Floyd Mayweather says delays just made fight with Manny Pacquiao bigger — Floyd Mayweather says he has "no regrets" about keeping millions of boxing fans waiting several years to see him share a ring with Manny Pacquiao - even though both champions are entering the autumn of their careers.

Hagler v Hearns, 30 years on: three rounds that shook the boxing world — Anniversaries in boxing are beguiling entities. It was always better back then, wasn't it? Well, as millions of the committed and curious wait for Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao to provide at least fleeting evidence to the contrary in Las Vegas on 2 May, the calendar clicks on to mark the passing on Wednesday of 30 years since a night in that town when the sport held its breath for seven minutes and 52 seconds of glorious combat.

Ricky Hatton: Forget Pacquiao, Amir Khan can beat Floyd Mayweather — Ricky Hatton, with the sort of comic timing that punctuates his best stand-up routines, has singled out Amir Khan as one of few fighters capable of beating Floyd Mayweather, who might yet grant the Bolton boxer an audience if he gets past Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas on 2 May.

Bob Brett’s position as LTA’s performance director under scrutiny — Bob Brett - the Australian coach who guided Boris Becker to the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open titles - might not be the man to revive British tennis after all, it seems. A board meeting of the Lawn Tennis Association next month will hear what Brett's mentor, the chief executive Michael Downey, has to say about his efforts over the past year, having brought him to London as performance director from the relative comfort of his San Remo Academy.

Amir Khan left high and dry again in boxing’s latest merry-go-round — The only justice guaranteed in boxing is the rough kind earned with gloves. Ask Amir Khan, who has taken more wrong turns in his career than Mr Magoo.

Kell Brook more focused following two life-changing experiences — Kell Brook has the swagger of a champion about him - but he always did, even when he was in serious danger of letting his exceptional talent blow away like a used hamburger wrapper.

Cricket: The big interview — The words trip eloquently off those famous pursed lips: 'Yes, I would say England have their best chance in years of beating Australia next summer.' Few broadcasters have brought as much wide-ranging perspective and authority to their opinions as has Richie Benaud. He has played in or worked at more than 500 Test matches.

NFL dream snapping back into picture: Jorgen Hus looks to 'lock it in' with Chiefs — Saskatoon's Jorgen Hus isn't seeking immortality or even fame while he prepares slavishly for his third NFL camp. Hus, a long-snapper, fires footballs between his legs in relative anonymity. What he really wants is a steady paycheque at a job he adores, even if the wider world doesn't necessarily remember his name from week to week.

Carl Frampton rejects £1.5m fight with Scott Quigg over promotional rights — No sooner had Eddie Hearn offered Carl Frampton £1.5m to defend his IBF world super-bantamweight title against Carl Quigg in Manchester on 18 July, than the Belfast boxer had rejected it. Quigg, who holds the WBA version of the title and fights for Hearn's Matchroom on Sky, sounds desperate to get Frampton into the ring after a long layoff through injury.

Will Amir Khan’s reluctance hand forgotten man Frankie Gavin a shot at Kell Brook? — The odds of Frankie Gavin stepping in where Amir Khan is reluctant to tread - challenging Kell Brook for his IBF world welterweight title at the O2 Arena in London on 30 May - are shortening by the hour.
