Judging correctly and scoring the fights

Many of us will have watched the first major television fight of the year last weekend, which resulted in rather disappointing performances from both Jean Pascal and Lucian Bute in their long awaited all Canadian light-heavyweight match.  It resulted in a unanimous decision victory, rightly so, for the younger man Pascal.  For once then it was not the judges at ringside who came...

Light heavyweight rankings updates after Pascal vs. Bute results

Jean Pascal dominated his Canadian rival Lucian Bute on Saturday in Montreal. The win vaults Pascal right back into the mix at 175 lbs, and also leaves Bute in a bad spot. Considering his performance, the question of whether he should hang up the gloves for good isn't far-fetched. Now though, it's time to update our top 10 light heavyweight division rankings after the bout...

Stick a fork in Lucian Bute… he’s done

Applying his busy, swarming style to its best effect, Jean Pascal won a commanding points victory over crosstown rival Lucian Bute this weekend. But in my mind it wasn't Pascal's punches in bunches energy that stood out, but Bute's relative passivity. He was effectively shut down for most of the fight, rarely letting his hands go with any degree of what had previously...

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

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...

Pascal beats Bute by unanimous decision in battle of Canadian stars

Jean Pascal dominated an unusually tentative Lucian Bute to win the battle of former world champions by unanimous decision before 20,479 at the Bell Centre on Saturday night. The decidedly pro-Bute crowd could do little to help their fighter, who appeared more concerned with not getting hit than with launching attacks. One judge had it 117-110, another 117-111 and the third 116...

Jean Pascal Untroubled By Vacant Lucian Bute

It would be wrong in a couple different ways to say that Jean Pascal beat Lucian Bute on HBO Saturday. He got the victory, certainly. But Bute practically handed the win to him, save for one final 12th round flurry, so the active verb of "beat" doesn't really apply. And Pascal beat a version of Bute that was nothing like the man who once was the body punch KO king of...
