Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula & Welcome to Season 08 Episode 60 of Breakfast Bites the FIJI & PACIFIC SPORTS NEWS PODCAST, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika people’s sports news, on a sunny and bright Monday morning 04 March 2024.

Coming to you with tons of hanisi from the 180th meridian, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. 

In rugby union

At the Los Angeles 7s today, Spain reached their first ever Men’s semi-final with a comeback win over Fiji 19-21 to join an all European Men’s semi-finals line-up of France vs Ireland and Spain vs Great Britain.

The Women’s quarter-finals sees France vs Canada, New Zealand vs Ireland, USA vs South Africa, Australia vs Brazil.

In the NBA

LeBron James has added another first to his illustrious career, after bringing up 40,000 career points in the NBA.

He reached the figure in a 114-124 loss to the Denver Nuggets yesterday afternoon, having entered the game needing just nine points to become the first player to achieve the feat.

James had already surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s previous all-time NBA scoring record of 38,387 points against the Thunder last year.



In SportsBiz

“You look at examples like the Jordan brand; I’m trying to build my version of that,” Steph Curry said in an interview with Bloomberg, on his ongoing efforts to elevate the Under Armour brand to a level that resonates with sneakerheads like Michael Jordan, Ja Morant and LaMelo Ball, all of whose shoes currently outsell Curry’s.

The Warriors’ star agreed to a contract extension with Under Armour last March that included US$75Million in stock.

While Under Armour doesn’t provide specific numbers, Bloomberg estimated the Curry brand generated up to US$250M in annual sales of Under Armour’s annual US$1.5Billion footwear segment revenue last year, still trailing Nike and Adidas.

In combat sports

YouTuber & fake boxer Jake Paul got a haircut on Saturday night in Puerto Rico that ended up costing him US$1.5Million.

That’s how much his MVP Promotions company had to refund fans after hair treatment caused MVP’s star women’s boxing champion, Amanda Serrano to pull out of her main event fight on Saturday night, after chemicals from her hair procedure leaked into her eyes, burning her cornea so badly doctors refused to let her fight Nina Meinke.

In rugby league

Rugby league has been given a giant tick from American spectators following a thrilling double-header at Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas yesterday.

Manly put on a show to down South Sydney 24-36, while the Roosters out-muscled the Broncos to win 20-10.

Of course the majority of the over 40,000 spectators who attended were Australians, but there were plenty of locals there too.

“If we can make it here, it’ll be worth tens, if not thousands, of millions of dollars for the game over five years. This is the start, this is the foundation, we now have to build the house,” Peter V’Landys said on Fox League.

“Also the opportunity is here for sports betting. The Super Bowl alone generated over US$23Billion so there’s a market here for sports betting as well.

It’s all about the money folks!

So that’s a wrap!
