Pascal’s win over Bute leaves questions

Jean Pascal’s one-sided victory over Lucien Bute last Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada ended with questions, not about the scoring, but about the fighters themselves.

His effort lacked the drama of Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr.’s knockdown rally against Sergio Martinez. Bute’s fans certainly were hoping for similar results.

Then he burst out of his defensive shell, and started ripping off his own looping shots, sapping the enthusiasm out of Bute fans. Continue reading
