Australian sport is mourning the death of affable Test cricketer Max Walker, aged 68.The man universally known as Tangles for his unconventional bowling action died after a two-year battle against melanoma, a form of skin cancer.Walker played 38 Tests and 17 one-day internationals for Australia between 1972 and 1977, and also reached the top-level of Australian Rules football, playing 94 senior VFL games for Melbourne.The Tasmanian-born Walker became a renowned author after his sporting career and was also a popular commentator for the Nine Network.Sad news to hear about that, former Australian captain and fellow commentator Ian Chappell told 3AW.Other teammates including Kerry OKeefe were also quick to pay tribute to the ever-smiling Walker.Max Walker has passed...so sad...melanoma...gentle man ...gentle inswingers...won Tests...won series...decent...respectful...vale T Foot! OKeefe posted on Twitter.Ex-Test batsman Dean Jones posted: So sad to hear of the passing of Max Walker. What a great cricketer, author and story teller. Ripper bloke whose smile lit up a room! #263Walker was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia in 2011 for his services to cricket as a player and commentator, and also to social organisations.Walker believed he got the gong because he always said yes - yes to bowling into the wind for Australia; yes to holding down an Australian Rules defensive post for Melbourne; yes to numerous community organisations who need help.Maybe the recognition is a result of saying yes more times than no, which in itself is a nice place to be, Walker told AAP at the time.After retiring from cricket in 1981, Walker carved a career as a sports commentator, author and public speaker and is thankful for advice from cricket commentary doyen Alan McGilvray.Mac said to me imagine youre speaking to a whole bunch of blind people. If you can satisfy their needs in word pictures, you will be well on the way to success, he told AAP.It is the best bit of communication advice ... and that set up the story telling and the television and the books that followed.Walkers exalted status led to charity work with a plethora of organisations, many revolving around social and youth work.You have an ability to open a door, make a phone call, create an idea or sow a seed for something to happen perhaps quicker than if you went through the normal gate keepers and channels to help, he said.t.

Super middleweight Eduard Gutknecht, who remains in a coma two weeks after suffering a brain injury in a loss to George Groves, is being moved from a London hospital to Germany, promoter Wiking-Boxteam said Saturday.The entire Wiking-Boxteam fights and hopes for Eddy, the company said in a statement on Saturday. The condition of Eddy is currently stable. He is in a coma but is no longer in the acute ICU. His family is always at his side in the hospital. Eddy is currently being moved to Germany. Our thoughts are with him and wish him a full recovery.On Nov. 18, the 34-year-old Gutknecht (30-5-1, 13 KOs), a native of Kazakhstan based in Germany, squared off with longtime 168-pound contender Groves at the SSE Wembley Arena in London. Groves, who has lost three world title fights, won a near-shutout decision -- 119-109 on all three scorecards -- to put himself in position for another possible world title fight in 2017.Shortly after the fight, Gutknecht, who took a lot of punishment, collapsed in his dressing room and was rushed to the hospital, where he underwent surgery to relieve swelling on his brain.Wiking-Boxteam said doctors said Gutknechts organs are working normally.We have to be patient. Forecasts and assumptions can go in all directions, the statement said. It is very difficult for the family with this situation. TThe entire Wiking-Boxteam suffers with Eddy and is affected.dddddddddddd But we also know that we are talking about boxing and like all high-performance sports, in addition to the joy of competition and the ceremony at the victory, unfortunately, always the risk of injury is present.Eddy has his dream of boxing against George Groves and again to reach for the world champion crown. Now he has to wake up [and have] a full recovery, so he can be there for his family again. Eddy you can do it! Eddy youre strong!Like Groves, Gutknecht was on the hunt for another world title opportunity. He had lost decisions in two previous attempts, to Robert Stieglitz in 2010 and Juergen Braehmer in March.Groves said he has not made any comments about the fight or Gutknechts situation out of respect for Eduard and his familys privacy.But Groves said his team has set up a fund to help raise money to go toward Gutknechts medical expenses. Groves also said his team planned to organize an auction of celebrity items with whatever money it raises going to Gutknechts family.Hes a husband and a father and the money raised will go towards helping his family be with him at this difficult time, Groves said in a statement.
