Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora ready for another explosive encounter — The potential for mayhem at the ExCeL Arena in London on Saturday night is considerable, which probably explains why it will be filled to capacity with 20,000 boxing fans looking for a little more entertainment than was on view in Liverpool last Saturday.

Jimmy Tibbs: ‘It’s not been an easy road. The Lord’s kept me in boxing’ — Although he talks now with the gentleness of a vicar, Jimmy Tibbs is not a man to mess with. But he knows someone harder to beat than even he was in his prime. "I was brought up as a Roman Catholic," he says, his deeply-lined, 67-year-old face a map of his own history, as well as that of his sport.

Will International Premier Tennis League be a game changer or a flop? — Tennis is at an intriguing point in its development. The left-field experiments being tried at the end of another draining season will either augment the established, imperfect model that has none the less served the game well enough for decades, or collapse in acrimony.

Andy Murray’s split with coaching team the result of a poor year — Andy Murray's split with Dani Vallverdu after five years together is, on the face of it, a curious one.

Soft centre of Muhammad Ali, the love-bomb, at heart of touching film — "What's your daddy's name?" says the husky voice on the other end of the phone. "Muhammad Ali!" comes the little-girl response, but in the tone and lilt of a ring announcer, as if part of a never-ending show.

Top-down causation and the emergence of agency — There is a paradox at the heart of modern neuroscience. As we succeed in explaining more and more cognitive operations in terms of patterns of electrical activity of specific neural circuits, it seems we move ever farther from bridging the gap between the physical and the mental.

Andy Murray splits with long-time allies Dani Vallverdu and Jez Green — Andy Murray has split with his long-time training partner and friend Dani Vallverdu. Jez Green, who has looked after the player's fitness programme for seven years, has also gone. "We sat down at the end of the season and decided that a change would be best for all of us," Murray said on Wednesday.

French tennis official receives life ban for gambling and match-fixing — An obscure 22-year-old French tennis player and official, Morgan Lamri, has been banned for life for gambling and match-fixing. Lamri, unranked as a junior or Tour professional, played a handful of minor matches on the Futures circuit, the last recorded of them when he double-bagled as a wildcard entrant in a qualifier in Morocco two years ago.

Tears of joy from Roger Federer as Switzerland win Davis Cup — More tears, then, for the Swiss but tears of joy this time, not recrimination - for Roger Federer, his proud and tiny country, as well as tennis - on a historic afternoon in a sealed-off arena at one end of a football stadium in the lowlands of northern France.

Federer and Wawrinka give Switzerland Davis Cup final lead over France — Severin Lüthi does not appear to be one of life's intuitive gamblers, and perhaps he risked no more than passing embarrassment in throwing a recovering Roger Federer into the doubles alongside Stanislas Wawrinka here on Saturday.
