Butler, Bazinyan and Ulysse have all a great potential, and you will certainly see them in action in USA in boxing shows organized by Golden Boy Promotions. Oscar De La Hoya will work to organize significant bouts for Butler, Bazinyan and Ulysse, to improved their chances to take part eventually to a world championship bout.
