MARCOUSSIS, France -- The Canadian team has to go through host France in order to reach the final of the IRB Womens Rugby World Cup. It wont be easy with a sellout crowd of vocal supporters expected to cheer the French sides every move on Wednesday at Stade Jean Bouin in Paris. Canadian head coach Francois Ratier doesnt expect his players to be intimidated by the surroundings in the semifinal matchup. In fact, he feels it will actually give his squad an advantage. "For me, its a challenge for the French, not for us," he said Tuesday from the Paris suburb of Marcoussis. "Because they play in front of their crowd, in front of 20,000 people, and the pressure is on them, not on us. So for us its clear. We know that were going to play against an entire country but its a source of motivation. "We are not afraid at all." Canada (2-0-1) has looked strong at the 12-team tournament with a 31-5 victory over Spain on Aug. 1 and a 42-7 rout of Samoa on Aug. 5. Canada secured a semifinal berth with a 13-13 tie against England -- the 2010 finalist and a three-time runner-up -- last Saturday. France (3-0), meanwhile, has not conceded a single try so far, outscoring Wales, South Africa and Australia by a combined score of 98-6. Canada and France split a two-game series last fall. France took the opener 27-19 on Nov. 2 while Canada beat the host side 11-6 four days later. The winner of Wednesdays game will face either Ireland or England in Sundays final. "This game is a fantastic opportunity for us to show the world that we belong here in the semifinals of the World Cup and in the finals, and our goal is the play our game and enjoy the experience," Ratier said. Canada is 9-5-1 under Ratier, a former French top division player, who took over the Canadian program in March 2013. He has his side playing disciplined rugby with a team-first mentality. There will be a new champion at this years tournament. The England-Canada draw left four-time defending champions New Zealand out of the semifinal picture. It was the first time the Black Ferns have failed to reach the final four in tournament history. Canadas best result at this event is a fourth-place finish, achieved in 1998, 2002 and 2006. The team was a disappointing sixth in 2010. Magali Harvey of Quebec City has three tries in the tournament and leads the Canadian team with 39 points, behind only Englands Emily Scarratts 43. There will be one change to the Canadian lineup as Brittany Waters of Vancouver will replace Jessica Dovanne of Victoria on the wing. Canadian captain Kelly Russell said her teammates are "gritty, fierce and ready to go." "We believe in what were doing and how were playing," she said. "We want it."

The mood in Seattle was electrified as the parade featuring the NFL champions began near the Space Needle and made its way to CenturyLink Field, the home of the team. At a ceremony inside the stadium, the team thanked its loyal followers -- the 12th Man -- capping a day of boisterous celebration that drew an estimated 700,000 revelers to Seattle.

But sell he must, even though oddsmakers and nearly everyone else give Marcos Maidana little chance in their welterweight title fight Saturday night. A full house is already guaranteed at the MGM Grand hotel arena, but Mayweather needs people at home to pay $64.95 for the fight if he is going to recoup his guaranteed $32 million purse. So Mayweather hinted this week that this might be his last fight, though few in boxing believe that. He also said he planned to stand in front of Maidana and trade punches with the hard-hitting Argentine, though his history in the ring suggests he wont. Oh, and he wants to score a knockout, something hes done only once in the last seven years. "I want to look impressive," Mayweather said. "I want to put on a good show. We dont expect this fight to go the distance." Mayweather returns to the ring for the first time since dominating Alvarez in boxings richest bout, taking on Maidana in a fight that even Mayweather seems to have trouble expressing much enthusiasm about. Hes a bigger, much more skilled fighter than the Argentine, just part of the reason oddsmakers make him a 11-1 pick to remain undefeated in the 46th fight of a pro career that has made him the richest fighter ever. Still, Mayweather (45-0, 26 knockouts) says he has to be wary of the power Maidana brings into the ring. "Hes got an 80 per cent knockout ratio so I cant go to sleep on this guy," he said. "But guys cant go to the mental level Im at. I can beat them many ways." The fight is part of a pay-per-view card that features former champion Amir Khan moving up to welterweight to fight another former champion in Luis Collazo. Khan had campaigned to be Mayweathers opponent and won an online poll set up by Mayweather, who ended up picking Maidana instead. If Khan is impressive, though, and Mayweatther wins as expected, the two could meet later this year.dddddddddddd "I would have loved to fight Floyd Mayweather, but I believe its really for the best," Khan said. "It gives me a chance to get to 147 and feel my way." Maidana (35-3, 31 knockouts) earned the fight with a strong showing in his last bout, twice knocking down Adrien Broner on his way to a decision win in December. Though Maidana hits hard, he will be up against a fighter who is such a defensive wizard that he rarely gets hit with more than one punch in any exchange. "Its very difficult to land a punch against Mayweather," Maidana said. "But when I land a punch Im going to hit him and not let him go. I will go after him." Mayweather, who weighed in Friday at 146 pounds to 146 1/2 for Maidana, said he welcomes the challenge after easily beating Alvarez last September in a fight that was supposed to be his toughest test. "If he brings his best maybe he will be the first guy that actually makes me dig in my bag of tricks and pull out my A game," Mayweather said. "Hopefully he will make me bring out my A game because my whole career all I had to use was a D and C game to beat every guy." If the Alvarez fight showed anything other than Mayweathers talent for making money -- and tons of it -- it was that a conventional fighter stands little chance against him. Hes been dodging punches since before he could walk, and hes a wizard at exploiting whatever weakness he finds in the fighter in front of him. "I can feel when a guys gonna punch. I can feel it," Mayweather said. "I dont even have to see it; I can feel it. You know, this is just with experience and being around the sport so long." Maidana says he can become the first to beat Mayweather because he will be the first to treat him just like any other fighter in the ring. "Other fighters they show respect, they show fear," he said. "Thats one thing I wont show against Mayweather."
