Froch vs Bute Undercard: Frampton, Cote, Ochieng, More

Carl Frampton will provide the chief support on the undercard of Carl Froch’s IBF World super middleweight title challenge to Lucian Bute in Nottingham on May 26.

The Commonwealth super bantamweight champion will fight at the Capital FM Arena in front of a huge global audience with the event aired by EPIX in the United States and live in more than 20 countries across the world, including the UK, Canada, Spain, Germany, Russia, Japan and in Scandinavia.

The unbeaten 25 year old defended his Commonwealth title for the second time in Sheffield on March 17 with a second round knockout of Ghanaian Prosper Ankrah, following his explosive win over Kris Hughes at York Hall, Bethnal Green in January with a knockout of the year contending right hand in the seventh.

It’s a stacked undercard of young talent with Islington’s Erick ‘The Eagle’ Ochieng defending his English light middleweight title against Nottingham’s AA Lowe, who landed the shot at Ochieng after beating fellow Nottinghamshire fighter Terry Maughan with a fourth round stoppage to claim the British Masters title.

International flavour is added by Bute’s fellow Canadian Pier Olivier Cote and the IBF Inter-Continental light welterweight champion will face Wolverhampton’s Mark Lloyd as Cote fights for the first time in the UK.

Islington’s exciting middleweight star John Ryder is looking to move to 11-0 and faces a tough night against Yorkshire’s Luke Robinson, and fellow Matchroom Sport fighter Ryan Aston also fights on the bill.

Team GB star Scotty Cardle will make his third pro outing and local fighters Leigh Wood and Adnan Amar will also taste the action on a huge night of top class action in their city.

“It’s a great line-up and another chance for Carl Frampton to get massive exposure,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “The unbeaten super bantamweight star heads an exciting undercard group alongside Erick Ochieng, Pier Olivier Cote, John Ryder, Ryan Aston and Scotty Cardle, who will provide plenty of entertainment to a global TV audience before the mouth-watering main event.”

[QUOTE=gingeralbino;12010506]please ffs be Kiko, he fought last month, and doesnt have an opponent lined up that i know of.[/QUOTE] That would be nice, but I dont think is the case. Maybe Hyland? Parody? Or a nobody.

Cote is one of the best 140 pounders in the world. He is an exciting, brutal puncher.
