Al Bernstein says upcoming Bute-Johnson bout to be a ‘treat for fans’

by on Nov.02, 2011, under Boxing News

When IBF Super Middleweight Champ Lucian Bute defends his crown against Road Warrior Glen Johnson on November 6, it could be an “instant classic,” according to Hall of Fame boxing announcer Al Bernstein.

Bernstein will be ringside call the fight on Showtime Championship Boxing, along with Steve Albert and Antonio Tarver. It’s a match he is anxious to announce, and part of the reason is Glen Johnson. “Johnson has not been in a bad fight since…well, maybe never,” Al said. He added “Glen makes fan friendly fights, and his last match with Carl Froch was outstanding. He has come down in weight to 168 at age 42-that’s almost unheard of, and he’s still performing at a very high level.”

Al says the Champion, Bute, has changed his identity in recent fights, and that too augers well for this match. Al said, “Some still think of Bute as a boxer-puncher, but now he has transformed himself into a boxer-PUNCHER. He has six straight title defenses by knockout. He is perhaps the best body puncher in boxing. He will not run from Johnson.”
