By Ruslan Chikov

Super middleweight contender Jean Paul Mendy is "very confident" that Lucian Bute will never make it to a fall clash with Kelly Pavlik. Mendy will attempt to capture Bute's IBF championship on July 9 at the Romexpo Exhibition Centre in Bucharest. Mendy has no fear of facing the champion at home.

"I fear nothing. Not Lucian Bute, or Romania, which is a country I've known for a while and I like very much," Mendy said. "The presence of a hostile crowd will encourage me more to give everything in the ring. This is the most important match of my life. Bute is a great boxer, with many qualities and defects. I made ​​a plan on how to fight him. Do you think that I would even bother flying to Romania if I were not confident? I'm very confident! I will win the match!"
