According to media reports surfacing out of Canada, Jean Pascal, the WBC light heavyweight champion underwent surgery on Wednesday and will be sidelined for at least 9 weeks. Doctors performed arthroscopic surgery on Pascal's right shoulder.
Pascal had injured his shoulder this past Friday in his fight against Adrian Diaconu. Pascal who won the fight by way of unanimous decision, showed visible signs during the fight that his shoulder was injured.
According to media reports, Doctors performed the surgery to fix the labrum * in his shoulder and also to extract a bone fragment. Pascal promoter tells the media that Pascal will need to rest for 3 weeks, followed by about 6 weeks of rehab.
*According to About.com on the Labral: "The labrum is made of a thick tissue that is susceptible to injury with trauma to the shoulder joint. When a patient sustains a shoulder injury, it is possible that the patient has a labral tear. The labrum also becomes more brittle with age, and can fray and tear as part of the aging process."
