Gauthier vs Molitor Added To The Bute-Johnson Card

Montreal – Much like Lucian Bute, Sebastien Gauthier (21-2-0, 13 KO) will also be facing the biggest test of his career on November 5th at the Pepsi Colisee in Quebec City. The InterBox protégée will step into the ring against former two-time IBF World Champion Steve “The Canadian Kid” Molitor (33-2-0, 12 KO) in a very interesting all-Canadian match-up.

This bout will be presented on the undercard of the Lucian Bute (29-0-0 24 KO) vs. Glen « Road Warrior » Johnson (51-15-2, 35 KO) Main-Event bout where Bute will be defending his International Boxing Federation (IBF) World title defense for a 9th consecutive time.

Sebastien Gauthier won his last four bouts, and is very happy to have this incredible opportunity to put his boxing career in overdrive. “Molitor has accomplished a lot in boxing, has a good name in the world of boxing and has achieved the highest of the highs in twice becoming World champion. This is a big test for me and it could not come at a better time in my career. I am both excited and motivated for this fight. Plus, I can count on the support of all boxing fans in attendance at the Pepsi Colisee. I can`t wait for November 5th!” states Gauthier, who has already begun training for the fight.

Steve Molitor, from Sarnia, Ontario intends to put his last defeat behind him. The “Canadian Kid” was scheduled to box on the Bute vs. Magee InterBox card last March but was forced to travel to South Africa due to a technicality to defend his title, where he lost a decision to Takalani Ndlovu. “I thank InterBox, my promoter Top Rank and my manager Cameron Dunkin for giving me the chance to fight on a major card. I am still bitter about losing my title, but this bitterness is motivating me more than ever to keep the course and once again become a World champion. I respect Sebastien. He is a talented boxer with good power so I have to be very prepared against him. Unfortunately for Sebastien, it won`t be against me that he makes a name for himself in boxing.”

InterBox President Mr. Jean Bedard is proud to have added this fight that he is co-promoting with Top Rank on the November 5th card. “Our objective is to offer significant challenges to our boxers with the goal of presenting the best show possible to our loyal fans. The Gauthier-Molitor bout is a perfect example of our plan. I am confident both fighters will offer a great fight to the Pepsi Colisee crowd as well as those watching the fight across the globe. Finally, this fight will offer good visibility to the City of Quebec from the rest of Canada.”
