The sport of boxing has two internationally recognized boxing halls of fame; the International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) and the World Boxing Hall of Fame (WBHF), with the IBHOF being the more widely recognized boxing hall of fame. Since its inception, the WBHOF has never had a permanent location or museum, which has allowed the more recent IBHOF to garner more publicity and prestige. In 2013, The Boxing Hall of Fame Las Vegas opened in Las Vegas, NV founded by Steve Lott, former assistant manager for Mike Tyson.

Canelo Alvarez's pursuit of history led him two divisions north on Saturday where the sport's biggest global star delivered a spectacular knockout in his light heavyweight debut. Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs) overcame a strong technical performance from WBO champion Sergey Kovalev (34-4-1, 29 KOs) to score a highlight-reel finish in Round 11 with a vicious two-punch combo that left the Russian slugger crumpled into the ropes.

Duncan Robinson scored 23 points, Meyers Leonard added 21 and the Miami Heat led by as many as 41 points on the way to an easy 129-100 win over the Houston Rockets on Sunday night (Monday, Manila time).
It was a record-setting opening quarter for the Heat — resulting in the third-biggest lead after 12 minutes in the NBA's shot-clock era, starting with the 1954-55 season.

Miami led 46-14 after that first quarter. The only bigger leads after one quarter since the shot clock was put into play came when the Los Angeles Lakers led the Sacramento Kings 40-4 after one quarter on Feb. 4, 1987, and the Baltimore Bullets leading the Kansas City-Omaha Kings 45-12 after one quarter on Dec. 9, 1972.

Canelo Alvarez exhibited a whole lot of patience on Saturday night. The Mexican superstar’s WBO light heavyweight title clash with Sergey Kovalev was delayed significantly, as broadcaster DAZN waited for the conclusion of the highly anticipated UFC bout between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz to conclude.

The Houston Rockets underwent a big change over the summer, ending the Chris Paul experiment after two seasons by trading him to the Oklahoma City Thunder for another star point guard: Russell Westbrook. There were a few other additions as well, but for the most part this is the same team that took the Warriors to six games in the second round of the playoffs last season. With the field as wide open as it's been in a long time, they were expected to once again be a contender in the West.

So far, the returns have been disappointing. Through the first two weeks, they're 3-3, but are perhaps lucky to even be staying afloat at .500. Their three wins are by a combined eight points, and have come against some of the worst teams in the league -- the Pelicans, Thunder and Wizards. They have an abysmal defense, are shooting 30.7 percent from 3 and on Sunday were flat-out embarrassed by the Heat, trailing by 41 points before going on to lose by 29.

The earliest evidence of boxing rules date back to Ancient Greece, where boxing was established as an Olympic game in 688 BC. Boxing evolved from 16th- and 18th-century prizefights, largely in Great Britain, to the forerunner of modern boxing in the mid-19th century with the 1867 introduction of the Marquess of Queensberry Rules.

According to head trainer Eddy Reynoso, Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs) was very cautious when he squared off with Sergey Kovalev (34-4-1, 29 KOs) on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Canelo, who owns the WBA middleweight title, moved up by two full weight divisions to challenge Kovalev for the WBO light heavyweight title. Canelo was not taking a lot of risks in the first half of the contest, as Kovalev was jabbing away for most of the fight to keep the challenger at bay.

Kawhi Leonard showed just how much of a difference he can make for the Los Angeles Clippers. Leonard scored 18 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Clippers to a 105-94 victory over the Utah Jazz on Sunday night. Last Wednesday at Utah, the Jazz beat the Clippers by 15 points with Leonard sitting out. The following night, Leonard returned to the lineup and scored 38 points in a win over San Antonio.

With Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, D'Angelo Russell, Kevon Looney and Jacob Evans out due to injuries, coach Steve Kerr has been forced to turn to a young lineup. Eric Paschall, who turned 23 on Monday, is taking full advantage of the opportunity. He's become the Warriors' go-to player. Paschall became the first Warriors rookie to score at least 17 points in a quarter since Reggie Williams scored 18 in 2010.
