- Turks claim record for 'world's largest Ataturk portrait'
Thousands of people on Tuesday came together in Ankara to form the world's largest portrait of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the modern Turkish republic who remains its number one national hero. At least 6,000 volunteers gathered outside the Anitkabir mausoleum, Ataturk's final resting place, to form the larger-than-life portrait for an event marking Turkey's Victory Day. Wearing black outfits and making a heart shape with their hands in the air, they formed the portrait as well as Ataturk's signature as they sought to set a world record. They stood still for 30 minutes under a searing sun while a helicopter carrying Guinness World Records officials hovered overhead.

- Maidana dares Mayweather to 'fight like a man'
Painting unbeaten champion Floyd Mayweather as an evasive coward in the ring, Argentine challenger Marcos Maidana called out his rival Tuesday ahead of their world welterweight title rematch next month. Mayweather, who won a majority decision over his South American rival in May, faces Maidana again on September 13 in Las Vegas for the World Boxing Association and World Boxing Council titles. "I'm going to be on him from the opening bell," Maidana said. Mayweather, 46-0 with 26 knockouts, began his "crying" on the eve of the first fight when a protest about the lack of front padding in the gloves Maidana planned to use and has also taunted his rival as a dirty fighter who uses mixed martial arts tactics.
