Former super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (31-2, 24KOs) is making some changes. The 34-year-old boxer, once considered to be one of the best fighters in the world, has lost two of his last three fights. He was blown out by Carl Froch in five rounds in May of 2012, returned in November to decision Denis Grachev, and then moved up to light heavyweight in January to lose a twelve round decision to Canadian rival Jean Pascal.

After more than a decade of being together, Bute has parted ways with Stephan Larouche and the search is underway for a new coach. Larouche trained Bute since he moved from Romania to Canada to turn pro in 2003.

"I'm 34 and I think I still have things that I can accomplish in boxing. I do not want to have any regrets. I want to at least give myself the chance to try it in another environment," Bute told RDS.

Bute should really just retire. I always knew he was a hype job but his last performance against Pascal was embarrassing to say the least and his confidence after Froch was destroyed.

Can't blame Laruche for leaving Bute. Bute didn't do a thing he asked in that fight, and fought scared. He's likely done and really never beat anyone at the top.

[QUOTE=lutenco]Right move IMO. After get exposed since ANDRADE,the trainer changed nothing indeed!!![/QUOTE] Andrade exposed him? Lol. He was destroying him until the last moments of the bout. That's like saying JCC Jr exposed Martinez with that 12th round facade.
