a realist would see CW has no business dragging that marshmellow body into a boxing ring to fight top ranked boxers. being a heavy bag ( literally) for 10 rounds is not good for CW’s future. he might be upright but each punch he eats shortens the lifespan of his cognitive abilities. and he eats a LOT of punches.
2 cent, you need to look up the word realist. then look up delusional.Posted August 23, 2012 12:08 pm
Derek- but I bet it had absolutely no power and no effect on Sherman Williams. He also complained and got timeouts when he got hurt. What a fat joke he is.Posted August 22, 2012 4:36 pm
Right at the end of round 7Posted August 22, 2012 11:45 am
wow watch the fight at 27:30. Chauncey gets hit in the face so he ties up and puts Williams in a headlock, then reaches behind his own back to hit Williams in the face. Never quite seen that technique before.Posted August 22, 2012 11:44 am
Welliver Whips Tyson
Welliver is Mr. Tokyo. He owns the Tokyo Dome and he would do much better than Buster Douglas did. Tyson would never be able to knock the Hillyard Hammer down. The dude has like 800 rounds in at heavyweight and nobody has ever phased him. Tyson is too small, too small minded, and too beneath Welliver in terms of cardio and class. Prime Welliver > Prime Tyson. Tokyo! Fujimoto is 2nd fiddle.Posted August 21, 2012 9:59 pm
LoL, you’re right. Can you imagine a young Tyson ripping Welliver with hooks to the body? His body would probably explode into a grusome mess all over the crowd. :shock:Posted August 21, 2012 8:03 pm
Reality Cop, I am not in the least objecting to coverage of gatekeepers, fringe contenders, journeymen, non-big name fighters, etc. I welcome such comprehensive coverage of the game. What I am complaining about is the lack (sometimes, not always) of critical, independent, objective journalism — exemplified by the excessive publicity afforded a near-fraud like CW, whose main claim to fame (besides padding his record) is a demonstrable talent for goofy self-promotion. Virtually everyone here who had heard of Chauncey because of ESB giving him massive exposure, but who hadn’t seen him fight until checking out the YouTube clips of his farcical fight with the Tank, is exasperated by why such a mediocre boxer continues to receive such favorable and — more to the point — excessive press. My desire that ESB right its ship is recognition that it does indeed provide a valuable service, but could do so much better.Posted August 21, 2012 12:13 pm
Run fatboy run.
Tomato Can – I think that’s the point. He doesn’t ‘compete’, except against people plucked from the redneck ciruit even worse than himself. He decided to step up vs BERT COOPER and got taken the distance. Feeling waaaaaaaaay overconfident he stepped up again vs Williams, (is he in the top 100?!!!) thinking here was another past his prime, but Williams is not 50 years old like Cooper, and got beaten up.
Apollo Ducked Welliver- this guy makes no money and has no fanbase or tv contract, I don’t even think any promoter wants a part of him. He doesn’t generate any money, but probably just enough to buy burgers and tons of cheap junk food, judging by his disgusting body.Posted August 21, 2012 3:38 am
I’ve listened to Chauncy on, On the Ropes. He seems like a pretty bright guy. But I don’t even see how he competes with his jello frame.Posted August 20, 2012 10:20 pm
My gawd can’t his manager do any better?
