Grachev: I Will Pressure Bute, Eventually Break Him!

By Ruslan Chikov

Russian light heavyweight Denis Grachev (12-0-1, 8KOs) is ready to once again shock the boxing experts when he meets former super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (30-1, 24KOs) on November 3rd at the Bell Centre in Montreal. They will fight at a catch-weight of 170-pounds.

Bute returns from a devastating fifth round knockout to Carl Froch, while Grachev is coming back from the biggest win of his career - a shocking eight round knockout of highly regarded unbeaten light heavyweight Ismayl Sillakh.

Grachev has studied tapes and watched how Froch applied pressure in the first round and Bute was not able to withstand it. He plans to do the same next week because he wants to avoid the possibility of a hometown decision.

"I believe, beating Bute [in Montreal] will not be easy for me. I will constantly increase the pressure on my opponent and eventually break him. And the judges are likely going to be on his side - so I'll try to finish the fight early," Grachev said.

That would be crazy if Grachev stopped Bute. He would be my personal fighter of the year.

The question mark is Bute's mental state going in affter Froch bludgeoned him. One loss like that can ruin a guy so less talented guys like Grachev may take it to him. Bute is clearly a better boxer, but Grachev…

[QUOTE=Alpha & Omega;12641813]I am glad people are not writing Bute off over that Froch loss. Bute lost that fight before he got into the ring, that fight was all wrong. He did not want to be there, he wasn't comfortable,…
