Today in Kazakhstan, William Joppy was knocked out in the sixth round by reigning light heavyweight champion Beibut Shumenov.
It got me thinking who are the worst title challengers of the year 2011. These are the fights that are made and surely there will be challengers who are worse, but for now this is what we have.
To clarify I am not calling the men on this list bums or fighters that have no skill. Some of these men have skills and may turn out to be fine fighters someday.
Although some of them have skills, it may just be a little to early for them to be getting a title shot or they may have taken the easy way there.
Then there are the guys on this list who have little skill and quite frankly it makes you scratch your head and ask what is going on here?
Some of these fights are the champions fault while some are the promoters' fault. At any rate, let's look at the 10 fights you shouldn't be worried about.
