PROGRAIS: FLANAGAN WON'T GO THE DISTANCE
By G. Leon

"My fights in New Orleans are more than boxing matches, they're events!"

How is everything going in preparation for October 27th? What can we expect to see from you on fight night? You're going to see fireworks like you always see from me. My main thing is to bring those fireworks that you're going to see, preparation is always hard. Training camp is always hard, I'm starting to bring it down now, but everything was real intense. I started two weeks earlier in LA again and now we're just two weeks away and I can't wait to head back to New Orleans next week and start doing everything to get ready for the fight.

TRAINER JOHN SCULLY TALKS ABOUT ARTUR BETERBIEV; WILFRED BENITEZ
By Ivan Montiel

Let’s talk about IBF light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev (pictured) and his most recent win, a technical knockout of Callum Johnson.  Congratulations-- I know you help train him-- what are your thoughts on Beterbiev’s performance? "It sure was a good fight!  Johnson sure came to fight! A lot of guys who fight Beterbiev, once they feel the power they ease off.  Johnson went down early yet this guy got back up and continued fighting.  As you saw, Johnson actually came back and dropped Beterbiev even though it looked like Artur was off balance.  At the end, though, Johnson didn’t complain about the knockdown and stoppage. He was definitely hurt against the ropes."

RESULTS FROM MEXICO CITY

Eduardo Hernandez TKO2 Luis Díaz... In Mexico City, super featherweight Eduardo "Rocky" Hernandez (26-0) blasted out Colombia's Luis "Machete" Díaz (23-4-1) in two rounds at a packed Sala de Armas. In the first round, Hernandez landed thudding hooks and uppercuts with both hands, leaving Diaz badly hurt at the end of the round. In round two, Diaz was stung by a well-placed counter left hook before a left hook dropped him face forward. He beat the count but a hard right hook dropped him yet again, leading to a referee's stoppage. Hernandez is now seeking a fight with Francisco "Bandido" Vargas, likely a WBC eliminator.

Lourdes Juárez W8 Gabriela Sánchez ...In an entertaining female light flyweight contest, Lourdes Juárez (25-2) defeated Gabriela Sánchez (3-2) via unanimous decision. The younger sister of WBC champion Mariana Juarez dominated from start to finish with an accurate left jab and combinations. source for both results: wbc

CRAWFORD GETS TESTED, STOPS BENAVIDEZ JR. IN LAST ROUND
By G. Leon

Twelfth-round uppercut could be punch of the year

Terence Crawford TKO12 Jose Benavidez Jr: Undefeated WBO welterweight champion and pound for pound elite Terence Crawford, 34-0 (25KO), passed the toughest test of his career with flying colors. In his second fight as a welterweight Crawford overcame a bigger, taller, longer, determined--  not to mention previously undefeated-- fighter. Despite being stopped, Jose Benavidez Jr. elevated himself in defeat by going toe to toe with one of the world's best for nearly twelve rounds in a highly competitive fight. Benavidez, 27-1 (18KO), got off a good start easily winning the first round behind his jab. Rounds two through 5 were nip and tuck, but Boxingtalk had Benavidez Jr up 3-2 after five. Crawford was in full control of the sixth round, and most of the action moving forward, but a case can be made that the fight was on the table going into the championship rounds. In the last round Benavidez came out looking for the knockout he likely needed, and was caught with a vicious right uppercut in the midst of a heated exchange. Benavidez beat the count on shaky legs and was stopped moments later with only eighteen seconds left in the bout. Source: ESPN

STEVENSON MAKES STATEMENT, STOPS SIMION IN OPENING ROUND
By G. Leon

Shakur Stevenson TKO1 Viorel Simion: Undefeated featherweight Shakur Stevenson made one helluva statement tonight by stopping Viorel Simion, 21-3 (9KO), by far his most accomplished opponent to date, in the opening round. The knockdowns began with a crushing left hand that had Simion on very shaky legs when action resumed. Stevenson, 9-0 (5KO), continued to press and scored a ho hum second knockdown when Simion's legs gave out after his gloves touched the canvas, but he closed the show in style when he landed a vicious right hook that crumpled Simion. He made it to his feet, but the referee stopped the fight as the bell rung. Stevenson got Simion in one, and former champion Scott Quigg and then-champion Lee Selby defeated Simion, but could not stop him over twelve rounds. Official time of stoppage was 3:00.

