Pavlik beats Taylor. Again.: Kelly Pavlik won a unanimous decision over Jermain Taylor. This was the second time they fought.

How Taylor can go from hanging with Wright and Hopkins to losing twice to Kelly Pavlik, is beyond me. It must be a mental thing for Taylor at this point because Pavlik is a joke. At this point they're both jokes, they look like amateurs in the ring together. I hate to say it, but boxings future is looking bleaker and bleaker. All of the big name characters in every class are getting old and soon all we'll be left with is Cotto and Mayweather. After them who cares.

And what's even more ridiculous is Pavlik is set to fight Trinidad. I just don't get it. I think Joe Calzaghe is right there with Cotto etc as far as current decent fighters. How about Pavlik vs. Calzaghe. (at a catch weight), or I think Mayweather should pull a Roy Jones and move up and take Pavliks belt.

Calzaghe is one of those old guys I was referring too. He'll probably retire after Hopkins decisions him. Pavlik vs Trinidad is not a set fight. Pavlik will probably lose to Arthur Abraham before that ever happens. Mayweather vs Cotto is the only fight I wanna see after Calzaghe vs Hopkins is over.

I would love to see what Marvin Hagler would do to Pavlik and Taylor if they were around when The Marvelous One was the Undespituted Middleweight Champ back in the eightys.Neither one would stand a chance against him.I think by far he was the best middleweight in his day,if not the best ever!!

I admire Marvin Hagler so much that I named my dog Hagler. Seriously. What a great champion.

Ray knows the Marvelous One won the fight. He may never admit it publicy but he knows. The Hagler v. Hearns remains the most exciting three rounds I have ever seen...what a fight.
