Lucian Bute says that he is ready to travel to England to face Carl Froch.

IBF super-middleweight champion Lucian Bute has said that he is ready to fight Carl Froch "even in England".

It is believed that a bout may be scheduled in Froch's hometown of Nottingham, where the 34-year-old has won key fights against Jean Pascal and Andre Dirrell.

Posting on Twitter, Bute announced: "Leaving for training camp today. Just told @jeanbedardcage I am ready to fight @Carl_Froch, even in England. Let`s get this done!"

The 31-year-old Romanian, who has not lost in 30 fights, has successfully defended his IBF crown ten times since winning it against Alejandro Berrio in 2007.

Meanwhile Froch lost his WBC strap to Andre Ward in the final of the Super Six tournament in December.
