Jean Pascal Dominates, Stops Steve Bosse in The Eight

Former light heavyweight world champion Jean Pascal dominated and stopped Steve Bosse in the eight round, in the main event of a big card at Place Bell in Laval. Around 3,300 fans were estimated in the venue.

Bosse tried to do the best that he could - but Pascal was landing much stronger punches and he was too experienced of a fighter.

After scoring a knockdown in the third, Pascal closed the show in the eight with heavy punches that sent Bosse down for a second time. The referee had seen enough at that point and waved things off.

There are several reports which indicate that Bosse had a tear in his right bicep, which he suffered during training camp. He plans to have surgery on Monday.

Reportedly, he is also complaining of sustaining a broken jaw in the bout.

"I'm disappointed with the result but I'm happy with what I did against a former world champion. My priority was to give a good show and to demonstrate that I was able to stand in front of him. For me, it's mission accomplished," Bosse told media members.

Pascal is planning to continue his career - but the weight class is unknown.

"I want to continue because I have other goals to achieve," said Pascal.

Pascal weighed in at 193-pounds for this bout. It remains to be seen if he'll continue at cruiserweight or drop back to 175.

Last December, Pascal (33-5-1, 20 KOs) pulled off a big upset with the oddsmakers, when he secured an impressive stoppage of previously unbeaten Ahmed Elbiali (16-1, 13 KOs) in the sixth round. The contest was the main event of a Premier Boxing Champions card from the Hialeah Park in Miami, Florida.

Prior to the contest, Pascal stated that his contest with Elbiali was going to be the final bout of his 12-year career.

Bosse made his boxing debut as a heavyweight with a victory over Julio Cuellar Cabrera at the Montreal Casino in February. The 36-year-old from St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, Que., played six seasons of professional hockey in the 2000s in a Quebec league that encouraged fighting. He then turned to MMA.

Bosse was 12-2 as a MMA fighter, winning two of three bouts in the UFC. He last fought in the UFC in June 2016, earning a unanimous decision over Sean O'Connell.

He retired, then he came back after a few months. Getting punched at an old age to turn into a human larva later on is becoming more frequent than heroin addiction.

I think Pascal should have retired when he lost to Colombian Eleider Álvarez the WBC Silver light heavyweight Champ. But I guess there is money to be made in Canada?

Its good Pascal is on a winning thrill. Pascal vs Sullivan Barrera will be exciting to watch.
