Miami Mike's for Pavlik vs Taylor II!
Tonight is another Miami Mike's night for yours truly. They're showing the rematch between Undefeated and Undisputed Middleweight Champion Kelly Pavlik and Former Undisputed Middleweight Champion Jermain Taylor. On September 29, 2007, these two fighters met for Middleweight Title at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ live on HBO. Pavlik survived a 2nd round knockdown and recovered from what was very close to being a knock out loss on his end, to come back and stop Taylor in seven grueling, hotly contested rounds to seize the middleweight championship. Yes, that fight was on free HBO - World Championship Boxing. Such a crowd pleaser the fight was, and so significant was the result, that the rematch is on HBO PPV tonight and this time around they're fighting at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. What does this mean? This means B-Money is heading over to what has become my favorite venue for PPV boxing. That happens to be none other than Miami Mike's in East Hanover, NJ. Let's do this!
