oh obviously, and I have no complaints about it from the stance of a boxing fan.
Just as a fan of Pavlik, I don't know why he wouldn't take a guy like Rodriguez, who would make a winnable fight for him, and I think a great fight for the fans too. I'm glad he's going to make the fight against Ward too.
I wasn't saying there's anything wrong with it - it's definitely a great thing. I'd just think Pavlik, and his team would try to take on somebody at the top of the division before going after the second best pound for pound boxer in the world coming off wins of Rosinsky, and Jaco.
Rodriguez got a favorable decision against Roskinsky, though, and Pavlik beat Rosinsky pretty soundly.
