Super middleweight contender Kelly Pavlik, 30, is on the cusp of career rejuvenation having successfully rehabilitated his personal life and takes on Scott Sigmon, 25, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas later tonight, Friday, June 8. Both Pavlik and Sigmon scaled in at 167lbs at the weigh-in yesterday, June 7 and, Kelly, if successful, could have a choice of bigger fights…

There is still debate as to whether 168lbs or a return to 160lb would best suit Kelly

Having relocated from Youngstown, Ohio to Oxnard, California, Pavlik (38-2-0, 33ko) is taking instruction from Robert Garcia, developing his left hook to the body and enjoying gym-life with Robert Garcia Boxing Academy stable-mate Brandon Rios. The 30-year-old is about to engage in his second fight of the year – and his comeback – having already dispatched of Aaron Jaco in two rounds in March. Sigmon (22-3-0, 12ko), though, is regarded to provide as much competition as Jaco, as Pavlik is matched with journeyman-level opposition that will restore his confidence as he aims to land a fight of significance later in the year, or in 2013 against Adonis Stevenson, Lucian Bute or Carl Froch.

    This fight proved that Kelly is still a long way from regaining his old skills, something he just might never do. I like Kelly, wish him well and truly want to see the old Kelly Pavlik in action but… I wasn’t impressed.

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
