Awhile back, an Indiana rap singer, Jon "Lyrical Lizard" Guthrie produced a pretty cool song saluting Youngstown boxer Kelly Pavlik.
Guthrie sent word this weekend that with the help of Youngstowner John Carraher, the song has been put to Pavlik highlight video, and it's a pretty cool mix of song and video.
The vids are from well-worn stock highlights of Pavlik's fights and knockouts. Some Pavlik-Taylor II highlights are worked in there.
It's a good boxing song. Watch it here. Language wise, it has a couple swear words, but not over the top.
It may even work well in the bingo halls if reports like last week's bumping in Austintown pop up again. If you missed the story Saturday, here it is.
Pavlik recently spent some time down in Florida doing a golf outing for Lou Gehrig's disease/Cancer for Kids event. The event was run by Heisman winner Gino Torretta, whose married to a Youngstowner.
Part of the event included folks going bald for kids cancer, and Pavlik joined in the shaving. Check out the link here.
