Kelly Pavlik Confirms Brotherly Brawl, Denies Drinking

By Chris LaBate

Former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik has confirmed that there was a physical confrontation between him and his brother, Michael Pavlik Jr., last Friday night at their parents' home, but he denies consuming any alcohol at the time of the incident. According to Youngstown police reports, both men were allegedly drinking at the time of the incident, and after a verbal argument Kelly Pavlik punched a door to the home and pulled his brother out of the broken window.

Kelly Pavlik, who via telephone spoke to a Youngstown television station on Tuesday, admits that he did arrive at his parents' home and ended up in a fight with his brother but said he was not drinking and has no idea why his brother told police that he consumed alcohol at the time of their incident. Michael Pavlik declined to press charges. 

Kelly was released from alcohol abuse treatment in January. He returns to the ring on August 6th against Darryl Cunningham in Showtime televised fight.

This is the type of dirty laundry we don't need to hear about it. Whatever they were fighting about, we don't need to hear it. I find this news disgusting.
