IBF super middleweight champion, Lucian Bute (29-0, 24 KOs) has signed to face veteran Glen Johnson (51-15-2, 35 KOs) at either the Bell Centre or Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec on November 5.
While Johnson has lost three of his last five, his name value and always solid work ethic bring a much needed shot of legitimacy to Bute’s resume, which has been under attack by critics over the last several fights.
Bute last fought in July, scoring a KO 4 victory over France’s Jean Paul Mendy.
Johnson, in a semi-final bout for Showtime’s World Boxing Classic, dropped a majority decision to Carl Froch.
