Two best middles in the world. Long overdue. Would love to see it happen.

Monster fight and I hope Kelly has enough but I have concerns...
Playing here is the closest thing to heaven. Really, I mean it's amazing to be in a place where the fans truly cherish their football team and stick behind them win or lose. We players love them, too. I feel a sense of accomplishment playing here, we are a special breed of football players with a great opportunity." ~ tOSU LB Brian Rolle

I came across this on Ring Magazine's website. Team Pavlik has supposedly contacted Freddie Roach about possibly training with him.

KELLY PAVLIK (34-1, 30 KOs) vs. ARTHUR ABRAHAM (28-0, 23 KOs)

Why we’d like to see it: Pavlik’s foray into higher weight classes ended in disaster when he was embarrassed by 40-something Hopkins but he remains THE RING’s middleweight champion. And when he can land punches, as he couldn’t against Hopkins, he’s an exciting fighter. Meanwhile, No. 1-rated Abraham appears to be the complete package – skillful, powerful, fighting spirit. It would seem to be a can’t-miss, thrilling matchup of two young fighters in their primes.

Why it won’t happen: The Pavlik and Abraham camps reportedly have talked about a fight this summer. However, Pavlik isn’t ready for such a challenge and he appears to know it. He was exposed against Hopkins as a game, but limited boxer who needs more much polish. That’s why his people approached trainer Freddie Roach about working with him. If Pavlik fights Abraham in six or seven months, he’d get clobbered. If he takes a year to refine his skills, it might be a different story. Also, Abraham doesn’t have the name recognition to guarantee Pavlik a big payday. Why take the risk now?
