watch the fight again on espn360.com; you will see lee was killing him...the ONLY factor was fatigue!!!....NO EXCUSE FOR THAT!!!!!!!!
Lee needs alot more than stamina training.Ok he was beating a c-level middleweight handily for first 3 or 4 rnds but to say only his lack of stamina was his downfall is wrong.
Pavlik could go 15 rnds at a blazing pace.Lee could barely go 6.If he is spending all day every at the gym what the hell is he doing.Where was the guy who was besting Taylor in sparring?
