- but on a serious note, kudos to Kelly! I retired from the Ams for the same reason. I was 20-0, and a heavily-defensive fighter ala Floyd / Ward (not as good, of course.) My 21st fight, a future famous MW knocked me cold. I suddenly realized how dangerous the sport was (had thought I was invincible) and retired the next day.
May I ask who?

I wish he warned me a couple years ago that he wasn't serious about this shit.
I loved the whole " all boxers deserve respect" bullshit saying how they do all this for "us" and now what? What exactly has he done for "us" lately besides cancel fights with Williams because he was a weak pos that couldn't deal with life with out booze and coke? **** him.

Yes he was. Hopkins was undisputed then Taylor then Pavlik.

Same shit with Kelly, but I hear "oh good for you Kelly. Good job Kells. We love you man. We need to have a drink together soon man. Yeah good job, you beat Jermaine Taylor twice, so you're allowed to retire"

And if you truely believe he's shot, then I understand were you're coming from. But I don't think he's done. If he puts the damn drinks down and keeps training under Garcia, he'll be fine. He's not at his peak, but he's not shot
The top fighters get shit on the most, you know that's how it is. Kelly Pavlik has been all but irrelevant for years. Him and Floyd are just totally different cases. No one knows just how badly Kelly has wrecked his brain the last several years. I thought he's looked pretty shitty in his comeback. Power still there, but slower than ever and just waiting to get schooled by any A-level fighter who doesn't lead with his face. A nasty good riddance or a kind bon voyage, who cares at this point...

exactly what I'm talking about. This guy has shit on his fans so many times. Idk why they put up with it. I liked Kelly myself and thought he was a cool guy based on the videos from Ellie Suckballs.
But this guy is a big waste of time. And I'm glad you brought the Williams situation up. I remember he canceled another fight not too long ago a day or 2 before the damn fight because he's an alcoholic

But oh no, that's ok Kelly. We love you. You cancel as many fights as you want. Matter a fact, you can retire in the middle of your comeback trail

For a P4P touted guy, yes he has a weak resume. For a MW champ, it's not horrible horrible.

Jermain Taylor X2
Edison Miranda
Marco Antonio Rubio
Fulgencio Zuniga
Gary Lockett
Plus a non-trained alcoholic Pavlik won 4 rounds and KD'd Sergio Martinez... better than most do there.

And yes, he was THE undisputed MW champ.

Hopkins > Taylor > Pavlik > Sergio

Unless of course you don't think Sergio is the undisputed champ either.

Yeah he cancelled his fight with Darryl Cunningham like 3 days before the fight because all of a sudden $50k wasn't enough. And the fight was sold out in his hometown of Ohio to be aired live on shobox.

****kkkkkkkk him!!!!!!!!!

Watch him announce his comeback before the end of the year then quit in the middle of the fight after the rail of coke he just snorted off one of the Tecate girls asses wears off and then everyone will start a circle jerk and "pray" and wish Kelly the best and hope he gets pass his "demons".

He doesn't have demons. There are no such thing!!! Its called being WEAK!!!!!

Hoe does someone that walks around at around 200 pounds not train and yet come in a half pound under the limit?

So stupid.

Thank you Kelly for the exciting fights over the years.

I hope he stays healthy and happy in his retirement. Assuming he can stay away from the drink while retired, I think it's the best thing for him.

Probably. But I still think it's the right time to show appreciation for what he's achieved and the entertainment he's given us boxing fans.
