Yeh, even though Miranda is a really big guy I don't really buy into the "dead at the weight" as a reason he lost to Pavlik. He didn't show as many signs and symptoms that are usually displayed when someone is dead at the weight. He was able to take A LOT of punishment before the first knock down. He also seemed to get tired in fights leading up to the Pavlik fight. If you're dead at the weight you shouldn't be able to take as much punishment as he did and throw as many punches as he was able to in the Pavlik fight.
