Injured Pascal manages to outpoint Kuziemski

MONTREAL (AP) Jean Pascal returned from a 19-month layoff to unanimously outpoint Aleksy Kuziemski on Friday night despite fighting the final six rounds with only one hand because of a shoulder injury.

Pascal (27-2-1), the former WBC light heavyweight champion from Montreal, had his left shoulder worked on between rounds and threw only rights in the last six rounds of the 10-round bout. The right-hander still landed power punches in nearly every round against Kuziemski (23-5).

Two judges scored it 98-90 and the other had it 100-88 for Pascal.

Pascal bounced back from a crushing loss to then-45-year-old Bernard Hopkins in May 2011.
