he was behind on the cards before the stoppage? I find that kinda surprising. I see late stoppage for Kelly but agree this will be a competive fight. I hope it's in AC.I think Abraham is getting a little more credit than he deserves. He was behind to Miranda when he knocked him out. He has great power but I see no way he could win a decision over Pavlik. It will be a good fight but I think Kelly will win by clear decision or late KO.
tbh sometimes the first few rounds go either way. abraham looked like he was measuring miranda and being very defensive because he was scared of miranda's power. then he began to fight more. the fight was 4 rounds anyway i think.
Yeah, Miranda was at least 2-1 ahead going into the 4th, maybe 3-0, I can't remember exactly. It will be competitive but if Kelly loses I'll be really surprised.
I agree. Pavlik UD.Pavlik by UD. Abraham will give him some problems though.
Yeah Miranda was up 3-0, which was what made it so cool. Abraham was just chillin, measuring Miranda's mistakes. Then in the 4th he let his first big punch go, and he caught Miranda. It was awesome.
I think Pavlik would win however AA did impress me in his last fight , Abraham's patience , very intelligent fighter . with Abraham you have to knock on the door and see if anyone is home, not blowing your big shots and wasting energy like Miranda did... just tap his gloves and get ready to counter the counter puncher. I think Kelly can do that ( touch) is very important vs a cagey counter puncherIm curious to know if there is anyone who would take Abraham in this fight?
I would take Pavlik to stop Abraham late. AA has a good defense but eventually i see Pavlik blasting through that guard and landing with hard shots.
Yeah the problem is Abraham can get outworked, he defends himself and looks for oppenings, sometimes its not enough to win the rounds.Yeah, Miranda was at least 2-1 ahead going into the 4th, maybe 3-0, I can't remember exactly. It will be competitive but if Kelly loses I'll be really surprised.
You're right, Abraham is easy to outwork and Kelly doesn't need an invitation anyway. My initial thought was a Pavlik UD but now I'm thinking a late stoppage. Abraham has great power but Pavliks chin is solid (despite being knocked down by Taylor) and I expect him to take Abraham's shots well. If Abraham really wants to win this fight he's going to have to take risks and I see kelly taking advatage of this.Yeah the problem is Abraham can get outworked, he defends himself and looks for oppenings, sometimes its not enough to win the rounds.
I think Kelly outworks him, UD or late stoppage if kelly works the body properly.
