Default Eat Crow Thread

Let me be one of the first to congratulate Kelly on a hard fought win. Both fighters showed grit and determination but the better man won tonight. Now its time to go eat some humble pie.

Taylor looked to have Pavlik licked. Pavlik was doing the chicken dance..
I can't believe how Taylor folded so suddenly :(

I think that right to the head would have folded anyone quickly.

I'm out for six months - so I'll have to allow Mr Amsterdam to carry the Calzaghe banner, even though I still maintain he got the ****ysis/pick of this fight wrong.

Laters guys.
I didn't get the ****ysis wrong, I laid out that Taylor could not handle pressure well and would be driven to the ropes like he did against Wright many times, which happened. I said that Taylor was not a much better fighter in terms of skill than Pavlik and was terribly flawed with a bad defence, that was evident.

Pavlik won the 1st, was winning the second before the knockdown, then fought extra cautiously for the next several close rounds after it because of the KD and an apparant broken nose.

When he regained control, he walked him down like I said he would. I didn't get it completely on target, but I was correct in my ****ysis.

The poster who was 100% on target was 'Brooklyn1550', many props to Brooklyn for his great ****ysis and prediction.

Hey give me my new avatar and sig.

All props to Pav for having a granite chin. No excuses.

I said Taylor would win. I give credit to Kelly Pavlik, he's a helluva fighter. He was the one that kept doing what was working eventhough he was getting hit hard back.

Jack Presscot, where are you, you ignorant ****?

Looks like you know "Jack" about boxing.
Here's some advice: think hard before you post next time.

I said Taylor would win by UD. Props to Kelly and those who picked him to win. I don't think anyone at 160 can touch him. IMO there's no need for a rematch because Kelly would win again.

Thank you

We were treated to an excellent night of boxing and there should be plenty more to come this year.

I know you certainly enjoyed round 7

There need to be some people eating crow about the Berto fight here as well. Lets not hide behind your correct Pavlik predictions.

good to have fans like you lillarry. i know the feeling of eating crow. you should've been here before pavlik-miranda, being a miranda fan i was talkin heaps of **** about miranda KO'ing pavlik. thank god i picked pavlik to win this time. taylor made a good account of it though, and was definitely out to prove something. he was winning slightly prior to the KD, and he should'nt be written off just yet.

Thumbs up Re: Eat Crow Thread

I was rooting for Pavlik but I thought he would lose to JT.

Wow. This crow tastes like chicken.
