Carl Froch: Fighting Bute in Montreal Will Inspire Me

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Carl Froch was not impressed by Lucian Bute's victory over Denis Grachev - and is planning to give the Canadian "another pasting" if they meet again.

Fighting for the first time since he lost his IBF super-middleweight title to Froch in Nottingham, Bute battled his way to a unanimous points win over tough Russian Grachev in Montreal on Saturday night.

The result sets up the likelihood of the Romanian-born 32-year-old getting the chance to avenge the only loss of his professional career next year, only this time he will have home advantage.

But Froch - who will defend his belt against Yusuf Mack on November 17 isn't bothered about having to go overseas for the rematch.

Froch, who confirmed that he would likely face Bute in either March or April of next year, is no stranger to fighting on the road and has previously travelled to Europe and the United States for fights.

"In Nottingham I had my home crowd and I had the advantage of all the home comforts. It was all very much in my favour," the 'Cobra' added. "But there was pressure and a different expectation - I was coming off the back of my own loss (to Andre Ward), so there were demons as well in there.

"I believe going on the road to Montreal will inspire me. I've been on the road to box many times - I've been to Denmark, Finland, Connecticut and Atlantic City twice. It's not a really daunting prospect to go over to Montreal and face Bute. This is someone I've beaten before and I'm very confident."
