Pascal vs. George official for Dec.6, Pascal signs multi-fight deal with Interbox
By Joe Bruiser (22-Oct-2014)
Jean Pascal will return to the ring for the second time in 2014 against hard hitting Donovan George Dec.6 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
Former light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KOs) has signed a four fight promotional deal with Interbox Promotions, with the first fight of the deal taking place on Interbox’s Dec.6 card at the Bell Centre in Montreal, QC on the undercard of Bute vs. Bolonti. Pascal’s opponent will be Donovan George (26-4-2, 22 KOs).
After months of promotional problems, which derailed a proposed September fight against Tavoris Cloud, the Dec.6 fight against George will mark the first time Pascal has fought twice in one calendar year since 2010. The Interbox deal should also provide other high profile fights for Pascal, who recently dominated Lucian Bute over 12 rounds in the biggest selling domestic fight in Canadian history.
“I am very happy to be fighting George. He took Adonis Stevenson to the 12th round and I plan to do better so that fight fans can use this as a measuring stick for an eventual fight between Stevenson and I.” - Jean Pascal
