Plant City, Florida | The event promoter at the Probox Event Center wouldn’t say so publicly, but Jean Pascal spoiled his company’s plans with a victory over Fanlong Meng.
Now with this 36And Career victory in 43 games, what’s next for the former world champion?
The main interested party thinks he could fight the championship on his next tour.
“I just beat the number one contender in FIFA. He was an undefeated boxer. I’m back in the mix. I shouldn’t have left this position.
“I’m back at the top. I’m going to sit down with Greg Lyon to keep things going.
Like going to a restaurant
Leon has his work cut out for him. He will try to find another paid fight for Pascal which should happen before the end of the year. With his victory on Friday, he has good cards in hand.
“It’s like going to a restaurant,” Greg Lyon explained. We will look at the menu and decide which dish we want to eat.
“We will try to make the most reasonable decision. We will decide as a team as we have always done while explaining the advantages and disadvantages of Jan.
The Quebec boxer’s manager will now have to pressure FIFA to find a suitable place in the ranking of this body that imposes sanctions on its athletes.
“At the time of heavyweight, I already warned the FIFA representative that Jin’s fight against Fanlong Ming had met all the criteria (weight and number of rounds) to be a knockout fight.
“From my discussions with IBF members, I think it is unrealistic to think that Gene might find himself in the position of number one contender. We did not pay the penalty fee in a playoff match.”
It is not impossible for Pascal to find himself in the top five in this league behind Joshua Poatsey, Anthony Yarde, Gilberto Ramirez and Badu Jack.
At the moment, it’s hard to think that Pascal could find himself in contention for a world title by the end of the year. There is already a unification match between Artur Petterbiev and Joe Smith Jr. in June. Three out of four 175-pound titles will be at stake.
Another lightweight champion, Dimitri Bevol, could receive a proposal for a second match against Canelo Alvarez. However, nothing has been confirmed.
We launched an idea like this: a second duel between Pascal and Jack at 180 or 185 pounds. It would be a good time for the two men to settle old accounts that have been going on since December 2019.
