Bute vs Froch, who ya got and why?

Heard about this fight a week ago - wish we could get more fights like this, especially on a network. Either way, I have Bute by decision if the UK judges don't screw him over. He's too quick and won't get caught up in the Nottingham crowd. Froch is a good fighter, but quick guys give him fits.

The Canadian in me wants to say Bute, but I think Froch takes this one by decision.
It'll be close, but Froch has more big-fight experience and I think that'll give him the edge he needs for a very close fight.

I'd be very surprised if Froch wins this one. I'm also surprised he's less than a 2-1 underdog.

Why is this fight on a Monday or am I missing something?

I've been working too hard-I was thinking March was May. I thought the fight was days away.

I know very little about the other guy (I don't really follow boxing), but since it's in Nottingham I'll say Froch wins on points.

Off topic somewhat, but Froch's mum and step-dad used to run the pub in the village where I live. Rumour is that his mum got around a bit lol

Off topic a little, but interesting. Are you going to the fight or thinking about going?

I don't have any idea how Bute will be outside of Quebec...I've only ever seen him fight in Montreal, so I'll have to say Froch. But I'd be happy to be wrong...I'm not a big Froch fan.

This should be a good one. I like Bute in this fight but I think Froch might get a hometown decision...
