Kelly Pavlik Might Face Lucian Bute
andre ward had to cancel his scheduled bout with kelly pavlik due to an injured shoulder but there are now rumors tying pavlik to both lucian bute and arthur abraham according to a press release from arum.
the fight, if it pushes through would generate massive revenue in either fighter's home turf i.e. montreal or germany. it's also a winnable fight for pavlik.
pavlik has an excellent right hand and the southpaw bute has shown vulnerability to being hit by that punch at will. abraham is slow and not an active fighter in the ring. pavlik's stock could once again sky rocket if he wins both fights in 2013. after that, he can then face ward maybe autumn of 2013.
