    Froch did good in this fight, but he will have hiss a*s whooped in the remach… I can t wait to see when Bute will clean the floor with his british a*s.

    • Ry4n1234

      You make me laugh, to get a rematch the fight has to be a close one he was whooped. He had nothing to reply to frotch punches

    • tog

      tou must be deluded mate, bute got smashed to bits. grow up u m*ron

    • smellyour mum

      Retarded is the word you was looking for tog. Froch is an iron bar not many people if anyone out there could smash Froch… yes they might win/outclass Froch definately not smash and certainly not bute

    why is there always a bimbo girlfriend who seems to want the limelight more than the boxer who did all the work?

  • Rpd_cd

    Two rounds of punches and Bute was still there, What a champion ! We wil see Carl Froch In Bucharest or Quebec. He will regret all the stupid comments he made after the fight. for sure ….

  • Chrisjackson113

  • Alin_geo18

    bute is the best..go go go lucian

  • boxing fan

    bute has avoided big fights his whole career..he finally took a big fight and got out classed by a lot…the same thing will happen in the rematch…bute has a glass jaw 

  • Edan9023

    He is still no match for Andre Ward. 

  • Iknow76er

    I think that its not fair to Blame Bute for not fighting the kind of opponenets as Froch they were both eligable for the Super 6 Bute took a few bad shots early he played catchup the rest of the fight where he realy never got even a solid punch off, It wasn;t his night froch is a Champion we all know that a modern day gladiator! Bute will be back he wanted to Fight Ward its Ward that didn’t want to fighht Bute…Do your homework guys Ward has only fought 2 South Paws his whole career… and NONE IN HIS LAST 15 FIGHTS!!!!

    • It is fair to blame Bute. He declined to enter the tournament and judging by this fight we know why! and in genuine disgust at that obscene statement about ward (who entered and won super 6) dodging bute, your not serious are you? the only thing your right about is froch being a gladiator, what a performance by a great guy. 

  • Mr Dee

    Congrats to Froch for a great victory. Bute was exposed. Just imagine how much worse it could’ve been had he faced Ward.

  • Trentender

    Did Nottingham and Nottingham Forest proud.
    Well done Carl.
