“Brewer is not only a boxer, but also an active boxer who can get us through some tough rounds. The objective is to see if Steven can be as efficient in the last rounds while keeping the same intensity as at the start of the fight. We have to make sure of that by having a quality opponent and I believe that will be the case,” Butler’s coach Rénald Boisvert said in a statement.

“I am more determined than ever to continue my climb to the top. It’s nothing personal, but I intend to hurt Brewer on June 23. He’s on my way and I want to keep moving forward,” said Butler.
