Quotes: Lucian Bute and Glen Johnson Excited for November 5 Fight

On November 5, undefeated Lucian Bute (29-0, 24 KO) will defend his IBF super middleweight title against highly-respected and battle-tested veteran Glen Johnson (51-15-2, 35 KO) on Showtime. Both fighters had quick quotes for Showtime just after the fight was signed.

Lucian Bute

"I expect a very tough fight. I know Glen, and he's an aggressive fighter who will put relentless pressure on me. Everybody knows I sparred with him in 2009, but sparring and fighting are different. I become another person during a fight and you can be sure I'll have a few surprises for Glen."

"Glen's a former world champion and he will be in a great shape. He fought hard against a lot of big names in boxing. This is a good challenge for me and beating Johnson is going to solidify my place among the elite in the super middleweight division."

Glen Johnson

"I'm extremely excited about this fight,. You will see the best Glen Johnson of the past few years. I'm coming to Canada to derail the Bute train and bring the IBF belt back to the United States. My thanks to SHOWTIME for keeping me in the mix of world-class super middleweights and for doing so much for my career."

Ken Hershman

"If there is one man who won't be intimidated by the droves of fans who come out to see Lucian fight, it is Glen Johnson. The winner of this matchup puts himself in very good position to land some blockbuster fights within the division. Though both of these boxers are gentlemen outside of the ring, I expect we'll see both men fighting as if losing is not an option."
