Both fighters in the 12-round co-feature also made weight. Rising Canadian star Pier-Olivier Côté (17-0, 11 KOs), of Quebec City, weighed in at the junior welterweight limit of 140 pounds. His opponent Jorge Luis Teron (25-2-1, 17 KOs), of the Bronx, New York, weighed in at 139.25 pounds.

One of the largest box office draws in boxing, the undefeated, Romanian-born Bute will enter the ring with an unblemished record of 29-0 with 24 KOs.  Bute has registered knockouts in seven of his eight title defenses and has only gone the distance five times in his professional career.

Johnson (51-15-2, 35 KOs), a legend for his bouts against Roy Jones Jr., Bernard Hopkins and Antonio Tarver, will make his 10th appearance in a world title fight. The 42-year-old Jamaican-born Johnson has fought out of Miami for almost two decades.  The former world champ, who earned the nickname “The Road Warrior” for never shying away from challenging an opponent on his home turf, will once again travel to enemy territory for a shot at a championship.

The winner of Bute-Johnson could likely meet the winner of the Super Six World Boxing Classic, which concludes on Saturday, Dec. 17, on SHOWTIME. World champions Andre Ward (World Boxing Association) and Carl Froch (World Boxing Council) will clash in the Final of the Super Six in a showdown that will determine the world’s best 168-pound fighter.
