Comments Thread For: Kelly Pavlik Withdraws From Darryl Cunningham Clash
YOUNGSTOWN – Former World Middleweight Champion and current World Boxing Council (WBC) No. 1-rated super middleweight contender KELLY “The Ghost” PAVLIK’s professional boxing comeback took a wrong turn inasmuch as Pavlik withdrew from his upcoming 10-round bout against Darryl Cunningham today. The Pavlik-Cunningham bout was scheduled to take place on Saturday at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown, OH, and was to be televised live on SHOWTIME® as the main event of a special edition of ShoBox: The New Generation. Both the broadcast and the live event have been canceled. Ticketholders can get a refund by returning their tickets to the place of purchase. [Click Here To Read More]

I wrote this in another thread where Pavlik cancelled because they offered him 1.2m for fighting Bute so he got mad and cancelled this fight and not gonna fight Bute for a measly "1.2m"
Lol @ Lowball offer, either you fight or you dont, Bute is the only draw in a Bute-Pavlik fight, yet you want them to make the same?
Bute can do 20-30k in Montreal OR Romania.
and just because a gate grosses 5m doesnt mean fighters split it 50/50.
Theres rent,promoters,staff,expenses,etc,etc ,etc.
1.2m for Pavlik is OVERPAYING. He doesnt bring anything to the table, no belt, very few fans will come to see him and his stock isnt what it used to be.
He is a total idiot for rejecting this, not only will he not get paid for this fight (prolly like 100k) but he missing a 1.2m payday.
So lets do some math 100k + 1.2m = 1.3m in your bank account
Sitting home this friday = 0m + not fighting Bute = 0m hmmmm
let me do this straight 0 + 0 = 0
So 0 > 1.3m?

first his problems with his brother and rumor that he's drinking (even if he wasn't drinking, he dragged his ****ing brother through a window)
pavlik's career as a boxer is all over
this seals the deal
what a horrible thing to do to so many people
top rank might dump him completely
we'll see what details surface in the coming weeks
Winter is coming
