THURSDAY: Steven Butler-Patrice Volny Middleweight Showdown to Stream LIVE & Exclusively in the U.S. on ESPN+

(June 4, 2024) — Two-time world title challenger Steven Butler faces countryman Patrice Volny in the 10-round middleweight main event this Thursday, June 6, at Casino de Montreal in Montreal, Canada.  

Promoted by Eye of The Tiger, Butler-Volny and undercard bouts will stream live and exclusively in the U.S. on ESPN+ starting at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT.

Butler (34-4-1, 28 KOs), a 10-year veteran, challenged Ryota Murata for the WBA middleweight world title in December 2019. After a setback against Jose de Jesus Macias in January 2021, he rebounded with four straight victories, including a second-round TKO versus Mark DeLuca. The 28-year-old suffered a stoppage loss in his second bid for a world title against WBO champ Janibek Alimkhanuly last May, but he recovered by vanquishing Ivan Alvarez in nine rounds in November. In March, he authored a brutal first-round knockout against Steve Rolls. Volny (18-1, 12 KOs) has scored two wins via the fast route since his only defeat, a 2021 technical decision against Esquiva Falcao. He bounced back in May 2023 with a third-round TKO against Abraham Juarez Ramirez before stopping DeAndre Ware in 10 rounds in February.
