Hopkins has always been one of my favourite fighters, but i don't know what his chances are here. He look tired in the later rounds against Calzaghe, Pavlik didn't seem to tire at all against Taylor. I see Hopkins wrapping him up alot, throwing lots of punches in clinches. If he drops his hands once on the outside Pavlik will land that right hand and it'll be all over.
I'm going to say Pavlik by decision. Hopkins' defence will get him through the fight, but he'll tire towards the end and won't be able to do enough for the win.
