    Jason Sosa is heading overseas to make his first junior lightweight title defense. He will face Stephen Smith on Nov. 12 at the Salle des Etoiles in Monte Carlo, Monaco.The fight represents a change of plans for Sosa (19-1-4, 15 KOs) of Camden, New Jersey. Initially, he was going to defend his secondary 130-pound title this fall against 21-year-old Baltimore product Gervonta Davis (16-0, 15 KOs), a Floyd Mayweather protégé. But Sosas co-promoter, Russell Peltz, told ESPN.com that when Davis and his team failed to finalize the fight, Sosas team moved on to make a deal with Smith and his promoter, Matchroom Boxings Eddie Hearn.We are fighting Stephen Smith Nov. 12 in Monte Carlo. Davis or his team priced themselves out, Peltz said.Sosa, 28, fought to a 10-round majority draw with former featherweight titlist Nicholas Walters in December 2015 in a fight that virtually all observers had Walters winning easily. But the draw put Sosa in position for a shot at secondary titleholder Javier Fortuna, and they fought on June 24 in Beijing.Down on all three scorecards, Sosa rallied for an 11th-round knockout in a major upset to win the belt.The title shot will be the second for Smith, 31, who is part of a Liverpool, England, fighting family. He is one of four brothers who box professionally. Liam Smith lost a junior middleweight world title by ninth-round knockout to Canelo Alvarez on Sept. 17; Callum Smith is a super middleweight contender; and Paul Smith has challenged twice for the super middleweight title.Stephen Smith challenged junior lightweight titlist Jose Pedraza on April 16 at the Foxwoods resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut, on a Showtime-televised card, but Smith lost a unanimous decision in a competitive fight. He rebounded with a seventh-round knockout of Daniel Eduardo Brizuela on May 29 and is excited to get another chance at a world title.Im delighted to have this fight, really grateful for the opportunity as I believe its a fight I will win, Smith told ESPN.com on Saturday. The fact that I got the chance so soon after Pedraza was even better. I was happy to fight again straight after that fight (against Brizuela), and it has proved beneficial now with this opportunity coming about.I think Sosa is a good, solid fighter without being spectacular in any area in particular. He has had a couple of decent results lately -- drawing with Walters, then beating Fortuna -- although, like many, I thought Walters won. [Sosas] confidence should be high, and I should be facing him at his best, which Im relishing.Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz, who represents Fortuna but also has options on Sosa, said the winner of Sosa-Smith will have to face Fortuna next. Fortuna (30-1-1, 22 KOs), of the Dominican Republic, has the contractual right to a rematch against Sosa or to a fight against an opponent who defeats him.Fortuna, 27, rebounded from the loss to Sosa with a second-round knockout of countryman Marlyn Cabrera on Sept. 23.One of the fights in the works for the card is a rematch between former super middleweight titleholder Arthur Abraham (45-5, 30 KOs) of Germany, and Englands Martin Murray (33-4-1, 16 KOs). Abraham, 36, claimed a split decision against Murray in a November 2015 title defense.Abraham lost the 168-pound belt in his next fight to Mexicos Gilberto Ramirez but rebounded with a win on July 16. Murray, 34, bounced back with a win after the loss to Abraham but then lost his next bout, a unanimous 12-round decision to countryman George Groves on June 25.

Blue Adidas Outdoor Shoes. -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room. After an eye catching performance in her pre-quarterfinals against Chinese Taipeis Tai Tzu Ying, P V Sindhu runs into a formidable opponent in Chinas Wang Yihan later tonight in Rio.Yihan, ranked number two in the world at the moment, is one of the great players of the modern game. Besides a bunch of Super Series titles, Yihan won silver at the last Olympic games in London, going down in a tight three-game final to compatriot Li Xuerui.Sindhu though wont be intimidated by her more pedigreed rival. They have clashed six times over their careers and though Yihan leads their head to head 4-2, Sindhu beat her when they met last at the Denmark Open last October in straight games in the quarterfinal.Sindhu has also upset Yihan as an emerging teenager at the 2013 World championships on her way to a historic bronze. Other matches between the players have been closely fought affairs including an epic encounter at the Australian Open in May last year that Yihan squeezed through 25-23 in the third game after an hour and 12 minutes.Anotheer factor that may work in Sindhus favour in this encounter is Yihans lack of competitive match practice going into the clash.dddddddddddd As one of the top seeds she wasnt required to play a pre-quarterfinal like Sindhu and wasnt stretched much in her two group encounters, clinching both in straight games.However, Sindhus coach Gopichand concedes that she starts the match as the underdog and he believes the 21-year old is a big match player who has responded well in pressure situations in the past.Although Sindhus form on the circuit has been patchy this year, as evidenced by a 23-13 win-loss record, her performances so far in Rio have been sharp. Before Tai she subdued Michelle Li of Canada in a tight three game encounter to seal her spot in the knockout rounds. While Yihan has the greater pedigree going into this contest, the Indian has already shown that she can hold her own in such situations. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
