Pinay martial artist trains in Bangkok

With the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic forcing travel restrictions in Bangkok, mixed martial arts fighter Denice Zamboanga has to stay in the Thai capital for now while continuing her training.

However, this opened a chance for her to make an in-cage return to One Championship as the promotion has begun returning to action in Bangkok in a bubble of sorts.

“I just want to stay ready, because anytime, I can get called up to compete now that One Championship is hosting events here in Thailand," Zamboanga, currently the top ranked women's atomweight fighter at One, said.

No exit talks between Barca, Messi

Barcelona insisted they had not heard from Lionel Messi that he wants to leave the club, as an emergency board meeting was being held at Camp Nouyesterdayd.

Barca officials, including under-fire president Josep Maria Bartomeu, were due to discuss wholesale changes following the team's humiliating 8-2 Champions League quarter-final defeat by Bayern Munich on Friday.

A report from EsporteInterativo on Sunday even claimed Messi has made up his mind to leave this summer, although a Barcelona source told AFP shortly before the board meeting was due to start that there had still been no communication with the club to that effect.
