Tonight at 8 pm ET, BLH will be here with live coverage for the Lucian Bute-Eleider Alvarez card, which will air on pay-per-view in both the United States and Canada. If you’re not willing to pay the $39.99 to tune in, this is the place to be to follow along with what goes down in Quebec City.
Bute (32-3-1, 25 KO) and Alvarez (21-0, 10 KO) are meeting in a WBC light heavyweight title eliminator, with a shot at Adonis Stevenson on the line.
36-year-old Bute, a former super middleweight titleholder, is just 2-3-1 in his last six fights, but his popularity keeps him in the mix for fights like this, and a draw with WBC super middleweight titleholder Badou Jack last time out helps his case, too, controversial or not. Alvarez, 33, has been treading water for a bit, waiting for a fight like this one. Now it’s here.
The undercard has nothing of serious importance, but hopefully will at least have some action. You can see the full lineup at BoxRec.
Patrick L. Stumberg will be on the round-by-round call tonight. Join us!
