BoxingScene.com was advised that some early discussions have taken place to make a fight between undefeated WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch and top contender Allan Green.
Green's team had been in talks for a fight with IBF champion Lucian Bute. Contrary to information reported elsewhere, I hear Green "pricing himself out" had nothing to do with the fight falling apart.
I've heard the main stumbling block had to do with Bute's mandatory Librado Andrade. The winner of Bute-Green would have had to fight Andrade next. Showtime had in interest Bute-Green but I hear the network was not interested in making a commitment to purchase the fight between Andrade and the winner. From the word going around, Bute's people are lining up Joey Spina for his next fight.
