The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

Williams/Pavlik Official

So says “Love Father” Dan Julio

Good for HBO for forcing this (feeling the bite of MMA, I honestly think), but man… Pavlik is in trouble here. He may blitz Williams and make me look stupid, but I just don’t give him much chance at all (20%?) and if he loses then there’s no next logical fight for him past the rematch. Hopefully the money he makes for those two will be wisely invested, because the fight after that is going to be the short-money end of a 168 pound contender’s fight. Williams himself may be grasping a poisoned chalice; the reason HBO is forcing this is because there’s just not many money fights at 160.

  1. I can’t wait for Pavlik to get beat in this fight. He has been such a disappointment as middleweight champ. I was such a big fan of his, but jeez, what a letdown. And he was clearly the one who ducked a superfight with Abraham, as evidence by Abraham entering the 168 tournament. Fuck Pavlik.
