Pavlik Knocksout Miranda, Taylor decisions Spinks in Snoozefest

“What a fight. What a fight.” Those words will be heard all around the country. Kelly “The Ghost Pavlik (31-0, 28KO) scored a 7th round stoppage against Edison Miranda (28-2, 24KO) in a electric bout which featured both fighters going toe to toe from the opening bell. With the amazing performance, Pavlik has sent a message to the middleweight division that he is a force to be reckoned with.
– In a boring, slow, unexciting snoozer, Jermain Taylor (27-0-1, 17KO’s) and Cory Spinks danced around the ring for 12 rounds. Spinks (36-4, 11KO’s), methodically walked circles around Taylor from the opening bell, but threw double and triple the amount of punches as Taylor. Jermain looked out of the fight from the onset. His mind may have been on Kelly Pavlik and his massacre of Edison Miranda.

Not much happened in the fight, so there is no much to report. Spinks threw his jab, Taylor threw an occasional punch. And that happened for twelve rounds. A usually calm Emmanul Steward lost his cool towards the end of the fight, pleading with Taylor, “You have to fight. You have to fight.”
The lackluster performance by Taylor leaves even more question marks regarding his career. touchgloves.com had the fight 115-113 for Spinks.

    I think the HBO commentators are totally biased because of their investment in Taylor. I dont know how the judges gave the fight to him. I think Spinks was pressing the fight, sticking and moving. You can’t win a fight if you dont throw punches. And Taylor wasn’t trying to fight, contrary to what HBO commentators were saying.