Apollo Ducked Welliver
Welliver generates the cash flow, that’s for sure. TMT is going to be offering a huge deal up soon. 50 Cent needs Chauncy Welliver to take over boxing.Posted August 20, 2012 5:51 pm
Is it possible ESB are hyping this complete joke in the knowledge that people will come here and hammer him, which seems to activate ads, thus increasing ad revenue for their pop up ads? Just a thought, because I can’t fathom why he gets so much coverage on here when he is clearly awful.Posted August 20, 2012 1:39 pm
This Welliver’s physical shape is just gross, his boobs are down to his belly button and there is fat just EVERYWHERE. What’s more, he just completely sucks at everything boxing wise. Can anyone name anyone that bad in history that had some kind of ranking? What’s more why doesn’t Williams now inherit this fat bum’s rankings?Posted August 20, 2012 8:12 am
Tony1244-Yeh the rows were empty. And this guy had the audacity to claim that he sold out 50,000 arenas in China and was some major star there and gets mobbed everywhere he goes! Everything about this guy is an outrageous joke and lie.Posted August 19, 2012 4:07 pm
One thing is clear. Chauncy Welliver is the Rodney Dangerfield of ESB. This guy gets no respect. He needs to ask himself why that is. He has over 60 fights, and yet, he hasn’t done squat in most fans eyes. Every time he faces a fighter with a little skill he gets beat. Yet every time he gets beat, he has line of crap as to why he wasn’t himself in the ring that night. I have a message for ESB’s Rodney Dangerfield, quit lounging around in between fights and get your ass into top shape. Start by contacting Alex Ariza, he’ll get you into the shape you need. If you don’t want to do that, just quit already.Posted August 18, 2012 7:51 pm
He talks like he is on the cusp of greatness or a title shot. Lord after watching the Williams fight
Gluesniffer: This website is about boxers and boxing. In case you haven’t noticed, the sport consists of more than just the stars you see on HBO, Showtime, PPV, etc. A big part of boxing is the fighters who are on the fringes of the ratings, the “sometime” contenders, the tough gatekeepers, etc. Sometimes these pugs spring upsets and become factors in the title chase. Other times they put on exciting, gritty losing efforts against the champs. On rare occasions, they actually win world titles. Fight fans like to read about these dudes. Don’t you remember the old days, when the boxing magazines always had articles about popular clubfighters? Don’t you remember the small print articles in the back of the old Ring Magazine? A boxing news website wouldn’t be worth salt if it didn’t cover these kinds of fighters as well. I’ve followed your comments for a couple of years now, and I really don’t understand where you’re coming from.Posted August 18, 2012 4:06 pm
We knocked out Tua.net and the coward who inspired that sight. Bring him to Welliver!Posted August 18, 2012 3:21 pm
I think the 4 and 0 guy will win, Welliver has nothing to offerPosted August 18, 2012 1:02 pm
Maybe he could blind someone with those flying nipples 2 cent.
He mailed it in because he realized he was way over his head. Bad news 2 cent, we have already seen his best night.
The good news for you 2 cent you have more material for a greatest hits CW YouTube. Haha.Posted August 18, 2012 12:09 pm
Anybody beating a Klit is a very long shot. On Chauncy’s best night he could beat them IMO. They are old and frail and Chauncy is extremely durable. He could push one of them to their breaking point. And I would still favor him to go the distance in any loss….versus anyone in the world. That was the worst Chauncy Wellivver in that Tank fight. He fought better and harder than that when he was weighing 270-280. He did better clinch work and infighting against John Sargent when he was 21 years old than he had did against Tank. His boxing on the outside at 283 vs Solis was better movement than he had against Tank. Every other time he has ever been phased a bit by a guys punches he responded with extreme vigor all throughout his career. He did no such things with Tank. It was the worst of every side of him. But that is boxing….a 1 night affair. Everybody has bad days, just ask Wladimir. And that is why Chauncy is still capable of beating a Klitschko. The thing is now, he has much more work to do to get the match than he did before the loss. And he has to change some things up. If he ever loses again, it can only be by knock out or stoppage. He has to refuse to settle for a close fight or the short end of the straw. If he brings his A game he can beat EVERYONE. He just has to push the envelope in the ring. Tank got lucky, Chauncy mailed that one in. And that will never happen again.Posted August 18, 2012 10:02 am
Thanks to youtube, it was clear to see that many Welliver fans were disguised as empty seats. The first 5 rows weren’t even sold out ! Welliver doesn’t sell well in China.Posted August 18, 2012 9:37 am
SBW is a coward. Botha must be desperate enough to take a dive for cash. Bwahahahaha If not, he crushes SBW in 2 rounds or less. Keep ducking Welliver…….if not, SBW will be destroyed so badly that he will never play Rugby or box again. Welliver would handicap him for life.Posted August 18, 2012 8:28 am
I think the fight is an 8 rounder. When someone sheds 50 pounds and goes from 280 to 230 you’d think he’d look good, or at least okay. Thank God for youtube and the internet. Welliver’s physique and ability looked both horrendous. I’m not a “Hater,” I understand what he’s trying to do, I’m just calling him out on it.Posted August 18, 2012 7:36 am
Fight Scribe- you saw what happened when this bum ‘stepped up’ vs Williams (someone not in the top 100).
