Lucian Bute vs. Jean Pascal Live Streaming Online HBO PPV Fight 2014 Lucian Bute vs. Jean Pascal is an upcoming boxing light heavyweight Diamond championship fight for the vacant WBC Diamond title which will be held at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, where 22,000 fans are expected to attend. The bout, originally slated for May 25, 2013, had to be postponed after Bute underwent surgery to remove bone chips in his left hand. It will take place now on January 18, 2014.
The co-production of Yvon Michel‘s GYM and Jean Bédard’s Interbox promotions and televised via HBO, has trumped a proposed HBO-televised rematch between Jean Pascal and RING and WBC 175-pound champion Chad Dawson that was slated for the same date at Bell Centre in Montreal. Lucian Bute had the right to face Carl Froch in a contractually obligated rematch for the IBF Super Middleweight belt, but passed on that for the time being, freeing the Englishman to face Mikkel Kessler.
It’s the biggest fight in Canadian history since 1980, when Roberto Durán won a 15-round decision to win the welterweight world title in his first fight against Sugar Ray Leonard at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium in front of 46,000 spectators. Bute, who is fighting out of Montreal, versus Pascal is pitting the two biggest draws and most popular fighters in Canadian boxing who are considered huge stars in Quebec.
