Re: who would be a better opponent for Bute ?
Pavlik would be the tougher fight for Bute if Pavlik is anything near to the shape he had in his prime...
AA could be dominated by Bute easily...but with AA you never know. If he would connect flush on Bute, I guess Bute would go to sleep. He is not exactly iron-chinned and he does not need to be if he moves a lot and doesn't get hit - but if he does by a big puncher like Abraham the fight is over.
