WBA super-middleweight champion George Groves is hopeful a shoulder injury will not keep him out of the World Boxing Super Series final.
'Quick-healer' Groves hopeful over shoulder injury
WBA super-middleweight champion George Groves is hopeful a shoulder injury will not keep him out of the World Boxing Super Series final.
Bristol City’s inability to hold on to a lead proved a welcome weakness for new Leeds manager Paul Heckingbottom, who marked his first Elland Road game with a point that kept alive his team’s play-off hopes. After throwing away a three-goal lead against Sunderland last weekend, Lee Johnson’s side were just as frail today, racing into a 2-0 lead inside 16 minutes but, ultimately, being fortunate to emerge even with a point. With the last touch of the game, Pierre-Michel Lasogga rose menacingly to meet a Pablo Hernandez cross which thundered against the City bar and Johnson breathed a sigh of relief. The result left City still in the play-off places but with just one win in any competition since Boxing Day, a period which had also seen them take on ­Manchester City at the end of their famous run to the Carabao Cup semi-finals. “We are where we are really,” said Johnson. “I’ve never gone shouting my mouth off saying my team is going to smash promotion because we’re not there. “With 14 games left we’re in a good position and we’ve got belief. We’re a work in progress with a lot of young players who haven’t experienced this sort of atmosphere. We know we’ve done well to turn this team around; this time last year we were effectively competing against relegation. Now we have jumped 12 or 13 places up the division.” City looked every inch a promotion contender in that devastating opening spell which brought two goals, both from long throw-ins launched by Icelandic defender Hordur Magnusson. After 11 minutes, Leeds’ panicked goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald punched out to City forward Famara Diedhiou, who took a touch – a poor one, as it transpired – but still had time to drive the ball in from 12 yards. Five minutes later, Leeds again froze at a long throw, allowing Aden Flint to flick on to Marlon Pack, whose drive was turned in at the far post by Bobby Reid. There was certainly no clue of Leeds’ eventual fightback as their 10th manager in the past six years heard his team booed off at the interval. And the opening exchanges of the second half were no better as supporters sarcastically greeted the occasional accurate pass by their players with an “ole”. But, slowly, Hernandez was becoming more of an influence and Heckingbottom was using his bench effectively. After 72 minutes, Hernandez’s far-post cross picked out Lasogga, who volleyed emphatically past Frank Fielding and, eight minutes of Leeds pressure later, a Hernandez corner was flicked across goal for substitute Kemar Roofe to slide in the equaliser. By now Elland Road was an intimidating place, one which Johnson later admitted might have got to some of his younger players, and the situation might have become even more dire for the visitors. In a frantic finale, Adam Forshaw created room to curl a shot wide, another sub Kalvin Phillips headed over from yet another Hernandez set-piece and, with that last kick of the game, Lasogga rattled the City woodwork. “We definitely had opportunities to win it and I know when I watch it back I’m going to be cringing ­because they were good chances as well,” said Heckingbottom. “We still think we can make the play-offs. If we had lost, the gap would have been 11 points and that would have been big but we’re still in it. “We’ve got teams to play around us but nobody is getting away from us. If we can pick up some positive results against them, we will see where we are in the last few games.”

