Jean Pascal fails another drug test!
Things have gone from bad to worse for former light heavyweight champion and current WBA regular light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (35-6-1, 20KOs). As we reported a few days ago, the Canadian fighter tested positive for three different banned substances. All were anabolic steroids, which included Drostanolone, Drostanolone metabolite and Epitrenbolone.
He was originally on track to face former two-division world champion Badu Jack (23-3-3, 13KOs) in a rematch from their December 2019 bout, a fight that Pascal won by split decision.
FOURTH FAILED DRUG TEST!
This most recent failed test revealed the usage of erythropoietin. The 38 year-old, seemingly on the last legs of his career, may have effectively ended his career. While he has won his last two fights, these four failed drug tests are a major major setback. They will most likely render severe repercussions. It will be interesting to see what happens as this story continues to play out. 3kingsboxing.com will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.
