At least Calzaghe was comparable in age. Pavlik is much younger, is hard to permanently put down with a lucky flurry, and Hopkins is now even older than he was against Calzaghe. I don't see how he stands a chance.Golden Boy-Top Rank made matchup
10/18 at Atlantic City, NJ
Title at stake not yet announced if any.
What are your predictions?
Uhhhh, was this a promotional advertisement?IM LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS ONE, IT WILL BE MY FIRST FIGHT WHERE IM ACTUALLY RINGSIDE! I'LL BE WITH MY GIRLFRIEND. WE SAW PAVLIK DISMANTLE GARY LOCKETT, I MEAN GARY WHO?? LOL!! IM VERY EXCITED, AS ITS A COOL VENUE ALONG THE BEACH IN NEW JERSEY AT THE CASINO'S. PAVLIK'S MAKES THIS SPORT REPUTABLE, RESPECTABLE, INTRIGUING, AND FUN TO WATCH. THE TRINIDAD'S, DE LA HOYA'S, SHANE MOSLEY'S, ETC, OF THE SPORT ARE TOO FAR AND FEW THESE DAYS! WE NEED MORE TRUE BOXERS LIKE PAVLIK!!!
ON BEHALF OF THE ENTIRE SPORT OF BOXING--- SAT NIGHT IS GOING TO BE ONE FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY * AS LONG AS HOPKINS DOESNT HOLD THE WHOLE TIME!
HBO PPV, and I agree that this is going to be a good fightTHIS IS A TOUGH ONE TO CALL! IT COULD GO EITHER WAY, I WILL HAVE TO SAY HOPKINS BY MID ROUND KNOCKOUT OR PAVLIK MY SPLIT DECISION. I CAN'T SEE PAVLIK KNOCKING OUT KOPKINS HE HAS ONE OF THE BEST CHINS IN THE BUSINESS, FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN PAVLIK MIGHT HAVE A TESTY CHIN. SHOULD BE ALOT OF HOLDING BUT SOME GREAT ACTION.:thumbsup:
BY THE WAY IS IT ON PPV OR REGUALR HBO.
Welcome to the site dude. Pavlik and Hopkins will get into the ring at about 4am British time. Which will be 5am your time bud :thumbsup::thumbsup:.How many hours until the fight? (I mean CET) I'm finnish and I don't know too much about eastern standard times etc... It's going to be a great fight for sure! I would like B-Hop to win but I think Pavlik will be too strong for Hopkins. My first post by the way... Hi Everyone
