Froch: Bute is going to get beat

By Karl Freitag

Former world champion Carl “The Cobra” Froch (28-2, 20 KOs) gives unbeaten IBF super middleweight champion Lucuan Bute (30-0, 24 KOs) credit for traveling to hostile territory to face him in his hometown of Nottingham on Saturday, but also vows that Bute will be going home with his first loss. “I promise that I’m going to beat Bute,” Froch said last week during a conference call with reporters. “He’s coming over here. He’s going to get beat. I’m going to be IBF champ. I’m going to do everything I can to make sure I win that belt.”

As for Bute coming to face Froch in Froch’s own backyard, ‘The Cobra’ stated, “I think he’s had to do that now. He’s been in the position to make ten title defenses and I think they’ve all been in Canada or North America. So, he’s never really traveled away. I think he fought in Romania early on in his career, but he’s never been on the road and defended his title like champions are supposed to do….and let’s not forget he’s got the rematch clause in the back of his mind, what it might be, might not be. I don’t know well enough to say what he’s thinking. But he’s probably got the comfort of the safety net of knowing that if he gets beat he’s got the rematch back in his hometown Montreal.”
