Sturm Tries To Grab Kelly Pavlik For June 25 Showdown

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com was advised that WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm (35-2, 15KOs) tried to secure Kelly Pavlik (36-2, 32KOs) for a fight in Germany on June 25. Sturm was willing to make the fight at a catch-weight of 165-pounds. The fight won't happen, at least for the moment. Pavlik has been inactive since last April's decision loss to Sergio Martinez.

Besides the inactivity, Pavlik is scheduled to fight Alfonso Lopez (21-0, 16KOs) on the Manny Pacquiao-Shane Mosley pay-per-view on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Before taking on a fighter like Sturm, Pavlik's handlers want their boxer to shake off the rust. Pavlik's performance against Lopez will determine how quickly his handlers will move him in position for a major fight.

In Pavlik's only interview since he got out of rehab he mentioned that fighting Sturm at 166 in Germany is something he might do, but he mentioned Bryan Vera in the same breath. I think that says something about where Pav ranks Sturm. It seems awfully convenient for Sturm to call KP out AFTER...

[quote=madamfackah]please that may fight is to shake up the rust[/quote] please that rust is from a year of inactivity I mean if your Pavlik's team would you want him going into a Sturm fight with just one shake out fight in May? if so then thank goodness you don't control a boxer's career
