Lucian Bute
By Steve Kim, MaxBoxing (May 13, 2010) Special to Doghouse Boxing  
I got a call from a representative of InterBox, which handles the career of IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute. I was informed that Bute will return to the ring in his home country of Romania on July 24th against a still-to-be-determined foe.

It doesn’t seem like HBO will be televising this one as they are already committed to a date featuring Yuriorkis Gamboa in Las Vegas.

The IBF just recently installed Jesse Brinkley as Bute’s mandatory, an opponent that might not have been accepted by HBO. So perhaps this works out perfectly for everybody involved. Bute stays active, draws big back home and HBO doesn’t have to foot the bill....
