Bute/Pascal might be the best fight of the year – somewhat under the radar here in the US, but I am sure it will be a big deal in Canada. You can make a case for either guy winning. Pascal has been at light-heavy longer and he is tougher than Bute – he survived Froch while Bute was ko’d by Cobra. I would favor Pascal.

I wonder if Bute has the physical strength to hold off Pascal.

I expect Bute to win handily…he’s the busier, classier boxer and with constant movement and feints should be able to exploit Pascal’s low-volume punching and tendency to come forward with his head down. I expect Bute to win handily, unless Pascal can catch Bute with a singular KO punch.

This will a battle of the handbags. It’s in there gentic make up. Expect these 2 to have some Brits and Anzacs in their corner to back them up when they run form each other. Then an American will jump in the ring at round 9, fresh, and beat them both up and claim to be the saviour of boxing.

If Bute is in the right frame of mind then he can win, Pascal isn’t the type to relentlessly stalk like Froch did. It’s all about composure as far as Bute is concerned, Pascal is an explosive fighter but Bute can exploit his stamina issues and low volume.

This is a great fight and i think it depends which Bute turns up, tough one to call.
