Jorge Linares goes distance to claim Anthony Crolla’s WBA lightweight title

• Venezuelan challenger wins unanimous points decision in Manchester
• Crolla fails to build on impressive opening round in defeat on home turf

Anthony “Million Dollar” Crolla failed to offer up a display to match his moniker as the Manchester fighter lost his WBA lightweight title to Jorge Linares, the 31-year-old Venezuelan, whose triumph gave him a fourth world crown across three different divisions, nine years after his first.

After an intriguing contest which went the distance, the score was a unanimous verdict of 115-114, 117-111, 115-113 to Linares. It felt the right result and margin of victory as Crolla won barely three rounds of the 12.

Love hit for saying U.S. Ryder side ‘best golf team maybe ever’

PGA: The Players Championship - First Round(Reuters) – Victorious 2014 European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley wonders whether Davis Love’s comment that the current United States side “is the best golf team maybe ever assembled” might come back to haunt the U.S. captain. “This is the best golf team maybe ever assembled. If we just go play our game … ignore the noise, work hard, do your job, everything else will take care of itself.” Never mind that Love’s comments are not supported by facts, McGinley thinks they hardly help the American cause as the hosts seek to avoid losing for the ninth time in the past 11 meetings.

Bradley Wiggins tells Andrew Marr ‘I did not seek an unfair advantage’

• Under-fire cyclist to appear on BBC1 on Sunday in prerecorded interview
• Bradley Wiggins’s move follows criticism from doctor with his former team

Sir Bradley Wiggins has broken his silence surrounding the use of powerful banned substances taken with permission for medical reasons before some of his biggest races, insisting that he never sought to gain an unfair advantage.

The under-fire Wiggins, the first Briton to win the Tour de France, was one of dozens of athletes who had their anti-doping records leaked by the hacking group Fancy Bears, believed to be linked to Russia and seeking revenge for the revelations on state-sponsored doping in that country. In an interview to be broadcast on Sunday’s Andrew Marr Show on BBC1, Wiggins denied seeking an unfair advantage and insisted that he was suffering from breathing issues in the run-up to his Tour de France triumph in 2012 that required treatment.
