Are you for real ?? Lacy lost every single second of that fight hand down. Joe put a classic ass whuppin on the poor guy. I felt sorry for Lacy that night (yeah, I picked Lacy to win, I admit)

Are you serious? Lacy had Calzaghe wobbled several times in the first rounds, but unfortunately he ran out of steam.

The Calzaghe fans should pray that Lacy redeems himself to some level of legitimacy.

It would do wonders for Calzaghe's legacy.

I would pick Lacy by KO over Pavlik.

Yeah, if Calzaghe dared rematch Lacy, I'm sure Lacy would finish what he started in the first fight and KO Calzaghe. I'll say Lacy KO3.

Great news and great list. I would personally love too see Lacy against Andrade. That would be a classic. Lacy would have troubles with Andrades unhuman chin and stamina.

Also I'd like too see him against Pavlik - that would be a classic as well.

He should stay away from Kessler (and Calzaghe ).

Bute would be one hell of a fight too...

Yes, Calzaghe was much better, but Lacy also fought a terrible fight. He wasn't even punching hard, looking overtrained (musclebound) and mentally frozen.

Sure, Joe gets all credit for that, but Jeff certainly at least could have thrown hard punches. He wasn't there at all mentally.

I pray for Lacy- all that power came from his back and shoulders you know? So we will see if it can stand the rigors of the ring... God bless and good luck Lacy!!

I like Jeff Lacy. He's from my neck of the woods and I think he's a class act but I terribly overestimated him. To my defense I was rooting for a hometown fighter and sort of blinded to the realities. Even to the point of dismissing Winky Wright nearly demolishing him in a sparring session. I had first hand accounts and for some reason I thought it was just bad day or a fluke that a guy that much smaller than him took him school.

Then it happened again in England.

I'm sorry but he's nowhere near the league of Pavlik. He's tough as nails but very limited. Even in Reid fight there were signs that a decent boxer could have his way with him.

I agree with all of that apart from the bit about Pavlik. Pavlik is as flat footed as Lacy, he is a come forward, slow fighter with very nice power. He wont box Lacy, he cannot do what Calzaghe did and he cannot move out of range, his only advantage is the jab but he still basically is in range and slugging it out.

The difference is that Lacy has a great chin and Pavlik has a very average one. Both men get hit, both stand and trade power shots, Pavliks chin cannot take Lacys power, Lacys chin can take enough of Pavliks shots to get off his own power punches and win by stoppage.
