OFFICIAL: DZINZIRK vs KONECNY II AND BUTE vs JOHNSON

 

 

Dzinziruk-Konecny rematch on Sept 30

European champion Lukas Konecny, 47-3-0 (22 KOs), is ready to obtain the next bombshell. After capturing the EBU crown, the 33-year-old boxer of the Magdeburg SES team and the first Czech professional boxer in the history to claim such a title, now strongly aims for the World Championship.

On September 30th 2011 he will fight at the Rondo Arena in Brno (Czech Republic) for the WBO Super-Welterweight World Championship. It is a premiere in the history of the Czech Republic as for the first time a Czech professional will fight on home soil for a World Championship crown. And Lukas Konecny gets his “dream opponent” for this for the championship fight as he will face WBO champion Sergei Dzinziruk, 37-1-0 (23 KOs), at this special “DBI Fight Night”. The match-up between the two world-class fighters is a long awaited rematch. On 26th April 2008 the two opponents had collided in Dresden with the Ukrainian Dzinziruk winning a controversial points decision of the battle.

“Finally I have the opportunity to revise the result of Dresden. I’ve been waiting for this for so long. The Czech Republic will now become the world champion,” says Konecny. For this world championship fight the European champion Konecny expects higher chances for a victory not only of the successes and the accumulated experience in the past three years but also because this time the fight will be a home game in the Czech Republic. “This time I’ll let Dzinziruk no chance in the ring. The world champion crown was always my goal. I completed a hard road and I will crown my career with the championship belt,” Konecny added.

“I always knew that Lukas would fight again for the world championship title. He has officially earned the right to challenge the champion. Together with our partner DBI, the local organizer, and the co-promoters Banner Promotion Inc. and Gary Shaw Productions, the Czech sports fans in Brno can witness and live boxing history,” SES manager Ulf Steinforth said about the upcoming title fight of his fighter. Lukas Konecny can be added in the series of other SES world champions like Robert Stieglitz, Jan Zaveck, Natascha Ragosina, Ramona KŁhne, Susi Kenitikian and Christina Hammer. After Jan Zaveck, who will defend his IBF championship belt on September 3 in the United States against Andre Berto, Lukas Konecny would be the second SES professional who would be the first boxing world champion in his country.

The German TV channel SPORT1 and the Czech TV will broadcast the championship fight on September 30 from 9:00pm live from Brno.

Bute-Johnson on Nov 5

Undefeated IBF (International Boxing Federation) Super-Middleweight Champion Lucian Bute will headline on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING when he makes the ninth defense of his 168-pound title against ageless former world light-heavyweight champion “The Road Warrior’’ Glen Johnson on Saturday, Nov. 5, live on SHOWTIME® (9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast).

A gifted Romanian-born southpaw, Bute, 31 years-old, returns to his adopted home of Canada – after a fourth-round knockout over previously unbeaten, No. 1-ranked Jean Paul Mendy last July 9 in Romania – with an unblemished record of 29-0 with 24 KOs. The remarkable Johnson, 42 years-old of Jamaica based in Miami, Florida, is an 18-year veteran known for always giving his absolute best and fighting in an opponent’s backyard. This will be the 10th appearance in a world title bout for Johnson, 51-15-2 (35 KOs).

“I expect a very tough fight,” Bute said. “I know Glen, and he’s an aggressive fighter who will put relentless pressure on me. Everybody knows I sparred with him in 2009, but sparring and fighting are different. I become another person during a fight and you can be sure I’ll have a few surprises for Glen.

“Glen’s a former world champion and he will be in a great shape. He fought hard against a lot of big names in boxing. This is a good challenge for me and beating Johnson is going to solidify my place among the elite in the super middleweight division.”

The immensely popular Bute, who draws the biggest boxing crowds in all of Canada, has won six consecutive fights inside the distance and has been IBF champ since 2007.

“I’m extremely excited about this fight,” Johnson said. “You will see the best Glen Johnson of the past few years. I’m coming to Canada to derail the Bute train and bring the IBF belt back to the United States. My thanks to SHOWTIME for keeping me in the mix of world-class super middleweights and for doing so much for my career.”

“If there is one man who won’t be intimidated by the droves of fans who come out to see Lucian fight, it is Glen Johnson,” said Ken Hershman, Executive Vice President and General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports. “The winner of this matchup puts himself in very good position to land some blockbuster fights within the division. Though both of these boxers are gentlemen outside of the ring, I expect we’ll see both men fighting as if losing is not an option.”

This past March 19, Bute scored two knockdowns en route to a 10th-round technical knockout over a determined Brian Magee at the Bell Centre in Montreal. In his 2008 SHOWTIME debut, Bute retained the IBF belt on ShoBox: The New Generation with a lopsided 12-round decision over Librado Andrade in one of the most controversial and talked about final rounds of the last decade. Bute signed a multi-fight deal with SHOWTIME in November 2010.

(Glen Johnson)

Johnson earned the shot at Froch by scoring an eighth-round TKO over Allan Green in Group Stage 3 of the Super Six on Nov. 6, 2010. Johnson, making his first start at 168 pounds in 10 years, replaced the injured Mikkel Kessler and looked fantastic in his super middleweight return.

Johnson dropped a competitive 12-round majority decision to Froch in a terrific Super Six World Boxing Classic Semifinal matchup in his most recent outing last June 4 on SHOWTIME. Johnson landed his fair share of hard shots but Froch retaliated with brutal combos each time to win by the scores of 117-111, 116-112 and 114-114.

The world title fight is promoted by Interbox, DiBella Entertainment and Warriors Boxing.

Steve Albert will call the action with Al Bernstein and Tarver providing color commentary and Jim Gray serving as ringside reporter. David Dinkins Jr. is the executive producer of SHOWTIME Sports with Ray Smaltz producing and Bob Dunphy directing.
