“Should Bute lose to Alvarez, the case can be made that he simply isn’t a light heavyweight, which may, as Tremblay suggests, lead to him being recycled one more time at 168 pounds, although the division is about to undergo a shift with DeGale and Jack set to unify titles. But if Alvarez loses, what happens to the Stevenson fight? And if Bute were to win, does he stand a remote chance against the murderous-punching “Superman”?
In the final analysis, Lucian Bute vs Eleider Alvarez is a prominent and significant fight, albeit a completely unexpected one. But instead of being a logical eliminator for the right to fight Adonis Stevenson, it’s a contest that in the end might produce more questions than answers. Either way, let’s hope it also produces some serious thrills for fight fans. From “High Stakes In Quebec City” by Zachary Alapi
