CARSON, Calif. -- Kell Brook waited years for a world title shot, honing his skills through numerous injuries and postponements. When the English welterweight finally got in the ring with a champion, the patient challenger had a perfect plan. Brook won a majority decision over Shawn Porter on Saturday night, claiming Porters IBF 147-pound title. "Since I was 9 years old, Ive been training to be a champion," said Brook, who collapsed to the ring in joy after the decision was announced. "I looked scrappy, but I did what I have to do." Brook (33-0) claimed the welterweight belt in just his second fight outside Britain, outboxing the American champion with a smart game plan and consistent elusiveness at the outdoor StubHub Center south of Los Angeles. Brook joined elite company with the win: Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao hold the other three major welterweight titles. "I dealt with business," Brook said. "Its an unbelievable feeling, and I cant get my head around it." With a small coterie of English fans cheering his moves, Brook stayed outside the champions power range and held inside when necessary, never allowing Porter (24-1-1) to find a consistent range in his first defeat. Brook won 117-111 and 116-112 on two American judges cards, while English judge Dave Parris scored it a 114-114 draw. The Associated Press saw it 115-113 for Brook. Omar Figueroa also stopped Daniel Estrada early in the ninth round to defend his WBC lightweight title belt in an entertaining action fight, and Anthony Dirrell claimed Sakio Bikas WBC 168-pound title with a messy rematch victory. But the star was Brook, who had been waiting nearly two years for his shot at the IBF belt. Three bouts against former champion Devon Alexander fell through before he received the mandatory title shot at Porter, who beat Alexander last year. Brook had a canny game plan from the start, keeping Porter at bay with his superior reach and landing well-timed shots when Porter attempted to force the action. Both fighters were cut early on by accidental head-butts, but the injuries didnt appear to affect them. Brook became more assertive in the later rounds, stalking Porter to the ropes while landing cleaner punches. The Englishman connected with several big shots in a dominant 11th round and finished impressively, getting carried on his cornermens shoulders after the final bell. Brook landed 36 per cent of his 441 punches, while Porter connected with just 25 per cent of his 626 shots. Brook thoroughly outjabbed Porter, who threw 308 more power punches, but landed a much lower percentage. Porter, who never landed his vicious left hook consistently, wasnt surprised by the decision in his first bout since a dominant defence against Paulie Malignaggi in April. "I thought that I was effective with my attack, but he was ready," Porter said. "Im not giving any excuses. I want the rematch. Ill find him where hes at, and Ill take it from him." Brook is much more interested in a lucrative matchup with fellow British champion Amir Khan, who tweeted his congratulations to Brook moments after the fight ended. "Shawn Porter is a true champion, but I think Khan can get in queue now," Brook said. "I think that the British public needs to see this fight against Khan." Dirrell (27-0-1), a lymphoma survivor from Flint, Michigan, claimed his first world title in a sloppy, flop-filled rematch with Bika (32-6-3), a Cameroon native fighting out of Australia. Dirrell tumbled to the canvas several times in the second bout, and Bika was docked a point in the eighth round. "It means the world to me, coming off cancer," said Dirrell, who also survived a serious motorcycle accident in recent years. "I was staying off the ropes. I outpunched him, I outlanded him and I got the job done." Figueroa (24-0-1, 18 KOs), a rising star from Texas, put on another crowd-pleasing display against Estrada (25-3-1). Both fighters traded enormous shots in an exciting eighth round, but Figueroa dropped Estrada with one devastating right hand early in the ninth before finishing the bout with a lengthy flurry of punches. Figueroa intends to move up to 140 pounds for his next bout. Unbeaten heavyweight Deontay Wilder (32-0, 32 KOs) stopped Jason Gavern after four rounds in an early fight, shutting down an overmatched opponent to keep busy while he waits for his mandated shot at injured WBC champion Bermane Stiverne.