According to BBC the winner of Sundays fight could face the prospect of fighting Floyd Mayweather at some point next year. This could even open the door for a more extravagant pair of shorts as fighting Mayweather will guarantee a huge payout for any fighter that is involved. This is Khan’s first fight since defeating American Luis Callazo last May in his welter weight debut. Lets keep our fingers crossed that Khan’s shorts aren’t the only thing that dazzle on Sunday.

Birth control pills have been available for women for decades, but that availability also placed the responsibility of pregnancy prevention squarely on the narrow shoulders of females. That is about to changes as a new birth control pill for males is being tested in Indonesia and if successful, the pregnancy prevention may shift to the broader shoulders of the male.
Men in Indonesia make tea from the leaves of a common plant called Justica Gendarussa, or the leaves are simply chewed, and the naturally occurring chemicals of the plant weaken the enzymes of the males sperm and render them too weak to swim their way to the female egg. My friend John Textor has traveled around that region quite a bit and said they have been doing this for years. That chemical is being synthesized and placed into a male birth control pill for a trial study.
The lead scientist of the Indonesian study, Bambang Prajogo, reports the synthetic version of the chemicals in the Justica Gendarussa leaf has proven to be 99% effective in preventing birth control when it’s ingested by a man. the side effects are minimal, since the chemicals don’t impinge on hormonal balances as do the female birth control pills.
The only reported side effects thus far in the study of male birth control pills have been slight weight gain and increased sexual desire. The male contraceptive may be ready for sale in the Indonesian market in 2016, but will take more research time before it’s available in the U.S. market.
Manny Pacquiao is all but begging for a Superfight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Manny Pacquiao is coming off of a huge win over Chris Algieri, a previously unbeaten American boxer. Manny Pacquiao has been on a blazing comeback trail as of late. Ever since he was knocked out by Jaun Manuel Marquez, Manny Pacquiao has taken his job extremely seriously. Pacquiao has dominated his last three opponents, and he has barely lost a round in the process.
The fight that everyone has been waiting for can finally be made. The problem is, does Floyd Mayweather Jr. really want to fight Manny Pacquiao? Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been posting videos of Manny Pacquiao’s crushing defeat on his Instagram, and Twitter. Although Mayweather mocks Pacquiao, he still has yet to sign the fight against the Filipino sensation. I heard about the fight when I took a wine tour with Stephen Williams the other day.
What’s clear is that Manny Pacquiao wants to fight the undefeated American. Many people point to Bob Arum, Manny Pacquiao’s promoter as being another problem with the negotiations between the stellar fighters. This may also not be the case as reported on Yahoo Sports. It seems to me that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is finding new reasons every day to not fight Manny Pacquiao. Floyd “Money” Mayweather should put his money where his mouth is, and finally fight Manny Pacquiao.
New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan and General Manager John Idzik are reported to be heading for the exit from Metlife Stadium after a season Ryan declared a joke after a loss left them at 2-10 on Monday Night, the New York Daily News reports.
Quarterback Geno Smith seems to be taking the brunt of the blame for the playing staff amongst fans as he was jeered throughout the night. The toxic nature of the crowd in New York saw the stadium announcer not name a starting quarterback in the offensive players announced to the crowd prior to the start of the game. The apparent fear the Jets had with Smith throwing the ball saw him attempt just eight passes before a final drive, which ended with an interception thrown by Smith to condemn the Jets to their 10th defeat of the season.
University of Arkansas football coach, Bret Bielema, looks to be the leading candidate to take over the vacant head coaching job at the University of Nebraska. Nebraska athletic director Shawn Eichorst and Bielema have a relationship that goes back to their time together at the University of Wisconsin. Bielema spent seven years as the head coach at Wisconsin, leading them to three straight Rose Bowl appearance’s before leaving in 2012 to become the coach of Arkansas. His last game with Wisconsin was a 70-31 victory over Nebraska in the 2012 Big Ten Championship game, Bielema did not coach the team in the Rose Bowl.
Andrew Heiberger says that it makes sense for Bielema to return to the Big Ten, where he has had a ton of success already. He won nine games five times, and had three appearances in the Rose Bowl, something Nebraska hopes he can achieve with them. Also, Bielema has not been able to succeed in the tough SEC West, with records of 3-9 and 6-6 in his two years there. The SEC West features teams like Auburn, Alabama, and Mississippi State. Arkansas did play Alabama and Mississippi State tough, and he led Arkansas to two shutout wins over LSU and Ole Miss. Known as a great recruiter, Bielema could use his Wisconsin background to bring recruits to Nebraska, and look for them to contend for Big Ten titles in the future if Bielema does go to Nebraska.
