first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Ings not interested in leaving Saints, Southampton manager says Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte has had a knee surgery after damaging his cartilage and lateral meniscus in their 4-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend, the Premier League champions said on Wednesday. The 25-year-old, who had been called up by France for their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Albania and Andorra, was carried off on a stretcher after upending Brighton’s Adam Webster and coming off worse. “Aymeric Laporte has undergone surgery on his knee after damaging his cartilage and lateral meniscus during Saturday’s win over Brighton,” City said in a statement. “The surgery, carried out by Dr Ramon Cugat in Barcelona, was successful and a more detailed prognosis will be provided in due course. Everyone at City wishes Aymeric a full and speedy recovery.” Laporte established himself as a key player in manager Pep Guardiola’s back line last season, playing 35 league matches and started all four of their matches in the current campaign. The Frenchman’s injury means that City only have Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones, who is battling a thigh issue, as their senior central defenders, following the departure of Vincent Kompany in the closed season. City return to league action against promoted Norwich City on September 14.

first_imgJoin DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearKovalev had been in negotiations to take on unified middleweight champion and WBA “regular” super middleweight titleholder Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on Sept. 14. BoxingScene.com reports that both sides are still in talks for the date. SI.com reports Kovalev’s promoter, Main Events, and Alvarez’s promoter, Golden Boy Promotions, are about $2 million apart. Boxing Scene also reports that if Alvarez-Kovalev does come to fruition, then Yarde will receive a substantial amount of money to step aside. The fact Kovalev vs. Yarde is official puts the ball in Alvarez’s court as to what he wants to do.A fight with Kovalev is still very much on the table, considering $2 million isn’t too much for either promotion. If this is the fight Alvarez really wants instead of a trilogy fight with Gennadiy Golovkin, then he needs to tell Golden Boy to pony up the money to get it done because, in the grand scheme of things beyond a GGG trilogy, this is the most high-profile fight out there for Alvarez.Things can get testy and the possibility remains that Alvarez-Kovalev doesn’t get done. Going back and revisiting the idea of a GGG trilogy isn’t what Alvarez wants; he already went 24 rounds with Golovkin and came out the victor in the rematch last September, and he doesn’t want to give the Kazakh star the satisfaction of getting another crack at him. There’s also WBA (super) super middleweight champion Callum Smith. Both Alvarez and Smith have expressed interest in a fight. That would appear to be the last resort for the Mexican star unless he’s willing to budge from his customary date during Mexican Independence Day weekend. Golden Boy president Eric Gomez told The Athletic that Alvarez would compete on Sept. 14. WBO titleholder Demetrius Andrade, who cruised to a lopsided decision win over Maciej Sulecki last month, is another option. ESPN reported last week that Gomez and Andrade’s promoter, Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn, exchanged text messages and talked by phone to see whether Andrade could do a quick turnaround and fight Alvarez. “Boo Boo” took no punishment in his last fight, so Hearn told Gomez there is significant interest. Andrade has been lobbying for the fight on social media, as well.Ultimately, Alvarez can’t go wrong in any of these scenarios.For the face of boxing, though, it has always been about fighting the toughest competition and trying to conquer the biggest challenges, regardless of what anyone thinks. The stakes are high and the ball is in Alvarez’s court, because the second Saturday in September is rapidly approaching. Sergey Kovalev finally has a fight confirmed, and it carries some “Canelo” ramifications.The Russian Boxing Federation announced Friday that Kovalev will be defending his WBO light heavyweight championship against mandatory challenger Anthony Yarde on Saturday, Aug. 24, at Traktor Sports Palace in Kovalev’s hometown of Chelyabinsk, Russia. last_img read more

