By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - According the Badou Jack’s team, the Montrealer Jean Pascal has been found positive for three drug’s tests in the last days in Montréal. Pascal was supposed to fight the French African Badou Jack June 6th at the Hard Rock Arena in Miami in a WBA light heavyweight (175 pounds) championship of the world, but the event is now in serious danger.

“My team is looking for another opponent actually,” said Badou Jack Saturday morning. “I am expecting to fight June 6th, but I am positive that Pascal won’t be my next opponent. I have been informed that Pascal failed three drug’s test.”

It was supposed to be e rematch.
December 28th 2019 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Pascal (35-6-1) beat Badou Jack (22-2-3) by split decision of the judges. Both fighters thought that a rematch was logical in the circumstances.

Showtime will televise the June 6th boxing show organized by Mayweather Promotions organization.
