THERE was once a time when Lucian Bute was considered one of the most feared super-middleweights on the planet.

For whatever reason, he was not included in Showtime’s Super Six series which ran from 2009 to 2011 and pitted the likes of Mikkel Kessler, Andre Ward and Carl Froch against each other to determine who the top fighter at 168lbs was.

In 2012, he was finally able to face one of his division’s top competitors when he travelled to Nottingham to fight hometown hero Carl Froch.
