Jean Pascal vs. Michael Eifert date, start time, odds, schedule & card for 2023 boxing fight

Following a recent bout with COVID-19, Jean Pascal is ready for his next big challenge. The former world champion faces Michael Eifert in an IBF light-heavyweight title eliminator bout on March 16. 

Pascal returns home to Canada, fighting inside Place Bell in Quebec. 

A two-time gold medalist as an amateur, Pascal turned pro in 2005 and had a 21-bout unbeaten streak snapped by Carl Froch in 2008. In 2009 he beat Adrian Diaconu for the WBC light-heavyweight title and won the IBO and The Ring belts in 2010. Losing the belts to Bernard Hopkins in 2011, Pascal continued his quest for more gold. After failing to beat Sergey Kovalev and Dmitry Bivol, Pascal beat Marcus Browne for the interim WBA light-heavyweight title (later promoted to “Regular” champion) and retained the belt that year against Badou Jack. 

Pascal returned to action following a failed drug test, beating Meng Fanlong in May 2022. The fight with Eifert was supposed to be on February 9, but the 40-year-old Pascal tested positive for COVID-19. He told the Montreal Gazette the delay in training was a bit hard on his body but he was able to tweak some parts of his game.

“You have to refocus on yourself,” Pascal stated. “You have to focus on what you can control. You can control your surroundings, your training, the way you eat and sleep. I’m already 40. I know what to do in the ring. He (trainer Orlando Cuellar) is just going to fine-tune me … details of my technique to make me a complete fighter.”

Eifert turned pro in 2018. Following a loss against Tom Dzemski in 2020, Eifert has won five in a row, his last bout a unanimous decision win in July against Adriano Sperandio.
