I trained hard and I am disciplined.“I take all this responsibility seriously and I am going to give them a great fight.” Signature move Alvarez, who was the more stonefaced of the two, sent the crowd into a frenzy as he shadowboxed briefly at the front of the stage — his new signature weigh-in move.Hundreds of people stood on line for hours outside the Grand Garden for the chance to see the weigh-in, chanting and signing along with a neatly-attired Mariachi band.For many, it represented their only hope of seeing either fighter in the flesh as the bout has been sold out for weeks.Las Vegas construction worker Harvey Hernandez attended the weigh-in with his friend Roger Ramirez and said Alvarez has a better boxing style.“I am picking Canelo,” the 26-year-old said. “He is better than Triple G.

TNT, Ginebra out to break semis tie

first_imgSealing all possible gaps in the lane, the KaTropa leveled the semifinal showdown by humbling the Gin Kings, 103-96, on a road trip in Batangas City last Wednesday.Greg Slaughter and Japeth Aguilar, Ginebra’s twin wrecking balls in the paint, couldn’t split the space down low efficiently, allowing TNT’s defenders to clamp down on them easily.Even Justin Brownlee, who finished with a game-high 25 points, was smothered by TNT’s choking internal defense in the closing minutes when the Kings attempted to cut down a double-digit advantage.“I think in every position, we are outsized by Ginebra. When they play with a big lineup, it’s really hard to play them,” said Racela.Tony Semarad did an exceptional job on limiting Brownlee’s mobility inside while Kelly Williams and Moala Tautuaa had seven-footer Slaughter and the 6-foot-9 Aguilar in check.ADVERTISEMENT Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed “No idea,” said Nash. “I know coach Tim (Cone) will do something.

But it takes a lot of focus and a lot of effort to do that,” said Nash. While containing these giants plays a critical role in scoring a win, TNT must also let quintessential playmaker Jayson Castro provide the leadership and make sure Glen Rice Jr. stays out of early foul trouble this time.“We have to stick to our rebounding and defensive game plan,” said Castro in Filipino. “We don’t want to get outhustled just like in Game 1. We should again come out with a lot energy.”Slowed down by leg cramps late in the final period, Castro tallied 20 points and 10 assists in his crucial matchup with Ginebra’s LA Tenorio.
