This Saturday, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Lucian Bute and Jean Pascal will head as the main event in Canada's biggest boxing event in recent history, which will also be HBO's first championship fight of the year.

Lucian Bute (31-1 with 24 KO) and Jean Pascal (27-2-1 with 16 KO) will duke it out this weekend for the vacant WBC Diamond Light Heavyweight title.

HBO will also be airing the co-main event, a Heavyweight bout between Mike Perez and Carlos Takam.

This broadcast will begin at 10:15 ET, which for us in the sun city is 8:15, Saturday  on HBO.

Despite the excitement circling this fight and the launch of a new boxing year, I can't wait till January 25th,  when Mikey Garcia takes on Juan Carlos Burgos on HBO.
