Stevenson vs Cloud: Jean Pascal, Eleider Alvarez possible to return on undercard

USA TODAY Sports

GYM looking to stack card with former light heavyweight champ and rising prospect.

Jean Pascal and Eleider Alvarez may be part of the September 28 undercard at the Bell Centre in Montreal, beneath the main event that evening pitting WBC light heavyweight champ Adonis Stevenson against Tavoris Cloud. HBO will televise that fight.

Pascal (27-2-1, 16 KO) last fought on December 14, 2012, beating Aleksy Kuziemski with relative ease, but also suffering a shoulder injury in what was his first fight since losing the 175-pound crown to Bernard Hopkins in May 2011. The 30-year-old Pascal has mostly attended events and worn cool sunglasses since the loss to B-Hop, but he was slated to face Lucian Bute in May of this year before Bute pulled out of that fight with an injury. Bute-Pascal is now tentatively set for January 18, 2014, and promoter Yvon Michel would like to have Pascal shake off some ring rust; Pascal, of course, would like to do that, too.

If Pascal is fit and healthy to fight on September 28, it sounds like he will. As for Alvarez (12-0, 8 KO), he's an exciting fighter on the rise, a native Colombian based in Montreal. At 29, he's a potential player in the light heavyweight division sooner than later. He's got power, he's got skills, and he's fun to watch so far. We're certainly a ways off from him showing real contender potential, but he's marched through decent competition thus far, including Shawn Hawk, Nicholson Poulard, Danny McIntosh, and Rayco Saunders.
