On February 23, the Colisée Desjardins in Victoriaville will be the stage of the Quebec-Ontario rivalry as Montrealer Steven Butler and Torontonian Steve Rolls face off in the finals of Eye of the Tiger’s first event in the region.

Presented in association with the Tigres de Victoriaville and Di Bella Entertainment, the evening will be broadcast on

After making changes to his training regimen, Steven Butler (33-4-1, 27 KOs) returned to victory in his fight against Ivan Alvarez, stopping him in the 9th round last November 14th. With the help of his new trainer John Scully, nicknamed “Bang Bang” and currently ranked 1st in the 160 lb category in Canada, Butler aims to continue his progress and reclaim the top spot in the middleweight division, starting with fellow Canadian Steve Rolls.

Toronto’s Rolls (22-3, 12 KOs) has a solid track record since his professional debut, having faced some of the biggest names in the division such as Gennady Golovkin and Edgar Berlanga. Last September, he lost by unanimous decision in his bout against the powerful southpaw Austin Williams.

Also at a turning point in his career, Rolls will undoubtedly give his all against Butler to demonstrate that he still belongs in the division.
