Default Re: Bute to fight for WBC title same night as Froch v Kessler possibly on the underca

Cant see it myself,he has had one fight since Froch predictably beat him. Bute was one of the daftest No.1 ratings I ever saw in boxing monthly. Good fighter no question but totally unproven against a come to win fighter at top level. Andrade was the closest he had come to that and it was near disaster.
Bute had potential but was in my opinion brought on too poorly and when the time came it showed. If he is put in against anyone half decent on this show for a world title fight he will lose. His people know this, and that is why he will fight a journeyman in a non title fight if he is on the undercard. He will never be the same fighter he was but there is a big payday against the winner of Kess v Froch they wont risk him losing.
