Man: Pavlik hit me at bar

Kelly Pavlik

The champion’s trainer denies the allegations.

staff report

YOUNGSTOWN — A 45-year-old Boardman man says boxing champion Kelly Pavlik and Pavlik’s trainer assaulted him at a South Avenue bar.

Ronald Cappitte told police that he went into East Side Civics about 11 p.m. Saturday, walked up to Pavlik, 28, to say, “Hi,” and Pavlik punched him in the groin.

Cappitte reported the allegation to police Monday morning.

“It’s a flat-out lie,” said Jack Loew, Pavlik’s trainer. “I was there with my wife, my son, my future daughter-in-law. We were standing there talking.”

No charges have been filed.

Pavlik couldn’t be reached Monday.

Police noted a scratch on Cappitte’s forehead and bruises on his ribs and chest, the report said.

According to what Cappitte told police, he fell to the floor after being struck. He then got up and told Pavlik that if he hit him again, they would be fighting outside.

Cappitte told police that Pavlik then struck him in the forehead and he fell again. Pavlik and Loew, 50, then both jumped on Cappitte, punching him repeatedly in the body, the report said.

Loew said that Cappitte and Pavlik were talking and everything was fine, then Cappitte grabbed Pavlik around the neck like he was trying to put him in a headlock. At first, Loew thought the two were goofing off, he said.

When he realized they weren’t, he separated the two and walked with Pavlik away from Cappitte. Cappitte then got into a fight with two more groups of people, and Loew broke up the second fracas.

“Kelly didn’t hit anyone and neither did Jack Loew,” Loew said, adding that he has witnesses who will corroborate that.

Editor's note: This story was corrected on July 28, 2009 with the correct name of the Boardman man who reported the allegation to police.

IDIOT

He deserves to be beat up. Just not by Pavlik, we don't want him to hurt his hands on this guys face.

It's people like Mr. Cappitte that just don't deserve to be out in public. You know the law suit is coming and who ever represents Mr. Cappitte is a scum bag also.

taking one look at the "picture" mr cappitte posted is enough to tell u what an idiot he is. first of all if u know that kelly pavlik is in training, WHY would u grab him around the neck and risk injury to him ??? even if it started out as a joke or goofing off. i think mr cappitte got too aggressive and wanted to show that he has "muscles" . well if he got his ass kicked then he deserved it. now quit your crying and take it as "i got to fight kelly pavlik" . your 15 minutes of fame are over !

training , since when do you train at a bar, from what i here around youngstown , he does a lot of bar hopping, pavlick that is, was a big fan of the youngstown champ because i am from there , but i guess we are from different parts , because the champs from youngstown dont let money ruin there career and their life.

Hey big luke ! Bars sell food also! DUH !!!

oh wait with your mentality all you do is drink ans probably pick fights!

Kelly and friends were most likely there to have a nice quiet dinner and thid BOZO waltzes in and looks to make himseslf look like a tough guy...too bad he got his arse kicked by someone else.
cappitte seems like he just wants to cash in...what a loser!

Kelly is the best thing to hit this valley in a long time,just too bad some a hole eejit is trying to ruin it for him!
A bit of jealousy

Typical Youngstown. This story sums up the whole area. The guy is the face of Youngstown to the world right now, and doing very well (which is in stark contradiction to other famous Youngstowners i.e. Monus, Trafficant, Dann, etc.) and he has to worry about physical altercations on the south side.

Kelly, take this as a sign. Move to the country, buy a big house and only associate with your true friends. You can entertain people at your place. You need to wipe the Youngstown off you, I hate to say it, but it's true.

