parties have managed to arrive at a solution While residents have promised to clear a 25-acre area the civic body will not demolish any more hutments and will construct basic amenities for the

illegal hutments The BMC then decided to raze around 1000 hutments in the area and had demolished around 470 when the residents refused to let the bulldozers proceed further Share This Article Related Article After several discussions with the residents and activists like Medha Patkar of the Ghar Bachao Ghar Banao Andolan the M-East ward officials have promised to stop demolition if residents clear

Published: March 5 2017 11:30 am Keith Thurman has 22 knockouts in 28 fights all wins (Source: AP) Top News Sometimes even for a knockout artist defense is the best option Keith Thurman went that route Saturday night building a big lead over Danny Garcia and holding on to add the WBC welterweight title to his WBA championship Yes Thurman has 22 knockouts in 28 fights all wins He won this unification bout though by getting tactical and going somewhat conservative “I was not giving the fight away” he said “I felt like we had a nice lead we could cool down I felt like we were controlling the 3-minute intervals in each and every round” Thurman handed Garcia his first loss in 34 bouts “I thought I pushed the fight like a true champion and did enough to get the victory” Garcia said After five furious rounds to open things at Barclays Center the pace slowed _ even bringing boos from the large crowd at times But it ended with a flourish of exchanges in the 12th and final round And with Thurman holding up two belts “I thought I outboxed him I thought it was a clear victory” Thurman said “But Danny he came to fight” Thurman won a split decision getting scores of 116-112 and 115-113 Garcia favored by a majority of the fans who loudly derided the announcement of the winner won one card 115-113 The AP scored it 115-113 for Thurman “I knew with a wide spread it had to go to me when I heard” Thurman said about the decision Using powerful rights including straight leads that stopped Garcia in his tracks Thurman dominated early Garcia landed the occasional bomb particularly one shot to the body that had Thurman grimacing at the end of the 10th “There might have been one left hook to the body that he landed that I felt” Thurman admitted “But we know how to endure these punches This isn’t just about outboxing an opponent you have to take a punch too” Garcia came on from there but it was too late “It was a tough fight” he said “I thought I came back strong I can’t cry over anything I’ll come back strong like a true champion I would love to have a rematch to get my titles back” Thurman won a terrific bout with Shawn Porter at Barclays last June This one wasn’t of such high quality throughout but it had its moments Both fighters opened up without reservation each missing several haymakers but also landing solid punches Thurman’s right leads were particularly effective while Garcia whose right eye was getting red by the fourth round used his right hand to keep Thurman off-balance With each fighter capable of landing the one punch to end it the crowd of 16533 roared with every shot _ until the sixth when both guys got cautious Despite all the previous action the fans booed what clearly was the worst round of the bout It was nearly impossible to live up to the fury of the first five rounds anyway and only occasionally the rest of the way did the fight do so But Thurman strategically was being smart “We knew we had the fight won” trainer Dan Birmingham said “Keith was still scoring while he was backing up _ sticking and moving” Garcia 1465 pounds of Philadelphia actually landed a higher percentage of his punches 30 percent to 26 percent for Thurman 1462 of Clearwater Florida But Thurman was far more active attempting 570 punches 136 more than Garcia The bout wasn’t very reminiscent of the classic 1981 welterweight unification fight between Sugar Ray Leonard who announced this one from ringside for CBS and Thomas Hearns Leonard said this week he believed it could reach that level but only early on and very late was that close to
