And doubting Kessler's courage by saying "but he took 40 fights to step up
Consider this, it took Bute 9 title defenses before taking a big challenge and leaving his comfort zone.. Kessler left Denmark for his 1st title defense, unified in his 3rd and travelled to face Calzaghe in his 5th.
I'm not a Bute fan but Kessler is beyond overrated. The man is a good basic fighter, nothing special or different there. Kessler's biggest win is Froch in a tournament he escaped claiming a career ending injury only to return and continue his crusade against cans.
