Lucian Bute Speaks to the media
Canadian boxing hero Lucian Bute insists the Pepsi Coliseum will be ‘rocking’ when he makes the latest defence of his IBF super-middleweight title against American ’Road Warrior’ Glen Johnson on Saturday night.
At the final press conference before the pair clash LIVE on Showtime the undefeated Bute,29-0-(24)m said; “I’m very happy to be here in Quebec. Like everyone knows, I have great memories here. In 2009, I experienced the best moment of my career which was my big victory in the second (Librado) Andrade fight in front of a sold out crowd at the Pepsi Coliseum. I’m certain that Saturday will yield the same result. The Coliseum will be rocking again and excitement will be in the air.
“I was in training camp for three months. I know Glen Johnson is prepared. He is a very good boxer with lots and lots of experience. I did not take him lightly because I know that a victory over Glen will catapult me to the next level."
Bute added; “Thank you very much to the city and to all InterBox sponsors for making me feel at home and opening the door again to box at the Pepsi Coliseum. Thank you to the media for being present. Thank you for the City of Quebec for all the support. I would like to thank Showtime for showing my fight. Thanks to Glen Johnson and his team.”
