Pavlik v. Taylor II

This Saturday night a great rematch will be on pay-per-view. Youngstown's finest, Kelly Pavlik, the undisputed middleweight champ, faces Jermaine Taylor, who he knocked out a few months ago. The same city that produced Maurice Clarett and Amarosa, the city that the modern economy left behind has produced an old-fashioned bad-ass. Pavlik is 31-0 with 28 knockouts. He has knocked out his last three opponents, none of which had ever been knocked out in their pro careers prior to facing Kelly. Here is a good article on the punishing Irishman with an Eastern European handle.

    Watch the highlight of Taylor getting knocked the f out in Atlantic CIty. My Winery clients were there, as was about half of Mahoning County.... The crowd goes APE when he floors him... As Joe (my winery client put it)... It was like the CIty of Lowellville (location of winery and where Pavlik went to high school) won the superbowl.

    I want him to win this sooooo bad... After this beating an open air fight in Browns stadium is a distict possibility.... Oh yeah, I back into boxing again.
