Pavlik vs Sturm The Target if Williams Falls Through

by Mark Vester

WBC/WBO middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik is pushing for a shot at Paul Williams. Injuries and failed negotaitions have pushed the fight back for nearly two years. There had been some talk that Pavlik would test the waters at super middleweight but he plans to stay at 160 for the moment. There are two targets at the weight, Williams and WBA champion Felix Sturm. If Pavlik can't get Williams, he wants Top Rank to get him a unification with Sturm.

“If we can’t get Williams, I definitely want Sturm, but right now I think Williams is definitely the better fight,” Pavlik said to The Vindicator. “I think that’s the fight that the fans want to see. That’s the fight that I want.”

Pavlik's trainer Jack Loew agrees. He would like to see Pavlik in against Williams or Sturm next. He thinks Sturm would a great test now that trainer Freddie Roach is in his corner.

"He definitely wants to fight Paul Williams next; hopefully we can make it happen," says Loew. "And we'd love to fight Felix Sturm. He's got the great Freddie Roach in his corner now."
