BREAKING NEWS: Bars banned from showing Pavlik fight



Published: Fri, December 18, 2009 @ 2:53 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Before a single punch could be thrown in Kelly Pavlik’s title fight, area bars have been dealt a blow.

Top Rank Boxing Chairman Bob Arum said since the event has not sold out, it will not be shown at any local bar.

“We cut it off,” Arum said. “You can’t sell it in the bar if it [the fight] is not sold out.”

Some reports pegged ticket sales at between 1,500-1,800 for the event at Youngstown State University’s Beeghly Center — with a capacity for 7,300 fans.

Arum dismissed those reports.

“It’s very inaccurate,” Arum said of the figure. “We’ve sold about 3,000 tickets ... We’ll have a nice crowd. It won’t be a sellout. But we’ll have a very, very nice crowd on Saturday.”

The fight will still be available via home pay-per-view. Or, remaining tickets, priced at $208, $158, $108 and $58, including $8 processing fee, can be purchased online at www.Tickets.com or at the Youngstown State University Athletic Ticket Office. For ticket information call (330) 941-1978.
