    With all your talk of extremes, take a second to pay attention. I never said we only liked him because hes white.

    What i said, for the third or fourth time, is that once he loses badly, people aren't going to be talking about what a talent he is. People are going to question whether he was that good, or if we were excited because hes different.

    Everytime Pavlik fights the build up is all about where hes from.

    There have been people talking about Pavlik at my work as well. Im in Texas too.

    Lets just say positive or negative- people are actually talking about him.

    As of right now Pavlik looks fine. Fighters of his style dont have long careers, true. But to say he's going to be brutally knocked out any fight now is a shot you can throw at any fighter, no matter their style, right now. Because anyone can be knocked out in their next fight.

    So far Pavlik is fine and has years left in him.

    "PM me what you would have my sig be. I'm not agreeing to it, I just want to know."

    Thats what you said, I guess a sig bet with you was just too much work, lol. You cant pre-screen what is going to be said.

    You cant come on here saying Pavlik is only liked because he is white and that he is overrated and is going to get brutally KOd without people obviously disagreeing with you. Stop trying to act like you didnt come here just to piss people off. The reason this forum feels like the Heavyweights today is because of the bullshit you are spewing in this thread. Since nearly all of your posts are from the HWs anyway, why dont you just go back there?

    Well, I can't show what people would do under a hypothetical scenario, but anybody who isn't impressed with Kelly's accomplishments to date has unusually high standards. We're talking about a young kid who did what several of the best boxers couldn't do: beat Jermain Taylor decisively. How can that not be impressive?

    And unlike Arthur Abraham, he didn't need shady point deductions to beat Edison Miranda.

    And don't forget Hillary's endorsement. Of course, she's been riding those pasty blue collar types lately, not that it did her any good.

    Edit: Oh, the irony. Bluebelt. Thanks, Hil.

    Where are you guys getting this shit?

    Anyone who is saying that Pavliks race is not brought up everytime he fights are full of it. Jim Lampley harps on it over and over. I linked a story saying something similar.

    I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP. I DON"T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT PAVLIKS SKIN. I WAS MAKING THE POINT THAT EVERY POPULAR FIGHTER EVENTUALLY ENDS UP BEING EXPOSED. WHEN THAT HAPPENS, OFTEN IT IS IMPLIED THAT THEY WERE OVERRATED OR WE GOT EXCITED ABOUT THEM BECAUSE ___ .

    I never once said anything about him getting special treatment, I never even gave an opinion on the matter. It is a fact that hisrace is brought up by journalists, journalists who feed the public the information on these fighters.
