Wilder Says Pre-Fight Costume Wore Down Legs, Plans to Execute Rematch Clause With Fury
02/25/2020 12:25am

Deontay Wilder says an elaborate outfit he wore on his ring walk wore him down so much that he didnt have the legs to withstand Tyson Fury in their heavyweight title fight Saturday night.Wilder also said he would execute a clause in his contract for a third fight with Fury, hopefully sometime this summer.This summer with no fights in between, Wilder told The Associated Press in a phone interview Monday. Im a warrior and Im ready to go again, but were going to change a lot of things in camp.Wilder said the outfit which he said was a tribute to Black History Month weighed him down and that his legs werent right by the time the fight started. Wilder said the entire getup, including a mask, weighed some 40 pounds, and he knew by the end of the second round that his legs were gone.Wilder also said his assistant trainer, Mark Breland, was acting against previously agreed-upon instructions when he threw in the towel to end the fight at 1:39 of the seventh round and would not likely be in the corner in a third fight.We had many discussions for years about this situation and for him to still do it after Jay Deas, Wilders main trainer told him not to do it really hurt me. And then I heard he was influenced by another fighter in the audience and it makes a lot of conspiracy theories in your head why he did it. It didnt make sense.The former heavyweight champion was knocked down twice by Fury in the fight before his corner threw in the towel in the seventh round. It was his first loss in 44 fights and came after 10 successful title defenses.Wilder, who has always worn elaborate outfits into the ring, said he tried on the one he used in the fight the night before in his hotel room to make sure he could get it on and off. He said it was weighed down by sequins and ornamentation and also included batteries for his mask to light up when he got in the ring.Going up the stairs into the ring I knew immediately it was a different change in my body condition, he said. After the second round I had no legs, period.Wilder said he is taking a previously scheduled trip to Africa, but plans to resume training once he gets back. He has 30 days to officially accept the third fight, which would be a 60-40 purse split in Furys favor.Fury and Wilder combined to sell the biggest live gate $16.9 million in Nevada heavyweight fight history and, though the results have not been announced, the fight was expected to have performed well on pay-per-view. Both fighters were expected to make $30 million or more when the receipts are all added up.Wilder said he has gotten an outpouring of love from people in the wake of his loss, the first in his 12-year professional career. He said the worst thing about the fight was that he wasnt allowed to keep fighting past the seventh round, when he was taking a lot of punches to the head without throwing many back.Im going out on my shield. Im a warrior, Wilder said. If I say Im willing to kill a man in the ring then Im willing to abide by that same principle as a warrior to die in the ring.

Watch 86-Year-Old Grandmother Sink Epic Putt to Win a New Car
02/24/2020 2:25pm

Happy Gilmore, meet Mary Ann.An 86-year-old grandmother stunned a crowd and the internet by sinking a 94-foot putt during an Ole Miss-Alabama basketball game Saturday to win a new Nissan Altima. Viral video of Mary Ann Wakefields hot shot across the hardwood shows the ball rolling toward its target as an announcer says, thats looking really good. The epic putts conclusion leaves the Ole Miss fan momentarily slack-jawed, as airhorns sound off and fans jump in the stands. She also scores a hug from Tony the Landshark, the mascot of her beloved Rebels. The Oxford, Alabama, resident later shared her technique with AL.com. I just lined up my putter, closed my eyes and said, Lord, its up to you, and I hit it, she said. It probably helped that she lives at a retirement community called The Links with a golf course, according to Al.com. Still, Wakefield said that she usually struggles in her short game.

Tears, Laughter, and Embraces Punctuate Somber Kobe and Gianna Bryant Memorial at Staples Center
02/24/2020 2:03pm

