Jean Bédard of InterBox has announced that Lucian Bute (29-0-0) will defend his IBF super middleweight title against Glen Johnson (51-15-2) on November 5th. It is assumed that Bute-Johnson will be staged at the Bell Centre or at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec. Showtime will televise, likely paired with highlights of Mikkel Kessler's bout with WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz, which is scheduled to take place on the same day in Denmark.
 
Bute's team tried to secure Kessler and Kelly Pavlik for the date, but Kessler turned their offer down in favor of facing Stieglitz, and Pavlik rejected a guaranteed offer of $1.35 million dollars. Johnson was reportedly not happy with the money being offered. The two sides continued to negotiate and a deal was reached.

In his last battle, fought on June 4 in the Super 6 tournament, Johnson gave WBC champion Carl Froch all he could handle and lost by way of majority decision.

damn, major respect to Glen. The guy takes on everyone. Respect to Bute too. This isnt exactly him vs Froch or Ward, but its still a damn good fight, considering Kessler decided to go after Rob. Im excited.

[QUOTE=Megamasterking]If Johnson is not careful with that liver shot, it will be game over, it's also the most painful shot.[/QUOTE] I find it amusing that so many people guarantee (something they can't do in the first place) that Bute won't KO Glen Glen does have a great chin, but Bute is ...

Johnson could wobble Bute if he lands the same shots he landed on Froch.
