It was five weeks ago when Cletus Seldin made his HBO boxing debut. He planned on celebrating his sensational knockout by flying to Florida to attend a wedding and then embark on a week-long vacation. Seldin was two days into the trip when his plans changed. HBO wanted him back in the ring and on their network on Dec. 16. Seldin didn’t even pause to think about it.
On paper, promoter Bob Arum put together a fight that very well could have been one for the ages. Never before had a pair of two-time Olympic gold medalists met inside a professional ring. Vasily Lomachenko and Guillermo Rigondeaux are two of the most technically astute fighters in the game. When Arum made the fight, the boxing world paid attention. But, as often happens in sports, once the bell rang, reality set in. That piece of paper? It was shredded by Lomachenko.
Miguel Cotto, the four-division champion from Caguas, Puerto Rico, has essentially become the house fighter at Madison Square Garden. Over the course of his 46-fight career, he has fought at the Garden nine times and won eight. That doesn’t sit so well with the kid from Brooklyn, Sadam Ali, who fights Cotto at the Garden on Saturday night. The building is usually close to capacity when Cotto fights, and Ali admits that over the years, he has been among those in attendance.
The @NHL & @NHLBruins will honor hockey pioneer Willie O’Ree tonight, Jan. 17, the Bruins host the Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden. Tonight’s game will feature a ceremonial puck drop with O’Ree, who became the first black player to compete in an NHL game on Jan. 18, 1958.
With the @NYRangers win over Flyers ... @HLundqvist30 became the first goaltender in League history to reach the 20-win mark in 13 straight seasons at any point in his NHL career and the sixth to record at least 20 victories in 13 or more campaigns overall.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
