The WBA said Kameda would have to face Sakata in a mandatory title match after he wrested the crown from Denkaosen Kaowichit of Thailand in February.However, the Kameda camp refused the match because it is currently embroiled in a civil suit with Kyoei Boxing, its former employer and the current gym of Sakata, over fight money.Kameda Boxing Gym has ceased all activities since Shiro Kameda, Daiki’s father, had his boxing license stripped as punishment for verbally abusing WBC officials after his other son, Koki, failed in an attempt to unify the WBC flyweight crown.

Embed from Getty Images Everton boss Ronald Koeman admitted he was stunned by Chelsea’s brilliant performance after his team were thrashed 5-0 at Stamford Bridge.Eden Hazard scored twice as the Blues moved to the top of the Premier League in style. Koeman said: “They showed us a high level of football. We did not expect that difference on the pitch, but that’s what happened.AdChoices广告“It is good for everyone to see how the best technical players play; how they work, how they run, how they press – it’s a big lesson for everybody what happened on the pitch today.”Boss Antonio Conte’s preferred 3-4-3 system has emphatically brought the best out of Chelsea, who have won five league games in a row.And Koeman believes they have shown they are serious title contenders.He said: “I didn’t see Chelsea live (before today) – yes on television – but I think playing this system, winning five games in a row and not conceding, it is the best way for them and of course some of their players are showing the highest level of football. “I have never seen a team as strong playing this system. It is very difficult to play against the movement of Pedro, Hazard and Costa.“The manager has brought a winning mentality to the players and if they keep that they will fight for the tite for sure.” Click here for the latest Chelsea transfer gossip See also:Awesome Chelsea top after destroying EvertonConte hails players but calls for calm after Chelsea go topChelsea v Everton player ratingsChelsea boss Conte thanks fans Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Brits Rush to Take out This £200k Life Insurance Policy from Just £10pm* x Easy Way to Generate Extra Income x 20 Heartbreaking Selfies Taken Right Before Tragedy. # 10 is Insane x Last Nights Episode Left Viewers Speechless! x Final Moment: What the Cameraman Captures Next is Heartbreaking x 39 Eye-opening Photos Smuggled out of North Korea x Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

YOKOHAMA, Japan, (Reuters) – Japan’s Nissan Motor Co has signed U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka as its next brand ambassador, the automaker said on Thursday, tapping the tennis star’s youth, drive and Japanese roots to appeal to younger customers. The deal further raises the profile of the 20-year-old Osaka, who shot to international fame when she defeated American Serena Williams on Saturday to become the first Japanese player to claim a Grand Slam singles crown.“Growing up, my dad drove a Nissan, so being able to be a brand ambassador now, it feels like I’ve come full circle,” Osaka said, speaking mainly in English at a contract signing event at Nissan’s headquarters in Yokohama.Nissan said the passionate videogame player and Beyonce fan would appear in global promotions and advertising in its three-year contract, in something of a branding departure for a firm whose popular GT-R sports car attracts men aged 40 and older. The biracial Osaka, who was born in Japan to a Haitian-born father and Japanese mother and raised mainly in the United States, has won over the Japanese public with her self-effacing, deadpan manner as much as her sheer tennis talent.Glowing media reports called her a new heroine for Japan.Nissan joins a growing number of companies to sign her up for endorsements, such as Adidas AG, Yonex Co , Nissin Foods Co, Wowow Inc and Citizen Watch Co. Having Osaka as a face of Nissan gives it an edge in appealing to younger drivers as it looks to boost sales of its Leaf all-battery electric car, and promote automated and connected-driving technologies.BIRACIAL IDENTITYAs a biracial Japanese, Osaka’s leap into the limelight has brought hope to some “haafu,” or half-Japanese, who have suffered discrimination and bullying in a largely ethnically homogenous country. Jun Soejima, a black Japanese with an afro who appears on NHK’s breakfast show, believes Osaka’s fame and positive reputation can help create greater acceptance for Japanese of diverse backgrounds.“I think she can” help change social attitudes, said Soejima, whose father is African-American. “She’s amazing … just a wonderful woman and a human being.”Soejima, 34, said he was bullied as a boy, with other children refusing to play with him. “I hated being different,” he added. “I knew I was a different colour, and I wished I could be the same.” Although he does not experience much discrimination these days, he does still get stared at, he said, adding that he hoped the prejudice would eventually fade.“The fact that I’m now able to express myself on national television shows that the way of looking at people is changing.”“JUST WHO I AM”Japanese are becoming more comfortable with ethnic diversity as they interact with foreign tourists and the economy becomes more globalized. The emergence of other biracial athletes, such as baseball player Yu Darvish and sprinter Asuka Cambridge, has also helped build acceptance for those of diverse backgrounds.Joe Oliver, a 35-year-old black Japanese who works as an engineer and model, says that when he was young he was urinated on, burned with cigarette butts and called “an eyesore”.“I think mixed raced people’s success, such as Osaka’s, can help to bring down the wall most Japanese have between people with different backgrounds,” Oliver said. Osaka herself was not raised in Japan; she moved with her family to the United States at age 3 and has lived there since.Asked on Thursday how she felt about being a high-profile bi-racial athlete in Japan, Osaka said the question “really throws me off”.“For me it’s not something that I have to think about. For me it’s just who I am,” she said at the Nissan event. “I don’t think I’m a mix of three whatever, I just think I am me.”

The Irish rider collected 6,250 euro for his win.Allen had already won Saturday’s Jump and Drive competition at Aachen with Australian partner Boyd Exell, but his luck did not hold in this afternoon’s One Million Euro Aachen Grand Prix, where he faulted twice with Molly Malone V in the first round, adding a time fault to finish on nine faults.Fellow Irish rider Denis Lynch also had an uncharacteristically poor first round with Abbervail van het Dingeshof, collecting a total of 16 faults.

ABC News(WASHINGTON) — Protesters marched on Washington D.C.’s National Mall on Sunday morning to draw attention to the situation in hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico. “The Unity for Puerto Rico March” featured politicians as well as boldface names, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, whose agenda was to turn a spotlight on the devastated island territory, and work to update the 1920 law called the Jones Act, which mandates that American ships distribute all its goods. Representative Luis Gutierrez of Illinois said Puerto Rico had been neglected, which he called “one of the gravest injustices that I have seen” since he came to Washington as a congressman.Then he took shots directly at President Trump.The president recently unveiled a hurricane aid package that secures $44 billion in aid, a figure that many lawmakers said was too low.He criticized Trump for failing to serve his country in the military, like so many Puerto Ricans do.“We have a president of the United States who on four occasion … said, ‘My foot hurts, I cannot serve,’” he said. “But he was able to take those feet to every golf course all over the world and walk on them.”The congressman was referring to how Trump received four student deferments from serving in the Vietnam War.During the presidential campaign, Trump told ABC News chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz that during the war he “had a minor medical deferment for feet, for a bone spur of the foot, which was minor.”Gutierrez went on to say how Trump has no right to disparage Puerto Ricans, who he said are being shortchanged in relief shipments of food, supplies and medicine.“Well, let me just say to the President of the United States each and every time an airplane showed up in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, you filled it with Puerto Ricans and they said ‘Presente!’” he said.Sunday’s march included protesters young and old who proudly raised the island territory’s red, white and blue flag while snaking through the U.S. capital, singing and chanting in unison: “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!” “Who’s in the house? Puerto Rico’s in the house!” and also repeating “The Jones Act has got to go.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
