Bute is going to stop a fighter no one else has been able to before. No big deal

Fight was sign at 170

Bute 169 and Grachev 168,9

I think Bute will be very cautious in the first 3 rounds and should get condidence back from round to round. Grachev will try do like Froch did but won't be fast enough , Bute will boxe more with combinations and let his fist go startin round 4 and move a lot so he don't get cought by Grachev wide punch , ref will stop the fight in the 8 with Grachev still on his feet but getting hit too much

Everything else you want to know ?

Ye agree that bute will naturally be very cautious for much of the fight, may lead to a save UD though?

Hope not. Even a 120-108 UD for Bute would be disappointing..

Actually I don't know him that much, but Syllakh dropped him in his last fight IIRC.

Grachev proved he isnt a great boxer but if you leave him around he can be dangerous

i think Bute would stop him, Sillakah carried him and paid badly

he telegraphs his shots and sticks his head out and leans head first, ii think the Bute uppercut should find home easy

Teddy Atlas begged for Sillakah to step in and fire when Grachev telegraphed but instead Sillakah backed up rather than countered him to sleep

i think Sillakah got KO'd backing straight out i cant remember
