According to promoter Yvon Michel of GYM, the return of former light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (29-2-1, 17KOs) is being targeted for a fall date of September 27th. Pascal was last seen in action on January 18th, when he won a lopsided twelve round unanimous decision over Canadian rival Lucian Bute.
Pascal then became a free agent, started his own promotional company, and then signed a deal to have his fights promoted under his own banner, Michel and InterBox. No word on Pascal's next opponent or whether the fight is heading to HBO or Showtime.
