Lucian Bute vs Glen Johnson : Who Wins

On Nov. 5 International Boxing Federation (IBF) Super Middleweight Champion Lucian Bute will headline on Showtime Boxing  making his ninth defense of his 168-pound title against ageless former world light heavyweight champion Glen “The Road Warrior’’ Johnson (9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast) from  Canada.

 

Boxing champion Lucian Bute in the ring

A gifted Romanian-born southpaw, Bute, 31, returns to his adopted home of Canada – after a fourth-round knockout over previously unbeaten, No. 1-ranked Jean Paul Mendy last July 9 in Romania – with an unblemished record of 29-0 with 24 KOs. The remarkable Johnson, 42, of Miami, Fla., is an 18-year veteran known for always giving his absolute best and fighting in an opponent’s backyard. This will be the 10th appearance in a world title bout for the Jamaican-born Johnson (51-15-2, 35 KOs).

“I expect a very tough fight,” Bute said. “I know Glen, and he’s an aggressive fighter who will put relentless pressure on me. Everybody knows I sparred with him in 2009, but sparring and fighting are different. I become another person during a fight and you can be sure I’ll have a few surprises for Glen.
