Pug and Copp welcome the 140-pound, 31-year-old, Jose Zepeda, who delivered a closing-time punch to Ivan Baranchyk on Saturday for, potentially, the best knockout of the year (1:00). Zepeda shares his state of mind while being knocked down before landing the decisive strike. What fight does he believe to be inspiring (5:15)? Zepeda chronicles the aftermath of the bout, including he and Baranchyk's trip to the hospital (6:30) before detailing how he nearly retired back in 2015 (8:15). The southpaw reflects on his loss to Jose Ramirez a year go (9:15), and who's next on Zepeda's radar (12:00)? After parting with last Saturday's victor, Mike and Lance discuss WBO potentially stripping Jose Ramirez of his title while Jack Catterall remains an overdue mandatory (16:15). The duo preview upcoming bouts including Gervonta Davis vs. Leo Santa Cruz, which moved from October 24 to Halloween in San Antonio and has permitted a limited amount of live spectators (25:00). Before closing today's show, Navarette v. Villa thoughts, Wilder-Fury III hold up, and Dubois-Joyce date.
