Both have been beaten by Froch & moved up to LHW. Pascal can take a lot but he doesn’t have much power. Bute can’t take much but has better boxing skills so will be interesting. If Pascal comes out quick & strong like Froch did then he knows this is his best chance as Bute buckled under pressure & a few good shots. Bute’s comeback fight was a poor show & he only proved that Froch exposed him for what he is. . . . pants

I like Pascal by UD. If Bute gets careless though, I take Pascal by TKO.

Bute should be OK because Pascal is not a pressure fighter and fights in spurts, he did go punch for punch in his losing effort against Froch so I would have to favour him being more likely to hear the final bell if they go to war…

No one can question Bute’s bravery now. Pascal is a bigger punher than Froch but crucially Pascal is NOT as relentless as Froch. Hard fight to pick but i’m goin with Pascal by KO or Bute by decision.

If Bute’s chin doesn’t let him down, he wins because he’s the better boxer.

I can think of no scenario (other than an early cut) in which this is not a great fight as long as it lasts. Hve to favor Pascal at the weight, but he has been inactive.

Nice pic. It’d be great if they came out for the ring walk dressed like this.

This one is really tough to call. Pascal knows he has to try to pressure through Bute’s defense and get in some solid shots, but will Bute be too quick for Pascal? Pascal will have to absorb some punishment if he wants to get in there. in any event, both of these guys have tremsndous workrates, this could be one for the ages – this should be thunderous!!
