Kelly Pavlik: Pacquiao-Mosley Spot Very Likely, Says Arum

By Lem Satterfield

Top Rank Promotions CEO, Bob Arum, called it "a big possibility" that former WBC and WBO middleweight champion, Kelly Pavlik, could fight on the May 7 under card of the Showtime televised main event featuring eight-division titlist Manny Pacquiao' against three-division, five-time chapion, Shane Mosley, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"We're holding a spot on that card," said Arum. "Kelly wants to do it, we want to do it. So there is a big possibility that he could be on the card."

A 28-year-old resident of Youngstown, Ohio, Pavlik (36-2, 32 knockouts) was released on Jan. 4 from the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., after having been admitted for an alcohol problem on Nov. 4.

Disagree. Kelly's straight shots would damage Andrade.
