Ricky Burns set for Vegas showdown with Adrien Broner in February

first_imgBurns successfully defended his title against Kiryl Relikh at Glasgow’s Hydro on October 7, setting up a significant payday in America. Broner will be favourite to win but Morrison insisted that Burns was not taking the fight just for financial reasons.“Ricky could receive a life-changing amount of money with his fight and I’m confident he’ll retain his title,” he said.“He’s not going there to sell his title. He’ll be going there to retain it.“I think he showed on Saturday he’s capable of beating anyone.” WBA super-lightweight world champions Ricky Burns is set to face Adrien Broner in Las Vegas in February.The much-anticipated fight is “99% certain”to go ahead at 140 pounds after the pair have circled each other for years. Broner has been talked about as a likely opponent, and has spoken of his willingness to take on Burns, at the three weights where the Scotsman has held world titles.“I’d say it’s 99% certain the fight against Broner in Las Vegas will go ahead,” Burns’ manager Alex Morrision told STV. “We are in on-going negotiations with Broner’s camp.“It’s likely to take place in February, as yet a venue to be identified.” Broner is widely considered to be the best fighter in the division. At 27, he is six years Burns’ junior and has a record of 32 wins from 34 fights, 24 of which have come by knockout. The American has held world titles at four different weights.last_img read more

Irish exploration firm lists on JSE’s AltX

first_img“The approval by the JSE of our dual listing marks an important step in the company’s development and supports our strategy to be a significant African mineral exploration and development company,” Kibo Mining CEO Noel O’Keefe said in a statement last week. The dual listing also frees capital to consolidate the company’s position in the industry by acquisition of other potential mineral assets. South African individuals will be able to acquire Kibo shares on the JSE, without restriction. Consequently, the purchase of Kibo shares by a South African individual would not affect their R2-million offshore investment allowance.

Jamaicans can Fill Specialist Posts at Alpart – PM

first_img “In my meeting with Chairman Chen Chunming of Jiquan Iron &Steel (Group) Company Limited (JISCO)… it became clear to me that the company understands the need for local employment,” he said. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says he expects that Jamaican workers will be afforded every opportunity to take up highly skilled positions at the new ALPART/JISCO Alumina Refinery in Nain, St. Elizabeth. Story Highlights Mr. Holness assured the new owners that all the high technology and high human resource capabilities required “can be found right here in Jamaica”. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says he expects that Jamaican workers will be afforded every opportunity to take up highly skilled positions at the new Alpart/JISCO Alumina Refinery in Nain, St. Elizabeth.In giving the keynote address at the official opening of the facility on June 21, Mr. Holness said it is the intention of the Government to ensure that Jamaican workers are adequately trained to take up these high-skill jobs.“In my meeting with Chairman Chen Chunming of Jiuquan Iron &Steel (Group) Company Limited (JISCO)… it became clear to me that the company understands the need for local employment,” he said.“I want to assure Chairman Chen that we understand the need for high-calibre human resources to operate this plant. We operated this plant for decades before and quite efficiently I might add. We know how to do it and we have the capabilities here locally,” he noted.Mr. Holness assured the new owners that all the high technology and high human resource capabilities required “can be found right here in Jamaica”.He cited specialist welders, persons who deal with specialist equipment as well as highly skilled engineers as some of the workers that can be trained to fill top positions.“In the initial stages, we understand that you will have to bring the experts from China to work alongside our own local labour to develop the expertise here. In the long run, it will be the best economic decision to employ local workers,” he pointed out.He noted that under the Housing, Opportunities, Production and Employment (HOPE) framework, the Government has developed an employment strategy “that will see the alignment of our young people leaving school through a system of apprenticeship and national service that will not only develop the necessary skills but more importantly, the necessary attitude that will help to bridge the cultural gaps that may exist between our two countries.”last_img read more

Judge reserves decision on request for order to remove Indigenous protest camp

first_imgThe Canadian PressA judge has reserved her decision on the request by the Saskatchewan government for an order to evict Indigenous protesters who have been camping in teepees on the legislature grounds.Justice Ysanne Wilkinson of Court of Queen’s Bench heard arguments Thursday from both sides on what should happen to the Justice For Our Stolen Children camp.The government contends the protesters are breaking bylaws and making it hard for the province to maintain the land across from the legislature building.“This case is not about whether the protesters are advocating for an honourable cause,” government lawyer Michael Morris told a packed courtroom.“It is not about whether there are too many Indigenous children in foster care. It is not about whether the criminal justice system is fair for Indigenous people.“This case is about the government’s ability to regulate, maintain land in Wascana Centre.”The first teepee went up six months ago and more have been set up as campers protest what they say is racial injustice and the disproportionate number of Indigenous children apprehended by child-welfare workers.Morris said the government has received several complaints about the camp and that public safety needs to be considered.The protesters were immediately told they had to leave.Morris said they were given numerous trespassing notices and police moved in June 18 to dismantle the camp. Six people were arrested but never charged.The camp was set up again two days later and police have held off ever since.Nine events have had to be relocated because of the camp, including part of the province’s Canada Day celebration.Protesters have filed a court application of their own seeking to have the six arrests made during the June eviction declared illegal.Meara Conway, a lawyer representing the protesters, said the arrests were a “dismal day for democracy in Saskatchewan.”Wilkinson is giving lawyer Dan LeBlanc, another lawyer representing the protesters, one week to submit further documents pertaining to his case against the arrests.LeBlanc told court Regina police Chief Evan Bray has already concluded the camp does not pose a safety risk. He added that the case is about freedom of speech.“The government bears the burden of convincing you that its infringement is justified,” LeBlanc said.Katrina Swan, a lawyer for the Regina Police Service, acknowledged that there was pressure on the police from the government to dismantle the camp in June.One of the arguments that government lawyers raised and was echoed by the judge is why the protesters never applied for a permit to stay on the legislative grounds.Outside court, LeBlanc said the judge will have to weigh that as she ponders her decision.“It’s true there’s no record of the people applying for permits before,” he said. “There’s certainly appeal level decisions from across Canada which say that’s not conclusive on the answer.”Also outside court, protester Richelle Dubois said that it’s important to have the camp on the legislature grounds.Her 14-year-old son, Haven, died in 2015 from what was ruled an accidental drowning. Dubois has never accepted that conclusion.“It’s a healing place for families like myself for the stories of situations like my son’s,” she said.last_img read more
