FORMER world super-middleweight champion Lucian Bute is brimming with confidence ahead of his WBC light-heavyweight eliminator against Eleider Alvarez this Friday.

Bute will meet unbeaten Alvarez at the Centre Videotron in Quebec City, Canada. The fight is being shown on pay-per-view in Canada and on an internet PPV service in the United States.

Having won just two of his last six fights, the 36-year-old finds himself in the last-chance saloon but believes he will prevail against top-rated contender Alvarez.
