Renovation of the Smith Campus Center is in full swing. To help reduce disruption to building tenants and visitors, some of the construction work will need to be undertaken in the evenings and on weekends.As a result of this construction, which will include periods when power and other services to the building must be turned off, Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) will be required to temporarily relocate urgent care services (which are available 24 hours a day, every day) to an alternate location after regular business hours.As of June 13, 2016, the locations and hours for patients seeking medical and mental health urgent care are as follows:Monday-Friday, 7:30am-5:30pm, Smith Campus Center, 75 Mt. Auburn StreetMonday-Friday, 5:30pm-7:30am, Pound Hall, 1563 Massachusetts AvenueSaturdays, Sundays, and holidays, all day (24 hours), Pound Hall, 1563 Massachusetts AvenueAdditional information can be found on the HUHS website at huhs.harvard.edu/urgentcare. It is currently expected that these services will again be consolidated at the Smith Campus Center once construction is complete.Please email [email protected] with any questions. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make this transition as easy as possible for all members of our community.
Mexico’s Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 knockouts) defeated Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto (40-5, 33 KOs) by unanimous decision Saturday night at Mandalay Bay to claim the WBC middleweight title.Alvarez, who was more aggressive than usual, was able to dominate most of the rounds with his heavy punches and uppercuts. Cotto, 35, tried to outbox the younger Alvarez, 25, but was often on the short end of exchanges.The judges scored it: 117-111 (John McKaie), 119-109 (Burt Clements) and 118-110 (Dave Moretti). The referee was Robert Byrd.Cotto (40-5, 33 KO) fought well, but was at times overmatched by the younger, bigger, stronger Alvarez’s power, and that made the real difference in the bout. While Cotto couldn’t seem to back Canelo down at any point, Alvarez could hurt Cotto, and did so a few times. Canelo also seemed to have made some real improvements, and Cotto’s attempts to move laterally and outbox Canelo were not as successful as he and trainer Freddie Roach may have hoped.Alvarez is reportedly being ordered by the WBC to fight Gennady Golovkin next, and supposedly has to make that deal within the next 15 days. Golovkin owns the WBA, IBF and IBO middleweight titles. But for now, Canelo’s coming off of the biggest win of his career, and has established himself as a new superstar for the sport of boxing.The win for Canelo makes him the new lineal middleweight champion in addition to the WBC middleweight. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
