Unified middleweight titlist Gennady Golovkin and secondary titleholder Daniel Jacobs on Monday were formally ordered to meet in a mandatory bout, the WBA announced.The 30-day negotiations period has started, WBA president Gilberto Mendoza Jr. said. They have 120 days to do the fight.If the camps do not come to an agreement before the deadline, a purse bid will be ordered.Golovkin and Jacobs are both coming off knockout wins in recent days and are on the same schedule, with Golovkin tentatively slated to return Nov. 26, the date HBO is holding for him.On Friday night, at Santander Arena in Reading, Pennsylvania, Jacobs retained his version of the title for the fourth time by knocking out former junior middleweight titlist Sergio Mora in the seventh round of their rematch. Jacobs, who stopped Mora in the second round 13 months ago, dropped him five times in a one-sided fight.On Saturday night, at the sold-out O2 Arena in London, Golovkin stormed to a knockout of welterweight titleholder Kell Brook, of England, who moved up two weight divisions for the fight. Dominic Ingle, Brooks trainer, threw in the towel during the fifth round as Golovkin battered Brook along the ropes. Brook suffered a broken orbital bone around his right eye.Golovkin, who holds three major world title belts, retained his title for the 17th time, as he scored his 23rd knockout in a row.A fight between Golovkin and Jacobs, also a big puncher, would give them both the opportunity to fight a top opponent in the division; both said they are interested in the bout.Days before the fight with Mora, Jacobs said: We want to fight the best, point blank, period. GGG is the best, and thats the guy that we want.He called out for Golovkin again after knocking out Mora, saying: I want to prove to the world that Im the best middleweight. If GGG gets the victory [Saturday], thats who we want.Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs), 34, a Kazakhstan native living in Santa Monica, California, has campaigned for the fight most fans want to see, a showdown against lineal champion Canelo Alvarez, but Alvarez has avoided him. Golovkin also would like to fight Billy Joe Saunders in a unification fight so he can have a chance to claim the one major belt he does not already own. But Saunders has also dodged him, so Golovkin said he would love to face Jacobs, 29, of Brooklyn, New York, who is one of the top middleweights in the world.Daniel Jacobs, he is very good fighter. Huge fight, probably in New York, Golovkin told ESPN.com in his dressing room after stopping Brook. Absolutely. I am open for everybody. I think right now this is best fight for us.It will come down to whether the sides can make a deal. Golovkin is under contract to HBO, and Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs), while not signed to a television network, is managed by Al Haymon and part of the Premier Boxing Champions series. Haymons fighters, at one point banned by HBO, have been allowed to appear recently as B-sides to star fighters.Dominic Wade, a mandatory challenger, got knocked out by Golovkin in April on HBO, and Amir Khan got brutally stopped by Alvarez in May on HBO PPV.Whether Haymon will negotiate for Jacobs to face Golovkin remains to be seen. If it goes to a purse bid it would be fascinating to see if Haymon will use his diminishing PBC war chest to try to outbid Golovkins camp, which has support from HBO. But the networks budget appears to have taken a big hit this year. Tomas Nosek Jersey . -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago. Malcolm Subban Jersey . - Chris Tierney snapped a tie with a power-play goal late in the third period as the London Knights rallied from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Erie Otters 5-3 in Ontario Hockey League action on Wednesday. http://www.cheapgoldenknightsjerseyschina.com/james-neal-jersey/ . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. William Karlsson Jersey . Durant finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds, Jackson matched his career high with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Lamb scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, lifting the Thunder to a 94-88 win over San Antonio and snapping the Spurs 11-game winning streak. Cody Eakin Jersey . -- Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was selected Monday to his second straight Pro Bowl, while guard Kyle Long made it after a solid rookie season. The 2016 Summer Olympics came to an end Sunday night with a closing ceremony in Rio that had a little of everything: samba dancers, giant parrots, Simone Biles carrying the American flag, an encore from Tongas greased-up flag-bearer Pita Nikolas Taufatofua, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe emerging from a huge green warp pipe dressed as Super Mario.Team USA marched with extra swagger, winning the medal count for the sixth straight Summer Games. The Americans not only led the way with 121 medals, they also led in every medal category -- gold, silver and bronze -- for the seventh time in Olympic history and first since 1948.Doing a great deal of the heavy lifting for America, once again, were the women, accounting for 61 of the countrys medals. The men won 55, and five were won in mixed events. That the American women out--earned the men for a second straight Games is particularly impressive considering that just 44 percent of the medals given out in Rio were in womens events.From Biles and Katie Ledecky to Claressa Shields and Kim Rhode, the U.S. women absolutely dominated. In fact, if Team USA were divided into separate mens and womens teams, the ladies 61 medals would be third overall at the Games, behind only the combined mens and womens efforts of Great Britain and China. Their 27 golds would be tied for first with Great Britain.The success of Americas female Olympians is due, in part, to the passing of Title IX in 1972. The law barred discrimination in education, greatly impacting athletic programs for women and girls from collegiate levels on down.Title IX paved the way and created so many opportunities for women in sport, nine--time Olympic medalist Allyson Felix told the United States Olympic Committee. I feel so proud and so inspired by the strong women on our team. Its such an amazing group to be a part of and I think about all the images of successful women reaching young girls back at home --- those are the things that last.Indeed, the Olympics are a rare time when viewers take in neaarly as many images of female athletes as male.dddddddddddd A time when the accomplishments of female athletes are given the same weight as those of their male counterparts. America seemed particularly enchanted with the achievements of the female gymnasts, swimmers and runners, who captured countless headlines and tons of airtime. And if fans wanted to watch events that might not make primetime --say, womens wrestling or weightlifting ?they could live stream them online. It was the most access viewers have had to Olympic events.With each medal won, the U.S. women demanded more and more of the spotlight. Yes, sometimes the coverage they received wasnt as winning as their athletic achievements, but even in those moments of misogyny, some progress could be found. Caitlin Kelly, managing editor of Vice Sports, spoke on my podcast about how the strong reaction to the sexist coverage is a win.One thing that was ... encouraging was seeing that people are pointing it out, Kelly said. I think more and more people have the language now to be able to point it out and to be able to discuss why its problematic and why portraying female athletes in the same way that male athletes have always been portrayed is so important.I think theres definitely progress being made, Kelly continued. People are more aware, maybe, of what we want our sports world to look like. And feel more empowered through social media and have a platform to say what we think people should be focusing on when they talk about women in sports.On Sunday night, in a sea of Olympians, Biles stood out, despite her 4-foot-9 frame. She was inundated with photo requests from American teammates and athletes from other countries, as well. In a stadium full of literal and figurative giants, a small but powerful female athlete was the star, and the respect her fellow competitors showed her should be an example for fans and media.
