With the IBF on the verge of withdrawing lightweight championship recognition from Oscar De La Hoya for not fighting its No. 1 contender, the fighter relinquished the IBF 135-pound title.

The IBF ordered De La Hoya to defend against top-ranked Miguel Julio of Colombia this month or be stripped of the title by Aug. 1.

A judge has overturned a portion of an arbitration award that ordered Salt Lake Buzz owner Joe Buzas to settle with the Trappers baseball club.

Third District Judge Homer F. Wilkinson ruled that the amount of money Buzas was to pay to the former Salt Lake Trappers should be reduced by $400,000 - from $552,152 to $152,152.
