kim Mulkey from recruiting off campus in July and fewer scholarships for both programs. The ANCA may dole out harsher penalties.

India Hockey Team Coach Top- At Olympics

The great Indian Hockey Team having "fed the 5,000" and fulfilled his duty of leading the India hockey team to Olympic qualification, Australian coach Michael Nobbs has set the target of a top-six finish in London.

The former Indian hockey powerhouse won the last of their eight gold medals in 1980 but their gradual decline reached its lowest ebb in 2008 when the team failed to qualify for the Beijing, the first time India missed a Games in 80 years. So it was a huge relief for the nation when the team won a qualifying tournament in Delhi in February to seal a London berth.

"I was very relieved. I was quite apprehensive. I knew how Indian hockey had probably declined in the last number of years," Nobbs, who took on the job in July 2011, told Reuters in an interview.

A rumbling administrative row and cricket`s emergence as the most dominant sport in the country have not helped Indian hockey.
