Winky Wright on Pacquiao: Bag and mitts don’t hit back, Thurman does

Inquirer Breaking News - 5 hours 6 sec ago
LAS VEGAS---There's an old adage in boxing that says fighters get old overnight. Saturday will be that time for Manny Pacquiao when he meets the much younger Keith Thurman in a welterweight showdown, according to boxing great Winky Wright. "Father time is undefeated. Father time gets everybody. We're all great at one time but when you get old, you lose that step, that one tenth of a second that took us from being great to normal. When that great to normal hits, that's when things are going to happen," said Wright, who is also an old sparring partner of Thurman.

‘Avengers’ directors eye ‘Avatar’ record, plot Marvel actor movies

Inquirer Breaking News - 5 hours 1 min ago
"Avengers: Endgame" directors Joe and Anthony Russo said Friday it would be a "big thrill" to pass the all-time box office record held by "Avatar," as they set out plans to collaborate with a number of different stars from the Marvel superhero universe. Smash hit "Endgame" is inching ever closer to surpassing James Cameron's $2.788 billion haul. It is currently just $5 million short, and was still playing in 1,400 US theaters at the weekend despite being released in April. "James Cameron has always been an idol of ours---he fed our passion for filmmaking from the beginning, and to be so close to one of his great films is really special," said Anthony at San Diego Comic-Con, the...

Dung and Dragons: Myanmar kids dodge cows to play rugby

Inquirer Breaking News - 5 hours 12 min ago
Sidestepping cowpats and garbage, Myanmar's only home-grown junior rugby side trains on the outskirts of Yangon, preparing to take on children from the city's well-heeled international schools. When the Little Dragons aren't running barefoot on the litter-strewn dirt, the makeshift field on the outskirts of Yangon is sometimes used as a cockfighting ring or a fairground. But every Sunday, boys and girls aged five to 18 from Yangon's North Dagon township can be seen playing touch rugby, an incongruous sight in a country where the sport is barely known. As novice monks file past collecting alms, the players shoo away cantankerous cattle to begin warm-up drills under the tutela...

Polluted, bike-hostile Brussels to slam on the brakes

Inquirer Breaking News - 5 hours 20 min ago
  BRUSSELS, Belgium -- Brussels has made its choice: to reduce emissions and encourage greener, two-wheeled transport options, the road speed limit will have to come down. From 2021, any car that escapes the gridlock on the streets of Europe's capital will still be limited to only 30 kilometers per hour (kph) -- less than 19 mph. The Belgian city is following in the footsteps of Berlin and Madrid, but road-users are not convinced that the measure will make any real difference. Restrictions already apply to around 55 percent of the city, but the capital region's left-Green government is rolling the limit out beyond residential districts. By January 1, 2021, cars, v...

Maisie Williams, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Liam Cunningham, Isaac Hempstead Wright and others took the stage at San Diego Comic-Con Friday evening for a goodbye panel and found some waiting at their places.
