Carl Froch will not head in to tomorrow’s IBF world super-middleweight title challenge against Lucian Bute as favourite, despite fighting in his home town of Nottingham.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes have made the travelling champion 8/15 favourite to retain his title, with former two-time world champion Froch 13/8.

“The odds suggest Froch’s going to need more on his side than just the home crowd if he’s got a chance of beating Bute,” said Jessica Bridge, of Ladbrokes.
