Indigo to carry Bute-Brinkley and Diaconu-Sheika fights

Montréal, October 12, 2010 – Indigo will broadcast the return of Lucian Bute (26-0-0, 21 KO) live at 7 p.m. on October 15, 2010. Bute will be defending his IBF Super Middleweight belt for the sixth time against Jesse Brinkley (35-5-0, 22 KO) of the U.S. The still-undefeated Romanian-born boxer will be entering the ring before his Montréal fans six months after successfully defending his title against Edison Miranda.

Preceding the title bout, there will be six fights on the undercard, including the eagerly anticipated match-up between Romanian-born Adrian “The Shark” Diaconu (26-2-0, 15 KO) of Montréal and Omar Sheika (30-9-0, 21 KO) of the U.S. After two straight losses to Jean Pascal, Diaconu will be gunning for a win in his bid to earn a rematch with the WBC Light Heavyweight champ.

Indigo’s coverage will begin with the 4-6 round fight between Quebecers Francy N’Tetu (4 0 0, 1 KO) and Martin Desjardins (7-16-4, 3 KO) in the super middleweight category, followed by the clash between lightweights Pier-Olivier Côté (12-0-0, 7 KO) of Québec and Walter Sergio Gomez (23-9-1, 11 KO) of Argentina. In the welterweight division, Ionut (JoJo) Dan Ion (26-1-0, 14 KO) of Romania will take on Andres Pablo Villafane (16-5-3, 5 KO) of Argentina, and in the super featherweight category Benoît Gaudet (22-2-0, 9 KO) of Quebec will battle Ceferino Dario Labarda (19-2-0, 7 KO) of Argentina.
