Vacant WBC Flyweight Title – Kaikanha v Navarette

mexico

Naverette silences the home crowd in three

Mexico’s Juan Hernandez Naverette went into the lions den in Thailand and beat home favourite Nawaphon Kaikanha. The Thai appeared comfortable in the first two round and there was nothing to suggest what was to happen in the third. Naverette caught Kaikanha with a clean left up. The Thai boxer got up at eight but sensing the finish the Mexican then launched a blitz of hard shots leaving the ref no option than to step in and stop the fight. It the Kaikanha first defeat and an impressive display from Navarette who went into the fight the underdog but came out the Champion.

Unification WBC & WBA Welterweight Title – Thurman v Garcia

usa

Thurman gets split decision in fight that fails to deliver the hype

A battle of two unbeaten fighter in New York, most were expecting an explosive contest between WBC Champion Danny Garcia and WBA Champion Keith Thurman. In the end it delivered a fairly cagey affair. Despite a quick start from Thurman he then backed off into jab and move mode keeping at at range. The fight was tough to score as Garcia was coming forward most of the time but Thurman was delivering the higher quality shots on the counter. In a contest that could have gone either way, the scores were as close as it looked with Thurman getting a split decision by four and two points on two card with Garcia getting the other by two points. There is scope for a rematch, although the stunted nature of much of the contest could mean the demand is not there.

South Africa take the series win in decider

South Africa have won a second series in a row on New Zealand soil after winning the decider in a low scoring contest at Eden Park. The South Africans made the right call in fielding first as New Zealand found it difficult to find any rhythm. Only Colin de Grandhomme with 32 got into the 30’s as New Zealand were bowled out for 149. South Africa eased to their target as Faf du Plessis with 51 not out and David Miller 45 Not out both saw it through.

Porterfield ton gives Ireland the edge

The extra experience of Ireland told as they took a 1-0 lead in their series with the UAE. Ireland captain and opener William Porterfield top scored with 100 and Kevin O’Brien hit 67 enabling Ireland to post a good total of 270 which was always going to be a tall order for the UAE to chase down despite the excellent efforts of Zahoor Khan who took 6 wickets for the hosts. So it proved as they got behind the run rate from the start. Graham Dockrell took three wickets as Ireland eased their way to an 85 run win with no UAE player making a half century.

Two wins in a row for Leicester

Leicester City have six points out of six this week after victory over fellow strugglers Hull City. Sam Clucas, who began his career with Leicester, opened the scoring for Hull on just six minutes but from there the Champions took over. Christian Fuchs leveled after good work from Jamie Vardy. Riyad Mahrez got his first goals since November from the edge of the box to put the Foxes ahead and and own goal from Tom Huddlestone completed the 3-1 win giving Leicester a five point buffer between themselves and the drop zone.

Brilliant Liverpool sweep Arsenal aside

Liverpool recovered from midweek defeat with an excellent win against Arsenal at Anfield. The reds were two up at the break after a superb first half taking full advantage of Arsenal’s controversial call not to start Alexis Sanchez. Both the goals scored at the back post from low crosses, the first from Roberto Firmino and the second from Sadio Mane. Arsenal improved in the second half and Danny Welbeck got one back looping the ball over Simon Mignolet. Liverpool completed the win with a fast counter attack, Adam Lallana put Dicock away down the right and he crossed perfectly into the path of the on rushing Georginio Wijnaldum to score. The 3-1 win means Liverpool move up to third in the table and right back on the battle for the top four.

Derby fightback for first win in seven

Derby County have their first win in seven games after first falling behind at Pride Park against Barnsley. After a goalless first half the visitors from Yorkshire took the lead as Matty James rose to head home a long throw. The lead lasted two minutes as Tom Ince struck after some poor defending. Ince then hit the post shortly after as Derby took control, the winner came through a deflected shot from David Nugent getting his first goal for the club. Derby move up to 10th after the victory but still 10 points away from the play offs which still look a long shot.

