The afternoon begins from the U.K. with a key heavyweight battle between former unified cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk in his first test at heavyweight against veteran gatekeeper Derek Chisora.
Usyk, who is the mandatory contender in the WBO ratings, has fought once as a heavyweight, stopping journeyman Chazz Witherspoon and will be tested against Chisora, a respected gatekeeper who has fought many top heavyweights including Vitali Klitschko. Tyson Fury twice, Dillian Whyte twice, David Haye, and Kubrat Pulev.
Seferi is best remembered for being the first fighter to face Tyson Fury after Fury returned to the ring following his hiatus from boxing in a fourth round loss that resembled a pro wrestling show more than a boxing match.
Cruz earned his biggest win in his last fight with a majority decision win over Thomas Mattice.

I haven't been excited about college football as much since half of the game was on hiatus from their decision on how to deal with Covid-19.
Still, the time is right with all the conferences playing now, so I'll be doing "Herbie" weekly or until things shut down again.

Mayfield finished the afternoon with 297 yards passing with those five touchdowns to four different receivers.
Rookie tight end Harrison Bryant caught two of those scoring passes and Rashard Higgins grabbed all six of the passes thrown to him for 110 yards.
Kareem Hunt led the Browns in rushing with 76 yards in the victory that boosted the Browns to 5-2 on the season and in playoff contention.

In the main event, welterweights Sergey Lipinets and late replacement Custio Clayton battled to a majority decision draw for an interim IBF belt that was planned so long ago that at that time, the organization didn't know the status of their champion Errol Spence and Spence will fight in early December against Danny Garcia.
Wilson is going to improve with time (this was his first game moving inside to the slot position) and here is the problem for the opposing defenses- Wilson is going to be too fast to be covered by linebackers and perhaps too strong for slot corners, creating a nightmare in coverage for the opponent.

The Browns would leave Pittsburgh with a 38-7 beating that some teams never recover from and with many doubts about the immediate future.
Baker Mayfield threw for the only Browns score when he tossed a thirteen-yard pass to Rashard Higgins in the second quarter, but Mayfield also threw two interceptions, one of which Minkah Fitzpatrick returned for a score and finished with a mere 119 yards.
Cleveland slips to 4-2 with the defeat and will complete their AFC North road schedule next week in Cincinnati against the 1-4-1 Bengals.
