Gurias pull off grinding win over Mioks

first_imgRugby League BY JANET KARI The Rabaul Gurias managed to pull off a 22-12 win over the Enga Mioks in the PNG National Rugby League Competition main game held at the Lae Rugby League oval yesterday. The Gurias were the first to put points on the board with the opening try to winger Konnie Bernard after several close attempts went begging to take a 4-0 lead. The Gurias continued their dominence inside the Mioks territory with another try to centre former PNG Hunters Edward Goma with an unconverted try to extend their lead to 8-0. The Mioks desperate to hit-back finally got a break through via a penalty and then slipped in a late unconverted try to trail the Gurias 8-6 at half-time. Following the break, the refreshened Gurias knew they had to score first to control the match. With their wealth of experience, the Tolais landed a penalty, followed by a converted try 15 minutes later to make it 16-6, then new signing in five-eighth Allan Simbiri intercepted a pass to score a runway try to take their lead to 22-6. However, the Mioks came back in typical determined fashion, but could only manage a consolation try to give the Gurias the 10 point victory.last_img read more

Tyson Fury splits from cartel boss Daniel Kinahan after brokering Anthony Joshua fight with Bob Arum taking over talks

first_img People Slammed By Massive Waves 4 Best caption wins🏆 Credit @4×4 Amazing movies best funny animals TYSON FURY has reportedly split with the controversial advisor who masterminded his two-fight mega-money deal with Anthony Joshua.Daniel Kinahan, the alleged boss of Ireland’s Kinahan cartel running a drugs and murder empire, was personally thanked by the WBC king for brokering the recent agreement with AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn.Tyson Fury was guided back to boxing by Daniel KinahanBut Fury’s American promoter, 88-year-old Bob Arum, has told the Telegraph that while he and Fury still “love, admire and respect” the Dubai-based businessman, he will not be officially involved in ongoing negotiations.Top Rank boss Arum said: “Over the weekend I’ve had a lot of conversations with Tyson Fury and what we both decided is that myself, Top Rank and Fury will do all negotiations for fights in the future. “Whether it’s for Joshua or Deontay Wilder or anybody else. We’ve informed Eddie Hearn about that. He knows where to go for the negotiations. “Tyson and I have had long negotiations about it. That’s the way it’s going to be.Top Rank boss Bob Arum (left) is a huge fan of Daniel Kinahan“We’ve talked with Dan, who Tyson and I both love and admire and respect, and he understands that it’s best the negotiations on Tyson’s side be handled that way. “Both Tyson and I have each discussed this with Dan and he is amenable and satisfied and wished us luck. He only wants the best for Tyson Fury.”While Daniel Kinahan has no criminal convictions, he is believed to hold a leading role in the €1billion drugs cartel, which he inherited from his father.The Kinahan cartel has claimed the lives of 50 people in their reign of terror across Europe. Daniel, the eldest son of drugs kingpin, Christy “Dapper Don” Kinahan, has attempted to grow his influence in the world of boxing in recent years.He helped Fury back into boxing after his mental health breakdown and is regularly praised by a growing number of boxers, including fellow Brit world champ Billy Joe Saunders.However, when his involvement in the Fury vs AJ deal was made public, the story – that had previously remained contained on Ireland’s front pages – went around the world.Daniel Kinahan founded the MGM/MTK boxing management firm but is no longer directly involvedCredit: Refer to CaptionIrish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar called for any fights that involved Kinahan to be boycotted and both BT Sport and Sky Sports were contacted by Irish MP Neale Richmond, advising them to research who they might be dealing with.Kelly described Kinahan as: “An individual from our country who, according to the High Court, is a very senior figure in organised crime on a global scale, and according to CAB [Ireland’s Criminal Assets Bureau] has controlled and managed operations of the Kinahan organised crime group for some time.”Both BT and Sky, who were expected to enter a bidding war for the mouthwatering All-British clash between Fury and WBA, IBF and WBO king Joshua, released statements distancing themselves from the talks.Bahrain sports firm Kinahan, who had recently celebrated agreeing a partnership with him, will also cut all ties with the alleged gangster and now Arum claims he will have no part of Fury’s future career.He said: “First of all there’s the negotiations to finalise for Deontay Wilder, we will do that on Tyson’s behalf with Premier Boxing Champions. “But when I say Bob Arum, I mean Top Rank people. We’re one entity. We’re working now with venues in Nevada and in Texas to do that Fury-Wilder sometime in December. “And also to negotiate with Eddie and Joshua and with any site that will make a proposal for the Fury vs Joshua fight, assuming Joshua beats Kubrat Pulev and Fury is successful with Wilder.”Eddie Hearn says he was ‘a little surprised’ by the uproar over Daniel Kinahan being praised by Tyson Fury Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 Source: Boxing – thesun.co.ukcenter_img 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures!
