He didn't even win yet and these threads are showing up.

The hype Pavlik is going to get after he KO's Taylor will be really annoying. I can already see Pavlik-Monzon being discussed in less than a month.

Benn is a near-ATG at 168, Pavlik is not.

That's not the point. There's no way to dicuss Pavlik vs Benn seriously since Pavlik is still an unproven fighter at the top level. The fact that Pavlik is a 160 pounder right now makes it even more meaningless to discuss.

I think Povetkin-Frazier would be one hell of a fight, but making a thread about it would just be silly.

Benn would have been too savage for Pavlik in his prime, He would have steam rolled Kelley like he did Iran Barkley..

yeah and if you thought that povetkin and frazier would be competitive it would not be a bad post

you dont have to pit guys with great records like frazier against each other all the time, that is the point of my post to see if people think Pavlik Benn would be a good matchup and competitive and i think it would.

what is wrong with matching up a very good looking prospect with an ATG if you think it would be a good fight i really dont see the problem

Sums it up really. Pavlik still has a big hurdle to jump today before these things can even begin to be talked about

yeah i was just thinking the same thing, just save all the kelly vs this that and the other after the fight.cause if he lost to taylor i dout very serious someone would ask kp vs gm.

let him win the fight 1st, dont start it yet kids.

There's just no way to make serious or realistic arguments about it.. so these kinds of threads just end up looking very nuthuggery.

I like Povetkin, i think the moment he starts to thrash world class fighters he will reignite the flame that was blown out the night Douglas beat Iron Mike..

I was shocked on how he walked through bombs with such tunnel vision like he had a higher adjenda than us when i took Friday Ahunanya to fight him.. He was like a machine that punched from very strange angles.. He is very unique and his self beleif is only second to a young Evander Holyfield.

Benn punches considerably harder than Taylor. McClellan punches significantly harder than Pavlik. Enough said.

if pavlik has a tough time taking taylors punches then the sadistic benn smashes him, and brutally. benn by mid round ko.
