Lucian Bute vs Glen Johnson

International Boxing Federation (IBF) Super Middleweight Champion Lucian Bute and ageless former light heavyweight champion Glen “The Road Warrior’’ Johnson are ready for their Nov. 5 showdown. Which will be live on SHOWTIME® (9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast), from Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Canada. 

The largest box office draw in Canadian boxing, the undefeated, Romanian-born Bute (29-0, 24 KOs) will make the ninth defense of his IBF title. 

Johnson (51-15-2, 35 KOs), a legend for his bouts against Roy Jones Jr., Bernard Hopkins and Antonio Tarver, will make his 10th appearance in a world title fight.  The 42-year-old Jamaican-born Johnson has fought out of Miami for almost two decades. 

 

The winner of Bute-Johnson could likely meet the winner of the Super Six World Boxing Classic in the biggest fight in super middleweight history.  The Super Six World Boxing Classic concludes on Saturday, Dec. 17 on SHOWTIME when world champions Andre Ward (World Boxing Association) and Carl Froch (World Boxing Council) clash in the Final in a showdown that will determine the world’s best 168-pound fighter.
