By Chris LaBate

Jean Bedard, President on InterBox, said former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik is also in the running to fight IBF super middleweight champ Lucian Bute. Pavlik is back against Alfonso Lopez on the Manny Pacquiao-Shane Mosley undercard on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The other high profile option for Bute, is obviously Mikkel Kessler, who sat ringisde at the Bell Centre in Montreal to watch Bute retain his belt with a tenth round TKO of Brian Magee.

"We are looking at our opportunities and we'll meet Monday to discuss everything. Kessler and Pavlik are actually in our discussions. Certainly there are exciting things to come," Bedard said. "We've already had interesting discussions and now more doors have opened, which include Kessler and Kelly Pavlik."

[QUOTE=Slyboots]Picking on 2 seriously inactive fighters (one coming off alcohol rehab and the other coming off an eye injury) doesn't really help his image of being a protected fighter who picks on not so stellar opposition. But given the status of the division he's in, I suppose he doesn't ...

[QUOTE=ThePhantom5]Pavlik-Kessler= Winner gets Bute[/QUOTE] I like the idea, because it means we see an extra great fight, but it doesn't seem right that two more accomplished fighters should have to fight for the right to fight a belt holder without a serious name on his resume.

Pavlik is a very dangerous fight for Bute. He keeps his hands up, comes forward, and throws straight punches with a lot of power. He doesnt back off, he is a physical beast. Librado Andrade had Bute out in there first fight, I think Kelly has a solid chance to beat him.

Pavlik? Maybe. Kessler? Maybe. But if Gennady Golovkin showed up in Montreal looking for him, Bute would panic, fly back to Romania and hide up Dracula's bum hole.
