Herbie Hide's heavyweight comeback was thrown off the rails on Friday night when he was beaten by little-known Lithuanian Mendauga Kulikauskas.The 32-year-old former world champion had intended to use the bout simply as a warm-up as he once again attempts to join the sport's elite.But any hopes of another title seem a long way off after he was beaten by technical knockout in Nottingham, leaving plans for a clash with Danny Williams on April 23 up in the air.
 

Hide's latest comeback began last April and had seen him stop Joseph Chingangu, Derek McCafferty and Alex Vassilev.Those victories followed an 18-month exile following a disappointing defeat by Chingangu.The two-time WBO world champion has now lost four of his 35 professional bouts.

Kulikauskas came in as a late substitute after the British Boxing Board of Control rejected original opponent Rogerio Lobo of Brazil.But things went badly awry for Hide when a clash of heads midway through the third round left him with a nasty gash to the left eyebrow and the contest was halted following an inspection by the ringside doctor.The 32-year-old former WBO world champion saw the Williams bout as the next step towards regaining former glories.

That was a big shock i expected Hide to win,this will surely mess up his fight he had planned to fight Williams.

Well Herbie Hide has vowed to continue boxing despite his shock loss last Friday.
The former two-times WBO heavyweight champion was stopped on cuts by Lithuania's Mendauga Kulikauskas in Nottingham,but the 32-year-old believes fights against Audley Harrison and Danny Williams are still a possibility.

I wouldn't have thought they other two would want to fight Hide now that he got beat.
