Plans are underway for a March rematch between current WBC light-heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (31-2 17KO) and Jean Pascal (26-2-1 16KO). “There is an agreement with HBO and Chad Dawson to fight with Jean in March,” said promoter Yvon Michel (GYM). We don’t have an exact date because a lot will depend on the date with a potential rematch with Lucian Bute and Carl Froch. The location and the date will depend on it.”

The story first reported last week by Vincent Morin of Journal du Montreal last week is one that Michel would like to keep on the back burner for the time being with Pascal coming off over a year-and-a-half layoff and facing Aleksy Kuziemski (23-4 7KO) December 14th. “Jean’s next fight is very very important, he needs to win and win convincingly to show he is the star of the light-heavyweight division,” said Michel. “We have a lot of time. It is my job to see to long term planning for the fighters; I’m happy that HBO, Gary Shaw and Chad Dawson all stepped and agreed that the best challenge, the best move in the light-heavyweight division would be a fight between Jean Pascal and Chad Dawson.”
