Lucian Bute: Pascal Fight Could Become One-Sided

By Edward Chaykovsky

Lucian Bute (31-1, 24KOs) feels very confident as his training camp continues for the all-Canadian battle with fellow former champion Jean Pascal (28-2-1, 17KOs). Bute moves up to the light heavyweight division to face Pascal for the NABF title on January 18th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

Bute will be coming off a decent layoff, with an inactivity stretch that dates back to November of 2012. But he feels that his high punch output may end up overwhelming Pascal in the fight.

"I feel that if I'm entering the ring and I'm focused and relaxed, then it will be a one-sided fight. I will control my every move, I know that if I am fluid, if I let the hands go ...Jean is a guy who boxes for a minute and a half, two minutes per round, nothing more than that. He will not be able to keep up with me," said Bute to La Presse.

Pascal needs to come with his war face on, pressure this guy from the start and keep it going like Froch did. If he doesn't do that but stands off early and lets Bute find a rhythm, it'll be hard…

Will Bute's power carry up to 175? Will his chin withstand the bombs of a true light heavyweight? Those are the questions I have going into this fight. Looking forward to seeing them answered one way or another come January…

50/50 fight IMO. Pascal has terrible stamina and Bute is chinny.

I say Pascal by KO.
