CANFIELD, Ohio – Former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count charging him with driving an all-terrain vehicle while drunk.
The Vindicator newspaper in Youngstown reports Pavlik's attorney, Damian Billak, entered the plea on his behalf in a Mahoning County court. Billak says they look forward to addressing the issues in court.
Deputies say the 29-year-old Pavlik was arrested Wednesday night at his home outside Youngstown after a neighbor reported he crashed the ATV into a telephone pole and lamppost.
Billak says Kelly plans to relocate to California.
A pre-trial hearing is set for Jan. 13.
