PAUL WILLIAMS Take 2 - From the desk of Brian J. Kennedy

December 12, 2006

Berry Butler from Greenville, SC, fights Sam Reese on Thursday, December 14th in Hallandale Beach, Florida.

Butler has a deceiving record of 21-12 with 18 knockouts, while veteran spoiler Reese has a record of 22-15-4 with 8 knockouts.

The fight, which takes place at the Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino, is part of the first round of the IBA Light Heavyweight Tournament.

Also on the card is Danny Santiago taking on Marlon Hayes, this fight is part of the first round as well.

The tournament is considered a stepping stone, with the winner to get a crack at one of the major world titles.

With a winning streak spanning 9 fights, Berry "Killa Bee" Butler has been on quite a tear. In his last 4 fights he has beaten respectable fighters with a combined record of 62-8-4 and has done so in their respective hometowns.

Butler fights with a wealth of experience gained in fighting world class opposition and many years of sparring with the best European World Champions. Fighters such as Sven Ottke, Arthur Abraham, Markus Beyer, and Thomas Ulrich, to name a few.

A testimony to his talent and skill is the fact that none of these so called World Champions would ever risk their titles against him.

It has been a long journey for Berry Butler to get where he is today, on the verge of cracking the Top Ten and securing that elusive title shot. He knows that a misstep here could be a major set-back.

But then again this is a man that has come back from adversity many times before, proof being that he once sported a record of 11-12.

Fearless and determined are two good words to describe Berry Butler, he has persevered in boxing since his debut in 1992 and has done so on his terms.

We should expect nothing but his best in this fight and while Sam Reese is no pushover, look for Butler to win in spectacular fashion as he continues on his quest for respect and financial security.

After all, this is prizefighting.
