Re: Pavlik is a bad fight for ward
Just a follow-up...Another decent option for Pavlik, if he's willing to take the extra step, would be to force Abraham's hand and become his mandatory by beating Kessler...assuming Kessler is willing. Froch will likely be tied up 'til the middle of '13 with Bute and Stevenson( his mandatory) and Pavlik will have to fight before then.
If Kessler doesn't take the bait then a Ward matchup might actually be the only viable option... if the money is right. If not, then Edwin Rodriguez is the ONLY option for Pavlik.
