Froch: Bute is probably brave and stupid

Former WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch said IBF champion Lucian Bute is making a big mistake to face him on his home turf. “He’s probably brave and stupid, a bit of both, to come here,” Froch said at today’s weigh-in. “He’s looking at my last fight against Ward and is thinking ‘maybe Froch is finished, he’s coming off the back of a loss.’ I don’t know what he’s thinking in his mind but I just think he’s got the safety net of a rematch clause and he’s stepping up now to this level. Does he know he can do it or not? I’m not so sure if he’s convinced. He’ll be feeling the nerves and the pressure. He’s got a lot to prove and he’s got it all to do on Saturday against me in my hometown. It’s going to be very difficult for him to get a win in Nottingham.”
