yeah man, I think that might very well be the case. Froch has always shown a good chin, it will be hard to knock him out.
But it's hard to say what Bute brings, he hasn't faced the top guys...
I've been thinking about it, first I had the same thoughts as you, but I change: I go with Bute by a wide, clear UD

Froch should beat Bute. Bute has face weaker competitions while Froch right now has one of the best resume in Boxing.

Is Andre Ward the next big sensation? He seems to be beating many good boxers.

he's definitely on his way. definitely the main man in his division.
he has very good skills.
but me, I don't like him too much. his SOG personality and his dirty tactics

Ok, just so you guys have a clear image about the 168'.

Ward's best wins = Kessler and Froch (while fighting at home).

Froch's best fights = Kessler and Ward (he lost both of them).

Bute challenged Kessler, Kessler said no thanks. Bute called out Ward saying he's gonna fight him in Oakland (Ward's home), Ward said no thanks.

Bute went on to challenge Froch (in England) and this fight was made. You need to know Bute accepted a smaller purse just to make this fight happen.

Now say whatever you want.

He wasnt invited. The Super 6 was under Showtime and back then he had a contract with HBO. He chose to settle things with Andrade after the first fight. After that, the best fighters were in the Super 6 so he couldnt fight any of them.

The guy needs to fight outside of Canada. The 32 yrs.old boxer reminds me of Chris John. Froch had a better performance than Bute in his last few fights. Froch will have the experience and upper hand going into this fight.

I dont think so. He so damn boring, in and out of the ring. He doesnt have a fan friendly style. That might be the most important thing in being a "Star", you have to entertain the fans. Guys like Ward, they just want to win and dont care about putting on a show. His personality doesnt stick out either like a Floyd Mayweather so i dont see him being a big star.

No worries.

Basically, its Bute's fight to lose even though they're in England. As a match, Bute's style is Froch's worst nightmare. He's a southpaw, faster and his bodyshots are lethal. Froch has poor defence but he compensates with a big heart and huge balls basically. In my opinion the only way Froch can win is if they pull a robbery. I like both fighters but i just can see how Bute loses this one.

If you want to know more, just ask Lebron23 and take for granted the exact opposite .
