Pavlik is reportedly going to face Aaron Jaco (15-2, 5KOs) of Florida. Jaco is a light heavyweight and BoxingScene.com was advised that the agreed-upon weight will be a max of 170-pounds. This will be the first fight for Pavlik under the guidance of Robert Garcia.
Pavlik hopes to fight again in June, possibly on the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and then again in September, which could be a potential meeting with WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
