Photos: Jean Pascal Ends Career With Shock Stoppage of Elbiali

MIAMI - Former light heavyweight world champion Jean Pascal (32-5-1, 19 KOs) scored an impressive stoppage of previously unbeaten Ahmed Elbiali (16-1, 13 KOs) in the sixth round of the main event of a special Friday night edition of Premier Boxing Champions TOE-TO-TOE TUESDAYS on FS1 and BOXEO DE CAMPEONES on FOX Deportes at Hialeah Park in Miami, Florida.

Having already stated that this bout would be the final of his 12-year career, Pascal was able to wear down his younger opponent in a fight that featured power punches throughout. Elibali appeared to have Pascal stunned and hurt in the opening moments of the first round, but was unable to capitalize as Pascal began to time his powerful counters.

"It was a beautiful fight," said Pascal. "I knew it would be my last one and I wanted to make a statement against a young, unbeaten fighter. It went basically as I expected, a couple of difficult moments but I was able to do everything I wanted."

Elbiali stuck to his strategy of walking down Pascal with power shots, but exhausted too much energy in doing so while not being able to seriously hurt his opponent. Pascal's counters grew stronger as the fight went on and Elbiali lost steam on his punches as he entered the sixth round for only the fourth time in his pro career.

After an impressive round five, Pascal poured on the attack in round six, landing numerous unanswered hooks before Elbiali's corner called for a stop to the fight at 2:06 into the round.

"I fought his fight, I should have boxed more and taken him into the later rounds," said Elbiali. "It wasn't my day. He is a world class fighter. I felt like I hurt him in the first round, but I felt drained after that. I'm not sure why, it might have been the nerves. But I'll learn from this."

I was thinking, why Florida, for Pascal's retirement match? Then it hit me, the Roy Jones connection.