first_imgBy Allison Perrine The Rumson Police Department has, like Oceanport, also noted an overall decrease in call volume since social distancing orders started. Borough residents have reported some car thefts, however, and the department is getting calls concerning violations of the governor’s executive orders. That includes residents outside with others, not wearing masks or face coverings. Kelly also minimized staffing in the department’s building at the beginning of the pandemic to avoid having officers in close quarters. Some were given administrative days at home, allowing them to be on-call but not in the office. Rumson Borough Police Chief Scott Paterson also has his officers in the proper PPE for serious and crisis calls, but they are keeping their distance as much as possible. They do not enter a house without proper equipment, he said. According to Oceanport Police Chief Michael P. Kelly, this issue is not unique to the borough or even to the county, as it is happening across the state. The belief is that there are two rings of criminals operating out of North Jersey who are stealing high-end cars and items inside them, like wallets and cash. But in March, there were a reported 30 car burglaries on the east side of Oceanport; two cars were stolen and later recovered in Newark. In April, in the Kimberly Woods section of town, there were four or five vehicle burglaries. According to Kelly, these rings usually take the cars, put them in containers and ship them overseas to be sold. There has been, however, an uptick in car burglaries in the area, as well as scam calls and first aid calls. MONMOUTH COUNTY – Police departments in the Two River area are reporting a general decrease in call volumes during the COVID-19 pandemic, as more people stay inside and keep off the roads. The parks are open during normal posted hours, available at monmouthcountyparks.com. Parking is limited to half capacity. Park rangers monitor visitor loads and can temporarily close parks if parking lots become too full. Buildings, including restrooms, shelter buildings and picnic pavilions are still closed. Answering emergency calls during the shutdown has created certain challenges. The department is trying to handle as many calls as possible over the phone; more serious calls are handled in person. Officers who are dispatched to any crime scene must take the proper precautions to keep residents and themselves safe; they wear personal protective equipment (PPE), including N95 masks and gloves. “I am so grateful to the Monmouth County Park System for handling the reopening of the parks and golf courses in such an exemplary way,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the Monmouth County Park System, in a press release. “I have always said that we have the best park system in New Jersey and I was proud to hear that Governor Murphy, who visited Thompson Park this weekend, publicly complimented the way the County parks were set up and monitored.” center_img There is also a bail scam going on throughout New Jersey that targets elderly community members. Scammers are gathering information about the victims, claiming to be bail collectors and telling them that a family member is in jail and needs bail money. Aside from burglaries, the Oceanport Police Department is seeing an increase in first aid calls, not necessarily related to COVID-19 cases. More people are home, and Kelly believes that’s why there have been more calls of people falling, suffering strokes and experiencing mental health issues. The department has only had a few coronavirus-related calls. “We were lucky we had a supply of PPEs,” said Kelly. “We don’t want officers, and unfortunately it’s happened, bringing the virus back to the home.” Two officers from the department have needed to self-quarantine due to potential exposures to the virus. This past weekend was a true test for New Jersey residents. It was the first weekend after Gov. Phil Murphy reopened state parks and allowed county governments to open parks and golf courses if they chose to do so. Monmouth County opted to open their facilities and, according to the freeholders, it was successful. “I feel as though with the opening of our golf course and tennis courts and stuff like that, we’re going to see an uptick in those sorts of things,” said Paterson. “We’re hoping and praying and asking for everybody to do the right thing and pay attention to all the executive orders.” “Everybody has been hitwith them in MonmouthCounty,” said Kelly. “Weusually have them, butthey’re intermittent.” “That minimizes the number of officers here. Internally, that was the one major thing we did,” said Kelly. “I prohibited officers from congregating. Roll calls were basically done via phone or email so they wouldn’t all be in one area at one time.” “They’re preying on these people and they’re actually getting them to give their information and showing up at their homes,” said Kelly. He believes residents from five county municipalities have been impacted. The article originally appeared in the May 7th – May 13th, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

She claimed the five-year-old Giant’s Causeway gelding for $40,000 three races back and has won two overnight races with him since. The Palos Verdes marks his stakes debut.“He’s doing really good,” Mulhall said. “He’s getting better and better. I claimed him because I liked his form. It looked like he wanted to run shorter and be a late-running sprinter.“We took a shot, put blinkers on him, and got lucky.”The Palos Verdes, race six of eight: Kobe’s Back, Gary Stevens, 5-2; Salutos Amigos, Rafael Bejarano, 2-1; Mystery Train, Tyler Baze, 12-1; Pulling G’s, Victor Espinoza, 7-2; Rocket Heat, Edwin Maldonado, 9-2; and Cautious Giant, Santiago Gonzalez, 4-1.
