I agree with Erik and pollux. But there shouldn't even be 6 or 7 belts there should be 1. Now its not saying much to be the heavyweight champion because there are 5 or 6 others. When somebody unifys all the belts I'll start paying more attention.

I know it will be a while before somebody unifys all of the titles but I can wait. But I know its for the money but when they get to greedy people will stop watching fights on PPV and stop going to the fights they will just find the results in the newspaper or on ESPNNEWS.

(November 6, 1999) Atlantic City, NJ. (Atlantic City Convention Center) --

Taken from boxing times. Oleg Maskaev is victorious.

Quote:
Just when you think that they are ready to count out boxing the sport finds new life and thrills. Coming on the heels of a federal 32-count indictment of IBF president Bob Lee and three of his compatriots for bribery and racketeering charges, the sport looked dead again. However, what makes boxing so compelling is what takes place inside the ropes. That was the case last night when four big heavyweights went to war and two guys exited on their shields.

The Russian version of the old Canadian heavyweight George Chuvalo, Mr. Oleg Maskaev drilled the number sixth-ranked contender Hasim Rahman with a wicked right hand to score a brutal 8th round knockout.

The shot drove Rahman through the ropes, out past the ring apron, and on to the venerable hardwood floor flat on his back. Rahman was unable to climb back into the ring after a count of twenty and Maskaev was awarded a stunning KO victory at the 40-second mark.

Within seconds of Rahman hitting the deck, unruly fans began firing folding chairs and alternate ref Steve Smoger was nailed by flying metal. A wild melee ensued and it took several minutes before order was finally restored. Security cops and New Jersey's finest battled with disenfranchised Rahman fans, or people who were unhappy with the shocking conclusion to the lively affair.

"I was a little slow but I believed in myself," Maskaev said after the victory. "I said I'm not going to give up. I believed in my power."

about 3 weeks late but--how was it that HRahman fell into the same pattern against O as he did in their initial fight? wwht? Rock is a better boxer and was able to defeat O if he kept the distance and didn't go toe-to-toe. He should have won against the 37 year old but tried too many times to go for the stoppage. Not that Rock isn't a good/great fighter but he let this slip away just as MichaelMoorer did against Big George and just as he did 7 odd years ago. For a split second, I thought Rock was gonna go through the ropes again. He shouldn't have wasted his opportunity as the titleholder against a boxer (with power) that didn't deserve a shot at the title.

BTW, Rock never represented AMERICA's LAST LINE OF DEFENSE--Oleg did, as a 2 year naturalized citizen Oleg rescued us from the clutches of another pullooka.

There are no great heavyweights now-a-days. The heavyweight division sucks and thats that.

There are only good ones now. (sp)Lahovitch, Klitschko, Sultan Ibragimov and Samuel Peter are the ones I look to see improve. Samuel Peter would have been touted as the next Mike Tyson had he been able to close the deal on Wladdy and unfortunately, he needs to destroy JToney within 5 to gain anything from this fight.
Lahovich will have a rematch (against ?MonteBarret?) and has an opportunity to capture some fans. Sultan didn't live up to his hype in his last outing (can't remember the name) but should have won the draw decision. He didn't show that 20 pro fights is enough to warrant a title shot against Wladdy.

And then there is one-Wladdy-the dude should try to blast the next opponent out. No more decisions, no more holding (see Samuel Peter) but go for the knockout-quickest way to get on the great list.

I dont think Liakhovich ever fought Barrett. I hear Liakhovich is gonna defend against Shannon Briggs. And Klitschko may be fighting Brock.

I like the heavyweight division cause you never know who is gonna win. Just wish they would fight a bit more often some are not active enough.

Klitchko is the best one out there, but even Jerry Querry or Jimmy Ellis would make him look like a fool, nobody out there would be contender in the 70's Toney might have been.

My mistake it was Lamon Brewster. Needless to say Lakhovich showed skill and the ability to take a punch. He has a good shot at defeated the majority of heavies out there.
