Hopkins-Bute in the Works?
Posted by Ramon Aranda on 06.18.2010



In a recent interview with AOL Fanhouse, Golden Boy's Richard Schaefer said he's been in talks with Interbox Promotions about putting together a light heavyweight bout between Bernard Hopkins and IBF super middleweight titlist Lucian Bute.

"I actually talked with our friend at Interbox Promotions, Jean Bedard, who is the CEO of Interbox, which promotes Lucian Bute. We spoke about the possibility of putting together a fight with Bernard Hopkins. And they would be open to doing a fight between Bute and Hopkins," Schaefer told FanHouse.

"And so we're currently discussing that," said Schaefer. "The fight would be sometime between September and November -- somewhere between that window. That's what we would like to do. And I'm waiting for Jean Bedard to get back to me."

Hopkins is coming off an unimpressive decision win over longtime rival Roy Jones while Bute recently stopped Librado Andrade in their April rematch.
