Willis Meehan vs Attila Kalman: Undefeateds clash Aug 30
Aussie southpaw Willis Meehan (8-0, 7 KO), son of heavyweight boxer Kali Meehan and a professional rugby league footballer, faces Attila Kalman (4-0, 3 KO) at The Melbourne Pavilion in Australia.
Will Willis be better than his father?
Kali Meehan (42-6, 32 KO) was a standout fighter back in the day. He fought Lamon Brewster, Hasim Rahman, DaVarryl Williamson, Ruslan Chagaev, Travis Walker, Michael Sprott and Shane Cameron, and challenged Joseph Parker for the WBO Heavyweight Title in 2015.
Back to Willis...
Only 23, Willis Meehan turned pro way back in 2014 and won a unanimous decision. Since then, he's KO'd 7 straight opponents.
The 6'5" Meehan last fought in March, stopping Julian Esteban Ruiz (then 11-8-1) inside the distance. Meehan is ranked 228 of 1,285 active heavyweights by BoxRec and is the No. 8 heavyweight in Australia.
So, who is Attila Kalman?
We don't know much about him. He's 26, hails from Hungary and registered a TKO in his most recent bout against Laszlo L Fekete (then 4-1) in February. He's also ranked 258 of 1,285 active heavyweights by BoxRec and is No.2 in his native Hungary.
Meehan vs Kalman should answer a few questions about these young fellas.
