Froch Not Impressed: Hopes to give Bute another Pasting!
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch was not impressed by Lucian Bute's victory over Denis Grachev on Saturday night, and he expects to batter Bute in their planned March/April 2013 rematch. Bute was stopped by Froch in five rounds in May, and returned on Saturday night in Montreal to win a twelve round decision over Grachev. Froch will defend his belt against Yusuf Mack on November 17 in Nottingham.

"Let's be honest, it wasn't the most impressive performance from Lucian Bute that I've ever seen," he told Sky Sports. "It wasn't vintage by any stretch of the imagination. Bute didn't really impress, but it was a comeback fight from a devastating defeat against myself, so what did people expect? He needed to find his feet again, find his confidence. I'm sure he's done that. I think mentally he needed to get that fight in the bag.

"He's got the win and done what he needed to do to re-establish himself. Now I'm hoping the rematch will happen. It's his chance to try and get back the IBF world title I took from him, but he'll have the home advantage this time. As a team, we're hoping he takes the fight so I can go out there and give him another pasting."

"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."

So strange. Bute is screwed if he fights Froch again because he will most likely get knocked out again. Cobra is in a similar boat because he will most likely get outclassed again if he fights Ward. So bizarre considering how it all looked just a year ago. [QUOTE=Clegg]The current plan would s...

Froch took Bute's soul last time out, and made him a completely gun shy, shattered version of himself. Grachev isn't a pushover by any means, but he was there to be hit the entire night and Bute couldn't pull the trigger. Can't wait to see Froch destroy that protected regional champ again.

No need for a rematch Froch will end Bute career if they fight again.

Froch would destroy Bute in a rematch. As far as Stevenson is concerned, they both don't want a piece of him. Very heavy handed, southpaw and he is unknown outside of Montreal.

comment by Clegg, on 11-04-2012
The current plan would see Froch getting stripped for rematching Bute, while Adonis Stevenson gets to fight for the vacant title. Perhaps a better idea would be to do Bute-Stevenson with the winner facing Froch. For Bute it'd be another confidence-builder against a guy who is less likely to knoc...
