Kali Meehan-Travis Walker in Play for March 7 in Tasmania

By Ruslan Chikov

Heavyweight Travis Walker (38-7-1, 30KOs) turned down the opportunity to fight unbeaten prospect Magomed Abdusalamov, but he's now being mentioned as the likely opponent for veteran Kali Meehan (38-4, 31KOs) for the IBF's Pan Pacific title on March 7th at the Derwent Entertainment Centre in Hobart, Tasmania. After a near two-year break, Meehan returned to the sport in 2010 and lost a twelve round decision to former WBA champion Ruslan Chagaev. He won his last three rounds.
