I recommend watching there first fight over a few times. Pavlik went jab for jab with taylor the entire fight starting in the first round. many (myself included) thought pavlik won the first. I think what help persuaded the judges in giving some of the rounds to taylor was his punches seemed to have more snap to them and appeared in person to do more damage. at the fight I thought taylor was winning it aswell until I came home and watched it several times on tape and released pavlik was winning most of the rounds.Talk to me when he steps up to the likes of Kessler, Calzage, hell even Hopkins with his akwardness could give him a go. Yes he punches hard but he doesn't have the one-hitter quitter of a Hearns or even a young Roy Jones Jr who could do it with a single body shot. Personally, I don't think he would have beaten Jermain Taylor if Taylor didn't punch himself out and forget to use his footwork. Don't drink the kool-aid Taylor was ahead on points before he got put to sleep...but watch the rematch!!!
