I have to disagree here. I'm a big fan of Liakhovich but Solis would handle him without too much difficulty in my eyes. SL fought the fight of his life to win the belt from Brewster, and was so unlucky to get stopped in the last few seconds of the Briggs defence, but really it was a matter of time until someone beat him. Ibragimov would have done it for sure if he'd won the Briggs fight

Liakhovich will not compete with the best of the division again from my POV. Guys like the Klitschkos, Povetkin, Adamek, Haye and Solis have too much for him. His best hope would be a big win against someone like Chagaev or Chambers, but I wouldn't make him the favourite in either of those fights. At this point I'd just like to see the guy win a few more fights and make some money without ending up in the same ring as a top 5 heavyweight.

Liakhovich-Holyfield sounds pretty appealling to me, now I think of it...

Doesn't matter who Liahkovich signs with, as long as he ignores his trainer and keeps on that dirtbah manager of his Ivaylo Gotsev, he'll never be in a significant fight again.

He had his chance to redeem himself against Valuev, instead he stood still and was Valuev's heavy bag for 12 rounds.

His prime consisted of 1 single fight. Pathetic.

Solis has not proven himself as a pro period. His best fight was getting knocked out in the first round by Vitali Klitschko with a right hook to the temple. So, that makes Solis the best heavyweight living today?

It's also true that he ducked Wladimir Klitschko by saying he couldn't leave the US or he would lose his citizenship

Areola-Liakhovich anyone? That's another fight I'd love to see!

He's certainly not the best heavyweight by a long stretch, but I think I've seen enough ability in him to be ranked alongside Chagaev and Chambers just outside the top 5 (Klitschkos, Povetkin, Adamek, Haye)

Not sure who I've got after that... maybe a couple of new entries... maybe JC Gomez is back in... he did win 5 fights last year (or so I read).

He would have no change against Haye.

His defense is too open and he has slowed down notably since the Brewster fight.

I'd love to see him avenge the Briggs loss. That possibility never occured to me for some reason. He'd best stay away from Valuev though, Sergei is tailor made for him
