If the ref wasn't on Bute's side and didn't award him the first Andrade fight would people say such things about a guy who was KTFO by a guy who has never won a World Title?
Bute's resume is sad. It's littered with guys whose best days were at Middleweight and the common thread is that he has never fought guys who were anything other than face first sluggers. It's ridiculous to have 8 defenses and never face a legit boxer, which is exactly what he has accomplished.
I doubt he will be willing to leave Montreal to fight the S6 winner, and the onus should be on him to do so. He will say he is willing to fight in the US, but when it comes down to it he will say sh*t like "we can sell more tickets in Canada eh?"
