ESPN: Pavlik Vs. Hopkins

Bernard Hopkins and Kelly Pavlik face each other this coming Saturday, October 18, 2008 at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. They will be fighting at a catchall weight of 170.

I don't see Bernard Hopkins winning this one. Hopkin's is one hell of salesman but it's more than likely going to be a case of false advertisement when these two fight on the 18th. My gut instinct says Kelly Pavlik is going to give an Antonio Margarito like perfomance and impose his will on Hopkins. The fluctuations in weight can't be good for Hopkins at his age. I thought Hopkins was showing his age in the Calzaghe fight. Hopkins has had a great career but Pavlik wins this by UD, possibly a late round stoppage.
