We might not get Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr, but how great would a fight be between Ward and Bute?
Both fighters would be undefeated and the three major titles could be unified. In terms of boxing, it would be a dream fight. It is definitely one of the top five fights that could happen right now in boxing.
In order to have this fight, Bute must start by winning his bout vs. The Cobra. It won't be an easy task, as fighting in Nottingham, a very hostile environment, is a huge challenge.
This fight is worth watching simply because it will be an exciting fight. Bute is probably the better fighter, but Froch has the home advantage, the experience and (I believe) a small psychological edge. Again, check the picture and you'll understand.
In my opinion, this fight could be won in the first four to six rounds. Bute must own the ring early on. He can't wait too long to do so as he won't get the favor of judges in close rounds. He also needs to get into Froch's head.
As for Froch, his goal will be to put doubt in Bute's mind right away. In the first rounds, he must hit him hard to show to Bute that it will be the hardest fight of his career. Froch must send the message that this fight will be a war.
Bute has never been in a war in the ring before.
Things could be very interesting on May 26.
