If he triggers the rematch clause, his glass jaw is getting shattered again.

Good on Bute I guess, but this time he'll be crumbling under Froch's pressure in front of his fans. IMO he still won't be able to dodge Froch's heavy right hand, maybe so for a couple of rounds but not through 12.

Either he potshots Froch like he did the oh so mighty Grachev in round 12, this time over 12 full rounds, or he goes down at some point and never recovers.

I'll be surprised if it happens next.

Say what you want about Bute, he's a fighter. You have to understand even when these guys get thoroughly ambushed it's just a "bad night at the office" in their minds. No top fighter can afford to let doubt creep in that they're not better than the opponents they face...thats a big reason why theres so many BS excuses.

However, that's when the promoters and managers step in and work around it. There's plenty of behind the scenes talk that both promoters are looking into pushing the rematch back a date. I expect this to happen.

Bute-Rodriguez is the rumor that's going around... HBO to air it. Do you think HBO is pushing for this because they'd like A) for Bute to bump up his worth before the rematch, then B) showcase Froch destroying a counterpuncher in his backyard, and finally C) show the HBO audience that Ward can do a better number on this so called improved Cobra, this time in LV?

I think HBO is trying to get somebody for Ward later this year. Unless ward plans to move up they got to start showing 168 fights. Being this fights on HBO if I was Bute I would not be complaining to much about taking this fight with rodriguez, bitch some, but don't get to upset. I don't think HBO wants anything less then you an either ward or froch at the end of the year. Better it to be Ward, cause win or lose you still will get a payday fight with froch (re-match clause), an with a win, which I believe happens you got some bragging rights.

If the HBO fight happens I think it is better for bute

that's the end of bute then. if he wants to retire, he should just go ahead and do it. getting froch over to knock him out and do the retiring for him is a silly way of doing things.

but hey, it's bute's life.

They just have a showcase fighter they have a lot invested in in Ward and need to get involved at 168. The flip side to that rumor is that they're trying to work out Kessler-Froch 2 which HBO would also pick up. So that gives 4 168lb guys getting HBO exposure to be potential Ward opponents.

Unlike Bute you didn't earn that kind of money. You should do it for free.

It doesn't matter if Bute is going to get himself knocked the **** out in front of his own fans in the first round or not. What matters is that Bute takes this fight and does his best to perform well.

Bute's had his tune-up. If he still claims to be a world-class fighter, he needs to rematch Froch in March/April, and do his best, win or lose.

If he doesn't think he is a world class fighter anymore, he has two options:-

1. milk the popularity he still has left in Montreal against lower-level fighters for another year or two until the fans stop buying tickets and he is forced to retire

2. retire with his head held high, having done his best and given his fans the best...

Bute's fans have been very loyal and very understanding and they have supported Bute morally and financially like few other boxers in the world have been in the last few years. Bute is still one of the biggest draws and best-paid boxers in the world, even after his destruction in Montreal.

Now Bute needs to repay the fans' faith and love. Either retire or fight proven world-class fighters win or lose, starting with Froch, Lucian!

What an idiot! They just think it's a pointless fight.

Calm down. That's how a promoter protects his champion, by looking for his best interests

No, no, no!! Bute, please beat up Rodriguez first. At least you'll have 1 nice win and get some real confidence back before facing Froch and likely once again getting crumbled like a dry French-Canadian cookie.

Although I'm still a fan..
