Pavlik to leave middleweight division

Published: Mon, May 10, 2010 @ 7:36 p.m.

After nearly a decade of fighting at middleweight, boxer Kelly Pavlik has decided to leave that weight division and fight at a higher class, his trainer, Jack Loew, said Monday evening.

Pavlik made the decision Monday afternoon after discussion with Loew and his co-managers Cameron Dunkin and Mike Pavlik Sr.

Pavlik, who has struggled to make the 160-pound limit for his last few fights, could fight at super middleweight (168) or even light heavyweight (175), Loew said.

Pavlik lost his WBC and WBO middleweight titles on April 17 in a unanimous decision loss to Sergio Martinez.

Well, I guess Larry Merchant did know what he was talking about when he said Pavlik would move up. Now, pick a few easy opponents that Kelly can beat...because he will not beat anyone legitimate!

I'm a little disappointed I would have loved to see him fight Martinez again. I think its a fight he could win.

Good luck Kelly
