@danrafaelespn: Announced today by InterBox: @InterBoxBute will return Nov. 3 vs. Denis Grachev (12-0-1, 8 KO) in Montreal. #boxing

Anyone know much about Grachev? Obviously a confidence building fight, but surely dropping down to that level won't hold him in good stead for a Froch rematch. The step up in class will be huge

He obviously carries some power and has a solid enough beard based on the Sillakh fight, so there is some danger for Bute but he should be overcome it. Should be a big confidence boost if he can win impressively.
It's 170lbs so the Froch rematch will definitely be 168.
