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.
