Sergey Kovalev says Andre Wards points win was wrong decision

The Russian called for a rematch immediately after losing his IBF, WBA Super and WBO world titles to a close points decision at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Kovalev put Ward on the floor in the second round only to lose 114-113 on all three judges’ scorecards

“It is the wrong decision,” Kovalev said.

“I do not want to say my opinion, so the people are the witnesses are here and everybody saw what happened.

“I made the best shape for this fight since I was 11 years old. It was the [biggest] fight of all my life and really I am disappointed with the judges decision.

“He got a few rounds. I am agreeing with that, it is not the full fight and controlled all the rounds. I lost maybe three rounds in all the fight.

“Of course I want a rematch. And I will kick his a***. I just wanted to show boxing I am good boxer and fight rounds – not small rounds.”

Kovalev was making his third appearance in Las Vegas in comparison to the winner, Ward, who was making his debut.

‘Krusher’ admitted he had no problem with the crowed backing the unbeaten Californian but made the point that judges, Burt A Clements, Glenn Trowbridge and John McKaie, are also American.

“I am the guest here in the USA… he’s a local and all the judges were from the USA,” he said.

“I agree they support a boxer but be honest, this is a sport – do not make it politics. I won this fight and everybody agreed.”

Ward, who suffered a knockdown for the first time in 11 years, refused to discuss a rematch, saying he would never make a decision like that so soon after a fight.

The Californian did pay credit to Kovalev but believes the unanimous decision was the correct outcome.

“I have been a champion and was a champion before I came in here and I knew it was going to be a tough fight,” he said.

“You never anticipate getting dropped; that was the first time in my career getting dropped but I was pleased with myself they way I responded.

“He did everything that I expected him too, including fade a little bit. He started to slow up. He never quit but he started to slow.

Election live: Sanders and Clinton deadlocked as Nevada caucuses results trickle in

the third round of the 2016 election begins with Democrats facing off in Nevada and Republicans try Trump catch in South Carolina

The third round of the 2016 election begins Democrats in the face stare off in Nevada and Republicans are trying to overtake Trump in South Carolina

Just a correction from earlier in the blog, I reported that Hillary Clinton has “all six” coin tosses in Iowa.

An eagle-eyed reader pointed out that this – which reached record from an article in the Des Moines – is not entirely accurate. According to the Washington Post:

Other news articles over the course of the day showed that Sanders won another elsewhere in the state; it was mainly those, it seems, that allegedly the state Democratic Party. We were never allowed to know how much coin toss there in total. But we can estimate how important it was. If Iowa County 11,000 delegates selected Monday finally compared to 1400 state deputies, implying that about eight County deputies equal to one at the state level. Clinton Iowa by four state-delegate equivalents, which means – according to my calculations – it would have taken to win 32 more coin flips to have been like Sanders who’s seated on the top

more . Over 40% of Nevada districts reporting, the race remains painfully near: Clinton 51.6% to 48.3% Sanders.

The former foreign minister seems to build a wider margin in the key Clark County, home to Las Vegas and most of Nevada’s population. But since the Nevada System split delegates – descend several districts to obscure valbylpot rules on a pack of cards – the state may prove to be no clear winner, as the Iowa caucuses earlier this month

. Democracy in action in Reno, Nevada, where supporters of Clinton and Sanders tries to lure undecided voters to their candidate

The unpredictable. “You can imagine these great ideas, but if you do not support behind ca get it, I’m just saying …”

Sanders-ISTA: “I think that our country is moving in the towards a more progressive direction … I’m not saying that we have these other people leave behind, but … “

the Clinton-ITO:” the right to much more right, and it is fair scary … “

In Las Vegas, Le Roy Graham and Linda Devaull Graham is a house divided. He returned Clinton, as he did in ’08. She supported Sanders and together with Obama eight years ago. She was to vote in a classroom at the Del Webb through the school, where they each attempt to win over the fans go under the compound caucus. Le Roy stomped the line Hilary things can be done.

“I’m watching Hillary since his first wife, the first lady of Arkansas was,” he said. “She always people she is for Obamacare argument under Administration Bill Clinton In a perfect world, Bernie will be the candidate, but I do not think he is eligible …”

His wife jumping in “this is what he said about Obama, he was not eligible.”

Her husband admit to the point. But when it comes to the vote, Clinton Sanders knocking out water: Linda was one of only three voters who support him in the classroom. Clinton 24.

Reno partisans for Clinton and Sanders work on the number of uncertain voters.

