Ref Jack Reiss on the 12th-round resurrection of Tyson Fury against Deontay Wilder, flying diapers in Mexico, Hugh Hefner's Halloween party, fighting forest fires, and other amazing tales

By Dennis Taylor

One of boxing’s great “non-calls” in recent years was referee Jack Reiss’ decision to allow Tyson Fury to finish his fight with Deontay Wilder after suffering a brutal knockdown in Round 12 at the Staples Center.

Reiss, one of the best officials in boxing, joins us this week to describe the earthquake he felt when Fury came crashing down, what he saw in Fury’s face as the count progressed, and how the British giant suddenly snapped back to life and demonstrated enough coherence to earn the right to finish the fight.

Reiss also discusses how he prepares for a fight, how he makes decisions in the ring, what it’s like to ref in Mexico, Panama, Japan, Thailand, and Germany, and how it feels to be center stage in a jam-packed arena on worldwide TV.

And, by the way, Reiss also spent a few evenings at the Playboy Mansion, not only as a working referee, but also as a Los Angeles fire marshal, providing security for Hef’s sexy, celebrity-filled Halloween party. This is a story you definitely want to hear. Oh, he also battled forest fires.

 Expert analysts Travis Hartman and Rizwaan Zahid explore the strange mind of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, who risks losing a $3 million purse after testing positive for marijuana after his loss to Sergio Martinez. They also address Freddie Roach's ever-changing landscape now that Amir Khan has jumped ship, and Chavez also probably is moving on. And the two boxing oracles analyze Victor Ortiz's decision to hire Floyd Mayweather Sr, Ricky Hatton's probable comeback against Michael Katsidis, and Roy Jones Jr's plan to fight Kimbo Slice.

 This is the first half of our Sept. 23, 2012 show featuring an in-depth interview with unbeaten Irish prospect Jamie Kavanagh after the commercial break.

 He spent his early years in Ireland, his formative years in Spain, and, at just 19, came to the US and connected with Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym. When Jamie Kavanagh made his professional debut in the most-famous boxing arena in the world -- Madison Square Garden - he realized he'd made all the right moves.

 The unbeaten 22-year-old lightweight joined us on Sept. 23. 2012 to claim he speaks Spanish without his Irish accent, talk about his multi-national life, and weigh in on the best fighters in his weight division.

  This is a sensational conversation with a very colorful future star.
