FRANKFURT - Vitali Klitschko is leaving boxing to concentrate on Ukrainian politics and his role as an opposition leader, and that should give Canadian Bermane Stiverne a shot at becoming a world heavyweight champion. Klitschko vacated his WBC heavyweight title on Monday and said he doesnt expect to fight again as he pursues a presidential bid in his home country, where citizens have been protesting for weeks in Kyiv over President Viktor Yanukovychs decision to shun closer ties with the European Union and push his country toward Russia. The World Boxing Council proclaimed Klitschko a "Champion Emeritus," a move that would allow him to challenge the new champion directly should he wish to resume his career. "This offer makes it theoretically possible to return to the ring, which I cannot imagine at all happening as things stand now," Klitschko said in a statement. "I am now concentrating on the politics in Ukraine, I feel people need me there." Stiverne (23-1-1), a Haitian-born Montrealer based in Las Vegas, is the WBCs top-ranked contender and has been waiting for Klitschko to make a decision on his future. It is expected that Stiverne will face No. 2-ranked American Chris Arreola for the title. On April 27, Stiverne scored a convincing unanimous decision over Arreola in Ontario, Calif. to win the WBC Silver belt, an unofficial interim title. Stivernes Montreal-based manager Camille Estaphan hopes to meet with WBC officials Tuesday in Los Angeles to confirm a title bout between his fighter and Arreola, which he hopes will take place in March or April. Estaphan said Klitschkos retirement may also help Stiverne financially. "If we had fought Klitschko, the champion would get 70 per cent of the purse, while now, that will be in our favour," said Estaphan. "Were hoping theres a little present under the tree for us just before Christmas." Klitschko is a lawmaker and chairman of the opposition party Udar (Punch) and intends to run for president in 2015. Klitschko has taken an active part in the rallies, urging his countrymen to continue their fight to turn the ex-Soviet republic into a genuine Western democracy. "This is not a revolution. It is a peaceful protest that demands justice," Klitschko told The Associated Press in an interview earlier this month. "The people are not defending political interests. They are defending the idea of living in a civilized country." The 42-year-old Klitschko has a 45-2 record, with 41 KOs. His younger brother Wladimir holds the other significant heavyweight belts. "My brother Wladimir will be responsible for further sporting successes," the older Klitschko said Monday. Vitali has not fought since September 2012, when he made the 10th defence of his belt with a fourth-round stoppage of previously unbeaten Manuel Charr. "With the current extreme and delicate political situation in Ukraine, Vitali has answered his countrys call to fight for human rights and equality. Accordingly, Vitali will not be able to provide the WBC with a predictable time-frame to return to the ring," the WBC said. "In other words, under his new distinction (Champion Emeritus), Klitschko will, in essence, retire with the option of being able to return to the ring at any time and be eligible to fight for the title against the reigning belt holder." The WBC said it will soon determine the top two fighters to participate in an eliminator bout that will yield the successor to Klitschkos vacant title. ___ With files from Canadian Press reporter Marc Tougas in Montreal and AP writer Maria Danilova in Kyiv. <a href="http://www.authenticsteelersteamshop.com/Antonio-Brown-Steelers-Jersey">Antonio Brown Steelers Jersey</a>.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Oakland Athletics can win a lot of different ways, as evidenced by their two-year hold on the AL West division title. Yoenis Cespedes proved he can play through a hurting right heel, giving Scott Kazmir and the As a spark with a pair of RBIs that helped spoil the Minnesota Twins home opener with an 8-3 victory on Monday. "When were swinging well, we feel like we have a deep lineup," As manager Bob Melvin said. Cespedes has been hobbling around the last few days with the injury, but the team wasnt worried enough about it to hold him out. The Cuban slugger followed a leadoff walk to Brandon Moss by crushing a double in the second inning for the first run against Kevin Correia (0-1) and hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh. Moss added a two-run single in the third and Derek Norris