Bute vs Johnson: Live Results and Round-By-Round Coverage

Tonight at 9 p.m. EDT on Showtime (U.S.), BoxNation (U.K.) and Bell PPV (Canada, $59.95 (!)), Lucian Bute will defend his IBF super middleweight title against veteran Glen Johnson. In the co-feature, junior welterweights Pier Olivier Cote and Jorge Luis Teron will do battle.

Bute (29-0, 24 KO) is taking arguably the toughest fight of his career to date. Though Johnson (51-15-2, 35 KO) is 42 years old, he's still a strong contender at 168 pounds, and is a step up from Bute's opponents to date.

Bute is widely favored by oddsmakers, but that could be a misreading of this matchup. Johnson is coming off of a loss to Carl Froch, but styles make fights, and Glen's ability to fight well inside could be a major test for Bute this evening.

We'll have live coverage of both fights tonight, provided by myself, but don't forget that we'll also be covering the HBO show, led by Andrew Fruman, in another post that will be up shortly. Those interested will be able to catch this show and the HBO main event.
