Kelly Pavlik puts his WBC and WBO middleweight title belts at risk tonight against Sergio Martinez at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.
Pavlik, 36-1 (32), is making his third appearance since going up to super middle and getting schooled by ageless modern day great Bernard Hopkins and it will be interesting to see if there are is any remaining confidence issues for the Ohio based champion.
Martinez, 44-2-2 (24), is finally getting a world title shot after 12 years as a professional but the Argentine southpaw has had to go up to middleweight for the opportunity.
Most recently, Martinez lost a very close majority decision to former WBO welter titlist Paul Williams in December and previously held the Interim WBC light middle title by defeating Alex Bunema in 2008 and defending it by draw against Kermit Cintron in February, 2009.
Pavlik has won two straight, stopping challengers Marco Antonio Rubio and Miguel Angel Espino in 2009 but neither opponents were at the skill level of Martinez. More...

Saturday night at Bally's Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey unbeaten Philadelphia boxer Mike Jones brought his record to 20-0 (16) retaining the NABA Welterweight Title with a 10 round decision over tough challenger Henry 'El Nitro' Bruseles, of Puerto Rico. The card was promoted by Top Rank in association with Peltz Boxing Promotions.
Bruseles, now 28-4-1 (15) a winner of seven consecutive bouts since losing to Floyd Mayweather in a WBC eliminator in 2005, gave away reach and height to Jones, who peppered him with jab combinations all night. Bruseles hung tough and with eight of his previous bouts that went the distance, wasn't going anywhere.
He won the first, third and fifth rounds by landing outside shots, and some pretty good counter shots to the head and body. Jones landed many big right hands to win at least seven, maybe eight of the ten rounds. Jones, ranked eight by the WBA and eleventh by IBF, stated "I like going 10 rounds with competition. Bruseles is a veteran. I'm not disappointed."
