Former super middleweight titleholder Lucian Bute, with a rematch on tap against Carl Froch in March, will first face Denis Grachev. Bute and Grachev will meet Nov. 3 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, where the Romanian-born, Montreal-based Bute is a major star, Jean Bedard of InterBox, Bute's promoter, announced on Thursday. The fight is contracted at a maximum of 170 pounds, two more than the super middleweight limit.
