Bute, Johnson speak

With a shot at the biggest fight in Super Middleweight history on the line, undefeated superstar and IBF Super Middleweight Champion Lucian Bute will make the ninth defense of his 168-pound title against ageless former light heavyweight champion Glen “The Road Warrior” Johnson on November 5 live on SHOWTIME® (9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast).

The largest box office draw in Canadian boxing, the undefeated, Romanian-born Bute will enter the ring at Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec with an unblemished record of 29-0 with 24 KOs.  Bute has registered knockouts in seven of his eight title defenses. The 42-year-old Johnson (51-15-2, 35 KOs) will make his 10th appearance in a world title fight, once again traveling to enemy territory for a shot at a championship.

The winner of Bute-Johnson could likely meet the winner of the Super Six World Boxing Classic, which concludes on December 17 on SHOWTIME. See what the fighters had to say on Tuesday’s conference call:

Canelo camp denies street fight

Eddy Reynoso, manager and trainer of Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, claims the ongoing rumors of a street fight between Alvarez and Archie Solis are completely false. “Those rumors of a fist fight between Saul and Archie are nothing but lies, Saul’s mind is 100% on Kermit Cintron,” said Reynoso. “His focus is on his training camp and I don’t know where this rumor came from, he is into what he is doing and that is preparing himself very hard to face a tough opponent in Cintron.” Alvarez will make the third defense of his WBC super welterweight championship against Cintron, a former welterweight champion, in Mexico City.

Bute, Johnson Quick Quotes

By Mike Bernier

Undefeated Lucian Bute (29-0, 24 KOs) is ready to defend his super middleweight IBF belt for the ninth time against former light heavyweight champion Glen “The Road Warrior” Johnson (51-15-2 35KOs). The fight will take place in Bute’s hometown of Quebec City, Canada live at the Pepsi Coliseum on Saturday, November 5th on Showtime Championship Boxing, 9PM EST.

Lucian Bute: “I’ve been in camps for the past seven weeks and it feels like I’m training in preparation for the Super Six Tournament against the creditable Glen Johnson. I’m working hard in camp and I’m very confident that on November 5th I’ll put on a great performance.”

Glen Johnson: “I have huge plans moving forward, I feel great. I plan on putting on a tremendous performance and I expect to come out victorious. I have no problem making 168, it’s not an issue, we will make weight, and it gets easier each time.”

Johnson will turn 43 two months after the fight.

Both boxers, while training in 2009 for their rematches against Librado Andrade and Chad Dawson, sparred almost 100 rounds against one another. They didn’t spar with anyone else.

Bute: “It built my confidence. It was hard competitive sparring, we wanted to win every day.”

Johnson: “It was great work, we both accomplished our goals, I believe we both got better.”

Both men will put their friendship behind them when they step into the ring and resume it at the conclusion of the fight. Ticket sales for the fight are going well according to a representative from Bute’s promoter, Interbox. 13,000 tickets have been sold with fewer than 3,000 still available.

Javy Martinez, “Trick Or Beat”

Story and photos by Boxing Bob Newman

This Friday in Albany, New York, Ares Promotions will be presenting it’s sixth pro boxing card in the “Fight Night” Series, fittingly dubbed “Trick Or Beat.” While the card pits familiar local favorites against imports, arguably the most popular fight in the bill is the least experienced in the pro ranks. Javier “Javy” Martinez has only one pro bout under his belt, but judging by his popularity, one would think he’s an undefeated, long-time boxing champion. That he is not, but to many, including Martinez himself, he’s already won in the battle of life. (more…)

Nelson preps for Cro Cop

UFC 137 is LIVE on PPV Oct. 29!

It took just over seven years of being a professional in the sport, a case of walking pneumonia and a former UFC heavyweight champion, but Roy Nelson’s cardio looked bad in a fight. For all the haters and harpies of his trademark tummy, UFC 130 was really a unique experience seeing “Big Country” gassed in the second and third round while being outwrestled by Frank Mir. The Ultimate Fighter season 10 winner knows best how uncharacteristic his performance was, he’s owned up to it and he is ready to move on from it . . . Click here for more by Jordan Newmark, UFC.com
