Default Re: Froch Bute - a little overated?!

Though I suppose Johnson's motivation for both fights can be questioned, I really do believe that he didn't fight at the same intensity in both encounters. He was well up for Froch (who himself didn't seem at his best) whereas in Canada he kind of just looked happy to pick up his paycheck. But who knows?
I got crucified for scoring that a draw at the time.
Johnson was a totally different fighter in those two fights. He looked intimidated in the Bute fight, amazing when you consider the caliber of fighter hed faced before. Just wasnt able to pull the trigger, whereas his big wild right found a near permanent home on Frochs face in their fight
