By Luke Furman

A formal announcement is expected shortly for May 25th at Olympic Stadium in Montreal. The match will take place at light heavyweight, with Bute moving up from his career weight of 168-pounds. Promoters InterBox and Groupe Yvon Michel have agreed on all of terms.

An agreement was worked out with WBC light heavyweight Chad Dawson, who was scheduled to face Pascal on the same night.
