Hatton Starts Vegas Life With A Victory

Posted on January 21, 2007. Filed under: Boxing, Sport |

Ricky Hatton reclaimed the IBF light-welterweight crown with a points victory over Juan Urango on his Las Vegas debut.

The Hitman needed all his ringsmarts to take his fourth world title in as many fights, winning back the one that set him on the way to boxing superstardom.

His unanimous win (119-109 on all three cards) was a far cry from Kostya Tszyu and that heady summer’s night in Manchester, yet it was enough to overcome a champion that might have been one-dimensional, but was as immovable as he was muscular.

LIVERPOOL 2 – 0 CHELSEA (“Result !”)

Posted on January 20, 2007. Filed under: Football, Sport |

Saturday 20 January 2007 12:45 , Barclays Premiership

First half goals from Dirk Kuyt and Jermaine Pennant have given Liverpool an excellent 2-0 victory over Chelsea in Rafa Benitez’s 100th Premiership game at Anfield on Saturday. Liverpool continued the fine Premiership form that has now seen them take 24 points out of a possible 27 after Dirk Kuyt’s ninth goal of the season was added to by a brilliant first for the club for Jermaine Pennant.

This match was billed as the first leg of a weekend that would see the top four ‘go to war’, and Liverpool won the first battle after they put Chelsea to the sword with two goals in a dominant opening 18 minutes.

The Reds flew at Chelsea from the first whistle and they took the lead after just four minutes through Dirk Kuyt. Injuries to Ricardo Carvalho and John Terry had forced Jose Mourinho into a makeshift defence and Kuyt wasted no time taking advantage as his first touch fooled Ferreira and gave him the chance to beat Petr Cech from eight yards.

Chelsea were visibly shaken and a superb pass from Xabi Alonso put Riise one on one with Cech, and although Cech saved well, there was to be to be no respite for Chelsea because Jermaine Pennant made it 2-0 with his first Liverpool goal in the 18th minute.

It came when Essien could only half clear Gerrard’s cross and when the ball fell to Pennant on the right edge of the penalty area, he chested the ball down before smashing an unstoppable right footed volley into the roof of the net.

It was a wonderful moment for Pennant and Anfield rose to acclaim it, but perhaps more importantly, it was a hammer blow to Chelsea because they rarely threatened to or looked likely to overturn the deficit it produced.

As you’d expect, Chelsea came into the game a lot more in the second half, but it was still Liverpool who were creating the better goal scoring chances and Peter Crouch worked Cech again when he got his head to Pennant’s 58th minute cross.

John Arne Riise has made a habit of scoring special goals against Chelsea, but he would have eclipsed them all if his 61st minute 35 yard rocket hadn’t smashed back of the crossbar. Peter Crouch tried to convert the rebound as Riise and most of Anfield stood with their hands on their heads.

Chelsea continued to toil away as you’d expect defending Champions to do, but they couldn’t make an impact and Pepe Reina will have enjoyed one of his quieter days. And at the other end it took some fine second half defending from Paulo Ferreira and Michael Essien to keep the scoreline at 2-0.

Liverpool can now enjoy a well earned rest in the knowledge that they are definitely on the up after another impressive win.

Brand new instructional video web site VideoJug has a detailed video tutorial teaching the “perfect golf swing.”

I’ve been wanting to direct our readers to VideoJug for a couple of days now (I like their focus on how-to videos), but I had trouble finding a video that really stood out. That said, with the weekend almost upon us, what better time to get your golf game in check than a Friday afternoon? Check out the video after the jump.
