Junior middleweight Ishe Smith harbors dreams of eventually reclaiming

Junior middleweight Ishe Smith harbors dreams of eventually reclaiming a world title, while Frank Galarza is aiming simply to bounce back from his first career defeat. That is what is at stake when they meet in the scheduled 10-round main event of a Premier Boxing Champions card on Sept. 16 (Bounce TV, 9 p.m. ET/PT) at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.The card, which is being promoted by Floyd Mayweathers Mayweather Promotions and was announced Tuesday, will also feature junior middleweight Chris Pearson (14-1, 10 KOs) taking on Justin DeLoach (15-1, 8 KOs) in the 10-round co-feature.Im the type to always stay in good condition, so I will be ready to get in on fight night, Smith said. Im deep into training, and Im planning on delivering a great hard fight for all the fans to enjoy. Im focused on this fight, but my goal is to get the world title back.Smith, 38, became the first Las Vegas-born fighter to win a world title when he outpointed Cornelius K9 Bundrage in Bundrages hometown of Detroit in 2013. Smith (28-8, 12 KOs) lost the 154-pound belt in his first defense seven months later, a decision to Carlos Molina. Smith is coming off a 10-round decision win against Tommy Rainone in December.Galarza (17-1-2, 11 KOs), 30, of Brooklyn, New York, is coming off his first defeat, a sixth-round knockout to unbeaten rising contender Jarrett Hurd in November.I feel great, and Im ready for a chance to redeem myself, Galarza said. I know Ishe is an experienced fighter, but this is a shot for me to get back to the top level. I cant wait to show the boxing world what I am made of.Pearson, 25, of Dayton, Ohio, suffered his first loss, an eight-round decision to Eric Walker in December, but he bounced back with a 10-round decision win against Joshua Okine on April 30. He will look to make it two wins in a row against DeLoach.Im familiar with my opponent, and Im treating this like a world title fight, Pearson said. I feel like getting this victory will put me right at the top of the division. Were both hungry and want to prove that we have what it takes to be world champions. Im preparing to be at my very best because of the caliber of fight this is.DeLoach, 22, of Augusta, Georgia, has won five fights in a row since his only loss, a third-round knockout to Cesar Vila in 2015.Im very excited to get back in the ring against a good opponent. This has been a great year for me, and it seems to keep getting better, said DeLoach, who has beaten undefeated opponents in his past two fights. Im looking forward to a great fight and heading to Las Vegas to handle my business. Im fighting for my whole city, my family and my fans. I wont let them down. Adidas Shoes Online . Nigeria beat surprise package Ethiopia 2-0 in the second leg of their playoff for a comfortable 4-1 aggregate victory. Victor Moses converted a 20th-minute penalty after an Ethiopian handball, and Victor Obinna made certain of Nigerias place in Brazil with his powerful free kick in the 82nd at UJ Esuene Stadium. Cheap Adidas Shoes . PETERSBURG, Fla. . SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. PHILADELPHIA -- Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles are going backward.The rookie quarterback had his worst game in Week 13. So did the defense. The coaches also deserve blame because players were undisciplined and uninspired.A third straight double-digit loss -- 32-14 at Cincinnati -- has Philadelphia reeling down the home stretch. After a surprising 3-0 start, the Eagles (5-7) have lost seven of nine.This was supposed to be a rebuilding year and its turned out that way.However, the Eagles arent making progress. Theyve regressed since a promising first month.The losses are looking worse each week. The Eagles were a play away from winning in their first four losses.But the past three havent been close. The margin of defeat has been 14.3 points per game.Were still on track, coach Doug Pederson said Monday. Now, do we expect to go out and play like weve played the last couple of weeks? No, we dont. Do we expect to be down 19-0 at halftime? No, we dont. I know where we are as a football team. We are playing with some young guys on offense. There are some younger guys on defense.Wentz was flawless in September. He didnt commit a turnover, completed almost 65 percent of his passes and posted a 103.8 passer rating in three games. He tossed a career-high three picks against the Bengals and has thrown six interceptions in the past three games.Its strictly mechanics, Pederson said. Its the fact that we have to get him off his back foot and get him stepping into the throws and trusting the decision down the field.The Eagles were missing top receiver Jordan Matthews and top rusher Ryan Mathews against the Bengals, so the offense already was at a disadvantage from the start.Right tackle Lanee Johnson is serving a 10-game suspension and his backup Halapoulivaati Vaitai is injured.ddddddddddddObviously we dont make plays, we have a lot of mistakes, weve got to clean up some of our discipline, Wentz said.The defense has no excuses. It continued a run of disappointing performances despite playing against a team that didnt have receiver A.J. Green and running back Giovani Bernard. Cincinnati scored on its first six possessions and racked up 412 yards.Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartzs unit played so well the first month that many people expected the former Lions head coach would be a hot commodity after this season.However, the defense has steadily declined and Schwartz is taking heat for it.The Eagles havent had a sack in the past two games, a remarkable stat considering they had 20 in the first six games and theyre supposed to have one of the strongest defensive lines in the league.Obviously, we arent getting to the quarterback the way we should, said defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, who has no sacks in the past eight games.When teams have success of dinking and dunking us, they see the previous teams. Its a copycat league. Teams are going to that and get rid of the ball quick. When theyre ready to go deep, they seven-man protect. Were rushing four, so you do the math.The good news for the Eagles is three of their last four games are at home, where theyre 4-1. Theyll host the Redskins (6-5-1) this week.---For more NFL coverage: and Rob Maaddi on Twitter: Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
