(AP Photo/Peter Dejong)FOIX, France— Warren Barguil delivered a stylish victory to France on Bastille Day, winning a fast and furious truncated Stage 13 where Fabio Aru had to work hard to retain his overall race lead.Barguil rode into the finish in Foix as part of a four-man group and took the win with a final sprint after adeptly negotiating the last U-bend on a bridge over the Ariege river on Friday.ADVERTISEMENT At 101 kilometers (63 miles), the stage from Saint-Girons was the shortest of the race, barring the two time-trials. With three Pyrenees climbs, it delivered exactly what Tour organizers were hoping for: Full-on racing, with the French victory as the cherry on top.Part chess-match, part test of speed and climbing strength, Chris Froome and his Team Sky used an array of tactics to try to regain the initiative after he lost the yellow jersey on Thursday to Aru, cracking on a savage final climb.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

He was joined by fellow Spaniard Alberto Contador, looking to make a splash on what has otherwise has been a lackluster Tour for the two-time champion.Together, they built a lead but were caught by Nairo Quintana, a podium finisher at three previous Tours, and by Barguil in the closing section of the last climb. From there, the foursome sped together into Foix, overlooked by its imposing 11th century castle decorated with a French tricolor of red, white and blu , where Barguil set French hearts alight with the win. 787 earthquakes recorded in 24 hours due to restive Taal Volcano Missile-capable frigate BRP Jose Rizal inches closer to entering PH Navy’s fleet Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite MOST READ Duterte’s ‘soft heart’ could save ABS-CBN, says election lawyer End of his agony?

Winning start Vegas debutGolovkin, who will be making his Las Vegas debut, has fought his entire career at 160 pounds (72.5 kg) while Alvarez, 27, fought just once above 155 — in his last fight against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.The undefeated Golovkin, whose World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation titles will be on the line, said he is expecting the toughest fight of his career against a boxer six years his junior.“This is my biggest fight,” he said. “I worked hard to become of champion of the world. I worked hard with Abel (trainer Sanchez) to stay champion of the world.”Alvarez also expects a difficult fight.“He is the most dangerous opponent of my career, but I’m ready for him and what’s next to come,” said the former WBC and WBA super welterweight champion.ADVERTISEMENT End of his agony?

(AP Photo/John Locher)Las Vegas, United States — Now that the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor circus has left town, attention shifts to Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez and their showdown for middleweight boxing supremacy.For those who were disappointed by last month’s so-called superfight between a boxer and a UFC fighter that was staged before a less-than capacity crowd, Saturday’s sold out world title contest at the same T-Mobile Arena will be welcome change.ADVERTISEMENT “We know that in fights, it takes two to tango. I’m ready, and you know what you’ll get from me.”Alvarez, who is gunning for his 50th career win, is coming off a lopsided win over of Chavez on May 6. He beat Chavez by unanimous decision as all three judges scored it 120-108.In his last fight, Golovkin outpointed Daniel Jacobs at Madison Square Garden in New York. Jacobs had an unexpected surge over the final three rounds before losing by a narrow decision which led some to believe that the 35-year-old Golovkin might be starting to show his age.Alvarez’s biggest fight before this one was a 12-round loss to Mayweather in 2013 in an entertaining fight which Mayweather deserved to win. Alvarez was also held to a draw by journeyman Jorge Juarez in 2006 when he was 15.Alvarez’s trainer Eddy Reynoso said his fighter has improved a lot since the Mayweather loss.Learn from mistakes“He is more mature, a more complete fighter,” said Reynoso on Thursday at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. “You always learn something from victories but defeats teach you more.“You can see the mistakes you made and you learn not to go that route again. He learned a lot from that defeat to become a better fighter.”Golovkin is one of the best conditioned athletes in the sport. He even missed the birth of his second child on Friday because he was in the gym training. He stayed in the gym for two hours after his wife, Alina, gave birth to the couple’s first daughter.Golovkin may be the champion but he is not the overwhelming favorite and Sanchez says the crowd inside T-Mobile will be decidedly for Alvarez.Golovkin said even if the crowd is for Alvarez he will enter and leave the ring as the champion.center_img OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson A costly, catty dispute finally settled A costly, catty dispute finally settled It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Break new ground Ex-NBA player sentenced to prison for selling stolen guns End of his agony?

So in the offseason, I adjusted, and now that we’re under new management, they’ve been giving us confidence and I think that’s the reason why we played well,” he said.That confidence was evident for Camson, who shot 9-of-19 from the field.“Coach Chris (Gavina) always tells us that if you’re open, take it. Why not? That’s what we’re looking for. We can’t just execute and once we’re open, we won’t shoot it. So that’s what we have to do,” he said in Filipino.Kia took flak for its offseason moves, Camson believes that the way his team performed in the curtain raiser did show glimpses of its potential.ADVERTISEMENT Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone LATEST STORIESlast_img read more
