“Boxing is boxing… I dropped him three times. It was a close fight, but I believe I was winning.” Jean Pascal, following his technical decision win over Marcus Browne
Brooklyn, NY – Two weeks ago in Las Vegas the world watched in amazement as a forty-year-old former world champion bested an undefeated fighter ten years younger than the grizzled former champion. On Saturday night at the beautiful Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, another former champion defied the odds in dethroning a previously unbeaten, younger champion. Perhaps inspired by the performance of the fighting Senator, Manny Pacquiao in defeating Keith Thurman on July 20th in Las Vegas, 36-year-old former light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal was able to wrest the WBA interim and “silver” WBC belts from Marcus Browne, as he dropped the 28-year-old former champion from Staten Island, three times en route to a bizarre, yet thrilling upset.

Saturday’s co-main event of the PBC on FOX broadcast began with Brown boxing beautifully and controlling most of the Real-estate, appearing at times to be well on his way to cruising toward a wide decision victory, and possibly even a stoppage, as Pascal looked alternately frustrated, unsteady on his feet, gunshy and confused, as he was also seen resorting to some questionable tactics and was guilty of fighting dirty at times.
However, this all changed with one punch in the 4th Round.
The seismic change in the fight occurred when Pascal launched a ridiculously ambitious hybrid right-hand hook/uppercut -mind you, while simultaneously being caught flush with a right hook from Brown a millisecond before Pascal’s missive landed- that floored Brown, hard. The champion got up, seemingly on still unsteady legs but would eventually regain his bearings to close out the round back in control of his faculties.
