He has good boxing skills and is a great boxer, I used to really like but i was put off a little by the whole debacle of the first Andrades fight, when he was gone in the last round and the ref gave him a massively long count etc pretty much saving him from the loss, I know he made up for it in devastatinfg fashion in the rematch but it just left a sour taste in my mouth.

And Froch has probably had the toughest schedule of any fighter over the last 2-3 years, fought the best, Much better quality than Butes opponents

Great fight between two top fighters.

Bute proves that with the right offer, he will leave canada.

Froch gives more proof he will fight ANYONE. Best resume in boxing. I love ward but andre said he deserves a rest after winning the S6. Fair enough. Froch stepped in and said " i'l have bute".

Old school mentality, im hoping froch gets back in the winners stall.

I think Bute will take this but not fussed who wins, as whoever does is likely to deserve it.

Tend to agree, I think Froch can take this.

I hope Froch can pull the win out but he has to make this a war to have a chance imo. Bute can be rocked if you can get him right but he's a top fighter who has a lot of class & better skills than Froch. Going to be a gooden this one.

From memory, Didnt Andrade shoot himself in the foot by not going back to his corner or keep coming out which forced the ref to stop counting and have a word to him.

I dont mind Bute, but I think Froch gets him into his comfort zone and stops him.
