    There was widespread disbelief when the fight was stopped with George Groves ahead on all three judges' cards - although, to much surprise, only by a single point on two of them.

    Our game plan, our confidence and motivation was affected after we suffered a goal in 13 seconds. It is a bad moment. We have to be ashamed of the result.

  • [tottenham]UNDER PRESSURE
    If the bookies are right, Spurs have virtually no chance of winning the title and are looking likely to miss out on a Champions League place too. Sky Bet make Tottenham 66/1 to win the Premier League and just 3/1 sixth favourites to finish in the top four. AVB is now joint second favourite at 8/1 to be the next Premier League manager to go. Fulham's Martin Jol is the hot 1/3 favourite.

  • [cricket]SLEDGING 
    The issue of sledging in cricket has raised its head again following the first Ashes Test in Brisbane. Michael Clarke has been fined for comments he made to Jimmy Anderson during the game. ECB umpires manager Chris Kelly had this to say on Sky Sports News...

    You have to draw the distinction between banter and what you deem to be unfair. If umpires hear something they feel is obscene or it is insensitive comments, they can take action straight away.

    The umpires have not done anything wrong as far as I'm aware. They reacted to something that happened and the onus should be on the teams involved to make sure they don't overstep the line.
