- Mayweather dampens hopes for Pacquiao fight
Unbeaten fighter Floyd Mayweather dampened talk of a possible mega-fight agreement with Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, a day after the Asian star's promoter said a deal was near. Mayweather posted a message on his Shots account that said in part "While they continue to lie about making the fight... I'm just going to continue to travel and explore the world on my private jet. Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum told the New York Post on Friday that he was optimistic a Pacquiao-Mayweather deal for a May 2 fight in Las Vegas would be completed in the next couple of days, with only a few final details to be settled between rival telecasters HBO and Showtime, the rights holders for Pacquiao and Mayweather respectively. Mayweather, who turns 38 on February 24, left England's Amir Khan hanging for months until announcing on his birthday last year that he would fight Argentina's Marcos Maidana instead.
- Lampard moved, Mourinho mute after stalemate
Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard praised the supporters of his old club after he was granted a warm reception on his return to Stamford Bridge with Manchester City on Saturday. The 36-year-old midfielder joined City on a short-term deal last year after ending his 13-year association with Chelsea, and scored a late equaliser in September's reverse fixture at the Etihad Stadium. Chelsea's fans chanted "Super Frankie Lampard!" as their former favourite completed a lap of honour after coming on as a late substitute in Saturday's 1-1 draw and he admitted that it had been a moving experience. "From a personal point of view it was a bit of a strange day, coming back to Stamford Bridge," said Lampard, who is Chelsea's all-time record goal-scorer with 211 goals.
