Demons and Killester win

BASKETBALL: C&S UCC Demons and Killester remain joint-leaders of the men's Premier League after overcoming difficult tests.

On Saturday, Killester saw off a battling Templeogue outfit, while Demons had too much for Belfast Star in Cork yesterday.

In Limerick, the battle for third place also heated up as UL Eagles defeated Bord Gáis Neptune, moving to within two games of the Cork outfit. Dublin Inter notched a second straight league win by defeating SSE Renewables Moycullen, while UCD Marian benefited from a strong performance from their bench players to see off DCU Saints. In the women's Premier League, UL Huskies took a major step towards capturing the 2014 regular season title with a home victory over DCU Mercy.

Chisora to face Fury

boxing: Dereck Chisora claimed a unanimous points victory over Kevin Johnson at the Copper Box to put himself on a collision course with fellow British heavyweight Tyson Fury.

Chisora was untroubled in his win over the New Jersey fighter, claiming the contest 118-109, 118-110 and 118-109 on the judges' scorecards, with a likely fight against Fury next up.

Earlier, Fury needed just four rounds to emerge victorious from a slug-fest with Joey Abell.

Fury took some heavy shots in the first two rounds, and there was a moment of controversy when he caught his opponent after the break in the third. The referee took no action and Fury repeatedly sent his opponent to the canvas – and when it happened a fourth time, that proved to be the end.
