Juan Diazs injury has opened the door for up-and-comer Mason Menard.Diaz, a 33-year-old former unified lightweight titleholder, was scheduled to face former lightweight title challenger Raymundo Beltran on the undercard of unified junior welterweight champion Terence Crawfords title defense against John Molina on Dec. 10 (HBO, 9:35 p.m. ET/PT) at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska.However, Diaz has withdrawn from the bout and been replaced by Menard in the scheduled 10-round bout, Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti told ESPN on Monday.Diaz has been hampered by a herniated disc in his neck as well as either herniated discs in his back or a rib injury. Brian Caldwell, Diazs manager, told ESPN that Diaz was awaiting results of an MRI he had Friday to determine the specific nature of his back problem.He was sparring last Tuesday getting ready for the fight, and he missed a hook and fell to his knees, Caldwell said. He was in pain. He said, Oh, my back! Hopefully, well know more in the next couple of days, but he is disappointed to have to pull out of this fight. I think he would have torn Beltran up. He was excited about being back on HBO.Diaz (42-4, 21 KOs), of Houston, unified three lightweight world titles during his 2004 to 2008 reign but retired in 2010 before launching a comeback. He was scheduled to fight for a lightweight world title but suffered a shoulder injury that required surgery, costing him 18 months, including all of 2015.He returned to action and won both of his fights this year before this latest setback, which could send him into retirement again.He doesnt have to do this for the money, he just loves to fight, so hes taking this a little hard, Caldwell said. But if he never fights again, he still won those world titles, made a lot of good fights and made some good money.With Diaz out, Moretti said he has made a deal with promoter Greg Cohen for Menard to take his place.Everything is agreed to, Moretti said. Were putting everything to paper.Menard (32-1, 24 KOs), 28, of Rayne, Louisiana, will take on his most formidable opponent in Beltran (31-7-1, 19 KOs), 35.Beltran, a Mexico native based in Phoenix, earned a mandatory shot at then-lightweight world champion Crawford in November 2014 but lost by near-shutout decision.Crawford later relinquished the title to move up in weight, and Beltran was due to face Japans Takahiro Ao for the vacant belt in May 2015. However, Beltran did not make weight, so the belt was on the line only for Ao. Beltran won by second-round knockout and the title remained vacant, but after he failed the postfight drug test for a banned substance, the result was changed to a no-decision and Beltran was fined and suspended. After a year of being idle, Beltran returned in May and has won both fights since his suspension ended.In addition to televising the live Crawford-Molina and Beltran-Menard bouts, Top Rank has also made a deal with HBO to add same-day recorded coverage of the vacant heavyweight world title bout between Joseph Parker and Andy Ruiz Jr., whom Top Rank promotes, as the opener of an expanded telecast.Parker (21-0, 18 KOs), 24, and the 27-year-old Ruiz (29-0, 19 KOs), who are squaring off for one of the title belts vacated by Tyson Fury, will meet at Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand, Parkers home country.

The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. .4 million title. Ryan Riess emerged with the title after a session in which he started behind, but used expert skill to gather the chips to his side amid the unpredictability of no-limit Texas Hold em. Riess put his final opponent Jay Farber all-in with an Ace-King. Lebron 15 Low Red . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. Adidas Basketball Shoes Sale . Clarke was injured while practicing on the Doha Golf Club range after the pro-am on Tuesday. The Northern Irishman arrived at the course on Wednesday hoping to start, but after hitting a few balls on the practice putting green Clarke advised officials he was not fit to play.Jordan Spieth believes the hard work he put in after an early exit from the Players Championship is paying off after a much-improved start to the week at the AT&T Byron Nelson. The 22-year-old missed the cut at TPC Sawgrass last week in his first event since a final-round collapse at the Masters, but he has made a strong start in Texas by following an opening-round 64 with a five-under 65 on Friday.Spieth mixed six birdies with a solitary bogey at TPC Four Seasons, a course he has notoriously struggled at over the years, giving him the early clubhouse second-round lead with Brooks Koepka. Jordan Spieth posted six birdies during his round The world No 2 has not finished inside the top-25 in the event since a tie for 16th as an amateur in 2010, but feels the extra work put in with coach Cameron Mccormick this week has brought a marked improvement. Its very gratifying, Spieth told the PGA Tours featured group coverage. I have complete trust in Camerons (Mccormick) eye and he has the trust that Im going to put in the work to get to a point where were successful.Sometimes thats not the next week but fortunately, this week it is. Most of our work has been on the greens, and that has shown today. Spieth carded four birdies in a five-hole stretch I feel a little loose with mmy iron play and even some of my wedges, and the proximity to the hole from a lot of the positions Ive been playing hasnt been where I want it.ddddddddddddWeve made up for it with the putter thus far and if we can tone that down a little bit and keep the putter hot, well be in good shape.After missing a 10-footer for birdie at the 11th, Spieth picked up a shot from a similar distance at the next but gave it straight back with a three-putt bogey at the short 13th. Spieths last victory came in Januarys Hyundai Tournament of Champions The world No 2 drained a 20-footer at the 14th and made a move up the leaderboard with a hat-trick of gains from the 16th to reach the turn in 31.A run of close-range pars came to an end with a two-putt birdie at the par-five seventh, before Spieth closed a bogey-free second nine and set the clubhouse target by holing from 10 feet to save par at the ninth. The 13th Ive three-putted twice in a row now and then I ended up in a really tough spot on 14, Spieth added. Ive been on that spot every year and made bogeys, made doubles and made pars, but finally made a birdie out of that.It was a really nice break to get some momentum for sure.Watch the AT&T Byron Nelson throughout the weekend live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: AT&T Byron Nelson leaders Garcia makes bright start First round highlights Golf live on Sky Sports Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jersyes Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
