That was a great article Henry. Pavlik will put Duddy down mid-fight in my opinion. The guy is just so relentless and has power for days. I wish it was someone other than Duddy though. Duddy bores me.

I think that is going to be a great fight actually as someone is pretty sure to get knocked out. I am suprised the rematch with Taylor isnt taking place right away though. I think Taylor would win a rematch, but hey, I am all for letting Pavlik get a defense under his belt, then maybe having a shot to unify the belt before Taylor comes right back after him.

the fight will sell big numbers because duddys very popular and is very exciting and pavlik is also great to watch, it'll make big PPV numbers so i guess the money the fight will make makes it meaningfull.

I dont think it'll be on PPV and its a week after RJJ and Tito in the same area. Atlantic city and MSG are too close to try and have 2 major fights in back to back weeks.

it doesn't! there's only one fight that should be made and that's taylor/pavlik. i haven't heard jt say he didn't want the fight, so i'm wondering what's going on? i think arum's doing everything in his power to not make taylor/pavlik 2. you'd think he'd be pressuring taylor to negotiate the rematch.

any fight involving pavlik is guarenteed to be PPV, he's undisputed middleweight champion.

i don't think pavlik/duddy would warrant a ppv, but taylor/pavlik would be a lock. there's more money for pavlik to fight taylor. maybe taylor's making changes in his camp or something. who knows, maybe he's actually scared? i'd doubt that, but that could be the case.

he'll fight taylor, but why not make a million or 2 before it?

true. but, i'm beginning to think that taylor may need to boost his confidence. I mean, he had an immedaite rematch put into the contract. why put the clause in if your not going to enforce it?

Ok he could make 6 or 7 mill to fight Taylor now.
1 or 2 to fight Duddy now
If he loses to Duddy or Taylor loses again. Kelly wont get no where near 6 or 7 mill.

Yikes Atlantic City in January, no trip to the boardwalk for that. Hey, he'll be just like all the rest, take the easiest fight for the most money, can't say I blame him.

Maybe he's having second thoughts. Rematch is risky for the furtherance of his career.
