Pavlik To Face Jaco on March 31, Max Weight of 170 Set

By Osman Rodriguez

Former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik (37-2, 32KOs) has confirmed BoxingScene.com's report from last week , regarding a scheduled fight on March 31 in San Antonio, Texas. 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.
