In a battle of Quebec Canadian fighters broadcast live over the internet, Jean Pascal retained his WBC Light Heavyweight title in a rematch with Adrian Diaconu. The first four rounds appeared even. Pascal returned to his corner early with right shoulder troubles, giving him the most trouble in rounds five and ten. It appeared his cutman (Russ Anber) was able to pop the shoulder back in before the start of round 11. Pascal landed alot of flurry combinations throughout this contest, while Diaconu was effective with a left jab which scored consistently at times and managed to pin Pascal on the ropes several times while scoring but failed to capitalize. Pascal won the last round clearly, throwing power punches with the left hand as Diaconu either covered up or grabbed on to survive but rarely punched back. The Canadian Press scored the bout 116-114 for Pascal, the neutral live commentor scored it 115-113 Pascal, The Gazette 115-114, all for Pascal. After the bout, Pascal stated his shoulder had popped out three times, and his corner kept popping it back, beginning at the end of the third round.
