Hi Arnie,

Had a look under all his aliases and can't find a find on him. He's like Lord Lucan...

He claims he won the Commonwealth in 5th fight yet on Boxrec it's his 9th. There's pics of him where he looks totally different to others.

He trains supposedly in Fight Square Gym in Accra, Ghana. Even though he's Nigerian..

Only thing i can think is contact Dean Powell and ask him to get hold of Prosper Ankrah and ask his people. Ankrah fought Frampton.

“I know that Butler is a good boxer who has been unbeaten in nine professional fights and just last November he won the British belt, but I can assure you that I will not be taking any chances against him.

“I am confident that come March, 8, I will beat him before his home fans and prepare myself for a crack at the world title,” Kareem said.

I remember Billy Nelson mentioning in an interview before Burns was due to fight Jose Ocampo that he has a mate down here who has thousands of DVD's on various fighters, he did say he only had 2 rounds on Ocampo though, so he might not have anything on Kareem, but its probably worth a try.

Jamie Conlans team couldn't find any footage of him also, as I'm sure your aware he was due to box Kareem next week at the Odyssey until W@rren moved in and poached the kid to box Butler for his own show. BTW do you think Butler could come to Belfast to defend against Conlan, would be a good fight, real barnstormer.

Thanks Skills, Ishy and the rest of you, appreciate the help and support. Why would we come to Ireland to defend against Conlon? he will have to come to us!

If he wants to be on Sky, he will have to come to Belfast, the Conlan/Robinson fight is also an eliminator for Bulters British belt, so once Eddie wins the purse bids for that match up, Bulter will have to come to Belfast.
