Pascal vs Gonzalez July 25th HBO

Main Events, InterBox and Jean Pascal Promotions are proud to announce Jean Pascal (29-3-1, 17 KOs) will face Yunieski Gonzalez (16-0, 12 KOs) in the ten-round co-feature of the Kovalev-Mohammedi Unified Light Heavyweight World Championship fight on July 25 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. Both fights will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing® beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Jean Pascal is coming off a TKO lost to Sergey Kovalev, back in March 2014. “I'm eager to get back in the ring,” said Pascal. “The years where I have been very active are the ones that I've performed the best. Gonzalez is a good fighter and everybody knows I am not content with fighting just a regular fighter. I'm already back in the gym and focusing on July 25.”

Yunieski Gonzalez, from Cuba, has a stellar 75% knockout-to-win ratio coming off seven straight knockouts. “This is the fight I have been waiting for,” said a confident Gonzalez. “I’m not punching at him, I’m punching through him and when I’m done with him he won’t be any good for anyone else.”
