Jean Pascal To Lucian Bute: I'm The Boss of Montreal!

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com recently caught up with former light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (27-2-1, 16KOs) to talk about his upcoming fight against  former super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (31-1, 24KOs). Although both fighters were born in different countries, Montreal, Quebec serves as the home base for both men who consistently draw big crowds in the Canadian province. Pascal said he was very excited to finally be able to meet his rival in the ring. 

"This is going to be a nice fight. It's been like five years that I've been chasing Lucian Bute. I've been chasing him for the fans, not for me, because we can have two champions in town but we can only have one boss and I'm the boss. I am going to show the fans that I'm the man in my town," Pascal told BoxingScene.

The fight takes place on May 25th at the Bell Centre and will be televised by HBO. Even though the fight is still over a month out, it is nearly sold out.

Pascal said that the fight, which many consider to be the biggest in Canadian boxing history, already has the city buzzing.  He recognizes the importance of the fight and is confident that he will leave the ring with his hand raised as the winner.

"It's crazy. The town is on fire. For us (Canadians) its like Mayweather-Pacquiao. It's like the Super Bowl.  The fight is crazy. It's going to be the biggest fight in Canadian boxing history and I'm going to win big as well," Pascal confidently stated.

I hope Pascal wins. Hopefully he learned some things from the B-Hop fights & will pace himself a little better instead of loading up on every punch, save some of that mustard for when it's needed.

I think Pascal will win and I hope he does. Im not interested in seeing Froch demolish Bute again but would love to see another Froch/Pascal fight since the 1st was toe to toe

If the 'right' Bute shows up, he will take Pascal out with body shots mid rounds. If Bute is permanently spooked by the Froch loss, this will not be a good night for him. I hope he wins, but I…

Both need a win really bad. If Bute loses this after having a bad fight with Froch and another horrible fight afterwards in which he pulled out a victory, he may be calling it a career. Who ever can oppose…
