Only good think about a Pavlik match is the US exposure and thats all.
Dont think that it would be on neutral ground. Both have shown a willingness to travel, but neither have done well in big fights when they do.
I agree that Pavlik hasnt done much at SMW. I dont think AA has done a great deal and think this era is at weak time. Though would agree AA has done more with the wins over Wilczewski and Steiglitz, though I thought Steiglitz slightly edged it on workrate.
I dont really know why Bute would need US exposure, everyone knows who he is, as the fighter Ward didnt seem to want to face, and overall there are more fights for him in Europe.
Pavlik hasnt done anything for a while now
