He really hung in there despite a lot of ****e to deal with, my heart goes out to him.
I have to say something stupid here so here it goes: I actually feel that as great as Ward is, Pavlik has a strong style that is a great match against Ward...Kelly is scrappy enough to hang inside (though like most modern boxers & unlike Ward kelly does not fight inside). Kelly also has decent enough pace and jab.....strong enough, it might have been a great scrap! But alas, an unmotivated "Ghost" against Ward? a virtual death sentence!
So basically what you are saying is that because he faired so poorly againt Bernard Hopkins, he would do better against a fighter who is for all intents an purposes, a younger fresher stronger Bernard Hopkins?