This is hilarious! First off, if anyone was there, which I was...this is NOT what happened. What a silly man thinking ANYONE would believe this. Second off, oh my---kelly was at a bar! get over it! instead of spreading rumors or badmouthing him, learn WHY he was there. Trainer, Loew along with Family and Friends were celebrating the terrific turnout of his fights that night at the Saxon club. once again, something amazing in Youngstown and these idiots have to make a story. Ive met Mr cappitte...now lets talk about a drunk.
and again, Big Luke?!....youre as ridiculous as the rest---you people act like you know everything. lets grow up and leave it as he IS the CHAMP...and he has earned it. What have YOU or anyone else done in this town thats worth talking about?? NOTHING

Give me a break people... how can you stick up and back a person who has constantly proved time and time again that these accusations are accurate...! I too have see Mr. Pavlik at the bars, and he does a little more then celebrate. What will it take for you all to see the truth? - someone to be hospitalized - oh wait that has already happened...and you still think he is a "champ" - shame on you all.

Why are people in the YO so quick to slam the ones who have successes? Kelly Pavlik could bring peace in the Middle East and you self-righteous a-holes would still slam him. He went to a bar, OMG he drinks, OMG he was drunk...SO WHAT! He's not your moral compass. And if he is, then you definitely have bigger issues then what Kelly Pavlik is doing around town.

I host the Talkin Boxing With Billy C radio program, which airs on WANR AM 1570 in Youngstown EVERY day from 9:00 to 10:30 AM. To think that a guy would walk up to Kelly Pavlik and say "hi" and get beat up by the Middleweight Champion of the World AND his trainer is CRAZY. Why do people do this type of thing? America is the land of opportunity, but have we gone so bad as a country that the motto here is "Sue your way to the top"? Being in the boxing business for over 25 years, hearing this stuff does not shock me, but the grief that Kelly has rec'd from his "home town" of late is terrible. Don't be shocked if he packs his bags and moves away! Tune into the Talkin Boxing With Billy C Radio program on AM 1570 in Youngstown to hear my thoughts on this! Billy@TalkinBoxing.com

To Mr Foxtrot..As far as your remark about the high end bars in Downtown... Pleeease!..... There have been many fights, robberies etc in the downtown district. (as anywhere in Youngstown)But it was not made public... It was not printed in the paper or even on the news. That does not make it BETTER down there..If you like down town bars (or for that matter, you may even own one ,,,,) thats great..... don't degrade the other bars, who are struggling to make a living (many are a mile or less from downtown) just so you can look at your downtown bars through rose colored glasses...A group of the South Ave bars have been close knit for over 8 years, to raise money for local charities.. Every year they donate a large sum of money to a chosen charity . Toys for Tots and Second Harvest Bank.......Can you believe such low end dives could care enough to try and help other people in the community.. Can you also believe at the last one we were very close to 500 people (from everywhere, suburbs too) Next time you sling trash at people, maybe you should think about what you're saying FIRST. . There are alot of GOOD people who frequent South Ave Bars we are not all bad... There is alot of good in some of us.. Alot of good people come from the South Side and do still support it!!!

ONCE again...HE injured 2 people off-roading? im sorry, but were you there? NO YOU WERE NOT!. again, what happened in that incident was not pavlik doing anything that anyone else was doing....having fun. people have minds of their own....but yes your right---kelly tied them down and made them ride. then he decided to injure them ON PURPOSE!...are you kidding me? grow up youngstown. this town is the first place to sit there and do nothing but complain that we have nothing good and no money---ONE person, or a few "southside" bars do good and people....narrow minded, stuck up people, HAVE to put them down. And as far as only "drunks" or bad people go to the south side bars..not true. maybe those guys would rather hang around true, down to earth people at those "dive bars" then sit with a bunch of prissy people.
oh ya...hahaha to your comment about jack loew and kelly thinking they can do no wrong. Do YOU have boxing shows to support all of the kids that want to go to the gym?? do YOU help out those kids and give them something to do other than being on the streets? Do YOU volunteer alot of your time for ANY charity or cause that asks? I DIDNT THINK SO! when you can remotely accomplish the things those two have done for youngstown, then talk.

