Club in Damascus

Hard-core boxing fans decried last month's Floyd Mayweather--Conor McGregor bout as a farce - an overhyped mockery of an event designed to generate a huge payday Nike Air Force 1 Shoes , boxing's reputation be damned. While these fans weren't 100 percent wrong, last weekend's draw between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin definitely stole some of their rhetorical thunder.


Without question, Mayweather-McGregor was a gaudy, made-for-television spectacle. And while its first media event generated tons of interest Nike Air Force 1 Ultra , subsequent events were both anti-climactic (repetitive gimmicks) and borderline offensive (allegations of various types of slurs).


But the fight itself wasn't the competitive sham many boxing fans thought it would be. The scrappy McGregor took the fight to Mayweather early and held his own into the 10th round, when his conditioning limits (MMA fights are shorter than boxing matches) allowed Mayweather to swoop in and score a technical knockout.


In the end, McGregor's performance embarrassed neither himself nor the sport of mixed martial arts. The same cannot be said about Saturday's controversial draw between Alvarez and Golovkin. Not only did the final outcome prove unsatisfying to fans, bettors Nike Air Force 1 Low , and sportsbooks (boxing's holy trinity); judge Adelaide Byrd's confounding 118-110 scorecard in favor of Alvarez exposed one of boxing's long-held dirty little secrets: inept judging.


And although Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Bob Bennett has promised to give Byrd "a little break" before allowing her to judge future big-time bouts, the damage has already been done. The Alvarez-Golovkin match-up was the perfect chance for boxing to capitalize on the afterglow of Mayweather-McGregor and regain some of its past glory. Instead, boxing delivered a "same as it ever was" moment.


A sport that launched the careers of convicted criminals Don King (manslaughter) and Mike Tyson (rape) doesn't get to claim the high moral ground very often. Saturday's showcase in Las Vegas proved that the action inside the ring is still just as shady as the action outside of it.


SHANE Lowry of Ireland has pulled out of the Olympics because of concerns over the Zika virus.


Lowry said yesterday he received medical advice that he should not travel to Rio de Janeiro. Lowry recently married and said he hopes to start a family soon.


Lowry is the fifth golfer to withdraw specifically because of Zika. Earlier yesterday, world No. 1 Jason Day said he would not be competing. Rory McIlroy cited Zika in pulling out last week Nike Air Force 1 High , while Charl Schwartzel of South Africa and Marc Leishman of Australia previously withdrew.


The Irish golf team in Rio will not have anyone in the top 100 in the world. Lowry said he would represent Ireland in this year’s World Cup in Australia.


Day’s pullout cost golf its No. 1 player as it returns from a century-long Olympic absence.


“The sole reason for my decision is my concerns about the possible transmission of the Zika virus and the potential risks that it may present to my wife’s future pregnancies and to future members of our family,” Day said in a statement. “I have always placed my family in front of everything else in my life.”


Day and wife Ellie had their second child in November, and he says they want more children.


Brazil has been the hardest hit of the 60 countries that have reported an outbreak of Zika, the mosquito-borne virus linked to severe birth defects.


Australia has three players in the top 50 in the world Nike Air Force 1 Mid , and all of them have withdrawn — 28-year-old Day, Adam Scott (No. 8) and Leishman (No. 39).


Scott was the first to withdraw. He said Olympics were never his priority in a year in which the schedule is crammed with major championships. The sport has not been part of the Games since 1904 in St Louis.


Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa cited scheduling concerns when he withdrew. Vijay Singh of Fiji also mentioned Zika but was more bothered by the schedule. Graeme McDowell, who was in line to replace McIlroy, withdrew late last week because his wife is due with their second child a few weeks after the Olympics.
