Lucian Bute To Train in Florida

Boxing star Lucian Bute will host his upcoming training camp at the Palm Beach Boxing Center in Palm Beach, FL.
Bute, 33-1 (24 KO’s), is one of the biggest ticket draws in boxing and held the IBF Super Middleweight crown for more than four years. A Quebec native by way of Romania , Bute defeated unbeaten Denis Grachev for the NABF Light Heavyweight championship in front of a sold out crowd at the Bell Centre last November.
A 12,000 sq ft facility that is quickly becoming one of boxing’s hotspots, the Palm Beach Boxing Center’s held camps for world champions Devon Alexander, Cory Spinks and Nate Campbell as well as 2008 Olympian Matt Korobov. The gym’s also hosted Andre Dirrell, Kassim Ouma, Riddick Bowe, Jameel McCline and Oleg Maskaev amongst others.
Bute, who opens camp Tuesday, March 26 for his mega-fight against fellow Canadian transplant Jean Pascal, is training for the fourth time at the Palm Beach Boxing Center. Prior to his last camp, Bute sent a truck with a ring down from his gym in Canada to Palm Beach , a sign that he plans to continue training in Florida . He’s also received much fanfare in the Sunshine State .
“I’m happy to have him back hosting camp at the gym,” said Palm Beach Boxing Center Owner Lou Martinez. “Lucian is very comfortable here and he’s a great guy. There’s a lot of interest when we host open training sessions. The French-Canadians of Florida love watching him and definitely make him feel like he’s at home.”
Joining Bute and Trainer Stephan Larouche will be the 2012 Canadian Women’s Olympic Boxing Team. Trained by Larouche’s wife, the Olympic Team will train at the Palm Beach Boxing Club and workout with the top female fighters in the area.
“These next few months are going to be exciting,” stated Martinez . “Between Bute and the Olympians, there’s going to be a lot of quality fighters coming in and out of the gym. It will be an excellent experience for everybody involved and it’s my pleasure to host them.”
In addition to boxing, the Palm Beach Boxing Center ’s 12,000 sq ft facility serves as a training facility for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai.
