MUST READ INTERVIEW WITH THE BOBFATHER
By G. Leon

Pacquiao to retire? Crawford-Horn on tap for next year!

GL: Congrats on an action packed ESPN card the other night. Can you give us some thoughts on the card? It was a terrific show, the guys really fought well. It just shows that when promoters can promote the fights they believe the public wants to see and don't have to go through the filter of selling a particular fight to the network you're going to get better fights.

VAUGHN ALEXANDER PREPARING FOR NEXT STEP FORWARD

Press Release: It has been a little over a year and a half since Vaughn "The Animal" Alexander (10-0, 7 KOs) was released from prison after more than a decade behind bars. During that time, his daughter was born, he signed a promotional contract with Main Events, he hired George Jakovic, as his manager and he made his television debut on HBO Latino Boxing in April. Throughout all of these changes, Vaughn has remained focused on leaving his old life behind him and tirelessly pushing towards his goal of becoming a world champion, like his younger brother Devon Alexander (a former two-division champion).  The next hurdle in Vaughn's path is Connecticut native Elvin Ayala (29-9-1, 13 KOs). The two are slated to face each other in a ten-round middleweight battle as the main event on Thursday, October 5th at Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino.

LINARES DEFEATS CAMPBELL VIA SPLIT DECISION

Jorge Linares W12 Luke Campbell... Jorge Linares retained his WBA lightweight title by defeating Luke Campbell by split decision in Inglewood, California.  One official scorecard favored Campbell 115-113 but the other two went to Linares, 114-113 and 115-112. The Venezuelan Linares sent the Englishman to the canvas with a right hand to the cheek in the second round, which caused a cut on Campbell’s face. From the fifth round on, Campbell showed that his gold medal at the 2012 Olympics was no coincidence and began to work Linares well from a distance, winning in several of the middle rounds. However, Linares regained his dominance in the ninth round and, in the twelfth round, landed another straight that almost sent Campbell to canvas again. Linares is now 43-3, while Campbell drops to 17-2. source: wba

By Scott Shaffer

Yunier Dórticos KO2 Dmitry Kudryashov ... Yunier Dórticos of Cuba retained his WBA cruiserweight title last Saturday by knocking out Dmitry Kudryashov of Russia in San Antonio, Texas. The bout was part of the World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight elimination tournament. In round two, Dórticos turned out the lights by landing a right cross to the Russian’s face. Kudryashov collapsed and craw;ed around the canvas getting up just after the ten count. It was clear that, even had he beat the count, Kudryashov was in no shape to continue. Dorticos is now 22-0 with 21 KOs and moves onto the semifinals. Kudryashov is now 21-2 with 21 KOs. source: wba

By Scott Shaffer

Joseph Parker W12 Hughie Fury... Joseph Parker of New Zealand traveled to Macnhester, Engalnd and retained his title by defeating England's Hughie Fury. Parker won a majority decision by scores of 118-110 (twice) and an apparent hometown scorecard of 114-114.  Fury fought much of the fight with a cut over one eye that was caused by an accidental clash of heads. Parker, a young title holder at age 25, did not impress much, but he'll have at least one more title defense to enhance his bank account. His record is now 24-0. Fury drops to 20-1 with no notable wins on his record, but he's still a puppy at age 23. source: bbc

BADOU JACK DUCKS DMITRY BIVOL

The WBA announced that its light heavyweight championship is now vacant because regular titleholder Badou Jack sent a letter to the organization on Saturday, September 23rd that expressed his desire to give up the belt. Jack thanked the WBA for the opportunity to win the secondary title against England's Nathan Cleverly on August 28th. Jack defeated Cleverly by fifth-round technical knockout. The WBA then orderd Jack to face the WBA interim title holder, Dmitry Bivol of Russia. A purse bid was scheduled for Monday, and Jack obviously wants no part of Bivol, because he surrendered his title rather than go to purse bid.  Jack may have another championship opportunity lined up however, due to the retirement of Andre Ward earlier this week. Ward held the WBA super championship, as well as the WBO and IBF belts, which are now vacant. Jack previously held the IBF 168-pound title. --Scott Shaffer