More than a quarter of the districts results in Nevada is now. What do we know? At this time, it is not enough, except that it already begin to feel now as a repetition of Iowa, where Clinton and Sanders was tied in effect.

The former foreign minister and the Vermont senator his neck and -neck. Much can and will change as the rest of the results came in first, and it may be that either Clinton or Sanders pulling for, but it might think worth about what a close race

answer :. Good for Sanders. This was a prerequisite Clinton campaign thought they win from the back of minority voters (they make up nearly half the population Nevada’s – very different from mostly white Iowa and New Hampshire).

polling in the state is notoriously unreliable, but only a few months ago, the surveys show Clinton has a big advantage over its rebellious challenger. Based on what we’ve seen so far, it is no longer the case.

Nevada still absolutely nail biting as results trickle in.

32% of districts reporting, Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders leads the traditionally margin – 51.66% to 48.24% ..

It is always one game this point

gekoukus is very consistent in Reno, reports Sam Levin:.

at the University of Nevada Reno website, where many students who participate for the first time in the caucus, the organizers have briefly ran English forms

This mean non-Spanish speakers Spanish taalvorme had used to sign up, so help a bit of confusion and forcing some Spanish speakers with the translation.

After a short period, but the site has documents in English.

“We have a resupply of English forms – so we are good now,” a representative of the Democratic Party has just Guardian

It is a very slow start here. – The organizers still processing voter two hours after the official beginning of time

Interesting:. A neighborhood in Pahrump decided by cutting deck: has had some pretty incredible luck

Hillary. with tiebreaks so far this election cycle

This factoid, MSNBC’s Ari Melber, is bad news game for Hillary Clinton – first caucus-goers are more likely to be for Bernie:

only from Chris McGreal, the full results of the caucus at Del Webb school in Las Vegas.

Many of the koukusse has slowed, but

Ars talks car design with Faraday Future at CES

Ars talks car design with Faraday Future at CES

ars.AD.queue.push ([“xrailTop” {sz: “300×251” KWS: [“bottom”] collapse: true}]); LAS VEGAS-At the Monday evening before CES kicked off well, several hundred journalists and GDPs under a press-fit illuminated tent in a vacant lot to witness the public of a new electric car from an initial named Faraday Future. The company, flush with cash due to the owner of LeTV (think Netflix Chinese) touted has the event for some time, and promised to show us what it called a “Tesla-killer.”

As it turns out, the car under the skin is not actually a Model S opponent, or will it go into production. Instead, we have a race-inspired concept known as the VF Zero 1, a 1000-hp electric vehicle to demonstrate the company rather places. As you can see in the video above, the next day we sit with Richard Kim, Faraday Future’s head of design, to talk about the car.

Kim is not a member of the church he previously worked at BMW, where he was responsible for both the i3 and i8 exteriors-so we are very excited to see that he and his design team to come up with the company’s other models. Interestingly, the entire design done in silico, without the traditional clay models that car designers usually work with. He describes the process which a bunch of guys in a room with involve a number of monitors prior to the actual carbon fiber and metal as a very hard work and late nights to meet aa CES-imposed deadline.

The VF Zero necessarily one wheel includes a dock for your smartphone.

The chair is a 45th ?? angle inspired by NASA’s zero-G research.

It’s no secret that we are big fans of the concept cars, and the VF Zero 1 is an attractive machine with a very clever aerodynamics at work. There is only a single seat in the all-white, NASA research inspired cabin, and steering wheel incorporate your smartphone as a display. Although VF Zero 1 is not actually a running vehicle, it was IFA, it would be an electric motor for each wheel along witha Northa a top speed of 200mph (321km / h).

It is important for the company to use the same modular architecture as the upcoming production car skateboard chassis with the batteries in the middle, between the axles. Nick Sampson, Faraday’s head of R & amp; amp; D, explains in the event that the modular platform will allow for one or more electric cars, and as we discuss with Kim, lends itself to almost any configuration of the car of SUVs to minivans and sedans to sports cars.

The public Monday not met with great response from the media, and the replacement of a concept rather than a production-ready EV led to cries of Vaporware. This can be a bit harsh, as the company has been pioneering a giant factory just outside Las Vegas later this month. CES also peppered with rumors that Faraday Future secret move from Apple in the automotive industry can be, in the same way as everyone thought Blue Harvest was a horror film, not the cover story for the return of the Jedi. It seems a bit unbelievable to us.
