Bute: I Would Knock Froch Out, I'll Fight Ward in NYC!

By Bill Emes

IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (30-0, 24KOs) has no problem with traveling over to the United States to face WBA/WBC champion Andre Ward (25-0, 13KOs) to settle the issue as to which of them is the best boxer at 168-pounds. The unbeaten boxer is not impressed with Carl Froch, who did a lot of trash talking about Bute in the last couple of weeks. Bute sat ringside at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, and watched Ward secure a dominating twelve round unanimous decision over Froch.

"I would knock [Froch] out. When I fought [Brian] Magee I stopped him in ten rounds and Froch stopped him in eleven rounds. When he fought Glen Johnson, one judge thought it was a draw, 114-114, and when I fought Johnson I won very clearly. For Ward, maybe it's possible to fight him in New York, in New York City is an option. I'm also ready to go to his backyard [of Oakland]," Bute told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=slindee3;11575385]With Ward's win last night Bute is no longer the guy to beat. He will have to negotiate on Ward's terms and Ward is not going to fight him in Canada. So somewhere in America it is.[/QUOTE] Bute is the…
