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.

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 Canada, so Pascal...
