Shumenov wins interim cruiserweight title

LAS VEGAS (AP) Beibut Shumenov scored a unanimous but unpopular decision over B.J. Flores to win the WBA interim cruiserweight title on Saturday night.

The fight was the second at the 200-pound cruiserweight limit for Shumenov, who held the light heavyweight belt from 2010 to 2013 but moved up because of problems making weight.

All three judges scored the fight 116-112 for Shumenov, but the decision was roundly booed by the crowd at The Palms Casino Resort.
