I think part of Pavlik's appeal (aside from being white) is that he is not a brash, arrogant, trash talker. He's a humble guy who never disrespects his opponents, he's not cocky or a thug. Unfortunately one of his more admirable qualities, loyalty, is hurting him. He's remained loyal to his trainer, who cannot seem to take him any further in regard to skill and ability. Pavlik is a very basic one-two combination fighter, and if he wants to remain at the top, he'll need more than that in his arsenal. He needs a more seasoned trainer like Manny Stewart or Freddie Roach to take him to the next level if he ever wants to compete against the likes of Jones, Kessler, Abraham, Hopkins, or any other top ranked Middle or Super Middle Weight.

True. Any of those fighters would destroy him. Hopkins made him look silly and amaturish in their fight. Kessler and Abraham would K.O. him.
