Steven Butler will face Patrice Volny on June 6

After several years of waiting, Quebec boxing fans will be spoiled on June 6 at the Cabaret du Casino de Montréal, when Steven Butler (34-4-1, 28 KO) will face his local rival Patrice Volny (18-1, 12 KO). This 100% Quebec duel is scheduled for 10 rounds, and the WBC Francophone middleweight title will be at stake. The winner will therefore be able to hope to return to the world rankings.

This is probably one of the most interesting local duels of recent years in Quebec. It will pit the hitter, Butler, and the technician, Volny. Both have previously boxed against elite opponents. Steven fought in the world championship against the Japanese Ryota Murata and the Kazakh Zhanibek Alimkhanuly. Patrice performed very well against the Brazilian Esquiva Falcao. This confrontation was therefore eventually inevitable.

“It’s nothing personal, but our paths cross. I'm just going to show everyone who is the king of the mountain at 160 pounds in Quebec,” explained the man who is coming back from an explosive victory against another local rival, Steve Rolls.

Volny, for his part, preferred a shorter quote and to keep his words for the ring: “They don't call me 'Vicious' for nothing”.

An interesting undercard will also be presented by the Quebec promoter. Current IBO super middleweight champion Osleys Iglesias (10-0, 9 KOs) will make his return to the ring after an explosive victory over Marcelo Coceres. In addition, the native of the Quebec region, Leila Beaudoin (11-1, 1 KO), will also be in action after a victory on January 13 at the Videotron Center. EOTTM's new signing, Arthur Biyarslanov (14-0, 12 KO), will box for a second time in less than 3 months.

To open the gala, prospects Jhon Orobio (7-0, 7 KOs) and Fendero (4-0, 3 KOs) will return as they try to continue their knockout winning streaks.
