Canadian junior welterweight sensation Steve Claggett is all set to throw down with the power-punching Miguel Madueno on Tuesday, Nov. 14. This electrifying fight headlines the night at Casino De Montreal, stretching over 10 rounds. We’re talking big stakes here – the NABF and NABO titles. Claggett, hailing from Calgary, is riding high on a seven-fight winning spree, looking to notch number eight. But wait, let’s not forget the co-main event. Steven Butler, a middleweight warrior who’s faced the world twice for the title, is itching to climb back up after a tumble. He’s squaring off against Iron Alvarez in another 10-rounder. Expect sparks to fly! The whole shebang, promoted by Eye of the Tiger, including the Claggett-Madueno headline and the Butler-Alvarez clash, plus a handful of undercard bouts, is streaming live. Catch it exclusively in the U.S. on ESPN+, kicking off at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
Steve Claggett (36-7-2, 25 KOs) has been in the game for 15 years. The guy’s unbeatable since 2021 and has already bagged a couple of stoppages this year. He snatched the NABF title in June, knocking out former champ Alberto Machado in the third round, and then outclassed Carlos Sanchez in September. Miguel Madueno (30-1, 28 KOs), on the other flip of the coin, is a knockout artist with a three-fight KO streak, bouncing back from a loss last November to Jezreel Corrales, another ex-world champ. Montreal’s own Steven Butler (32-4-1, 26 KOs) is making a comeback after a rough second-round KO from WBO middleweight champ Janibek Alimkhanuly in May. Before that hiccup, Butler was on a four-fight roll, all on home turf. His opponent, Iron Alvarez (32-14-4, 21 KOs), a 14-year pro, just secured a win over Damian Sosa, who was sitting pretty at 22-1 at the time.
