Guyana may be out of CONCACAF’s 2017 Club championship

first_imgBy Ras WadadaTHE current buzz circling the ‘Beautiful Game’ here in Guyana is that the country will not be represented at this year’s CONCACAF Club championship in what appears to be non-participation due to not being in good standing with the Guyana Football Federation (GFF).National Club Champions, Slingerz FC and runners-up, Alpha United along with Pele FC and GFC have all had their GFF’s membership status withdrawn after they decided not to participate in the second season of the GFF-STAG Elite League which belatedly got underway last November.Their decision to pull-out of the nation’s top football competition, despite CONCACAF’s intervention on their grievances and guidance in the matter, is now proving to be a costly one, not only to the club and players, but also to the country.The term, ’not in good standing with the GFF’ is unhealthy for the clubs and in essence means that their inclusion in this year’s CONCACAF Club Championship has been revoked.From all indications, the four Clubs will have to start all over again by reintegrating with their former Member Association’s (MAs) League before returning to the Elite League.The feeder competition or format for promotion to the Elite League is yet to be announced by the GFF, though it is certain that the team ending at the bottom of the Elite League season-two will be automatically relegated while the second to last side will enter a play-off with qualifiers from the nine MAs of the GFF.It means that there will be room for five teams to be elevated to season-three of the Elite League ‘2017-18’ which now creates greater interest and competitiveness in the various Leagues of the MAs.The Georgetown FA will surely be highly competitive with the likes of Pele, GFC and Alpha along with Western Tigers, Riddim Squad, Police and Santos.More importantly, clubs should get organised to register as a FIFA/CONCACAF Licensed Club which is a main criterion for entering the Elite League.What is of greater interest is what will transpire during this first month of the year in the transfer window of the GFF.Already there have been speculations on the directions of a number of players destined for the second half of the Elite League, though there has been no official transfer after the first week.The office of the GFF will become busy with transfers as soon as the official word from CONCACAF on Slingerz and Alpha’s participation or non-participation is released.last_img read more

Claressa Shields’ potentially historic fight vs. Ivana Habazin rescheduled for Oct. 5

first_imgJoin DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearShields’ homecoming fight was originally scheduled for Aug. 17, but had to be postponed in June after she suffered a minor injury to her right knee. The 24-year-old vows her knee is fine, and that she’ll be ready to go in less than two months, attempting to add another piece of boxing history to her resume.“I’m more excited than ever. I’m 100 percent recovered and I can’t wait to get back in the ring and fight in front of my hometown fans in Flint as undisputed champion of the world,” Shields said in a Showtime Boxing statement. “Having the opportunity to become world champion in a third weight division faster than any man or woman in boxing history will make Oct. 5 a night I will cherish forever. It’s another big step in history, and giant step forward in lifting women’s boxing on the road to equality.” Here to make history. @Claressashields takes on @IvanaHabazin for the WBO Junior Middleweight Title 10/5 at 9PM ET/6PM PT on @Showtime. #ShieldsHabazin pic.twitter.com/Tp4Pi3EXmU— SHOWTIME Boxing (@ShowtimeBoxing) August 6, 2019 Shields (9-0, 2 KOs) is coming off a dominant unanimous decision victory over a previously unbeaten Christina Hammer in April to become only the second undisputed women’s boxing champion in the sport’s history. (Cecilia Brækhus was the first and Katie Taylor became the third woman to accomplish the feat in June).Habazin (20-3, 7 KOs), who is ranked first by the WBO at 154 pounds, will be making her U.S. debut. The Croatian fighter won the IBF welterweight title in 2014 and last defeated Eva Bajic in Zagreb, Croatia in December 2018. Claressa Shields already has two Olympic gold medals and the undisputed middleweight crown to her name.She’ll look to continue making history on Oct. 5 when she faces former world champion Ivana Habazin for the vacant WBO junior middleweight title at the Dort Federal Event Center in Shields’ hometown of Flint, Mich., live on Showtime (9 p.m. ET). A win over Habazin would make Shields the fastest fighter in boxing history — male or female — to become a three-division world champion. She has already won the super middleweight and middleweight titles in just nine pro fights. “It’s an honor and a dream to fight in the U.S. on national television,” Habazin said in a news release statement. “A lot of fighters never get this opportunity in their careers, so I know I need to make the most of it. I’ve been training for this fight since June and the postponement has only given me more time to get ready. I intend to put my best effort forward to impress the fans and show that I am for real.”Prior to the rescheduling of this fight, Shields had spoken about fighting Braekhus or, more recently, boxing UFC double champion Amanda Nunes and crossing over to the Octagon for a pair of megabouts (which she vows would be better than Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Conor McGregor).While those fights can still take place, Shields will look for her latest slice of boxing history first.last_img read more
