Lucian Bute: I Want Carl Froch To Win, It's Personal!

By Bill Emes

Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City - IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (30-0, 24KOs) is pulling for Carl Froch to defeat Andre Ward in their 168-pound unification later tonight. Bute, who plans to sit ringside, is upset with some of the comments Froch made about his record and his ability. However, Bute views it as a very tough task for Froch to accomplish.

"[I give the edge to] Andre Ward [because of] his ability and skills, his legs, his speed. But, one punch can change the fight. I want Carl Froch to win this fight. It's personal [between us], but it's difficult for him to win," Bute told BoxingScene.com.

"I'm not surprised with the trash talking of Froch about me. The talking will end when I see him in the ring. The ring is talking and I'm going to beat him when we fight together."

Too bad I wanted Froch to win as well. Bute needs to fight Ward for Super Middleweight supremacy now! :boxing:

After tonight I think Ward spanks Bute easily. Too fast and too tough. If Ward could take Frochs punches and not look bothered then Bute has no chance.
