Leon Lawson Jr., uncle and co-trainer of the Dirrell brothers, Andre and Anthony, both super middleweight standouts:
I think that it will be a decision for Lucian Bute. I think that Lucian Bute will win over Glen Johnson. I think that Lucian has the ring smarts to move and to box.
I think that he’ll stay away from Glen Johnson and not get into any real scuffles or any serious exchanges with Glen. Because he knows that’s the only chance that Glen will have.
I think that Lucian knows that he’s the superior boxer, and that basically the only chance that Glen Johnson has, especially coming down from a heavier weight, (is to draw him into a brawl).
