    I am not the only one picking Pavlik. Taylor has less than a 30% chance is more like it, but you wouldn't understand this, just like you do not understand how much better Kessler is than Taylor.

    Check the experienced and class poster Brooklyn1550's prediction, he has the styles, intangibles and little details that a pest like you misses down to the exact finer points in his analysis above.

    That's an A+ analysis, picked in unbiased fashion. You don't even have an analysis because you cannot analyse. You simply think because Taylor was competitive with set P4P fighters that it means that he will beat a lesser than P4P ranked hard hitting pressure fighter, this is common idiocy.

    You are a ****ing idiot Blockhead and you will be removed and most posters here will be glad that you were.

    I picked Pavlik and I have not said any of the things you said.

    I don't like how Taylor keeps his left hand so low. I don't like the way he doesn't seem to be improving defensively and doesn't seem tuned in sometimes to what's going on in the ring. And he and Steward don't seem to be on the same page and thus he hasn't shown the expected improvement in my eyes.

    Pavlik will be suceptible to jabs, but Taylor will be suceptible to counter rights and he has never been hard to hit. I think he gets drug into a fight and gets stopped.

    And I WANT Taylor to win.

    After he defeats Pavlik, his best option is to take a rematch with Winky and avenge the draw and leave no doubt who is the better fighter at this point. I feel Winky is ripe for the taking at this stage of his career . A mega fight with Calzaghe will most likely occur in the fall of 2008.

    All I see is you getting beligerent over a fight you have no stake in. Unless you are still talking to Amsterdam, you are also saying things I never said. I never said he looked bad, I said he hasn't shown the improvement I hoped for. I never said anything about intangibles either.

    Why would I be sad? I just stated I wanted Taylor to win, I just don't think he will.

    By the way, a counter puncher should never keep his hands that low. It leads to them getting countered, and Taylor hasn't shown the phenominal foot speed needed to get out of the way of counters ala Jones.

    Hummmmmmmmmm... If Taylor gets by Pavlik he should move up to 168 and end that slap happy Calfaggy and knock his ass out so Amsterdam can go commit ritual suicide along with other Calfagites of the same religion.

    Blocky, you are so ready to fight with anyone who disagrees.

    I never said Taylor hasn't been hit hard.

    I said "Taylor has never been hard to hit"

    And I don't think Hopkins hits as hard as Pavlik, and Taylor was wobbled noticably by Hopkins. His chin may or may not be solid.

    Everyone comments on how low he keeps his left hand. It is extremely low. Wright keeps his hand low sometimes, but he fires off a counter after rolling to the side...something I have not seen Taylor do, and I have seen Taylor 10 or so times, because I like him.

    Hopkins has above average power with great accuracy and timing. He isn't a puncher and never was. He used to wear people down, but he was certainly not a puncher.

    Since Kessler-Calzaghe hasn't happened yet, I am certainly not going to go into comparisons there.

    If Taylor wins....good for him, no problem for me. He will continue to be in my Top 5 P4P. If not, then I was right in picking Pavlik.

    Blockhead, you can't analyse your way out of a paper bag.

    I am not really sold with Taylor, He defeated Nard but I wasn't impressed, The young lion did not impressed me. I think this time he's going to lose.

    Just remember one thing, Calzaghe is virtually unbeatable.;)

    I will never turn to the darkside. I will never allow my mind to be warped with your wishful thinking. Please Kessler, for all that is holy. Knock Calzaghes head off.

    What if Calzaghe obliterates Kessler, Pavlik/Taylor and Dawson? I don't mean competitiveness, I mean annihilation or shutout.

    Will you convert?
