“I can’t even picture a defeat before my fans. It must be a celebration,” Carl Froch said, speaking of the fight against Lucian Bute (Nottingham, May 26). “Mister KO” will put his IBF world champion title on the line for the tenth time, this time against Froch. “I must beat Lucian on May 26. I can’t even think of a defeat before my own fans, mostly after they travelled thousands of kilometres to see me in the SuperSix tournament and now, as a reward, they will witness a great fight at home. It must be a celebration, and this will only happen if the title stays in Britain,” Mediafax reproduced boxingscene.com to have quoted Carl Froch as saying.“Nothing compares to the Nottingham arena when full. I was there Monday night, it was cold and empty and I thought it would be a whole lot different in two weeks’. I know Lucian enjoys great support in Montreal, yet, I don’t believe his could match mine. Canadian spectators are quiet and look into the fight throughout it, and in the end, they applaud respectfully if he wins. My fans put their whole energy into each of my punches, sing the Nottingham Forest songs throughout the fight,” Froch also said.
