Pascal: This Will Be Bute's Last Fight, I Might Retire Him!

Text by Edward Chaykovsky, Interview by Chris Robinson

Former WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (28-2-1, 18KOs) is predicting a dominating victory that will send his Canadian rival, Lucian Bute (31-1, 24KOs), into retirement. The two Canadian stars are scheduled to collide on January 18th at the Bell Centre in Montreal. HBO will televise the contest. They were set to fight last year, but Bute withdrew with an injury a few weeks before the contest. As the fight draws near, Pascal expects everything to come off planned.

"Now we are about three weeks from the fight, so I'm crossing my fingers that Bute don't get injured. Last time, we were about three weeks from the fight before he pulled out. I really think the fight is going to happen, because if he pulls out again he will lose credibility. He has $2 million good reasons to make the fight happen. It will be a good paycheck for him. Plus its going to be his last fight and its good to cash in before his last fight, because I might retire Lucian Bute," Pascal said.

[QUOTE=trufightfanatic;14095858]Both of these guys are waaaaaaaaaaaay overrated. My prediction is Paschal will fight dumb wild and reckless and get himself ko'd.[/QUOTE] Pascal has never been stopped. Bute has been KO'd twice (once officially). Pascal has been more active, I like…

Bute is decent. No chin tho so if Pascal can land big than its gunna be lights out again for him
