We're not big fight fans these days, but one guy we can get behind is Kelly Pavlik. The reigning middleweight champion and Boxing Times Fighter of the Year will be squaring off with Jermain Taylor again tomorrow night on HBO PPV.

Pavlik, a Youngstown native, served up a mild shock to the boxing world when he knocked out previously unbeaten Taylor in September of last year.

No word yet on whether both fighters will don trunks representing their favorite schools again, but Pavlik appears to be one of the few guys in Ohio that have a handle on the SEC.
