Jean Pascal is a boxer on the rise. Before he can cash in on the very big fights he does have to take on the likes or Roberto Feliciano Bolonti and win. If he wins this light heavyweight fight then bigger paydays like Adonis Stevenson or Sergey Kovalev lie ahead.
This fight is happening because Bolonti was first supposed to fight Lucien Bute, but he dropped out. Now Bolonti has to face the younger and more lethal Jean Pascal. Pascal also beat Bute recently. Bolonti, an Argentinean, is not considered one of the bigger names in the weight class though taking him lightly could be at your peril.
Pascal will move in and out of range. His punches usually come in flurries. Hand speed and durability are his fortes. Bolonti is good at setting his bigger punches up with jabs.
After only three fights in three years Pascal seems to be back on track. He has worked hard to get here and cannot have a setback. Bolonti is a decent fighter though he does not have crazy power so Pascal is everyone’s favourite going into the bout.
