This coming Thursday, March 16, at Place Bell in Laval, Canada, see Jean Pascal vs Michael Eifert.

A rematch for the IBF light heavyweight championship between Jean Pascal (36-6) and Michael Eifert (27-3) brings boxing back to Canada. (11-1). The bout takes place at the Place Bell in Laval, Canada, and the victor will go on to challenge Artur Beterbiev for his undisputed title. Both guys have many reasons to perform at their best this Thursday in Canada.

Jean Pascal is prepared for his next major test after his recent success against COVID-19. On March 16, the former world champion will be fighting Michael Eifert in a fight for the IBF light heavyweight championship.

Now back in Canada, Pascal fights it out in Quebec City’s historic Place Bell.

As a novice, Pascal won two gold medals; he turned pro in 2005 and went 21 fights without losing until Carl Froch stopped him in 2008. He won the WBC light heavyweight championship in 2009 after defeating Adrian Diaconu and added the IBO and Ring titles in 2010. In spite of losing the title to Bernard Hopkins in 2011, Pascal never stopped training for another gold. Pascal won the interim WBA light-heavyweight championship (later promoted to “Regular” champion) by defeating Marcus Browne and then defended it that same year against Badou Jack, after previously losing the titles to Sergey Kovalev and Dmitry Bivol.

Following a negative substance test, Pascal came back to fight in May 2022 and defeated Meng Fanlong. Pascal, 40, tested positive for COVID-19, cancelling their scheduled February 9 battle with Eifert. The Montreal Gazette reported that he said the delay in training had been tough on his physique but that he had been able to improve his performance in some ways.

In 2018, Eifert entered the professional league. After losing to Tom Dzemski in 2020, Eifert went on a five-fight winning streak, with his most recent victory coming via a majority decision in July against Adriano Sperandio.
