Default Fight that never happened 2011: Lucian Bute vs Kelly Pavlik

A more recent one.

As we all know, Kelly Pavlik and Lucian Bute were lined up to fight each other in Canada in 2011 after Kelly took a tuneup against Darryl Cunningham. Unfortunately, Kelly Pavlik pulled out of the fight against Cunningham and subsequently from the fight against Bute. At the time Bute was undefeated albeit against lesser competition. Pavlik at the time had just returned with a iffy knock the rust off showing against club fighter Alfonso Lopez. As we all know Froch absolutely obliterated Bute and took away pretty much all of his credibility. Bute struggled against Grachev but I think a good deal of that is in direct relation from Froch pummeling him. Pavlik on the other hand has maintained his status as a SMW enigma. We don't know where he fits in the picture after the likes of Lopez, Sigmon, and Rosinsky.



How do you think this fight would have played out in Canada in 2011?


EDIT for previous polls:

Jean Pascal vs Edison Miranda (9 posters pick Pascal to stop Miranda, 2 posters picked Pascal to decision Miranda, 2 posters picked Miranda to stop Pascal)

Jermain Taylor vs Edison Miranda (14 posters picked Taylor to decision Miranda, 13 posters picked Taylor to stop Miranda, 1 poster picked a draw, 1 poster picked a Miranda decision, 7 posters picked a Miranda stoppage)

Actually this fight was Initially suppose to happen when both Bute and Pavlik were best rated fighters(by the ring) in their divisions. HBO has done a double header:
Bute vs Miranda / Pavlik vs Martinez
After Bute won his fight you could see at the post fight conference that Lucian was watching Pavlik vs Martinez, Larouche asks the reporters "Martinez leads?!" looking a bit surprised.

Bute has no chin, none.

I do remember this, however, I was going with the time the contract was signed, sealed, and......Kelly backed out of.

Seen considerably worse chins. However, his chin is hardly "good". What bothers me more is just how badly he reacts when just being stunned. It's almost like a panic.

Unless you know the facts about why KP pulled out of that fight, you should probably refrain from guessing games. They're pointless.

Please point out where there were any guessing games.

I'll help you out, there were none.
