"I'm very confident. Very strong. I know Saturday night there's just one winner: Lucian Bute."
"I hope he's well-prepared because I'm well-prepared. We're gonna do a great fight if he fights. We're doing this for you guys."
Bute vs Pascal will be live on HBO this Saturday night at 10:15 pm EST from the Bell Center in Montreal, paired with a heavyweight fight between Mike Perez and Carlos Takam.
BLH will have live coverage on Saturday night for both fights, with preview pieces tomorrow and staff picks in the evening as well.
