Froch-Bute II Confirmed for March 2013 in Montreal

The story just came out today, it looks like Carl Froch and Lucian Bute will reunite for their second fight next March. There was a rematch clause in place even before the first fight took place, and it looks like the clause has been triggered. Froch has said that he will have a tune-up fight in November, after which he will put his belt on the line in a rematch against Bute. If Bute can fix the mistakes that we all saw in his game in the first fight, it could be a very exciting match. Looks like the rematch is on.

Report - Bute and Froch agree to two fight deal

According to the Daily Mail, within a day after losing the Super Six final to Andre Ward, Carl Froch and Lucian Bute have agreed to a two fight deal where the fighters would meet once in Montreal and once in Nottingham. Under the deal, Bute would get 100% of Canadian money, Froch would get 100% of the UK money and the rest would be split 50/50. If true, this continues Froch's run against top level competition dating all the way back to his title eliminator against Jean Pascal, while this may help silence some of Bute's critics who claim he has been avoiding top fighters. As for Andre Ward, he reportedly has said he would not fight Bute in his next bout, which opened the door for this series.

Rough Trade: Carl Froch-Glen Johnson Preview

The seemingly never-ending Super Six saga winds down to its penultimate bout when Carl Froch faces Glen Johnson in Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on Saturday night. In the 20 months since the tournament began, we have seen a dizzying array of delays, cancellations, and withdrawals. But through the thick foliage of politics and injuries, we’ve learned a great deal about the fighters involved, and along with Andre Ward, Carl Froch, 27-1, has come out looking antiseptic.

Super Six tourney has turned out to be more of a hassle than a success.

Froch vs Abraham: Which one has to rebound once more?

What happens when you put two world class fighters in a ring together, add a little explosiveness and just touch of , "I cannot lose this fight" mentality? What you get is the upcoming Carl Froch-Arthur Abraham bout. Each combatant is coming off of a loss that many in the boxing world thought that they would win. Froch ventured to Denmark to face Mikkel Kessler. Kessler was the odds on favorite heading into Showtime’s Super Six Tournament, but was upset in round one by now tourney favorite, Andre Ward. Some viewed the Ward fight as a bout that showed certain limitations for Kessler. Besides suffering numerous headbutts, Kessler seemed to be outhustled and lost a technical decision. Froch had dealt Andre Dirrell a loss in their first round fight. The fight was, to be honest, hard to watch.

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.
