Re: who would be a better opponent for Bute ?
I voted for AA because Bute could cruise to a 9-3, 10-2 type decision, put in rounds and rebuild his confidence. If Bute fights Pavlik, chances of a Froch/Bute rematch are very, very slim.
Just as a side note: Listening to KP talk about Froch/Bute, both before and after the fight, was amazing. He was spot-on.
