    the dude got his title shot the right way, by earning it in the ring and putting on a show in doing so. . . . Boxing needs more Pavliks.

    Not really . . . or maybe yes, but only in this board. :D

    Notice the odds for the fight? JT is still the favorite. :yep

    :happy Ding. We have a winner. Amazing how people forget the past and that he fought and was 2-0-1 against two world class opponents who are head a shoulders above Kelly.

    It isn't that they forget he has wins over both Wright and Hopkins, who respectively should be higher P4P than Pavlik.

    What they remember however is that Taylor BARELY got by a 40 year old Bernard Hopkins, as well as an aging Winky Wright whom Sam Sollimon virtually took to task.

    Alot of us on this board had Taylor pegged as a guy who would struggle with Edison Miranda. I still believe this is the case. Taylor has never faced a big, young middleweight who will bring the pressure AND power to him. Just think he was momentarily hurt by Hopkins. Pavlik hits significantly harder than Hopkins.

    So yes, he fought two aging tactical masters, and brought the W on his youth and energy. This time he is going in with a guy who is just as young, who hits harder and has just as much energy if not more. And who can really say if Taylor learned anything from his three matches in P4P land. He sure didn't show it against Cory Spinks.

    As I said only on this board. Pav is the underdog in their incoming fight. You can say that indeed he is over HYPED if the odds tags him as the favorite.

    He's not getting overhyped, his fans are telling it like it is, he's a fighter with not much skill but has heart/chin/power and is very aggressive. No one is saying he's Muhammad Ali, just a tough aggressive fighter which he truly is.

    I do not think that Kelly is over hyped, he is the number 1 contender and he is deserving of what he is getting.

    That being said, Taylor TKO7

    He has earned his shot way more than most any fighter around has. He is number one. Taylor tried to outprice him and lowball him. Pavlik took it! He wants it!

    Believe it or not there a quite a few of us Pavlik fans that have saw much more than just his fight with Miranda. To me he had the same effect as Andy Lee has on a lot of people, when I first saw him a long time ago, it was just something you could see WAS there, you just knew this dude was going to be around. I think he can beat Taylor, but I do not underestimate Taylor.

    He is not overhyped by most fans, regardless if they pick him over Taylor. Those who say he knocks out Dawson, Calzaghe, Hopkins, and Kessler are overhyping him (for the moment).

    The more I think about it I dont get it "Kelly=overhyped". Is this because you see people simply picking him to win against Taylor? What if no one nowhere gave Kelly even a snowball's chance in hell, then would he be underhyped??