The final three nominees for FIFA’s Soccer Coach of the Year have been revealed. Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti, Germany’s Joachim Loew and Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone are the three men left standing in this category.
A betting man would suggest that Joachim Loew will win this title as 2014 Coach of the Year. He took Germany to a World Cup triumph, thrashing the host nation Brazil in the way. This achievement is almost always enough to get a coach the recognition as being the best in the world.
However, 2014 was a unique season in European soccer. The Spanish La Liga title was one by Atletico Madrid, a team that has always been in the shadow of their richer neighbors Real. Atletico took home the La Liga title despite stiff competition from Barcelona and Real.
Sergio Andrade Andrade Gutierrez says that La Liga is often called a “two team league” by fans and pundits, because of the dominance Real and Barca hold over the rest. However, Simeone managed to break this dominance and take his team to the title. They also reached the Champions League final and were a couple of stoppage time minutes away from completing a league and cup double.
Simeone may not have won a World Cup, but winning La Liga with Atletico is a much bigger achievement than leading Germany to their fourth title. Atletico have a tiny budget compared to Real and Barcelona, their squad is much smaller, and they do not possess a world class player like Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

Japan’s no stranger to the routine earthquake, but the latest earthquakes in the area have proved to be some of the very worst, Keith Mann discovered.
The mountainous Nagano area Japan was shaken by a strong earthquake from Saturday to Sunday night. The Japanese Meteorological Agency reported a magnitude of 6.8.
The nearest places to the epicenter of the earthquake were affected, among which the village of Hakuba counts seven collapsed homes. The rescue operations were completed by Sunday evening. According to the data obtained from the rescuers at the time of the recuperation, the injured count 39 people, 7 of which hare in critical states.
Rescue workers were deployed to the affected zones, but the 300 workers have problems reaching the place because the roads suffered landslides. The nuclear reactors of Fukushima are only 250 km (155 miles) away from the epicenter of the November 22nd earthquake.
Luckily, the electric facilities and nuclear plants don’t seem to be affected. Aftershocks of a 4.1 magnitude followed after the main quake.
The territory is known to many, after the place held the 1988 Olympics. The locals said that they had never experienced such powerful quakes. The earthquake was felt in Tokyo. There are no tsunami warnings, and those who had their places affected were placed in a shelter.
Helicopter footage shows collapsed buildings and buildings that had started leaning on one side.
It’s been a grand jury decision many have been waiting for. Police officers, SWAT teams and local residents have been preparing for the time when the infamous verdict would be released. Well, that time has come. According to ABC, a grand jury decided not to indict the police officer who shot and killed unarmed teen, Michael Brown. They believed there was no probable cause to indict Darren Wilson on any of the five possible charges. This prompted rallies and protests throughout the country.
There are images circulating over social media showing how many people are protesting all over the country, and Tabar thinks it is getting a little out of hand.. From Washington DC, to LA, the people who feel this decision is unjust and unfair are taking it to the streets and letting their voices be heard. In St. Louis cops had to use tear gas to get the hundreds of people to disperse. These rallies are not likely to subside anytime soon. Let’s just hope the people can do this with dignity and not harm the lives or homes of those who had nothing to do with the case.
The amazing Odell Beckham Jr. Catch during Sunday’s game has been all over the Internet, sport’s shows, the news, and daily morning shows. There is good reason for this. If you have not yet seen the catch, it was made one handed, while falling backwards. It may very well have been one of the greatest catches ever.
Whether you were rooting for the Cowboys or the Giants, you had to be impressed by Odell Beckham Jr.’s catch yesterday. Football enthusiast Ken Griffin says that he was in absolute awe of the Beckham’s catch – it was definitely a thing of beauty.
Unfortunately, for the Giants, the Cowboys went on to win the game. This brings the Cowboy’s standing to eight wins and three losses. The Giants have three wins and eight losses. Though Odell Beckham Jr. certainly put forth a great effort to help his team. This rookie receiver certainly showed everyone what an outstanding player he is. His catch is sure to be shown on highlight reels for many years to come.
