Froch would have smashed hagler. Froch? is an animal and ward had the toughest fight here. Official score 115-113 twice.
If these scores are wrong then hopkins won all 12 against calzaghe and Peterson won all 12 against khan, simples

Bute fans he is not in this level. Get him to fight Froch first. Ward will embarass him.

One thing I? can see from these fight…Andre is hard to hit, and Carl Froch has got no toes and he is so so so slow!

@Moldovenix Bold prediction, I think another unanimous decision? for Ward, if Bute beats someone on a high level like Kessler or a good enough defensive boxer like Dirrell first, I might change my prediction but as both fighters are now I just doubt Bute has the ring-savvy to deal with Ward.

Oh and Props to Froch, he became? a fan of his during this Tournament, probably P4P the Toughest Man In Boxing!!!

OTKP March 2, 2012 at 11:18 pm

I would be bored too if the guy I was rooting for really couldn’t do much the entire fight and got PICKED APART and Countered after every punch he threw hahaha

Congrats To Ward…DOMINATING PERFORMANCE! HE should be Top 3? P4P to start the New Year!

@JackRedmond1993 They’re slating him because the top supermiddles were in the Super6 and he’s fought none of them so? how can he be the best on the planet?

froch says he can beat ward but i don’t think he can. not over 12 rounds…only by knockout. wards defence is just too good and froch ain’t got one. when they were fighting on the inside ward would let off his punches and score then as soon as froch would throw his back,? wards hands would at the side of his head stopping froch from connecting. wards got as good a boxing brain as mayweather…

Maybe in your dreams. Bute will win by KO within 7 rounds.?

@Beatbyawhiteboy He may have the natural gifts but he’s mostly looked that way against much lesser opponents. Bute may be faster than Froch and Kessler, but who on Bute’s resume wouldn’t get beat by either one of those guys? Lucian has the power edge over Ward but that’s it, Ward is still faster, and it’s hard to say Bute is more skilled than a guy who’s? probably one of the top 5 technicians in the sport. Bute just hasn’t been tested yet and it will bite him in the ass against an elite 168lber.

@webandreweb Yes, I believe Froch will beat Bute. Froch is tougher than Bute… Yes he lost twice, but he lost to elite competition, and he´s never been knocked out. He has a granite chin. Bute is a tremendous body? puncher, maybe thats the only way he can stop Froch… But regardless, I´ll put my money on Froch.

@webandreweb,that would be easy money,like taking candy from a baby,thats a bet i wouldnt even think twice to take.?

SuperGeronimo999 March 3, 2012 at 8:56 am

@webandreweb: I bet Froch will win against Bute, 100% sure. But Kessler & Ward would do a better Job, Kessler is stronger than Froch, and Ward? is faster than Froch. But Froch would still win against Bute.

Bute is better than people think; his footwork is a bit suspect but he throws punches from unusual angles and he’s very quick. He also has tremendous range and nips in and out. If he fights Ward then I think he will surprise people; Ward should win? as he’s as slippery as an eel, but Bute may well make it very close as there styles are fairly similar.

@superkombatromania OK, whatever, we will see what he can do against Froch.? Maybe Im wrong and he´s better than what I thought. I hope he shuts my mouth… but until then, just STFU ! And by the way, I´m not Turkish ( just my username ), I´m British. : )

superkombatromania March 3, 2012 at 4:17 pm

@MrTurkishblue Amateur level is for Turkish boxing! Here we talk of professional level. So what Golovkin knocked out Bute in the amateurs? Since then Bute left Romania? and prepared and improved level in Canada. This is pathetic, you are just envious! People talking of Bute and are “Butards” 🙂 because he is very good.

The reason Ward wont fight Bute is because after 2 years of the toughest super six bouts He rightfully deserves an easy fight. Bute who refused to join the Super Six so he could protect his record cowardly then wants to challenge the? winner. Weak and spinneless move by Bute.
