Undefeated super-middleweight Lucian Bute has told his team that he is ready to give two-time world champion and Super-Six finalist Carl Froch the opportunity to challenge for his IBF belt and is even willing to travel to the Briton’s home country.
The two fighters have been linked to a home and way style double-header for the last few weeks and Bute has intensified the speculation by admitting the he wants the fight made in the near future.
“Leaving for training camp today. Just told Jean Bedard I am ready to fight Carl Froch, even in England. Let’s get this done!” stated the 30-0 champion.
The 31 year-old could now travel to Nottingham in May to fight the ‘Cobra’ if both sides can thrash out a deal – before a return contest later in the year on his Canadian home soil, whatever the result of the first fight.
