    导出博客文章Mexicos Juan Francisco Estrada, who held unified flyweight world titles for 3?
    years, is leaving the division behind.The 26-year-old Estrada (33-2, 24 KOs) has
    not fought since last September, mainly because of a severe right hand injury,
    but he announced on Tuesday at a news conference that he would return to the
    ring on Oct. 8 (beIN Sports Espanol) as a junior bantamweight.Estrada will face
    Raymond Tabugon (18-5-1, 8 KOs), 25, of the Philippines, in a scheduled 10-round
    fight at Francisco Leon Garcia Stadium in Puerto Penasco, Mexico.The WBA
    announced last week that Estrada vacated its 112-pound title. He also has
    vacated his WBO version of the belt, according to WBO general secretary Jose
    Izquierdo II.Estrada formally vacated his WBO title on Sept. 13, citing that he
    could no longer make weight, Izquierdo told losing a highly
    competitive decision in a slugfest against Roman Chocolatito Gonzalez in a 2012
    junior flyweight title fight, Estrada moved up to flyweight and won a split
    decision against Brian Viloria to claim two flyweight belts in March
    2013.Estrada made five title defenses of the unified title. He beat opponents
    such as former world titleholders Giovani Segura and Hernan Tyson Marquez, as
    well as top contender Milan Melindo.Now Estrada will move up to the 115-pound
    junior bantamweight division, where an eventual rematch with Gonzalez (46-0, 38
    KOs) is possible. On Sept. 10, Gonzalez -- the pound-for-pound king and
    flyweight champion -- moved up to the weight class and outpointed Carlos Cuadras
    to win a world title in his fourth weight division.A rematch between Gonzalez
    and Estrada would be one of the biggest fights that could be made in boxings
    smaller weight divisions.I will win and analyze with my team and my promoter
    Zanfer possible fights against Chocolatito, Naoya Inoue and [Luis] Nica
    Conception, Estrada said. Im looking for big fights.

    .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse
    connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach.
    PHILADELPHIA -- Orlando Magic coach Frank Vogel had a simple trick to help his
    team get over a brutal loss in Memphis the previous night.I let them sleep in,
    Vogel said.Aaron Gordon scored a season-high 20 points, Nikola Vucevic had 12
    points, 11 rebounds and five assists and the Magic awoke from its slumber to
    cruise by the Philadelphia 76ers 105-88 in a matchup of slumping Eastern
    Conference teams Friday night.Serge Ibaka, Evan Fournier and Jeff Green all
    added 16 points for the Magic (8-12), who had lost five of six coming in,
    including a one-point loss to the Grizzlies on Thursday in which they blew a
    14-point fourth-quarter lead.I thought we played well last night and we just
    didnt close the game out, Vogel said. Were continuing to show we have one of the
    top defenses in the league. Were going to be a great defensive team and were
    going to score enough to win.Bismack Biyombo had 13 rebounds for the Grizzlies,
    who shot 50 percent from 3-point range and 47.4 percent from the field.The
    Sixers (4-15) lost their fifth straight despite 25 points and 10 rebounds from
    rookie Joel Embiid. It was his fifth double-double of the season.Jahlil Okafor,
    who saw extended action with Embiid for the first time this season, also had a
    double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds.Nobody else scored in double
    figures for the Sixers, who shot 37.9 percent from the field. They missed 20 of
    their 26 shot attempts in the first quarter and allowed the Magic to go on an
    early 16-0 run to fall behind for good.Sometimes you read so much into
    back-to-backs, Sixers coach Brett Brown said. You assume people are tired or
    depressed because they lost at the buzzer. I give them credit. They came in and
    played with great energy. I dont know how to explain that.The game was the first
    for the rested Sixers in four days after Wednesdays scheduled matchup against
    the Sacramento Kings was postponed because of moisture on the Wells Fargo Center
    court.TIP-INSMagic: Orlando was back in the same building where it overcame an
    18-point deficit in a 103-101 win over the Sixers a little more than a month
    ago. The Magic have won four straight vs. Philly. ... The Magic havee two games
    left of a five-game trip.dddddddddddd.76ers: Robert Covington left in the fourth
    quarter with a left knee sprain after logging nine points and six rebounds. ...
    PG Jerryd Bayless missed his third straight game with left wrist soreness after
    previously sitting out the first 13 games.THE EMBIID-OKAFOR EXPERIMENTEmbiid and
    Okafor looked sharp when paired together as the crowd roared in delight watching
    the two cornerstones of the franchises rebuilding effort. In the second quarter,
    Embiid hit a 3-pointer, fed Okafor for a basket and then hit a jumper to pull
    the Sixers within 23-21.During their second stint together in the fourth
    quarter, the two centers produced 12 of the teams 19 points while combining to
    shoot 5 for 5 from the field in just over 7 minutes.I thought we had our
    moments, said Embiid, who had his minutes restriction increased from 24 to 28
    two days after being named the NBAs Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for
    October/November. We made shots. Obviously we need to play more together.MEEKS
    BIG RETURNMagic guard Jodie Meeks made his season debut after a foot injury held
    him out for the first 19 games. He finished with 10 points and three steals in
    17 minutes, while shooting 2 for 3 from 3-point range.Vogel didnt think it was a
    coincidence that the sharpshooters return coincided with Orlandos best shooting
    night of the season.Its contagious, I guess, Vogel said. It was good to see him
    back out there. He was a little rusty in certain areas but thats to be expected.
    But he looked a lot less rusty than I thought he would.CLUTCH SHOOTING (AND
    PASSING)The Magic put the game away in the third quarter thanks to consecutive
    3s from D.J. Augustin followed by one from Gordon -- shots Vogel called
    pivotal.Gordon, who shot 9 for 14 from the field and 2 for 4 from 3-point range,
    credited the teams passing for all of the baskets.I think our passing was very
    good tonight, he said. We were on time and on target.UP NEXTMagic: At Detroit on
    Sunday night.76ers: Host Boston on Saturday night. ' ' '
