Carl Froch vs. Lucian Bute

Carl Froch delivered an astounding fifth-round knockout of Lucian Bute in Nottingham, England.

The 9,000 strong rooted for their now new IBF world champion Carl Froch (29-2, 21 KO) as he handed now former IBF champ Lucian Bute (30-1, 24 KO) the first loss of his career.

Froch had last lost to WBC Andre Ward (25-0, 13 KO) in December of last year, losing a dominating unanimous decision. Froch looked to make a big statement in a major way against Bute and he did.

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter:

Here's a look back at what happened over the course of this world championship bout between two of boxing's biggest and brightest stars.
