He said he doesn't want to risk his health and he doesn't have the motivation to train at a high level. He is only 30. It sucks because he makes some exciting fights. I would love to see him in there with Froch, Kessler, or Bute. Those are all exciting fights. Pavlik just lost the desire. It wouldn't be surprising to see him back in 2 or 3 years.

I have always liked Kelly. I was pretty sad when he got into alcohol and I was actually looking forward to his return against Ward.
In boxing, when you worry about your health too much, you will never give it 100% as you are more in the "stay safe" mode rather than in "Let me dish it out" mode.

I hope he'll be ok and the alcohol won't return into his suddenly "unemployed" hand.
