Jean Pascal: Congratulations to Carl Froch
Jean Pascal has released a statement congratulating Carl Froch on his epic win at the weekend over countryman Lucian Bute.
The former WBC light-heavyweight champion knows all too well what it's like to travel as an then-unbeaten fighter into Nottingham to face their local hero.
"Congratulations to Froch on the IBF World Title. The fight was very intense and interesting at the same time." said Jean Pascal in an open statement to the boxing media.
"I was torn between the two fighters because I'm connected to both of them; one from my home town and the other is a good friend of mine. I knew it was going to be a tough fight because Bute was undefeated and Froch is an impeccable fighter. But it was evident early on who was going to be victorious.
"The sport of boxing is very unpredictable. Unfortunately last night Bute didn't perform his best and I do wish him the best of luck in the future. This fight has definitely motivated me even more to reclaim my belt and to take my position as World Champion again. I appreciate everyone's support and enthusiasm. And remember, I will fight anybody, anytime, anywhere, even if I have to go to Mars to fight a martian." he concluded.
