Hotel management clarifies SEAG footballers’ kikiam breakfast issue LATEST STORIES TS Kammuri to enter PAR possibly a day after SEA Games opening Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Truth is there’s neither rust nor evident rush, only renewed intensity.One reason behind this could be the fact that Pacquiao will be fighting a younger, talented and very hungry challenger in Adrien Broner, 29, listed as a four-division world champ who has never suffered a stoppage.But if the fight were held tomorrow, Broner would be at a terrible disadvantage. Unlike Pacquiao, he was still terribly over the limit as bared in the latest video from his training camp in Florida.During his last birthday celebration, Pacquiao, 40, declared he has been feeling young and vigorous as 25.He also vowed to show against Broner the unseen best in his arsenal.ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completion Is Luis Manzano planning to propose to Jessy Mendiola? Before taking the evening flight to Los Angeles on Saturday, Manny Pacquiao did a four-mile jog in the morning then sparred for eight rounds later, veteran sports scribe Eddie Alinea reported.In California, his camp said there would be no holiday break for Pacquiao. It will be work, work, work all the way to the Jan. 19 defense of his WBA welterweight crown in Las Vegas.ADVERTISEMENT INQUIRER SPORTS Top 7 Stories of the Year: SMC sweepcenter_img SEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completion MOST READ He did not mention specifics, although there were strict orders during earlier training at the Elorde Gym for guests and media to refrain from recording the proceedings.The order, it would be noted, came at a point when his handlers were working to perfect sharp, snappy blows clearly intended for the opponent’s body.Meanwhile, Broner’s chief handler, Kevin Cunningham, said they plan to jam Pacquiao’s fighting rhythm and zero in on his predictable adjustments.It goes without saying that Pacquiao, with that declaration from the opposing camp, can only be expected to come up with a full-proof weaponry, something like a bag of explosives, killer blasts to the body.These new killer blows could only be expected to flash and dig like phantom daggers, thrown from incredible points and angles.Broner better be ready with iron-clad defense of his body.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player WHAT IS iFOLLOW?Calum Connolly Ipswich TowniFollow is the name of a new streaming service run by the Football League that allows fans outside of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland to watch games live.More than 1,500 games are expected to be broadcast around the world during the 2017-18 season, with only the games shown on television by one of the Football League’s broadcast partners not available to watch in the territory in which that partner is the rights holder.iFollow is also the name of the Football League’s digital platform within the UK and Ireland, which does not feature the live streams but includes highlights and interviews.HOW MUCH DOES iFOLLOW COST?iFollow’s overseas live streaming service costs the equivalent of £110 a season. In the United States, the price for the full campaign is $140.You can also purchase single games for the equivalent of £5 each, which is $7 in the USA.Within the UK and Ireland, iFollow without the live streaming costs £45 a season.HOW DO I ACCESS iFOLLOW?Barrie McKay Nottingham ForestYou can access iFollow by visiting the official website of the Football League club you want to watch. There is no central iFollow website.As the 2017-18 season is now well underway, season passes are no longer being sold but match passes can be purchased on a week-to-week basis.WHY ISN’T iFOLLOW IN THE UK & IRELAND?iFollow’s live streaming service is not in the UK due to broadcast restrictions.In England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, no matches can be broadcast live between 14:45 and 17:15 due to the blackout originally imposed in the 1960s to encourage fans to attend matches.As most Football League games take place at 15:00 on Saturday, iFollow would not be workable – and the Football League may have feared that such a service might negatively impact attendances.It is not as clear why iFollow is unavailable in the Republic of Ireland, as there is no such blackout there.WHY ISN’T MY CLUB SIGNED UP TO iFOLLOW?Norwich CityA small number of clubs have not signed up to the iFollow platform.They are: Accrington Stanley, Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Bristol City, Charlton Athletic, Derby County, Fulham, Hull City, Forest Green Rovers, Middlesbrough, QPR, Sunderland and Wolves.Aston Villa, Birmingham, Bristol City, Derby, Fulham, QPR and Wolves, however, offer exactly the same service through their own platform.Accrington, Charlton, Hull, Forest Green, Middlesbrough and Sunderland have opted out entirely.IS THERE AN iFOLLOW APP?As is the case on desktop, there is no central iFollow mobile site or app.The service can be accessed, however, by downloading your club’s official app to a smartphone or tablet.You will then be able to sign in to your iFollow account and access games when they are broadcast.last_img read more
