Malo and welcome to Episode 65 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika peoples sports on this drizzling and wet Saturday morning 03 September 2022 – coming to you from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
In tennis – Serena Williams is playing her third-round singles match at the US Open after the 40 year-old and her sister Venus 42, were defeated in the first round of the doubles tournament by a couple of Czech chics!
Meanwhile Awful Aussie Nick Kyrgios has been fined US$7,500 for “spitting and audible obscenities” during his US Open second round match which he won!
Go Serena Go!
In rugby – enough about “dairy farmer Fuzzy”, the All Blacks and their Captain Sam “no show” Cane already!
The Springboks have rushed in teen X-factor Wing, Canan Moodie on debut against Marika Koroibete for their Test versus the Wallabies in Sydney tonight.
Former Boks flyer, Makazole Mapimpi refused to play tonight after he received the hit of a lifetime from Koroibete last weekend! LOL
In rugby league – the Sydney Roosters secured home ground advantage for next weekend’s sudden death final against South Sydney after beating them 26-16 at the new Allianz Stadium last night, but at what cost? Joey Manu, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Sam Verrills all failed to finish the game.
Two key Games in Round 25 today: Can the Broncos slay the Dragons at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium and save their 2022 season?
And in the second game, the Cowboys need to beat the Panthers in Townsville to claim second spot on the NRL ladder and host a home final in week one.
In football – Deadline Day is over thank goodness. EPL Clubs splashed out £2.1Billion, breaking the all-time record spending total for an entire season.
Under their new ballsy American owners, Chelsea was the biggest spenders of this transfer window, stumping up £278.4Million – the most spent by one Club in a single window ever.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has transferred to Chelsea after just six months at the Nou Camp where he says the love he felt from Barca fans was ‘indescribable’.
Liar liar pants on fire – didn’t they just break his jaw?
In boxing – one of the hardest-punching heavyweight boxers of all time, Ernie Shavers, with a career record of 68 knockouts from just 74 fights has passed away.
After taking the Greatest Muhammad Ali to 15 rounds in their World Heavyweight title fight at Madison Square Garden in 1977, Ali said of hard hitting Ernie Shavers, ‘He punched so hard, it shook my kinfolk back in Africa’.
Shavers also fought and knocked down Larry Holmes in the 11th round of their world title fight but lost in 1979.
Ernie Shavers died of unknown causes on Thursday aged 78. Rest in Peace brother.
