Nottingham Arena, Nottingham - Carl Froch (29-2, 21KOs) became a three time world champion when he stopped previously undefeated Lucian Bute (30-1, 24KOs) in five rounds to capture the IBF super middleweight title.

Froch made it look easy and never took a step back. He often backed Bute up against the ropes and unloaded combinations. He confirmed two things on Saturday night - Bute doesn't take a good punch, but the Canadian star is capable of throwing a good punch.

Froch confirms the overseas praise of Bute's highly regarded power, admitting the now former champion has some fire in his shots. The Nottingham star displayed his well known granite chin and was never seriously hurt in the contest.

"I could not afford to be lazy and flat-footed. Big respect to Lucian, he can punch, and he hit me with some good shots in there. But I came back," Froch said.

"I was very switched on, focused and determined. I came here to do a job. If it had gone 12 rounds it would have been 12 rounds of that. I was on it.

My man Carl froch!!! A real man's fighter!! Hated him in the beginning but now he's one of my faves. Win, lose or draw a fighter like him deserves respect as he fears no man. Rematch with kessler should be huge!!

[QUOTE=underground man]as if boxing judges of all people are infallible. any boxing fan worth his salt should be able to decide fight winners for himself.[/QUOTE] Yes, but you cant say that because of your opinion the only decent fights is this and that. The record books show the W's and L's, ...

[QUOTE=Sage84]Its not really your opinion that counts though is it mate. The judges decided both fights, get over it.[/QUOTE] as if boxing judges of all people are infallible. any boxing fan worth his salt should be able to decide fight winners for himself.

[QUOTE=boxingmanic]Fair play to Froch, I thought he would lose, but I underestimated the inability of Bute to take a half decent shot. Only fights out there are rematches with Kessler and Dirrell (in a neutral venue). He lost both IMO. No point going after Ward, he will get schooled again.[...
