It didn't take long for Jean Pascal to make easy work of George Blades in Montreal on Saturday night. In fact, you could probably say the Canadian light-heavyweight's pre-fight hairstyle took longer to cut.
Pascal (28-2-1,17 KOs) was impressive — but it was his haircut, not his uppercut, that attracted attention all of the fans in attendance.
Fans were aware that this fifth-round knockout of Blades warm-up for his upcoming domestic fight with Lucian Bute next year. But when they looked closely at the former world champion’s haircut, it appeared that he wasn't only looking ahead but behind him as well.
And you could say they were right because Pascal had shaved an image of his own face into the hair on his head.
Pascal, whose only career defeats came against Bernard Hopkins and Britain’s Carl Froch, was fighting for the first time since last December.
And in truth, his victory over the American was little more than a glorified sparring session after Blades was dropped three times in what proved to be the final session before the referee waved the contest off.
