Default Re: Taylor wants a slugfest

On topic, i agree with Lampley regarding Taylor wanting a shootout more so than a slugfest. I believe that this is a good match up of styles and will produce plenty of fireworks.

Taylor will use his jab, shuffle back, and come out swinging when pushed to the ropes.

Pavlik will keep coming, and coming, and coming!!

This has FOTY written all over it IMO

Hatton is an elite fighter. It's crazy to think he is not. And if he is NOT an elite fighter, then shame on PBF for fighting him at this stage in his career right?

I, for one, cannot wait until the 29th. It should be a fantastic start to the next few months which promise to be a fight-fan's dream.

Slugfest - Taylor wins.

Boxing - Taylor wins.

It's not going to really make a difference.

Taylor's pride is damaged and I would not be surprised to see him try and slug it out. I believe he thinks he has something to prove.

I agree Taylor can fight any type of fight and still win.

Slugfest - Pavlik wins
Boxing - Pavlik wins, but Taylor has a decent chance in this type of fight

Taylor could beat Abraham, Sturm, Duddy, Sylvester, and Karmazin in my opinion, but I don't see him beating Kelly Pavlik.

It doesn't matter what Floyd says. He calls himself the best ever. That doesn't make it true.

Please, Gatti is no where near the fighter Ricky Hatton is. Mark these words: Mayweather/Hatton will be more competitive than Mayweather/Gatti.

Let me make this simple for you. If you believe PBF is the best fighter in the world, and I do, then LOSING to him will not make you a bum.

You become a ring champion and a 2 division world champion defeating potentially 2 hall of famers both by stoppages and you are elite...bottom line.

He gets picked apart by Mayweather and will lose a wide decision, although unlike Gatti, I think he wont get stopped and will actually win more than 0 rounds.

Mayweather might win but he wont do it in an entertaining way, his usual one punch at a time make you miss type of fight. Just for once I would like to see Mayweather in war, his fights are rather boring.

It sure sounds like you're a Witter fan with sour grapes because Hatton hasnt fought him yet.

Relax, there's a fair chance Witter will get a shot AFTER th PBF vs Hatton fight. If Witter's smart he does all he can to get Malignaggi or Rees in the meantime. He's already called out PM and If i were him?? I might even be willing to come Stateside for that fight.

Get the win, get US exposure, and that will position him right where he needs to be for Hatton.
Witter would of beaten the Tszyu and Castillo's that Hatton fought.

As for Taylor he should box Pavlik, he will win a clear decision If he does. Miranda was nothing special.

Hatton is 10 times the fighter Gatti is/was

That's an absurd statement!!!!!!!!!!!!

There's no shame in either man losing.

Floyd's the favorite and has height and stylistic advantages, but Hatton will make him work and may very well push floyd harder than he ever has.
