Bute vs Pascal: Live streaming updates and round-by-round coverage

Tonight at 10:15 pm EST on HBO, Lucian Bute faces Jean Pascal in the main event from Montreal for Canadian boxing bragging rights. BLH will be here with live coverage.

It's been called the Super Bowl of Canadian boxing, the Mayweather-Pacquiao of Canadian boxing, and simply the biggest fight in Canadian boxing history. Tonight at 10:15 pm EST from the Bell Centre in Montreal, live on HBO, Lucian Bute and Jean Pascal will go head-to-head in the main event, a light heavyweight bout scheduled for 12 rounds. In the co-feature, heavyweights Mike Perez will face Carlos Takam.

Bute (31-1, 24 KO) hasn't fought since late 2012, though Pascal (28-2-1, 17 KO) has also been inactive, as he's fought just a pair of easy tune-up bouts since May 2011. Who will be in better shape physically and mentally? Have either of them truly recovered from their last defeats?

Perez (20-0, 12 KO) is coming off of a win in November over Magomed Abdusalamov, while Takam (29-1, 23 KO) hasn't lost since 2009, not that he's fought many real opponents.

BLH will be here starting at 10:15 with live coverage of both fights. Join us!
