Default Carl Froch: "Itís not cheap following The Cobra"

On what fans can expect when he squares off against Bute on May 26:

“What can they expect? Yeah. They can expect fireworks! It’s going to be a great night of boxing between two top athletes. You know Lucian Bute wants to defend his title away from home against me, a top level fighter. I so badly want to win this world title in front of my home fans. I’ve left no stones unturned. So the fight fans, the non-boxing fans, the armchair fans, the TV broadcasters—they’re in for a real, real treat. Let me tell you. This is going to be a great, great fight for the fight fans. It really is. This fight can end in one of two ways. It can either go the distance and be a real humdinger for twelve rounds where he is trying to survive and he’s letting shots go, and I’m putting him under pressure and landing body shots and head shots. There may even be a knockdown involved. He may go down and get back up and then hold on. Or it could be over very quick because when Bute feels the power and the intensity, and the pressure from me that he’s never been put under before, he may just fall apart! It might just be a one-sided performance by me. But either way it’s very exciting and fight fans should be looking forward to this one. They really should. It’s amazing that a major American broadcaster, and I’m not saying that EPIX isn’t a decent TV channel—but it’s disappointing that Showtime has turned their back on this one and that HBO aren’t involved, because I think it warrants a big box office and it warrants a big TV station getting a hold of it. Thankfully we got Sky Sports in Britain onboard, which is great for people in Britain. But I think the American fans deserve to see this fight on one of the major networks. But there you go. It’s not my decision. It’s the paymaster’s decision and they’ve decided not to go with it, which is amazing really.”

On whether he has anything to say he would like to pass on to all of his fans:

“All The Cobra fans? Yes of course! I always got time for them! Thanks very much for all of your support. It’s been a wonderful journey. I’m not saying the journey is over. You know I’m a former two-time WBC champion. I’m now fighting for the IBF title and this is the most important fight of my career, because I cannot go out on my career on a loss to Ward in the way in which I lost it. It was just a dull fight! It was a terrible night for me, and a night in which it brings me great sadness and it upsets me when I think about it. It’s just awful! So this fight for me now with Bute means everything, and all of my fans that have been behind me, they supported me from start to finish and traveled all over the world. It’s not cheap following The Cobra. I’ve been away that much and my British fans have to dig deep into their pockets to come and support me. But I got a lot of love as well in America. There are a lot of American boxing fans that support me and are behind me. So I just want to say a big thanks to all of them, and be watching me because the journey is not over yet!”

It can be! I once snook into front row of press at the Andre Dirrell fight (have pictures to prove it). Will be the 4th Froch fight I'm attending and I can't wait!

This will place Froch in the lower level of Super Middleweights.He will be a domestic level type fighter following the defeat to Bute.

Other way around in My mind, the only thing Froch does that will give Bute openings is that stupid jumping jab other hand flying back, its amature shit that ive seen 6 year olds learn how to not do, good fight either way, peace!

Nice!!!

You saw 3 awesome fights, and I've no reason at all to believe this won't be another one!

I actually thought Froch-Kessler was by far the most entertaining and intense fight of the entire Super Six.

Good stuff!
