Pavlik Eyes Ward vs. Dawson Winner, Froch, Bute

by Ernest Gabion

Former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik (39-2, 34KOs) is not anticipating a future return to the middleweight division. Pavlik believes his days at 160-pounds are officially over. On July 7th at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, Pavlik is scheduled for action in his fourth consecutive fight at 168 or above. He faces tough Will Rosinsky in an HBO televised co-feature.

"Right now its looking like 99% that we're going to stay at super middleweight. I have no problem making the weight. I'm strong and I'm energized and there is a ton of fights at that weight," Pavlik told BoxingScene.com.

Pavlik disclosed several possible options - including the winner of Andre Ward vs. Chad Dawson, IBF champion Carl Froch, or the recently beaten Lucian Bute.

"That's a huge fight right there, whoever wins that fight - Chad Dawson or Andre Ward [can be a possibility]. Those are top dogs right there. Dawson is the top dog at 175 and Ward is the top dog at 168. Those are huge fights. Froch is still a huge fight and even Bute is still a big fight, he's still a big draw," Pavlik said.

Pavlik against the winner of Abraham-Stieglitz would be good too. There are several interesting options out there for Kelly.

[QUOTE=-Lowkey-;12259621]I think that’s unrealistic Bute coming off a devastating career hurting loss like he suffered at the hands of Froch I really can’t see his next fight being against anyone other than a journeyman as a confidence builder. I don’t…

[QUOTE=4Corners;12259603]Froch will be fighting Kessler probably, Ward isn't going to fight again this year after Dawson. He should look for Bute in the fall.[/QUOTE] I think that’s unrealistic Bute coming off a devastating career hurting loss like he suffered at…
