Seoul : More than 2,000 South Korean soccer fans will sue a sports agency after superstar Cristiano Ronaldo stayed on the bench when his Juventus side played a friendly in Seoul last week, a law firm said Monday. The star Portuguese striker did not play a single second of the match against a K-league all-star team, ignoring appeals from the sell-out 65,000 crowd at the World Cup Stadium to lace up his boots.With frustration mounting some even chanted the name of his great Argentine rival Lionel Messi. When the game was first announced, organisers said the contract with Juventus obliged Ronaldo to play for at least 45 minutes, prompting many fans to splash out, according to Seoul law firm Myungan.Tickets — priced from 30,000 won (US$25) to 400,000 won ($338) — sold out in just two and a half hours when they were released on July 3.”So far, more than 2,000 fans have contacted us to pursue the suit,” Myungan attorney Kim Hun-ki told AFP.”We plan to officially file the suit on their behalf sometime next week, if the agency does not offer a concrete plan to compensate the ticket holders before then.”The Italian team’s flight from Nanjing in China was delayed, so that they landed only five hours before the scheduled start, delaying kick-off by an hour.Robin Zhang, CEO of The Festa, the Korean agency which arranged the game, told local broadcaster SBS in tears that she had complained to Juventus vice chairman Pavel Nedved during the match.He responded: “‘I also hope Ronaldo plays. But he says he doesn’t want to. I’m sorry there’s nothing I can do’,” she told SBS, adding that she will find “ways to compensate” ticket holders.Ronaldo has been subjected to a backlash on social media. “He betrayed the 60,000 audience and belittled us,” a Korean who attended the game posted on Instagram.”I’m no longer a Ronaldo fan.”

Floyd Mayweather got a test this morning, as Marcos Maidana bull-rushed his way into a competitive fight, but in the end, Mayweather made the adjustments, took over, and came out the winner via majority decision. Official scores were 114-114, 116-112, and 117-111 for Mayweather. BLH had it 115-113 for Mayweather.Mayweather (46-0, 26 KO) was in some trouble early in the fight, as he was mentally and physically pushed by Maidana (35-4, 31 KO), who pushed Mayweather to the ropes and looked to unload with big shots.Much of Maidana’s night was spent looking to land his big overhand right, which he chopped in a few times, but never landed the big shot that he really needed. Maidana did a good work to the body, and was able to rough Mayweather up and seemingly get into his head in the first five or six rounds. But the second half of the fight belonged to Floyd.As Maidana couldn’t keep up the otherworldly pace he had in the early going, Floyd was able to find his rhythm, staying in the center of the ring more often, and even when pressed to the ropes, moving and slipping punches better as the fight progressed.“Finally, I was in a tough, competitive fight,” Mayweather told Jim Gray after the fight, offering the likely nonsense idea that he wanted to face Maidana in a toe-to-toe battle. The story of the fight was different. Mayweather fought that way because Maidana forced him to do so. To Floyd’s credit, he won a fight that wasn’t exactly the way he wanted it to go. “I did go after him, but he was a difficult fighter,” Maidana said. He said he wants a rematch, saying, “I’ll have to give him a rematch, because I won the fight. I’m not scared of him. Why wouldn’t I give him a rematch?”Mayweather said, “If the fans want a rematch, we’ll do a rematch.” It was certainly an entertaining fight and a worthy pay-per-view main event, living up to the hype, or probably even exceeding it. Should there be a rematch, or should Floyd look to go on to another challenge, perhaps Amir Khan?
Sofiya VelikayaMoscow, Russia | AFP | Most Russian athletes want to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang despite a ban on the country’s team, the head of the athletes’ commission at the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) said Monday.“We have talked to all the athletes in all the winter sports. The majority of these want to take part in the Games,” said fencer Sofiya Velikaya.“The scientific commission supports the position of those sports figures who have decided or may yet decide to compete with neutral status, as well as respecting the position of those who won’t participate.“Athletes are fully aware that there won’t be a flag or the Russian colours, but they will be representing Russia whatever happens,” she added.The International Olympic Committee (IOC) last week decided to ban Russia from the 2018 Games that run from February 9-25 over its state-sponsored doping programme. It said it would only allow “clean” Russian athletes to participate under strict conditions and under the Olympic flag.Russian President Vladimir Putin said in October said that it would be a “humiliation” for Russian athletes to compete under the Olympic flag.He has subsequently softened his stance, however, saying Russia will not boycott the Games and will not stand in the way of athletes who hope to compete as individuals.Share on: WhatsApp
