Frochs comment says it all. Had Bute been really convincing, real slick, maybe stopping Grachev within a few rounds, with one of his cool body punches, Froch would have said that Bute was weak, but for Carl to almost praise Butes terrible performance, against a 12 fight boxer, is almost like the kiss of death. What I saw was a shot fighter, who is being milked by his team. Sorry to the gentleman Bute, but a rematch makes no sense now. I know it will happen, but it is only for money.

Obvious troll is obvious.

i agree with Grachev. it was obvious who was doing more damage and dictating the pace. Isn’t boxing supposed to be about clean punching and who’s doing more damage? Bute basically was reluctant to engage and won the bout because it was his hometown. 7-5 is the best you could give Bute because his face told the story. he was getting hit with the better shots. It was a close fight nonetheless and to say anything otherwise, means you don’t know much about how to score a bout.

I think Bute can do better in a rematch…in the fight (with Froch) he basically said “c’mon, hit me” and boy did he get hit. I don’t think he believed Froch hit that hard, he stood there and allowed himself to get hit, after he felt the power, it was over! He couldn’t regain composure.

The Cobra will punish him in Montreal just like I said he would in Nottingham, going down to china town again.

“So-so performance” is a compliment. To my eyes, Bute fought like a guy who was scared to death of getting knocked out again. Still, the outcome was predictable: Bute by Decision.
