It's subtle, and doesn't appear to have a purpose but I'm certain he does this by design. There's more to Froch than meets the eye.
From what I saw against Bute, he's just an aggresive fighter with some power in his punches. Couldn't really see the angles or the upperbody movement you talk about. I mean, it took him almost 2 rounds to finish Lucian, who hasn't a strong chin at all and is not really used to being hit much.
I could be wrong, but Bute being an intelligent boxer, I can see Lucian knocking out Carl in their rematch.
