This is a guy from Detroit who has a bunch of wins against has beens and punch drunk fighters plus he's up in age with no real top notch fight expierence. Pavlik gets a KO with no effort.

[quote=myau1;10765627]Pavlik can fight 10 tuneup's before he fights Bute and he'd still lose. I'm surprised Pavlik and his team want the Bute fight though. He just came back and a lose to Bute is pretty much going to end his…

I was thinking Kelly's one tough SOB if this fight comes through; and then I realized it ain't the Cunningham I had in mind. :(
