Middleweight titlist Daniel Jacobs and Sergio Mora will meet again.Jacobs will defend his secondary 160-pound title against former junior middleweight titleholder Mora on Sept. 9 at the Santander Center in Reading, Pennsylvania, in the main event of a Premier Boxing Champions card on Spike (9 p.m. ET), PBC announced on Thursday, making the long-rumored fight official.Jacobs and Mora first met last August at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, in an unexpectedly wild fight. Both men got knocked down in the first round before the fight came to an abrupt conclusion in the second round. That is when Jacobs dropped Mora again and he broke his ankle going down and was unable to continue.Mora called for a rematch when he was healthy. Jacobs has repeatedly said he was not very interested in a second fight, but they will nonetheless do it again.This is business for me, but it is also more personal than any fight I have ever had, Jacobs said. Sergio has been using these antics online to get this rematch and he has gotten under my skin. There has been a lot of back-and-forth as far as peoples opinions as to who would have won the fight had he not gotten hurt. I am looking at this as an opportunity to clarify that I am the real champion. I want to shut his trap in prime time.While Jacobs (31-1, 28 KOs), 29, of Brooklyn, went on to defend his belt by knocking out neighborhood rival Peter Quillin in 75 seconds in December, The Latin Snake Mora (28-4-2, 9 KOs), 35, of East Los Angeles, has not fought since he broke his ankle against Jacobs.I dont think Jacobs wanted this rematch, but it was destined to happen and now he has to deal with it, Mora said. I thought the first fight was going my way. I knocked him down in the first round and was out-boxing him in the second round. He knows that I have enough power to hurt him. He has more to worry about going into this fight than in the first fight. Look at my resume, I have fought solid opposition. Jacobs doesnt have that type of resume.In the co-feature, Ghanas Richard Commey (24-0, 22 KOs), 29, and Robert Easter (17-0, 14 KOs), 25, of Toledo, Ohio, will meet for a vacant lightweight world title. Commey and Easter, who have both knocked out their last five opponents, will be meeting for the 135-pound belt recently vacated by Rances Barthelemy, who elected to move up in weight.Commey was in the mandatory position to fight Barthelemy for the title before he left the weight class. Easter was next in line thanks to his explosive performance on April 1, when he stole the show with a huge one-punch fifth-round knockout of former junior lightweight titlist Argenis Mendez on the undercard of pal Adrien Broners knockout of Ashley Theophane.Also on the Sept. 9 card, heavyweight Travis Kauffman (30-1, 22 KOs), 30, of Reading, will fight an opponent to be determined in a 10-round bout. He is the son of promoter Marshall Kauffman, whose Kings Promotions is putting on the card. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .J. Jefferson has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend.

Two weeks after the PGA Tour season ended, the next one starts Thursday and for some fans it cant get here soon enough: Tiger Woods is returning to golf.Woods made it official Friday by entering the Safeway Open in Napa, California, the first event on the PGA Tours wraparound schedule. He has said a month ago that he hoped to play the Safeway Open at Silverado Resort, but had until Friday afternoon to officially commit.Woods last played on Aug. 23, 2015, at the Wyndham Championship in a last-minute bid to qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs. A month later, he announced a second surgery on his back, and then a third one a month after that.Even through other operations on his knee, the 40-year-old Woods has never spent this long away from competition. And never has the No. 767 player in the world attracted so much attention.Silverado is the perfect course for him because it is so straightforward, tournament host Johnny Miller said last month when Woods indicated he hoped to play. I think hell love being back in California. If he can get a good first round ... just get some confidence and springboard from there.Woods plans to play the Turkish Airlines Open next month and then his Hero World Challenge the first week in December, giving him three tournaments in roughly three months to end the year.The Safeway Open, in its first year as title sponsor, has a little extra star power next week. Phil Mickelson already has announced he will play, and PGA Tour officials are considering putting them in the same group forr the opening round.ddddddddddddIm sort of glad Im not there that week. ... Its going to be a bit of a circus, Rory McIlroy said last month. But its good to see him back and healthy, and it will be exciting to see him back on the course again.Wood sounded defeated last December in the Bahamas because he had no timetable for a return and no idea how long it would take his back to heal. He said at one point, For my 20 years out here, I think Ive achieved a lot, and if thats all it entails, then Ive had a pretty good run. But Im hoping thats not it.He played five holes with Mark OMeara when Woods opened his golf course outside Houston. He also had one awkward moment at Congressional during a promotion for the Quicken Loans National. He was asked to hit a shot over the water to the par-3 10th hole, and put all three of them in the water.Woods said last month his rehabilitation was to the point where he was comfortable making scheduling plans.He was at the Ryder Cup as an assistant captain, mostly walking as he spent time with Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed. Woods this week was named an assistant to Presidents Cup Captain Steve Stricker, though Stricker said he would like to see Woods playing on the team.Woods hasnt won since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational, the 79th title of his PGA Tour career. That left him three short of the record held by Sam Snead. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
