On Monday, May 13th, InterBox confirmed that the highly anticipated matchup between Jean Pascal and Lucian Bute would take place on December 7th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The two fighters were scheduled to take on each other on May 25th but the fight was canceled due to an injury suffered by Bute in which he needed to have surgery.
Bute will be wearing a cast for the next six weeks.
“Bute believes he will be able to resume boxing in September, which is quite early to expect a fight in December,” said David Messier, director of communications for InterBox.
Should Bute’s rehab last longer,January 25th of next year is another option, if not there is no plan C.