One thing is for sure, the more Kelly fights, the less crap we read about him. True or not, the last several news articles have not been a publicists dream. The broken window, Rehab, someone injured on a 4 wheeler at his property, a fight in his place to get a way.....in his case any press is not good press!
It's time to get back to the gym and start cleaning out the middleweights like he said he was going to do. Unfortunately, he is going to need to limit his socializing because there are a lot of jealous people out there and there are some that will find him doing wrong any where he stands. Perception can be a fickel (sp?) friend!
I don't know him and have met him once-I thought he was very nice and I was impressed with the way he treated others around us-especially the kids. I know that anyone who can dish out a beating and take a beating like he did against Miranda and Taylor can have a beer or 10 whenever the heck he wants! I'd like to buy him one-when he retires 51-1!!!

Mr Foxtrot , I for one did use my real name because I am not afraid to use it nor am I ashamed of it. You may think Downtown is the safest area, but unfortunately, I hope you carry a credit card and not so much cash, as you have stated you carry large amounts of cash on you.There is no safe area. at least when you are on the South Side you are aware of your surroundings and you watch out for your surroundings, since not much goes unreported in this area. Which is good. You need to know whats going on and not be oblivious to reality. In areas where they hush everything, everyone thinks its safe, is it not.. No where is safe from crime..Some people of the "lower class" can't afford a night out in the Downtown Clubs, unlike yourself. So because they don't have as much cash as yourself, they should not be denied a night out... I am not denying there is not any crime on the South Side, but I do think you should not judge people who are not as fortunate as yourself. The last time I was downtown I was bugged by a downtown homeless person for change.. Who are you to Judge people who frequent our bars. I have had Congressmen, Attorneys, Senators ,Judges, ESPN, HBO, Sports Illustrated and I have a member from England who is a member of our Club and visits 2-3 times per year. You can't judge a book by its cover...But clearly you do.. Nice talking to you ..

Seems like the East Side Civics is a troublesome joint. Eastside you spoke about the last charity event that you had nearly 500 people at but I was with a group that had a guy get hit in the face with a beer bottle at your bar by some moron twice his size. So much for a safe charity event. If you want trouble, you hang on the south side, thats all there is to it.

OK, this is like Deja Vu. I saw this guy and his brother pick a fight with Roland Cummings at Alfe's on the west side about 22 yrs ago. They got their a** kicked then, and it appears like age and history did not change a thing. They were not allowed in any bar on Mahoning Ave. It looks like they've migrated to the south side and are still getting whooped. Let it go champ, it's still Y-Town, it's OK, It will happen. Hopefully the brother has stopped eating bar glasses when he gets loaded.

First off who cares if Kelly goes to bars and drinks. What because he is a professional boxer he can't be human too? And for the 2 bar owners going back and forth, crime is every where. but I have to say, I feel safer downtown than on South Ave. Nothing but drug addicts and scum looking for a free ride. I was held up by 12 year olds 15yrs ago right across the street from the Civics, another bar at that time but that area has just gotten worse. We can thank those who feel work is only for the weathly!

No one is perfect. Yes, he is in the public spotlight, and along with that comes a certain way to conduct oneself. However, If you ask me this man is a class act. When he is done spending time at golf outings, and doing charity appearances, and spending time with kids, and signing autographs, if he wants to go to a bar, drink a beer, and take a dip of copenhagen, he should be allowed to do that without anyone criticizing him. He is one of the most down to earth "celebrities" I have ever known and should be admired for that, not scrutinized. This is a kid who truly has not forgotten where he came from and has gotten Youngstown back on the map in a positive way since Maurice Clarett tarnished it a few years ago.

If this Cappitte guy is the same man(almost definitely is, Ron Cappitte is not the most common name) that used to coach my little league baseball team at Uptown, then yes, he was most likely drunk. He always smelled like alcohol even when he coached a team of kids(9-14). I'm not saying Kelley is innocent either, just that Mr. Cappitte does like to down a few from hour to hour.

Ironically, NOTHING ever turns up, imagine that. This loser os looking simply for a pay day, and when you think about it, Pavlik could truly hurt an average "Joe" spiked with beer muscles and reeking of Budweiser fumes.

