Fight Notes: 

Making the first defense of the WBO Heavyweight Championship he won in an upset over Wladimir Klitschko, Lamon Brewster takes on unheralded challenger Kali Meehan and gets more of a fight than expected. Meehan breaks Brewster's jaw in the eighth round and has him nearly out on his feet against the ropes, but Brewster survives and manages to escape with his title via controversial split decision.

Looks like a good one I'll watch it on my way home from work.

This was an entertaining fight, but my goodness what a underwhelming performance by Lamon Brewster. This was a cherrypick almost gone wrong, and Brewster has no one to blame but himself. Kali Meehan was a national-level fighter, he had done absolutely nothing to earn himself a shot at the heavyweight title, on paper he was the embodiment of a safe matchup - he was Brewster's long-time sparring partner, and was ranked No.15 contender by WBO, which allowed WBO to sanction the fight. Brewster looked very unprepared, it looked as if his team had done a very poor job studying Meehan, they did not expect Meehan's outside game to be so effective - this theory supports the fact that Brewster's corner constantly described Meehan as "a basic one-two fighter" while talking to Brewster inbetween rounds. It would be unfair, however, to take away credit from Meehan and his team, they did a fantastic job breaking down Brewster's fighting style, including his footwork, head and upper-body movement, his inside game, the fact that he is usually a slow starter, etc. Meehan made Brewster struggle to close the distance, he did not allow Brewster to find his rhythm, in round 8 he was teeing off on Brewster who by this point was tired and somewhat frustrated, the referee looked ready to stop the fight at any moment, hence why I scored this round 10-8 in Meehan's favor. However, this was probably a mistake from Meehan, because Brewster withstood the onslaught, while Meehan spent a lot of energy and looked tired by the end of the fight, struggling to put enough leverage behind his shots, giving Brewster time to recuperate and find his range. Don't think the decision was a robbery, this was a close fight, and IMO the scorecard basically boils down to how you score rounds 8 and 9. Either way, Brewster shouldn't have struggled like that, he always had problems fighting guys with good outside game, and it showed again.
