Bute to train with Roach

By Dan Rafael | ESPN.com

Former super middleweight titlist Lucian Bute has lost two of his last three fights and he was uncertain if he would continue his career.

He lost his super middleweight belt by fifth-round knockout to Carl Froch in May 2012, rebounded six months later for 12-round decision win against Denis Grachev in a much harder than expected fight and then moved up to light heavyweight and got taken to school by former champion Jean Pascal in the biggest fight in Montreal history in January.

On Thursday, Bute (31-2, 24 KOs), 34, southpaw, said at a news conference in Montreal that he would continue his career and do so under the guidance of Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach following a trip to his Hollywood, California gym a few weeks ago.
