I was holding a glass of cold ice tea while munching my favorite chips when Jermaine Taylor decked Kelly Pavlik in the second round. His legs were wobbly and from the looks of it he will be so damn lucky to survive that round as I sip my ice tea mercilessly.
But Kelly survive that round while my munchers and ice tea weren’t so lucky…hehe
And as I turned my focus on the match Kelly though down in the second round continued to prey and stalked Taylor with a sense of urgency.
Kelly Pavlik was born in April 4, 1982 at a small town in Ohio called Youngstown. Nicknamed “The Ghost” he had a long amateur career before signing up with Bob Arum’s Top rank promotions. He made a name when he defeated former light middle weight title holder Bronco Mckart and won a WBC eliminator bout against Colombian Edison Miranda. An unblemished record of 32 wins 29 coming by way of Knockout Kelly was an underrated boxer. So in order to be the best he had to fight the best and a household name in the middle weight category.
After the second round Knockout Pavlik went back to his orthodox style of boxing nudging Taylor’s head at some time and in the seventh round after trailing in points “The Ghost” knock Taylor out with a right cross and the former champion never recovered.
The new WBC and WBO Middleweight champion of the world has arrive, I’d love to see him fight the ageless legend Bernard Hopkins or the flamboyant Floyd Mayweather. But for now they should be aware because the Ghost is coming.
