Gennadiy Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) and Steve Rolls (19-0, 10 KOs) will clash on Saturday night in super middleweight bout contested at a catchweight of 164 pounds from Madison Square Garden in New York City, live and only on DAZN.And when two highly regarded gladiators prepare for combat, there are bets to be made. So, let’s take a closer look at Gennadiy Golovkin vs. Steve Rolls. Join DAZN to watch GGG vs. Rolls and 100+ fight nights a yearGennadiy Golovkin vs. Steve Rolls odds, expert pickOnline sportsbook proboxingodds.com has named Golovkin as a sizable favorite as of June 3. The logical theory is oddsmakers regard Golovkin as one of the best middleweights on the planet, and Rolls as the guy with a minimal chance of pulling off the upset.Golovkin comes in at minus -5000, which means you’d need to wager $5,000 to win $100. Meanwhile, Rolls is a plus +1200, meaning if you bet $100, you’d net $1,200. Put some money on this at William Hill before it’s too late and the odds start to lower.

Once you register, they will send you an email confirmation, and you will be able to log in and get started.Golovkin is coming off a narrow majority decision defeat — the first loss of his storied career — to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in their rematch back in September. Many boxing fans and pundits felt Golovkin had done enough to warrant a decision for the second straight time against the Mexican star. An immediate trilogy bout wasn’t in the cards, as Alvarez faced Daniel Jacobs on May 4 and won by unanimous decision.Rolls, who defeated KeAndrae Leatherwood by unanimous decision in December, seized the opportunity to take on Golovkin.MORE: Alvarez thinks he’s done with ‘GGG,’ but they’ll fight againThis is an exciting fight for Golovkin, his first under new trainer Jonathan Banks after ending his nine-year run with Abel Sanchez in April. Golovkin and Banks have only been together for about five weeks, so it will be hard for the 37-year-old to have everything down to a science under the guidance of the former trainer to Wladimir Klitschko. The biggest problems Golovkin had in both Alvarez fights was not fighting more on the inside to pound the body and using more movement to stay away from Alvarez’s shots. For Rolls, 35, he has to come in like he has everything to gain and nothing to lose, just like Andy Ruiz Jr. last Saturday in his upset win over Anthony Joshua. No one expects him to be much trouble for the Kazakhstan star. He’s fought the majority of his career in Canada and never faced anyone of substance. But that is what makes Rolls so dangerous: The fear of the unknown when the lights shine the brightest. All fighters react differently. Look at Ruiz. When the chips were in Joshua’s favor, Ruiz rose to the occasion.That said, it’s hard to see any outcome other than Golovkin destroying Rolls. He has a lot to prove that he’s still the “GGG” of old and that switching from Sanchez to Banks wasn’t a mistake. Although Golovkin should win in quick order, the odds on Rolls are too good to pass up, considering what happened last weekend.SN Pick: Gennadiy GolovkinBest Wager: Steve Rolls winning the fight; William Hill (+1200)
Joe Dean (Lindrick, Yorkshire) will be the defending champion of the Poncat Dutch Junior Open. This year the championship will take place at Toxandria Golf Club, near Breda, in the Netherlands on 17th – 20th July. The 19 year old boy international won the title on his maiden overseas event representing England Golf last July, prevailing at the second hole of a sudden death playoff with Dutch youngster Lars van Meijel after the pair had tied on 286, two under par. Dean will be joined this year by Harry Casey (Enfield, Middlesex), English champion Harry Ellis (Meon Valley, Hampshire, IoW & CI) and Bobby Keeble (Crowlands Heath, Essex). The Poncat Dutch Junior Open is a 72-hole stroke play competition for boys and girls under 21 years of age. It is also a counting event on the R&A’s World Amateur Ranking. Dean’s victory last July followed his second place in the Fairhaven Trophy and preceded his England debut in the Boys Home Internationals and his five wins from six games in helping Yorkshire to the Boys County Championship. This year, he has finished third in the Selborne Salver, fifth in the Hampshire Salver and equal sixth in the Bernard Darwin Salver. Casey, 20, was the English boy champion in 2011 when he also won the Duke of York Young Champions title and finish third on the Titleist/FootJoy England Golf Boys Order of Merit. This year, he has won the Selborne Salver, finished tied third in the Portuguese Amateur Championship and Hampshire Salver and made his