homered in the sixth. "Everyone knows their strengths and they dont go outside of their game, and I think thats what makes us a great overall ballclub and very deadly down the stretch of the whole season," Norris said. Jed Lowrie hit what the As believed was a home run down the right-field line in the third inning, but the call on the field was a foul ball and the umpire-initiated review, which lasted more than four minutes, upheld the ruling. Lowrie took a walk instead and later scored. Kazmir (2-0), who stymied with Twins in five starts against them last season for Cleveland, completed six innings with six hits, three runs and four walks allowed. He struck out five, and RBI doubles by Aaron Hicks and Jason Kubel were the only damaging hits against him. This wasnt his best, but Kazmir got enough quick outs to stay in there. "Not very efficient with my pitches, but theres going to be days like that so I need to be able to battle. To get six out of that, thats something you can build on," he said. The 30-year-old Kazmir dazzled in his As debut with 7 1-3 scoreless innings last week against his old team, the Indians. He did the same against the Twins in 2013, going 3-0 with a 1.45 ERA in 31 innings with 36 strikeouts. WWith Jarrod Parker, a 12-game winner last year, out for the season following elbow ligament replacement surgery and A.ddddddddddddJ. Griffin not yet ready because of a spring arm injury, the rotation took a hit. Kazmir, then, is that much more valuable. Oh, and so is the lineup. "All the way through, guys are taking quality at-bats and really working the starting pitcher early in the game. That goes a long way as far as getting the win," Kazmir said. Correia came out with two outs in the sixth. He yielded nine hits, six runs and two walks while striking out three. "He started pounding inside a bit better and his last couple innings were better because of that," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "But you cant just stay out and over the plate on these guys." Alberto Callaspo and Josh Reddick also drove in runs for the As, who played without centre fielder Coco Crisp because of a sore left wrist. Norris, Callaspo and Josh Donaldson each had two hits. "I just threw a couple bad pitches in situations where I had a chance to get out of a jam," Correia said. "Thats what Ive been able to do the last couple years." NOTES: Lowrie was hit by a pitch on the lower right leg in the seventh inning and was in too much pain to stay in the game. Nick Punto, who played seven seasons for the Twins, entered as a pinch runner and eventually scored on a balk by Sam Deduno. ... The Athletics made a bullpen shuffle before the game, reinstating RH Ryan Cook from the disabled list and sending RH Evan Scribner to Triple-A Sacramento. Cook, who was out with shoulder tendinitis, struck out two in a hitless ninth. ... Attendance was announced at 35,837, more than 3,000 below official capacity. .... The Twins had left fielder Josh Willingham (left wrist) and right fielder Oswaldo Arcia (right wrist) both out of the lineup. ... The three-game series resumes on Wednesday afternoon, with RH Jesse Chavez (0-0, 1.50 ERA) pitching for the As against Twins RH Phil Hughes (0-0, 7.20 ERA). ' ' '

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Kevin Durant and Oklahoma City had an answer for every challenge from the Chicago Bulls. It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. Oklahoma City led by 15 in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, but the Bulls pulled within seven on D.J. Augustins 3-pointer with 8:50 to go. Oklahoma City then outscored Chicago 16-4 over a late 5 1/2-minute stretch to pull away. "I thought our defence was good the whole game," Durant said after topping 30 points for the 13th time this season. "They slowed us down a little bit with their free throws, but I thought we just played through it in the second half. We were able to come out and speed it up a little bit, get some turnovers and get some easy points." Russell Westbrook had 20 points and 10 assists, and reserve Reggie Jackson added 18 to help the Thunder improve to 13-0 at Chesapeake Arena. Oklahoma City is the only NBA team with a perfect home record. "If we move the ball like that with the guys we have that create for everybody, create for themselves, it makes it tough on other teams," Durant said. Joakim Noah had 23 points and 12 rebounds for the banged-up Bulls, who have lost four straight and seven of eight. Taj Gibson scored 16 points and Augustin added 