Carl Froch will announce the
opponent for his first IBF world super middleweight title defence
on Monday (August 20).
The three time world champion
will box in November in the first defence of the title he won in
stunning fashion with a fifth round KO of Lucian Bute at the
Capital FM Arena in front of a fanatical hometown support in
Nottingham on May 26.
The 35-year-old will defend his
belt in his hometown again this November and should he be
successful he will travel to Montreal next spring to face Bute in a
"The Bute fight night will go
down in history as one of the greatest nights in British boxing
history," said Froch's promoter Eddie Hearn.
"Carl is chomping at the bit to
get back into the ring and feel the roar of the Nottingham fans
that he loves so much."
