Andy Murray avoids politics before Great Britain’s Davis Cup tie with USA — Picking his words more adroitly than he selected his shots in an error-strewn nightmare against the Croatian teenager Borna Coric in Dubai, Andy Murray tiptoed around nationalism, football politics and the state of Scottish tennis on the eve of Great Britain's Davis Cup tie against the USA in Glasgow.

Scott Quigg wants ‘biggest fight in British boxing’ against Carl Frampton — After years of stumbling at countless hurdles, Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg look to be in the home stretch in negotiating what would probably be the biggest British fight of the year. The likelihood of their putting their world super-bantamweight titles on the line against each other this summer is stronger than at any time during discussions over the past couple of years.

Carl Frampton overwhelms Chris Avalos to retain IBF super-bantamweight title — Kevin Mitchell Odyssey Arena The stormy gale rifling through Belfast outside was as a zephyr compared with the whirlwind Carl Frampton delivered to his challenger, Chris Avalos, at the Odyssey Arena night. The 28-year-old kept his IBF super-bantamweight title, as expected, and did the job inside five rounds that had the packed house enthralled until the merciful stoppage.

Carl Frampton gives Chris Avalos a dressing down before tantalising test — The Hitman was not happy with The Jackal - although it is tough to look convincing when you're standing butt naked behind a towel in front of the other guy's jeering supporters - especially in Belfast. As hospitable a city as it is, its hardier citizens are not inclined to let such a moment go unremarked.

Borna Coric could be the next Novak Djokovic - just ask Andy Murray — When Borna Coric, Andy Murray's teenage nightmare, steps on to Centre Court in Dubai on Friday to face Roger Federer, there will be one certainty: the 18-year-old Croatian will play without fear or reverence. He is the genuine article, no question.

Davis Cup double act of Andy and Jamie Murray marks emotional Glasgow return — The last time Andy and Jamie Murray played doubles together for Great Britain in Glasgow, four years ago, it culminated in one of those lachrymose moments that have come to characterise the achievements the younger sibling values the most. As he burst into tears and hugged Jamie, we wondered why.

Floyd Mayweather is a great but some way off being the greatest ever — We will be reminded regularly between now and 2 May that Floyd Mayweather is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, the most gifted practitioner of the fighting arts since Sugar Ray Leonard. There are good arguments for such a judgment.

Tyson Fury closes in on title fight with Wladimir Klitschko or Deontay Wilder — Frank Warren has returned from talks with HBO and Showtime executives in New York convinced he is "very, very close" to agreeing a deal for Tyson Fury to challenge either Wladimir Klitschko or Deontay Wilder in the UK this summer for a version of the world heavyweight title.

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao clash has been five years in the making — Apart from the result, two things will be remembered most about the first and possibly last fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao -confirmed at last on Friday for 2 May at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

Martin Murray’s only hope of beating Gennady Golovkin is with a bazooka — Martin Murray's third world title opportunity, for a rumoured £1m in Monte Carlo on Saturday night against the magnificent Gennady Golovkin, is boxing's version of a one-way ticket to Mars: exciting but doomed.
