The November 3 undercard for the Lucian Bute-Denis Grachev card in Montreal is set, featuring local favorites and prospects in action.
The undercard for the November 3 card in Montreal headlined by a 170-pound catchweight bout between Lucian Bute and Denis Grachev has been finalized, with plenty of local favorites on the bill.
Bute (30-1, 24 KO) is looking to bounce back from a bad loss to Carl Froch on May 26, where he went to Nottingham and was blown out in five rounds. A win for Bute, and a win for Froch on November 17 against Yusaf Mack, will set them up for a March 2013 rematch in Montrael, per contractual obligations.
In a 10-round light heavyweight fight, Renan St-Juste (23-3-1, 15 KO) will take on American veteran Allan Green (31-4, 21 KO). St-Juste hasn't fought since December 2011, when he was stopped via injury against Anthony Dirrell on ShoBox. Green was last seen on May 19, knocked out in the fourth round by Mikkel Kessler in Denmark in a fun fight.
Sebastien Gauthier (22-3, 14 KO) will face Rodrigo Guerrero (17-4-1, 11 KO) in a 10-round super bantamweight fight. Guerrero briefly held the IBF title at super flyweight, and won a bantamweight bout his last time out. Still just 24, he's what you could call a young veteran -- battle-tested and taking risks on the road now. Gauthier won his last fight on September 28 over a club fighter, and lost a split decision to Steve Molitor before that.
Junior middleweight prospect Mikael Zewski (16-0, 12 KO) will also be in action, facing Roberto Ventura (11-6, 11 KO) in an eight-round fight.
Other fights: Schiller Hyppolite (5-0, 2 KO) vs Francy Ntetu (7-0, 2 KO), super middleweights; Bogdan Dinu (7-0, 4 KO) vs Eric Martel Bahoeli (7-2, 4 KO), heavyweights; Sebastien Bouchard (3-0, 2 KO) vs Glisandy Mejia (3-0, 2 KO), junior middleweights; Michael Gadbois (7-0, 3 KO) vs TBA, lightweights.
