the problem is you cant just go from fighting D- level fighters to A+ level fighters. especially considering the problems ward present stylisticly.

pavlik hasnt fought a top fighter since 2010 when he lost bcuz he still couldnt handle the movement martinez was giving him. leading up to that fight he had been fighting C level fighters since losing to hopkins where he also couldnt handle the movement.

now hes fighting another top fighter who will be presenting him with lots of lateral movement and again hes been fighting nothing but weak opposition tailor made for him stylisticly.

if pavlik wanted to beat ward he would have fought better fighters not to mention fighters who could box, move and force him to solve their style. but doing that wouldnt earn him much more money than fighting bums and if he lost or looked bad the big paydays would go away.

thats all pavlik wants, a payday. hes been sitting on his ass waiting for one and now hes getting it. but he hasnt put himself in a position to win which is something i also want from a fighter.
