I didnt think it was that controversial Andrade should have stayed in his corner. Kessler was 1 I can agree there but Bute was closing in

I'll go top 5.

1. Ward
2. Kessler
3. Dirrell
4. Bute
5. Froch



Bute is kind of assed out since he can't even fight anyone that would move him up the rankings for a year or so.

Taylor, yes for about 8 rounds. Dirrell, just ran from him all night. Not that I want to defend Froch, but Dirrell looked bad in that fight.

I realize you're the top Bute hater on ESB and it's kind of your thing but can you seriously stand here and tell us Andrade and Bika we're even top20?

I mean, if you don't think Bute should be top3. It's perfectly fine. I don't have a problem with that what so ever. But to say Bute's only been beating top20-25 opponents is absolutely retarded.

I would switch Bute with Dirrell and call it the top 3 of the moment.

And please read the damn IBF rules and you'll see that everything was ok. The only thing we can blame the referee for is not stopping the fight in the last 30 seconds because Bute wasn't defending himself but at the same time, Andrade wasn't touching him with his shots.

1. BUTE ( no doubt favorite against anyone from Super 6 )
2-6. At a quite long distance the second level of equal fighters because everyone can beat everyone there: Ward, Kessler, Direll, Froch, Abraham.

This is the truth and the truth shall set you free people !

1. Ward
2. Dirrell
3. Kessler
4. Froch
5. Bute

The only thing Bute can do is to fight the two from super six that gets knocked out before the semis. And bring him self into the picture that way.

Or he can just stay in Canada and claim that he is the best.

The 5 main competitors in Super Six could all beat Miranda, Andrade and Bika - the test is facing the best in the division, a number of different styles, in a tournament format, home and away....no hiding places.

Until Bute faces any of the main 5 in super six, he has to be ranked behind all of them.
LoL Green has a loss to Miranda . Bute just KO him in 3. Miranda done better than Kessler against Ward . Andrade is always a dangerous man. Bika is ...well ... inactive lately. I have no idea how good he is now

Dirrell lost to Froch.

I don't think he can be ranked that highly - YET! (I am a fan and the sky is the limit for this guy... but let's keep it real for now).

1. Ward (best Kessler).
2. Kessler (beat Froch).
3. Froch (beat Dirrell).
4. Dirrell (beat AA).
5. AA (beat Taylor).
6. Bute (not in the SS and has much lower opposition that the SSers).
7. Green (replacement, has to prove he belongs).

This is on achievement alone. Skill is very subjective, and another list could easily be made on skill.
