Bute Disputes That He Has Any Issues With His Chin

By Luke Furman

Canadian super middleweight Lucian Bute (30-1, 24KOs) received five stitches above his left eye, a product of the beating that he took from Carl Froch on Saturday night in Nottingham.  Froch (29-2, 21KOs) stopped Bute in five rounds to capture the IBF championship at 168-pounds.

There have been questions about Bute's chin and some wondered whether he was capable of taking a punch. He seemed bothered by every hard punch that Froch was able to land. Yet, the Canadian star disputes that there are any problems with his ability to take a punch.

"If I had no chin, I think I would have went down earlier in the fight. It was a very tough loss, but I'm okay. It's a very tough defeat, but I'm okay. It's part of boxing. All great fighters have lost. It is not the end of the world. For now, I need a few weeks to get a good rest. Training camp was hard and long. I'll take three weeks to a month off and after that we'll discuss what's next. But I keep my head up high. I will return," Bute said.

Why are people saying Froch hits hard? He has above average power at best. He breaks you down with volume,pressure and intensity, not power. bute has more power than froch

[QUOTE=Main Source;12180452]In the first fight with Andrade it was due to fatigue. He was seriously exhausted. [/QUOTE] This is another myth busted. Bute seems to loose his legs when hurt. Call it what you want, he can be easily hurt…

[QUOTE=JKidd2624;12178888]This is the second time he's been KO'ed as a professional and third I know of (Golovkin KO'ed him in the amateurs)... so I'd say he's got some chin problems. The only reason, IMO, this hasn't happened more to him…

[QUOTE=kenso;12178454]Froch hits hard, Bute didn't even go down. I don't think Bute has a problem with his chin - rather, he has a problem reacting to getting hit. He has a problem with pressure. The chin argument is dumb in…
