I feel sorry for Pavlik. Somebody with his abilities and skill to come to this. Whether it was physical or psychological- or a combination of the two- it's sad when somebody once on top comes to this.

I think the biggest fight of his life is still ahead- defeating his own internal Demons. I wish him Luck.
