Juan Francisco Estrada outpoints 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez in clash of lighter weight starsSports have largely left Glendale and what is now Desert Diamond Arena with the departure of the Arizona Coyotes to Tempe. But anyone who was there for the Román "Chocolatito" Gonzalez vs. Juan Francisco Estrada fight Saturday night knew he or she witnessed a boxing classic. By the ninth round, Carmona hear boos and more offensive chants. His strategy didn't pay off even though the fight went the full 12 rounds. The fight went all scheduled eight rounds, but Castro scored a unanimous decision win to improve to 9-0.
Their 42-34 victory over the Saints cooled the seat of head coach Kliff Kingsbury, at least temporarily. Those in attendance responded by giving the Cardinals a standing ovation as they left the field at halftime. On the brink of chaos, the Cardinals saved a season from spiraling out of control. Maybe it arrived four days late, against a decimated Saints team, against a quarterback that has lost 12 consecutive primetime starts on the road. They’ll enter an extended break with new momentum, with renewed hope that a floundering season has been found in the darkness.3 months ago Arizona Sports
Aguano also added that he may wait until as late as Friday before naming who will be under center at Colorado between Emory Jones and Trenton Bourguet. “Going forward, and you’ll see it out there, it’s an open competition, a true open competition for both of those guys,” Aguano said Monday. … It is a true competition these next three days and we’ll see how that plays. There was some inconsistency I thought in the second half a little bit. 21 ranked Washington, Bourguet tossed three touchdown passes and 182 passing yards on 71% passing (15-for-21), with his lone mistake being one interception.3 months ago Arizona Sports
Days before murdering another inmate, Maricopa County jail detainee Michael Schroeder told detention officers and mental health professionals he planned to kill someone. “Since 2010, Maricopa County has known it has had a problem with how it houses one inmate with another.”Wulkan is right. Over the past decade, Maricopa County taxpayers have paid out more than $21,804,853.99 in settlements for jail-related lawsuits, records show. The combined taxpayer cost of the four settlements mentioned in the notice of claim topped $8.5 million. As the Steven Lemus case is still in litigation, we’ll refrain from commenting at this time.3 months ago ABC15 Arizona
3 TCU 65-7 Monday night to become the first team to win consecutive College Football Playoff national championships. No team has ever scored more points in a national championship game, dating to the beginning of the BCS in 1998. It looked a lot like the Bennett-to-Mitchell touchdown that gave Georgia a fourth-quarter lead it would not relinquish against Alabama in last year’s CFP title game. Georgia vanquished the Tide to break a 41-year national title drought last season, avenging its only regular-season loss in the process. They were within a victory of the program’s first national title since 1938.25 days ago Arizona Sports
Many of which indicate a small percentage of voters are still trying to make up their minds. Addressing abortion, Masters says he does not support the pre-statehood law banning abortion almost entirely in Arizona. “I’ve come out in favor of Arizona’s 15-week law I think most people in Arizona support that,” said Masters. California will probably make different decisions than Arizona, which will probably make different decisions than Texas. He now hopes with little time left in the race, Arizona voters turn out to support him too in November.3 months ago ABC15 Arizona
Arizona Democratic Senator Mark Kelly is flying high in a high-stakes race - quite literally. I think our country is better when you have people willing to reach across the aisle," says Sen. Kelly. And on top of that, I put all of mine and Gabby's assets into a qualified blind trust, so I don't have control over it," says Sen. Kelly. We've got a plan for a permanent solution, not a temporary solution," says Sen. Kelly. And if they can't legally do it... well, we can change the laws," says Sen. Kelly.3 months ago ABC15 Arizona
TEMPE — Nearly 31% of the Minnesota Vikings’ scrimmage yards this season have been produced by Justin Jefferson, the 23-year-old receiver coming off back-to-back Pro Bowls to start his career. The Arizona Cardinals have faced him once before, in Week 2 of last season, and the young target reeled in six balls for 65 yards and a touchdown. “All-around type of guy.”The Cardinals head to Minnesota on Sunday, and the defense’s ability to keep Jefferson away from big-chunk plays could be a deciding factor. However, while defensive coordinator Vance Joseph called Jefferson a special player, he doesn’t look at him differently than other top receivers Arizona has seen this year. Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury sees some DeAndre Hopkins in Jefferson’s ability to line up everywhere and produce on a down-to-down basis.3 months ago Arizona Sports
