Romanian boxer Lucian Bute defeated in the fourth round by technical knockout Italian Andrea Di Luisa, European Champion in the super middleweight category, within a gala that took place in Centre Bell in Montreal, Canada.
The Romanian dominated the match, the first he disputed after a 19-month pause, knocking down his opponent with a left cross, in the fourth round. Di Luisa continued the fight after the count, but Bute covered him with a series of hits, so the referee decided to end the match, after the Italian fighter’s corner threw in the towel.
35 years of age, Lucian Bute thus registered the 32nd victory of his career and the 25th before the limit. He has also been defeated twice in his career.
