A truly competitivel 3 fight series, as opposed to Manny Paquiao kicking the dogshit out of yet another 3 named Mexican legend 3 straight times, is what boxing needs right now.
Only in the eyes of American viewers with a limited knowledge about the world picture at middleweight (aka HBO).
If not for monetary terms, Pavlik vs. Abraham would be the right fight but nearly no one knows Abraham in the US - so a rematch between Pavlik and Taylor is the fight to be made.
