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 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...
