Cincinnati Reds outfielder Tommy Phamhas been suspended three games and fined an undisclosed amount by MLB for “inappropriate conduct” prior to Friday night’s game against the San Francisco Giants. Pham says he has accepted a three-game suspension that resulted from his dispute with Joc Pederson of the Giants. The suspension began with Friday night’s game and will span the final two games of the weekend series between the Giants and Reds at Cincinnati. Michael Hill, MLB’s senior vice president for on-field preparation, made the announcement on Saturday.

According to Pederson and multiple reports, the altercation took place prior to Friday’s game. Pham allegedly slapped Pederson “Will Smith-style” because of a dispute within a Fantasy Football league in which the two players participated. Here’s Pederson’s explanation of what happened:

MLB launched in inquiry into the matter shortly after it occurred, and Pham was scratched from the Reds’ Friday lineup, likely in anticipation of a suspension.

Pham, 34, is in his first season with the Reds. In 42 games for Cincinnati, he’s batted .233/.335/.373 (92 OPS+) with five home runs and 24 walks.

Tyson Fury Beats Dillian Whyte To Retain WBC World Title

Dillian Whyte waited years as the “next man up” for the WBC heavyweight championship. Whyte’s opportunity finally came on Saturday night in London and the dream opportunity turned into a nightmare as he was badly outboxed by Tyson Fury before being knocked out with a heavy uppercut in the final seconds of the sixth round.

Whyte tried to mix up his game from the jump, coming out in a southpaw stance. The tactics didn’t seem to much bother Fury, as the champion fought his ideal gameplan, sticking to the outside and mixing jabs and lead left hooks with solid work to the body.

As the dominance mounted for Fury, Whyte seemed to get frustrated, leading to several clinches where heads clashed and elbows and rabbit punches were thrown. The referee lost control of the action in Round 4 as the two heavyweights refused to listen to his instructions to break.

Once the action settled back into something resembling a boxing match, Fury went right back to exercising control with his reach advantage, forcing Whyte to take more chances to close distance.

The Fury jab would eventually set up the finishing moment in Round 6 as he followed up a jab with a right uppercut that stunned Whyte and sent him crashing to the canvas.

Whyte beat the count but as he attempted to walk to the referee, his balance was still not there and he stumbled into the ropes, leaving the referee no choice but to waive off the fight at the 2:59 mark of Round 6.

“Listen, Dillian Whyte is a warrior,” Fury said after the fight. “I believe he’ll be a world champion. But I’m one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and unfortunately for Dillian, he had to face me here tonight.”  

“You know, I promised my lovely wife that after the Wilder 3 fight, that fight would be it and I meant it,” Fury said. “But I got offered to fight at Wembley at home and I believed I deserved and owed it [to the fans]. Now it’s all done. I have to be a man of my word and I think this is it. This might be the final curtain of the Gypsy King.”
