Heavyweight boxing enters its pantomime season, and no one’s laughing — On the cusp of the pantomime season boxing is again a laughing stock, like a tottering, rouge-cheeked dame with a glass of sherry in one hand and a string of broken promises in the other. Disillusion drowns out the laughter.

Football Huskies can clinch this weekend — Two weeks remain in the Canada West football regular season, and every one of the league's six teams still have a crack at a playoff spot. Some, of course, are more likely than others. The University of Saskatchewan Huskies, who are 3-3 heading into Saturday's road game against the Calgary Dinos, find themselves in the...

She packs a punch: Nelson back in the ring after cancer fight — Saskatoon's Michelle Nelson was in her comfortable place Wednesday night. There was a ring, her pink gloves, fellow boxers working up a sweat. They fine-tuned their bodies and their punches. Nelson, 38, was in the thick of it. She's got a fight Saturday.

Huskies erase skid with thrashing of UBC — The University of Saskatchewan Huskies scattered the remnants of their three-game losing streak into a wet and windy night at Griffiths Stadium. Saskatchewan's 40-10 Friday-night thrashing of the Vanier Cup-champion British Columbia Thunderbirds snapped that aforementioned skid, ran their record ...

Playoff scenarios loom large as Huskies, T-birds clash — It seems awfully early to be talking about the collapse of a season - early, that is, if you're the University of Saskatchewan Huskies football team, who have made the playoffs each of the last 15 years. But that's life at Griffiths Stadium in 2016, as the Huskies - who last missed the post-season in...

Maria Sharapova’s reduced ban good news for her bank balance — Maria Sharapova can resume playing on 26 April next year, a month before the French Open and a week before her 30th birthday. The judgment that her doping ban had been reduced did not come as a surprise, although it might not meet with the universal applause the player imagines.

Tyson Fury is having a laugh - a sad and lonely one — To believe Tyson Fury's assertion this week that he has retired from boxing - only for him to recant within three hours - is to enter the fighter's disturbed world of mocking disregard for public opinion. In this constantly changing landscape, every critic is a conspirator, every sycophant a friend and every lie is a truth.

Mitchell: New Mosaic Stadium is a place of many splendours — REGINA - Two pigeons peered from a tiny concrete hideaway Saturday afternoon. It looked like they'd been in that elevated recess quite a while, settling into their own cranny of new Mosaic Stadium, a place to call home. The Saskatchewan Roughriders, like those pigeons, will enjoy the place very much.

Football Huskies head into bye week with third straight loss — REGINA - Suddenly, a playoff spot is no sure thing for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, thanks in part to a botched final drive Saturday at new Mosaic Stadium. The Huskies - who won their first two games of the 2016 football season - have now lost three straight, including a 37-29 Saturday setback to...

To be honest, for all his great deeds (and he was v good), Wlad is coming across as a bit yesterday, a businessman…

As it stands, Wlad, who doesn't have a title and who lost his last fight nearly a year ago, is telling everyone what to do. Should blank him

It's aways been their schtick. Remember how they dicked Chisora about, then Haye? All in the game, I guess, but tiresome

RT @stevelillis: @kevinmitchell50 Exactly. I said the other day the decision will be made when Wlad decides.
