Sergey Kovalev vs. Jean Pascal Fight

Ten months ago, Sergey Kovalev stopped Jean Pascal in the eighth round of a bout that, while concussive in its conclusion, was frequently entertaining as Pascal scored more than his share of telling blows. The record will show that their rematch, in the same Bell Centre arena in downtown Montreal, ended just one round sooner; but the contrast between the two contests was stark and ultimately uncomfortable. It wasn’t easy, but WBA, IBF and WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (27-0-1, 24 KOs) defeated Jean Pascal (29-3-1) via eighth-round TKO in a very good fight. Pascal fought well from rounds four through six in his adopted home of Montreal, Quebec, but he simply couldn’t withstand the powerful Russian champion’s assault.
