Stick a fork in Lucian Bute… he’s done

Applying his busy, swarming style to its best effect, Jean Pascal won a commanding points victory over crosstown rival Lucian Bute this weekend. But in my mind it wasn't Pascal's punches in bunches energy that stood out, but Bute's relative passivity. He was effectively shut down for most of the fight, rarely letting his hands go with any degree of what had previously been La Tombeur...

Pascal beats Bute by unanimous decision in battle of Canadian stars

Jean Pascal dominated an unusually tentative Lucian Bute to win the battle of former world champions by unanimous decision before 20,479 at the Bell Centre on Saturday night. The decidedly pro-Bute crowd could do little to help their fighter, who appeared more concerned with not getting hit than with launching attacks. One judge had it 117-110, another 117-111 and the third 116...

Jean Pascal Untroubled By Vacant Lucian Bute

It would be wrong in a couple different ways to say that Jean Pascal beat Lucian Bute on HBO Saturday. He got the victory, certainly. But Bute practically handed the win to him, save for one final 12th round flurry, so the active verb of "beat" doesn't really apply. And Pascal beat a version of Bute that was nothing like the man who once was the body punch KO king of Canada, so Pascal...

Popping Everywhere: Lucian Bute Vs. Jean Pascal Preview And Prediction

You know, call me immature, but I get a lot of enjoyment out of hearing a 20,000 strong Montreal crowd chant “Bute, Bute.” I might even tune in to premium cable just for that. Thankfully, though, that won’t be the only attraction when light heavyweights Lucian Bute and Jean Pascal do battle in Montreal on Saturday night. Bute and Pascal are superstars in Canada (or at least...

TQBR Radio 1/14: Jean Pascal Vs. Lucian Bute Preview

(Lucian Bute, left, and Jean Pascal, probably just moments before asking the TQBR Radio team to TAKE THE TEST! FOR THE FANS!; photo credit: Herby Whyne) The sting of a lack of boxing action on television is something that's become unfamiliar to us boxing fans. We've become soft -- spoiled, even. But the good stuff is just right around the bend, and we'll be past this frozen tundra...
