Will Mesi Come Back?
By Tom Donelson
Last year Baby Joe Mesi was an "enigma wrapped in a riddle" as his opponents consisted mostly old fighters on their last legs or the barely breathing. Now, the big question- will Mesi ever fight again?
Some questions were answered and some were left unanswered. And those unanswered may never be answered. Going into the 2004 year, Mesi had dispatched DaVarrel Williamson in one round before engaging in a close bout with Monte Barrett. Mesi proved too strong for Barrett in the first five rounds and just dominated the tentative New York City native before Barrett made a second half comeback to tighten the fight on the scorecard. Barrett boxing skills nearly undid the Buffalo native, as Mesi appeared to run out of gas.
