rlier, he whiffed on blitzing Seahawks

CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- Forget worlds best fighter, Floyd Mayweather Jr. Andrew Billings Jersey . was rated by the South African government as the worlds greatest athlete and backed him to turn around boxing in the country. The sports ministry announced Mayweather will arrive on Wednesday for a near-weeklong visit -- his first to Africa and a triumph for the country which finally got its man after trying to lure the 36-year-old superstar as guest of honour at the national sports awards last year. The Ministry of Sport and Recreation also said on Tuesday that the boxer nicknamed "Money" had not been paid any fee to come. It hopes he can do more than just throw a few jabs and sign a few autographs for boxing in South Africa, which was still popular but in steady decline. Mayweathers four-city visit would help "resuscitate" the sport, ministry spokesman Paena Galane told The Associated Press. "Remember, hes the greatest athlete in the world," Galane said. Mayweathers schedule will include an exhibition at a gym in the Johannesburg township of Soweto and possibly a visit to late South African President Nelson Mandelas apartheid-era jail on Robben Island when hes in Cape Town. Mayweather will also visit Bloemfontein and East London on the south east coast, the city regarded as the hotbed of South African boxing. "We wanted someone whos knowledgeable as a fighter and as a promoter," Galane said of South Africas pursuit of Mayweather to be the catalyst for its boxing revival. Mayweather does both better than most. In his last fight in September, Mayweather dominated Canelo Alvarez to improve to 45-0 with 26 knockouts and enhance his reputation as the best boxer of his era. He earned $41.5 million for the fight, which was the richest ever and generated around $150 million in TV revenue alone. The five-division world champion hasnt announced an opponent for his next fight, expected to be in May, although Britains Amir Khan has said he has signed an initial contract that may give him a shot at the undefeated American. Galane dismissed suggestions that reporters wouldnt be allowed to ask Mayweather questions on his future fight plans when he appears alongside South Africas sports minister and the head of its Olympic committee at a promotional event in Johannesburg on Wednesday. While the flamboyant Mayweather is expected to be accompanied by his usual large travelling entourage, the sports ministry said he would arrive on a commercial flight from the United States and not on a private jet. Sam Hubbard Bengals Jersey . The 41-year-old Northern Irishman has proved a perfect fit at Liverpool since taking over from Kenny Dalglish in the summer of 2012 and steered the team to an unexpected title challenge in the Premier League last season. Cincinnati Bengals Jerseys . Torres scored the first goal by an English team in the knockout phase of the Champions League this season when he met Cezar Azpilicuetas cutback in the ninth minute of their first leg match in the last 16. But Chelsea failed to make the most of its counterattacks and the Turkish champions equalized in the second half after gaining in confidence and cutting out their defensive mistakes. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- John Fox swears he hasnt lost confidence in Ronnie Hillman even though the second-year running back has had back-to-back games with fumbles returned for touchdowns. Still, it was rookie Montee Ball who got most of the work Monday with Denvers starters for the first time all summer. "Its just practice," Fox said. "I wouldnt read too much into anything. Were evaluating everybody regardless of who gets what reps at what numbers. Hes a guy that we want to get touches and well go from there." Hillman, a second-year speedster from San Diego State who played sparingly last year, bulked up over the winter and was given first crack at winning the starting job. He fumbled at the goal line in Seattle a week ago, and it was returned 106 yards for the score. A week later, Rams rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree pried the football from his arms after a short catch and returned it 13 yards for a touchdown. After that, Hillman didnt touch the ball and the snaps were shared by Ball, who set an NCAA record with 83 touchdowns at Wisconsin, and former first-round pick Knowshon Moreno. Asked if his promotion Monday was due more to what he was doing right or what Hillman had done wrong, Ball said. "For me, Im looking at it as what Ive done. Ive been consistent. Yeah, Ive made mistakes, but Ive done a great job to not repeat them. Thats wwhat I plan to continue to do. Preston Brown Bengals Jersey. " Both Ball and Hillman want to be the featured back in Denvers offence, but with the way Fox has always divvied up carries in his backfield, it might not matter whos the first running back out of the tunnel on Sept. 5 anyway. "Whoever we keep were going to lean on and well play and I think our track record says that," Fox said. Ball hasnt been free of blunders either. He was penalized for covering up the tight end in a formation against St. Louis and also dropped a pass from Peyton Manning because he said he "smelled the end zone." A week earlier, he whiffed on blitzing Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner, who drove Manning into the ground just as he released a 31-yard pass to Julius Thomas. "Its the worst feeling as a rookie, seeing a future Hall of Famer get hit like that pretty hard," Ball said. "Thats not a good thing at all and I most definitely got chewed out about it (by running backs coach Eric Studesville) and I knew I couldnt say a word." Despite all his rookie mistakes, Ball said hes ready to start in Week 1. "Yeah, thats been my goal ever since I was drafted," he said. "Thats (everyones) goal in the running back room, to become the starter. For me, every opportunity thrown at me, Im going to make sure I take advantage of it." Cheap Steelers Jerseys Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Raiders Jerseys Cheap Chiefs Jerseys Cheap Eagles Jerseys Cheap Redskins Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Cheap Ravens Jerseys Cheap Browns Jerseys Cheap Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Bills Jerseys Cheap Panthers Jerseys Cheap Bears Jerseys Cheap Bengals Jerseys Cheap Texans Jerseys Cheap Broncos Jerseys ' ' '
