...Evans 'Jungle Man' Quinn.


Meehan set for return

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing - 24th Aug 2010

Former world heavyweight challenger Kali “Checkmate” Meehan (35-4, 29 KOs) will return to the ring on September 2 at the La Montage Reception Center, Sydney, NSW, Australia when he will punch it out over twelve rounds with well credentialed American-based Evans “The Sandman” Quinn (18-4-1, 16 KOs) over twelve rounds with the IBF Pan Pacific title up for grabs.

Meehan is coming off a points loss to former world heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev in Germany in a May WBA eliminator.

Meehan, 6.5″, 240 lbs, has KO power in both hands and holds a knockout over 2007 heavyweight contender Davarryl Williamson. In 2004 Meehan was unlucky in being declared a split points loser after twelve action rounds against Lamont Brewster in WBO title bout.

Quinn was born in Nicaragua but is based in Miami, Florida and at 27 years and 6.3″ will be a solid test for Meehan having given former WBO heavyweight champion Siarhei Liakhovich the fight of his life before being stopped in nine rounds in a May contest.

On the undercard former 2004 Athen Olympian Adam Forsyth (8-0,7KOs) will be in action against American Chris Thomas (17-12-2, 14 KOs) over eight round bout. Thomas has met several world rated boxers including B.J. Flores who he dropped a twelve round decision to in a 2007 WBF super cruiserweight title bout.

lets hope meehan doesn't hold back in this fight.

he was far too tentative against chagaev. inactivity obviously affected his confidence.

at the same time it would do him good to get 8 or more rounds under his belt. would help his timing as well. it was ordinary against chagaev.

Agreed mate. Inactivity in the past few years can't have done him any good. Can probably thank Don King for that.

Wow I hope Meehan’s people know what they are doing here...this kid can fight

Don’t be deceived by his record he can move and punch and IMO is one of the faster more mobile heavy weights going round

He got ripped off fighting in Panama against a local and was schooling former world title holder “The White Wolf” before he gassed and got stopped in 9

If he’s fit and ready to fight his movement and speed is going to give Meehan hell

Like the showmanship and his Ali impersonation with the footwork. But McAlister came out chasing Quinn eratically and left himself wide open.

McAlister hasn't achieved anything, got KOed in round 2 of his very next bout, and his 4 losses have all been by early KO's.

So I'd take that Quinn win with a grain of salt Ash. He looks exciting though.

Watch first 4 rounds of Quinn v the white wolf....IMO Liakhovich was getting hit hard and often by Quinn and Liakhovich is a better fighter than Meehan.

Liakovich brings pressure and throws larger amounts of punches that Meehan.

This is going to be a big test for Meehan

Here's Quinn against Laikhovich in his last bout 3 months ago. A tighter contest and an unhapping ending, following a huge right hand:

Agree he'll bring plenty for Kali to contend with though.

Try watching the first 4 rounds mate....Quinn won every round...you could see he was not fit for the fight and gassed and lost each round from then on until the stoppage.

All Im saying is if Quinn is fit Meehan doesnt bring the same pressure as Laikhovich so Quinn will last longer and do more damage.

Agree that the fight offers plenty Ash, and already looked at those earlier rounds, as well as the progressive scores of the judges prior to the stoppage.

Although Quinn's had 20 odd fights, he hasn't been many rounds at all.

To balance that, unfortunately Kali looked uncharacteristically slow to me last up.

Probably a fair call Sally.

If Kali wins I doubt he'd be interested. But if he happened to lose he might be.

As for Quinn, who knows? From videos of previous fights he'd severely outwork Alex, and would definately require stopping.
