“I thought I won the fight. I don’t think he was landing anything.” That is the opinion of defeated fighter Glen Johnson, who lost a one-side contest against IBF super middleweight world titlist Lucian Bute at the Colisee Pepsi in Quebec City, Canada on Saturday, November 5. Whilst Bute rarely changed into a higher gear, he was elusive in defence and precise in attack. He now wants the winner of Andre Ward and Carl Froch: “It’s my dream.”
