I reckon if he never did that he would still be the main guy at 160, A showdown between Pavlik & Abraham would of been great.
Completely disagree because Pavlik has had major issues with alcohol abuse/bad lifestyle issues. Imo he would not have remained middleweight king all this time because of this.

A genuine 50-50 coin flip fight that goes the distance. Impossible to pick a winner imo.

Great fight but imo prime middle Hopkins (Bhop from the Tito fight) beats the version of Toney when he was at 160. What do you think ?

not sure the version that beat Nunn was pretty good. If Toney came in the best shape of his life i couldn't go past him. He also had the edge in power. Not knocking B-Hop but at middle besides Tito (a welter) who did he beat. Still he is a hell of a fighter and I agree its pick em fight but i'm going with lights out!

I'll say this the Nunn that turned up to ice Kalambay in the 1st round would give them all curry..........when Toney beat him is was clear that he came in undertrained due to the fact that he under estimated him..........even though Toney got the KO late he had his ears boxed off for the best part of the first 8 rounds.........Nunn had it all but lack of discipline cost him badly.
