Carl Froch Batters Lucian Bute And Makes Me A Believer

Time and time again, I have picked against Carl Froch in major title fights. And I’ve only been right two times, including one loss against Mikkel Kessler that could have gone either way.
When he ventured across the pond (Atlantic Ocean) to defend his super middleweight title against former middleweight king Jermain Taylor, I picked Taylor. I was wrong.
When Froch stepped into the ring in the more friendly confines of Nottingham, United Kingdom against then-undefeated Andre Dirrell during the Super Six tournament, I predicted that he’d lose a close fight. The opposite happened (not without its own controversy).
And most recently, I assumed that Lucian Bute (30-1, 24 KO’s) would out-slick and out-class Carl Froch when they met this past Saturday. You know what they say when you assume? Well, in my case, when I assume, Froch seems to find a way to win.
After his shocking, minor upset victory against Bute via fifth-round technical knockout, Froch raised his record to 29-2 (21 KO’s), regained a portion of the super middleweight belt (IBF version), and finally made me a believer out of me.
From this day forward, "Mr. Carl Froch you are officially a very bad man in my book, no matter what happens for the rest of your career. Sincerely, Ja Dawson."
