Lucian Bute: My Fight Won't Be Like Klitschko vs Haye

By Ruslan Chikov

IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute promised to make Saturday defense in Romania very exciting - unlike last Saturday's heavyweight unification between Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye, which left many disappointed over the lack of action. Bute will face undefeated French boxer Jean-Paul Mendy. Bute has knocked out his last five opponents. Bute also denied reports that he's already looking ahead to a possible fall clash with former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik.

"I'm making a promise to you that on Saturday it's going to be a spectacular match, not like the one between Klitschko and Haye. My goal is to win and to keep my belt. I prepared very seriously for two months and the only thing in my head is Jean-Paul Mendy, "said Bute.

Mendy promised to shock the champion at the Romexpo in Bucharest.

"We came to win the belt, not to be figurative. I don't consider it an obstacle that we're fighting in Lucian's country. We are professionals and you have to go up against all types of conditions," Mendy said.

Great you passed the 'exciting' test that every up and comer passes while coming up fighting bums, only that they're not in there 30's hen they're fighting bums. Now maybe after this fight you will be in more competitive fights.

Bute is another Berto when it comes to how cowardly they are.

Mendy was just about to be ktfo by Bika. It was just a silly Bika mistake that got Mendy the DQ win. You will look good because you are fighting a nobody Bute.
