Bute looking to dethrone Britain’s DeGale


QUEBEC CITY: Britain’s James DeGale defends his International Boxing Federation super middleweight title on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) against former champion Lucian Bute in a showdown of southpaws at the Romanian’s home base of Canada. DeGale, 21-1 with 14 knockouts, seeks his 12th win in a row in the first defense of the vacant crown he seized by edging American Andre Dirrell by unanimous decision last May. Bute, six years older than his rival at 35, has a 32-2 mark with 25 knockouts.
