Bute-Pascal Showdown Rescheduled To December 7th

The Canadian super-fight between Lucian Bute and Jean Pascal has been rescheduled for December 7th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, according to InterBox. Bute (31-1, 24 KOs) vs. Pascal (27-2-1, 16 KOs) was scheduled to take place on May 25, but Bute withdrew after he injured his left hand and underwent surgery last week. It will take several months for Bute to recover.

"We don't think we'll have to postpone the fight again. We're convinced Lucian will be ready. He always keeps himself in good shape and it's only the boxing side that he won't be able to work on until September, which gives him plenty of time to be ready for a fight in December," said InterBox rep David Messier.

Screw this fight thats too far away. Pascal should have fought someone else. Now both guys are going to be coming in off year layoffs.
