What does Pavlik have to lose? Nobody thinks he can win anyway so he has a lot to win and nothing to lose. If he loses even every round it will leave him where he is right now along with everyone else in and around wards weight. And if he wins somehow it will go down as one of the biggest comebacks of all times.
He can probably make decent moeny in the fight and he is not going to be in there with a destroyer that is going to put a lot of hurt on him.
The guy who should be afraid is Andrea Ward If Pavlik unleashes on him the way he can. Pavlik can pretty much put a career ending beat down on him and he could never be the same again. Pavlik has runined boxers before.
