Carl camp puts in Bute call


Recommended Posts

CARL FROCH is being lined up to take on Canada's Lucian Bute if he upsets the bookies and beats Andre Ward to unify the world super-middleweight division.


His promoter Eddie Hearn has admitted tentative talks have already taken place with the IBF champion's camp but nothing further will be done until tonight's showdown at the Boardwalk Hall is decided.


Hearn revealed: "Showtime TV have already indicated they want to carry on screening Carl's bouts. Bute is also a Showtime fighter so that one is very easy to make for the winner.


"Carl wants to fight in Nottingham and it's been a while since he fought in front of his home fans, but I think he would go to Canada.


"He doesn't really care. He's not going to say 'I'm not going there because it's Canada'. He would just pack his bag and off he goes for a tear-up because that it was he does. Look at the number of times he's fought in America. It really doesn't bother him."
