Across to boxing Floyd Mayweather remains resolute on his stance that he will retire having equalled Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record.
Mayweather beat Andre Berto comfortably at the weekend, and many want to see him in one last bout, perhaps a rematch against Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather, though, said he had had no plans to continue.
"My career is over. It's official," he said.
"I'm financially secure and I'm in good health.
"You've got to know when it's time to hang it up, so I think it's about time for me to hang it up. I'm close to 40 years old, I've been in this sport 19 years, been world champion for 18 years, I've broken all records.
"There's nothing left to prove in the sport of boxing."
Mo Farah retained his Great North Run title this weekend, clocking an impressive time of 59 minutes and 22 seconds.
Fresh from winning the 5,000m and 10,000m titles at the Beijing World Championships recently, Farah outsprinted Stanley Biwott for the victory.
Lastly in UFC Miesha Tate has revealed her disappointment at missing out on a third fight with Ronda Rousey.
Rousey will face off against rising star Holly Holm in November, and Tate has admitted she was hurt. That’s despite the fact Rousey has beaten her twice already.
"I found out later than half the world, even, because I was still asleep, I guess, when it was announced. I woke up to about 30 texts on my phone saying, ‘Oh, I'm sorry,' and I was like, ‘What?'" Tate said.
"It sucked not finding out from the promotion itself, so I felt a little bit disappointed and my feelings were kind of hurt, to be honest.
"I was really bummed out because I was really motivated and I really felt like I hit a new level. I was training for her already. I didn't take any time off after my fight and it really kind of shot me in the heart."
