By Gabriel Stargardter and Gustavo Palencia TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) - The conservative ruling party candidate claimed victory in Honduras' presidential election on Sunday as a partial vote count put him ahead, but his leftist rival also said she was the winner, setting the stage for possible conflict. The electoral authority said a partial count of votes gave National Party candidate Juan Hernandez some 34.3 percent support while Xiomara Castro, wife of deposed former leader Manuel Zelaya, had almost 28.7 percent. A Hernandez victory would deal a blow to Zelaya, who was ousted in a 2009 coup that plunged Honduras into a political crisis. Hernandez posted a photograph on Twitter of himself and supporters praying on their knees.
Manny Pacquiao would "overwhelm" unbeaten WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather with his lightning speed if the fight that fans crave takes place in 2014, according to trainer Freddie Roach. After Pacquiao returned to winning ways by demolishing former world lightweight champion Brandon Rios in Macau on Sunday, talk turned inevitably to the long-awaited mega-fight against eight-time world champion Mayweather. Promoter Bob Arum confirmed to AFP that Pacquiao, the only man to have held world titles in eight weight divisions, would next fight on April 12 in Las Vegas, with one of his conquerors from last year -- America's WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, or Mexican arch-rival Juan Manuel Marquez -- the likely opponent. After that they would try for Mayweather, who already has a fight scheduled against an as yet unnamed opponent on May 3.
