Lucian Bute has been bothered by an infection in his foot since last Saturday. However, the condition is improving and InterBox and Lucian Bute are confident that Lucian will be able to fight according to schedule.
A specialist/doctor has prescribed antibiotics to Lucian Bute to treat the infection. He will meet with doctors again later this week to ensure that the foot is healing according to schedule.
The upcoming Bute vs. Froch fight is one of the biggest on the calendar, and is one that fight fans have been looking forward to for some time. Having the fight delayed or canceled due to this would be a big blow, especially to Bute, who has been looking to break out and gain some additional respect with a top caliber win now that the Super Six Tournament has concluded.
We'll keep you posted with any further news on Bute's injury/infection and whether or not he'll be good to go in a few weeks.
