Miranda is a class a puncher that is for sure, but I do not remember Miranda hitting Pavlik clean, he was mainly firing off the back foot and looking tired and not his usual self.

Good! That's what people wants to see. Pavlik will trade so he'll get what he wants.

Now . . . let's see who'll remain standing after the smoke clears up.



Go JT!!!!

Taylor would actually be better off in a slugfest, imo. Pavlik is very easy to hit, has an orthodox basic style, and tends to become off balance when he misses his sloppy shots. Plus, add to the fact that JT has a considerable speed advantage over Pavlik, I like his chances in a slugfest.

The power is not even remotely comparable. The Ouma fight tells you everything you need to know about Taylor's mediocre power, considering LMW punchers have hurt Ouma badly and Taylor could not so much as drop him.

Pavlik would have had Ouma out in 3 rounds.
Okay, I am going to say something basic here.

In boxing, you do not go into the ring and compare and contrast strengths, you fight. Pavlik hits harder than Taylor, I know this, but it won't matter if Taylor is getting his shots off first. And that is where experience comes in. Taylor has fought awkward styles, and in my opinion lost a lot of championship fights, but all that means nothing now, he is not fighting an awkward man, he is fighting a man who is going to stand right there in front of him. This is Taylor's dream fight come true.

nah...pavlik is a tough dude..the guy is too tough for JT to slug with unless JT keeps his chin tucked and his gloves up to at block pavliks shots....JT will land clean and flush on pavlik but he needs to work pavliks body quick fast and in a hurry or he will crumble himself..

Exactly. Taylor will not have to look hard to find his target with Pavlik. Contrast his style with that of Hopkins, Wright, or Spinks. All of those guys rarely get hit flush, where as Pavlik comes in to take a few shots to give a few shots. The problem for him will come when hes taking 2 or 3 consistantly before he can get his offense gng.

Pavlik is a very basic fighter, granted, hes a very good basic fighter but basic no less.

I'm a fan of both but Taylor is going to win this whether it's a slugfest or not.

I really don't see how Taylor wins in a slugest. I only see him winning if he goes back to his jab, hits Pavlik and moves away to AVOID getting into exchanges and plays it safe.

Move away?

AVOID?

Plays it safe?

Not with Kelly. JT better be on his A+ game & even still, KP will pressure him, wear him down, find his chin & that will be the end of Taylors undefeated record.
