Pascal vs Cloud Being Roadblocked By Options Demand

By Rick Reeno

According to sources with knowledge of the negotiations, a proposed fight between Jean Pascal, and IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud, is being roadblocked because Cloud's promoter, Don King, is demanding options on Pascal. The former WBC light heavyweight champion is currently in Las Vegas and plans to sit ringside as WBA champion Beibut Shumenov defends his title against Danny Santiago at the South Point Hotel and Casino.

Pascal, who might return on December 17, would not confirm whether or not King was requesting future options, but he did indicate that negotiations to make the fight were difficult.

"I'll fight anyone. I don't care. But Cloud I think is with the wrong promoter. Everything is always difficult when dealing with Don King," Cloud said to BoxingScene.com.

Pascal is basically a B level fighter who got the break of his life in that fluke win over Dawson -- has made a ton of $$$ of it, mostly against ancient BHop

Damn this fight needs to happen and I hope it somehow gets worked out. People have been very quick to discount and disrespect Pascal but he's been in some really good fights. He had a war with Froch, took Dawson's…
