Miranda Wants Pascal To Put His Money Where His Mouth Is
HOLLYWOOD, FL, November 5 – Following his impressive fifth round stoppage of veteran Henry Porras on October 30th, super middleweight contender Edison Miranda silenced any critics who questioned whether he would still be the same fighter at 168 pounds that he was at 160. One person he didn’t silence was fellow contender Jean Pascal, who made a spectacle out of himself in calling out Miranda from ringside and in the ring after the bout..

“He’s got a lot of mouth,” said Miranda, now 29-2 with 25 KOs. “I’d like to see if he’s got the heart to match…but I doubt it.”
The unbeaten Pascal, who is ranked second in the world by the WBO and fourth by the WBC, would be an intriguing match for ‘Pantera’, who would love to physically take the Haitian-born Canadian’s rankings from him in the ring
“Pascal was doing a lot of laughing on Tuesday. He will be crying, not laughing the next time I see him in a ring.”
Pantera returned to Puerto Rico on Wednesday to watch WBO's Tournament of Champions at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico. To his surprise Jean Pascal was also in the audience.
“I hear someone talking loud and there is Jean running his mouth. I was surprised to see this clown actually followed me back to Puerto Rico.”
The talking quickly turned ugly and both fighters tore off their shirts and got into each other’s face. Pantera had to be taken away by his people as the entire 5,000 people in the crowd chanted ‘PANTERA’.
“He is crazy to want to fight me. If this fight ever happen I will wipe that grin off his face with one right hand. Go back to Canada Jean and make the fight worth while.”
