Jean Pascal vs Badou Jack
Fight Date: Saturday, Dec. 28
Start Time: 10 p.m. ET
Location: Atlanta, GA (State Farm Arena)
Pascal vs Jack is for the WBC silver light-heavyweight and the WBA light-heavyweight world titles. This prizefight goes down at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Davis vs Gamboa is in the main event of the evening on this stacked night of fights to close out the year. Jack is looking to regain his WBA regular title that has been hot potatoed around since he dropped it. In his first fight back since losing the belt, he’ll have to unseat the savvy veteran titlist Jean Pascal. The odds and my bout predictions are down below.
Pascal vs Jack PREDICTION
Jack is coming off a loss to Browne and Pascal a win, although Pascal was losing the fight until landing three knock downs before the premature stoppage. Jack is rejuvenated after nearly a year out and has the technique to avoid Pascal’s bombs and the endurance to get more rounds in the bank but do not count out a knockout.
