With money left in the till, Showtime is planning a New Year's Eve bash that could include a host of titlists, former belt holders and rising prospects on a loaded card.
Instead of cashing in on his name and taking a money fight after a so-so ring return, Kelly Pavlik is staying busy and hoping for bigger things: Lucian Bute and a super middleweight title shot.
Maybe Carl Froch is a late starter. Or, he could have had a late flight back to England. Either way, the Brit waited until the last possible second to steal the fight from Jermain Taylor on Saturday.
