Default Joe Mesi...what should be his next step?

.....fight guys like Brian Minto...Sherman Williams..then....Chris Byrd...or..Evander Holyfield?...then wait for a title shot? Or keep taking easy matches and risk injury or an upset while waiting for a ranking?

Mesi should look for the easiest pay-day he can find then get his tail out.

His next step should be a "live" top 15 or 20 guy or he should just retire.

His boxings skills are sound and he has great power but he's damaged good & it's time to shit or get off the bowl as far as his career is concerned.

He's been at this comeback long enough to at least take on an opponent who's boxed before.

Mesi who is are top US heavy should after the Minto fight take on the man who Povetkin ducked the Terror of the Southland J.D. Chapman.Then should fight a series of fights with top guys like Donnel Holmes and Farug Saleem too set up for a fight with Wladimir Klitschko

Mesi will eventually work his way back to a somewhat big name, and will probably be taken out when he does.

But, he certianly deserves a chance to show what he can do. I'd like to see Mesi finally get a big fight, after all this hullaballoo he's been through.

I think a Jirov rematch would be good.

Waiting for a ranking?

He has been asked to stop fighting but he doesn't want to heed the advice . . . so he should step up in competition and try his luck against at least the top five . . . now!

Make or break . . . so he can decide whether to continue on or quit.

Nice one. Seriously, his next step should be commentary. I've heard him do some before, and he wasn't bad at all.

If he beats Minto, probably Rahman.

And then if he beats Rahman, a title shot.