full England debut against Spain in April. Ellis, 17, became English champion at Silloth-on-Solway a year ago and was called up by England for the Home Internationals in Scotland. He was a member of England’s winning team in the Canadian International Junior Challenge and is enjoying a successful 2013. He has won the Hampshire Junior Championship, finished first in the individual standings in the South East Boys Qualifying, runner-up in the Hampshire Hog and the Michel Carlhian Trophy in France and third in the McEvoy Trophy, while he was capped for the European Boys Team Championships. Keeble, 18, made his England debut in last year’s Boys Home Internationals after losing a playoff for the England under 18 Championship at Deal. He followed that with a joint second place in the South of England Boys Championship and third place in the Daily Telegraph Junior Championship. He also finished runner-up in the Western Province under 23 Stroke Play Championship in South Africa earlier this year and recently won the Essex Championship. The winners of the Poncat receive an entry into the KLM Dutch Open on the European Tour in September and the Dutch Ladies Open on the Ladies European Tour in 2014.

None of the main-line newspapers dwelled too much on her background, which has been well reported. She was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and Haitian father, moved to the United States when she was 3 and now lives in Florida where she has trained for more than a decade.In an interview Monday from New York on Japan’s TBS television, she was asked what she wants to do now. She replied in Japanese: “Have curried rice topped with a pork cutlet.” Then she slipped into English and said: “I am very honored. I don’t know how to say that in Japanese.”She gave some of the same answers in a similar interview with Japan’s NTV television.“She is such a lovable character,” said Seiji Miyane, the NTV talk show host.She smiled through the media pressure, which several newspapers have called a Japanese trait. Her broken Japanese works as an asset, apologizing occasionally for getting the wrong word — or not knowing the Japanese word at all.“She is not the type of person who asserts herself boldly, but she is shy and humble and that makes her look more like a Japanese,” Junko Okamoto, a communications specialist, wrote in the weekly magazine Toyokeizai.Okamoto also said Osaka could become a face of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, leading to big sponsorship deals.Forbes magazine has reported that Williams is the highest earning female athlete with income of $18 million per year, almost all from endorsements. The Evening Fuji tabloid newspaper, citing Forbes, speculated wildly about Osaka’s potential lifetime earnings. Its headline suggested she could earn $100 million.

(AP Photo/Koji Sasahara)TOKYO (AP) — Naomi Osaka’s halting Japanese, her manners — she bowed and apologized after beating Serena Williams in the U.S. Open final — and her simple charm have swelled national pride in Japan and eclipsed many questions about her mixed-race parentage in a famously insular country.Two days after becoming the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam tennis title, Osaka is still filling the front pages of the country’s three major daily newspapers and leads the discussions on talk shows.The perspective from Japan on Monday: Osaka is being embraced as Japanese despite her mixed background. National pride — at least for now — is overriding questions of cultural identity and what it means to be Japanese.Williams’ dramatic behavior during a chaotic final on Saturday, a hot topic in the United States and around the world, has been largely brushed aside in Japan with the focus on Osaka’s poise under pressure.Japan’s largest newspaper, Yomiuri, called Osaka a “new heroine that Japan is proud of” and characterized her appeal as “the contrast between her strength on the court and her innocent character off the court.”Yomiuri centered Osaka’s photograph holding the U.S. Open trophy at the top of its Monday front page — as did the two other large dailies. In a headline inside the paper, Yomiuri called her an “Overnight Queen — Powerful and Stable.”The Asahi newspaper also called her the “New Queen,” picking up on her mix of “strength and gentleness.” Sports and tabloid newspapers reporting Naomi Osaka’s victory in the U.S. Open tennis finals are sold at a newsstand in Tokyo, Monday, Sept. 10, 2018. (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara) The Mainichi, one of top three general circulation newspapers, noted that Osaka was wearing a dress at a victory celebration from a well-known Japanese designer.Osaka’s 73-year-old grandfather, Tetsuo Osaka, surfaced in several interviews from Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido, where he heads a fishing cooperative. He said he plans to meet his granddaughter when she plays next week in a tournament in Japan.Their relationship seems solid now, but the New York Times reported that for a more than a decade Naomi’s mother, Tamaki, had little contact with her family in Japan.Roland Kirishima, a photographer who is half Japanese and Scottish, criticized some internet comments questioning if Osaka is really Japanese, because of her darker skin color.