ANTONIO OROZCO COMMITS PROFESSIONAL SUICIDE BY BLOWING OFF WEIGH-IN

According to ESPN.com, undefeated Antonio Orozco did not show up for a weigh-in, causing the cancellation of tonight's HBO co-feature. Orozco a 26-0 junior welterweight, was booked to fight Roberto Ortiz (35-1-2) at The Forum in Inglewood, California, on Saturday night in the HBO-televised co-feature of lightweight Jorge Linares' WBA title defense against Luke Campbell. But Orozco advised promoter Goden Boy at the last minute he was seven pounds overweight and not feeling well, so he did not appear at the weigh-in. Ortiz was willing to consider an over-the-weight fight, but Orozco was uninterested.  This was the second tie in three fights Orozco badly missed weight. --Scott Shaffer

VALDEZ TAKES DECISION OVER SERVANIA IN FEATHERWEIGHT WAR
By G. Leon

Oscar Valdez UD12 Genesis Servania: Undefeated WBO featherweight champion Oscar Valdez, 23-0 (19), won the toughest fight of his young career against a determined Genesis Servania, much to the delight of his hometown fans in Tuscon, Arizona. Valdez was in control of the first three rounds, but found himself on the deck when Servania landed a sharp right hand as Valdez was pulling out. Valdez made it to his feet, but was hurt again moments later and was likely saved by the bell. The tables were immediately turned however as Valdez dropped Servania with a left hook. Servania made it to his feet on very shaky legs but managed to get out of the round. Valdez was having a fantastic sixth round until he was badly hurt in the closing seconds. Servania, 29-1 (12), controlled the action in the seventh, but from then on it was all Valdez. He was the busier fighter and Servania seemed content to wait (and wait, and wait) for an opportunity to land another big shot. Boxingtalk scored it 116-110. Official scores were 116-110, 119-111, 117-109.

RAMIREZ OUTPOINTS HART IN ACTION FIGHT
By G. Leon

Gilberto Ramirez UD12 Jesse Hart: Undefeated WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez improved to 36-0 (24) in a scintillating scrap against previously undefeated mandatory challenge Jesse "Hard Work" Hart. The first round belonged to Hart, he outboxed and outpunched Ramirez, but things changed in round two when a left uppercut from Ramirez sent Hart to the canvas. Hart, 22-1 (18), made it to his feet on very unsteady legs, but managed not only to get out of the round, he rebounded to win round three. The fourth was another very big round for Ramirez, in fact an argument could be made that it could have been scored 10-8. Hart showed the heart of champion and the two world class boxers exchanged heavy blows as they seemingly traded rounds until the final bell. Boxingtalk scored it 114-113 for Ramirez with the knockdown being the difference in the fight. Official scores were 115-112, 114-113, 115-112.

CONLAN SCORES SECOND ROUND STOPPAGE OF GUZMAN
By G. Leon

Michael Conlan TKO2 Kenny Guzman: Mick Conlan made early work of previously undefeated Montana native Kenny Guzman, as expected. Conlan switched from orthodox to southpaw early and often and was able to land heavy shots to the body and head at will. Guzman did his best, he landed a few clean punches that a prospect like Conlan has no business getting hit with, but was clearly outclassed. Conlan floored Guzman with a right hand at the bell, Guzman beat the count but the referee rightfully waved it off. Conlan remains perfect, improving to 4-0 (4), Guzman fals to 3-1 (1)

PRE-HURRICANE INTERVIEW WITH JUAN MANUEL LOPEZ
By Ivan Montiel

Boxingtalk sends its prayers out to all Puerto Ricans

In an interview that took place shortly before Hurricane Maria devastated the island of Puerto Rico, Boxingtalk's Ivan Montiel (loacted in Canada) talked with Boricua boxing legend Juan Manuel Lopez about a fight against Jayson Velez that was planned for September 30th in Juncos, Puerto Rico. As you probably know, all power has been lost on Puerto Rico and the extent of the damage is not yet known, but the likelihood that Lopez vs. Velez takes place in less than ten days has to be very slim. Boxingtalk has decided to print the interview anyway, and we send our hopes and prayers to all of the people of Puerto Rico.

ANDRE WARD ABRUPTLY RETIRES
By G. Leon

Undefeated world light heavyweight champion Andre Ward, 32-0 (16), announced his retirement from the boxing. The announcement comes as a surprise to many in the industry as Ward's next fight was allegedly in the works for an HBO World Championship Boxing main event. Moments ago Ward told ESPN's first take, "I've been boxing for 23 years and this sport takes a toll on you, and just the accumulative effect of all the training and all of the fights it just starts to wear on you and when your body starts to wear on you it takes away your desire and when you don't have the desire and you don't have the ability to go out there and prepare the way you need to you just shouldn't be in a boxing ring. I've always wanted to retire from the sport and not let the sport retire me and I have that opportunity today. "
