Main Event Preview
At 40 years old, one can wonder how many more title opportunities Pascal (36-6-1, 20 KO) has left. Of course, there’s a chance right in front of him on Thursday night in the form of 25-year-old Michael Eifert (11-1-0, 4 KO). A test of age vs youth, experience vs moxie – that is the matchup when two meet in the ring.
For Pascal, he’s been at this stage and he’s been successful. He’s also tasted defeat, multiple times, most recently to the likes of Dmitry Bivol and Sergey Kovalev. Though he was stripped of his last title for a failed drug test, the Canadian collected a win in his return in 2022. His 12-round decision helped him to retain his sixth-place ranking worldwide at 175 pounds and puts him opposite Eifert.
Eifert has stacked together some impressive wins in his five-year professional career out of Germany. The first real test that he faced was Tom Dzemski in 2020 for the vacant IBF youth light heavyweight title. He fell on the losing end of a mixed decision in that one but he came back strong in 2021. Eifert won his bid for the WBO youth title before a rematch with Dezemski earned him the WBC and IBF youth belts. “Diesel” is all primed up for a title push, and that means getting through Pascal.
