ive wins but Atalanta was expected to get
MONACO -- Cuban boxer Luis Ortiz easily beat Malik Scott for the vacant WBA intercontinental heavyweight title on Saturday.Making his European debut, Ortiz floored the listless Scott several times and won by a unanimous decision: 120-105, 120-106, and 119-106 on the judges cards.He improved his unbeaten record to 26-0 with two no contests, and consigned Scott to a third defeat in 42 bouts, with one drawn.Scott, whose other two losses were against fellow American Deontay Wilder and Britains Dereck Chisora, once held a 35-0 record, and his quick feet, craft, and elusiveness were a credit to his boxing pedigree. But he hardly threw a punch against Ortiz, and was knocked down twice in the fourth round, once in the fifth, and once in the ninth.Scott did catch Ortiz with a couple of flashing right hooks, but did not do enough.The 37-year-old Ortiz has signed with promoter Eddie Hearn, meaning he could fight IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, although he will need to up his game if he does.In a far more exciting fight on the undercard, American Jason Sosa retained his WBA super featherweight title with a unanimous verdict against Britains Stephen Smith after a ferocious 12 rounds.Although Sosa won 116-111; 117-110, and 116-112, Smith fought for much of the bout with a deep cut above his right eye and blood streaming down his face.He was floored in the second round and sustained the cut in the next. But he kept fighting, repeatedly catching Sosa with sharp blows and the Americans right eye also swelled late on.Both fighters excelled, especially with uppercuts, going toe-to-toe in each round of a brilliant contest. Sosa had the edge in punching power.The mutual respect between the two fighters was clear to see as they raised each others hands up and hugged several times at the end.It was Smiths third loss in 27 contests, while Sosa recorded his 20th win, with one loss and four draws.Also, Britains Jamie McDonnell defended his WBA bantamweight title for the fifth time by beating Venezuelas Liborio Solis.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling "puts an end to my dreams of being a top player," the 27-year-old Troicki said in a statement. "I worked my entire life for it, and it has been taken away from me in one afternoon by a doctor I didnt know," said Troicki, whose ranking peaked at No. MILAN -- Gonzalo Higuain celebrated his birthday weekend with two goals as he helped Juventus to a 3-1 victory at Torino in a thrilling derby match on Sunday.Goals from two of the best strikers in European football looked like ensuring the Derby della Mole would end with honors even. Higuain canceled out Andrea Belottis opener for Torino, with both scoring on their first opportunity.But Higuain doubled his tally in the 83rd minute and substitute Miralem Pjanic sealed the result in stoppage time.Juventus moved seven points clear of second-placed Roma and AC Milan, which play each other on Monday.It was a special match, Higuain said. We were losing, we were in difficulty but after we equalized we stayed in control and in the end we won. Winning the derby, scoring and having a good team performance was a lovely birthday present.Is it a message for Roma and Milan? We did our job, we had to win and we did so. What they do tomorrow is their problem.Juventus hosts Roma next Saturday.There was a passionate atmosphere at the Stadio Olimpico and the home supporters were furious when Belotti was brought down by Daniele Rugani, as he was about to run clear through on goal, but the referee waved play on.Mario Mandzukic had two chances in quick succession for Juventus but sent a free header wide and then had another attempt kept out by a sensational save from England goalkeeper Joe Hart.Belotti broke the deadlock moments later, in the 16th. Davide Zappacosta burst down the right flank and threaded the ball through to Daniele Baselli, who crossed for Belotti to head into the bottom left corner.It was the 22-year-old Italy forwards fifth goal in as many matches.Higuain leveled in the 28th, running onto Mandzukics through ball and into the area before firing into the bottom left corner.Torino had the better of the chances in the second half and should have retaken the lead on the hour but Marco Benassis effort was blocked by Mandzukic and Iago Falque volleyed the rebound wide.Adem Ljajic also went close in the 73rd but curled an attempt inches wide of the right post.Torino was made to pay for its missed opportunities as Higuain fired Juventus in front seven minutes from time. The Argentine controlled the ball before swiveling and firing through the legs of Torino defender Antonio Barreca and into the bottom left corner.It was the ninth goal of the season for Higuain, who turned 29 on Saturday. The Argentine moved up to fourth in the goalsscoring table, two behind third-placed Belotti.dddddddddddd.Torino strove to get the equalizer but was caught out by another counterattack and Paulo Dybalas pass sent Higuain through. Hart pulled off a fantastic save and did so again to deny Pjanic but the Bosnia and Herzegovina international tapped in the rebound.---CAGLIARI 0, NAPOLI 5Dries Mertens netted a hat trick as Napoli equaled its biggest Serie A away win.Confidence was high at Napoli after ending a poor run of results with a crushing victory at Inter Milan and qualifying for the Champions League knockout stage.Mertens opened the scoring in the 34th with a delightful swiveling shot into the far corner, and Marek Hamsik doubled Napolis lead on the stroke of halftime, tapping in the rebound after Lorenzo Insigne headed onto the crossbar.Napoli started the second half as it had ended the first and Piotr Zielinski extended the visitors lead six minutes after the restart with a powerful effort into the bottom left corner.Napoli was running riot and Mertens doubled his tally in the 69th before completing his hat trick three minutes later.---INTER MILAN 2, GENOA 0Marcelo Brozovic continued his fine run of form with two goals to help Inter move into eighth.Brozovic netted his first goal six minutes from time when the Croatia midfielder volleyed the ball low into the bottom right corner.Genoa had looked the stronger team until that point with two attempts cleared off the line.Inter doubled its lead in the 69th following a great run from Joao Mario down the left and into the area before crossing for Brozovic, who fired powerfully home.Inter moved a point below Torino, and one above Fiorentina, which hosts Sassuolo on Monday.---OTHER MATCHESAtalanta fell to its second straight defeat as it surprisingly lost 3-1 at home to Udinese.Defeat at Juventus last week had ended a run of seven successive wins but Atalanta was expected to get back on track.Atalanta dominated but Duvan Zapata gave Udinese an unexpected lead -- completely against the run of play -- on the stroke of halftime.Jasmin Kurtic leveled but Seko Fofana restored Udineses lead in one of its rare attacks and Cyril Thereau sealed matters late on.Elsewhere, Sergio Pellissier scored his 100th Serie A goal to help Chievo Verona beat bottom club Palermo 2-0, and Bologna drew 0-0 with Empoli.
