If Friday's fights were any indicator, Pascal will most likely be destroyed by Miranda. For being an ex-Olympian, the guy just fights sloppy, like a bargain basement Roy Jones Jr. It's really aggravating to watch, and I'm glad he paid for it tonight against such an average puncher. He tries to do any of that crap against Miranda and he will get his head knocked off. Miranda, on the other hand, started slow but showed that his power carried up to 168. If the Miranda/Pascal fight doesn't come off (and it wouldn't surprise me at all) I'd love to see Miranda face either Librado Andrade or Jeff Lacy in a real meaningful fight, or him square off against Sakio Bika in what would probably be the ungainliest, yet most wildly entertaining brawl since perhaps the Gatti/Ward trilogy.
However, when Joe Calzaghe does eventually leave the division, any road to being considered the true champ goes through Mikkel Kessler, who would annihilate Miranda, Lacy, and Bute, and has already destroyed Andrade and Anthony Mundine. 168 is gonna be fun to watch nonetheless.
