InterBox and Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM) are proud to announce that the historic bout featuring Lucian Bute (31-1-0 24 KO) vs. Jean Pascal (27-2-1 16 KO) will take place on Saturday, May 25th at the Montreal Bell Centre. The Bute vs. Pascal fight had already been set for that date, however, the site was not yet official, with both Montreal and Quebec City being candidates.
Both boxers were invited by the Bell Centre and the Montreal Canadiens to participate in the ceremonial puck drop yesterday just before the NHL game between the Montreal Canadiens and the visiting Buffalo Sabres. They did a stare down and took part in the pregame tradition, participating in a photo op along the way.
