Default Re: Which fighters today, above all else, want to prove they're the best?

Today most fighters seem to have their business-smarts with them. Who's still old-school?

I'll give a shout for Pavlik. Took on hard-hitting Miranda and decided he was just going to have to back him up, and that's what he did. Immediately after? Taylor. Not one or two easy fights now that he's somewhat of 'name', nope, right at the champ. If he loses, he's back to square one, but then again, he's not thinking of loss. He's thinking of that big shiny belt.
Well after 30 easy fights and one hard fight(on paper) I don't think he needed two more easy fights.