TABITI DECISIONS FAYFER

Andrew Tabiti W12 Ruslan Fayfer ... In the World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight tournament, also in Ekateriberg, Russia, Andrew Tabiti of the United States defeated Ruslan Fayfer (23-1, 16 KOs) of Russia.  The scores were 116-111, 115-112 and 114-113. After a cautious opening, Tabiti (17-0) was considerably better in middle rounds, and also in the last two rounds. Fayfer (23-1) did well in rounds eight to ten, when he bulldozed his way inside, but in the end, he did not have enough in the tank to switch the fight to his side. “The guy was really awkward, he wanted to make it dirty,” said Tabiti. “My game plan was to be relaxed at the beginning and then getting off towards the end of the fight.” Tabiti, who also holds a win over former champion Steve Cunningham, will face the winner of next Saturday’s quarter-final in Orlando between Poland’s Mateusz Masternak and Cuba’s Yunier Dorticos.  “I think Dorticos will win next week,” concluded Tabiti. source: wbss

LOOK OUT WORLD, HERE COME JOSHUA BUATSI

Joshua Buatsi KO1 Tony Averlant... In Newcastle, England, 2016 Olympic bronze medalist Joshua Buatsi (8-0) took out normally tough Frenchman Tony Averlant (26-11-2) in a single round. A light heavyweight, Buatsi focused his attack almost solely on Averlant's body and returned a quick result. Averlant went down twice from body blows and was in too much pain to continue after the second trip down. By comparison, it took Buatsi's chief domestic rival Anthony Yarde seven rounds to stop Averlant earlier this year. Yarde vs. Buatsi would be a British fight fan's delight if the fight could ever get made.  source: dazn

REPORT: MANNY PACQUIAO WILL WORK WITH AL HAYMON

Fights vs. Broner, Mayweather being discussed

According to the Manila Bulletin, Philippine legend Manny Pacquiao has agreed to a deal with manager/ advisor  Al Haymon, the founder of Premier Boxing Champions.  The report says Pacquiao and Haymon have hatched a two-fight plan for Pacquiao: first, a fight against former multi-division champion Adrien Broner in early 2019, and if Pacquiao wins, a lucrative rematch against Floyd Mayweather, who defeated Pacquiao in 2015 in the highest grossing pay-per-view fight of all time. Mayweather and Pacquiao recently met each other in Tokyo with both expressing interest in a rematch. A Pacquiao-Haymon deal makes sense for both sides. The 39 year-old  Pacquiao's reputation as a world-class operator rebounded when he knocked out Lucas Matthysse in Malaysia in July to claim the WBA regular welterweight title.  The deal would facilitate Pacquiao's access to fight most of the top welterweights in the world, who happen to be under contract with Haymon, including WBA super champion Keith Thurman, IBF champion Errol Spence, WBC champion Shawn Porter as well as former champions Danny Garcia, Broner and Mayweather. As long as Pacquiao performs well, there will be many big fights out there for him if he is with Haymon. Haymon's PBC can also offer opportunities to some of the Philippine boxers that Pacquiao promotes through his company MP Promotions. --Scott Shaffer

Press Release: WBO president Francisco Valcárcel commented today on Billy Joe Saunders' inability to defend his WBO middleweight title, as per contractually agreed, against Demetrius Andrade on October 20th.

MEXICO'S IRAIS HERNANDEZ GETS RETURN GO VS. EMMA KOZIN

Press Release: Tijuana, Mexico's Irais Hernandez will get an unusually quick rematch against Slovenia's Ema Kozin, a super middleweight.  The rematch comes just five weeks after they fought to a draw on September 8th in Croatia. On Sunday October 14th at the Technikum in Munich, Germany they will try to settle the score. Despite a meager record of 2-1-2, Hernandez must be considered an international level women's boxer, as she has a draw vs. Kozin (14-0-1) and another draw vs. WBC heavyweight champion Alejandra Jimenez (10-0-1). Hernandez gave the southpaw Kozin more problems than anyone else she has faced in her pro career, so it is very much to Kozin's credit that she agreed to face Hernandez again. Kozin is still only 19 years of age.
