  • Mayweather stripped of WBO welterweight belt

    Floyd Mayweather was Monday stripped by the World Boxing Organization of the welterweight world title he won by beating Manny Pacquiao two months ago in what was dubbed "the fight of the century". Mayweather had failed to meet the deadline last Friday for paying the $200,000 sanctioning fee required by the WBO after he took the belt from Pacquiao on May 2 in Las Vegas, in the richest fight of all time, earning a reported $220 million in the process. WBO rules require boxers to pay 3 percent of their purse to fight for a world title up to a maximum of $200,000.

  • $20b wiped off Aussie stock market

    More than $20 billion has been wiped off the Australian stock market after Greece shocked investors with an overwhelming rejection of austerity measures that could see the country headed for a messy exit from the euro zone. Greece's ruling Syriza party secured a stunning victory at a referendum on Sunday, where more than 60 per cent followed Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras's urging and voted against harsh bailout conditions. The Greek government hopes to use the poll results to demand better terms from its major creditors, the International Monetary Fund and the European Union.

  • Russia cuts off power supplies to Ukraine rebels: Kiev

    Kiev said Tuesday that Russia had cut off electricity to Ukraine's rebel-run regions in what appears to be another sign that Moscow is losing interest in plans to splinter its neighbour. Russian President Vladimir Putin has gone through an extended spell without peppering his speeches with mentions of a "New Russia" (Novorossiya) made up of Ukrainian lands that were once under tsarist control. The veteran Kremlin leader had fervently promoted the project while the separatists were gaining ground along Ukraine's eastern industrial heartland toward the end of last year.

  • Las Vegas completing last straw to draw Lake Mead water

    It took $817 million, two starts, more than six years and one worker's life to drill a so-called "Third Straw" to make sure glittery casinos and sprawling suburbs of Las Vegas can keep getting drinking water from near the bottom of drought-stricken Lake Mead.
