Despite a 30-1 record with 24 KOs and 10 world title defenses, the Canadian Press isn’t going easy on former IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute after suffering his first loss in May against Carl Froch. “Suspect chin,” and “tattered reputation” are a few of the expressions used to describe Bute in an article published today by CP. Regardless of harsh criticisms, Bute remains one of the best and most exciting super middleweights in the fight game today. And to his credit, Bute didn’t choose an easy touch for his comeback fight in unbeaten Denis Grachev, who knocked out previously unbeaten #2 rated light heavyweight Ismayl Sillakh in his previous fight.

As he roams across the canvas in a near empty gym, former world champion Lucian Bute is dwarfed by a shadow that looms over the entire ring. Every jab, every power punch, there is an omnipresent presence dominating the landscape of this concrete bunker that has produced its fair share of world champions and is hoping for its first two-time champion as Bute makes his first step back from a devastating loss to Carl Froch this past spring and enters the Bell Centre ring this Saturday making the first step towards redemption against undefeated Denis Grachev (12-0-1 8KO) in a bout that can be seen on WealthTV and WealthTV.com.
That presence is one of Bute himself, a huge stadium sized banner brought back from his native Romania and one that dwarfs the ring and is almost symbolic of how big the affable southpaw had become.
For thirty fights, things were good. Very good. Full houses, premium cable television, nine title defenses, a definite ‘vedette’ or star in his adopted homeland of Quebec. For thirty fights, he was….huge. Banner sized huge. Then it came crashing down in a hurry against Froch who was initially viewed as a consolation prize after not being able to secure an Andre Ward fight. (more…)

“I suspect that the fight in Hamburg against the undefeated 6-6 Mariusz Wach will be a great tribute to his coach and friend Emanuel Steward and that all boxing fans worldwide will see in the ring a special statement from Wladimir Klitschko,” said Tom Loeffler, managing director of K2 Promotions, in a Fightnews.com interview. Loeffler spoke about Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 50 KOs) preparations for his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO title defense against Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KOs), on November 10 in Hamburg, without his late friend and trainer Emanuel Steward plus what we can expect from Vitali Klitschko as a politician and what’s in the future from the newest K2 Promotions star Gennady Golovkin (24-0, 21 KOs).