Clough is back at Forest

Forest have a new hero after a stunning display to dispatch promotion chasing Brighton at the City Ground. All the goals came in the second half and the key man is a name synonymous with the club. The first goal was controversial as Zach Clough, no relation to those other famous Clough’s who have graced the club, shot and Brighton were convinced Britt Assombalonga got a touch from on offside position, the ref gave the goal and it was awarded to Clough for his first goal since moving from Bolton. Ben Osborn tapped in to seal the points and Forest were awarded a penalty in injury time, which Clough put away for his second. This is by far the most impressive display of the season, and despite their overall struggles, means they have beaten both of the top two at home this season having already beaten Newcastle.in December

Despite playing most of the game against 10 men, Mansfield could not force victory at Cheltenham. Kyle Storer was sent off on 18 minutes after a dreadful challenge on Jamie McGuire that got a deserved straight red card. Liam Davis hit the post direct from a corner for Cheltenham, while Ben Whiteman had tow excellent chances for Mansfield, both of which were put wide. Neither side had a shot on target and Mansfield have played out two 0-0 draws in a week. This will be considered two points dropped, and they are two points off the play off places.

The Komora took over himself getting his first two goals for the club before half time to give Orient a 3-0 lead at the break. Orient got a penalty on 64 minutes which Komora dispatched to complete his hat trick.

Tranmere equalised on 55 minutes through a long range effort from jamie Harris but Chester regained the lead when Ryan Astles head home Ryan Lloyd’s corner. Evan Horwood leveled again with nine minutes left with a header from a Liam Ridehalgh cross.

It set the scene for a late winner for top scorer Andy Cook, who got the winner and his 18th of the season with a strike from just outside the box.

A poor display from the Doonhammer’s that sums up the inconsistency that means they will likely fall short of a play off place despite undoubted talent.

Moon Of Liberty Polling – February Polling Update

WAP

February Polling round up – Conservatives continue to dominate

Only Survation of the regularly reporting pollsters did not report in February and we had our first poll from Communicate Research this year. On Voting Intention every poll saw the Conservatives in a double digit lead ranging from 11% with Ipsos-Mori to 18% with YouGov and ICM. All pollsters have the Conservatives on 40% or more and Labour in the twenties, showing a stronger position for Theresa May and a weaker position for Jeremy Corbyn.

The lower lead from Ipsos-Mro fed into the seat projection, only they saw the projected Tory majority just short of three figures, all the others suggest the Conservative are on course for 350 seats or more on the new boundaries, thus ensuring a majority of 100 plus. ICM’s projected majority of 176 is a new record high projection, their projection of Labour on 141 seats is also a record low since I have been doing calculations on the new boundaries.

Labour’s position is particularly bad in the North West where swings to the Tories were consistently at 10% plus.The polling provides little solace anywhere except in London where they continue to be less hit than elsewhere. The SNP remain dominant in Scotland although on average they are now below 50% and the scope for the Tories to gain some seats in Scotland is certainly there. Labour are now consistently in third place behind the Tories on the Scottish breakdowns.

For the Lib Dems there continues to be little sign of their local election improvement showing up in national polls, although they have edged up into double figures in most cases. Ipsos-Mori offers them some hope giving them 14 seats on the new boundaries. The new boundaries will make their position more difficult, with strong targeting a result of around 20 seats, while by recent standards where pre-2015 they could get 50 plus, would actually be a very good result given the nature of the new boundaries. UKIP remain ahead of the Lib Dems on vote share, but there is little sign of them making any seat breakthroughs, which was backed up by the Stoke result last week.

The Conservatives average lead over is up from 12.8% in January to 14%. The average seat projection sees the Tory majority projection up to a record high of 136. Labour fall below 160 on 157. All the current numbers can be found here. A round up of this months polls is below.

2nd Feb Local by elections round up

After last weeks loss in Copeland at Parliamentary level Labour suffered arguably an even more embarrassing loss in this weeks local by elections. Labour are using the high Jewish population in Kersal as the reason for their loss of a seat in traditional Labour heartland of Salford, however to lose a seat in such an area in opposition is a outstanding victory for the Conservatives on any level.

Elsewhere the Tories held their other two seats, one in Christchurch where they saw off a strong independent challenge, and in Hutton on Redcar & Cleveland council where the numbers looked ripe for another Lib Dem surge, but it did not materialise with both the Tory and Lib Dem vote up by a similar amount. There was a second by election in Redcar & Cleveland where the Lib Dems easily held Newcomon with a strong swing against Labour.

In short it was an excellent night for the Tories, a decent night for the Lib Dems and a very poor night for Labour, whose vote share was down everywhere on top of the loss of the Salford seat, and also the UKIP whose poor run of performances continue to where their local by election projected national share is down to just 7%

The results see the Conservatives increase their local by election projected share lead over Labour to 5.8% All the current polling and election numbers can be found here. All this weeks results are below.
