Super middle weight IBF champion Lucian Bute knocks out Librado Andrade in the 4th round of their rematch in his hometown of Montreal. On the under card Ali Funeka draws with Joan Guzman in a one sided dominant performance that many felt Ali won.
IBF Super middle weight champion Lucian Bute knocked out challenger number one ranked Librado Andrade in front of Bute's hometown crowd Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Canada.
After several months of anticipation since their first fight last October where Bute won a controversial decision and was gifted an extremely long count by the referee to regain his composure and get up from being knocked down, Bute clearly redeemed himself tonight with the knock out victory.
The first three rounds had Bute out boxing and out landing on the challenger who kept coming forward despite getting hit cleanly blow after blow.
In the fourth round Bute landed a big left hand on the chin of Andrade that he never saw coming which sent him to the canvas. Ironically this took place just as commentator Max Kellerman was stating that Andrade's chin is unable to be rocked.
Andrade winked to the judges as he was on the ground as if to tell them that he is ok and not hurt. He got back up to his feet and then Bute landed a precise body punch that sent him back down to the canvas and paralyzed him in pain.
The referee counted to 10 and Bute won by knock out at 2:57 of the 4th round.
In the post fight interview Bute spoke a couple of sentences in English and the rest in his native French language about how he compared this fight to Lennox Lewis and his two fights with Hasim Rahman and how he was so passionate in redeeming his loss as well.
On the under card top lightweight contenders Ali Funeka and Joan Guzman fought to a controversial majority draw where many experts including the HBO commentators felt that Funeka had clearly won and dominated undefeated Guzman whose face was beaten bloody.
