Jean Pascal vs. Lucian Bute will take place on Saturday night from the Bell Centre in Montreal, and it will be a true crossroads battle for two former champions.
Pascal, once the recognized light heavyweight champion, has suffered from recurring stretches of bad luck in recent years. Since losing his title to Bernard Hopkins in 2010, he's fought through a slew of injuries and has only been in the ring twice, winning both times against low-level opposition.
Bute, himself a former world champion at 168 pounds, will be fighting for the second straight time at light heavyweight. He rebounded from a stunningly lopsided loss to Carl Froch with a decision win over Denis Grachev in late 2012, but he hasn't fought since.
Here we'll break down the fight and the fighters for you. This is your complete preview and prediction for Pascal vs. Bute!