“Look at the French soccer team that won the World Cup,” he wrote on Twitter. “Half of the players are immigrants’ sons or multi-racial. I’m surprised many people in Japan are still obsessed with racial purity. It’s 21st century already. Please overcome this type of insular prejudice.”It looks like Japan has taken at least a first step.___Stephen Wade on Twitter: http://twitter.com/StephenWadeAP___More AP tennis coverage: https://www.apnews.com/tag/apf-Tennis and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
LONDON (AP) — This was supposed to be the week Anthony Joshua completed his whirlwind six-year journey from Olympic gold medalist to undisputed world heavyweight champion.Deontay Wilder should have been the opponent, Las Vegas potentially the venue. Instead, Joshua has to take a detour.The 28-year-old Briton was back home in London on Thursday, ready to fulfil his mandatory obligations by facing Russian fighter Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium.It’s not the fight he wanted — Wilder, the WBC champion, remains his No. 1 priority — but he knows it’s another important step toward his ultimate goal of unifying the division.The last time Joshua fought at Wembley, it was in front of about 90,000 spectators against Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017. A similar-sized crowd is expected on Saturday.Joshua, the IBF, WBO and WBA titleholder, says “I feel relaxed and calm. It’s not new to me anymore. I feel like this is home and where I’m going to perform.”___More AP sports: https://apnews.com/tag/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Boxers, Britain’s Anthony Joshua, left, and Russia’s Alexander Povetkin pose for photographers with boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, centre, after a press conference at Wembley stadium in London, Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Jeff Capel gave his freshmen backcourt simple instructions Tuesday night: Attack the hole.The strategy worked as Trey McGowens scored 26 points, Xavier Johnson added 23 and Pittsburgh defeated Boston College 80-70 in the first round of the ACC Tournament.The explosive freshmen combined to shoot 14 of 28 from the field and make 19 of 26 free throws as the 14th-seeded Panthers won their second straight game since snapping a 13-game losing streak.“We’ve been at our best when we’ve been able to get downhill and attack,” Capel said. ”… I thought they were terrific. They dictated the pace, the tempo. They gave us confidence, and I thought that led to other guys stepping up and making big plays.”Jared Wilson-Frame chipped in with 16 points and nine rebounds for Pittsburgh (14-18).With the freshman getting to the basket, Pittsburgh was able to score on layups and outscore Boston College 48-16 in the paint.“They took over the game, just by attacking the rim,” Boston College coach Jim Christian said. “The first time we played them we did a great job of keeping them in front and them protecting the basket with our secondary defender. Today we did an awful job of both.”Nik Popovic had 21 points and nine rebounds to lead Boston College (14-17), which shot 35.6 percent from the field and trailed by as many as 27 in the second half before cutting it to nine with 58 seconds left.The Panthers closed the first half on a 23-5 run to take a commanding 36-21 lead at the break. Boston College failed to make a field goal in the final 9:17 before intermission and shot 25 percent.Johnson provided the boost with huge plays on both ends of the court for Pitt.He repeatedly got to the hole scoring 14 points, and had two steals that led to two layups. The Panthers picked up where they left off in the second half as McGowens scored nine of the team’s first 17 points.