Default Taylor wants a slugfest

"Taylor relishes the opportunity to swap power shots."
I think Taylor is going into this fight thinking he has a lot to prove, because of the public outcry he has suffered from his last two fights. He is going to ignore Manny's instruction, try to go toe to toe, and his pride is going to get him KTFO.

I wonder if he really will be aggressive and trade shots. That would be a strategic nightmare for him. If he does slug with Pavlik, it will be over in 5 rounds.

total bullshit, if he trades with pavlik he looses. He'll do the same as he always does and go for a spilt decision.

I think he can go toe to toe with Pavlik and win, but will just have to see come fight time.

I think there's a big difference between a slugfest and a shootout. A slugfest would be standing flat-footed and trading like Gatti/Ward. For a shootout, I think of two guys fighting all offense, but usually incorporating movement, changing speeds and overall taking a more sophisticated approach.

I agree a slugfest would not be in Taylor's best interests, but he has a very good chance in a shootout.

My guess is that's what he has in mind.

Kostya Tszyu wa light years ahead of anything Witter's faced

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.

I'm sorry, but Hatton is an elite fighter. You don't become an undisputed champion at 140 and a title holder at 140 beating Kostya Tszyu, Jose Luis Castillo, Luis Collazo, and Vince Phillips without being a world class fighter. Yes, he may be hyped by those who think he will beat Mayweather, because he definitely will not, but that doesn't take away from the fact that he is an elite fighter.

When Mayweather beats him, people who call Hatton a "hype job" etc. shouldn't give Mayweather a massive amount of praise calling him "the GOAT" or "top 10 all time."
