In the first week of October, Hassan N’Dam won a UD over Curtis Stevens in an eliminator for the right to challenge Jermaine Taylor who defeated aging Sam Soliman to regain the IBF Middleweight title. How Taylor even earned this title shot is another story altogether, but it is all irrelevant as he is now the champion. However he will not have too much time to savor his victory as he has assault and battery charges pending against him and an upcoming court fight that may turn out to be the toughest fight of his life, just when things started to look up for him in boxing, we wish him luck. The WBA ordered negotiations to begin between “regular” heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev and “interim” champion Luis Ortiz for a fight, but there has been no word to date about when that fight will happen. The WBA in its infinite wisdom was compelled into creating this interim and regular champion situation due to the many complications in boxing, but this situation is bizarre as very few boxing fans know who these "champions" are and IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO Champ Wladimir Klitschko is still the dominant unified champion who has been actively defending his titles with a record number of defenses. everyone knows he is the champion, so who are these paper champions everyone keeps asking, only in boxing. Alex Povetkin scored a brutal 10th round stoppage over Carlos Takam to remain a destructive force at heavyweight. Too bad he came during this era, because he would still have been the regular WBA champion if he had not had to fight Wladimir Klitschko. In a mild shocker, Nicholas "Axeman"
