What's Up With the World of Sports

          The world of sports nowadays is very much alive with all its latest happening. Whatever your sports inclination is and either you are an active follower of a certain discipline or a mere spectator, there are lots of reasons to feel excited on what is going on in the sports world. 

To cite some of these developments, allow me to share with you the following: 

1. The world heavyweight championship between the present champion Joseph Parker against the  equally heralded Hughie Fury. And although it was reported that the camp of Hughie was not satisfied with the decision but nevertheless, WBO itself through its VP was satisfied with the outcome of the game;

2.  Then last Saturday, one of the well publicised fight of the year was staged. The ever popular Triple G fought against the slugger Saul Canelo to a 12 round fight draw. This result also brought some controversies to some sports fans for they fell that Tripe G deserves to be the winner of the fight. And with this atmosphere surrounding even at the post fight, the fight, talks are ongoing for a possible rematch between these two exciting boxers. 

3. In the world of basketball particularly the National Basketball Association, several stories also made the headlines and one of them is the update on Derrick Rose as he makes his way to the Cleveland Cavaliers to be its point guard.
Athlete, in whatever sports he is in, always dreads the idea of having an injury and that exactly what happened to Rose. He was heralded as the next big thing a few years ago but then his performance was clouded by his strings of injuries and this brought to a halt to his exciting career.

4. Finally in the world of Australian football (footy), the whole Melbourne city is filled with enormous excitement as the city prepares for the AFL Grand Finals this coming Saturday at the MCG. The building up of the emotions of the fans is such in a highest level that they started to make things as excitement as ever as they prepared for this week's finals. Both teams' (Adelaide vs Richmond) fans are so eager to witness this another addition to the much illustrated world of Australian football. Good luck to both teams and may the best group win.
