When Pascal was 4, his mother and older brother left Haiti for a better life and education. They settled in Laval, Quebec, just outside of Montreal. His father, a well-respected politician, remained in Haiti. Pascal played hockey and soccer but fell in love with boxing after watching his older brother, Nicholson Poulard, a former Quebec champion, box.

As a light middleweight, Pascal won the 2002 Commonwealth Games. At the 2003 Pan American Games, Pascal won the bronze medal. In the 2004 Olympic Games Pascal fought at middleweight and lost to Yordanis Despaigne.
Pascal made his professional debut on February 3, 2005, defeating Justin Hahn by second round technical knockout. Pascal won his next 12 fights, before fighting Lucas Green Arias on September 30, 2006, at the Montreal Casino in Montreal. The fight was for the vacant WBC Latino super middleweight title. Pascal sent him to the canvas with a flurry of punches in the sixth round. Arias got up for the final second of the round, but moments later slid off the stool in his corner, vigorously rubbing his head. He was unable to get up for the seventh round, making Pascal the winner. He was given oxygen in the ring and then was taken to the hospital on a stretcher. It was revealed that he suffered a subdural hematoma.
After defeating Christian Cruz by technical knockout in the tenth round, Pascal fought former world title challenger Kingsley Ikeke on August 3, 2007. Pascal dominated Ikeke and won by unanimous decision. Later that year, he defeated Esteban Camou and Brian Norman.
His next fight took place on January 11, 2008 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida against Omar Pittman. Pascal dropped Pittman with a left hook in round two and was in control for the first six rounds, but Pittman managed to hurt Pascal in rounds seven and eight. Pascal came back strong in the last two rounds and won by unanimous decision.
