The imminent return of captain Phil Jagielka has persuaded Everton manager Roberto Martinez that he does not have to bring in cover for Tyias Browning in January after the youngster was ruled out for the remainder of the season. “We always look at how the squad is in every window but if you are going to have three injuries in your goalkeeping positions you are not going to keep four goalkeepers just in case,” he told the Liverpool Echo. “I think we need to be realistic. Our squad is big enough, our squad is strong and we have a great balance of experience and talent. “We are going to have Tyias Browning out for the season but we are going to get Phil Jagielka back very, very soon and we have got Bryan Oviedo to come back as well so the players are at the football club. “On the plus side is that we have performed really well having five first-team defenders out of the line-up. “It is a real sign of the development of the young players here and I wouldn’t bring players here just for the sake of it.” Press Association Browning, who has made six first-team appearances this campaign as cover for Seamus Coleman at right-back, underwent surgery on a knee injury earlier this month. Martinez revealed the 21-year-old will be out until the summer but with Jagielka, sidelined since the end of October with a knee problem of his own, due to make his comeback in the next couple of weeks and Bryan Oviedo edging closer to fitness after a hamstring injury, the manager feels his side can cope even though they only have two senior centre-backs in John Stones and Ramiro Funes Mori.

Ninvalle complains to GOA about boxer’s lackadaisical attitudeSTEVE Ninvalle, president of Guyana Boxing Association (GBA), has written to the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA), recommending that they “put on hold” the country’s leading amateur fighter Keevin Allicock’s trip to Cuba to prepare him for the Pan Am Games. “Upon careful investigation it was uncovered that Mr Allicock has been delinquent in regards to attending training sessions locally and his attitude towards the task at hand is nothing short of lackadaisical,” Ninvalle wrote in a letter penned to GOA boss Juman Yassin on May 26.According to Ninvalle, from May 1 to 23, Allicock attended just 12 of 30 training sessions held by Cuban coach Francisco Roldan, despite the pleadings from several persons.“Less than 50 percent attendance at training leading up to any competition is unacceptable – barring illness. Our conclusion is that if Mr Allicock is unconcerned about his training in Guyana and treats it as unimportant then it is only logical that the same will happen in Cuba,” Ninvalle reasoned.Ninvalle reminded Yassin of a force meeting between GBA and GOA regarding Allicock’s apathetic attitude, with even award-winning boxing coach Sebert Black making a complaint and Cuban coach Francisco Roldan supporting.“We (GBA) had then warned the Caribbean bantamweight champion that his attitude towards training needed to drastically improve. This has not happened and his attendance has gotten worse. In fact, Mr Allicock failed to even attend a medical examination provided by the GOA and offered the excuse of “not feeling well” as the reason for his absence,” Ninvalle wrote.“All of this comes against the backdrop of Mr Allicock coming in at over six pounds over the bantamweight limit for his last fight in Guyana. On Saturday, May 25, 2019 at another meeting chaired by you (Yassin), Mr Allicock could offer no reason for his absence from training.Being concerned about his approach to training and preparation for such an important international engagement, GBA recommends to you that his imminent trip to Cuba be put on hold. We also recommend that GOA immediately put on hold all stipends paid to Mr Allicock until the GBA signals that there has been an improvement in his attitude towards training.”

