Yeah, this was what was in the contract, as far as the rematch clause goes. The rematch would be at something like 164 or 166 lbs. The same thing'll happen though, except I expect Pavlik will do much better in stopping Taylor. For all this talk about Taylor having to sweat and struggle to make 160, people don't realize that Pavlik is a bigger guy than Taylor and he too has to sweat and struggle to make 160. When all's said and done, Pavlik and Taylor will probably end up wrapping up their careers at 175 anyway, after a lengthy stopover at 168, where most of the big fights will be in the next several years (Kessler, Miranda, Lacy, Taylor, Bute, Froch, Inkin, Andrade, Mundine, and eventually Pavlik).
But at any weight, I think Pavlik stops Taylor, and it'll be even more impressive in the upcoming rematch.
