Pavlik is going nowhere he might get a paper belt but he won't be a legit world champ again on top of getting exposed twice, he fell off hard out of the ring too when he fights another good fighter…

How ironic that the venue is called Illusions Theater and Top Rank is always trying to give the illusion that a fighter is back on top or is world class.
