Bute made an amatuer mistake that night thinking b/c he had equal power to Froch that his unequal chin could bear the fight in the trenches.
Also he kept his ****ing right hand down so it opened up Froch to come through with the Jab. I thought he would have been more wary after the first Andrade fight but Ce la Ve

Excellent finisher, around an 8 for me. When he senses he has his guy hurt he goes into this cool stalker mode with his hands down and throws hard straight shots, especially with his right hand down the pike. The stuff that finished Taylor was pretty much the exact same barrage that he finished Bute with.

And even if he doesn't finish his man, he always finishes the fight strong, imposing his will making his opponent work until the fight is entirely over.

He's always ready to initiate the finishing sequence if need be, let's put it that way.

He proved that beyond a shadow of doubt against Taylor.

Hard to rate.

Part of me wants to say 10 due to Taylor and Bute.

The other part says he never had the chance and never ever put on that "finishing game face" against the other elite opposition: Ward, Kessler, Pascal, Abraham, Glen. But, like you said, nobody knocks those guys out, or seldom even hurt them.

I'd say a good 8. Bute and Mack fights recently solidified that. The only guys he doesn't stop, as said, simply don't get stopped.

Nine for me, those body shots were brutal tonight... me and my bro were watching the fight live and as soon as those shots landed we knew it was over.

I gave him a 7 because 7 1/2 wasn't a poll option, and I can only think of a handful of fighters I'd rate at 9 or higher. Carl is a good finisher. A great finisher would have stopped Ward in round 8. Carl didn't even seem to realize Ward was seriously buzzed.
