World - Boxing legend Hagler hails `historic` Mayweather-Pacquiao fight

Boxing legend Marvin Hagler`s fabled clash with Sugar Ray Leonard was the superfight of its day -- but the massively anticipated showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather will eclipse it, he says. Speaking with AFP during a visit to Hong Kong, the 60-year-old said the fight between the world famous welterweights in Las Vegas on May 2 would be the `biggest fight in history`, regardless of who wins. The fight has echoes of Hagler`s 1987 showdown with Leonard, also staged in Las Vegas, which saw him lose on points in a decision which remains controversial to this day. Pacquiao and Mayweather are considered to be the best `pound-for-pound` boxers of their generation and their $200 million clash will finally happen after years of failed negotiations.

World - After decades of conflict, Israeli women say `enough`

As Israel readies for a general election, the issue of peace with the Palestinians has been noticeably absent from debate. Braving intermittent rain to stand for hours outside Israel`s parliament building in Jerusalem this week, thousands of women, young and old, religious and secular, Arab and Jewish, chanted and waved placards, demanding a solution to the conflict be found, or at least discussed, by politicians. The Women Wage Peace organisation, formed after a devastating summer war in the Gaza Strip that killed nearly 2,200 Palestinians and 73 people on the Israeli side, are hoping their voice will be heard as Israelis go to the polls on March 17. The group`s aim is to push the next government, whichever that is, to resume peace talks with Palestinians and come to a final agreement that will end decades of often bloody conflict.

Sports - Darvish exits first exhibition start early

The Texas Rangers` Japanese ace Yu Darvish insisted his early exit from his first Spring Training game on Thursday was no cause for concern. Darvish was pulled from the exhibition game against Kansas City in Surprise, Arizona, after just 12 pitches because of tightness in his right triceps. `I just had some (normal) tightness in my triceps, so I was throwing without putting too much effort, I was only focusing on my command,` Darvish said, adding that he felt the muscle tightening up in the bullpen. The 28-year-old hurler had his season cut short in August with what the Rangers first called inflammation in his right elbow.
