The new boxing superstar

Just when you thought I had gone all political… Kelly Pavlik beats Jermain Taylor, as I predicted.

Pavlik is just what boxing needs. Along with the Aussie Michael Katsidis (watch his fight with Briton Graham Earl for proof) and, possibly, knock-out sensation Edwin Valero (we don’t know yet if his 100% KO record is a result of poor opposition yet), there are a new set of exciting, risk-taking fighters ready to make boxing exciting again. The sport has been in a lull recently and at risk from the new popularity of mixed martial arts (fighting in pajamas, I say) and the ridiculous UFC but these guys, along with the likes of the established Hatton and Calzaghe, make it possibly a good time to have a Setanta subscription.

On a related note, Mike Tyson is fucked. They should take him off his medication and do a reality TV show about him.
