Pavlik to attend cancer benefit in Cleveland



Published: Sun, May 4, 2008 @ 12:00 a.m.

CLEVELAND — Middleweight boxing champion Kelly Pavlik plans to help the American Cancer Society fight back.

The Youngstown native will make an appearance today to help the “Fight Back Express” kick off a 48-state tour for the American Cancer Society Action Network at 10:30 a.m. at the Strawbridge Plaza (Mall C), 250 E. Lakeside Ave.

Pavlik’s mother, Debbie, is a cancer survivor.

The tour carries the message: “If one person can battle cancer, a nation can rise up and defeat it.” Its aim is to highlight the crucial role elected officials play in making cancer a national priority.

The organization believes changes in policies and programs at the federal, state and local levels have the potential to effectively help defeat a disease that will kill an estimated 565,650 people in America this year.

Pavlik (33-0, 29 KOs) will make his first middleweight title defense against No. 1 contender Gary Lockett (30-1, 21 KOs) at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on June 7. The fight will be broadcast on HBO.
