Pascal (36-6-1, 20 KOs) caught his most memorable world title in 2009 when he crushed Adrian Diaconu for the WBC title. He participated in three defenses, including a 2010 stoppage victory over Chad Dawson. The following year, Pascal lost to Bernard Hopkins for the title, but he continued to be a force in the division by winning matches against Lucian Bute, Yunieski Gonzalez, Marcus Browne, Badou Jack, and Sergey Kovalev, Eleider Alvarez, and Dmitry Bivol. The 40-year-old is coming off a decision win over Fanlong Meng, who had never lost a fight before. Eifert made his debut in 2018 and went 11-1 with 4 knockouts. In 2020, he lost by majority decision to Tom Dzemski. Since that one defeat, he has gone 5-0, including a decision victory over Dzemski in their rematch in July 2021.
