The break-up of Britain's Olympic boxing squad continued yesterday when the bronze medal-winning light-heavyweight Tony "Jaffa" Jeffries turned professional with northern promoter Dennis Hobson. Jeffries, 23, sealed a six-figure deal on the Sunderland pitch at half-time during the game against Bolton and will make his pro debut in January. But after witnessing his club's 4-1 battering he handed out one of his own, to the ABA, claiming he had not been paid a promised £5,000 bonus after Beijing and threatening legal action. The ABA insist the bonus scheme had already been withdrawn, but Jeffries says: "We have all been badly let down." Middleweight golden boy James DeGale and welterweight Billy Joe Saunders are due to sign for Frank Warren in London on Tuesday.

Today's American football match at Wembley between the NFL's New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers takes place with the spectre of a major drugs bust hangingover it. Two of the Saints, it transpires, may well be sinners, having been named as allegedly testing positive for a banned diuretic that can also mask the use of steroids. However, running back Deuce McAllister and defensive end Will Smith will still be in the line-up, as results of their B samples have yet to be confirmed. The pair were among several players cited in a US television report. The NFL decline to comment, but point out that they conduct rigorous dope checks, with 10 players tested after every game.
