It was a disappointing Saturday night in Memphis for middleweight contender Edison ‘Pantera’ Miranda as he suffered his first real loss of his career to Kelly Pavlik. But Miranda vows to be back in the ring and better than ever in the future.
“I’m sorry to all my fans for my performance on Saturday night,” said the gracious Miranda. “I let you down, but know that I tried my best with what I had to win the fight. I thank you for all the support you have given me and I promise that I will return to the top and win a world championship for you.”

“I realized the importance of this fight for my career, my fans and most of all, I did not want to disappoint HBO who has been my supporter after the events in Germany. I was faced with adversities that I have never had to deal with in this fight, with my weight,” said Miranda. “All during training camp, no matter how hard I worked the weight did not come off like it had before. I did not eat or drink anything Thursday or Friday and still I had trouble making weight but I did not want to let the network down and my fans around the world. I went into the ring weak and ill, but I gave it my best effort!”

“To Kelly Pavlik, congratulations on your win; it was an honor to be in the ring with a warrior who thinks and fights like you do, and I hope we can fight again in the future. As for my immediate future, I’m going to take a little time off from the gym to relax, and after talking with my team, I’ll decide what the next step will be. Who knows, the next time you see me I may be chasing after a world super middleweight title.

“Know this though, I will be back and better than ever!”

i dont think he made one excuse except for that it was hard to make weight, which is a given for almost all fighters, he was just being honest tommy. You could easily tell he was out of breath in the 2nd roung. That was the miranda ive seen before, but on that night pavlik was the better guy.

I too thought he looked "off". With that aside, the Miranda that fought Allan Green would have received the same treatment. KO.

well as much as i respect your oppinion tommy and shane, the miranda that faught green looked and acted like a killer with unreal stamina. The miranda that fought pavlik was neither. He looked small and unhealthier was definently tired. He still lost though.

Yea I know but the point I was making was that the same Miranda that fought Allan Green would still get knocked out in the same fasion as the Miranda who fought Saturday. Pavlik would KO Allan Green too no matter how slick he may be at times.

its an excuse, allan green said the same thing after his loss to pantera and pantera just laughed and said it was an excuse.

well soemthing was terribly wrong with green that night, i think he was on drugs the way he was looking at his feet, about 2 weeks ago on fnf he said he has some personally medical problem still going on from even before the miranda fight and decided to fight miranda but he pulled out from his latest fight.

your right shane. I dunno, just defending green since he's from OK. I think he gets beat easy by all top middleweights.

agreed, i like allen green to be honest, i think he has good power and has a great snappy jab but just looks awquard in the ring.
