“I am extremely happy to have this opportunity at this point of my career. I lost my title in England against an English fighter and now, I will box in Quebec against another English boxer, for the same title I defended for 5 years. I am really motivated by this opportunity to regain the title I lost in England in 2012. The fact that the fight will take place in front of my fans in Quebec City, where I never lost, will be the factor that will make the difference. I give all my respect to the champion James DeGale for accepting to travel for his first defense, but the belt will stay in Quebec November 28! “, assured Bute.
