The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of boxer Jean Pascal. It is learned that he tested positive for the three banned substances and withdrew his fight against Badou Jack.
Badou Jack announced the news on his social networks at 9pm.
“My fight was stopped because he (Pascal) tested positive for three different steroids,” he wrote. We had doubts that he was not clean in our first fight.
“Tests by Wada (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association) confirmed it this time. I will fight anyway on June 6. My team is looking for a new opponent.”
This message had the effect of wildfires and was taken from all specialized sites in Canada and the United States.
American journalist Kevin Aiol reveals three substances that are positive for Pascal: epitrenbolone, drostanolone and drostanolone metabolite.
Mayweather, the promoter of the Pascal-Jack II clash, made no official announcement ahead of the promotions.
The Journal Pascal (35-6-1, 20 KOs), tried to reach out to his coach Stefan Lauro and his manager Greg Lyon. However, they did not return our messages.

If the news is confirmed in the coming hours, it will be a blow to Pascal’s career. Will it be the end of 38-year-old athlete performances?
Too early to tell. However, there is no doubt the substances found in his body. He is trying to gain an unfair advantage in his second duel against Jack.
Throughout his career, Pascal has frequently denied doping cases in his sport. His most recent intervention was on Russian Sergei Kovelev, whom he confronted twice.
We also remember how he ran over Bernard Hopkins in a second confrontation between two people in 2011.
Not for the first time
This is not the first time Jack has seen a Quebec opponent test before or after a fight against him.
In 2016, just weeks after the draw against Lucian Butte, Jack learned that the former super middleweight had tested positive for world champion Asterine. It was one of the assistants of the physical trainer Angel Herredia, who gave him a product contaminated by this substance.
However, thanks to numerous tests and good representation, a few years later the Washington Athletic Commission cleared Butt of its doping allegations.