Amid tears, laughs and cheers, memories flowed through Staples Center Monday as the NBA, the city and the world bade a formal farewell to Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, one month after the helicopter crash that claimed their lives.Walking onto a stage adorned with thousands of roses, Bryants wife, Vanessa, made her first public appearance since her husband and daughter died along with seven other people in the Calabasas crash. She gave a tearful, powerful tribute to them both, painting a picture of her world-famous husband as a loving husband and family man.I couldnt see him as a celebrity nor just an incredible basketball player. He was my sweet husband and the beautiful father of our children, Vanessa said. He was mine. He was my everything. Kobe and I had been together since I was 17 and a half years old. I was his first girlfriend, his first love, his wife, his best friend, his confidante and his protector. He was the most amazing husband. Kobe loved me more than I could ever express or put into words. I have no idea how I deserved a man that loved and wanted me more than Kobe, she said. He was charismatic, a gentleman. He was loving, adoring and romantic. He was truly the romantic one in our relationship. I looked forward to Valentines Day and our anniversaries every year.Bryants number 8 and 24 jerseys were illuminated in the Staples Center rafters as Vanessa spoke of his legacy.We had always talked about how we would be the fun grandparents to our daughters children, she said. He would have been the coolest grandpa. Kobe was the MVP of girl-dads, or MVD. He never left the toilet seat up. He always told the girlshow beautiful and smart they are. He taught them how to be brave and how to keep pushing forward when things get tough.Vanessa described her daughter, Gianna, as a loving teen with a smile that filled her face, and who never left the house or came home with kissing her mother.She gave the best hugs and the best kisses, she said. She had gorgeous soft lips like her daddy. She would hold me and hug me so tight. I could feel her love me.Vanessa Bryant noted that her daughter, while hailed for her basketball talent, was also great at gymnastics, soccer, softball and dancing.Gigi would have mostly likely become the best player in the WNBA, she said. She would have made a huge difference for womens basketball. Gigi was motivated to change the way everyone viewed women in sports. She wrote papers in school defending women and wrote about how the unequal pay difference of the NBA and WNBA leagues wasnt fair.Vanessa Bryant said Gianna was a beautiful, kind, happy, silly, thoughtful and loving daughter and sister. She was so full of life and had so much more to offer this world. I cannot imagine life without her.She lamented that she would not be able to see her daughter grow up.I wont be able to tell her how gorgeous she looks on her wedding day, she said. Ill never get to see my baby girl walk down the aisle, have a father-daughter dance with her daddy, dance on the dance floor with me or have babies of her own.The emotion-packed event began with a performance by Beyonce, who sang a rendition of her song Halo, followed by a highlight reel of Bryants career, which began as an 18-year-old phenom out of high school and earned him five NBA titles.Late-night television host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel emceed the memorial, often fighting back tears of his own.I dont think any of us could have imagined this, Kimmel said.Everywhere you go, you see his face, his number, Gigis face, Gigis number.Kobe BryantJan 28About the Victims Who Died in the Kobe Bryant Helicopter CrashKobe BryantFeb 9Memorial Honors Helicopter Crash Victims Sarah and Payton ChesterEverywhere at every intersection, there are hundreds of murals that were painted by artists who were inspired, not because he is a basketball player, but because Kobe was an artist too.WNBA player Diana Taurasi spoke about Kobes tenacity and Giannas skills.The same passion we all recognized in Kobe, obviously, Gigi inherited. Her skill was undeniable at an early age, Taurasi said. Gigi in many ways represents the future of womens basketball.The ceremony attracted a whos-who of basketball and entertainment greats, including Michael Jordan, Shaquille ONeal, Bill Russell, Magic Johnson, Jerry West, Tim Duncan, Dwyane Wade, Steph Curry, Rick Fox, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.Jordan spoke about the brief career overlap he enjoyed with Kobe.Jordan described Kobe as a little brother who would try to converse with him at all hours of the night.

