On the other hand you have Pavlik who has been in the trenches with tough tough contenders and knocked them all out including Taylor. You have to respect that. They are both gentleman, but one seems more legit than the other.
I would perfere to see Duddy take on a bigger name on 23rd Feb, but it looks as if Duddy's team have a no-risk agenda, until he fights Pavlik.
