    After 112 years of amateur competition, the Olympics are welcoming professional boxers. Air Max 98 Supreme Blue .All three of them.The International Boxing Associations high-profile plan to entice prominent pros to Rio de Janeiro didnt work, leaving the sport without the star-studded tournament many apparently wanted.Only a trio of traditional pros will compete for gold medals, and only hardcore boxing fans have ever heard of them: Cameroons Hassan NDam, Thailands Amnat Ruenroeng and Italys Carmine Tommasone.The Rio tournament will be more notable for what the men arent wearing. AIBA has removed headguards from male Olympic fighters for the first time since 1980.The biggest stars again could be the women, who are back for their second Olympics after providing the best moments in London.Here are some more things to know when the 286-person tournament begins Aug. 6:REIGNING CHAMPSAll three gold medal winners from the inaugural womens tournament in London are back to attempt to defend their titles. Britains Nicola Adams, Irelands Katie Taylor and American middleweight Claressa Shields all stuck with their sport, which has grown rapidly in prominence and quality over the past several years. In fact, only the dominant Shields is a strong favorite to repeat, given the improved competition at flyweight and lightweight.CAN YOU SEE MEAIBA announced its plan to remove Olympic headgear from the men three years ago, citing research claiming the bulky pads actually cause more concussions than they prevent. The quality of their science is considered dubious by many, but many fighters prefer to compete without the gear, and the sport is undeniably more telegenic when fans can see the fighters faces.UNKINDEST CUTThe biggest problem with the headgear removal is likely to be cuts, which will develop more frequently without the facial protection. Qualifying tournaments have been filled with fighters unable to continue to their next bout after getting cut, and Olympic stars seem likely to meet the same fate.BIG NAMESAIBA has tried for years to become a player in international professional boxing under President Wu Ching-Kuo, but it has succeeded only in nations without an established pro boxing culture. The Olympic-style sports growth in former Soviet republics will be obvious in Rio, where Kazakhstan (12 fighters), Azerbaijan (11), Uzbekistan (11) and Russia (11) will be well-represented along with the likes of Britain (12) and China (11). Cuba (10) has a fighter in every mens weight class, but still wont allow women to compete.EVEN THE SCOREAnother big change for Rio is the scoring system, which is no longer based on punch-counting. Fighters will be judged on the 10-point must system traditionally used in pro boxing, with the decision of each judge reduced to a single number. The final scores in the fights will be announced as 3-0 or 2-1. Unlike the headgear change, the move away from reviled punch-scoring has been greeted with broad approval. Still, it probably wont stop more than half of the losing fighters from claiming they were robbed, just as they do in every Olympic-style boxing tournament.YOUNG AMERICANSThe U.S. team is the historic leader in total Olympic boxing medals and golds, but the Americans are sending just eight fighters to Rio after four men and one woman failed to secure spots through qualifying tournaments. The team might be small, but Shields and lightweight Mikaela Mayer are both medal contenders. The U.S. men didnt win a single medal in London, but touted bantamweight Shakur Stevenson has a great shot to end that drought in Rio.THE GREATESTYoure not seeing things on the schedule: Thats Muhammad Ali competing in Rio. The 20-year-old British flyweight with the conspicuous name is among the medal favorites after training in the same gym as Athens silver medalist Amir Khan.HES BACKRussian ex-world champion Albert Selimov is best known for losing his first fight in Beijing to Ukraines Vasyl Lomachenko, the two-time gold medalist whose amateur legend truly began with that masterful performance. While Lomachenko reigns as a professional world champion eight years later, the 30-year-old Selimov is back at his second Olympics, fighting for Azerbaijan as a naturalized citizen. He is a medal favorite at lightweight.WATCH OUTCuba, another traditional world power, could return to prominence in Rio after winning just two gold medals in London -- a down Olympic cycle by its standards. Among its several strong medal contenders are London flyweight gold medalist Robeisy Ramirez, now fighting at bantamweight; three-time amateur light heavyweight world champion Julio Cesar La Cruz; and lightweight Lazaro Alvarez, a three-time world champion in two classes. Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 . Terms of the deal were not immediately available. The 26-year-old finished last season with Clevelands Triple-A affiliate in Columbus after signing with the Indians in August. Air Max 98 Supreme Red . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . . From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. DETROIT -- Twice, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon intentionally walked Miguel Cabrera with a runner on second, giving Prince Fielder a chance to break the game open with a big hit. The move worked both times -- and it was the Rays who finally ended a scoreless deadlock with three runs in the ninth inning. Matt Joyce, Evan Longoria and Desmond Jennings each drove in a run in Tampa Bays last at-bat, and the Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 3-0 on Wednesday night. In the sixth and the eighth innings, the Rays gave Cabrera a pass with two out, and each time, Fielder struck out with runners on first and second to end the inning. "Theres probably times youre going to roll the dice and let the pitcher pitch to Cabrera," Maddon said. "Everything depends on the pitcher. Its not a generic moment. Theres a lot of different things to be read into that moment -- your pitcher, how he reacts to left-handed hitters, all that kind of stuff is important." Coming into the game, Fielder was 8 of 9 with a walk and 10 RBIs in his previous 10 plate appearances following walks by Cabrera. Alex Cobb allowed five hits in 7 2-3 innings for Tampa Bay, and Joel Peralta (1-2) fanned Fielder to end the eighth. Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 12th save in 17 chances. Sam Fuld started the ninth with a bunt single, eluding Fielders tag and diving into first base. Fuld went to third on Ben Zobrists single, and Joyce hit a sacrifice fly off Doug Fister (5-3) to drive in the first run, with Zobrist advancing to second on the throw to the plate. Longorias single made it 2-0 and chased Fister. Jennings added another insurance run with a run-scoring triple off Drew Smyly. Fister allowed three runs and seven hits in 8 1-3 innings. Fister pitched seven scoreless innings in his previous start against Pittsburgh, but the Tigers were shut out in that game, too. "This is definitely a tough loss to swallow, especially to have it happen to Doug for the second game in a row," Detroit catcher Alex Avila said. "There always seems to be one guy who takes the brunt of these stretches -- we go a bunch of games where we cant get him any runns -- and Doug is getting that right now. Air Max 98 Supreme Black. quot; Hitting rallies were few and far between, especially after both teams wasted good chances to score in the third. The Rays had runners on first and third with one out when Fielder made a diving stop on Fulds grounder. Fielder threw home to Avila, catching Jose Lobaton in a rundown. Avila ran Lobaton back to third before tagging him and Yunel Escobar, who was trying to come all the way around from first. "Your idea there is to get in a rundown and permit the runner to get to third base," Maddon said. "Neither one really had a good moment right there." Both runners were called out, and the unusual double play ended that threat. But the Tigers couldnt capitalize on their own first-and-third, one-out situation in the bottom of the inning. Avisail Garcia was caught trying to steal second, and Andy Dirks grounded out. Fielder extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a fourth-inning single, and he ended the Tampa Bay seventh with an unassisted double play when he caught James Loneys line drive and doubled Longoria off first. Cobb was terrific in his first outing since May 26. The right-hander missed a start because of a cut finger on his throwing hand. The Tigers could barely hit the ball out of the infield early against Cobb, who has allowed more than three earned runs only once in 11 starts this year. "When youre given nine days off by the team, you kind of have to go out there and eat up some innings," Cobb said. "It was a hard-fought game the whole way. Doug Fister threw a great game against us, and it was a battle. Those games are a lot of fun to be a part of." Rays left fielder Kelly Johnson was a late scratch because of back tightness. Maddon said he expected Johnson to be ready to play Thursday. NOTES: Maddon said ace David Price (strained left triceps) might be ready to throw off a mound around the time the team returns home for a series with Baltimore that starts Friday. ... Detroit RHP Max Scherzer (7-0) will take the mound Thursday against Tampa Bay RHP Roberto Hernandez (3-5) in the finale of this three-game series. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
