MANILA, Philippines—While Paul Butler blasted John Riel Casimero, the case isn’t the same with regard to rising Filipino bantamweight Jonas Sultan.

“Good fighter, strong fighter,” Butler said of Sultan in an interview with Probellum posted on Wednesday. “He’s beaten Casimero so he’s shown his level there. He’s a bullish fighter.”


Sultan has been tapped to step in and fight Butler with Casimero out due to a violation of the British Boxing Board of Control’s medical guidelines for using a sauna to make weight ahead of a bout.


Butler (33-2, 15KOs) and Sultan (18-5, 11KOs) clash for the interim WBO bantamweight title on Saturday (Manila time) in Liverpool, England—in a fight the English expects to assert his might.

“He’s really good but there’s weaknesses and I’ve spotted them straight away. His weaknesses are my strengths,” Butler, winner of seven in a row, said.

“It will be a dominant performance. We’ve worked really hard. It doesn’t matter what’s in front of me. I do believe we haven’t seen the best of me. Sultan will probably bring that out on (Saturday).”
