Recent Buzzes

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while and I have been very busy these past few days. But know that I am still around to dish out the latest news in sports. Congratulations by the way to Barack Obama for becoming the United State’s 44th President and to his supporters. I hope his term will bring prosperity to the world and promote to WORLD PEACE.

I miss a lot of sporting events lately. To recap, here are is the list of what has happened in the past week or so:

Nonito Donaire successfully defended his IBF Flyweight title against mandatory challenger Moruti Mthalane of South Africa via TKO at the 6th round. The Stop came when the referee halted the fight and have the South African’s cut on his eye checked by the ringside physician. The doctor called off the fight due to sustained cut inside the the eyelid of Mthlane. The win raises Donaire’s record of 20 wins, 1 loss with 13 knockouts.

Three ballers for one. That means former Pistons Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess, and Cheik Samb are on their way to don the Denver Nuggets uniform in a trade for Allen Iverson. Pistons President and NBA legend Joe Dumars pushed to acquire AI in this mega trade, saying the sole reason was winning. Ai hopes to cap his career with a championship, saying that he has everything except a championship title.

Ex-NBA star guard Kevin Johnson is now Sacramento first African-American mayor. Johnson, who have played for the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Phoenix Suns, made history to become the city’s first black mayor, despite being a novice to politics and facing opposition against incumbent Heather Fargo. Johnson campaigned a theme of change, and has recruited the help of fellow NBA stars Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley, and Magic Johnson for his run. A teary-eyed Fargo, who served the city for two decade, conceded and congratulated Johnson for his win.
