I'm a little worried about Pavlik for this fight. Taylor made him look amatuerish and totally confused about what to do at times during that fight. I can only imagine what Hopkins will do. I hope Kelly doesn't over rely on the double jab right hand like he does for every fight. Him and Loew need to come up with a different strategy against Hopkins.

B-HOP is going to run circles around Pavlik! I like Pavik but I dont think he'll beat B-hop, and if he doe's, by a close decision!

Nope, Kelly has shown he can knockout guys who never have been, but Bernard is too slick. He's been in there with the best for a very long time and will do enough to avoid Kelly's power but will lose on workrate. And if it does happen I see it happening early.

I don't think Pavlik looked amateurish at all, I think he boxed very well. Secondly, the double jab is what prevents the counterpunch, which is what Hopkins does, so for Pavlik's sake, he better stick to the double jab.

Bhop is hard as crap to KO. The guy got an iron chin, slick, slips, holds, and fake injuries. Pavlik by KO? Dream on!

Hopkins will make sure he doesn't get knocked out, stopped or hurt. For the past couple of years thats his priority. Bernie is willing to put only so much on the line, even if it costs him the fight. And as long as he keeps getting fights with high profile guys for the big bucks, this will continue. Of course if Pavlick beats him convincingly, his stock will drop farther than the ice cube company in Alaska.

I think with Pavlik, there's a very good chance of seeing Bernard retire on his stool at around the 8th round...
