"Brian Vera is going to discover on November 13 that his new world really is flat ... flat on his back," said Pavlik's trainer Jack Loew, from Team Pavlik’s training camp in California, PA, located outside Pittsburgh. "Kelly entered this training camp in superb condition, weighing less than 170 pounds. After hearing what Vera has already been saying about us, he should consider wearing a life vest into the ring because Kelly is taking him into deep water on November 13. Like the Ohio State Buckeyes, Kelly is looking to return to the top spot and it starts with the sinking of the U.S.S. Brian Vera of Austin, Texas. I hope there will be a microphone in Vera's corner so the world will hear them issue the order to abandon ship!”
