By Mark Vester

It appears a rematch between "Contender" star Brian Vera and middleweight prospect Andy Lee is not going to happen, according to Vera's promoter Jeff Wald, who sees no reason for Vera to fight Lee again.

Lee, regarded as one of the best prospects in the sport, was stopped by Vera in the seventh round of their televised contest on March 21. Emanuel Steward, manager and trainer of Lee, had told various media outlets that rematch was being worked on for a July date. Wald told boxing scribe Dan Rafael that a rematch had no chance of taking place.

"Not a chance on God's earth," Wald said. "No reason to. Lee doesn't mean anything. There is no upside to a rematch. There are better fights out there for Brian. There are more meaningful opponents. I'm very proud of what Brian did because nobody gave him a chance. Why should we do a rematch? What for? There's better money elsewhere."

Haha well I can see this from a few points of view. Vera doesn’t want to fight the guy again cause if he loses then the first match didn’t mean ****. I know how bad Lee wants this fight to happen because he knows (and I know) he was the better fighter and was just unlucky. From my own point of view I think Vera knows he would get beat and he should probably retire right know seeing as this is the only big win he will ever get in his career.

Well I was being sarcastic but I dont see him getting a big pay day. Everyone who watched that fight knows it was a fluke and no one is gonna pay him big money to fight. At least I hope not.

It wasn't a fluke. A guy beat an overhyped guy who makes 5 mistakes per second. I see no need for a rematch personally. Handle you business the first time.

Oh thats right we are still calling Lee overhyped in here. Guess I'll check back in a year.
Almost forgot that you were sensitive when it comes to Lee.

The kid had a setback.

I could name a lot of fighters it happened to. Marvin Hagler and Bernard Hopkins to name two.

I know your just using an example. But never, ever use Lee name in association with Hagler and Hopkins again

It wasn't that important anyways. Who cares if they rematch or not? LOL Seriously...
I wouldn't mind seing it again on FNF. not because I think either is especially great but I found the fight really intertaining. and for Lee's sake he has to avenge his loss becuase it really sets him back. I don't blam Vera for not wanting the rematch though, Lee is only known because of Manny's high praise. I wouldn't be interested in fighting him again either.
