Say it's so for Joe

Mesi Hearing Tentatively Set for April 18

Mesi (29-0) was the WBC's top-ranked contender before falling out of the ranking entirely in October. The suburban Buffalo native has been suspended indefinitely, pending a review of his medical records, since winning a unanimous decision over Vassiliy Jirov in Las Vegas in March 2004.

I've said it before: Joe Mesi is one of the few interesting fighters currently in the heavyweight division. Hopefully he is healthy enough to return to his career without danger.
