Hes got a good right hand and a solid jab and a good beard, it stops there though... Nothing special enough to come even kind of close to being competitive with Andre Ward.
you're right but don't forget pavlik is just 30 yrs old, and it's not too late to tweak his fighting style and add some defense. he does have robert garcia in his corner who is firm trainer and might do wonders for pavlik. still won't change the outcome of the fight with ward but heck, this is boxing and anything can happen
