I don't know why DiBella wouldn't try to get Pascal to Atlantic City or Vegas though. Going to Montreal makes little sense. No doubt Froch would come to the U.S. also if it meant a fight with an HBO darling.
How many people would buy tickets in the U.S. for a Taylor-Pascal fight? There would be at very least 18k people in Montreal. If HBO is willing to broadcast from Montreal, then why not?
