By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - The Montrealer light heavyweight (175 pounds) Jean Pascal suffered his seventh loss Thursday evening at Place Laval, losing by unanimous decision in 10 rounds against the German Michael Effert.

Effert (12-1-0) used this excellent technique to dominate the Montrealer in almost every rounds. “I got the feeling that Pascal would be more aggressive than me, but it did not happen in this fight”, said Effert after the bout. “I dominated clearly eight of the 10 rounds of the bout. I am younger than Pascal. I think that this situation played for me. Before the bout I was extremely confident to win.”

The judge Martin Forest scored the bout 117-111, Tony Paocillo 115-113 and Pascale Procopio 118-110, all for Effert.

Pascal (36-7-1) is 40 years old.

The promoter Yvon Michel said: “Jean is very disappointed of the result, but I am sure that he did his best in the circumstances. The fact that he is 40 years old, did not help him.”

Effert said after the fight: “I really want to fight for a world title. I am sure that my promoter will work to help me.”

Before the fight, Pascal was ranked third contender by the IBF, and Effert fifth contender.

In the preliminaries fights of the evening, the Montrealer lightweight (135 pounds) Mathieu Germain improved his pro record to 22-2-1, beating the Ontarian Wilcox Hamilton (24-4-1) by unanimous decision in an IBF Inter-Continental championship.
