No audio for me (except spanish). But it looks like Rubio is just trying to survive.

And Rubio quits after 9

Pavlik looks like he could fight tomorrow.

Still, gotta wonder just how much he and the crowd were looking for a KO.

Pavlik looked good. Like he had a plan and an opponent he complied with it and he just wore his ass down to the bone.

Good rebound fight after a loss.

I don't follow boxing that in-depth but that sure as hell looked like a cupcake in his own backyard fight to boost his confidence.

If by "quit" you mean the fix came in, then sure. KP gave all he had, pounded Rubio like a cheap steak for about 5 / 6 rounds, couldn't KO him, and then he was spent and getting hit. That fight goes 12 and KP loses at home.

This sport makes NBA hoops look like a convent. No wonder I love the sport of boxing but think it is dirtier than a Thai hoe.

KP's power has left him. Taylor was a fluke.

Did you watch the fight in person or out and about?

After the 6th round I don't remember Rubio throwing a punch because he couldn't afford to take his gloves away from his face or ribs.

Pavlike didn't get touched in the 8th or 9th and like I said in one of those posts, he looked like he could fight today.

I'm not seeing the guy on the grassy knoll. Not in that fight. Now, overall you're righter than Limbaugh about boxing. But if you were gonna take your case about the sport to God, you wouldn't take tape of Pavlik/Rubio to support your position. Course, it's you and me and a difference of opinion ain't surprising at all. ;-) ;) :wink:

Yeah JB, not with ya on that take at all. Rubio, like a lot of Mexican fighters, has an iron chin. Been knocked out one time in 49 pro fights. And he gets hit A LOT.

And as far as a fix goes ... tough to fix a fight with a 8-1 favorite.

Kelly was not as as sharp as he was in the Miranda and Taylor wins last night. But he was a little amped fighting at home. Also (ane he hinted at this in the lead in interviews to the fight) ... he was MUCH more committed to working the body. He hit Rubio with some crushing body shots. The type a lot of boxing fans wont notice. Punches that do nothing to the opponents face. But punches that systematically suck the life and will out of the opponent, which we saw happen last night.

That was pretty much the old Kelly though. Absolutely dominated a guy that was pretty well respected before last night. I was very pleased with the performance.

We'll talk more about it over beers before we head into his next fight at The Q in May.

If you would have seen both guys at the press conference last night you would have thought Rubio won.
Pavlik's eyes were beat up and red. Rubio looked like he didn't even fight.

I'd like to see his rib cage today.

Quite frankly, I wasn't very impressed with Pavlik last night. He dictated the fight, sure, but it was pretty clear that Rubio wasn't in his league. Pavlik's punches, which didn't seem to be as powerful to me as they did in previous fights, were so much stronger than Rubio's. He had a definite reach advantage.

I didn't see much quickness from Kelly. I thought he fought a technical fight, but he could have gone for the kill in the 6th and 7th. Rubio wasn't holding on and boxing the way Hopkins was. There was no killer instinct in the middle rounds for Kelly.

If Pavlik gets Duddy next, who I was very impressed with in the Vanda fight, Pavlik has to fight a hell of a lot better than he did last night. If he's that complacent, he won't dictate the fight against a guy who eagerly wants to trade punches. I realize I'm comparing two different fighters and Pavlik's game plan will be a lot different, but I was disappointed with Pavlik's energy last night and would be fearful if he fought Duddy.

I'll never claim to be a boxing expert but I must have watched a different fight in person than some others saw. Few thoughts come to mind:

-Possible that Pavlik knew Rubio couldn't hurt him? Looked in person like Pavlik effed up in the 6th (I think) and gave Rubio a clean shot at his head, which Rubio took, but Kelly looked more dumbfounded than anything after the punch.

-Rubio took a pounding and damn near wore Pavlik out. Credit Rubio for eating all those punches and not falling to the canvas, but that can't be good for his long-term life outlook.

-Even though it wasn't ever in doubt, much rather see Rubio be a punching bag than the display Gary Lockett put on in that fight...
