Pascal vs Cloud Clash: Interest Expressed, Talks Begin

By Chris LaBate

According to overseas reports, promoter Yvon Michel of GYM has reached out to the IBF, and HBO, to discuss a possible fight between Jean Pascal (26-2, 16KOs) and IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud (22-0, 18KOs), who defends his belt against Yusaf Mack on June 25. Pascal would return from his title losing effort in the recent rematch with Bernard Hopkins. If Hopkins' mandatory fall clash with Chad Dawson ends up in Montreal, don't be surprised if Pascal-Cloud takes place on the same card as the co-feature.

How could HBO afford to have the top 4 LHW's on the same card? Yvon Michel, Don King, Golden Boy, and Gary Shaw all on the same billing? I could see two cards maybe a month or two apart -…

[QUOTE=Iceta Lives;10623456]This fight is pretty good I suppose. But the thing is if Cloud beats Pascal his stock isn't gonna go up that much because he is already doing something that was already done arguably twice by a 47 year…