Light heavyweight Liam McGeary hit the record books as the first British fighter to claim a major MMA title in North America in 2015, and when he lost the crown to Phil Davis after one defence against Tito Ortiz, the American promised him a rematch. But Davis lost the belt to newly signed Ryan Bader. It scuppered his cunning plan. All McGeary wants is that built back - and a Bader fight now. But he must first come through Russian Vadim Nevkov in Connecticut tonight at Bellator 194. And while Bader is away at the fight league's 8-man heavyweight tournament, potentially for a year, McGeary aims to get himself into polo position. Bellator, though, has made some signings in its 205b division in the last year making it arguably the most competitive top 6 or 7 in the world. "The boys they are signing are top fighters. The fights are getting better, the shows are great. It’s always a spectacle." "Look, Bader has come over, he’s a champion, and we’ve got Phil Davis. I don’t know who else they’ve signed. I’m reading there’s a lot coming in. I dont take too much notice and just focus on myself," said the Jersey fighter. Exclusive interview @BellatorMMA 194: @liam_mcgeary eager to get 205 title back sees Matt Mitrione as heavy winner; heartbreak for @HeatherHardyBoxhttps://t.co/j91YYBJ9PP via @TelegraphSport. Portrait @geoff_pixpic.twitter.com/ta59tEPBGE— Gareth A Davies (@GarethADaviesDT) February 16, 2018 McGeary lost last time out, to Linton Vassell, who went on to challenge, and lose, to Bader, late last year. McGeary hasn't fought side. "It’s been a long time. It was May last year. I was supposed to fight in October but broke my thumb two weeks before the fight. That put me out until the new year. I got pissed off and let life catch up with me." The injury ? "I was hitting someone in the head. We’re fighters," laughs McGeary sardonically, before explaining: "We had them super safety gloves on and they don’t have any thumb protection. I should have been wearing boxing gloves. I threw an uppercut and it bounced off awkwardly and my thumb took the brunt of it." "I felt the thing crumble in my hand. I asked them to take my glove off and my thumb just dropped. I thought it was dislocated and had about four people trying to put it back in but it kept coming out. Then my friend had a look at it and said you need pins in that it’s f----d." It required serious surgery. "They put pins in it to help form the bone again. There was one down the centre and four going into the side of it. They took them out after six weeks and then I had to wear something else just to hold the thumb in case it got rocked or anything." #TapoutTuesday - Former light heavyweight champ @liam_mcgeary’s #BJJ game is �� Liam looks to get back on the road to title contention with a win over Russian powerhouse Vadim Nemkov this Friday, Feb. 16th LIVE & FREE on @paramountnet#Bellator194pic.twitter.com/39qU7s7B9Y— Bellator MMA (@BellatorMMA) February 13, 2018 McGeary was crestfallen not being able to fight, over use his hands in training. "I was pissed. I was angry. How I was looking when it actually happened, it was going to be a cracking fight, trust me. I was going to do a number on this guy. I was annoyed. Ten minutes after having the cast on I booked a ticket and I was off. I was off to a beach. I travelled around all over the place." To raise his spirits, he went travelling, seeking the sun, seeing friends. "I went to Hawaii, LA, New York and then Spain and back to New York and then back to Spain and then back to Hawaii. I didn’t drink. I wanted to get straight back in as soon as my thumb was better. The only thing that would have messed that up is if I went on a drinking binge. I ate healthy and treated myself right. I enjoyed life, man. I turned a blind eye to everything in this sport and I missed my family and friends." So - to the contest at the Mohegan Sun Resort, and the compact, 6ft tall, 25-year-old opponent, record 8-2 - 7 KOs - tonight. "He’s someone in the way of me moving forward and getting my title back. I want to go out there and prove a point and make sure everyone remembers who I am. I’m looking forward to it. I have to beat him everywhere. On the ground, on my feet. Everywhere. I’m going to take his head off." Bader, though, sits in the back of his mind. "Of course I want to fight him. One fight at a time, one person at a time, one knockout at a time. Let’s just enjoy the carnage." Nor is he bothered about Bader being held up in the heavyweight tournament. "That’s all right. I’m not going to get a title fight straight away. He’s tied up in that tournament and that gives me time to fight these other guys. Everyone needs to fight. It kind of works in my favour." McGeary does not think Bader will become a two weight champion, nor indeed, would he put himself forward - as welterweight champion, the Canadian Rory MacDonald - as an alternate in the tournament. "I think Matt Mitrione or Frank Mir look likely finalists, and I think Mitrione might just win it. He’s strong and he’s athletic. It will definitely be an entertaining fight. Me in with the heavies ? I’m lean, man. There are weight divisions for a reason. I’m slower when I’m heavier. I just want to get my light heavyweight belt back." These fights are going to be ������!@HeatherHardyBox vs. @anajulaton@liam_mcgeary vs. Vadim Nemkov@tclax149 vs. Jose Antonio Perez Which fighters are taking home wins? #Bellator194pic.twitter.com/5dLpEK1Z4B— Bellator MMA (@BellatorMMA) February 16, 2018 Heather Hardy and Ana Julaton up the ante in heated women's flyweight bout There were tears of joy then abject misery for New Yorker Hardy this week - after being sidelined by her single mother duties looking for a new school for her daughter - after she, just, failed to make the 125b limit yesterday - ahead of her much anticipated fight with California Ana Julaton. Hardy has been forced to concede 20 per cent of her purse to her rivals. A war of words has accompanied this build up, a two-parter which will see them compete in MMA, and then switch to a boxing ring this summer. Both are boxing world champions.

