I've always thought Meehan had a glass chin. I think I still believe that. He made Brewster look terrible the same way The White Wolf made him look terrible, and neither Meehan nor The White Wolf is very good.

Of course, Brewster gets a boost because of the WK KO, after getting the **** kicked out of him for several rounds but showing heart to take out an exhausted Klit.

That fight caused a big ****ing headache in the HW division. It took several years to see what Brewster was about, and Meehan, Rahman, SL and eventually Briggs were able prop themselves up really based on one unfortunate turn of events.

I'm ready for new blood blood to emerge.

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.
No you are the ****ing idiot. The division is ****. The only variation here is which one of the **** fighters outside of Wlad is going to put in a **** peformance next.

All the guys hyped as being a good heavy like Peters stink in comparison to the fighters of the past. They are one dimensional and that dimension is not even a good one.
It is nothing to do with losing, if they had any ability and were beating each other or going back and forth competeng like an Ali, Foreman, Frazier mix then fine. But these are (excluding Wlad) a bunch of also rans. Guys who have been around for years doing nothing much and then a few guys who have come from nowhere with padded records...

So we have about 6 Eastern European fighters hyped and then they all show their true worth in god awful world title fights and then we have the also rans like Briggs winning a world title as an old man, and guys like ****ing Meehan and not so long ago Larry Donald....

If you want to discuss the merits of this heavyweight divison, please do, you will be horribly owned.

Anyway, Williams got STARCHED with a capital "S." He went back and then he flopped forward - this should be in the running for KO of the year, imo.

The shooter obviously was up high. Camera probably wouldn't have offered much from the ring itself. A pretty good way to do it, IMO. You can see the folding chair action very clearly!

At the end, they turn the focus on the ring, though - and it seems to offer a pretty clear view. That's why I was questioning it.

But, either way, you sure can see Williamson fold like like an accordian!!

Ranks right up there with that KO Ding-a-Ling scored not long ago.

Oof, that was vicious. I had picked Meehan to win in 3 because Williamson is pretty shopworn at this point, and has been prone to getting hurt.

That was vicious.

Oh, and Showtime didn't deem it important enough to show on their main broadcast in the U.S.

Maybe they should have.

Looks like Williamson's over the hill at this point.

When was he on top of the hill?
He was a prospect back 4 or 5 years ago until Mesi starched him in the first.

Also, remember this is a guy that dropped Wlad and was arugably winning the fight when it was stopped on the cut.

That'd be KO of the Year if not for it NOT being a KO.

Should of been a TKO right then, Williamson was done.. can't believe he got up.

What a huge overhand haymaker.

All-in-all, a pretty solid body of work. He was a top 15 guy for 3-4 years. Compared with this, that's "on top of the hill" for sure.
