Prior to the arrangement of the fight card, which also features IBF champion James Degale (22-1, 14 KO), there had been speculation that Jack's next fight may have been a unification with Degale.
Lucian Bute (32-3, 25 KO) most recently lost a unanimous decision to Degale. Presumably, he would want another crack at Degale; but even if he does not want to, Degale will want to take the WBC title from him should he win.
The top boxers at super middleweight will likely be competitive against each other. Bute-Jack should be no different. Given my opening statements about Badou Jack, I expect anyone who fights him to be the aggressor.
Bute-Jack will air on Showtime on Saturday, April 30, at 10PM US Eastern.
