PLAYERS: Kelly Pavlik

Last night, Youngstown’s Kelly Pavlik defeated Scott Sigmon via TKO in the seventh round on a national stage at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Cleveland.com has the details of The Ghost’s big victory on his comeback trail.

The former middleweight champ from Youngstown stopped his second straight opponent, defeating 25-year-old Scott Sigmon by seventh-round TKO after ref Jay Nady was advised by a ringside doctor that a cut over Sigmon’s eye was too severe to continue.

“I felt good. I could have probably ended things a little bit earlier, but the kid showed some guts,” Pavlik said. “I did what I could do and beat him to a pulp. He took a great punch, a great body shot. I spent a little too much time on the inside thinking that he would get tired. He was in great shape.”

The 30-year-old Pavlik (39-2, 34 KOs) improved is unbeaten streak in Sin City to 12-0 with the victory over the lightly regarded Sigmon (22-4, 12 KOs)’.

“The Ghost” certainly was more spectacular against the Virginia native than he was a year ago when he held off Alfonso Lopez by majority decision in Las Vegas.
