Lucian Bute (No. 3) vs. Glen Johnson (No. 7) Predictions

Lucian Bute vs Glen Johnson Odds: Saturday November, 5thfrom Quebec City, Quebec, I.B.F. Super-middleweight champ Lucian Bute will defend his title against the “Road Warrior” Glen Johnson. The 42-year old Johnson, 51-15-2, 35 KO’s, is being given little respect by the oddsmakers where he is a 10-1 underdog on the Lucian Bute vs Glen Johnson Odds. The 31-year old southpaw Bute, 29-0, 24 KO’s, is on most fight picks experts pound-4-pound list and this bout is in Lucian’s backyard. Our fight picks crew can’t help but remember how the flashy Bute almost submitted to a relentless Librado Andrade late in 2008 with Johnson’s style cut from the same cloth as Andrade’s, only better. The 7th ranked Johnson is durable and always brings heat but I think the younger Lucian Bute will take this by unanimous decision.
