As for drained Dawson and Pavlik look at it like this, Dawson has no 168 and was proven to have a glass jaw and heart when in weight drained zombie mode, and what has Pavlik ever done above middleweight?
I agree with you about respecting Ward for taking on Groves. My respect for Bute skyrocketed when I heard he was going to Nottingham. Even after the hilarious defeat I still respect him more than pre-froch. At least Bute has some bollocks. When is going to step up his game back to the S6 level and even that was angled in his favour to begin with.
Fantastic to chat with an esteemed poster like yourself
Are you claiming Bute would have more power than Abraham and Froch..or even Kessler?
I see Froch beating Bute again,at which point I find it very hard to believe that Bute will EVER be in a position to fight Ward.
Kessler and Froch fight off to rematch Ward. In my opinion, Ward wins again and then heads up to LHW having completely cleaned out SMW
