  • The title was vacated by Joe Calzaghe when he moved up in weight to challenge Bernard Hopkins at Light Heavyweight.
  • The two highest ranked challengers by the WBC were Froch and Jermain Taylor. Taylor turned down the chance to fight for the vacant title, preferring instead to accept a fight against ex-IBF Super Middleweight champion Jeff Lacy. Pascal was next in line and accepted the challenge to fight Froch for the vacant title.
  • Fight started off at a fast pace, with both men exchanging blows, however in the second half pascal seem to tire and with adjustments from froch he took control of the fight - to claim an entertaining wide decision
