Glen Johnson, Andre Dirrell, Peter Quillin and Dmitry Pirog are all being mentioned as potential rivals for the November return of IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute. The Canadian star was scheduled to face former champion Kelly Pavlik, who walked away from the fight after being upset with the offered purse of $1.35 million dollars.

Netboxe/BoxingScene.com had the opportunity to speak briefly with Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin, who tells us that he won't accept an to face Bute.

"I have not received an offer, and if I did I do not think that I would take this fight because my weight is 160-pounds," Quillin said.

During a conversation with American writer Steve Kim, former champion Glen Johnson confirmed his interest in accepting a fight with Bute. Johnson recently participated in the Super Six tournament, and sparred with Bute more than once while they were training for upcoming fights in Florida.

good to see Bute is trying to STEP UP THE COMPETITION! Quillin really don't make sense to me though, Quillin is still trying to establish himself eat super middleweight, I don't think he should jump in weight just yet, let him climb to the top at 160 FIRST then maybe in another year or so they...

[QUOTE=B.R!ghteous]Quillin walks around at 172-174 max! He has never weighed 180 in his life. I'm disturbed that he would make so much noise about fighting Martinez and not be willing to fight Bute. Maybe Kid Chocolate is not who I thought he was after all. He is only ranked by the IBF at #6 ...

[QUOTE=ssop]Here , lots of poeples are talking against Bute. But kind of funny that anyone who as something to loose in boxing dont want to get in the ring with Bute. Any reasons is good for them, Kessler, Pavlik and others. Jonhson wants to fight Bute, but him at 42 years old, what does he have...

[QUOTE=LegendOfLink]Quillin would probably be KO'd he is very inexperienced. It was smart for his team or him to turn it down.[/QUOTE] Who has Bute fought? He isn't even mentioned in the Super 6, EVER! Oh wait, he did fight Jesse Brinkley and KO'd him in the 9th round. Quillin also fought Brin...

A few years ago I could see Johnson, but not now after how he lost the last time, he was so lethargic...he'd take a beating vs Bute, what he doesn't want @ 42...
