LONDON - Carl Froch has targeted IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute if the Nottingham boxer makes a successful defence of his WBC title.
Undefeated Froch, 31, faces American Jermain Taylor on April 25 in Connecticut for the first defence of the crown he won by beating Jean Pascal in December. "I want to unify the division and Bute is someone who is stopping me from doing that. If I get through Taylor it is a fight I want and a fight I know I can win."
Bute retained his title with a fourth-round stoppage of Fulgencio Zuniga, with Froch an interested spectator.
And Froch, who holds a perfect 24-0 record with 19 knockouts, would also be willing to travel to Canada to take on the unbeaten, travel-shy 29-year-old.
First, though, Froch must get past Taylor, someone he knows he cannot take for granted. Taylor, 30, is a former middleweight champion and has lost only twice in 31 fights. - BBC
