Notes

Carl Froch vs. Jean Pascal (poster).jpg
  • 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. Froch took over in the second half of the fight to claim a wide decision in an entertaining fight.
