Hahahah well the fight’s not until Dec.
But either way, I’m looking forward to it. This is a hard, hard fight for Pavlik- he’s a very orthodox, jab-jab-cross kind of fighter who’s fighting a very unorthodox freak of nature in PW.
Both fighters like closing on the other guy, and both have very high workrates when they’re on their game. Kelly got embarrassed by BHop, but then that’s BHop- KP was tailor made for that guy. The only fight PW lost was to Quintana, who out countered him.
This fight could go either way. I could see the two of them getting into a brawl- and then it would look alot like KP-Taylor, what with Williams’ wider, looping punches being parried and KP’s straight down the pike shots landing first and hard.
I could also see Williams outworking KP over 12 rounds, just landing more and not letting KP hit him… but PW defense isn’t the best, so I think he WILL get hit.
Keep in mind also- the 2 fights with Quintana and 1 fight with Margo are PW only big names on his resume, and he dropped one to Quintana. He fought Winky, but Winky hadn’t fought in 21 years. PW has not been tested, and hasn’t been hit by a real good middleweight yet.
My prediction? KP by UD.
