No doubt he wins this fight. The bigger question is can he fight at 160-164 where he needs to be competitve.
His weight will determine whether he is "washed up".
I personally think he has last one run in him. But I don't have any boxing experience like all of these others posting that he is washed up. Looks like an easy sport watching it on tv.
Doyle2 have you ever been middle weight champ of the world? Mancini is a bum too right? You would have whooped both of them on playstation right?

Pavlik embraces Youngstown and Youngstown knocks him! To me the kid is great. He will find his way again. No one wants to fight him right now but yet he needs work. FInd an opponent knock him out and move on to bigger opponents. You hit the floor get back up and fight to the top.
These same people that knocked him are the same that cheered for him when he beat Taylor for the belt. Middleweight Champion of the world and people that knock him have not done anything with their lives. They think it does not take talent to get where Pavlik was - ridiculous. He loses to a hall of famer and a very good fighter in Martinez in a much closer fight than people give it credit.
Go Kelly- work smart and hard to stay at 160, and keep that same youngstown fight in you and you will get back to the top.
It will take time but all these people that knock you will act like they are in your corner when you are back on top.
True Youngstowners are rooting for you.
