On Saturday night, April 30, WBC super middleweight champion Badou Jack retained his title as he settled for a draw with former longtime IBF titlist Lucian Bute inside of the Armory in Washington, D.C.

Jack (20-1-2, 12 KO’s) appeared to do enough to secure a victory, with one judge giving him a 117-111 edge. That tally was overruled by two 114-114 scorecards, however, as Jack retains his title and could be meeting IBF champion James DeGale later this year in a unification match.
