Pavlik Likely Back in October: Arum Eyes Bute, Kessler

By Rick Reeno

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum advised BoxingScene.com that Kelly Pavlik (40-2, 34KOs) will likely return in the month of October. Arum is working out the details with HBO for an October televised date.

On Saturday night at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California - Pavlik made his HBO return and won a hard-fought ten round unanimous decision over Will Rosinsky.

Top Rank is now positioning Pavlik for a big fight in October. Arum tells BoxingScene that among the vast crop of potential opponents at 168-pounds - showdowns with former champions Lucian Bute (30-1 24KOs) and Mikkel Kessler (45-2, 34KOs) are "the easiest fights to make." 

Pavlik's return could possibly tie in with a potential featherweight fight between WBO champion Orlando Salido and unbeaten contender Mikey Garcia, according to Arum.

Bute it is then

Way too much Pavlik bashing. Kelly fought a very game, very athletic B level fighter... The kind that lasts the distance. Kelly has had a couple of tune up fights and got good work. Sure, early round KOs are preferrable…
