You’ll be shocked to hear this but there were some serious shenanigans during a boxing match that had nothing to do with the actual fight itself. First, let’s get this out of the way. Sergey Kovalev beat Jean Pascal to a bloody pulp in Montreal Saturday night and retained his unified WBO, IBF, WBA Light Heavyweight title. It got so bad and so brutal in the 7th round that Pascal’s trainer, Freddie Roach, had to throw in the towel. Kovalev improved to 29-0-1 with the victory, 26 of which have come by KO. He is a very good boxer. He is a very dangerous man. There’s a reason he was named Ring’s Fighter of the Year in 2014.
Here’s just one of the more devastating punches he landed on Pascal.
