Centre Videotron Feb 24 Main Events Line Up – Former IBF super middleweight world champion Lucian Bute (32-3-1) returns to the ring this Friday evening in Quebec City, Canada as he moves up to the light heavyweight division. Undefeated Eleider Alvarez (21-0) is providing the opposition in what is much more than a “hometown” return for Bute. Though Alvarez does not have a high level of name recognition he is highly ranked, signalling Bute is serious about making a run at 175 pounds. As for Alvarez, this is the “step up” fight he has been looking for as a win over a former world champion would be a real attention-getter on his resume.
