Lucian Bute: Glen Johnson is My Biggest Challenge

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.
