Michel: Bute Injured, No Replacement To Fight Pascal Yet


Just when the ball seemed to be rolling at a great pace for the year, injuries strike once again. Lucian Bute has injured his left hand and was forced to withdraw from his May 25th mega-fight with Jean Pascal.

“I was informed about an hour ago that Bute injured his left hand. I was told he will have surgery on Thursday. Right now everything is still new. The fight will be postponed,” said Yvon Michel, promoter for Jean Pascal.

There is still no word on if a replacement fighter will take Bute’s place.