I can't believe the comments here. While I was not there (haven't been in the civics for years), if Ronnie was drunk his perception of what happened is probably way off. I really don't know kelly other than to say hi, but he seems like a very sweet natured young man. From what I've read, it doesn't sound like Kelly was drunk (although he's over 21 so he's free to drink, get real people) and it sounds like Ronnie was definitely drunk. Having said that, he is not someone who would do something to be "sue happy". He may believe Kelly hit him. The point is, he has obviously dropped the charges, so perhaps he had some sober time to think it over. As for the East Side Civics being a dive bar full of losers, that is simply not true. Lori runs a nice club and they have a lot of good people as members, so you can take your snooty attitude and shove it. BTW, the only reason I don't go there, is because I don't drink. If I did, I would be there, rather than downtown pretending I have more money that I really do. See, the people there are working class men & women and if your car get's a flat in the parking lot, someone will help you and/or give you a ride home. How do you think that would play in a downtown bar?... TRIPLE AAA

BTW, when did Kelly Pavik become responsible for Youngstown's image. He's a boxer, a good boxer, nothing more, nothing less. Leave the kid alone and let him box. If you believe Youngstown sucks, perhaps YOU should do something to change that, instead of slamming a young man who is doing something positive for himself.

This is a case of stupidity. This guy is a fool for messing with the Middlewieght Champ and Kelly needs to stop hanging in these places and drinking until he is done with his career. A few more years and hell I'll buy him all the booze he can drink. As long as you are an active boxer you should stop the hanging out and drinking. Kelly I'm a big fan but I don't want to see you waste your career and your future for a few drinks and a couple laughs. Wait a while and then you will not have as many goofballs trying to get in your wallet. A fan always Gary

I got a great divide, right around my bottom area, deep in the crack just like the Civics!

KELLY,

F@CK EVeryone! This whole place is a Sh*thole! I love the thrilling arguement about downtown vs. southside being safer or classier. WE LIVE IN THE YO! This place can pass for hell. It all sucks ass. Middle class vs. Low Class. Nobody here has any money. NO ONE! Even the elite ultrarich in this area suck hind tit to 90% of the nation. But we live here or visit here for one reason.

OUR FAMILIES: Crazy as they are they make us who we are. Our families are not always our immediate relations, they are our long time friends who we meet at bars on the southside, downtown hell, anywhere. We sometimes get food. We sometimes get drunk. We sometimes get out of control and that's just life in this Godforsaken place.

what??? Kelly is human??? R U kidding??
Yes people he drinks....oooohhhh....what a bad person that makes him...how dare he drink....know what?? I'll bet he eats, sleeps, sh*ts and wipes his ass like the rest of us too.....let's hope nobody ever criticizes the guy for that! Anytime you want to hang with my family Kelly, you're more than welcome to, to you haters.....jealousy gets you nowhere...I sure do bet though if it were you inthe bar having a few drinks after your hard day at work and the situation occured to you it would have had a completely different outcome huh?

Are we done here yet? Here is an interesting thought. What will Mr. Pavlik's bar in Struthers be like?

"No matter what any of you say, there is no disputing the fact that downtown is cleaner, safer, and more desirable than the south or east sides."

This isn't saying much at all.

I love how all of the people trashing the civics have probably never set a foot in there. That's because I doubt they can even get in. Its a private club where people from lots of different backgrounds go to relax and have a good time. Its not "all low lives and scum" as reported by the people on here who think they know everything and in reality have no idea of the truth. If you don't like the south side then don't go down there. Go downtown and hang out with all of the frat boys and crooked businessmen. One of my friends was hit in the head with a beer bottle in 'safe' downtown. It can happen ANYWHERE. And anyone who would say anything bad at all about Lori has clearly never met her because she is one of the best people you will ever meet and would do anything in the world to help a person out. She is the reason we even go to the civics. And for being such a 'piece of trash' the civics seems to be good enough for HBO, ESPN and all of the other TV stations to come and film down there. So to all of you haters out there-mind your own business. If you've never been to the civics keep your opinions of it to yourselves because they are uninformed and ridiculous.
