I know that YOU know that he and Shannon Briggs are in talks for a fight EARLY in 2013. I got a feeling that this comeback fight vs a lower 100 will be a tuneup for that fight.
It may well be Danny Williams, but I wouldnt count out Sprott, Bahtov, Ding, or even Pudar.
All would be solid fights for his return, but Williams would be a foregone conclusion. His punch resistance is all but gone, and I would like to think Sauerland would want him to at least test his rebuilt shoulder.