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State quarterback and Heisman hopeful Jameis Winston will not face any charges in a sexual assault case, mostly because there were too many gaps in his accusers story, a prosecutor said Thursday. State Attorney Willie Meggs said the womans memory lapses about the events last December were problematic and there was not enough evidence to win a conviction. "Its not inconsistencies, its lack of memory most of the time," Meggs said. The woman told police she had been drinking at a bar with friends and went home with a man she didnt know. She said she the alleged assault took place at an off-campus apartment, but she couldnt remember where it was. A month later, she identified her alleged attacker as the quarterback. Winstons attorney said the sex was consensual. The quarterback said in a statement he was relieved. "Its been difficult to stay silent through this process, but I never lost faith in the truth and in who I am," Winston said. The alleged assault happened long before Winston became a star on the national stage. Reports about an investigation didnt surface in the public until last month, as the redshirt freshman was well into a remarkable season with Florida State. Winston, 19, has led the Seminoles to a No. 1 ranking and a shot at a national championship if they defeat Duke on Saturday in the ACC title game. As for the Heisman, many voters were waiting to see whether he would be charged before casting their ballot. The deadline is Monday and Winston is considered a leading contender for the trophy for the nations top player. It will be awarded Dec. 14. The accusers family has been sharply critical of the Tallahassee Police Department, accusing the agency of delaying the investigation and discouraging her from going forward with the case because of the public attention it would receive. "The victim has grave concerns that her experience, as it unfolded in the public eye and through social media, will discourage other victims of rape from coming forward and reporting," according to a statement from the accuser and her family. The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault. On Thursday, specific details of the alleged assault were released. The woman told police she and friends were drinking at Potbellys and said she remembered getting into a cab with a man she didnt know. At the apartment, she said she tried to fight the man off, but he wouldnt stop. At some point, she said another man came into the room and told her attacker to stop, but he didnt. Her next memory was of the suspect dressing her, putting her on a scooter and dropping her off at a campus intersection. Once she got back to her room, she called police and later went to the hospital. Police said they opened an investigation and were collecting evidence when they were told in February she didnt want to pursue the charges. The womans attornney has denied she wanted to drop the investigation.dddddddddddd Winston refused to be interviewed by police and has not answered questions from the media. Two of his teammates backed his story in statements they gave last month to an investigator for the quarterbacks attorney, Timothy Jansen. The statements were part of an investigative file released Thursday. Teammates Christopher Casher and Ronald Darby said they were at Potbellys with Winston when the accuser struck up a conversation with the quarterback and got into the cab with the three men. Once at the apartment, the teammates said they peeked through Winstons bedroom door and saw the woman having sex with the quarterback. At one point, Casher said he "busted into the room to embarrass Jameis" and the girl yelled at him to "get out." In a later interview with police, Casher changed this part of his story, saying he went into the room because he hoped the woman would also have sex with him, something he said had happened in the past when he and Winston brought a woman to the apartment. Casher left the room and was not accused of having sex with the woman, and no other women have made accusations against Casher or Darby. Meggs office took over the case last month. Investigators interviewed the accuser, other witnesses and collected evidence before the prosecutor made his decision. He said the womans blood-alcohol content at the hospital was .04 and investigators estimated it to be about .10 at the time of the incident, based on the amount of time that had passed. The legal limit to drive in Florida is .08. They also took DNA from Winston and matched it to DNA collected from the womans underwear. DNA on her shorts matched her boyfriend at the time. The accusers family has said they pushed police to take a DNA sample from Winston earlier in the investigation, only to be told by a police detective that it would alert Winston and make the case public. The family said the accusers attorney, Patricia Carroll, was warned by police that Tallahassee is a "big football town, and the victim needs to think long and hard before proceeding against him because she will be raked over the coals and her life will be made miserable." Tallahassee police have defended their handling of the case. The alleged victim was an FSU student, but she left school last month as media reports of the case surfaced. Meggs said when his office spoke with the woman last month, she wanted the case to move forward. At a restaurant on campus, students high-fived one another and did the Seminoles chant and tomahawk chop when Meggs said no charges would be filed. "Its been a tough couple weeks," said Justin Savage, a 21-year-old senior sports management major from Fort Walton Beach. "Im just so grateful. Hes just so lovable a guy. You can see him on campus and hell talk to you, it doesnt matter who you are." ' ' '
