matic final couple of drives, but it was from love520's blog

RIO DE JANEIRO -- It was a big blow for the pros in Rio de Janeiro. Custom New York Mets Jerseys .The three professional fighters that bucked 112 years of amateur competition in Olympic boxing have all been eliminated from the tournament.Cameroonian fighter Hassan NDam, Thailands Amnat Ruenroeng and Italys Carmine Tommasone are history.Ruenroeng was the last one eliminated. Sofiane Oumiha of France absolutely battered him over the final two rounds before the fight was stopped Monday. Ruenroeng was gassed after a competitive first round, and took two standing eight counts in the second. He was stopped in the third.Tommasone lost a unanimous decision to Cubas Lazaro Alvarez in a lightweight bout Monday morning. NDam was ousted over the weekend.The trio wasnt exactly the big professional names the International Boxing Association had hoped to compete when it decided earlier this year to allow any boxer to attempt to qualify for the Olympics.Floyd Mayweather stayed retired. Manny Pacquiao never budged from his role as a Philippine senator. Amir Khan didnt try for another medal run.Eight years after Ruenroeng fell just short of a medal in Beijing, the 36-year-old former IBF flyweight champion was simply dominated in a lightweight bout. The 21-year-old Oumiha connected with a big right hand in the third round for another eight count and the match was stopped.It doesnt change anything if its professional or not, Oumiha said. Ive been working for the Olympics and am well prepared to fight and win.Ruenroeng, who had served time in a Thai prison, earned a spot at the Beijing Olympics and won two fights, but fell one fight shy of a medal in the light flyweight division.Ruenroeng and Tommasone had each won their first fights at the Rio Olympics.The 32-year-old Tommasone never found his stride against Alvarez, a three-time world champion in two classes.I consider them professional amateurs, Tommasone said. They are professional players of three rounds. I tried to adapt to the three-round matches but it was difficult to adapt.Tommasone fights as a 126-pound professional featherweight, but chose the 132-pound lightweight division for the Olympics, likely making it easier to deal with daily weigh-ins.Three-round bouts, the demands of the daily weigh-ins in a multi-fight tournament and injury concerns all played a role in keeping more professional fighters from changing their pursuit from championship gold around their waist to Olympic gold around their neck.There was also some fear in the boxing community that the tournament would have been stuffed with lopsided matchups had the likes of Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin actually signed up.Turned out, the amateurs are the last ones left fighting.He was just better than me, Tommasone said. He won the match. Dwight Gooden Jersey .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open. Jose Reyes Jersey .

Eli Manning led the Giants to a fifth win of the season Game-changer - Take your pick from the Eagles field goal opportunities to keep them in touching distance, but lets give Jason Pierre Paul the credit for a stunning block of Caleb Sturgis 40-yard attempt just before half-time that would have brought Philadelphia to within eight points.Stat of the game - 364. Carson Wentz continues to impress and its his receiving options who cost him at crucial times during a career-best total of 364 yards. The rookie is here to stay. Carson Wentz put up a career best 364 yards but it was his two early interceptions that proved crucial Scoring Summary 1st Quarter PHI 0-7 NYG TD - O Beckham 26yd pass E Manning Extra point R Gould PHI 0-14 NYG TD - R Lewis 30yd pass E Manning Extra point R Gould PHI 3-14 NYG FG - C Sturgis 34yds 2nd Quarter PHI 10-14 NYG TD - R Matthews 8yd run Extra point C Sturgis PHI 10-21 NYG TD - O Beckham 1yd pass E Manning Extra point R Gould 3rd Quarter PHI 17-21 NYG TD - K Barner 3yd run Extra point C Sturgis PHI 17-28 NYG TD - S Shepard 32yd pass E Manning Extra point R Gould 4th Quarter PHI 20-28 NYG FG - C Sturgis 26yds PHI 23-28 NYG FG - C Sturgis 38yds The GameA big divisional match-up with both teams entering the game above . Tom Seaver Jersey. 500 and chasing the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys, and it was the Giants who roared out of the starting blocks.Wentz had begun his rookie season with a staggering run of clean passes but the much-vaunted New York defence hassled him into two early interceptions that proved to be all important despite Wentzs recovery.First up on the Eagles opening drive, Landon Collins made the interception handing the Giants a first down on the 31-yard line and, within a couple of plays, Manning found Beckham for a 26-yard touchdown and a 7-0 lead.That was doubled within a few minutes, this time Andrew Adams picking off Wentz in an almost identical spot and Manning found a 30-yard pass to Roger Lewis, Robbie Gould adding the extra point again. Ryan Matthews touchdown was not enough for the Eagles who suffered a fourth defeat of the season A Caleb Sturgis field goal got Philadelphia on the board and with the kicker in red-hot form, the decision by Doug Pedersen to twice run the ball on the fourth down seemed all the more surprising and would prove pivotal in the final conclusion.Ryan Matthews capped off a 70-yard drive from Wentz, which featured Brice Treggs heavily, to bring the Eagles within four points, only for OBJ to get on the end of a one-yard pass to re-establish the lead with his second score of the game.When Pedersen did opt for the field goal just before half-time, Jason Pierre Pauls brilliant block kept Sturgis out from 40 yards and ensured New Yorks 21-10 lead remained in tact.Kenjon Barner got on the board early in the second half to keep Philadelphia within touching distance, Nelson Agholor making the big play to set up the score only for the Giants to come back themselves with another big play from Manning.
