Manfredo fights for WBC middleweight title Saturday

November 14, 2011

PAWTUCKET --- Fights don’t get any bigger or significant than the one Peter Manfredo Jr. has on Saturday night.
If the Manfredo’s Gym middleweight beats undefeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. at Houston’s Reliant Arena, he will take home Chavez’s WBC (World Boxing Council) championship belt and be in line for a huge payday in the form of an expected title defense against former WBC champion Sergio Martinez.

Patriots end slump, rout Jets

November 14, 2011

Associated Press
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Two straight losses were too many for Tom Brady.

He and the New England Patriots weren't used to struggling or hearing people wondering if they're no longer the powerhouse they've been for years. Well, just like that, they're back in a familiar spot: all alone at the top of the AFC East.

Brady threw three touchdown passes, including two to Rob Gronkowski, and the Patriots assumed sole possession of first place in the division with a convincing 37-16 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday night.
