 YATHOMAS RILEY INDICTED FOR MURDER

According to the Albany (Georgia) Herald, light heavyweight Yahtomas Riley was indicted last week for the murder of hs wife, Dr. Lisa Amodio Riley. Yathomas remains in jail for the July incident, in which he is also accused of locking the couple's son in a room with the mother's body overnight. Thomas nearly made the 2008 Olympic team and is 8-1 as a pro. He as touted as a top prospect from 2008-2010. At that time, Thomas was charged with shooting his then-girlfriend, Koketia King.

Riley had one comeback bout, but lost an eight-round decision to Lionell Thompson in 2013. He has not fought since then, and likely will remain in prison until a trial in 2016. -Scott Shaffer

CEJA STOPS RUIZ WITH COME-FROM-BEHIND KO

Julio Ceja KO5 Hugo Ruiz... In a sudden momentum swing, Julio Ceja turned the tables on Hugo Ruiz in violent fashion. Ruiz (35-3, 31 KOs) controlled the action early in their 122-pound clash at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, using his superior length and accurate punching to tame Ceja's aggression (30-1, 27 KOs). Ceja relentlessly charged at Ruiz with abandon, swinging wildly and repeatedly getting countered by Ruiz in the process. In round three, Ruiz dropped Ceja with a left hook. It looked like Ruiz might end things there, as he bulldozed Ceja into his corner, but Ceja was able to make it through the round. Then, in round five, Ceja crushed Ruiz with a massive left hand of his own, knocking him flat on his backside. Ruiz beat the count only to take even more of a beating, getting hammered on the ropes by a wild-eyed Ceja until the referee stopped the fight, resulting in a technical knockout for Ceja. The win gives Ceja the WBC interim title at 122 pounds, with Leo Santa Cruz still listed as champion even though he moved up to 126 pounds on the same show. source: Premiere Boxing Champions

 DEAN ON THE SCENE: WELTERWEIGHT BOUTS THAT SHOULD BE MADE
By Ben Dean

Fans are disappointed that Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s professed swan song is taking place against Andre Berto, who is not among the ten best in the welterweight division. Berto is just 3-3 in his last 6 bouts and was picked over a number of excellent boxers who could have faced Mayweather this September. Mayweather-Berto is a dud, at least on paper, but there are several excellent bouts that could take place in the 147-pound division.  In this article, I'll play matchmaker and share with the fans the sort of bouts I would make if I were all-powerful in boxing.  Let's take a look at the following welterweight bouts that should happen this fall...

TOUCHING EXCHANGE BETWEEN TERRY NORRIS AND DR. MARGARET GOODMAN

Former world champion Terry Norris is only 45 but reportedly suffers from CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy (formerly known as pugilistic dementia, or being "punch drunk").  It's a degenerative brain condition that causes memory loss, confusion, depression and emotional outbursts. Yesterday, noted neurologist and ringside physician Dr. Margaret Goodman tweeted, "The greatest risk to fighters' brains happens in the gym. Endless sparring sets up fighters for not only acute, but chronic [brain] injury." 

To which Norris responded, "Guilty. I sparred 12 rounds a day and I'm now paying the price. I am dedicated to spreading awareness about this issue." Years ago, Goodman was criticized for stopping fights to protect boxers. She was also involved in denying Norris' request for a Nevada boxing license.  Touchingly, Norris told Goodman, "you saved my life. I was upset back then but I'm thankful now."

To which Goodman responded: "[That was] one of most difficult days of my life. Thank you. No one can teach fighters better than another fighter. You may save a life. You were a brilliant boxer, but remain a fantastic athlete. More important, you care about the sport and are now a great advocate." --Scott Shaffer