15. Chicago played without Kirk Hinrich (back tightness) and Luol Deng (sore Achilles), and Jimmy Butler left during the game with a right ankle injury. "I thought we still had a shot in the second half," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "I thought we were within striking distance, but we couldnt get the key stops when we needed them. ... Youve got to give them credit." Oklahoma City led by 14 in the first half, but their advantage was cut to three at the break, prompting a strong response from the Thunder in the third quarter. They used a 13-4 run to go up 68-56 with 7:52 to go in the period. Westbrooks layup increased the advantage to 13 about 1 1/2 minutes later, and then he had a layup and Durant made a jumper to make it 79-64 with 3:25 left in the third. Jacksons 3 in the final minute put Oklahoma City up 84-72 heading to the fourth, and Nick Collison opened the final quarter with three-point play. The Bulls put together another spurt to close to 89-82 on Augustins 3, but that was as close as it would get. "We were just trying to shut down the paint," Jackson said. "That was our main focus at halftime and I think we did a good job of locking in, getting some stops, and getting out on the break. ... Theyre physical. They play really well defensively, especially half-court sets. Right now theyre a little depleted, people are banged up, beat up." Jeremy Lambs dunk with 7:44 left made it 93-82, pumping up the home crowd. Durant made a 3-pointer and Westbrooks two free throws with 3:06 to go extended the lead to 105-86. "I think our defence just hasnt been there to help us out," Gibson said. "We are normally a great defensive team. We just got to get guys more reps, especially now that we lost Jimmy with the ankle." Jackson made six of the Thunders seven baskets in a 6:13 stretch bridging the first two quarters. Lambs steal and fast-break dunk with 9:21 left in the second interrupted Jacksons streak at four consecutive baskets. Jacksons jumper about a minute later gave Oklahoma City a 41-27 lead. Chicago battled back, and Mike Dunleavy hit two 3s in the final minute to get the Bulls within 55-52 at halftime. NOTES: Durant was whistled for a technical foul with 2:25 left in the first quarter for arguing following his second personal foul. ... Led by Jackson and Lamb, Thunder reserves came in averaging 33.6 points per game, the franchises highest since moving to Oklahoma City. ... Deng missed four games earlier this month due to a strained left calf. The Bulls are now 1-4 in his absence. ... About 45 minutes after the game, Thabo Sefolosha brought Noah to the Thunder locker room with the media still present, but the Bulls star was chased out by Oklahoma Citys Kendrick Perkins. <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysnfl.us.com/">cheap jerseys</a>.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats introduced Cortez as their new head coach and director of football operations Tuesday, three days after a giddy Young tweeted the appointment. The CFL club also formally unveiled quarterback Henry Burris, acquired last week from Calgary, and announced the promotion of Bob OBillovich -- the architect of both moves -- to vice-present of football operations following four years as the clubs general manager. Cortezs arrival in Hamilton is a reunion of sorts, having worked previously in Calgary with both Burris and OBillovich. But Cortez said it was his conversation with Young that helped convince him to leave the NFLs Buffalo Bills -- where he had been the clubs quarterbacks coach the past two season -- and assume his first CFL head-coaching position. "When I sat down and talked with Bob Young, he talked about one thing: Winning multiple Grey Cups," Cortez said. "Thats important because Ive talked to management people or ownership people where theyve talked about the perfect storm is hosting a first-round playoff game and losing because thats where you make the most money. "Thats not what its all about: Its all about winning games and winning championships. Bob is passionate about the Tiger-Cats and the city of Hamilton and it rubs off on you when you talk to him." Cortez, a 60-year-old Texan, is no stranger to winning in the CFL. He has been part of four Grey Cup-winning coaching staffs over his 18 seasons in Canada -- spent with Montreal, Ottawa, Saskatchewan and Calgary. He also coached in the NCAA -- most notably tutoring current Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers at Cal -- and most recently in the NFL with