Meehan Robbed, Spinks Wins, Mayorga At Ringside

By Rick Reeno

The good news is that Ricardo Mayorga was at ringside tonight, sitting next to Don King and watching the event. It appears that the Trinidad-Mayorga fight will go forward as planned. Don King stated that Mayorga will still be the opponent for Trinidad.

Kali Meehan, a 10-1 underdog, the first Australian fighter to challenge for the heavyweight title in over 100 years, lost to Danny Williams by KO in 32 seconds of round one, fought the fight of his life and got ROBBED of a victory by way of a split decision. The scores were 114-113 for Meehan, 114-113 for Brewster and 115-113 for Brewster. The crowd booed the decision loud.

The Lamon Brewster-Kali Meehan fight started at a very ugly pace but ended like a fight of the year contender. Both men barely threw any punches in the first two rounds and it appeared that the fight would go the route of the very boring John Ruiz-Fres Oquendo bout which took place in April of this year but the fight turned into a very hot dogfight! The two men began to open up with power punches in the third round and made the crowd wake up. Brewster fought the fight at a very slow pace, taking his time which let Meehan outwork him and land plenty of punches to the head and body. Brewster was bleeding heavy from the nose in the second round.

Meehan hurt Brewster in the 6th round against the ropes and beat on Brewster for almost two minutes, towards the end of the round Brewster came back to stun Meehan and began to land some hard shots of his own. In a round of the year candidate, Meehan hurt Brewster in the eight round and began blasting Brewster with so many hard punches for so long that I have no idea how Jay Nady did not stop the fight. Brewster leaned against the ropes to keep himself up and just took bomb after bomb for over half a round, the fact that Brewster kept swinging back is the only reason the fight was not stopped, the side of Brewster's face was swollen bad as a result.

Brewster came back to stun Meehan in the ninth round but Meehan was able to shake it off. Brewster stunned Meehan again in the tenth and landed some good hard shots at the end. Both men were out of gas in the 11th and it was pretty even by both men. Brewster was stunned again in the final round but Meehan was too tired to do anything about it, the last ended with both men swinging bombs.

Unified welterweight champion Cory Spinks defeated Miguel Angel Gonzalez by way of a 12 round decision with all three judges scoring the fight 118-109. It was surprisingly a very entertaining fight.

Miguel Angel Gonzalez came out better then anyone expected in this fight. He came out very strong in the first round and even won the round. Gonzalez had a very good gameplan of sticking to bodyshots and putting on plenty of pressure. The problem for Gonzalez which became very apparent in the rest of the fight was his lack of speed.

Spinks was lightning quick in this fight and as the fight went on, he really battered Gonzalez. Spinks landed shots at will in the final few rounds as Gonzalez was tired and was unable to hurt Spinks at all. There were no knockdowns but the case could of been made for the corner of Gonzalez to stop the fight as he was really taking a beating in the 10th and 11th rounds. As slow as Gonzalez was, he was still able to land right hands at various points of the fight. Spinks said that he wants Tszyu or Zab Judah next.
