article imageBoxing: Lucian Bute - Glen Johnson signed for Nov. 5 in Quebec

By Paul Magno     Aug 17, 2011 in Sports
The Romanian-born, Canada-based super middleweight champ Lucian Bute will be back in action against the veteran former champ, "Road Warrior," Glen Johnson.
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.
In recent weeks, Bute made efforts to secure bouts against Mikkel Kessler and Kelly Pavlik with both potential opponents eventually pulling their names from consideration.
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.
