By Luke Furman

According to multiple sources in Canada, former champion Jean Pascal (29-2-1, 17KOs) has signed a co-promotional agreement with Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM) and InterBox. Previously, GYM had an exclusive promotional with Pascal, but that agreement ran out after Pascal's January decision win over Canadian rival Lucian Bute.

Pascal was one of the biggest free agents on the market and he was considering offers from Top Rank and Lou DiBella.

The agreement comes at a very crucial time, as promoter Yvon Michel of GYM is starting a brand new business relationship with Showtime. One of Michel's star fighters, WBC champion Adonis Stevenson, will make his Showtime debut on May 24th.

The signing of Pascal may certainly affect the immediate future of WBO champion Sergey Kovalev, who recently signed a multi-fight deal with HBO but finds himself with very few options that are lucrative. The other three champions - Stevenson, Beibut Shumenov and Bernard Hopkins are fighting on Showtime.

[QUOTE=Pound4PoundStud]According to you armchair experts here, Adonis is "ducking" Kovalev but the bottom line is this, fighters go where ever they feel they can get the most money. Adonis will simply make more money with Al Haymon and Showtime rather than being an HBO fighter. The tide is tu...

Doesn't really matter what Showtime does as they don't have Kovalev. Who ever comes out of Showtime in a year, after Hopkins retires, is going to be looking like a paper tiger without a Kovalev match.

It's a smart move on his part since he's not managed by Al Haymon, he can still fight on HBO & Showtime, two networks he's been apart of. I just hope he doesn't go with Lucien Bute rematch right away, that would be terrible. I suspect a double-header is possible with Jürgen Brähmer defending h...
