    That would be a PPV doubleheader that I would not hesitate to buy.

    But, alas, the promoters are too selfish to give the fans an event that good.

    David Light defeated Lance Bryant via 1st round TKO to move to 16-0. He'll now face Mose Auamatagi on the Parker v Fa card on December 12.

    John Parker, brother of Joseph, moves to 5-0 after a 1st round TKO win over Jason Tuala on the same card.

    Never saw John Parker. Is he as good as Joseph?

    Nah, regional level at best. He falls into the category of being too small for CW and too big for LHW. He might win a few domestic/regional titles but he won't threaten at world title level sadly. David Light and David Nyika are our best prospects at Cruiser.

    Willis Meehan has a TBS scheduled February 27 in Melbourne. He's been on again, off again for six years, but is still only 25, and the fans like him because of his dad.

    I've asked about this in the past ... but would interested in a technical assessment of Meehan. Anyone have any comments?

    Meehan has fought atrocious opposition. The only fights Ive seen are vs a never-boxed-before debutant on the Jeff Horn v Randall Bailey undercard and vs a 5'10 heavyweight on the Joseph Parker v Kali Meehan undercard. Meehan is 6'5 himself. His second to last fight was vs a 43 yr old Argentinian. His last fight, his ninth fight was a UD over a 4 fight novice Hungarian. So we really have no idea at this point. He needs to step up to Australasian journeyman level next yr. Look for him to go in against the likes of Hunter Sam, Bowie Tupou next yr. Technically speaking, and I'm no expert, he seems to have a pretty good straight left with higher than average power. He comes from good stock- Kali was a mean puncher in his prime. If Parker beats Fa then I'd like to see Fa vs Willis fight in 2022.

    He should be forced to rematch Cieslak on neutral ground.

    Worn out.

    But this version of Wlodarczyk could still beat him.
