Marcus Browne vs. Jean Pascal

12 rounds, light heavyweights

This fight might steal the show. Pascal is always in exciting battles and Browne has looked very explosive as of late. Marcus Browne is coming of his career best win against Badou Jack where he won a clear unanimous decision in Las Vegas. Browne really has improved a whole lot since the fighter he was when he arguably deserved to lose against Hot rod Radivoje Kaladjic. If they were to rematch now, we believe Browne would win with no controversy. Pascal is never an easy fighter to face. Although he is clearly past his prime, he showed against Dmitry Bivol that he can hang in there for 12 rounds against the best. Bivol looked content to just win the rounds easy and wasn´t willing to take any risks to see if he could get him out of there. The only man to have stopped Pascal is Kovalev and he did it both times.

Pascal understands how to fight southpaws. Pascal has an excellent way of whipping his right hook against lefties and might have instances of success in the fight but ultimately Browne will be too much for him. Marcus Browne is young, sharp and fresh and he holds most of the advantages in this fight. We wouldn´t be surprised given the build up if something crazy happens like a disqualification or early headbutt that causes the fight to be stopped. We see Browne putting on a dominant performance and he is the clear A-side. The Pick is Marcus Browne to win.
