By Chris LaBate

IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (29-0k, 24KOs) is currently training in Florida for his next fight, on November 5 in Quebec, against former light heavyweight king Glen Johnson (51-15-2, 35KOs). Bute is very familiar with Johnson because they sparred for nearly 100 rounds in 2009. Bute considers Johnson the toughest and most experienced opponent that he's every faced.

"I often trained with him, but during the fight I'll be different in the ring against him and he will really be surprised. It should be a very hard fight. He is serious and trains a lot. He faced great fighters like Chad Dawson and Tavoris Cloud. Looking at his record and experience, I can say that this will be my biggest challenge so far. We'll see on November 5 if it was really the biggest challenge or not," Bute said.

[QUOTE=D.I.E.S.E.L]he's lying, I ain't buying into it. We all know what the outcome would be.[/QUOTE] The sad part about it is that he actually ISN'T lying. Johnson would actually be the best win that Bute would have on his resume if he wins. That's saying something because although Johnson is...