Emergency Goalie David Ayres Helps Hurricanes Win in NHL Debut
02/24/2020 6:06am

David Ayres was sitting in the stands with his wife at Scotiabank Arena when Carolina Hurricanes goalie James Reimer went down with an injury.The on-call emergency netminder in Toronto, Ayers left his seat and got half-dressed into his gear on the off-chance something might happen to Carolinas second option, Petr Mrazek.Midway through the second period, Ayres noticed his cellphone started to blow up. What he didnt realize was that Mrazek had been hurt in a scary collision with Maple Leafs forward Kyle Clifford and was down on the ice.Next thing the 42-year-old Zamboni driver knew, he was walking down the tunnel and into the spotlight.And not long after, he had an improbable first NHL win. He is the oldest goalie in NHL history to win his regular-season debut. Ayres allowed goals on the first two shots he faced before settling down and stopping the next eight in a suffocating defensive performance by his new teammates as Carolina picked up a stunning 6-3 victory over the Maple Leafs on Saturday night. I had a couple of text messages that told me to get in there, Ayres said in front a throng of reporters. I hadnt seen the footage of Mrazeks injury. I was in the media room by myself and a guy came in and said, Get going. Get ready.It was wild, it was fun, said Ayres, who gets paid $500 and gets to keep his jersey.Ayres, who had a kidney transplant 15 years ago and wasnt sure if he would ever play hockey again, has been a practice goalie with the Leafs and the clubs American Hockey League affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, for the last eight years.The native of nearby Whitby, Ontario, faces shots from professional players on an almost-daily basis during the season but never thought hed be called into service in an NHL game.These guys were awesome, Ayres said. They said to me, Have fun with it, dont worry about how many goals go in, this is your moment, have fun with it.He did more than that, and was greeted with raucous cheers from the Hurricanes in their locker room after finishing a post-game TV interview.I had no idea I was going to get a shower before I got in the shower, Ayres, the games first star, said with a grin. I got one.Not long after the final buzzer, the Hurricanes were hawking T-shirts on Twitter sporting the stand-in goalies No. 90.Its pretty special, Hurricanes coach Rod BrindAmour said. I told the guys after the game, Thank him because that just gave us an incredible memory.Warren Foegele scored twice, Martin Necas had a goal and an assist, and Lucas Wallmark, Nino Niederreiter and Teuvo Teravainen provided the rest of the offense for Carolina.He probably dreams of playing in the National Hockey League, Foegele said of Ayres. What a moment for him. Something hell never forget, and something we wont either.Alexander Kerfoot, Pierre Engvall and John Tavares scored for Toronto, which beat the Hurricanes 8-6 at home on Dec. 23. Kasperi Kapanen and Tyson Barrie picked up two assists each for the Leafs. Frederik Andersen made 41 saves.Toronto was playing poorly before Mrazek went down with Carolina leading. Things didnt get much better, even though Tavares and Engvall scored on consecutive attempts to make it 4-3 through 40 minutes.The reality is that the game really just stayed the same, said Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe, whose players mustered just seven shots in the third. When the goalie switch happened, I talked to the team and said, If we dont change how were playing, they dont even need a goalie. Therere no chances, no shots, theres nothing happening.They didnt need a goaltender the way the game was going.Reimer started for the Hurricanes against his former team but left with a lower-body injury in the first after being bowled over in his crease. He was replaced by Mrazek, who made 31 saves in Fridays 5-2 home loss to the New York Rangers. But Carolinas second option went down after that thunderous encounter with Clifford as both players raced for the puck along the sideboards with 8:41 left in the second.That forced Ayres, whos been the emergency goalie in Toronto for about half the games this season and is available to either team, into action for the remainder of game between clubs battling for playoff positioning in the Eastern Conference.You kind of think, Oh well hows this gonna end up BrindAmour said. Thats incredible. Thats why you do this.After the bizarre second that saw Carolina score four times, give up two goals, lose Mrazek, and have Ayres pressed into action, the Hurricanes made it 5-3 just 53 seconds into the third after jumping on a turnover and beating Andersen in tight.Necas then made it 6-3 at 3:44 when he picked up a loose puck to finish off a chaotic sequence as boos rained down.The jeers continued on a Leafs power play later in the period and got louder as the period wore on, with some fans chanting Lets Go Raptors as the final minutes ticked down.We obviously didnt handle the circumstances of the game very well, Leafs captain John Tavares said. Might have been our poorest night of execution.We seemed like the team that played last night and traveled.Carolina trailed 1-0 after the first, but tied it at 5:46 of the second when Wallmark scored off a scramble. Niederrieter then blasted a one-timer on a power play at 9:43 before Foegele made it 3-1 at 10:49.Mrazek was out of the game 30 seconds later.Teravainen made it 4-1 with Clifford in the box for charging at 13:17, but Tavares scored on the first shot against Ayres, through the pads 19 seconds after that.Engvall buried a loose puck on Torontos next shot at 15:10 to make it 4-3.The Leafs, who were coming of an encouraging 4-0 win over Pittsburgh on Thursday, then got a power play fans screamed Shoot almost every time a Toronto player had the puck anywhere near the opposition net but the Hurricanes didnt allow anything through.Ayres made his first save late in the second on Auston Matthews as Carolina led 4-3 through a wild 40 minutes and shut things down in the third.These guys, Ayres said of what hell remember most. How great they were to me. The crowd in Toronto was unreal. Even though I was on the other team they were so receptive. Every time I made a save I could hear them cheering for me.Awesome.Carolina announced Sunday that Ayres will play in their game Tuesday night in Raleigh against the Dallas Stars.See you Tuesday, Davey the club said on its Twitter account. Ayres will be in the building on Tuesday and will be our VectorSecurity Siren SounderTheyre flying me down to Carolina for their game on Tuesday so Ill get to spend more time with the guys, which is good, Ayres said Toronto on Sunday at the Maple Leafs practice facility. Theyre a great team, great organization.Raleigh Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin also announced Tuesday will be David Ayres Day in the city.This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.
