I think Bika beats Bute after seeing what Froch did to him.

Bute wins the first few rounds then Bika just unleashes the rough house uncompromising style and just out toughs and grinds Bute down. He is damaged goods now he won't recover easily from a stoppage like the Froch one after being previously unbeaten.

Didn't Bute already beat Bika?

As PaulieMc says,Bute clearly suffers from vertigo if he ventures outside of Montreal.
It could well be broadcast later on but in the arena?
Can't see it.That tail knows where it belongs.

Bute wins easily. Even though Froch destroyed him, I still think he's a talented boxer and will bounce back.

I do think it's a foolish decision to want to face Froch so soon. Bute needs to face lower guys for a while first, build himself up a bit and hone his skills.

Bute will NEVER fight outside Canada again after what happened in Nottingham, his confidence has been completely crushed. Even if he wasn't afraid to do it, he wouldn't fight on under-card anyway when he can fight in a main event in his home town and makes TONNES more money.

Can maybe see it taking place on the same night though but I doubt anyone would care. Who's going to want to watch Bute fight some fringe contender at best after watching an all war between Froch and Kessler? Would be like shagging Megan Fox and then going home to Kerry Katona.
You're right. Why fight Bika in London on an undercard when he can sell what 20k (?) tickets in Montreal. Bika-Bute is a good main event for the Canadian crowd. We might see this on the same night.

Just thinking out loud but isn't there talk of HBO/Showtime being interested in Froch/Kessler? Then maybe Froch/Kessler would be on a US friendly time and on the same PPV as a Bika/Bute fight. A split venue USA PPV if you will

I also hope that Bute bounces back and goes onto regain titles etc. The better he does the more he enhances Froch's legacy.

I think he'll beat Bika (although its no gimme) too.

A rematch with Bika is not a scintillating prospect, is it? Eddie's going to be strapped for cash as is paying for Kessler and his boy's purse demands. He can't afford Bute as well, who doesn't draw in the UK.

The card apparently has to be PPV to pay Froch and Kesslers purses, I can't see that adding Butes purse to the cost would make sense.

Would Bute cost that much? He could be very cheap if he is guaranteed to fight the winner of Froch v Kessler.

He puts bums on seats in Canada. Thats a lot for Hearn to cover for an undercard fight.

He would cost a lot. It's not viable.

It'd make sense if they were just showing it live from another location.

Not sure I'd want him pissing away money getting bute over here when we could have better domestic fights on the undercard.
