Lost to Kessler.

Was very close of loosing against a green Dirrell (some say he actually lost)
Bute is more precise than Kessler is not as green as Dirrell was back then not does he lacks the heart, even tho his stamina isn't the best he doesn't have problems as big as Taylor had in these department.
All these things tells us Froch is likely not going to win on points against Bute.
Bute is a southpaw his left will be hard to defend against by Froch because of the way he jabs. If Bute goes under or slides by that jab he can have a shot at Froch
Bute has a nice left down the pipe witch i think will be successful against Froch if you look AA best shots in the fight where the left jab and the right cross/straight. Jermain Taylor has success with his straights
Bute will catch him with the left uppercut or left hook when he will duck low or attack careless by jumping in or when Bute will step back at the right time and his punches will fall short.
Froch left hook and that faint when he seems like he trows a jab but turn's it into a hook will be useless because Bute's right shoulder.
Froch will have problems with his timing to against Bute.
You could well be right.Here's hoping this fight finally happens so we can see Bute finally put an end to all the ridiculous hype surrounding this joker Froch.
