Interesting local boxing match up in the works

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Could the Mahoning Valley see a boxing match between an up and coming fighter against a seasoned veteran?

Jack Loew tells Sports Director Dana Balash there have been some preliminary talks for Willie Nelson, trained by Loew, to possibly fight Valley native Billy Lyell on September 28th at Packard Music Hall in Warren.

Loew says Lyell is now being trained by Kelly Pavlik.

"We should know something later this week," Loew said about the possible match up.

Pavlik has said he wants to start training fighters and Lyell could be a good start for him.
