Marcus Browne will defend his light heavyweight interim title of the World Boxing Association (WBA) against Jean Pascal this Saturday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Browne and Pascal will rise to the ring in a battle of two warriors seeking glory. For Browne, it will be the first exhibition of the belt he obtained in January by defeating the Swedish native Badou Jack via unanimous decision. At 28 years old, he wants to establish himself as an elite fighter in the division and will have the opportunity to achieve just that against a veteran such as the Canadian.
For his part, Pascal is coming off a defeat at the hands of Dmitry Bivol in his last fight but he is certain that he can still compete for a World Title and intends to prove it in The Big Apple.
This Friday, the two fighters will go up to the ring to mark the regulatory weight and once they comply with the scales they will be ready to fight for the black and gold belt.
Browne is undefeated in his career with a record of 23 wins, no losses, and 16 knockouts. For his part Pascal has a balance of 33 wins, 6 losses, 1 draw, and 29 wins via knockout.
