Pavlik Boozing? Brawls With Brother Michael Per Police

By Chris LaBate

According to the Youngstown Vindicator, the hometown paper of Kelly Pavlik, the former middleweight champion was involved in a physical altercation with his brother, Michael Pavlik Jr., last Friday at their parents home. Youngstown police filed a report Friday stating that Kelly Pavlik, 29, and Michael Pavlik Jr., 35, were involved in a disagreement at the parents home.

Michael lives at the home, but Kelly lives in Canfield. Reports say the brothers had been drinking at the time of the incident.

Kelly Pavlik was released from alcohol-abuse treatment and returned to Youngstown in January after two months of rehabilitation. According to police, Kelly, after exchanging words with Michael, “punched the west-facing side door of the home and pulled his brother, Michael, out of the broken window.”

Reports say officers found glass to have been broken and blood on nearby steps. Michael Pavlik, police said, appeared to have minor cuts to his arms and hands. Kelly Pavlik had left the home before officers arrived. Michael Pavlik, reportedly, told officers repeatedly he did not wish to file charges against his brother.

The fight between the brothers was witnessed by Michael’s girlfriend, who was at the home. Michael Pavlik in 2009 was charged with felony domestic violence for an attack on a former girlfriend. He served 35 days of a 60-day county-jail sentence.

Kelly Pavlik returns to action on August 6th against Darryl Cunningham at the Covelli Center in Youngstown, Ohio.

Great, now Bute is going to get another easy win against a bum when he fights Pavlik. A drunken bum at that.
