Smart Boxing Fans Pick Pavlik
Clearly, many of the people who voted on this blog regarding the outcome of the Pavlik-Taylor rematch are very smart. Most of my millions of readers picked Pavlik to win by decision or KO. I was leaning toward Pavlik, too, but I wish I had the same kind of certitude about it that some people did. Yo, it's boxing and Taylor didn't get to where he got by laying down and letting people run right over him. All props to Pavlik for getting it done for Youngstown, home of the great Boom-Boom Mancini. If anything, Taylor emerges even bigger after losing twice to Pavlik. Both these guys will be interesting to watch as they fight on into the future.
