By Edward Chaykovsky

The president of Sportscene and InterBox, Jean Bédard, made it very clear - IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute will not chase after, or wait around, for a unification with Super Six tournament winner Andre Ward. After Ward recently decisioned Carl Froch to unify the WBA/WBC titles, he was challenged by Bute. Bedard was advised by Ward's promoter, Dan Goossen, of their intentions to pursue other opportunities.

"Ward and his promoter were clear, he is looking for a an easier fight and he is not ready for Lucian. We are certainly not going to run after him all year. We have other options," Bedard said.

While Ward (25-0, 13 KOs) is out of the mix, the most likely option right now is Carl Froch (28-2, 20 KOs). Bute (30-0, 24 KOs) and his team are interested in facing Froch as soon as possible.

[QUOTE=LeadUppercut]Excellent, Froch it is then. The champ will tell Bute when/where to fight when he is ready. Ward has never ducked anyone, so Bute will get his shot if he stays relevant. It aint gonna hurt him to get a decent defense on his record, thats for sure.[/QUOTE] It's the ...
