PASCAL READY TO PUT BOSSE'S BOXING CAREER ON ICE
B H. K. Leon

What made you decide to unretire to fight Steve Bosse? I went into my last fight wanting to end my career on a high note, by going into the hometown of an undefeated hungry young lion (Ahmed Elbiali) and tearing him apart and that's just what I did. I was very content with my decision to retire afterwards, but after I got home everywhere I went the fans were asking me to fight again in Quebec, they wanted more. Then I sat down with my team and my family and everybody agreed that I've still got plenty left in the tank and I can end my career on an even higher note, with a championship belt around my waist. This fight with Bosse is happening because he was calling me out all over social media and in the papers here, so on Friday night he's going to get what he was asking for and then we're going to see what's next.

POST FIGHT INTERVIEW: REGIS PROGRAIS
By G. Leon

Rougarou off to Moscow for WBSS announcement

Congratulations on another great victory. Can you give us some thoughts on your performance? I feel like I didn't perform as I good as I could have. Of course I'm never going to give myself a 10 out of 10, but I went out there and got the job done. The dude was real tough and I know he wasn't known coming in, but he's going to be well known coming out of that fight. He was game and he was tougher than...I don't want to say tougher than I expected, but he was really tough. He showed that he belonged in there and I feel like I performed good for my home crowd. I didn't get the early knockout this time, but I performed well and I did what I wanted to do in front of my hometown crowd. I got hit a little too much, but at the same time sometimes people want to see that.

MANNY PACQUIAO DESTROYS LUCAS MATTHYSSE FOR FIRST STOPPAGE WIN IN 9 YEARS!
By G. Leon

Manny Pacquiao TKO7 Lucas Matthysse: Former eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao turned back the hands of time in Malaysia tonight as he easily battered former WBC 140-pound titleholder Lucas Matthysse from pillar to post over seven terribly one-sided rounds. In the third round, Pacquiao (60-7-2 with 39 KOs) landed a left uppercut that sent the bearded Argentine down. Matthysse beat the count but it was clear that Pacquiao was on his A game. It was a check hook in the final seconds of round five that sent Matthysse down on a delayed reaction. In round seven, Pacquiao floored Matthysse with another left uppercut and referee Kenny Bayless stopped the fight midway through his count when Matthysse spit out his mouthpiece. With the win Pacquiao gets the WBA regular title, putting him in line to fight WBA super champion Keith Thurman-- though it's highly doubtful that bout ever comes to fruition. Source: ESPN+

TEOFIMO LOPEZ SENSATIONAL IN STEP-UP BOUT
By G. Leon

Teofimo Lopez TKO6 William Silva: Few have shined brighter in a step-up bout than undefeated lightweight Teofimo Lopez did in tonight's ESPN opener. Lopez (10-0 with 8KOs) was in control from the opening bell and looked to be having a blast in there as he tagged William Silva with left hooks, right hands and a couple of jumping punches. Silva was decked three times in total, the first came in the opening frame when it looked like Lopez would make it a very early night. However, the twenty year old got a bit sloppy and failed to finish.  In the closing seconds of round, five Lopez landed two straight left hooks around Silva's guard that floored him for a nine count. Silva] (25-2 with 12KOs) made it to his stool where the fight should have been stopped, but his corner let him out for the sixth round. It didn't take Lopez long to finish Silva off this time. A series of punches through and around Silva's guard floored him for the final time in the opening seconds of round six. The referee immediately stopped the fight without a count and the celebration began. First Lopez mimicked hitting a home run and ran around the ring as though they were bases and when he made it home he broke out the Orange Justice dance from the popular Fortnite game. Official time of stoppage was 0:15. Source: ESPN

Edited Press Release: The second fight of Tyson Fury’s comeback will happen on August 18th at Windsor Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland on the undercard of the Carl Frampton vs. Luke Jackson featherweight main event.
