On a quest for worldwide pound-for-pound recognition, Russia’s Dmitry Bivol (14-0, 11 KOs), 27, looks to continue his dominance in the talent-rich light heavyweight division. With decades of experience, 36-year-old Jean Pascal (33-5-1, 20 KOs) of Laval, Quebec is out to spoil Bivol’s plans and insert himself back into the conversation in the 175-pound weight class.

Bivol will be profiled in the HBO Sports feature “2 Days: Dmitry Bivol,” now streaming on HBO NOW & HBO GO.

Opening HBO’s 83rd boxing telecast from Atlantic City is a 10-round super bantamweight bout. Making his American TV debut, Murodjon Akhmadaliev (4-0, 3 KOs), 24, originally from Uzbekistan and now fighting out of Brooklyn, is a 2016 Olympic bronze medalist and accomplished amateur fighter who hopes to make a statement in the division. Isaac Zarate (16-3-3, 2 KOs), 27, of San Pedro, Calif. is hot off an upset split decision victory over Horatio Garcia and seeks to continue his rise.

Is Roy still training Pascal for this fight?

Comment by robbyheartbaby on 11-23-2018

My heart says Pascal but if prime Kovalev can destroy Pascal I assume Bivol can. Hoping for Pascal to win but expect a late round stoppage to Bivol.
