target for Birmingham in Antworten

Kell Brook expects Manny Pacquiao to win back the WBO world welterweight title on Saturday and hopes they can meet in a 2017 unification fight.Pacquiao (58-6-2, 38 KOs) challenges Jessie Vargas for the belt he lost when he was unanimously out-pointed by Floyd Mayweather Jr in boxings richest ever fight in May 2015.Filipino Pacquiao, 37, now combines a political career with boxing and will put himself in the frame for a bigger bout if he defeats Vargas (27-1, 10 KOs) at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.Brook (36-1, 25 KOs), the IBF world welterweight champion, is recovering from a broken eye socket sustained in a fifth-round defeat to middleweight No. 1 Gennady Golovkin last September. But he has been looking ahead to next year.Of course I would be interested in the winner [of Pacquiao-Vargas], Brook told ESPN.All the fans were saying I didnt fancy fighting the best fighters, but I have gone in there with the best in the world in Golovkin, and Im ready to do it again.Im after the biggest and best fights out there, those are the ones that are going to get me up for it.Once you have become world champion, you need special fights to really keep you motivated in training. A world title unification fight would do that.I see Vargas getting some success, but I just think with Pacquiaos experience, having been in with the better opponents, hes going to have too much.But I dont see Pacquiao stopping him -- hell win on points. Hes had a lot of time out: is his passion still there? It could catch up with you at that age, so hes got to be careful, and that makes the fight interesting.Vargas is a good fighter -- hes a world champion -- but hes not the best out there. Theres not massive margins at this level, but I dont think hes in the super league with the likes of Keith Thurman, Danny Garcia and myself.Unless he shows us something Ive not see before, I dont see him winning.Brook, 30, was being lined up to face Vargas when talks stalled and he was instead offered the chance to step up two weight divisions and challenge Golovkin.He has until Feb. 24 to make up his mind about whether to defend his IBF welterweight title or step up a division.The Sheffield boxers mandatory challenger is American Errol Spence, but he has yet to decide which weight class his future lies in.My weight has settled down so I could still make welterweight. Ive got Spence on the horizon and theres the likes of [WBC champion] Garcia and Amir Khan as well, but I dont know yet, Brook said.The eye socket is healing well, but I still have some stitches in my mouth where they went into my cheek during the operation.Im looking forward to getting back in the gym and seeing what direction Im heading in next. I need to make sure my eye is 100 percent before I start doing that. Im looking at getting back in spring next year.

Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC failed to make the postseason while Montreal Impact fell at the first hurdle losing heavily to Houston Dynamo in the Eastern Conference Knockout Round. Authentic Avonte Maddox Jersey . There was no hesitation from the 40th-ranked Pospisil, from Vernon, B.C., who admitted that he cut back on his training sessions over the last few days to conserve energy as the long ATP season finishes next week at the Paris Masters. Wholeasale Eagles Jerseys . Here are his mid-season NBA awards. MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level.Birmingham boss Gary Rowett says there is still more to come from his side as they push for a Championship play-off spot. The Blues are currently in ninth place and are just two points behind sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday - with Cardiff and Ipswich sandwiched in the middle - but they have a crucial game in hand over their rivals.Speaking to the FL72 Podcast, Rowett believes the positivity and ambition of the team means there is still more to come from his side after their incredible turnaround over the last 18 months. I still think theres potential, he said. We havent hit the ceiling on what we can achieve, but what the team are doing is giving us everything they can at the moment in terms of their energy, effort and commitment. Were really pleased with what weve done so far but were still very positive and ambitious. Theres more to come and were thoroughly trying to search for that golden recipe of these last few games that can see us move into one of those play-off spots.We have a string of three home games about six games from the finish so our aim really is to still be in the mix by then. Birmingham City are two points from the play-off places with 11 games to play We have to keep working incredibly hard and hope that those three home games could be an amazing week for the club and the fans. But weve got a lot of work to do in the meantime to make sure were in contact with those places.Rowett arrived at St Andrews in October 2014 with Birmingham having just suffered an 8-0 defeat to Bournemouth and languishing near the foot of the table in 21st place. But a remarkable improvement saw the Blues finish the season in 10th position and the momentum has continued in the current campaign with the manager putting it down to commitment and unity with his players. FL72 Podcast - Rowett, Whitney, Way Rowett said: Its always about that collective hard work and team dynamic and were very big on that. The players have bought in to what were doing with good results and I think the better your results get, the more the players buy into it because they want success. Certainly as a group, weve always tried to maintain that we stand side-by-side and well all try and help each other so thats how I will work as a manager.If Ive got honest players who work hard and they make a mistake, then the only time Ill ever lambaste them iss if they dont try and get on the ball again or they dont try to do the right thing.ddddddddddddYou have to have a relationship with your players these days, but the key is to make sure those relationships dont cloud the tough decisions you have to make to make the club successful because ultimately, thats all Im interested in - seeing how successful we can make Birmingham City. Birmingham travel Wolves in Sundays derby game - live on Sky Sports The Blues make the short trip across the city to play Wolves on Sunday afternoon - live on Sky Sports - and Rowett is hoping the derby incentive will play into their favour. He said: Weve got to go there and use the fact that its a local derby and make sure Wolves dont use the fact its a local derby to inspire them to want to beat us more than we want to beat them. I think its been a difficult job for Kenny Jackett this season. Wolves have had a lot of transition in terms of the club still being up for sale and that little bit of uncertainty at that end and theyve lost some of their best players.I think any manager in that position knows what its like. We lost Demarai Gray so we know how it feels for a club to suddenly have your best attacking weapons taken out of your team so its difficult.With a fight for a place in the Premier League in their sights, Rowett is adamant that the top flight is his target for Birmingham in the future. Rowett sympathies with the Wolves situation after selling key attacking players - just as the Blues did with Demarai Gray Ultimately in the short term, our aim is to certainly challenge very hard to get back into the Premier League, as difficult as that is with the resources we have at the moment, he said.Of course, long term were going to have to be in a different position to challenge to go up and then challenge to stay in the Premier League.But I believe Birmingham City - among many other teams in this division - have the ability to get into the Premier League one day again and stay there.
