Walters returns home – Reflects on drawn Sosa fight

first_imgFresh from a controversial draw decision in New York against American Jason Sosa, Nicholas ‘The Axeman’ Walters arrived in Jamaica last Saturday for an extended holiday in his hometown Anchovy, St James. “I will be in Jamaica for about a month. I will be taking it easy for the first week or so, just relaxing after my fight with Sosa. After that I will be getting back into training with my dad, as I cannot afford to get out of shape now, as 2016 will be a big year for me,” he told The Gleaner. The Walters versus Sosa fight has been the talking point in boxing circles for the past few weeks, following the surprising draw decision in Verona, New York, on November 19, in which nearly everyone except the three judges thought that Walters had won easily. One judge had Sosa as the winner 96-94, while the other two judges scored it 95-95, for a majority draw decision. The punch statistics favoured Walters as they showed that he landed 436 of 610 punches thrown, while Sosa landed 121 of 225. Walters also hurt Sosa in the fifth round but did not go in for the kill. Commenting on the fight, Walters said that there was no doubt in his mind that he had won his first fight as a super featherweight, and that he did not see his opponent winning more than possibly one round. What he has learnt from this experience he said, is that he has to “knock out all my opponents, so as to avoid any more bad decisions”. His father Job, who returned to Jamaica with him after being in his corner for the fight, said that ” it was a very poor decision. I think that Nick won every round. That is behind us now, however, and we are looking to the future”. He went on to say, “I think that it was a blessing in disguise, as we got more publicity from this bad decision than when Nicholas beat Donaire to become super champion. Everywhere we went, Nicholas was mobbed. He received a great welcome when he returned to Panama, and when we landed in MoBay, the people were all over us. It has been good, and the important thing is that he is still unbeaten.” Walters is now 26-0-1. A decision that has to be made by the Walters connections is whether he will fight as a featherweight at 126 pounds or as a super featherweight at 130 pounds in 2016. He told The Gleaner that when he returns to Panama next month, he will sit down with his team, go through all the options and make the decision. ” I can fight at either weight” he added.last_img read more

Judge OKs partial use of Flight 93 tape

first_imgSome 41 cases have been filed against airlines, plane manufacturers, security agencies and others. NEW YORK (AP) – The dramatic final moments of United Airlines Flight 93 that were captured on a cockpit voice recorder can be played for a jury at the first trial stemming from lawsuits filed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a judge ruled Wednesday. U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein ruled that jurors can’t listen to the entire tape but can hear portions that the hijacked passengers may have heard. The relevant portions include a segment in which the voices of one or two of the apparent hijackers announce they have a bomb on board. He also said jurors could hear a 4-minute-long stretch of the sounds of passengers trying to force their way into the cockpit and retake the airplane. The recording has never been publicly released, though it was played at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, and relatives of the victims were allowed to hear it in private. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Delap strike earns LYIT brilliant win over Maynooth University

first_imgThe LYIT Men’s soccer team have finished the 5th round of games in the Colleges and Universities Football League on 12 points and will top the table in the Division 1 league. This position guarantees the team a home draw in the quarter finals of the league play offs which are schedules for next month.The victory over Maynooth University in Letterkenny last Tuesday when LYIT won 1-0 with a goal from Adrian Delap in the 29th minute. The home team worked hard throughout the game but, it has to be said they did not take advantage of many scoring opportunities to seal the victory long before referee Marty Quinn’s final whistle.Maynooth were well worth a point in this game, especially with their first half performance. However the victory was sealed with good defending on the part of both Ciaran Kelly and Lee McColgan, both of whom are first year students in LYIT. Brian McVeigh was forced off early in the second half of the game with a fractured nose due to a clash with a Maynooth midfielder Sam Watkins. It is hoped that his recovery will be swift as the Lettereknny Rovers player has been in impressive form for his college since the outset of this year’s CUFL programme.LYIT Mark McElhinney, Caolan McDaid, Lee McColgam, Ciaran Kelly, Fearghal Harkin, Brian McVeigh, Daire McDaid (captain), Marty Doherty, Adrian Delap, Paul McVeigh , Keelin McElwaine,Subs: Aaron Mc Namee for Brian McVeigh, Dean Larkin for Marty Doherty, Shay Derning, Eoghan o Doherty, Michael Kisugagbe, Cian Mulligan.Maynooth: David McNamara, Jack Somors, Gary Daly, Conor Mooney, Ciaran Lyons, Dara Kavanagh, Stephen Mullins, Sam Watkins, Cian Ci, Dean George, Conor Delahunty,Subs: Shane OKeefe, Ben Kelly, Joseph McKinney, David O’Keefe,, taslim Agbontaen, Thomas Maguire.Delap strike earns LYIT brilliant win over Maynooth University was last modified: November 23rd, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Adrian DelapLYITMaynooth UniversitynewsSportlast_img read more

FORGET THE MATCH! GLENTIES SET FOR SCOTTISH/DONEGAL CULTURAL WEEKEND

first_imgGlenties – cementing links western Scotland and DonegalWE may not be the best of friends when Ireland take on Scotland at Celtic Park tomorrow night – but all will be forgotten later this month when Glenties hosts a weekend celebrating the cultural links between Donegal and western Scotaland.The connections between Donegal and the western fringe of Scotland will be marked during a weekend of ‘Myth, magic and music in Colmcille country’, which is taking place in Glenties from Friday 21th November to Sunday 23rd.Visitors from Scotland will include storytellers, singers and musicians. They’ll link up with some of Donegal’s best-known tale-tellers and players, including Vincent, Jimmy and Peter Campbell, Frank Galligan, Caoimhin MacAoidh and Martin McGinley. The weekend will feature ghost stories told where they happened around Glenties, and story-telling and singing sessions in both Irish and Scots Gaelic. There will also be fiddle workshops, lots of music sessions, and a gala concert in the Highlands Hotel on the Saturday night.Fiddler Denise Boyle, who has organised the weekend, said she’s delighted how it has come together.“We’ve got a really top-class bunch coming from Scotland, mainly from the western seaboard, which basically continues where Donegal leaves off,” she said. “It’s extra special for my family because we have lots of relatives on the island of Uist in the Outer Hebrides.”The weekend is being funded by Colmcille, a partnership programme between Foras na Gaeilge and Bòrd na Gàidhlig. Colmcille promotes the use of Irish Gaelic and Scottish Gaelic in Ireland and Scotland and between the two countries. Those travelling in from Scotland include fiddlers Jamie McDonald, Robbie Grieg, Simon Bradley and Anna Wendy Stevenson, flute player and fiddle Rachel Harris and guitarist and singer Kaitlin Ross.Uist-based Simon Bradley and his wife Anna Wendy are no strangers to Donegal, as Simon’s father Pearse lives in Buncrana. Simon’s tunes and his father’s poems were included in an acclaimed book, ‘Simon Bradley – Buncrana to Baleshare’. FORGET THE MATCH!
