I agree, Ward would beat Bute clearly. But after the Super 6, Bute was the next biggest name in the division after Ward, it was the fight to make. Whether you think Bute needed to prove himself, or whether Ward didn't need to take a hard fight after the s6, that's all fair enough and everyone's entitled to an opinion. The simple truth is that Ward didn't want to fight Bute. Dino's problem is that if he had agreed Ward didn't want to fight, but then stated Bute needed to prove himself, that would have been understandable, but he got overly defensive and tried to make out it was Bute avoiding the fight
Also, those who discredit the win for Froch have an agenda, Carl was an underdog going into that fight, and he hammered him.
