As silly as 2015 has been for boxing and as frustrating it's been for many fans, there is still hope. The final four months or so of the year look more promising, starting with this weekend's match up between Abner Mares vs Leo Santa Cruz on ESPN, by Premier Boxing Champions. Not to be outdone, at least in the drama department, Shane Mosley is schedule to return after a more than 18-month layoff to face old foe Ricardo Mayorga on a Pay-Per-View show - if it doesn't get shut down by Don King first.
Since Top Men took a week off, there's also a matter of Krzysztof Glowacki's highly entertaining upset win over reigning cruiserweight belt-holder Marco Huck to discuss. There is serious talk of it being the "Fight of the Year" thus far, and it's tough to argue at this point.
Don't forget more random news, like updates on the Miguel Cotto vs Saul "Canelo" Alvarez ticket situation, and the same for Floyd Mayweather vs Andre Berto. There's an update for the Mayweather-Berto undercard, testing policy for Lucas Matthysse vs Viktor Postol, a new foe for Terence Crawford and more.
Through it all, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Fight CIty's Patrick Connor will try to keep you laughing. Or at least feeling awkward. Thanks for tuning in!
