It’s time to go toe-to-toe with the former Middleweight Champion of the WORLD, as boxing great Kelly “The Ghost” Pavlik joins the show.

It’s time to go toe-to-toe with the former Middleweight Champion of the WORLD, as boxing great Kelly “The Ghost” Pavlik joins the show. Kelly shares his experience meeting Avenged Sevenfold for the first time in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio and how the band plays a part in his self proclaimed “champ stamp” tattoo on his back.

We talk about Kelly’s introduction to boxing at a young age, and why he doesn’t think it would be a good career choice for his son. Kelly shares his thoughts on celebrity boxing bouts, and why it’s important you should watch them with the mindset that it’s an exhibition matchup. The Ghost also pulls back the curtain behind the boxing industry revealing that some champions don’t get paid as much as guys who can ‘put asses in seats.’

We break down friend-of-the-show Vergil Ortiz’s upcoming fight, and discuss why Kelly thinks Vergil is a man on a mission. Kelly explains the differences between the many governing bodies in boxing, and exposes the fees associated with being a World Champion. We talk Tyson/Holyfield III, Fury/Wilder III, and if there was any weight to the statements that Kelly made on Joe Rogan’s podcast about getting the itch to fight again!
