He might at 168. Roy would have lots of success with his usual lead right hands and lead left hooks against Pavlik. I think Pavlik's jab would bother Roy some though, and without a doubt there would be those times where Roy would back himself into the ropes and Pavlik would unload on him. Whether or not a few clean Pavlik right hands get through is the question. Pavlik is a perfect opponent style wise for Roy in that he isn't very fast and loves to come forward. However the same can be said of Johnson, and we saw how that turned out.
Regardless, Pavlik will be heading back to 160 to defend, so I don't see this fight as a possibility any time soon. Jones would have a better chance of facing Taylor at 168 but being that Taylor just lost I don't think there would be much of a demand for that.
Agreed,....It would be a match worth watching because of those factors, Roys right hand,... and Pavlik pounding on him on the ropes,...

I dont see Jones Jr. getting involved in fights with any of these guys. Pavlik is going to be in discussions with Trinidad, and I dont think Taylor is going to want to fight Jones at this point in time. I think Jones is looking more at the Calzaghe-Hopkins winner than this fight.
As he should. The ring magazine has him #7 PFP! (In the light heavywieght division). He should stick to his plan...He could fight a Danny Green (#6),... or even more interesting a Chad Dawson(#5)..........
