The co-main event for the Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather Jr PPV is now off, as Jean Pascal has reportedly failed a drug test for three banned substances.

According to Kevin Iole (HT: Bad Left Hook), Pascal has been pulled from his rematch with Badou Jack after testing positive for three steroids, epitrenbolone, drostanolone, and drostanolone metabolite A.

The first meeting between Pascal and Jack was a barnburner, and this rematch was supposed to be the fight that could appeal to the more avid boxing fan and compliment the huge spectacle in the main event. Jack says he will remain on the card, but it’s doubtful they can find a suitable replacement, especially as this new opponent will have to come in on just a week’s notice.

Showtime’s Mayweather-Paul fight card for June 6 is now as follows:

Exhibition: Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Logan Paul

Light Heavyweight: Badou Jack vs TBA

Junior Middleweight: Jarrett Hurd vs Luis Arias

Exhibition: Chad Johnson vs Brian Maxwell
