Team Bute: No Cloud or Pavlik; Pascal-Cloud in 2012

By Rick Reeno

Don Majeski, matchmaker for IBF 168-pound champion Lucian Bute, told BoxingScene.com that Bute (29-0, 24KOs) is not going to face the IBF's 175-pound champion, Tavoris Cloud (23-0, 19KOs), on November 5th. In an earlier report on BoxingScene, Cloud's trainer Al Bonani stated that Majeski reached out to explore a possible Bute-Cloud encounter for the fall. No chance, says Majeski - and Kelly Pavlik is no longer a consideration after turning down a guarantee of $1.35 million dollars.

"Lucian Bute is waiting to fight the winner of the Super Six. Bute is not looking to move up in weight," Majeski told BoxingScene.com.

Majeski, who also works alongside former light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (26-2, 16KOs), advised BoxingScene that Cloud was a strong possibility for a January fight.

There has to be someone good Bute can fight like Kessler or Dirrell, I refuse to accept anymore that he can't find a good opponent like Johnson or even Stieglitz because they are occupied so then he just fights another…

Bute should wait for the winner of the super six anyway it's what we all want see at 168.

Bute needs to sit tight. Kessler in a unification 1st would be good after he beats Sartison. The winner of that face the winner of S6.
