Pascal scaled 174.6lbs, Bivol was 174.4lbs. They will fight for the world title at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic on Saturday (November 24).
In an ill tempered face off, Pascal pressed his head into Bivol’s forehead. The Russian kept his cool, just about, but Pascal is clearly highly motivated. He will however be the underdog. In a competitive division, Bivol, only 14-0, is already a world champion and one of the most impressive boxers in his weight class.
