That's what'll happen to ya when you have a glass jaw as bad as Rahman.

Speaking of china chins, I guess the verdict's in on Williamson, huh??

It would of been nice to see these fights. TOS vs Meehan, Golota vs Mcbride. Wtf else does Showtime have to show that is so great? They show the same movie 45 times a month , they could take some out of that , and show the undercard for christ sake.

He didn't do anything to hurt his cause in the title picture by winning tonight. Maybe Chagaev can fight him as a voluntary. They were considering Michael Moorer so it's not like it would be out of the question to see Meehan wind up getting a title shot.

Was there ever a question about it? I remember an amateurfight 1998 or 99 when he tried to slug it out with Felix Savon in the first round, got caught with a perfect counter right within the first minute of the fight and was "put to sleep".

This nicely sums up how shit the division is. A guy who dropped Wlad and had him in trouble gets done by ****ing Meehan.
Likewise Meehan did well against Brewster who himself beat Wlad but Meehan has been starched by Danny "Mr Kipling Cakes" Williams, and battered by several other fighters.

Oh and then we have Sam Peter who dropped Wlad three times and he has just been put all over the shop by McCline another run of the mill fighter who Wlad battered.

The division is truly the worst it has been since Jack Johnson won the world title, only Wlad is worth a damn thing and he would have been ****ed up in any of the other eras due to freezing the second he gets hit.

YES. He is also the same guy who was TKO's by Danny Williams in one round.

Its a good win for Meehan, but he was clearly losing the fight and was in danger of going out himself, Williamson had Meehan in trouble in the 3rd, 5th & 6th, cut him under the left eye and had the eye closing.

What happened was at the bell to end round 6, both fighters threw overhand rights, Meehan's got there first and hit TOS on the top of the head, dropping him. TOS beat the count an made it back to this corner where the referee was allowing him to continue.

About 30 seconds into the rest period between the 6-7 rounds, the doctor ordered the fight stopped because he was concerned about where Meehan's punch landed. Meehan TKO6 win...

You are an idiot.

I guess a fighter has to always perform well enough to always beat everyone he's supposed to beat, and alwasy perform well enough to beat everyone who was beaten by others he has beaten.

This is boxing and things change, and fighter's performances VARY from year to year as is expected......They also improve and regress as time goes by...........as is expected.

By your reasoning, the division sucked when Ali was beaten three times, and it also suddenly sucked when Tyson was beaten........I guess Tyson was a bum for getting beaten by someone he was expected to beat?

Again, you are an idiot. A BIG idiot.

Well, I didn't have any question, but didn't think Meehan had the pop to take advantage of those fragile whiskers.

It's now pretty clear that just about ANYBODY can starch Williamson if they catch him right.

well to be honest he is a perfect pick for prospects who are looking for an opponant they can knock out and has former credentials...but what moorer did to cousier was quite remarkable...cliff is a durable enuogh heavy with decnt power and chin just doesnt have the hieght or talent...but that double right hook .

he's good enough to knock guys out has great defencive skills and hanspeed for his wieght and age...phh why not man talented southpaws are rare at heavy.

BORKED heres the danny williams - kali meehan fight.


i dont think kali was weak chinned if you look he was caught so early on and got up groggy with danny ready to bomb not just that...once he was knocked down you can see he was birght and ready but just embaressed.

great win for williams
