Former champion Lamon Brewster cleared by docs to fight
Former WBO heavyweight champion â€œRelentlessâ€? Lamon Brewster (33-3, 29 KOs), who won the title from Wladimir Klitschko in April 2004 and defended three times before losing his crown and suffering a detached retina in his fight against Sergei Liakhovich in April of this year, has been given the all-clear to fight and is eager to return to action at the earliest possible date.
â€œContractually I am a free-agent,â€? says Brewster, â€œand I am ready to move on and go after what the public demands, and thatâ€™s an exciting aggressive American heavyweight who will unify the belts.
â€œThe eye injury was an unfortunate injury, and it cost me the title, but I learn from every fight, and I intend to be very aggressive in all my future bouts. My strength is my power and I intend to KO all opponents from now on.â€?
Many people had pinned their hopes on Brewster as the heavyweight champion to watch, especially after his dismantling of Klitschko, and even though those hopes were dashed by White Wolf Liakhovich, Brewsterâ€™s not done with boxing, not by a longshot.
â€œIâ€™m making a vow to the American people,â€? Brewster continues. â€œI will be in the best shape of my career, even before I begin my next training camp, and Iâ€™ll be in the best possible condition for every fight. I put all my heart into every fight and Iâ€™m the only heavyweight out there providing exciting fights to the boxing public. Iâ€™m going into the ring to take out all opponents quickly. Once I get a title back, I promise to only go after the other champions and to unify all the belts.â€?
Whether or not Brewster can win a belt, let alone unify, only time will tell, but he has his eye on the prize and the four heavyweight champions still standing.
â€œI have one goal and one goal only: to unify the heavyweight division with resounding power and exciting bouts. I want to keep my promise to the people. Maskaev, Briggs, Valuev and Klitschko, if you have the heart, and youâ€™re not scared letâ€™s do it, letâ€™s give the people what they want, and letâ€™s return the heavyweight division back to the glory days with one unified champion.â€?