But Davis lost the belt to newly signed Ryan Bader. It scuppered his cunning plan. All McGeary wants is that built back - and a Bader fight now. But he must first come through Russian Vadim Nevkov in Connecticut tonight at Bellator 194. And while Bader is away at the fight league's 8-man heavyweight tournament, potentially for a year, McGeary aims to get himself into polo position. Bellator, though, has made some signings in its 205b division in the last year making it arguably the most competitive top 6 or 7 in the world. "The boys they are signing are top fighters. The fights are getting better, the shows are great. It’s always a spectacle." "Look, Bader has come over, he’s a champion, and we’ve got Phil Davis. I don’t know who else they’ve signed. I’m reading there’s a lot coming in. I dont take too much notice and just focus on myself," said the Jersey fighter.

Portrait @geoff_pixpic.twitter.com/ta59tEPBGE— Gareth A Davies (@GarethADaviesDT) February 16, 2018 McGeary lost last time out, to Linton Vassell, who went on to challenge, and lose, to Bader, late last year. McGeary hasn't fought side. "It’s been a long time. It was May last year. I was supposed to fight in October but broke my thumb two weeks before the fight. That put me out until the new year. I got pissed off and let life catch up with me." The injury ? "I was hitting someone in the head. We’re fighters," laughs McGeary sardonically, before explaining: "We had them super safety gloves on and they don’t have any thumb protection. I should have been wearing boxing gloves. I threw an uppercut and it bounced off awkwardly and my thumb took the brunt of it." "I felt the thing crumble in my hand. I asked them to take my glove off and my thumb just dropped. I thought it was dislocated and had about four people trying to put it back in but it kept coming out. Then my friend had a look at it and said you need pins in that it’s f----d." It required serious surgery. "They put pins in it to help form the bone again. There was one down the centre and four going into the side of it. They took them out after six weeks and then I had to wear something else just to hold the thumb in case it got rocked or anything." #TapoutTuesday - Former light heavyweight champ @liam_mcgeary’s #BJJ game is �� Liam looks to get back on the road to title contention with a win over Russian powerhouse Vadim Nemkov this Friday, Feb. 16th LIVE & FREE on @paramountnet#Bellator194pic.twitter.com/39qU7s7B9Y— Bellator MMA (@BellatorMMA) February 13, 2018 McGeary was crestfallen not being able to fight, over use his hands in training. "I was pissed. I was angry. How I was looking when it actually happened, it was going to be a cracking fight, trust me. I was going to do a number on this guy. I was annoyed. Ten minutes after having the cast on I booked a ticket and I was off. I was off to a beach. I travelled around all over the place." To raise his spirits, he went travelling, seeking the sun, seeing friends. "I went to Hawaii, LA, New York and then Spain and back to New York and then back to Spain and then back to Hawaii. I didn’t drink. I wanted to get straight back in as soon as my thumb was better. The only thing that would have messed that up is if I went on a drinking binge. I ate healthy and treated myself right. I enjoyed life, man. I turned a blind eye to everything in this sport and I missed my family and friends." So - to the contest at the Mohegan Sun Resort, and the compact, 6ft tall, 25-year-old opponent, record 8-2 - 7 KOs - tonight. "He’s someone in the way of me moving forward and getting my title back. I want to go out there and prove a point and make sure everyone remembers who I am. I’m looking forward to it. I have to beat him everywhere. On the ground, on my feet. Everywhere. I’m going to take his head off." Bader, though, sits in the back of his mind. "Of course I want to fight him. One fight at a time, one person at a time, one knockout at a time. Let’s just enjoy the carnage." Nor is he bothered about Bader being held up in the heavyweight tournament. "That’s all right. I’m not going to get a title fight straight away. He’s tied up in that tournament and that gives me time to fight these other guys. Everyone needs to fight. It kind of works in my favour." McGeary does not think Bader will become a two weight champion, nor indeed, would he put himself forward - as welterweight champion, the Canadian Rory MacDonald - as an alternate in the tournament. "I think Matt Mitrione or Frank Mir look likely finalists, and I think Mitrione might just win it. He’s strong and he’s athletic. It will definitely be an entertaining fight. Me in with the heavies ? I’m lean, man. There are weight divisions for a reason. I’m slower when I’m heavier. I just want to get my light heavyweight belt back."

Hardy has been forced to concede 20 per cent of her purse to her rivals. A war of words has accompanied this build up, a two-parter which will see them compete in MMA, and then switch to a boxing ring this summer. Both are boxing world champions.
