The 27-year-old Bivol cruised to victory in the third defense of his title as he won almost every round against the heavy underdog Pascal. Two judges scored it 119-109 and the other had it 117-111 in favor of Bivol.

Bivol landed a hard right hand in the fourth round to the side of Pascal's head which wobbled the challenger. Bivol kept up the attack throughout and landed a total of 217 punches to just 60 for Pascal.

He had Pascal backpedaling through most of the fight and the only thing he didn't do was get the knockout.

"Every time you shoot for the knockout but sometimes you can't. But I showed my boxing skills," said Bivol who improved to 15-0 with 11 KOs.

The 36-year-old Pascal has been in the ring with some of the best in his 13-year boxing career.

But he looked rusty in his first serious fight since losing a decision to Eleider Alvarez in June 2017.

Pascal is done, all the wars have taken their toll. It’s a consequence of fighting all the good fighters in his weight class. He should retire and ride off into the sunset.

Since he didn't get a KO win, he lost.

Comment by MulaKO on 11-25-2018

Imo Bivol did more than enough to solidify the win But I do feel like he held off on trying to get Pascal out of their I think he was scared of getting tagged and maybe even dropped Cause of…
