I do not like Kelly Pavlik at all, but can some one mention what fighters has he been a gatekeeper for?
The Hopkins fight was a big PPV fight where he was favored in. The Martinez fight was a big main event and the fight had a lot of hype behind it. Those are his only two losses and those were big fights. If decent fighters like Will Rosinsky can not beat you, then you are not a gatekeeper, you're a lower tier top 10 fighter.
