Pascal: Torn Left Bicep, Shoulder Muscle, But No Surgery

by David P. Greisman

Jean Pascal will not need surgery on the injuries he suffered last week during a 10-round unanimous decision win over Aleksy Kuziemski, according to a post the former light heavyweight champion sent via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

“I had a complete tear of the tendon of the left bicep and a tear of of one of my muscle[s] in the left shoulder. Good news don’t need to operate,” he wrote.

Pascal appeared to suffer the injuries in round four of last week’s bout, but went on to score the win with just one good arm, according to a fight report by BoxingScene’s own Cliff Rold.

The win brought Pascal to 27-2-1 with 16 knockouts, giving him a victory in his first appearance back in the ring since a May 2011 loss to Bernard Hopkins. He was supposed to have faced Tavoris Cloud this past August, but he had to pull out of that fight after suffering an injury.

Pascal is supposed to have a rematch with Chad Dawson on March 23, according to what Dawson’s promoter, Gary Shaw, told BoxingScene.com last month.

On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that Pascal’s injuries are not expected to keep him from that second Dawson fight.

I don't understand why Pascal gets hated on so much. He always comes to fight, is entertaining inside and outside the ring!LOL Sure he has glaring weaknesses, but to me that is all part of the fun.
