Dawson-Pascal Rematch Getting Pushed To May Date

By Luke Furman

The rematch between WBC light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (31-2, 17KOs), and challenger Jean Pascal (27-2-1, 16KOs), is getting pushed back to an HBO televised date in May - according to Pascal's promoter Yvon Michel of GYM. The fight was going to happen on March 9th, and then pushed to March 23, but then it was pushed back again. Since there were no available venue dates in April, Michel and promoter Gary Shaw are forced to secure a date in May.

Pascal won an eleven round technical decision over Dawson in 2010. Pascal would later lose the title to Bernard Hopkins, who then lost the title to Dawson.

"We had originally discussed the date of March 9, at the request of network HBO, Yvon Michel told 98.5 Sports. The people at HBO wanted it to take place on the same night as the Hopkins-Cloud fight. It was then referred to the date of March 23, but that date is now reserved for Interbox. There were no available Saturday nights in April, because of the Montreal Canadien games. So we decided to push to May."

At this stage, I like Pascal a lot more than Dawson. Hope he beats him again.