Chauncy 56-6-5 is the true NZ heavyweight champion as messer would say, funny how chauncy is fighting a 4-0 guy in his next and the Sonny bill williams 5-0 The other NZ heavyweight champ is fighting botha 48-7-3. At least botha has been in with live bodies as of late even thoe hes old and lost his last couple outings, its not bad for SBW 6th pro fight.Posted August 18, 2012 1:20 am
Messer you reckon Welliver can beat both K bros yet got a lesson against Sherman the tank (no disrespect inteneded to the tank as he is one tough son of a gun but no K bro). Messer you have made the call that Fujimoto is no match for Welliver…err umm that is hardly an Einstonian proclamtion…the man has had 4 fights…but here is the kicker…he is still a live dog against a walking hot dog…do you still maintain Welliver can beat both K-bros? Guy has tried to step up twice…once against up and coming Olandier Solis and again against a solid journeyman and both times he was schooled…absolutely schooled.Posted August 18, 2012 12:26 am
This guy is talking himself up after a loss to Sherman the tank…here are the facts of the matter…Welliver can’t punch, refer his record…is unwilling to take on a top 50 contender, refer his record….has not posted a single win over a top 50 heavyweight, refer his record…comes in, in pathetic shape, refer youtube re his last bout with Williams…now here we have him fighting yet another fighter ranked outside the sports top 200 contenders and in all respects a novice…hmmm! Welliver has delivered a master class in how not to brand your brand as a boxer i.e. a serial fighter of bums who pays little regard to stepping up and taking risks as a fighter.Posted August 17, 2012 7:26 pm
Sorry, not going anywhere. It is clear from poster reaction here that ESB does a disservice to its credibility by constantly featuring stories on Chauncey Welliver. The site is already cluttered up with too many press releases disguised as standard journalism. I’m not knocking ESB, I’m telling it like it is because I want ESB to do better and I’d bet most of its readers would appreciate it too.Posted August 17, 2012 7:03 pm
mistake on my part…meant to write he couldn’t knock the wind out of whoopy cushion…and he can’t….unless he sat on itPosted August 17, 2012 5:12 pm
Chauncy’s willingness to step up to the plate and fight a guy with an incredible record of 4-0 with 3 ko’s just goes to show you the the strength and determination of the European heavy weights in general.Posted August 17, 2012 3:12 pm
A brawler huh? So what does that mean when he fights boxers with skills? Hell he couldn’t even beat a journeyman with average skills. He can brawl all he likes but with his paltry KO ratio it means diddly squat in that he could knock the wind out of a whoopy cushion.Posted August 17, 2012 8:35 am
Exactly man. Chauncy is a brawler and he needs to brawl. He has the ability to throw caution into the wind and let his hands go non stop. His chin and stamina are the real deal. If they feed him some real food before this Tokyo fight he should be able to go in there with the energy to make it a fantasticly entertaining fight. This Williams bout straight sucked but that is the bottom of the barrel for Welliver. When he brings his A Game and A Gameplan, he can and will light his opponent up. This Fujimoto fella is no match for his best. Boxing folks will celebrate this beat down.Posted August 16, 2012 10:12 pm
What kind of management does Welliver have?…..this guy managed a limited but tough guy named Joe Hipp (who never even really had a knowledgable trainer) and then a string of bums before. Whats the point?….why waste the money and time?Posted August 16, 2012 9:17 pm
Let me get this straight. This guy lost his Panda title to a journeyman, now he’s fighting a guy with 4 whole professional fights???? Welliver, is a nice enough guy, for a pactard, but he’s nothing more than comic relief here on ESB. That’s a good thing though, listening to this guy’s delusions of why he lost, and what he’s going to do next is hilarious. I hope ESB keeps showcasing Chancy. I doubt they’ll be able to for long, though, cause I think the K1 dude is going to win. I just hope this fight isn’t a four rounder, or some BS like that.Posted August 16, 2012 8:16 pm
His flabby presentation of fitness is very annoying to me. Sherman Tank made Chancy look bad.
