Original foe Jean Pascal failed a drug test late last week.

Multiple sources report that after losing original foe Jean Pascal to a failed drug test, former two-division champion Badou Jack will face unbeaten Venezuelan Dervin Colina in the June 6th Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul co-main event.

The 33-year-old Colina (15-0, 13 KO) sits at #13 in the WBA’s super middleweight rankings despite spending his seven-year career fighting limited opposition in his home country. You can find some relatively recent footage of him on the WBA’s official YouTube page right here.

Even with his advancing age and spotty recent record, Jack (23-3-3, 13 KO) figures to be a prohibitive favorite, having smashed another unknown fighter with an empty record in Blake McKernan this past November. At least it keeps him busy; he hasn’t fought more than twice a year since 2014 and the clock is definitely ticking. Personally, I’m just interested in whether the betting line will be more lopsided than Jarrett Hurd vs. Luis Arias.
