Jean Pascal on the ring at Laval?


The clash between Quebecer Jean Pascal and German Michael Eifert will be presented at Place Bell in Laval on February 9. 

It's what advanced the specialized site BoxingScene, Thursday.

It will be an elimination fight of the IBF at the light heavyweights. The winner of this duel will then become the mandatory challenger of Montrealer of Russian origin Artur Beterbiev. The latter holds the IBF world champion belt, as well as those of the WBC and the WBO.

Pascal (36-6-1, 20 K.-O.) is unbeaten in front of the Quebec public since his victory against Steve Bossé in July 2018. Since then, he has put on the gloves four times in the United States.

For his part, Eifert (11-1, 4 K.-O.) has never fought outside of Europe.

Also remember that Pascal was talked about for the wrong reasons last week, when he was arrested for drunk driving in downtown Montreal. After being pulled over for making a right turn at a red light, the 40-year-old pugilist allegedly refused to submit to a proper alcohol test and was handcuffed.
