Jean Pascal has continued to verbally strike at his countryman, WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson. Pascal, the mandatory challenger to the title, feels Stevenson is avoiding the fight. Stevenson is scheduled to return in the fall, likely against either Umberto Savigne or Gabriel Campillo.
Pascal wants Stevenson next. The big issue with making the match is the money. Stevenson refused to give Pascal a 50-50 split. Pascal, who took part in three of the five highest grossing fights [including No. 1 with Bute] in the history of Canadian boxing, feels a 50-50 split is more than fair for both parties.
"Don't cry, just man up [and] accept the fight and I will stop. You don't deserve your nickname. All of the boxing fans must call you from now on - Adonis 'Super Puppet' Stevenson. Haymon's Puppet. If you do got balls....but I doubt it. I know for a fact that Bute got bigger balls than you. You can hide, but I know where to find you," stated Pascal.
