Jean Pascal and Lucian Bute are prepared to step to the scale for the official weigh-in to their 12-round main event Saturday evening in Montreal, Canada. The light heavyweight bout will air live on HBO, marking the network's first boxing telecast of 2014.

Bute (31-1, 24KO) was given a hero's welcome as he made his way to the stage for Friday's weigh-in. The former super middleweight titlist looked a bit tight, but was lean and ready at 173.6 lb for his first fight in more than a year.

The Romanian-Canadian was clearly the crowd favorite, as chants of "Bu-té" rang through the room. Pascal's entrance came in stark contrast, lustily booed by the boisterous patrons on hand to take in Friday's festivities. 

Pascal (28-2-1, 17KO) hit the scales at a deeply ripped 175 lb. The Haitian-Canadian was slightly over the limit on his first attempt, but a quick removal of stocking cap and du-rag turned out to be the difference in making weight.

In the televised opener, unbeaten Mike Perez faces Carlos Takam in a scheduled 10-round heavyweight bout.

Perez weighed 231.2 lb for his first fight since his HBO debut last November, a 10-round win over Magomed Abdulsalamov. Takam came in at 256 lb. 

Perez is dedicating Saturday's fight to Abdulsalamov, who suffered injuries during the bout requiring emergency brain surgery. 

Off-camera, unbeaten light heavyweight Eledeir Alvarez squares off versus Andriw Gardiner in a matchup of unbeaten prospects.

Alvarez was originally slated to appear in the evening's co-feature attraction, but was dropped from the telecast after his original opponent, Thomas Oosthuizen withdrew from the bout following injuries sustained in a motor bike accident. Gardiner was brought in as a late replacement, but whose credentials—his unbeaten record notwithstanding—were deemed not yet fit for prime time viewing. 

Alvarez weighed 177.2 lb, while Gardiner tipped the scales at 177.6 lb.

Bute's lack of defense is going to be his undoing. Bute is an offensive machine, but he's got a lot going against him (on paper) coming in to this one, and it is by know means assured he will be able to perform up to his (one time) potential. I don't see him being able to keep Pascal off of him.

[QUOTE=jondacon]Pascal is gonna ICE Bute... You think he didnt see the Froch fight? LOL. Bute is as chinny as they come. One solid shot from Pascal and this fight will take a turn. Bute wont be able to avoid getting hit for the entirety of the fight. PASCAL in 6.[/QUOTE] In your dreams tha...

[QUOTE=Golovkin]Pascal is going to look lost in that ring. This is one of those fights where I'm a 100% of what will happen, Bute will outbox and outclass Pascal. After the first 3 rounds the fight will turn stale with Pascal looking frustrated. I honestly have no idea how some favor Pascal on th...

Pascal by stoppage. pascal was able to find Hopkins in their last fight and hurt him. Bute is going to get caught in the fight eventually. pascal has the speed to catch him and the power to stop him.