Buffalo. It was during his time as Calgarys quarterbacks coach and-or offensive co-ordinator that Cortez developed a reputation as an offensive guru with a flair for developing quarterbacks. He won Grey Cups with Doug Flutie (1992) and Burris (2008) under centre and is credited with helping tutor Jeff Garcia and Dave Dickenson (CFLs outstanding player in 2000). Whats more, all four went on to spend time in the NFL as well. This season, Cortez helped Buffalos Ryan Fitzpatrick catapult the Bills to a great 5-2 start that secured the quarterback a lucrative long-term contract. But Fitzpatrick and the Bills (6-10) cooled off substantially down the stretch to miss the NFL playoffs. Cortez takes over a Hamilton squad that struggled establishing consistency last season, posting an 8-10 record to finish third in the East Division. The Ticats upset defending Grey Cup-champion Montreal 52-44 in overtime in the conference semifinal before losing 19-3 to Winnipeg in the division final. Hamilton hasnt won the Grey Cup since 99 when it downed Calgary -- with Cortez as its offensive co-ordinator -- 32-21 at Vancouvers B.C. Place. Cortez expects to handle the offensive co-ordinators job in Hamilton this season and says Burriss familiarity with his approach and schemes should make for a quicker, easier transition. "For me, one of the key things is he understands what were trying to accomplish on offence," Cortez said. &quuot;We have a familiarity about what were trying to accomplish and he has the tools to get things done.dddddddddddd "He has a very live arm and can make things happen when plays go bad." The six-foot-two, 219-pound Burris was the MVP of Calgarys 2008 Grey Cup win over Montreal and in 2010 was named the CFLs outstanding player. He spent a total of nine seasons with the Stampeders and is the clubs all-time leader in passing yards (32,171), touchdowns (233) and completions (2,167). But Burris, who turns 37 in June, lost his starting job late last season to backup Drew Tate and was deemed expendable after Tate signed a long-term extension this off-season. And while Burris is entering his 13th CFL season, he says hes far from finished. "I have plenty left," he said. "It was tough to have to leave Calgary . . . we achieved a lot of success there in terms of winning championships and really building that organization up and making it a perennial powerhouse. "But its one of those things that happen in sports and theres no hard feelings . . . now its a time for change and for me and my family its a great change of scenery." Made that much better with Cortez in charge. "That makes the situation much easier with the transition," Burris said. "Knowing the guy who taught me this game is going to be on my side again was one of the most ultimate feelings I could experience at this stage in my career. "I couldnt ask for a better situation." Burris said Cortezs keen eye and attention to detail are two key reasons for his success. "He always threw a lot of good questions at me to challenge me and will continue to do the same thing to make me a better player," Burris said. "He leaves no stone unturned, hes that type of guy and when you have someone that detailed thats all you can ask for. "But hes going to challenge each and every guy on this team and thats the part I love about him because the talent is definitely here . . . hes going to challenge us and make us a lot better and thats why to me he was the best guy for the job. Im looking forward to getting back together and Im pretty sure the rest of the guys are going to enjoy being with him when the season gets going." Its been a whirlwind off-season in the CFL with four teams hiring new head coaches and both Hamilton and Toronto making big deals for quarterbacks -- the Argonauts acquiring Ricky Ray from Edmonton. But OBillovich was criticized in some circles for taking so long to hire a coach while other clubs moved quicker to make their appointments. However, he said with Hamilton being able to land both Burris and Cortez, it was definitely worth the wait. "Im excited about the attributes George brings to the table . . . hes going to be a decisive guy when it comes to making the tough decisions," OBillovich said. "Being able to make the trade to get Henry before we got George, I think that made for an even better situation. "Theres familiarity here, theres a lot of wins and a lot of Grey Cups here. Im hopeful this is going to get us over the hump and were going to start winning football games on a regular basis this season." ' ' '
