Jean Pascal Hit With Minor Food Poisoning Spell

By Rick Reeno

Promoter Yvon Michel advised BoxingScene.com that former champion Jean Pascal (27--2-1, 16KOs) was taken to the hospital with a minor spell of food poisoning. Michel indicates the situation is not serious and his fighter will be fine. Pascal is scheduled to face his Canadian rival Lucian Bute (31-1, 24KOs), likely on December 7th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, and with HBO televising. If December 7th does not come off, Pascal-Bute has an alternative date in January.

"It was something he ate. He wasn't feeling well. It was food poisoning, but he will be fine," Michel told BoxingScene.com.

Oh my....I hope he's better in five months. Keep us informed. Hopefully there aren't any more speedbumps like stubbed toes or stuffy noses.