FA, I agree. Welliver looked so bad against Williams that he may be no match for this undefeated Japanese guy with a UFC background. :twisted:Posted August 16, 2012 7:28 pm
WTF. How any commission would approve Welliver facing an opponent with just 4 pro bouts is beyond me.Posted August 16, 2012 6:14 pm
he showed a good chin. if he just had the stamina, he could have made it a closer fightPosted August 16, 2012 5:50 pm
Boxing Fanatic- Ok dude. The shape he turns up in his next fight and how he fights will really determine how much respect he gets. It was the first time I had seen him properly and I was pretty shocked. The way he was hurt vs Williams does worry me for him. Good luck to him anyway, we will see.Posted August 16, 2012 5:44 pm
reality — no harm taken. we r allowed to speak our minds here. this is the internet :wink: anyway, this is actually the 1st time ive seen chauncy fight except for the crappy vids of him on ‘tube. hes just not contender material. nobody fights c-ns and get to be contender material. he will be a gatekeeper no doubt and could make some money doing so. i just hope he comes in some decent shape in sept and make this fight with kyotaro a brawl! he could get some respect from the boxing community by doing soPosted August 16, 2012 5:40 pm
Boxing Fanatic- maybe I was a bit too harsh. I do feel a bit sorry for him, he obviously was obese and admirably lost a lot of weight and the resulting excess skin is horrible. Boxing is not for him I don’t think and I don’t want the dude to get hurt so I think he should take his next winnings and invest it and get out. Even though it’s his future he could seriously get hurt. Despite the hype here on ESB he doesn’t seem to stand a chance, he doesn’t have any real pulling power and definitely doesn’t have enough talent to get a shot.
Tony1244- I have to completely agree. I have never seen anything like this; a boxer getting hurt, calling time out and being given breaks. His performance was appalling, outboxed, beaten up, timid, scared, no power, no idea -just completely lame. His body is like a sumo that went on a crash diet. How does his woman feel with his giant boobs all over the place? With his next earnings he should seriously get a breast reduction for himself.
PS. Chauncy should do a bra commercial.Posted August 16, 2012 5:02 pm
After watching Williams-Welliver on utube, frankly I was wrong about Welliver. He is no journeyman. He is not mediocre. He is much worse than that. He is a professional wrestler wearing boxing gloves. He called time outs after being hit. Those time-outs were granted. That ref is the most talkative guy I’ve ever seen. I’d hate to be stuck next to him on a plane. He just wouldn’t shut up. Chauncy is a sad clown.Posted August 16, 2012 5:01 pm
I don’t care about Chauncy Welliver or any other crappy journeyman heavyweight. Why does ESB care?Posted August 16, 2012 4:15 pm
reality — u pretty much said it all and didnt hold back on anything! LOL yeah, his body was quite revolting(sorry chauncy, no hard feelings. i could lose 20 myself :oops: ). my brother has the same problem being overly obese at 1 time. i just dont think he was physically prepared for this fight just by the look of him. he was weak, unresponsive, almost like he was shot like roy jones jr. chauncy definitely needs to work on his cardio and get some better eating habits if he wants to be at least competitive with kyotaro. i like chauncy. ive spoken to him many times here on esb. he really is a cool guy and really respectful. i just hope he reads this stuff on here and says lets do this, chauncy!Posted August 16, 2012 3:46 pm
Boxing Fanatic- I saw that ‘fight’ on Youtube and was shocked at how poor Welliver is, he was outmuscled, outskilled and hurt a lot by Williams, the commentators were saying how Welliver kept making excuses to the ref in the fight and were incredulous at the relative close scores, they gave Welliver 2 rounds and said they were being generous. He was beaten up in every single department and his physique is just revoltingly awful. He looked like he didn’t want to fight and had no clue how to.
First and foremost you have to win. Honestly I think it could be time to retirePosted August 16, 2012 3:02 pm
i saw the sherman fight with welliver. williams was kicking the crap out of him. chauncy was out of his league. i wish him luck. hes gonna need it against this guyPosted August 16, 2012 2:59 pm
Why is he constantly on ESB?Posted August 16, 2012 2:15 pm
Chauncy by fighting guys like this you are going nowhere. I hope you are making money because if you don’t win this one, you are finish. I hope you know that.Posted August 16, 2012 1:02 pm
As an er..’athlete’ and boxer this guy just suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks big time. He has boobs any playgirl would be proud of, zero power and even less credibility. Sherman Williams beat the life out of him. He is just about a journeyman. At least the fat joker will lose again, no doubt he will still get publicity from ESB.Posted August 16, 2012 12:29 pm
Unfortunately for Chaunce, this fight is really about Fugimota, not Chaunce. Hopefully, Welliver will make the fight about him, by winning big. If not, this will probably be the last time he sees a payday this size.Posted August 16, 2012 12:22 pm
Why do guys like Chauncy who have absolutely no punch at all constantly predict, in detail, how they’re “gonna knock this guy out”? Please go on with the job Welliver and beat some decent opposition for a change first!Posted August 16, 2012 11:49 am
Welliver could provide an entertaining tune-up for Fury, before Tyson steps up to more serious opponents in 2014. Chauncy should also consider fighting other up and comers like Price, Mitchell, Perez, or Helenius. Moreover, the big dogs could learn something from him: which is to stay busy and keep fighting a lot.Posted August 16, 2012 11:29 am

Anyone who has spent any time in Tokyo knows what a huge city it is. CW fought in Tianjin a while back too which is another huge city. Anyone who makes the effort to fight in north east Asia gets some props from me. Drawing in the populations of China, Japan, South Korea, etc will help boxing and help boxers generate some money.Posted August 16, 2012 11:28 am
Get a life man. You have no clue about Welliver. You better be around to take your licks when he brings the HW Championship to ESB. The Klits will get hunted down!Posted August 16, 2012 11:17 am
Hell yeah! Knock his arse cold Chauncy. And show these haters that PandaMania will never die.Posted August 16, 2012 11:14 am
I’m actually interested in this fight… more in terms of Kyotaro. Assuming Kyotaro leaves with a victory, I’d like to see how far he can go in boxing.
