Bute-Miranda presser quotes

“It’s hard to change the style you used during your whole career in nine short months. When you’re in an intense situation you quickly turn back to your old habits,” states Lucian Bute (25-0-0, 20 K.-O.) about his opponent Edison Miranda (33-4-0, 29 K.-O.), who switched trainers and is now with the renowned Joe Goossen. Bute admits that Edison Miranda is a hard puncher and he will have to be very careful for the entire fight. The IBF super middleweight champion also stated, in English: “I’m very happy that HBO has come to Montreal and I’m hoping that they will stay with me for the future.”

“When Lucian began his training camp he had two arms. During the training camp a third arm grew and at the end of the fight Miranda will proclaim he was sure Bute had three arms,” states Lucian Bute’s trainer Stephan Larouche.

Edison Miranda’s trainer Goossen is confident that his training program will make all the difference. “I’m really impressed by the capacity of Edison to follow my directives. When I saw him lose the decision vs Andre Ward in 2009, he only had a heavy right hand to rely on. I’ve asked him to try new things, and he did them all with extreme precision. I’ve seen see a lot of fighters in my career and Edison has the abilities and capacities of a great athlete. He’s one of the best athlete I’ve see in my gym. If Team Bute thinks that my fighter will be tired after the sixth round then they are in for a bad surprise.”

Edison Miranda declared: “Someone at the grocery store asked me why I haven’t trash talked Lucian Bute. I answered that I respect fighters who earn it and Lucian Bute has earned that respect.”

Luis Barragan, Director of Programming for HBO, was in attendance and had very nice words for both boxers.
