Paulie Malignaggi wants to see David Morrell defend his WBA ‘regular’ super middleweight title against former IBF champ Caleb Plant to test him. It’s a fight where both guys can put themself in position for a big match-up against undisputed champion Canelo Alvarez or David Benavidez, the two most popular fighters in the 168-lb division.

The Eagles’ fall following their 10-1 start to the 2023 NFL season remains one of the most perplexing shifts in recent history. The decline started after Philadelphia stunningly lost 42-19 at home to the 49ers on Dec. 3, a result that seemingly had a ripple effect. Beyond it being a matchup of two of the NFL’s heavyweights, it was a game that saw Eagles staffer Dom DiSandro ejected after a sideline quarrel with linebacker Dre Greenlaw.
