Carl Froch and Lucian Bute

Carl Froch will be returning pleasurably and in so much confidence to
his hometown venue on May 26 to fight Lucian Bute to challenge and to engage in
the best contest for Bute’s IBF World Super Middleweight Title.

The press
conference was on 19 March 2012 in Nottingham UK and so far ticket sales have
been bought in high numbers, in the first hour 
2,500 were sold  according
to Matchroom Sport who are promoting the event have already stated it
looks like it’s heading towards a sell out.


Even though the Canadian Bute will be placing his world title
on the line is extremely confident that he will be just doing a round trip from
Canada to the UK just to bring his belt back home with him, he said previously
to ESPN UK, “It is my goal to fight the best boxers in the super-middleweight
division, Carl Froch belongs in the elite super-middleweight division and it
will be a great fight, I am very confident it will not faze me fighting in
enemy territory, supporters of Carl Froch will live their
greatest disappointment, the IBF Belt will
fly round-trip Montreal – Nottingham and then back”.

Now Bute has been bothered with a foot infection and is taking
antibiotics to fight it off.  The Bute
camp say that his condition is improving and they are confident that he will be
able to fight on May 26.

Jean Badard who is Bute’s promoter and Eddie Hearn who promotes Carl
Froch. Have spoken about their fighters with high esteem and class, and are
looking forward to the fight in the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, Hearn is
calling it “No Easy Way Out”.

Both fighters are very popular with the public and worldwide, this is
what Froch said  previoulsy, “I am
so pumped up for the fight and I’ve got to give Lucian Bute credit, I’ve given
him stick for not fighting the top opposition”.  He also talked about
his few previous fights he said, ” I am coming back on a fight after a
loss, and when I did that after the Kessler defeat I was tuned into beating
Arthur Abraham and that was a whitewash.”

Known as the Cobra, will Froch paralyse his victim with an awful bite
that will leave Bute stunned and hand him the belt or will Bute just feel right
at home with the non cheering hometown fans on May 26 and just fly back to
Canada with a good payday?

We will see what prevails now as Khan v
Peterson is cancelled and the sports world is currently fluttering in
excitement about this fight and they have lots to look forward to as British
Boxing has not seen a world championship win lately.
