  Cloutier’s Canada Corner
Pascal vs. Bossé Could Be Postponed

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL— The promoter of the GYM Group, the Montrealer Yvon Michel, could confirmed in the next hours that the fight between the Montrealers Jean Pascal and Steve Bossé, originally scheduled for June 29th at Place Bell in Laval, could be postponed for July 20th.

Apparently, Bossé, a former UFC champion who has only one pro boxing bout (1-0-0), could have his boxing licence renewed only in two weeks by the Québec Athletic Commission (Régie provinciale des sports de combat).

In the circumstances, Yvon Michel believes it would be more careful to postponed the fight for July 20th.

Former WBC light heavyweight (175 pounds) champion of the world, Pascal (32-5-1) announced his retirement last December, few days after his win by TKO against the Egyptian Ahmed Elbiali (17-1-0) in Miami. However, Bossé challenged Pascal publicly in February. Pascal called Yvon Michel right away to tell him that he was ready to get out of his retirement to face Bossé.

Pascal and Bossé, who will be involved in the main event of this boxing show, will fight in the cruiserweight division (190 pounds).
