We are going to have an exacting eliminator against him, in order to face Stevenson for the WBC championship. It is an honour and a privilege to fight with Alvarez and if I defeat him I will probably go for the championship with Stevenson, which is my golden dream,” said a loquacious, thus far from mute Bute, adding:“I was already a champion at 168 pounds, but now I want to climb to the 175 pounds division.

(REUTERS) – Arsenal slumped to a last-gasp 2-1 Premier League defeat at relegation-threatened Brighton & Hove Albion yesterday in a blow to the London club’s chances of securing European football next season.Frenchman Neal Maupay struck the winner five minutes into stoppage time after Nicolas Pepe’s delightful second-half opener had been cancelled out by Lewis Dunk.The defeat left the Gunners, who lost keeper Bernd Leno to injury in the first half, in ninth place with 40 points from 30 games, six behind fifth-placed Manchester United.The result came three days after Mikel Arteta’s side suffered a 3-0 rout at Manchester City as the Premier League returned after a three-month hiatus due to the coronavirus health crisis. Brighton are 15th on 32 points, five points above third-from-bottom Bournemouth, who have a game in hand.Arsenal had four attempts in the opening 10 minutes – more than in the entire game against Manchester City – but they still could not find the net.Their best chance came in the 31st minute when Alexandre Lacazette’s header was tipped away by Mathew Ryan after the Frenchman had been set up by Bukayo Saka, Arsenal’s most dangerous player who struck the bar in the eighth minute. Leno was carried off the pitch on a stretcher in the 40th minute with a possible knee injury after a tussle with Maupay.He was replaced by Emiliano Martinez, who made his first Premier League appearance since 2017 and was tested right away by Aaron Mooy.Pepe broke the deadlock in the 68th with a splendid curled effort into the far top corner.It took Brighton seven minutes to level, with Dunk forcing the ball in after Maupay’s header had been blocked on the line by Rob Holding following a corner.Five minutes into stoppage time, substitute Alexis Mac Allister played the ball forward and Maupay collected it after letting it run through his legs and flicked it past the keeper to inflict a second consecutive defeat on Arsenal.
Fresh off two convincing wins to start their 2016 campaign, the No. 2 USC women’s water polo team will travel to La Jolla to play in the Triton Invitational this weekend.The Trojans will square off against Santa Clara at 8 a.m. Saturday and the winner of the UC San Diego-Indiana game at 2:40 p.m. If USC comes away with both wins Saturday, they will advance to the semifinals at 12:30 p.m. Sunday and to the championship at 5:50 p.m. the same day.In order to claim the title, the Women of Troy will likely have to get past top-ranked UCLA in the championship match.“We’ve been conditioning hard and working on our team chemistry to get ready for big games,” junior two-meter Brigitta Games said. “This weekend will test our hard work.”The Trojans will lean on junior two-meter Avery Peterson, one of their captains and the leading scorer in the conference, averaging 4.5 goals per game early on in the season.“It gives me confidence knowing I can come out and score, but I have to give a lot of credit to my teammates with setting me up with those opportunities,” Peterson said. “I’m thankful for them being a part of this team.”Pre-season NCAA and MPSF women’s water polo is in full force after a packed weekend of match-ups. While USC took down UC San Diego and Whittier this past weekend, top-ranked Stanford fell to the No. 2 spot after losing to Cal 5-2 in Stanford’s own tournament.Following the upset, UCLA and USC have both taken over the No. 1 and 2 spots, respectively, in the rankings. The Trojans outscored UC San Diego and Whittier by a combined score a 45-6.“Our goal was to focus on defense and keep the other team to a low score,” Peterson said. “When we have good defense, it helps produce our offensive game.”Heading into this week, the Trojans hope to cling on to their top two spot. The Women of Troy faced off with the Brazilian national team Wednesday to get ready for the weekend games.Last season, USC won the Triton Invitational, sweeping four opponents and beating UC Irvine 10-5 in the title match.
