    Default If Lacy Fights Taylor, Froch Fights Pascal

    from fightnews.

    Pascal who is rated #2 WBO, #3 WBA, #3 IBF and #4 WBC has yet another purse-bid scheduled for August in Mexico to meet Denis Inkin for the number one spot in the WBC, but at this point even that is unsure. Right now everything is hinging on this Wednesday’s fight between Jeff Lacy and Epifanio Mendoza. With the WBC title vacant it is Jermain Taylor currently sitting at number three who is in the driver’s seat. The former undisputed middleweight champ has the option of fighting top-ranked Carl Froch for the vacant belt or fighting Lacy if left-hook looks up to the test based on Wednesday’s fight. Should the two former Olympic teammates collide, it would likely be Pascal fighting Froch for the title.

    I think the contract stipulates that neither fighter is allowed to hold more then one hand above the waist at a time.

    Well I must admit I would much rather see the Taylor-Froch fight whatever happens tomorrow. Lacy just hasn't looked upto it since Calzaghe and I have some questions on Froch that would be answered by a fight with Taylor.

    I think Taylor takes it Tko vs. Lacy right now,straight shots and shifts would take a toll.Taylor needed to go up and Lacy is somewhat worn.I think Lacy stamps out Mendoza coming up,good to see his condition.

    Lacy will win the odds are -1200/+600 . Those are crazy ass odds for Lacy, the other person must not have a pulse.

    Personally I don't think Lacy looked that good before Calzaghe.

    I too would rather see Taylor-Froch. Taylor is still new to the division and Froch would be able to finally have a good answer to the question "who have you fought?"

    I don't know who's putting those numbers out, but I have serious reservations that the fight will be a blow out by that much, unless Mendoza is gonna be drugged or something. Seriously there must be something in Lacy that I'm missing.

    Froch will need a zimmer frame for his ring entrance if he doesnt have a meaningful fight soon.

    I really want Froch - Taylor more than any fight thats been talked about lately, it would give Froch the chance to fight hsi first "big name" opponent and (hopefully) prove that he is world class. Unfortunetely I can't see it happening as Taylor Lacy would draw more (in the US where the money is) so they'll obviously go with fighting for the most money instead of trying to prove their the best (as happens too often), hey Taylor probably needs the money (hint of sarcasm there)

    Can't blame Froch if the other guy don't want to fight him.

    Maybe blame Mick Hennessy though. Not sure

    I think whatever combination of these fighters are made Taylor comes out the victor.

    Taylor is a guy who I've followed for a long time now, I'm just hoping he can finally step it up, I think the last Pavlik Fight would have been a good morlae booster.
