ERFURT, Germany—German cruiserweight Marco Huck retained his WBO title
against British challenger Ola Afolabi by the narrowest of margins, a draw by
majority decision on Saturday. Roddy White Black Jersey . In a rematch of
Hucks first defence of the title he won from Victor Emilio Ramirez in 2009,
Afolabi had the better of the opening rounds. “I was tired early on, but Im a
fighter and I fought,” Huck said. “Thankfully it was just enough in the end.” He
was left with a bloody nose at the end of the third, when his trainer urged him
to “do something” if he wanted to defend his belt. The defending champ somehow
recovered and delivered a flurry of punches from both sides to leave Afolabi in
real trouble just before the end of the ninth. “I give Marco a a lot of credit,”
Afolabi said. “I thought he was tired around round six, but he just kept coming
until round 12.” Both fighters gave everything in the final round, when
exhaustion prevented either from delivering the telling blow with Afolabi, in
particular, wobbling but doing just enough to hang on. Judges Paul Thomas of
Britain and Ingo Barrabas of Germany scored it 114-114, while Nelson Vazquez of
Puerto Rico awarded it 115-113 in favour of the defending champion. Huck was
back at cruiserweight after losing to Alexander Povetkin for the WBA heavyweight
belt in February. His record was 34-2-1 (25 KOs), while the Los Angeles-based
Afolabi was 19-2-4 (9 KOs). Matt Ryan Pink Jersey . The Raptors announced

one-sided victory ended Djokovics 10-match winning streak that included the
Australian Open title and his bid for a fourth successive Dubai title. In the
final, Murray will meet Roger Federer, who edged Juan Martin del Potro 7-6 (5),

.A. Dickey made yet another strong bid to start for the National League in the
All-Star game. Deion Sanders Falcons Jersey . A brief
statement from World Wrestling Entertainment says the 62-year-old Lawler will be
heading home in the next several days. He collapsed at the announcers table at a
WWE event at Montreals Bell Centre last Monday night, after suffering a mild
heart attack. William Moore Jersey . At no point, however,
did Brandon Bass merit marquee billing in his first season in Boston. The fifth,
newest and least-heralded member of the Celtics starting lineup, Bass erupted
for a career playoff-high 27 points on Monday night, scoring 18 in the third
quarter as Boston pulled away from the Philadelphia 76ers to win 101-85 and take
a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. PHILADELPHIA —Brian Boucher
wants a shot at playing in the Stanley Cup final he missed last season. Hes been
so strong in the net, hes making the Philadelphia Flyers believe they can play
again in June. First, though, a reward for its fast start: Philadelphia is
sending its coach to the all-star game. Boucher stopped 34 shots while
James van Riemsdyk and Danny Briere each scored to lead the Flyers to a 2-1 win
over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. Flyers coach Peter Laviolette earned a
spot as co-coach of one of the teams at the Jan. 30 all-star game. Joel
Quenneville, coach of the defending Stanley Cup-champion Chicago Blackhawks,
will coach one team. Laviolette and Vancouvers Alain Vigneault will share duties
with the other team. “Itll be fun. Ive never been to one before,” Laviolette
said. The Flyers have 26 wins and 57 points through 41 games and are determined
to win the Stanley Cup that eluded them in the final last season. “Weve just
carried over what we did last year in the playoffs,” Boucher said. “Our goal
this year was to put ourselves in better position come spring time. Weve done a
good job thus far, but theres still a lot of work to do.” Boucher, who started
last years post-season run as the No. 1 goalie before he was hurt, stopped 34
shots. He won his 10th game of the season and has combined with rookie
Sergei Bobrovsky, the surprise opening night starter, to give the Flyers some
needed consistency in net. Boucher sprained the MCL in his left knee in Game 5
of the Eastern Conference semifinal, allowing Michael Leighton to lead the
Flyers all the way to a Game 6 loss in the final. Leighton is in the minors now
while Boucher is rolling along. “Ive tried not to let the other stuff be a
factor,” Boucher said. The NHL-worst Devils lost a day after trading captain
Jamie Langenbrunner to Dallas. New Jersey lost its 11th straight road game, one
away from tying the team record set in 1983. Martin Brodeur was benched for the
third straight game but replaced an ineffective Johan Hedberg in the first
period. Hedberg allowed two quick goals and was yanked. Bouchers lone goal
allowed wasnt totally his fault. Devils defenceman Andy Greenes shot deflected
off Flyers defenceman Ville Leinos skate and soared over Bouchers right shoulder
to make it 2-1 midway through the second. He stopped and smothered
Dainius Zubruss hard-charging breakawway with 15 seconds left to settle some
nerves. Kroy Biermann Womens Jersey. Boucher was
perfect after the second—nearly as flawless as Brodeur in his return.
Brodeur, the NHLs career wins leader, has only five this season and was demoted
to Hedbergs backup for the last two games. His spot on the bench for the third
straight game didnt last long. On a 4-on-4 shift, Van Riemsdyk beat Hedberg from
the left circle for his 10th goal of the season and a 1-0 lead. Briere, making a
strong case to be named to the all-star team with 21 goals, scored a power-play
goal with 5:19 left in the first to make it 2-0 and send Hedberg to the bench.
Briere wont stump for an all-star bid, but he has one fan who might have the
political clout to make it happen. “Youre the guy!,” American vice-president Joe
Biden told Briere when they met in the locker room. Bidens wife, Jill, is a
diehard Flyers fan and keeps a Briere bobblehead doll on her nightstand. The
last face Jill Biden sees at night belongs to a pint-sized, bobbling Briere.
Briere laughed as he said Joe Biden gave him good-natured ribbing for stealing
his wifes attention each day. Briere helped make it a long day for the Devils.
Hedberg allowed two goals on 10 shots. Brodeur settled the situation, stopping
all eight shots in the second period. But it was too late already for the
punchless Devils. Brodeur made 19 saves. “I know its only been a week, but it
seemed like a long time for me,” he said. “Its been good taking a step back, to
work on my game, not focus on the atmosphere of losing every day and getting it
out of my head.” The lost season made them eager to deal Langenbrunner, who
played on the Devils Stanley Cup-winning team in 2003. More changes are likely
ahead for the Devils, who havent won a road game since Nov. 3 in Chicago. “Im as
shocked as anybody,” Brodeur said. “When you look at what we brought to the
lineup on paper, nobody expected it. Now, its hit home its going be a battle for
us the rest of the season.” The Flyers played their first home game since Dec.
20 in front of a quiet crowd that made it through another snowstorm to get to
the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers couldnt get too cozy at home—they start a
four-game road trip Tuesday. NOTES: The Flyers hit 26 wins at the midpoint of
the season for the seventh time in team history. They last did it in 2005-06.
... The Devils lost 12 straight road games Oct. 19-Dec. 1, 1983. ’ ’ ’
