MONTREAL - Promoters for a May 25 clash between Lucian Bute and Jean Pascal are calling it the biggest fight between two Canadians in boxing history.

They may be right if they succeed in packing more than 20,000 fans into the Bell Centre to see two former world champions with contrasting styles and personalities settle a long standing debate over which is the better fighter.

"We're still in our prime and people want to see this fight, so the right time is now," Pascal (27-2-1) said Tuesday at a news conference that drew a crowd of media and a few hundred fight fans.

"We came up together here in parallel," said Bute (31-1). "We're both known here and around the world.

"It will be a spectacular fight."

Both leave this week for separate training camps, with Bute and trainer Stephan Larouche headed for West Palm Beach, Fla., and Pascal and trainer Marc Ramsay off to Las Vegas.