“Everybody keeps saying this is going to be Fight of the Year and everybody was saying the same thing with Ortega — that this guy was going to be my equal — and I like proving people wrong,” said Holloway. “I like going out there and making people scratch their head like, ‘What did I just watch?’ and that’s the plan.“Dustin is a tough opponent, a worthy opponent, for sure, and, like you said, go look at his track record — it speaks for itself. Look at my track record — it speaks for itself. I can’t wait.“I’m going to show everybody why I’m the best and make my claim for being the pound-for-pound No. 1,” he added. “Christmas is coming super-early. This is amazing. Enjoy this opportunity and make sure you tune in; it’s going to be a fun one.” MORE: Join DAZN and watch Chael Sonnen vs. Lyoto Machida in Bellator 222 on June 14Last year was supposed to be the year where the 27-year-old titleholder cleaned out the division and furthered his case for being one of the top pound-for-pound talents in the sport. After orchestrating back-to-back masterpieces against Aldo, everything was lined up for Holloway to take out the last remaining contenders queued up in the featherweight ranks and perhaps start angling for an opportunity to move up in weight and challenge for a second championship belt.His year was supposed to begin in March with a showdown against Frankie Edgar, the perennial contender and former lightweight champion whom he was initially supposed to face back in December, before “The Answer” got hurt and was replaced by Aldo. This time, however, it was Holloway who was forced to withdraw due to injury, opening the door for Brian Ortega to step up, snuff out Edgar and establish himself as a credible threat to Holloway’s standing as champion.Two months after backing out of his fight with Edgar, Holloway was tabbed as a late replacement for Tony Ferguson in a lightweight championship bout against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223, presenting him with the opportunity to join Conor McGregor as only the second fighter in UFC history to hold titles in two divisions simultaneously.But it wasn’t meant to be.On the day of the weigh-ins, Holloway was scratched from the main event pairing by the New York State Athletic Commission and subsequently replaced by Al Iaquinta. It was a tough pill for the talented fighter from Waianae to swallow and another blow to one of the most cursed and chaotic fight cards the UFC has ever put together.Missing out on the opportunity to face Nurmagomedov in April meant that Holloway was available to compete in July and his showdown with Ortega was positioned as the co-main event of UFC 226 in Las Vegas. The highly anticipated featherweight title clash would serve as the appetizer for the “Champion vs. Champion” showdown between heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic and light heavyweight kingpin Daniel Cormier, giving the promotion’s annual International Fight Week pay-per-view a potent one-two punch to close out the show.But in the days leading up to the event, something seemed off with Holloway.The usually jovial and talkative and playful champion was laconic and lacking his usual energy. In a live interview with Kenny Florian and Michael Bisping on UFC Tonight, the former middleweight champion Bisping mentioned that Holloway looked like he just woke up and questioned whether he was feeling alright as they worked their way through a far more challenging back and forth than anyone could have anticipated.That night, Holloway was pulled from the fight with Ortega due to “concussion-like symptoms,” kicking off a dark stretch for the usually vibrant featherweight champion.Even after his bout with Ortega was rescheduled and announced as the main event for the UFC’s return to Toronto in December, questions about Holloway’s physical and mental health lingered. Additionally, the collection of cancellations, coupled with his health issues and Ortega’s blistering finish of Edgar left many forecasting that the unbeaten challenger would be the man to halt Holloway’s extended run of success and force the Hawaiian from the featherweight throne.While Holloway and his team have never offered up a full explanation regarding the health issues that forced his removal from the fight in July, his performance in the cage at UFC 231 made it abundantly clear that “Blessed” is indeed best.More: Everything you need to know about UFC 236“I tell people all the time, ‘It’s not how you start the race, it’s how you finish and you’ve got to finish strong and keep pushing,’” said Holloway, reflecting on his bout with Ortega while speaking with Sporting News late last week. “I knew what I was capable of and a lot of people were questioning, but I’ve been the underdog my whole damn life, so it didn’t change anything.“I was going to go out there to show the world, do my thing and I did,” continued the reigning featherweight champion, who dominated Ortega from the outset and walked away with a fourth-round stoppage victory to extend his winning streak to a baker’s dozen. “I felt great. I had an amazing performance.“A lot of people were saying that this guy was my equal — that he was going to be the guy (to beat me) — and it was great to beat that guy. It was fun.”As great as his performance inside the Octagon was — and it was breathtaking — part of what made the December 8 scrap at Scotiabank Arena so meaningful for Holloway was that there was a point earlier in the year where he too wondered if it would come to pass.After everything transpired in July, Holloway fell into a depressive state, shaken by the mysterious health issues that forced the bout with Ortega to be scrapped and unsure if he was ever going to be able to return to the cage.