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.

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.
