Jean Pascal Routs Lucian Bute; Fight With Adonis Stevenson Likely Next

Jean Pascal Bute

Lucian Bute had a good run, but it is over now. When you are letting good, not great fighters like Jean Pascal dominate you, it is time to consider other options.

In what was build as the Canadian Super Bowl, Pascal won a pretty easy 12 round decision over the crowd favorite Bute.

Besides the 12th round when Pascal was tired and on cruise control, Bute showed nothing except sporadic aggression, while getting routinely getting hit with the cleaner, harder punches.

Pascal and Bute talked about a rematch, but I doubt it happens. Pascal is likely to fight Adonis Stevenson who would like a nice pay day before stepping into the ring with Sergey Kovalev.
