Apparently, Kelly Pavlik does not want to fight Scott "Cujo" Sigmon after all. Telling the Youngstown (Ohio) Vindicator newspaper that there was no contract signed, Pavlik has decided to take a bout on March 17. The bout with Sigmon was slated for April 14.
“There was never a fight scheduled for sure against him!” Pavlik wrote in his text. “He was the one that went to some boxing site! (Guess he means this one.)
“I wish I could fight the kid — he is horrible!”
I've talked to Sigmon since the word got out on this and he assured me that a contract had indeed been drawn up with Top Rank for this contest.
Writing on his Facebook page Monday night, Sigmon said, “I sadly regret to inform everyone that 37-2 Kelly Pavlik not to fight me. That’s right, he is afraid to fight [an] unskilled, protected ‘club’ fighter.”
