This fight is tentatively scheduled for 1-26-2013 in Los Angeles. It will be for Andre Ward’s WBC and WBA Super middleweight title.
I would have to favor Ward in this who is a top pound for pound fighter, who is at his best weight of 168 pounds, and who has just cleaned out the the 168 pound division, by beating Arthur Abraham, Mikkel Kessler, Bika, Carl Froch and a weight drained Chad Dawson.
Where as Pavlik’s best wins where about 4 years ago at middleweight 160 pounds, and Pavlik has fought a few club fighters and a fringe contender in his comeback from alcoholism and inactivity. That said I will be pulling for Pavlik in this fight , even if his chances of winning are remote.
