hot off the presses

from ESPN the magazine: a story

They love Pavlik in Youngstown.

They see him running Rocky-style through Mill Creek Park—six miles in 31 minutes—and shopping at the grocery store. "He can live anywhere," Cox says, "and he lives here."

That's empowering if you're struggling to make it work in a city that's struggling to make it work.

The city's motto is "Defend Youngstown."

Who does it better than Pavlik?

His fists are an extension of all of them.

If this was a movie, I would think it was total bullshit. Nobody is that good.

But there you have it. Kelly Pavlik is that good. What a life, what a guy.
