Jeff Lacy is nothing more than an over-hyped bodybuilder/unskilled boxer.

Taylor vs Kessler is the fight that needs to be made.

Haye is too quick for all these other Heavyweights
he's ready to dominate another weight division

Calzaghe exposed Lacy and he needs to quit.
I would love to see Taylor vs Kessler.

Echo everyone elses thoughts. Lacy is a stiff. Taylor looked good. Think he can still do some great things in the sport. Kelly was a bad matchup for him, and throw out those two losses, and his resume is stellar. Think hes found his home at 168. I too would love to see the Kessler fight. A lot of other intriguing, not very nationally well known names at that weight. Should be a fun division to watch.

The problem with the current state of boxing is that Taylor vs Kessler will probably never happen while both fighters are in their primes.

Instead, we are more likely see both Kessler and Taylor fight over who gets to face the winner of Froch/Pascal, rather than just putting it all on the line at 168.

It's pathetic, really.

That's the biggest issue with boxing, always has been, always will be.
The big fights don't happen when they should 75% of the time.
It's a damn shame really.

It is a shame. Kessler looks like a really talented fighter, yet his team prefers to have him fight total bums in the prime of his career. They actually backed out of a high profile fight against Edison Miranda so that he could win and defend a paper title vs. Euro club fighters... what a total waste.

There are some big fights out there for him... Taylor, Dawson, Hopkins, and even Glenn Johnson immediately come to mind. It's time for him to step up and take on one of these guys.

Same goes for Arthur Abraham and Felix Sturm in the MW division. I watched the Abraham/Marquez fight and I still have no idea what purpose it served. Those two guys had no business stepping into the ring to fight each other... it was hard to watch such an obvious mismatch. I was glad to see Marquez bow out before he got seriously injured.

Speaking of Abraham, wasn't there some talk in the last year about he and Pavlik squaring off? That could be a knockdown, drag out kind of affair I'd like to see. I'm not sure about all of the "politics/mandatory challengers", but any thoughts on whether it may be a possibility after Kelly's next fight?

Abraham/Pavlik better go down soon if both guys win their next fights.
I was very impressed with Abraham the last few times I have seen him.
In a perfect world, both guys fight on the same card and then it would set up the showdown.
