Lucian Bute defeats Sakio Bika.
Lucian Bute has defeated Sakio Bika yesterday evening at the Bell centre in front of 10 000 loud spectators. Bute still has a perfect record of 20-0-0 as a professional. His victory makes him the mandatory opponent for the IBF super-middleweight title held by Alejandro Berrio (26-4-0).
Sakio Bika started the fight very aggresively and won 2 of the first 4 rounds. But after the 4th round, Bute clearly dominated his opponent to finally win by unanimous decision 116-111, 118-109 and 118-109.
Lucian Bute's IBF title shot will be disputed towards the end of september. His dream of fighting in a championship bout is only a few months away.
