Butler of Brooklyn, New York, has a record of 3-0 with two wins coming via knockout.

I feel this is a great opportunity. It gives me stability to get fights, and have a good promoter behind me. I know Rodney believes in me. I am excited for what the future brings and holds,” Said Butler

Said Rodney Rice, CEO of RDR Promotions, “I am happy to sign Raekwon. I had heard great things about him, and he lived up to them when he fought in our show in July. We plan to keep him busy and develop him into the prospect and champion that I know he can be.”

The 26 year-old Butler fought three-times in eight months, as he turned professional with 2nd round stoppage over John Larkins on December 11, 2021 in Charleston, South Carolina.

Butler is coming off a four-round unanimous decision over 25 fight veteran Dieumerci Nzau on July 23rd in Philadelphia.
