Froch: Bute Has Fought Mostly Hand Picked Opponents

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

CARL FROCH has warned Lucian Bute he will not be able to cope without home comforts on Saturday.

The Briton challenges IBF super-middleweight champion Bute in his first fight since losing a world title unification fight on points to American Andre Ward in December.

Froch, 34, will try to become a world champion for a third time while Romania-born Canadian Bute, 32, has made ten defences of his IBF title – all at home and Froch insists the unbeaten champ has had it easy.

And former WBC champion Froch believes Bute will find the atmosphere in front of 10,000 fired-up fans at the Nottingham Arena so intimidating it will put him off his game.

He said: “He’s IBF world champion and unbeaten, which is not easy to do. He’s answered every question of him. But he’s had quite an easy career and fought in his home town mostly, against hand-picked opponents.

“I’ve not had it like that, I’ve fought the best and away from home, so I have even more experience at the top level.

“It’s definitely an advantage boxing at home for this one.”

[SIZE="3"]Froch rather stating the obvious, but he is right. Hopefully he gets the victory as I have no use for Bute and his name coming up in potential match ups with Dawson, Ward, Kessler etc,. Take his ass out of…

Dirrell didn't get the nod over Froch, Bute won't either. However IMO, no matter where this fight is at, I see Froch winning.
