Jermain Taylor vs. Kelly Pavlik
I know this will be moved shortly, but anyone with HBO needs to make sure and catch the replay of this sensational fight. It goes right up there with Hagler-Hearns in the all-time pantheon of middleweight championship fights.
Pavlik displayed unbelievable guts by coming back after a 2nd round knockdown in which his head was on a swivel, and when he got up there was still half a round to go. How he survived the round I haven't a clue. But he kept his composure and stopped Taylor in the 7th with a terrific barrage of power shots.
Even the opening bout between top prospect Andre Berto and David Estrada was a highly entertaining bout. Again, if you have HBO, make sure to watch the replay even if you are only a casual boxing spectator. You will not be sorry.
