Jean Pascal – Badou Jack Is Tough But Am Ready
WBA light Heavyweight Champion Jean Pascal will be making his first title defense against former two weight world champion Badou Jack on Saturday night 28th Dec. on the Davis Gamboa undercard.
Jean Pascal (34-6-1, 20 KO) stunned the boxing World when he dropped the formerly undefeated Marcus Browne (23-1, 16 KO) thrice en route to a victory the earned him his status a two time World champion. Pascal first won a title back in 2009, WBC, IBO, The Ring and lineal light-heavyweight titles.
The Premier Boxing Champions Main Event will have former world champions Gervonta Davis and Yuriorkis Gamboa battle for the WBA Lightweight World title at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
Pascal believed he was underrated for the fight against Browne but he proved them wrong and despite admitting the fight with Jack will be a tough one, he is ready for anything he will be bringing to the ring.
“This summer, America witnessed my skills in the ring once again, with my victory over Browne. People underestimated me thinking I didn’t have enough gas left in the tank. It was on me to prove them wrong, and I did just that. Hate it or love it, I always give the fans an exciting show. Jack is a tough opponent, but I’m ready for him,” said Pascal.
The 2002 common wealth gold winner Pascal has been in the ring with notable fighters such as Carl Froch, Adrian Diaconu, Chad Dawson, Bernard Hopkins, Lucian Bute, Sergey Kovalev, Eleider Álvarez, and Dmitry Bivol.
Badou Jack will be back in the boxing ring for the first time after a year absence.
