He's not a big enough draw to get the fights he wants.

Never a big Forrest fan, but he had some major skills in there. He seems like he could have had a better career, but I guess he has been injury plagued alot.

That's no good! Vernon has not had the greatest luck in his career which is a real shame, because I too think he had some serious skills that never quite reached his potential due to injuries! I noticed alot of people have mixed feelings or no feelings towards Vernon but he has always been one of my favourites boxers to watch. A boxer/puncher who actually uses his hight/reach well, who has an underated jab and power!
Hope he can make a bit more noise at the tail end of his career...just keep him away from Williams lol!

Vernon wanted no parts of Williams. It's a shame too.

That "Other" Light Middle champ will fight Paul. Sergui will step up so I'm a fan of his already. Williams needs to stay active.

I still have not seen the fight but have heard that Forrest did not have his best night!
I've always thought Forrest edge Mayorga clearly in the rematch as I've scored the fight the exact same way single everytime!!
