Full Version: Bute Vs. Froch - Is Bute scared?
FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing

What's up with the apparent reluctance of Bute's team to give Froch the second bout that he wants as part of the potential contract with Bute? I think that it's only fair, first match in Canada and the second in the U.K. The intention was that the second fight would only be necessary if the first one wasn't a clear victory for either boxer.

I thought I saw this on Ringtv.com, but couldn't find it anymore. If it does happen, who do you have?

I'm going with Froch, only because I like the shit talking that he does.

in the uk froch, in canada bute, and thats how i see the fights panning out, but bute has a better chance in the uk than froch does in canada, because I doubt british boxing cares much about froch after he lost to ward in that manner and the super six. if that makes sense, while butes people still feel like they have something to lose if they lose which they do and they don't see really a 1 on his record means fuck all, but to the casual fans a 0 on his records means the guy is amazing and should be in the top ten p4p....

I think that Froch could win both, because I don't know if Bute has ever fought a guy like Froch who is a quality boxer that will bring the pressure. I haven't followed Bute's career, but I've seen some of his fights and I thought that dumb ass Edison Miranda was doing a good job against Bute until he left himself open for that wicked uppercut (I believe it was an uppercut).

Somebody who is currently in the U.K now like "fightscorecollector" could probably give a good idea of how Froch is perceived over there currently, but I don't think that his loss to Ward hurt his standing with the British public at all. His level of popularity before the Super Six (I don't believe) was that high and he's probably more famous now.

I figured the fan base of both fighters would support them regardless, win or lose. I saw the article earlier, but didn't have time/make time to read it. So in other words...I will just STFU until I read it, then I'll come back with a response laugh.gif

The fighters agreed. I heard it was Showtime that rejected the deal. They want Bute to fight an American.

Okay, that makes sense, especially if, as mgrover said, it's S.o.G

Froch is a badass. Loses to Andre Ward and starts negotiating to fight Bute in his own backyard. Mad respect for Froch. I do want to see this fight. I prefer Bute Froch over Ward Bute actually

Now all he has to do is beat Bute, and Im sure that Ward loss would magically begin to leave our minds...

I agree that Froch/Bute is a must see, but if I had to pick, I'd pick Ward/Bute.

No Bute is not scared
Show Time does not want this fight (it had a rematch clause in the contract)
Showtime does not want to pay that money with Ward sitting around chilling.
They want Ward vs Bute

Looking forward to this one.

Bute is not scared. He has a freshly defeated opponent...not to mention he agreed to fight in England. If he was scared theres no way he'd go to Froch's home island.
