Visual Description:  HBO’s Boxing After Dark?

ZENLOZ  =  NOZZLE,  OXSEPE  =  EXPOSE,  NESCOH  =  CHOSEN,  TUAPED  =  UPDATE,  FUWORR  =  FURROW,  TRETOX  =  EXTORT   —   Giving us:  NOEOCHNUDFOWTRT

Clue/Question:  He was this when he lost the boxing match to Dracula.

Answer:  DOWN FOR THE COUNT

(Great classic horror movie characters!  We’ve got Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula, Igor, The Mummy and some bats, all in the moon-shadow of a dark and mysterious castle!  All that’s missing is the Wolfman, the Bride of Frankenstein, and maybe the Creature from the Black Lagoon!  Good stuff!

All the clue words were jumbled well, today.  “Furrow”  was somewhat difficult, because it was kinda hiding in plain sight!  You really don’t hear the word all that much, anyway.  There are two new clue words for the ralis95 database, in “update” and “extort”.  “Update” gave me the most trouble.  Probably because it both starts with a vowel, and is a compound word.  I had to back into it!  Luckily, I’m a big boxing fan, so the answer/phrase came to me, with the available letters.  Knowing I needed the U and D made getting “update” much easier.  The answer letter layout was masterful!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Whenever you find a “u” and a “p” in the word, see if “up” could be part of the word. Works for me!

    Present and accounted for! I loved this puzzle. Have been away and caught up with a weeks worth of puzzles yesterday. I had the best time and got into some kind of a rhythm. I didn’t zip through them, but it didn’t take days either!
