Kelly "The Ghost" Pavlik - New Middleweight Champion

25-year-old Youngstown native, Kelly "The Ghost" Pavlik won the World Boxing Council and World Boxing organization middleweight title tonight, stopping Jermain Taylor before 10,127 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Pavlik landed a vicious right cross midway through the seventh round that dazed the former champion. Pavlik followed that up with a barrage of punches in his corner before referee Steve Smoger stopped the fight at the 2-minute, 14-second mark.

Congrats to "The Ghost" for bringing the championship back to Y-Town!
