Bute did great in the rematch but the man should already have a ko loss to a fighter that's C-level at best. Berto has never been stopped, or close to it by a fighter of C-level. That's the difference.
Yes he has.
And, if you look at that fight you would see Bute was up by 9 by the way. And, Bute really only struggles for a half a round during the whole fight. He was in control for the first 11 and a half rounds.