“That’s the key every game is attack,” Johnson said. “The last time we played them, they littered the paint, and I shot 3 for 19 from the field. Today I shot 7 for 14, and that was the difference.”SYRACUSE’S 2-3 ZONEThe victory propels the Panthers into Wednesday night’s second round matchup against former Big East rival Syracuse, the tournament’s sixth seed.Pitt likely won’t be able to get to the hole as much against Syracuse’s 2-3 zone, but McGowens said attacking is still important. “We have to attack them and make them close the gaps and get some kick-outs.”BIG PICTUREPittsburgh: The Panthers have taken their lumps this year winning only three regular season ACC games, but Johnson and McGowens are going to be trouble for the next couple of seasons. Both have NBA potential. “They are only going to get better,” Christian said.Boston College: The Eagles have to find something on offense, where they looked out of sync for most of the game. They were just 6 of 25 from beyond the 3-point arc and could really use a knockdown shooter.UP NEXT:Pittsburgh: The Panthers face Syracuse, who they lost to by nine points in both previous matchups this season.Boston College: Season over.___More AP college basketball: https://apnews.com/Collegebasketball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Pittsburgh’s Sidy N’Dir (11) shoots against Boston College’s Jared Hamilton during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in the Atlantic Coast Conference men’s tournament in Charlotte, N.C., Tuesday, March 12, 2019.

Facebook88Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Catherine (CJ) Pearce for Game Night to RememberFor the past 2 years, local favorite Game Night to Remember has been bringing together community members from around the South Sound for 24 hours of free, family-friendly fun. This year’s event on October 6 and 7 is expected to double in size and scope; and the volunteers hope to raise $10,000 toward ending Alzheimer’s disease!Event creator CJ Pearce poses with 2 Star Wars costumed characters from the 501st Legion. This Saturday from noon until 5pm, visitors can expect up to 6 costumed characters to meet and take photos with! Photo courtesy: Catherine (CJ) PearceGame Night to Remember (GNTR) is hosted at Gabi’s Olympic Cards and Comics in Lacey, which has recently finished a major expansion to double the size of the gameplay area. This growth allows room for GNTR to be divided into 5 major sections: freeplay board games, play-to-win games, RPGs (role-playing games), indie/demos, and large special events. Just like every year, there will be games for every player, from casual classics like Clue, to a version of Magic the Gathering called Battlebond. There will also be a general pub-style trivia challenge, and one entire team trivia event with only Harry Potter facts!The event’s creator, Catherine (CJ) Pearce, credits her success in creating the event with great support from local businesses. Olympia marketing company Fashionably Frank created a new website for the event and professional photographer Cast + Forge captures treasured moments from the event to help promote it.“Every year, I get a donation from nearly every business in Olympia who I contact.” CJ says. “It is a wonderful feeling to know that we live in a community that is always willing to give back so readily.” This support is what helps CJ to keep the event entirely free to the public. Hard work and generosity is also how Game Night to Remember has maintained no operating funds for 3 years, giving 100% of every dollar raised directly to the Alzheimer’s Association.This model for fundraising is very important to CJ, who lost her dad, Nick, to the disease in 2014. Nick Pearce received a diagnosis with Alzheimer’s in his mid-50s and had to retire much earlier than expected from his job as a high school Art teacher. He received cutting edge treatments and care, but passed away at the young age of 61.“There are 2 things that really resonate with me about this disease and why we have to stop it,” CJ explains, “the first is how different this disease is from all the others, because there is absolutely no hope. People have survived stage 4 cancer, but there has never been an Alzheimer’s survivor. The second thing is that your lifestyle choices don’t matter. There is no blame or cause or prevention or link that has been substantiated. You could be the healthiest person alive (and my dad was extremely healthy), but this disease might take your mind and then your body, anyway. This is why we have to stop it.”CJ works directly with the Washington State Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to ensure that her efforts go toward the needs and support within our state.You can help CJ and her team of 13 volunteers to be a huge success, and have a blast while doing it! Head over to Olympic Cards and Comics between 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 6, and 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 7 to show support, learn new games, and win prizes!
