Andy Lee's WBO world middleweight title defense against Billy Joe Saunders has been postponed for a second time. The fight had already been rescheduled from September 19 in Limerick to October 10 in Manchester - but is now off again after Saunders was injured in training. Lee (34-2-1-KO24) picked up a virus last month that disrupted his preparation but this time a cut sustained in sparring by the unbeaten challenger Saunders (22-0-KO12) is the reason for the delay. Promoter Frank Warren said: "Unfortunately Billy Joe Saunders suffered a cut in training and his fight against Andy Lee will be postponed until late November and we'll be making an announcement about it later. "The show will still be going ahead and it's a great show with two world title fights and we are working on another world title fight to go on the bill." Still on the card at the Manchester Arena local boy Terry Flanagan (28-0-KO11) makes the first defence of the WBO world lightweight title against America's Diego Magdaleno (28-1-KO12) and Liam Smith (20-0-1-KO10) faces John Thompson (17-1-KO6) for the vacant WBO world light-middleweight belt.

BATTLE OF THE BADGES HEATS UP
by Michele Chong
There was plenty of fire in the ring at Saturday's 2015 Battle of the Badges (BOTB) held at Agua Caliente Casino, Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, Calif.
This charity fight night pits policemen, firemen, corrections officers, EMS, Armed Forces members and more in amateur boxing bouts benefiting the nonprofit organization. These bouts are always spirited ones (especially when braggin' rights are involved) and this BOTB clash is always one of my favorites to attend.
And the weekend event lived up to all expectations.

Leo Santa Cruz just entertained fans in what was easily, the performance of his short career against Abner Mares. Cruz (31-0-1, 17 KO's) took over the fight after the 3rd round and never looked back. Mares (29-2-1, 15 KO's) started off fast but appeared to lose steam in the middle rounds. Cruz for his part, continued to adjust and find different ways to attack Mares throughout the fight. Cruz, having a huge contingence in the crowd, fed off the chants of his name throughout the fight.

In a rematch that nobody was asking for and almost seven years after stopping Ricardo “El Matador” Mayorga with one second left in the twelfth round of their first fight, “Sugar” Shane Mosley capped an entertaining toe to toe battle by stopping Mayorga again, this time with one second left in round six with a controversial body shot that put Mayorga down for a full ten count on Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Mayorga claimed the blow was low but the referee called it fair.
