CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER PAPER LISTED “PEDRO FERNANDEZ A SCUMBAG”
San Francisco, CA- Having had in my possession for a while now, a videotape of former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik falling off a Stand Up Comedy club stage in his native Youngstown, OH, not once, but twice, I had withheld it from you due to a number of reasons. The first being, everybody has skeletons in their closet. Be it drinking, drugs, hard and soft, a sexual scandal, nobody is perfect.
JOEY MAXSE & CAMERON DUNKIN BOTH HOLDING THE BAG
So, when I wrote here at RingTalk.com that not only was Pavlik an alcoholic, but that he had be seeking alcohol rehabilitation, Pavlik’s manager and the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s (the city’s #1 newspaper) writer Joey Maxse, they came after me and called me,
“A liar, a scumbag,” just to highlight two of the remarks made in Maxse’s lengthy column slamming me.
PEDRO WAS JUST AHEAD OF THE REST OF THE PACK…AGAIN!
Just as was the case when I accused Shane Mosley of using Steroids before the Oscar De La Hoya rematch, his lawyer Judd Burstein, they sent me threatening letters, emails, hell, even Shane’s father Jack Mosley slandered me in an article saying, “I couldn’t be taken seriously.” Years later, Mosley admitted under oath, this after having me ousted from press row for telling the truth, that he did indeed “Use Steroids and EPO before the second De La Hoya fight.”
AFTER MAXSE’S COLUMN PAVLIK ADMITTED ALCOHOL REHAB
After belittling me globally, one would think that Maxse, who must be in his 60's by now, would have realized he had slandered and defamed me and wrote a retraction and a letter of apology. But like Pavlik was in denial, I guess Joey Maxse was/is as well. Right now, I am consulting with attorneys regarding both potential cases. Like when I sued Bob Arum and successfully garnered $10,000 in an out of court settlement, nobody thought I had the Top Rank CEO legally cornered after he slandered me in a Las Vegas Review Journal article, which I believe was penned by suspected shill Kevin Iole.
CALL ME WHAT YOU WANT, BUT YOU CAN'T CALL ME WRONG HERE! In the near future, we intend to put the video of Pavlik, drunk as a skunk falling down off a stage twice and making a complete fool out of himself. That's my intention, but I'll have to see what the lawyers have to say. But we have the video, the goods, just like we had the goods on Shane Mosley, whose ex-wife Jin Mosley even penned a piece at BoxingTalk.com that shredded me, Shane's lawyer Judd Burstein, Jack Mosley, we have the goods on Cameron Dunkin and Joey Maxse.
