Kelly Pavlik is ready to make a return


Recommended Posts

After a series of injuries, fight postponments and a couple of losses, former middleweight champ Kelly Pavlik leaves rehab a new man and ready to resume his boxing career.




Vindy.com reporter Joe Scalzo writes how Pavlik, a Youngstown native, spent 60 days in the Ranch Recovery Center in Desert Hot Springs, Calif. Pavlik said his time in rehab gave him a chance to collect his thoughts and reorganize his life.


“I was having too much fun, put it that way,” he said of his drinking. “I’ve been pro for 10 years now and I have a lot of things going on in my life and boxing’s not going to be there for the rest of my life.


“It kind of got to the point where I said, ‘I’ve got to get organized now and start settling down and paying attention to what I have going on.’”


Pavlik hopes to fight at super middleweight on the undercard of the Manny Pacquaio-Shane Mosley fight on May 7 in Las Vegas.

I think Williams is going to stay well away from middleweight and above after what happened against Martinez.Probably a smart move after getting knockout like that.


I think it would be a shame on his part if he does. They both swung wildly and it was just a matter of who connected first. I don't think weight was a factor.
