The bell sounded at the Capital FM Arena and Carl Froch gave a performance for the ages. Bute must have stolen something out of Froch's garage because he got a whipping that he'll never forget....just as soon as he's able to recall the evening. The crushing right hand which met Bute's chin and beckoned him to check out the lighting pattern of the arena ceiling was the coffin's nail in the fifth round.

Perhaps it was a bit of trepidation that killed the cat because it certainly wasn't curiosity. Where was this Froch when he fought Andre Ward? Although Bute showed that he has a remarkable chin and the intelligence to wrap up his opponent when hurt, one can only take so many bombs upstairs before the body goes into fallout mode. The look on Carl's face when he threw everything he could muster at Lucian.

Boxing needed this....as a sport and as the pastime that it still has the fortitude to be. No naughtiness in Nottingham tonight.....and no long (very long) count to rescue the guy from Romania.
