Bute vs. Pascal: Over 15,000 Tickets Already Sold

By Luke Furman

One thing is for sure, there will be no tickets available when Canadian superstars Lucian Bute (31-1, 24KOs) and Jean Pascal (27-2-1, 16KOs) collide at the Bell Centre in Montreal on May 25th. Bute, one of the top names at super middleweight, is moving up the light heavyweight division to face Pascal. HBO will televise this match in the United States.

"There are 15,000 tickets sold since Thursday. This is excellent and I think we can expect a full house," said InterBox President Jean Bédard to QMI Agency.

Don't rule Bute out so quickly. He's a tricky guy -- even his loss against Froch had some tricks in it. During the Grachev fight, Bute only wanted a 12 rounds sparring with a pressure fighter. Don't rule Bute out.

[QUOTE=kokingbill;13205657]I think Bute got this. Ill take his KO loss to prime Carl Froch any day over the way Pascal looked losing to 47 yr old Hopkins twice. He's been way too inactive after looking so sloppy in those fights.…

Like some others have said, Bute is a great body puncher. So this will probably be interesting, no matter how it goes.

When first announced I was picking Pascal but Pascal hasn't looked too great, too inactive and Bute got them body shots. I might go with Bute by late stoppage. [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android[/I][/SIZE]
