Heavyweight Paul Butlin (12-9, 3KOs) will take on cruiserweight Johnathon Banks (20-1, 14KOs) on the undercard to Wladimir Klitschko-Ruslan Chagaev at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. Butlin had a lot of overseas press from his last fight, when UK hevayweight prospect Derek Chisora bit him on the ear during their 5/22 contest. Chrisora won an eight round decision but he was fined and suspended for four months in the aftermath.

Banks is coming off the first loss of his career, an eight round knockout to IBF crusierweight champ Tomasz Adamek. Butlin is taking the fight late. He feels very confident of victory. He saw Banks' loss and sees the fighter as a very beatable opponent.

"I will fight anyone, anywhere. He is definitely beatable - I saw his last fight and thought it was boring. Banks is coming on off a bad knockout so he is going to be panicking. He is not a heavyweight either and I am so he will be adjusting to that," Butlin told The Melton Times.
