According to the California and Nevada State Athletic Commission, if an athlete is knocked out in the ring they are suspended from competing actively for 90 days, at which time they need doctor's clearance to get back into the ring to fight. It is done so that a fighter won't go in with a possibly life-shortening injury, get into the ring and have it worsen or kill them on the spot. As we all know, not too many fighters have steady incomes, and it helps protect the fighter from playing the tough guy role to fatal consequences.

With that in mind, the earliest Wandy would be cleared by either commission to fight state-side would be December 10th. Obviously, much later than what they would theasibly want as far as selling a card, and much longer than they would want to keep Chuck off of a PPV card. Considering that, the chances of this fight happening keeps dwindling away as the days pass.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
