Pascal vs Erdei: Both Sides Interested, No TV Dates

By Rick Reeno

Promoter Lou DiBella has confirmed to that there have been discussions to stage a light heavyweight fight between former champions Jean Pascal (26-2, 16KOs) and Zsolt Erdei (33-0, 18KOs). DiBella, and Pascal's promoter Yvon Michel, are interested in making the fight, but the availability of American television dates is the biggest problem affecting that match.

"We have discussed the possibility of that fight. We're interested in the fight and I think it's great match. But, Yvon doesn't have a televison date for Pascal [with HBO or Showtime] and that's obviously a problem with making the fight happen this year," DiBella told

Erdei wins a decision. He's too active and too accurate for Pascal and Pascal would not be able to put Erdei away with a single shot.

[QUOTE=ИATAS206;10807986]No Tavoris Cloud vs Pascal!?!?!? :([/QUOTE] I second that, Pascal v Cloud would be brilliant. I'm sure a double header split-feed from St.Louis featuring Paulie Malignaggi v Devon Alexander and Montreal Cloud v Pascal. Cloud needs no judges b/c this…
