Carl Froch vs Lucian Bute fight highlights

Carl Froch proved himself as one of the finest fighters on the planet by destroying the IBF super-middleweight title-holder Lucian Bute to become a three-times world champion in his home city.

The popular Nottingham 34-year-old was regarded as the underdog heading into the contest with the unbeaten Bute, who was making a rare foray outside his Canadian stronghold.

But Froch proved emphatically that defeat by Andre Ward in his last fight was by no means the beginning of the end for him, stopping the stunned Bute in the fifth round to add the IBF crown to the WBC belt he held twice in the past.

Froch, whose record read 28-2 with 20 early wins coming into the fight, admitted in the buildup to the contest that he had much to prove after losing to Ward in the Super Six tournament final in America before Christmas.

He was at least able to rely on home support for the first time in three years after a daunting run of fights on foreign soil, while Bute, 30-0 with 24 knockouts before Saturday night, also wanted to answer his critics who questioned his unblemished but untested record.

Roared on by a partisan crowd at the Capital FM Arena, Froch started positively. After a cagey opening 30 seconds it was he who landed first, but received a warning for hitting on the break after the follow-up exchange.

He was the aggressor throughout the first round but found Bute ready with the trademark counters. Bute landed a strong southpaw left in the second as Froch jabbed his way in successfully. Froch won the second round too, finishing it emphatically with a right hand, left hook combination which hurt Bute.

Froch landed a good jab and Bute was on wobbly legs and clinging on desperately. Froch mercilessly marched forward and Bute still stood despite a hurtful right uppercut.

Froch was threatening to punch himself out, winging in shots, but also paused for breath to try to find the finisher. Bute landed two counter lefts and somehow survived the round but Froch undoubtedly sensed the finish was in his sights.

Both men traded leather in the fourth as Froch hammered home a powerful right and followed it up with a flurry. But Bute, to his credit, planted his feet and fired back wilfully. He was saved by the bell as Froch landed a fierce left hook at the end of the round.

Bute was timid and unsteady when the fifth round got under way. A right hand rocked his head back sickeningly and another, after several unanswered shots, forced him down with only the ropes holding him up.

The referee began administering a count – the crowd believed he had called it off – but Bute's corner entered the ring to spare their man further punishment.

• Audley Harrison won his comeback fight against Ali Adams with a fourth-round stoppage. The former Olympic champion, now 40, defeated his 30-year-old opponent in four rounds at the Brentwood Centre in Essex in his first fight since his one-sided defeat to WBA heavyweight title David Haye in November 2010. Harrison sent his opponent to the canvas with a right hand and although the Chelsea-based Iraqi managed to get to his feet, a flurry of follow-up shots from Harrison prompted the referee to step in and end the contest.
