Lucian Bute suffered an injury to his left hand that has forced the postponement of his May 25th bout vs. Jean Pascal.  Lucian will undergo surgery this week to remove bone fragments from his hand and recovery is anticipated to take a few weeks.

Motivated like never before, Lucian Bute was in the middle of the best training camp of his career.  “I am very disappointed by this injury.  I have never been in better shape.  My preparation was ahead of schedule until late last week.  The fans that paid high ticket prices to see me in action against Pascal deserve to see both boxers at their best.  Unfortunately I would be far from my best in my present state.  For my own good, I have to take the advice of my doctor and undergo this operation.  I feel very sad for the fans” declared Lucian Bute.

“This situation is heartbreaking.  Lucian`s preparation surpassed our objectives and now this injury will prevent him from offering his fans a great performance on May 25th.  We are all very disappointed with this turn of events but the decision to go straight to surgery was the only one to be made as he could no longer use his left hand adequately in training.  In the past, we made the error of not listening to the signs of distress coming from the body of an athlete.  We do not want to make these same mistakes again » states head trainer Stephan Larouche.

InterBox president Jean Bedard fully supports his boxer during this difficult time. “This is very discouraging for the team.  InterBox and Lucian Bute have been through a lot to offer this fight to the fans, but unfortunately injuries are a part of the sport.  We made the decision to postpone the fight in the best interests of the fans and of our boxer, Lucian.  We will do everything in our power so that Lucian rehabilitates from this injury as fast as possible so he can lace up the gloves against Jean Pascal”.

InterBox and Evenko will communicate the procedure for refund of purchased tickets as soon as possible.

Si Bute-Pascal peut avoir lieu plus tard, j'espère qu'on pourra garder nos billets, c'est-à-dire nos places parce que je trouverais pas ça correct de les perdre si le combat est simplement reporté.

Et puis si Interbox ou Gym présente un gala avec Bute ou Pascal dans un avenir rapproché, la moindre des considérations serait de nous laisser choisir entre se faire rembourser ou garder nos billets/places.

Bonjour M. Pelletier, le combat n'est pas annulé mais reporté au 7 décembre 2013 ou 25 janvier 2014. La date officielle sera confirmée dès que possible. Vos billets sont donc valides pour la nouvelle date et vous pourrez donc conserver les mêmes sièges. Si vous voulez vous faire rembourser, faudra communiquer avec le site où vous avez acheter vos billets. Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 10:22
