Photos: Dmitry Bivol Has Tougher Than Expected Win Over Pascal

While the HBO World Championship Boxing era ended, the Dmitry Bivol era continued on Saturday night at  the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.  Bivol (15-0, 11 KOs), from St. Petersburg, Russia, headlining his first HBO telecast, extended his reign as World Boxing Association (WBA) light heavyweight world champion with a blitzing of former world champion Jean Pascal (33-6-1, 20 KOs),who hails from the Montréal suburb Laval, Québec, Canada. (photos by Ed Mulholland).

Managed by Vadim Kornilov and promoted by World of Boxing, it is onward and upward for Bivol, arguably the best light heavyweight in the world, who eschewed more lucrative offers from other networks for the honor of headlining the finale of HBO's 45-year flagship boxing series.

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.

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…
