Jean Pascal will be fighting on Friday Night Fights this week
Unified super middleweight (NABF, NABA, NABO) North-American champion Jean Pascal (17-0 13KOs) from Laval Quebec, ranked 5th by the WBC, will be fighting in Quebec at the Pierre-Charbonneau center Kingsley Ikeke (23-2 13KOs), a boxer from Toronto for the NABF title. The fight will be broadcasted on ESPN2 and RDS Friday night LIVE.





"Ikeke is without a doubt the toughest challenge so far of my short career. This Nigerian fighter now living in Toronto is well known on the world boxing scene for his heart, determination and strenght. But i know what i have to do to win this fight. Just like Arthur Abraham did in 2005 in Germany (gave Ikeke his only KO loss), i will apply constant pressure on him and should win this fight before the 8th round." declared Jean Pascal yesterday
