The WBC set its priorities straight during the last Annual Convention in Las Vegas. One of them being to try to make sure that the best fights are made. Kovalev has expressed publicly many times his dream to capture the WBC green and gold belt. While Pascal has been a proud plus loyal WBC Champion and is the mandatory challenger of the division.
The WBC participated and voted in favor of sanctioning the Kovalev vs. Pascal fight as a final elimination bout, as well as to have a Diamond championship belt to celebrate this great contest. And the winner will fight the WBC’s formidable light heavyweight Champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson.
The WBC wishes the best of luck to both fighters and congratulates Main Events and Interbox for creating this fabulous fight.
