Default Dont be suprised to see Pavlik Hopkins first

I can see Bernard wiggling his way into a fight with Pavlik before Pavlik defends against Taylor. He can fight Hopkins at 68 and then drop back down for the rematch with Taylor.

Surely that fight wouldn't sell. Who the **** wants to see Pavlik fight an old man?

I think Bernard should stay away from pavlik at this stage of his career he'd be in big trouble

It is not that easy to cut so much weight to go down back to 160. That\'s another factor that is not good for Hopkins.

It would be competitive. Pavlik would make Hopkins work a lot more, but Hopkins wouldnt be getting hit as cleanly as Taylor was with all those bull**** rights.

Do you guys who are posting in this thread even follow boxing! The Pavlik/taylor rematch is a done deal set for Febrauary 16th. It is not a title defense because it is set for a catchweight of 166#. The rematch and the catchweight were both part of the contract for the first fight. now repeat after me: FROM NOW ON I WILL ACTUALLY FOLLOW BOXING BEFORE I TRY TO TALK ABOUT IT!

Hopkins would beat Pavlik! but considering Pavlik stays at Middleweight for a while n hopkins can not get down past light heavy! then that fight would not even happen! by the time Pavlik will move up which will be in 3 years to super middle will still not be a light heavy n hopkins will be 46 or something damn!
