Default Larry Donald v Jason Gavern - Feb 9

First Maskaev, Golota and Tua and now this. Donald will be 46 when this fight happens and hasn't fought in 5 1/2 years. Plus it's a 12 rounder. Why?

He's looking to make some dough.

Most "once elite" type fighters still have enough to handle journeymen into their mid 40s.
Not saying Donald was elite, but he was right on the cusp, and he never had troubles with C level opposition.

Nothing wrong with it. He's healthy, had plenty of time to recoup, is in decent enough shape for a 45 y/o HW. He'll make 5-10K, then have a decent turnaround in May or June and make another little payday.

Maybe he's angling for another fight with Holyfield.

Maybe Sulieman will create a WBC geriatric HW title.
