TOS is #4 on the WBA.
Meehan is #15 on the WBA.

If TOS wins this one he may move ahead of #3 Ruiz and #2 Liakhovich, and then get in line for a title fight in 2008.

Meehan just totally dropped off the radar for me after getting pummelled by Rahman. What's he been up to?

Semi-retirement. He occasionally fights some journeyman, but in general is a part time boxer.

Hmm, tall hard hitter versus a hard hitting semi-retired boxer from the southern hemisphere? We know what happened last time we saw that.

Can't say that Williamson would deserve the shot vs. Chagaev, but if he does beat Meehan, he should move ahead of the inactive Ruiz & Liakhovich, especially since both guys have turned down title-elimination bouts vs. Williamson.

More likely is that Williamson would move to #2, and then have to fight Valuev for the mandatory.

It would be interesting to see Valuev in with a mobile, big-punching heavyweight....

I agree that TOS would beat & KO Meehan but Valuev would beat the shit outta TOS, look what Mesi did to him. Valuev would win by KO in 5 or so.

Kali is gutsy. But at his peak he could only ever be considered a journeyman.

Since Kali took this on fairly short notice, i doubt he wins.
Tho Kali does have some heart so u never know.
Williamson on points IMO.

All u gotta do is stick and move against Valuev. He's very slow and pondersome. You do what Chagaev did. When u see the openings you let your combinations go and then get the hell out. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Williamson could do this. I'm not sure how long he can sustain it but he can execute this strategy. Plus, his punches will sting Valuev when they land cuz he can crack. It would be a cat and mouse game for a while but I think the cat will eventually corner the mouse and end it.

Both of these fighters were never top-level fighters even at their best. At their best: B-level fighters. Right now: C-level journeymen. It really doesn't matter who wins, but it should be entertaining. Williamson by mid-rounds stoppage.

Davarryll will stop Kali.. I remember Meehan having a great run of victories a few years ago but then ruins it with some horrid outings..Too inconsistant..

Davarryll will take 4 rounds to look closely at him then just pile on the pressure and rat a tat tat a stoppage over him with accurate solid punches..

Sounds about right. Meehan just has this unsteady look about him in the ring. It's really no surprise that he seemingly gets wobbled everytime he takes a power punch. Brewster and Rahman had him all over the place on numerous occasions and Williams had him out with 1 punch. This is Williamson's fight to lose. Happy to see Meehan get a little payday here though. He's a good guy.
