George Groves vs. Denis Douglin: Winner, Scorecard and Analysis

“Saint” George Groves (21-2, 16 KOs) successfully defended his WBC silver super middleweight title against Denis “Momma’s Boy” Douglin (17-4, 10 KOs) on Saturday, beating the American challenger via seventh-round knockout in Liverpool, England.    

Douglin gave the heavily favoured Groves a surprising challenge in the opening rounds before slowing down significantly, and the defending champion finally looked like himself in the seventh, dropping Douglin with a combination of right hooks before ending the fight with the left.   

Groves was expected to look sharp from the opening bell but came out a little sluggish in the first, as both he and Douglin combined for a slower start to the fight than the previous bouts on the undercard.

ByTheMin Boxing also noticed:

The American was fighting at a heavier weight than at any stage of his career, and the difference in size was very visible. Douglin refused to let it dictate the fight, however, surprising the Liverpool crowd by going toe-to-toe with the defending champion.

Groves took too many chances and kept getting caught with hooks to the body, although he countered with an excellent combination that looked like it won him the second.

Momma’s Boy showed no signs of slowing down in the third, twice stunning Groves with clean, sharp combinations high. The Times‘ Tony Barrett was surprised:

As shared by Sky Sports, he also opened up a cut on the bridge of Groves’ nose:

A big shot at the end of the third looked like it almost dropped the champion, but it also seemed to wake him up, as he came out with far more intensity in the fourth. Suddenly, Groves was moving around the ring and the big right hand was landing significant shots.

Douglin had looked fresh and mobile in the first three rounds but two hard punches rattled the American, who couldn’t find any answers in the fourth.

ByTheMin Boxing approved of the new tactics:

Douglin bounced back in the fifth, however, as the cut on Groves’ nose started to look bad. Another flurry of punches likely won the underdog the round, but he was also visibly gasping for breath on his way back to the corner.

He started slowing down in the seventh, and Groves’ experience showed, as the defending champion slowly started to pull away. Ring TV’s Douglass Fischer knew Douglin couldn’t let up:

A strong combination with the right hand finally wobbled Douglin, who went down with a minute left in the round. He barely beat the count before staggering to his feet, and Groves charged forward again, locking him into the corner with a big left hook.

The referee had seen enough, stopping the fight before the 26-year-old could do any more damage.

Groves may have gotten the stoppage win, but fans and pundits were anything but convinced. Fischer even believes he hurt his stock on Saturday:

The defending champion struggled for much of the fight, displaying poor accuracy in his punches and not displaying any movement in the ring. While Douglin proved he can put together a solid performance at the middleweight level, Groves gave the American far too many chances to take the fight to him.

With James DeGale impressing greatly against Marco Antonio Periban on Saturday, it seems almost a foregone conclusion who would win a single eliminator for the right to fight Carl Froch, via Laceup Boxing:

A battle between Groves and DeGale seems almost inevitable at this point, but judging by both fighters’ recent performances, the latter would have to be the strong favourite to avenge his 2011 loss.

 

11/22: CBS2 Saturday Evening Weather Headlines

By Mark McIntyre Jr, CBS2 Meteorologist/Weather Producer

Good evening all!

The chill was with us today but thankfully the winds were not, so it didn’t feel all too bad today! A weak disturbance passing through will touch off a few showers mainly north of NYC. Since it will be right near the freezing mark in the northernmost suburbs, some of that rain could become ice on contact with the ground…no need to grab ice skates, just be careful in the early morning hours well north & west.

Sunday will feature more in the way of clouds by late in the day, but it will also be warmer. Temps will max out in the mid-50s, which will be a couple of degrees above the norm.

The next solid rain chance arrives tomorrow night/Monday morning with a period of steady rain– possibly heavy at times. Monday morning drive time looks like a mess to put it nicely; bring the rain gear heading to work or school. One good thing about Monday is the temps: well into the 60s, with a few spots touching 70! If only it wasn’t going to rain it would be a great day to play hooky!

Temps back off into upper 50s on Tuesday with mainly sunny skies. Then we watch a potential storm for Wednesday which may bring some chilly rain.

Be sure to check back later for that and also our Thanksgiving forecast!

​Law & Order Actress Michelle Hurd Says Bill Cosby Inappropriately Touched Her While She Was A Stand-In On The Cosby Show!

Wow! It seems like there are new victims coming forward daily!

Bill Cosby has been surrounded by reports that he raped and sexually molested a number of women that is growing by the day.

And Law & Order‘s Michelle Hurd makes number 18.

