Cruiserweight world titleholder Beibut Shumenov and interim titlist Yunier Dorticos will meet in a mandatory bout as the WBA continues to reduce the number of belts in each weight class from three to one. Cheap Cavaliers Jerseys Authentic .Caribe Promotions won a purse bid Monday at WBA headquarters in Panama City, Panama, to gain promotional rights to the bout. Caribe, which promotes Dorticos, bid $350,001 to beat the bid of $201,000 offered by Tom Browns TGB Promotions, which represents Shumenov.Caribes winning purse bid comes as a surprise as it must yield 75 percent of the winning bid ($262,500.75) to Shumenov, while Dorticos is entitled to the remaining 25 percent ($87,500.25).Although the date and site of the bout are not yet set, Caribe Promotions proposed dates and sites as part of its offer. They are Feb. 4 in Houston or Las Vegas or Feb. 11 in Miami. The fight must take place within 90 days of the purse bid.Shumenov (17-2, 11 KOs), 33, a Kazakhstan native fighting out of Las Vegas, held the interim belt, which he defended against B.J. Flores in a decision win in July 2015. He was elevated to a full titleholder and knocked Junior Anthony Wright out in the 10th round of his latest bout May 21. Shumenov previously held the belt but lost it to Bernard Hopkins by decision in a 2014 title unification fight.Dorticos (21-0, 20 KOs), 30, a Cuban defector living in Miami, claimed the vacant interim title by 10th-round knockout of Youri Kalenga in an action-packed fight of the year contender in May in Paris.Unified titleholder Denis Lebedev (29-2, 22 KOs), of Russia, holds the WBAs super title (as well as the IBF belt) and will defend them against Murat Gassiev (23-0, 17 KOs), also of Russia, on Dec. 3 in Moscow. The winner of the bout will be mandated to face the winner of Shumenov-Dorticos. Wholesale Cavaliers Jerseys . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Cavaliers Jerseys China . -- Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, ran for another score, and led No.http://www.wholesalecavaliersjerseys.com/ . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. PHILADELPHIA -- No pass rush, poor coverage and sloppy penalties have turned a strong defense into one of the NFLs worst in a short span.The Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) have lost three straight games by an average margin of 14.3 points per game. While the offense has reasons for struggling -- rookie quarterback, injuries to their leading rusher and top receiver -- the defense has no excuses.Its the same group that was ranked sixth in the NFL after nine games.For nine weeks you probably could not mention best defenses in the NFL without mentioning the Eagles, defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. The last three, you probably cant mention worst defenses in the NFL without mentioning the Eagles. Hey, facts of life, man. Thats what it is. Same scheme, same players. Were in a slump. We have to own that.When the defense was going well, Schwartz got plenty of positive attention. The former Lions head coach appeared on his way to getting another opportunity to run a team after this season. But now hes taking heat for the defenses struggles and suddenly hes no longer one of the hot coordinators.I think any time things arent going well, youre looking at everything that you can, whether its schemes, whether its individual effort, whether its collective effort. Its a tough situation, Schwartz said.Aaron Rodgers and Andy Dalton torched the secondary the past two games and neither quarterback was sacked. The Eagles had 20 sacks in the first five games, but have only six in the last six.Fletcher Cox started the season playing like a guy who deserved the big contract ($63 million guaranteed) he signed in the offseason. Cox had four sacks in the first four games but none since Week 5. Vinny Currry signed a deal that included $18 million guaranteed. Collin Sexton Jersey. . He has 1 1/2 sacks and has only played 43 percent of the snaps.Schwartz relies on his front four linemen to pressure the quarterback because he doesnt like to blitz. The Eagles simply dont have shutdown cornerbacks who can cover receivers man-on-man without safety help.Sometimes the best answer to being able to cover them is get the ball to come out quicker, Schwartz said. There was a double edge to that, too. If they pick up that blitz, you can get isolated in coverage a lot.The Eagles have shown they can dominate games start to finish on defense. They shut down the Steelers and Falcons, two of the most potent offenses in the league.But theyve allowed 85 points in the past three games and an average of 413 total yards per contest.It has a lot to do with confidence, and we need to get back to that, and they need to know that first nine weeks, they were respected for what they put on tape, and the last three, weve been in a slump, and we need to get back to those first nine, Schwartz said.It wont be easy Sunday against the Redskins (6-5-1). The Eagles lost 27-20 at Washington on Oct. 16, allowing a season-worst 493 total yards, including 230 rushing.The main thing is, as a team, we have to be better, Cox said. With a group like that, we have to play our best game and set the tone against those guys by playing physical and stopping the run.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP-RobMaaddi ;Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys NFL China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
