Jean Pascal is set to face Germany’s Michael Eifert for the IBF world title eliminator, in the light heavyweight division, on February 9th, 2023, at the Place Bell in Laval, Quebec, Canada. The bout promoted by DiBella Entertainment, Groupe Yvon Michel and Jean Pascal Promotions, in association with Blanko Sports and SES Sports Events, will see Pascal, look to try and earn another chance to fight for a world title, this time against IBF light heavyweight champion, Artur Beterbiev.

"There is a lot of fight left in Jean Pascal, one of Canada’s all-time great fighters. He will prove that on February 9 against Michael Eifert, and secure yet another title shot in his illustrious career.”
