But don't you guys think he could another fight on HBO/Showtime against a much better opponent (stylistically). . . Like Edwin Rodriguez?

Or even traveling to Europe to fight Kessler (should he beat Magee), or Abraham. . Or trying to lure Degale over to USA, or ****, going to England to fight him?

It'd be better to preserve his career by beating one of those guys (which I think he absolutely has a good chance of beating all those boxers I mentioned), getting paid not quite as much, but still good. . AND THEN (if he wins), go after Ward?
I like Pavlik and he's making a good decision. Win win situation for him. The question should be what is Ward thinking? Pavlik has power and so what if Ward wins? It's a lose lose situation for him. However I'm sure he's getting paid very well TOO.

I would MUCH rather see Pavlik vs Froch or Kessler. Great style match ups IMO. I would also rather see Ward just move up to LHW. Nobody beats him at SMW. Not even close.
