Mayweather vs. McGregor Post-Fight Press Conference

Image
Figures prove Conor McGregor landed more punches on Floyd Mayweather than Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather's plan was to let McGregor punch himself out because of McGregor's known cardio issues. With all the power McGregor delivers with each punch, it was only a matter of rounds until McGregor began breathing heavy through the mouth. Of course McGregor is going to land a good amount, its the part of the strategy.
There's all sorts of possible explanations. Maybe Mayweather isn't at the top of his game compared to the other fight. It's been years since he retired before. Or maybe he was just not taking McGregor very seriously, allowing him to land a few because it wouldn't really do any damage but it encourages Connor to keep expending energy.

Either way, the fights were vastly different, so comparing the stats is fairly meaningless. After seeing that fight, would anyone really want to claim that McGregor was a better…

Can be a career ending injury - Calvin Stengs

Image
Calvin Stengs lands on his own leg at a very bad angle. Goes over on his knee, bends at a nasty angle underneath him. Wouldn't be surprised if all four major knee ligaments are damaged, medial collateral (the inner ligament) is definitely broken.
Full blown knee dislocation after landing on it very awkwardly.

Too squeamish to watch, but that is a major blow to AZ Alkmaar. Calvin Stengs was their best player towards the end of last season, with many expecting this to be his season. And the extra sad thing is that he is that people were really exited about him and was considered one the new 'gems' for the upcoming season in the Eredivisie.
This can ruin his career if it's really bad.

Arsenal vs Chelsea 1-1 Penalty 4-1 - Highlights

Image
Arsenal looked much sharper and fitter in the midfield today, as they were able to overrun the midfield on multiple occasions. Chelsea just looked far too slow transitioning, need to build up their fitness to hit the ground running first game of the season, really missed Hazard. I was really impressed by Xhaka being positionally much more disciplined today, whilst showing for the ball from the defence, he was awful connecting the team together last season but did a much better job today. However, the worrying thing for Arsenal even though this is a glorified pre season game is their organisation defensively. They have a proneness to switch off at the back and fail to organise themselves, as seen for the Chelsea goal not one player organised the defence to push out, and not one person looked around them to pick up a man.


That was a fun watch. Anyone can miss a penalty so that doesn't worry me but Chelsea first half performance was scandalous. Chelsea need 2 or 3 new faces to provid…
