I think Lacy should go after his IBF title.

As long as he stays away from anyone who can actually BOX well he should be ok.

Here's a wild guess on Lacy's future.

One or two tune up fights.

Then an IBF Title eliminator against Vitali Tsypko. (Who's ranked #2 by the IBF)

The winner get's a shot at the IBF Champion. (Hopefully the man in my avatar. )

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.
If you watch some other Pavlik fights you'll pick up on some things that Pavlik can do that Lacy cannot. Don't judge him on just the Miranda and Taylor fights. He's way more multifaceted than Lacy. He can fight going back and off his back foot. Lacy by comparison is ponderous.

Lacy can't throw a punch unless he's set up and flat footed. Plus when Lacy throws he throws so hard he leaves himself wide open. He doesn't have the variety of punches that Pavlik does. Lacy doesn't seem to understand the subtleties of boxing because he's not a boxer but purely a power puncher. He doesn't know a defensive punch even exists. He doesn't box throwing punches to set up punches. He just swings for the fences.

And as Joe Calzaghe so brilliantly showed us an accomplished boxer beats the snot out of a limited puncher come rain or shine.

But Pavlik would lamp him all night long. He isnt a skilled boxer like Taylor

There simply is not enough LSD in the world to justify that delusion.

Lacy took a one sided beating. His corner should have pulled him out. By not intervening to prevent a brave Lacy taking a pounding, they may well have shortened or damaged his boxing career. I hope that Lacy can make a comeback as he showed in that fight that he has the heart of a lion. I do not think a rematch would be in his interests now or in the future.
