Default When is Brewster coming back?

I know he has two losses but he's an entertaining fighter.
brewster vs liakhovich was one of the best HW fight in years...
his latest one , against wlad was embarrassing but there's nothing to be ashamed of...it's not like he got owned vs a #100 ranked fighter..
I'd love to see him vs Rahman , Chagaev , Peter or even Tua.

No, but it is like he didn't even try. I don't think we need to see him compromise his health anymore.

Brewster shouldn't have even allowed to be in the ring with Wlad at this point in his boxing career. IMO

If he decides to step back into the ring, I like to see him fight a few patsies, to get his timing back and his confidence as well. Then step up to a B level fighter ( with low to mid level power). I think he can still beat a lot of guys in the division, but at what cost? His health is more important than a few more wins on his ledger.

Bad idea. Liakhovich is coming off a loss wherein his performance seemed to indicate he hadn't trained very well. Brewster is coming off a loss wherein his performance seemed to indicate that he is done.

I agree. It looked like Brewster only showed up for the paycheck. I hope that he has enough money and options to stay out of the ring.

Lamon Brewster has one of the biggest hearts in the heavyweight division, if not the biggest. He's won a title, defended it, and beat fighters like Wladimir Klitschko, Andrew Golota, Luan Krasniqi, and Kali Meehan. He should either get a few more fights to secure some money for his future, or call it a career while he still has his health.

Brewster has plenty in the tank. The last fight went exactly like the first, but Wlad did not collapse.

Brewster should still fight. He would beat quite a few of the top Heavies.

Beating Wlad at the moment is like winning the presidency by running as an independent. Possible, but not in a very near future. So Brewster got nothing to be embarrased about. i would like to see him fight Virchis, Dimitrenko, Rahman, or the loser of the Maskaev v. Peter.

If he fights a "B" level fighter, it better not be one that can actually box. Because he will lose. LB has always had trouble with pure boxers, that why Shufford beat him so easily. That is also why why he did not have a tune up prior to the WK rematch, because he would have had a good chance of losing. I think we can stick a fork in Brewster, he is done.

Lamon is my favorite active boxer, his heart speaks for itself. Brewster is throwback fighter of yester year, that guy that can take a beating and still keep fighting. If Lamon comes out like he did against Wlad in july he will lose to anyone in the top 10 and maybe top 20, he didnt even look like himself in that fight. I wish the best for Lamon but if he thinks he could win fights without getting hit hard, hes kidding himself.
