About Lucian Bute
Lucian Bute (born February 28, 1980 in Pechea, Galaţi County, Romania) is a Romanian professional boxer living and fighting out of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Bute is the current IBF Super Middleweight champion.As an amateur, Bute won the bronze medal at the 1999 World Amateur Boxing Championships in Houston, Texas and the Gold Medal at the 2001 Francophone Games. Bute has a professional record of 26 wins (21 KOs), 0 losses and 0 draws. He is trained by Stéphan Larouche, who also trained former world champions Éric Lucas and Leonard Doroftei. On June 15, 2007, Bute faced super middleweight contender and former Olympian Sakio Bika at the Bell Centre in Montreal in an elimination bout for the IBF title. Bute beat Bika by unanimous decision (116-111, 118-109, 118-109) and, as a result, he got his shot at the IBF super middleweight champion Alejandro Berrio on October 19, 2007. Bute beat Berrio via TKO in the 11th round. With this victory, Bute became the third Romanian professional boxing world champion after Leonard Doroftei and Mihai Leu. On October 24, 2008, Bute defeated Mexico's Librado Andrade by unanimous decision but the end of the fight was marred with controversy. While Bute dominated his opponent through most of the fight, he nearly lost the title when he was knocked down by Andrade with two seconds left in the 12th and final round. When the referee, Marlon B. Wright, reached the eight count, the bell sounding the end of the match rang. However, the referee, stopped the count temporarily, when he signaled Andrade to return to his corner. Bute defeated three-time world title challenger Fulgencio Zúñiga on March 13, 2009. In round four, Bute knocked Zúñiga down with a left uppercut to the body. Zúñiga got up, but Bute continued the assault, eventually leading to a stoppage by the referee. On November 29, 2009, Lucian Bute scored a fourth-round KO over Librado Andrade at Colisee Pepsi in Quebec City, Canada. Bute retained his IBF super middleweight title with the victory and is ready to unite the title. On April 17, 2010, Bute stopped Edison Miranda at 1:22 of the third round to retain his IBF super middleweight title in Montreal. The result was a technical knockout.
