Now, Bika and Berrio don't even compare with power, Berrio probably hits harder than anyone at SMW, but of course has a glass chin himself and has only workable skill level, which makes him look bad against guys who have real top 15 skill level and makes him look even worse against guys who have top 5 skill level, such as what I believe Bute has.

I dont believe that Berrio is the hardest hitter at SMW. Froch, Markussen, Lacy all have greater power. The punch that knocked out Stieglitz wasnt that big or anything. Stieglietz just has a weak chin.

If Bute has a chin he will KO Berrio in less than 7.

It maybe - but I wasnt impressed by the shot he went down from. It was kind of short and direct and didnt look to carry that much power.

His chin may be decent but its def. not good

Berrio also sparked Mack, which took the very, very hard hitting Andrade a lot of body work to wear Mack down.

I at least think that Mack showcased overall good punch resistance in his lack of defence considering the punishment he absorbed for 7 rounds against Andrade, who's definitley a great puncher. Andrade further showcased that cast iron jaw also...

Hard chin and a hard punch, have to love that guy...

Better than a weak chinned feather fist pansy like Amir Khan...

Anyway, here is the comparison -

Berrio put Mack away in clearer fashion with maybe 20% of the work Andrade drilled Mack with, another indication of Berrio's power. If you rate Lacy's power better than it makes Calzaghe's chin made out of steel, considering Lacy landed a monster right hand in round 1 and Joe didn't even blink.

It's that supernatural entity mate, you can't stop it.

Berrio is slow boxer with average skills whose only weapon is his firepower.A very predictable and one-dimensional fighter.Bute should be able to win big time against that Columbian.
I never understand when people say Stieglitz was "easily outboxing" Berrio for the first 2 rounds of their second fight.

I thought the first two rounds were pretty close.

1- Mundine is blind and will never fight again.

2- The WBA Regular title can not be unified.

Not as far as I know. ESPN FnF is off until next year.

But I think TVA or Videotron will be streaming the fight on the internet.

Berrio's a stronger puncher and a quicker fighter than Bute, and his boxing skills are underrated, but he's too much of a defensive liability to have a strong chance against a steady boxer who can punch.
You had every thing right except that berrio is quicker than bute.
No way is the colombian faster.

berrio is limited, with a questionable chin. bute KO's him, though he is getting overrated here.

Bute doesnt take any risks and that makes ppl think he has moderate power. He is going lately towards the easy UD wins. If he finds himself in trouble we will see (hopefully) his dark, agressive side . He hits very hard to the body with his left upercut when he is willing to stand up and trade. Unfortunately, he is taking that "u cant hit me approach" that is less spectacular. I prefer to watch Diaconu (less skills but more heart) than him.
