One such tragic case is that of former WBO title holer Siarhei Liakhovich (26-6, 16) who looked only a shadow of his former self as he over-came the very poor Chad Davis (5-12, 1). Liakhovich, who had lost his last 3 by stoppage, was widely booed despite the victory and it seems that win, or lose, the "White Wolf" is no longer wanted in the boxing community.
Whilst Liakhovich was once a champion the same cannot be said for Damon Reed (47-17-0-5, 32) who did once challenge for the WBO world title then held by Herbie Hide. Unfortunate for Reed he suffered his 11th stoppage loss on Saturday night as promising youngster Jordan Shimmell (13-0, 11) stopped him in the third round.
Shimmell is just a Cruiserweight at the moment though appears likely to fill into a Heavyweight in the future so we'd advise keeping an eye on him even if it may be a while before he starts making in roads in the blue ribbon division.