[ Related: New Woman Claims Bill Cosby Gave Her Quaaludes & She Woke Up Naked With His Friend! ]

The notoriously private actress recently recounted the time that she was a stand-in on The Cosby Show, and Bill tried to get her alone in his house after inappropriately touching her. She wrote on her Facebook:

“LOOK, I wasn’t going to say anything, but I can’t believe some of the things i’ve been reading, SO here is MY personal experience:

I did stand-in work on The Cosby show back in the day and YES, Bill Cosby was VERY inappropriate with me. It started innocently, lunch in his dressing room, daily, then onto weird acting exercises were he would move his hands up and down my body, (can’t believe I fell for that) I was instructed to NEVER tell anyone what we did together, (he said other actors would become jealous) and then fortunately, I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened. At that point my own red flags went off and I told him,

“No, I’ll just come to work tomorrow with my hair straightened”.

I then started to take notice and found another actress, a stand-in as well, and we started talking….. A LOT …. turns out he was doing the same thing to her, almost by the numbers, BUT, she did go to his house and because I will not name her, and it is her story to tell, all I’ll say is she awoke, after being drugged, vomited, and then Cosby told her there’s a cab waiting for you outside.

I have ABSOLUTELY no reason to lie or make up this up!

Anyone that knows me, knows that!

Now you have a first hand account of my experience with Mr. Cosby.”

Disgusting!

And again, all of these incidents are alleged, but why would so many women come forward with similar stories if they weren’t true?!

We’re so thankful Michelle dodged what could have been a life changing bullet, and has been brave enough to come forward.

Beloved Father Is Given A Terrific & Hilarious Obituary By His Adoring Family!

This was no ordinary obituary! It was an extraordinary one!

Charles “Charlie” Clark Wheeler, 60, of Weare, kicked the bucket, bought the farm, and ate his last pretzel on November 16, 2014.”

That’s how the obituary for Charlie Wheeler began – a surprising and funny way to start in a forum usually reserved for somber tones and seriousness!

But Charlie’s family, in Weare, New Hampshire, say that the beloved patriarch was a person who was very generous with his hilarious sense of humor, and they’re pretty sure he would’ve appreciated their funny gesture!

Here’s what Charlie’s wife Annie Pleatsika said:

“We did it because we thought it was so appropriate to do something funny and humorous and to paint a picture of him. He had a beautiful smile. He was just hilarious.”

The obituary has since touched scores of people from their town, and since going viral, has touched people all around the country.

Here’s what his daughter Meredith Wheeler said:

“People say they were laughing, crying, laughing and then crying more. I think that’s a better way to read an obit than crying the whole time.”

We definitely agree that laughing is just as necessary as crying when someone dies. Both help a person heal!

Another part of the obituary proves that Charlie’s wonderful qualities have most likely passed down to his own family. It read:

“Raised and educated in Manchester, he was a graduate of Memorial High School, Class of 1972, and a graduate of Manchester Community College; HVAC, second in his class (he always reminded anyone of that)…Charlie lived life in his own way.”

Well, his family is doing obituaries their own way, and their way is pretty hilariously grand!

Report: Will states start to prevent you from registering cars that have pending recalls?

Filed under: , , , ,

Air Bag Recall

The impact of 2014 – henceforth known as Year of the Recalls – will have long-ranging consequences on the auto industry. One of the biggest changes, though, might not be in the way manufacturers inform the government of pending recalls or in the way Uncle Sam punishes automakers that violate its rules, but in the ability to sell cars with pending recalls. And strangely enough, the charge is being led by an automaker.

Honda Executive Vice President Rick Schostek, pictured above, argued during a meeting of the Senate Transportation Committee that the government needs to take a role in mandating that consumers have recall services performed. That could include withholding registration for vehicles with pending recalls, Bloomberg reports. Honda is just one of the automakers currently embroiled in the massive Takata airbag recall.

“It’s a good idea,” safety advocate Clarence Ditlow said, according to Bloomberg. “California won’t give you a registration if you have an emissions recall. Why not a safety recall?”

“Honda is going to use any innovative tools to find customers and get these recalls done,” Schostek told the Transportation Committee. The exec, aside from echoing Ditlow’s viewpoint, also argued for requiring dealerships and garages to inform vehicle owners of incomplete recalls, regardless of the service provided. Schostek also made an argument that state governments could step in, as well.

Whatever ends up happening, it’s fair to say that between Takata and General Motors, the future of recalls for American consumers are set for significant changes.
