i agree 110%

Bingo - and he was rocked by Hopkins, who's not exactly known as a devastating puncher, particularly as he got older.

Pavlik is going to show just HOW questionable this guy's chin is! He is going to DESTROY him, and knock him out cold. Earlier than people think, too.

there are a ton of shitty fighters have gone the distance with Wright and Hopkins. Going the distance with both of them is not an indicator that you've a good chin. Also, it's not like taylor is some technically flawless fighters. Pavlik might just be more technically sound

Exactly. Taylor's chin is questionable, at best. Saturday, we find out if it's even worse.

U cant judge someones power or chin by one punch. Even if Hopkins stunned Taylor, it doesn't mean he was hurt on the verge of taking a knee...he could have been stunned but obviously he was able to continue. I personally have watched their fights a couple of times and dont recall where he was hurt by Hopkins...you could have been listening to the HBO commentators who blow everything out of proportion to spark up a boring fight.
Again, you cannot judge someones power or chin by one punch... would it be fair by saying Hopkins is a powerful puncher because he knocked down Tarver as an "old man" while Roy Jones wasn't able to do it?
And til this day, Taylor hasn't been to the canvas, while other guys like Miranda who people were so amazed that Pavlik KO'd him, had been knocked down before coming into Pavlik's fight.

I'd say Taylor was a little wobbled by a Hopkins punch in their 1st fight, but I've always felt it was more due to fatigue than anything else. I'm not so sure it's an indicator of how good or bad his chin is.
Ultimately, I do think Jermain's chin is untested, which is what makes this fight with Pavlik so enticing.

We shall see...

Yeah right, Taylor will win on points.

Kelly can outmuscle crap like Miranda but Taylor can box, Spinks would outbox Pavlik too.

Spinks beat Taylor.

Pavlik won't be able to walk through shots to give shots with any proper Middleweight. He can be reckless against the Edison Miranda's of the world but not proper top 10 skilled Middleweights.

No. you don't have to have a good chin to go the distance with wright or hopkins. You have an average at best chin if you don't go the distance w/ b-hop, and a china chin if you don't go it w/ winky. Do
you even watch boxing?

If Taylor would have actually let his hands go instead of checking Spinks out the entire fight he probably would have won more clearly

Pavlik fights with more pressure, stamina and a lot more punching power than Taylor. Spinks would be screwed and not strong enough to hold Pavlik off

Taylor sucks balls but he acutally has a jab and Isn't reckless.

Even If Pavlik Ko'ed Spinks, Kelly would be down on the cards, Spinks evasive tactics could make Kelly miss alot and drain his stamina that way.
