Alcoholism is no joke.
sad thing is that he probably had that problem before he even became champ but it just went into overdrive afterwards. there are some reports about his behavior from way back. dude has his demons for sure.

He was one of my favourite fighters before he was on the decline. Good jab, good chin, good power and good punch versatility. It's a shame what happened.

One of my favorites, Martinez frustrated him and destroyed him

Passed on the lineal legacy honorably

In hindsight, it looks like his team did a good job keeping it quiet as best they could. Whether that was a good thing or not given Pavlik's state now is a whole other story.

It's a damn shame, though. He accomplished more than most fighters hope to but is still a "what-if" story. I just hope he gets himself straightened out for his and his family's stake before someone winds up dead.

he's on the fast track to an early death mired in a cloud of alcoholic confusion. It will be very painful for his family to watch.

Kellie "Pale as a Ghost" Pavlic was one of the most overrated fighters in he history of the sport. The undeserving hype he was receiving was quite sickening.

Taylor and Miranda both were left in a pile of themselves with a face full of Steve Smogers crotch in the 7th round after being heavy favorites. What hype was he getting then? Rhetorical question mind you though I'm pretty sure you have no idea what that word means
