SecondsOut Radio: John Duddy, Yory Boy Campas, Richard Pound 

On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman previews a fight which promises to be the toughest test yet for a rising and undefeated fighter who is emerging as one of the most popular in his adopted home of New York. Also discussed are the excellent fights on this past Saturday night's pay-per-view, and the busy week ahead in New York boxing, including the Broadway Boxing card on Wed., Sept. 20, at the Manhattan Center, featuring in separate bouts junior welterweight prospects Edgar Santana (18-2, 12 KOs) and Dmitriy Salita (25-0-1, 15 KOs), who were guests on this show in recent weeks.

On Friday night, September 29, middleweight John Duddy (17-0, 15 KOs), originally from Derry, Ireland, will take another step up the ladder when he fights the veteran former world champion, Luis "Yory Boy" Campas (88-8, 72 KOs), from Navajoa, Mexico. This will be the main event on a card to be held at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York. Duddy's previous appearance at the Theater, on March 16 of this year, the night before St. Patrick's Day, was before an adoring, packed house.

We spoke with both John Duddy and Yory Boy Campas at a recent prefight news conference at Jack Demsey's restaurant and bar in New York.

On a more somber note, the use of steroids and other banned "performance-enhancing" substances has grown to near-epidemic proportions in the world of sports. Among those leading the fight against such dope-cheating is Richard Pound, President of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Yet in boxing and other professional combat sports, there still is no uniform policy for testing for doping, and no compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code.

On an international media teleconference call last week, we spoke with Richard Pound about these issues.
