Bute bounces back
Coming off the first loss of his professional career, Montreal's Lucian Bute is a winner again, after defeating Russian Denis Grachev in a 12-round unanimous decision at the Bell Centre.
Bute now says he's ready for a re-match with Carl Froch, who beat Bute in May to take away his I-B-F super-middleweight title.
Bute improved to 31-1 last night and won Grachev's minor NABF light heavywight title. The
Bell Centre attendance of 10,122 was down somewhat from his usual draw, but better than was predicted in the days leading up to the fight.
The win should set up a rematch with Froch.
