Jean Pascal vs George Blades on September 28th in Montreal, Canada

By Allan Fox: The ring rusty Jean Pascal (27-2-1, 16 KO’s) has decided to slip in what should be an easy tune-up fight against 39-year-old journeyman George Blades (23-4, 16 KO’s) in a scheduled 10 round bout on the undercard of the Adonis Stevenson vs. Tavoris Cloud card on September 28th at the Bell Centre, in Montreal, Canada.

The Stevenson-Cloud, as good as it is, needed a decent co-feature bout to help attract interest from the Canadian boxing fans. While the Pascal-Blades fight is far from being a decent fight, Pascal’s name alone should be more than enough to attract a ton of Canadian fans to this event.

Pascal is already scheduled to face Lucian Bute on January 18th at the Bell Centre, but Pascal wanted to get a fight in before then to stay busy. Bute and Pascal were already supposed to have fought each other on May 25th, but Bute suffered a hand injury causing the fight to be postponed. Pascal has only fought once in the past 2 years, so it was important for him to get in another fight to keep the ring rust off.
