MONTREAL, August 31st – Much like Lucian Bute, Sebastien Gauthier (21-2-0, 13 KO) will also be facing the biggest test of his career on November 5th at the Pepsi Colisee in Quebec City. The InterBox protégée will step into the ring against former two-time IBF World Champion Steve “The Canadian Kid” Molitor (33-2-0, 12 KO) in a very interesting all-Canadian match-up.
This bout will be presented on the undercard of the Lucian Bute (29-0-0 24 KO) vs. Glen « Road Warrior » Johnson (51-15-2, 35 KO) Main-Event bout where Bute will be defending his International Boxing Federation (IBF) World title defense for a 9th consecutive time.
