    My favorite had to be the Cotto/Judah fight-
    Even though Kelly Pavlik had the performance of the year. He went down, only to get up and pummel Jermain "Who Have I Really Beaten" Taylor.

    I cant believe Pavlik agreed to fight that Bum again- i guess it was a clause in the proginal contract.
