I've mentioned Abraham , Pavlik, Pascal and Kessler which aren't easy fights , especially Pascal and Kessler fights. The first 2 may be some winnable fights but that's not a sure thing. After these fights he can rematch Froch to face his demons and avenge his loss.
Believe me that I was very eager at some point to see the rematch too but after I watched that fight ( Froch vs Bute ) several times I've changed my mind. That was a brutal beating and nothing similar to Andrade I fight were Bute gassed out in 11-12 rounds and he got overwhelmed by the situation.
So, don't get me wrong , Bute can rematch Froch but after Abraham/Pavlik and Pascal/Kessler fights.
Money pay the bills.