Or, you could give yourself a nick like “gluesniffer” and mistakenly expect people to give you any credibility for anything you say. You posted to knock Chauncey and East Side Boxing. Time for you to leave. For good.Posted August 16, 2012 9:53 am
I read this crap after I commented. Of course he “wasn’t there” in the Williams fight and he says he doesn’t know why he couldn’t do what he wanted in the ring. I know why; Williams can fight and every other single opponent Welliver fought couldn’t fight with the exception of an obese Solis, and we all know how that turned out.Posted August 16, 2012 9:42 am
Beaten by Sherman Williams.. Contender?Posted August 16, 2012 9:41 am
I don’t think Roberto Cammarelle will go terribly far in pro boxing, but I welcome him to pro boxing just so he can match Chauncey and knock CW’s fat, fatuous, self-promoting, asinine ass into 2015.Posted August 16, 2012 9:23 am
If you have the gumption to actually read this interview, you relearn some things you already know — for example, that CW is a clown — and learn some new things, such as CW is pathetically delusional. ESB, not exactly a credible (though sometimes useful) source to begin with, continues to lose more and more credibility by licking CW’s knob.Posted August 16, 2012 9:18 am

This guy is the biggest joke ever. 60 odd fights, never, ever beaten an opponent in the top 100. Stopped vs the only top 100 guy he fought (Solis). For some reason claims he is the New Zealand hw champion despite being born in and residing in Washington (didn’t he just say he was American in this interview?). Has the most useless, unknown trinkets of ‘belts’ ever.
this guy makes me have to post!! its embarassing!!!Posted August 16, 2012 6:37 am

Chaunceiwll have his rematch with Wiiliams late this year, then he’ll get line for the vacant WBC title. My guess is Arreola and Mitchell are going to fight for it, and should Chuancey string together Williams, Gavern, and a Gerber……well…..he’d certainly be an entertaining prospect for the new wbc titlist.
Sad this is though, With Suleiman essentially ruling out unification, the WBC titlist will hide behind that disclaimer to even further thin out the solid contenders and fringe contedners.Posted August 16, 2012 5:00 am
Bugger! I thought that after his last fight showed that this bloke is not anything in this division. But still we have ESB sucking this guy. Get it in your head. Nobody gives a flyiong any more!Posted August 16, 2012 4:42 am
Chauncy Welliver is a journey man. If he was any better than that with over 60 fights he would have been World Champion by now.Posted August 16, 2012 3:57 am
Fujimoto has a huge following there because of his K-1 success. And he’s now the only real HW boxer they have (Takahara? was a poor excuse) so any success he has is going to be a huge deal there. He’s faced pretty strong competition for only 4 fights (at least in 2 of them he beat a recognizable name) and having Welliver in his fifth fight is comparable to how fast Pulev moved along. I wonder though if he’ll step it up further, or fight a few more guys like Chauncy and try to bring Klitschko over. That fight would be monstrous in Japan, but it only works if Fujimoto doesn’t lose, and his boxing-only skills aren’t world class I don’t think. So Chauncey might be as tough a fight as he takes. It’s sort of the “Mormeck” strategy.Posted August 16, 2012 3:47 am
When your minds sees what you should do but can`t do it, that isn`t anything to do with nutritious food. That is just choking and it isn`t something that you are going to resolve without being honest with yourself about it. When you`ve had 50 fights and Sherman Williams is the second best name you`ve fought, you just don`t really have a track record to be saying something was an off night.Posted August 16, 2012 3:42 am
