I would like to see a match up between Bute and AA, if Bute chose to continue fighting, would be a great bounce back type of fight.
I don't think anyone's ever criticised Abe's beard or toughness before. It's his severe limitations as a fighter that are his (rather large) problem.
Agree though, this fight might be an interesting one. I'd still pick Bute to win, provisionally, though we have no idea what his mental state is like at the moment. Probably not good.
