Rumor Mill - Lucian Bute vs Allan Green


Lucian Bute and Allan Green have begun negotiations for a fight this summer. Nice to see something's actually happening after Allan Green called him out. A source close to the Bute camp says that they're looking at a July 10 date on Showtime. The fight would either be in Montreal or Quebec City. It's nice to see that Showtime is taking a major interest in the super middleweight division. While the top of the division isn't necessarily as strong as welterweight or lightweight, there's a ton of depth in the division and a lot of great fights that could be made. Rumor also has it that Showtime is considering putting together a tournament for the weight class, but those things are usually too hard to pull off for it to actually ever happen. In other SMW news, Carl Froch has now turned his attention to calling out Mikkel Kessler, saying he'd throw down in Denmark. What the man lacks in brains, he makes up in balls. Update: Now Dan Rafael is reporting that Bernard Hopkins wants a piece of Froch, in England, at 168. Color me skeptical. Frankly, if Hops is willing to make a fight against Froch, who's not a draw even in the UK, then it pretty much means he's avoiding Dawson, since a Hopkins-Dawson fight would generate a LOT more TV revenue than Hopkins-Froch. Hops can talk all he wants to, but his threats to Adamek proved to be a lot of hot air, and I wouldn't give much credence to this claim either.

Bute in Discussions with Dirrell


According to the linked article (in French), Interbox and Gary Shaw have entered into discussions for Lucian Bute to fight Andre Dirrell in his next fight. Bute's mandatory with Andrade would become due in late June, so any fight would need to be before then. In the article, Shaw himself is quoted as saying he'd love to get Dirrell in there against Bute in Montreal, and that Showtime has expressed interest in the fight. It also mentions that Interbox representatives are considering a Bute fight against the Green-De Leon winner. Bute fighting either Dirrell or Green has the potential to be a fantastic fight.
