Ward now said that he is healed and will defend his belt. So I guess Bute might not fight Bika for the WBC in the end.
Nothing is signed, there are only discutions. I'm fine with wooping Stevenson's ass and get him out of the way on the IBF deal.
So if I'm understanding correctly, the timeline would look a bit like this
Bika v s.....
Froch v kessler
Bute v stevenson
Ward v winner of bika v s....
Bute v Stevenson winner v froch v Kessler winner
Winners fight in huge unification whilst Abraham sits in the sidelines milking his belt.
For eveyone bar ward this is a good division. Ward's only meaningful fights are rematches he's already dominated. For the rest of them it's looking like some good fights are going down.
you think that scenario is likely?
