Fresh off his decision victory over Jermain Taylor, middleweight champ Kelly Pavlik has a new signature custom t-shirt to go with his title. The design is influenced by Kelly’s nickname ‘The Ghost’ and comes in either white or black for $48.00. Click the image for a direct link to the order page.

Jermain Taylor exercised his option for an immediate rematch with Kelly Pavlik. Unfortunately for Taylor, no title is at stake meaning a win will not regain him the middleweight belt from Pavlik. Also since his loss to Pavlik in September, Taylor and Manny Steward have parted ways. It’s safe to say we’ll see a different Jermain Taylor come the rematch. Early negotiations have pointed to February 2008 as a tentative date. I’m taking Pavlik via mid rounds KO. His defense will be polished quite a bit and I simply can’t go against his crazy ability to finish with vicious flurries. Watch the video to see what I’m talking about.
Update: Rumors in the boxing community are circulating that a possible matchup between Zab Judah and Carlos Quintana could be the undercard to the Pavlik/Taylor main event.
Kelly “The Ghost” Pavlik could quite possibly become the new middleweight champ on September 29th when he faces off against current WBO/WBC champ Jermain Taylor on HBO. Taylor has caught tons of bad criticism for his painfully hard to watch bouts against Cory Spinks and Kassim Ouma. He has no choice two weeks from today as Pavlik is the epitome of a slugger who presses the action. He’s coming off his biggest career win against Edison Miranda and in my opinion would make a better overall people’s champ then Jermain Taylor with his fan appeal.
