Horrible fight to me, I hate Mora and he's a bum.

Worst possible fight of all the guys talked about for Pavlik.

Arum certainly being a lot more careful picking Kelly's opponents after the Hopkins debcale.

Pavlik will kill Mora.

Mora was actually a candidate as far back as the Lockett fight and certainly was in the discussion before the Hopkins fight. Why? I'm still trying to figure that one out...it almost seems that the Powers That Be in boxing are trying to make Mora out to be the next Oscar in order to appeal to the Latino population which is the lifeblood of the sport.

Three things I already do not like about this fight:

1) Mora as the opponent. No power and struggles against the ranks of the 154 pounders and will likely be a downgrade from Rubio.

2) It's going to be in Atlantic City and not Cleveland.

3) Arum is probably going to put Tony Margarito on the split venue undercard from Mexico.

Just fight Duddy already and get a fight that people will be talking about for years.

Duddy is not the fight that is going to have people talking afterwards. At best he's a lesser version of Edison Miranda at worst he's another Gary Lockett. Needs a lot of work on the technical aspects of his game before he takes it to this level.

However, the fight with Arthur Abraham that we may be talking about for a long time might just see the light of day afterall.

Right now I'd call that fight even money.
