Jean Pascal vs Tavoris Cloud Postponed
It appears as though Montreal fight fans who were looking forward to the return of Jean Pascal will have to wait a little longer . GYM, (Pascal's promoter) have scheduled a press conference to be held Wednesday July 25th at 10am where the postponement of the August 11th title fight between Pascal and American IBF Titleholder Tavoris Cloud is expected to be made official. Jean had suffered a few weeks back what he called a "minor injury" to his right hand but it know seems that same injury will force the delay. It's another unfortunate setback for the former light-heavyweight champion who has not fought since May of 2011, a UD defeat at the hands of 46 year old Bernard Hopkins. Tomorrow's press conference will hopefully provide answers to other remaining questions such as: What is the fate of the rest of the August 11th Card tentatively scheduled to be held at the Bell Centre? Will Adonis Stevenson become the main event or is the whole show cancelled? When will Pascal-Cloud end up fighting and is Showtime still on board? Regardless of the potential answers provided by GYM, this a major disappointment for local and worldwide boxing fans alike.
