Re: Pavlik is a bad fight for ward
I like Pavik and would love to see him atleast make this a good fight if it happnes. I just don't think he'll give Ward too many problems.
Pavlik is past his best and even at his peak he could never beat Ward. Pavlik was a good middleweight but Ward could end up going down as a great one. At this point Ward probably wins 10 rounds minimum and I could clearly see him forcing a stoppage in the later rounds.
It would be interesting to see how much credit Ward would get for beating Pavlik. There will be some who say Pavlik is a washed up drunk and give Ward no credit. Others will view Pavlik as past his best but still a good fighter and give Ward credit for beating him, epsecially if he does it convingly, if this fight ever happens.