“You feel like you’re put on this Earth for something and mine was fighting,” explained Holloway. “I think I was put on this Earth to fight and that was getting taken away from me. Not knowing if I was ever going to fight again was very scary and I went through a real rough patch.“I’m thankful for ‘Mini Blessed’ — ‘Rushie-Boo-Boo’ — for being there,” he continued, shouting out his son and ever-present sidekick, Rush. “I’m thankful for my family, my friends, my coaches, my fans and even you guys (in the media) because some of you guys reached out and really cared about my health.“It’s a very real thing and if you’re going through something tough, make sure you bless yourself and get yourself to a point where you can talk to someone and don’t be scared to talk to someone. Don’t be scared of reaching out and asking for help because it’s a dark place and I don’t wish it upon anybody.”Back feeling like himself and riding the momentum of his masterful performance against Ortega, Holloway gets another opportunity to add more championship hardware to his mantle this weekend when he squares off with Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC 236, with the winner walking away as the interim lightweight champion.Much like his scuttled clash with Nurmagomedov a year earlier, Saturday’s showdown with Poirier at State Farm Arena in Atlanta wasn’t something Holloway was actively pursuing. In fact, it wasn’t even the first fight that was offered to him.After a difficult year and a dominant effort against Ortega, the surging superstar was focused on handling some “outside of the cage” business in the first half of this year and envisioned returning to action to defend his featherweight title on a major card later in the year.Then the UFC reached out about a fight with Tony Ferguson, the snake-bitten top contender in the lightweight division whom he had initially agreed to replace opposite Nurmagomedov back in April. Ferguson had run his winning streak to 11 in December with a stoppage win over Anthony Pettis and with the Dagestani champion sidelined until the fall, the promotion looked into putting together an interim title fight between the two streaking standouts.Holloway ran the idea past his team, all of whom liked the idea, and he agreed to the matchup.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a year“Then we get a contract with Dustin Poirier’s name on it and I was kind of blown away,” he said with a laugh. “I was like, ‘It says everything else it’s supposed to say; it just doesn’t say Tony Ferguson’s name. I’m going to sign this, send it back and if they put the wrong name, they put the wrong name and they can send me a new (contract),’ but it ended up being Dustin and it’s cool.”As much as the opportunity to face Ferguson intrigued him, the chance to stand across the cage from Poirier this weekend was even more appealing as the two have a history together inside the cage.This weekend’s main event combatants shared the cage seven years ago, with Holloway stepping in as a short notice replacement for Ricardo Lamas (who was replacing Erik Koch) in a preliminary card matchup against Poirier at UFC 143.He was just a few weeks removed from turning 20 and carried a 4-0 record into the Octagon. By comparison, the 23-year-old Poirier was a seasoned veteran, entering on a four-fight winning streak and brandishing an 11-1 record overall.Though he had some positive moments, Holloway eventually got taken down, mounted and forced to tap out to a mounted triangle choke-armbar combination with just over a minute remaining in the opening round.Watching the fight back, you can see the framework for the fighters they would both become throughout their exchanges, but neither man was anything close to the well-rounded, polished professionals who will collide in this weekend’s main event. “It was just a surprise,” he said of the opportunity to run it back with Poirier. “I’m competitive and I want to compete and he’s one of those guys that if I can get it back, I want to get it back. If I couldn’t, it is what it is, but now we’re here and I get that shot. Not many people get the opportunity to get one back and here’s my first opportunity and I can’t wait.“It’s two different fighters,” said Holloway, reflecting on the younger version of himself that shared the Octagon with Poirier the first time. “That Max Holloway, 20-year-old Max Holloway — I would body-bag him. I would put him in a cemetery in Waianae somewhere. That’s what I would do to him.“Dustin grew, I grew, and there is nothing you can take away from that fight,” he continued. “You can’t watch that fight and be serious with yourself, like, ‘Oh yeah, I did that.’ It was a long time ago and if you feel some type of way watching that fight, that’s cool, but we’re going to find out on Saturday (that we’re not the same people).”For Holloway, this is much more than just an opportunity to avenge one of the three defeats that sit on his record; it’s about furthering the legacy he has been steadily building over course of his five-year unbeaten run to the top of the featherweight division.It’s about proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that “Blessed is Best.” Max Holloway went 371 days between cementing his place atop the featherweight division with a second straight third-round stoppage win over Jose Aldo and successfully defending his title against Brian Ortega in the main event of UFC 231.Within those 53 weeks, the Hawaiian champion experienced some of the most difficult moments of his professional career.
