Middleweight 35 1 0 (31)
Last Year s Ranking: 15
Status Report: It was a rough year for everyone s favorite blue collar puncher. After scoring an easy title defense against Miguel Espino (KO 5), Pavlik was beating Sergio Martinez in a war until Martinez opened a cut the size of all of Ohio over Pavlik s eye (L 12).
Future: At this writing Pavlik is undergoing treatment for alcoholism and might never fight again. If he does it s hard to imagine he will be as good as he was before he realized his every dream.
