Retired boxer Kelly Pavlik to enter plea in theft case

Posted: Updated:

CANFIELD, Ohio - Former middleweight boxing champion Kelly Pavlik is expected to enter into a plea agreement when he returns to the same court room in which he collapsed last week.

According to online information from Mahoning County court in Canfield, Pavlik is scheduled to enter the plea on February 28.

On Friday the retired boxer suffered an apparent seizure during a court appearance to answer a theft charge filed back in September. A cab driver claimed Pavlik allegedly refused to pay a $25.00 cab fare.

Pavlik told 21 News about the seizures when he retired in January of 2013. Pavlik also cited seizures during a recent OVI arrest, where you could see him visibly shaking on the Ohio State Highway Patrol's dashcam.

Sources say Pavlik has suffered from a number of seizures in recent months.
