Carl Froch VS. Lucian Bute Seems Likely

According to, Lucian Bute will face Carl Froch if Bute doesn't sign to rematch Andrade in the next few days. The rumor is that the fight will take place in September. Let's hope.

Lucian Bute needs to give a much deserved rematch to Andrande, but if that fight does not materialize these next few days, the next best option for fight fans is seeing Bute-Froch.

Bute, a southpaw, is a better technician than Froch. Froch is a bigger banger with a better chin. This match-up poses an interesting stylistic clash between the two boxers; classic boxer vs. puncher.

Although Froch is an awkward operator, there is no doubt he is the puncher between the two. Froch just came off a sensational victory over Jermain Taylor in which he forced a last minute stoppage.

I like Carl Froch by late TKO if these two get the contracts signed. I see Lucian out-slicking and out-boxing Froch early on in the fight, only to get worn down by Froch's constant pressure. The key in this fight will be pressure. Froch will bring a lot of it.
