So I'm sure you guys all know this fight will be going down on Jan 26th. I'm also sure you guys know this has been in the works for some time now. I usually don't start threads but I was very curious and intrigue by this fight. Ward is a charismatic guy but he doesn't really promote himself or call people out much. It seemed however that he talked about tis fight more than most fights he's been in (maybe it's just me). I'm just curious to know what you guys think about Ward's motive behind seemingly promoting this fight. I also oviously would like to know if you guys think Pavlik has more than a puncher's chance at winning. Is he a threat or is this a classic case of adding a name to a boxer's resume' while his popularity is at a high? Personally, even if it is, I think Ward has earned that given his resume' the last 2 or so years. Just wanted to gauge where my fellow sweet science enthusiast were on this matter.

Definitely a stay-busy fight for Ward...and I just hope that he doesn't carry himself in that manner, for this fight. Surely he wont, but who knows. Pavlik is decent name on Ward's resume, besides, aint shit else poppin' in the SWM division anyway, thanks to Ward cleaning it out. Lol.

Pavlik's fought the best in the past, and has recently fought a string of about 10 no-hopers in the past 2 years...so I'll go out on a limb and say that he's worked hard for this. Alcohol has been the undisputed champ that Pavlik couldn't beat, so if he finally got the W against alcohol, then he has a chance against Ward.

A chance, how? Who knows. I don't see that same sting on punches, as he had at 160. He has moved up in weight, so that may be the case here. Me thinks that Ward is gonna take him to the cleaners in this one, but he needs to be careful....Kelly can still be dangerous after being hurt in fights.
