Meehan was slower than treacle in winter. You simply can't sit on the sidelines for 2 years then fight top notch figthers & expect to win.

Yep.

Watched the vid of the public ring session the two did, and even though Kali trainer was just walking him through some padwork, he just looked slow as can be.

What surpises me more than Meehans lack lustre performance was Chagev complete inability to assert his dominance during every round of this fight.
Chagev at almost unbackable (Meehan $5) odds should have wiped the floor with Meehan. Chagev was very unimpressive for a heavyweight champion contender. Chagev clearly won this fight but really narrowly won each round for the unanimous decision. Very few effective puches thrown and very few telling blows. Chagev will want to step it up a notch (about 5 notches) if he is to have any chance against David Haye.

Based on this performance against Meehan he wont get near David Haye.

Contrary to what somebody already said, I thought Meehan lacked any power to stop Chagaev. Everytime he threw a punch or power punch,Ruslan just easily blocked it with his glove..Meehan was really slow, once he throws the punch, Ruslan was quick to throw his money punch (straight left counter).

That would be an interesting match up Joe. I'd like to see Kali square off against Cameron as well.
